His representatives said he was busy with the film. He did not even come out to support his best friend Matt Damon for his Oscar nomination for the Martian this year.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Garner not only came out to the Oscars and the Vanity Fair party, looking greater than ever bit also shared her story with the Vanity Fair magazine.
She told the magazine that her relationship with Ben was on the rocky road long before the rumors of his cheating started to surface. She said that their marriage had not been for the cameras.
It was real and it had been very important for her to stay committed in it. She added that their marriage started falling apart when he started to not pay attention to her.
Ben Affleck was scheduled to give an interview the very next day in which everyone hoped he would comment on Jen’s interview. He bailed on the interview on the pretence of a migraine and requested to reschedule.
He got his wish and he gave an interview this week to New York Times in which he said that Jennifer had talked to him about what she was going to say before the interview.
He said that she had told her that she needed to talk about it and get it out there. He had previously refrained from talking about the divorce in public but he said that now he had to because if no one clarified the matters, they will end up in a somewhat messed up narration somewhere on the internet.
He said that Jennifer was a beautiful person and it was unfortunate that their marriage had ended. They were still on very good terms. In fact he had met her that morning.

He said that he will have his family visiting him during the summers when he will be shooting for Justice League and they will vacation in Europe as a family.
