I’m not going to say that’s the face of someone who knows their way around a bottle. No really, I’m not going to, because that’s what my face looks like after a two Egg McMuffin breakfast. But in Ben Affleck’s case, at least according to InTouch, that’s the face of a dude who might not be sober at the moment.
Last month, Ben Affleck his girlfriend Lindsay Shookus were spotted at a liquor store in Maine. It was a little weird considering that earlier this year, Ben Affleck admitted that he had gone to rehab for alcohol issues. Cut to this week when InTouch’s source claims that he was drinking at an Emmys after-party on Sunday night.
“He ordered water at the bar, but a server brought him over the alcoholic drink once he sat down at the table. He drank all of it.”
The source adds that Lindsay drank champagne, so the drink brought over to the table wasn’t hers. A source close to Ben told InTouch: “Ben continues to focus on a balanced lifestyle.”
However, Gossip Cop claims In Touch’s source must have mistaken Ben for another bloaty award-winning actor. Gossip Cop “has learned” that InTouch’s story is inaccurate. A source close to Ben tells Gossip Cop that it’s just not true that he was drinking after the Emmys.
So Ben might be drinking again or he’s still sober. One thing is for sure: Ben was papped leaving a liquor store in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, and he was carrying a big brown paper bag. A bag most likely filled with bottles of alcohol, but who says they were for drinking? It could have been beer Ben bought to rinse into his hair to add body and shine. Who knows what kind of fancy upkeep that mane on his head requires.
