Affleck's New Addiction

6 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck appears to have replaced his gambling habit with another pricey obsession. Friends close to the Changing Lanes star are concerned the Hollywood A-lister has cultivated a worrying addiction to shopping. Affleck blew an amazing $500,000 on one shopping spree in Las Vegas over the Thanksgiving weekend. The main beneficiaries of his generosity were his future in-laws. The wealthy star paid $150,000 in cash for a Mercedes motorcar for beau Jennifer Lopez's mother Guadalupe. He also reportedly splashed thousands more dollars on clothes and jewellery for J. Lo, Guadalaupe and Jennifer's sister Linda. A source says, "It's this addiction thing. Addicts spend like crazy, and we are concerned because we think he is exhibiting addictive behavior." »

J.Lo's Grope Caught on Camera

31 October 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Lopez had an unsuspecting audience when she groped her boyfriend Ben Affleck two weeks ago - a nearby party. The sexy Latina was filming the promo for her latest single "Jenny From The Block" at the Barefoot Bar & Grill in Los Angeles, with her reported fiance making a cameo. In between takes, J.Lo reached over to the Changing Lanes hunk, shoved her hands down the front of his trousers and gave him a squeeze, leading the actor to smile inanely. Unfortunately for the lovebirds, a bridal shower bash on the other side of the eaterie caught their playful behavior on video. Blushing Ben went over to apologize to the bride-to-be's mother for the raunchy actions. »

Sam Jackson's Booze Hell

22 April 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Reformed alcoholic Samuel L. Jackson faced his biggest challenge as an actor when he had to turn away from a shot of bourbon in his latest film. Jackson plays a recovering alcoholic in Changing Lanes and enjoyed putting a part of his own past into his troubled character - until he was served a shot of bourbon in a pivotal scene. He explains, "We were in a real bar on 7th and when I sat down and I was hovering over the drink I could smell bourbon. The guy playing the barman had poured me a real drink. I don't know if he knew, but it was there and I hadn't really smelled a drink in a long time so it was kind of like flashback time. I used to love Jack Daniels." Jackson managed to turn away from the shot, but claims his character's Alcoholics Anonymous sessions sent shudders down his spine. He adds, "I reached a point where I hated going to AA meetings because the people that go there are very depressed - because they can't drink. When I got out of rehab it was summer and people were sitting on sidewalk tables in New York, and they had their beer out there and you go home and you watch TV and it's like, `Have a Bud.' Alcoholics are really angry about things like that. One guy said AA is like going to the best restaurant in the world and having the cottage cheese plate." »

Jackson And Affleck Wear Wetsuits To Keep Out The Cold

15 April 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tough guys Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck were so cold filming new movie Changing Lanes they wore wetsuits under their clothes. Affleck admits it was a necessity during a freezing New York winter, but he thinks Jackson won't be so honest. Ben says, "It was very, very cold. It was a really cold winter and we got rained on and to avoid the actors getting hypothermia they said, 'We have this plan.' Sam wore one but he'll try and deny it. Sam's very, very cool but he was wearing a wet suit." Affleck says it's difficult to tell he's wearing the waterproof padding in the movie, but he can spot the scene. He adds, "I see it because I look like three guys in a suit." »
