“…She Shames Me Every Day”
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were once Hollywood sweethearts. Everything changed when the couple announced their split. It broke everyone’s hearts because the actress was accused of cheating on her allegedly with a nanny. But before it fell down, there were times when nothing could be sweeter than their chemistry. The two starred in Daredevil together but instead of romancing each other, they kicked** each other!
Daredevil was released in 2003 and starred Ben as Matt Murdock. Garner starred as Elektra, a martial arts expert and Matt’s love interest.
Interestingly enough, although the duo played lovers in the film, they also had to shoot some action sequences together. Given Ben Affleck’s filmography, you’d think he’d be cool about it, but interestingly, he once admitted to his ex-wife Jennifer Garner embarrassing him. He told MTV News, “Jennifer is great, she’s amazing. She is better at [the fighting] nor me She’s had so much training from the Alias thing, and she’s a dancer, so she embarrasses me every day.”
Alias was an action drama released in 2001 where Jennifer Garner played the role of Sydney, a dangerous agent. She agreed with Ben Affleck but said he learned quickly. Speaking to Step 9, she said, “I had a year of Alias under my belt as a boot camp where I fought every few days, so I came in probably more confident than Ben. But the annoying thing was how quickly it caught up. Me, I was a little cocky after the first few days, and then all of a sudden, it was kind of crushing for me, and that was a problem for me. But, yeah, I, I trained, you know, I was a ballet dancer growing up, and then I trained for Alias and, and I always fought throughout the year.”
Interestingly, Ben visited Garner during her next shoot, but instead of being protective of her, he encouraged her to make her action sequences more authentic. She told Collider, “He was visiting the (Kingdom) set the day I shot this fight scene, and I thought it would make him a little nervous to see him push me against the wall harder and harder with everything. but he was a little too calm about it. Between us, I thought it could be a little more, ‘My lady! You’d better be careful with her.’ It was just like, ‘Go! Go for it, babe! Harder!’”
Well, they were definitely a great couple before life happened.
For more such details, expect Koimoi.
