He began his career as a child when he starred in the PBS educational series The Voyage of the Mimi (1984, 1988).

He later appeared in the independent coming-of-age comedy Dazed and Confused (1993) and various Kevin Smith films, including Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997) and Dogma (1999).

Affleck gained wider recognition when he and childhood friend Matt Damon won the Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for writing Good Will Hunting (1997), which they also starred in.

He then established himself as a leading man in studio films, including the disaster film Armageddon (1998), the war drama Pearl Harbor (2001), and the thrillers The Sum of All Fears and Changing Lanes (both 2002).

Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner from 2005 to 2018. They began dating in August 2004, having established a friendship on the sets of Pearl Harbor (2001) and Daredevil (2003).

They were married on June 29, 2005, in a private Turks and Caicos ceremony.

Victor Garber, who officiated the ceremony, and his partner, Rainer Andreesen, were the only guests.

Affleck and Garner have three children together: daughters Violet Anne (born December 2005) and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth (born January 2009), and son Samuel Garner (born February 2012).

In their divorce filings, Affleck and Garner sought joint physical and legal custody of their children.

They announced their separation in June 2015, with Affleck continuing to live in a guesthouse at the family home until mid-2017.

They jointly filed for divorce in April 2017 and it was finalized in October 2018.

In 2020, Affleck described the divorce as “the biggest regret of my life”and “a painful experience, even if you’re on the best possible terms and you agree it’s the best choice.”

The reason he didn’t want a divorce was, “I really didn’t wanna be a split family with my children.”

In 2021, he opened up further saying, “we had a marriage that didn’t work, this happens,” and that “we tried, we tried, we tried because we had kids.

And both of us felt like we don’t want this to be the model that our kids see of marriage.”
