Ben Affleck was hitting the skids in a big way in the days leading up to his current stint in rehab, according to People magazine.
"Ben had been drinking alone for days," a source tells People. "He was in bad shape. He had barely been eating and had not showered. It didn’t take much convincing. He wanted to go, and he cooperated."
Affleck entered rehab for the third time (the second in just over a year) on August 22nd. His ex Jennifer Garner, 46, drove him there after reportedly staging an intervention. Paparazzi captured shots of The Batman star looking distraught and disheveled on the way to rehab.
JENNIFER GARNER STEPS OUT
Garner, meanwhile, made her first red carpet appearance since helping get Affleck to rehab. On Tuesday night, she stepped out for the premiere of Peppermint in L.A. She wore a one-shoulder mini-dress with a long train and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
The mother of three appeared happy and at peace, posing with co-star Annie Ilonzeh and director Pierre Morel.
Peppermint lands in theaters September 7th.
