Ben Affleck, who checked into rehab back in 2001 to battle his alcohol problem, was reportedly spotted at the Sundance Film Festival throwing back a couple of drinks. Despite a public declaration that he was through with drinking, both he and co-star Tommy Lee Jones were seen toasting the success of their movie “The Company Men” together.
At the party for his new movie, Affleck “immediately sat down at a VIP table and grabbed the bottle of Absolut in front of him and poured a drink,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
That’s not a wise move when you’ve sought out help before. But at Sundance the people around Ben were so shocked by his drinking that they cleared all the photographers out of the area to protect him from what could have been career-wrecking press. Lets hope this was a one time thing and Ben keeps his act together.
