EXPRESSING AWARENESS

As reported by ET, the Oscar champ talked with a coordinator at the march about the Black Lives Matter cause specifically attached to their locale.

Activist for Save Venice, Sarah Mahir, told the publication that she was giving out flyers and addressing the crowd of people about their progressing battle to ensure the First Baptist Church.

"I literally got done speaking to the crowd and really let them know where we can stand as a community," said Mahir, "and where we can make a change together, and I turned around and Ben Affleck was standing there."

Mahir approached Affleck and introduced herself. The actor disclosed to her that he remained to hear her discourse and find out about the endeavors to spare the church.

Affleck had battled with liquor addiction from as far back as 2001.

The song is all about getting some kisses before it's too late. And that is actually what Affleck and de Armas do in the video.

Affleck had battled with liquor addiction from as far back as 2001. Talking on the factors responsible for his addiction, the actor believes his genetics may be a contributing element.

According to Affleck, two of his grandparents were heavy drinkers. So he thought that it appeared as though the dice had been rolled.

Affleck also referred to his divorce from actress Jennifer Garner as another factor. He said the agony related to the divorce affected him negatively, and he turned to liquor to abstain from managing difficult sentiments.
