When news of a split in the marriage between Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck broke, rumors began circulating that a Ben Affleck/Margot Robbie relationship was the reason behind the couple’s split. Ben Affleck and Margot Robbie are working together on the set of the Suicide Squad. Affleck, as everyone knows by now, has taken over the cape and cowl as Batman. Robbie is starring as The Joker’s obsessed lover, Harley Quinn.
What kind of world would it be if Batman stole the woman of his arch-enemy? A source has come forward to a magazine called Woman’s Day and given a claim about how Ben Affleck sees Margot Robbie.
“Ben has had the hots for Margot ever since he saw her in The Wolf of Wall Street. As far as Ben is concerned, Margot is the sexiest woman in Hollywood right now.”
This unnamed source has been refuted by another source who spoke with the Daily Mail Australia. This source claims that Ben Affleck has “barely spent any time with Margot” while on set. Now, just because Affleck may not be spending much time with Robbie on set does not mean the two are not spending time together off-set.
Margot Robbie is said to be very happy in her relationship with Tom Ackerley. As for Affleck, some sources claim that problems with his marriage arose out of the fact that he was talking with a former girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez. Another theory going around is that Affleck’s alleged gambling and drinking have led to the relationship split.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced that they were going to be getting a divorce on the day following their ten-year anniversary. Garner and Affleck began dating in 2003 after the couple finished filming Daredevil. The fact that Affleck and Garner began dating after filming a superhero movie helps give credence to the rumor that Affleck and Robbie may be romantically involved.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner appear to not have any bad blood with each other at this time. The couple has even decided to stay living together for the sake of the children that they share.
