Ben Affleck went to rehab
Ben Affleck posted on his Facebook yesterday that he just got back from a trip — fun! . . . to rehab — oh right, not fun. The bartenders are terrible at that place. He wrote:
I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.
Wait a minute. If Ben just finished rehab now, that means he was probably drunk when he made Gigli in 2003. Ohhhhhhh. Everything suddenly makes sense now . . .
NOTE: Damn right I made a Gigli joke in 2017
