Ben Affleck Credits Robert Downey Jr. and Bradley Cooper With Helping Him Get Sober

It has been a bit of a DC Comics mystery as to why Ben Affleck walked away from the role of Batman.

During an interview on Good Morning America with Diane Sawyer, he said he walked away to preserve his sobriety. He said he showed the script to someone who told him, I think the script is good. I also think you’ll drink yourself to death if you go through what you just went through again.

They were referring to his drinking in 2015 and 2016 when he was going through marital problems which eventually led to his divorce. He credits Bradley Cooper and Robert Downey, Jr for helping him stay sober, Bradley Cooper and Robert Downey, Jr have been really helpful to me and really supportive and they’re wonderful men.

Who is that person you can call and they will give you real honest advice?
