He didn't let him drink and advised him to focus on his work: Ben Affleck's best friend Matt Damon warned him that he would have problems in his marriage to Jennifer Lopez

Ben Affleck's best friend Matt Damon was sure from the very beginning that the actor would have problems again in Ben's second marriage to Jennifer Lopez, DailyMail reports, citing insiders.

"Matt tried to warn Ben when he started dating J.Lo again that this could happen. Matt was there to help Ben pick himself up after their first breakup, and he felt like it was going to happen again," the insider says.

According to the insider, Damon advised Ben to focus on his own work rather than Lopez's projects. "When things started falling apart, Matt told Ben that he supported whatever he did, but he wanted him to step up and focus on his own work. Ben spent a lot of time focusing on J.Lo's projects, just like the first time. Matt said to Ben, 'What has she ever done for your career?'

Ben, according to the insider, has always listened to Matt, with whom he has been friends for many years, including because he admires his friend’s strong marriage: Damon has been married to Luciana Barroso since 2005.

Matt Damon also tried to keep Ben from drinking again amid the marital problems. "Matt is Ben's only real friend. He kept him from drinking again and was there to make sure he stayed sober," the source claims.

According to other sources, Ben is supported not only by his best friend, but also by his ex-wife: Jennifer Garner has keys to his apartment, where she leaves her things and sometimes spends the night when Affleck needs support.

Jennifer Lopez, 54, and Ben Affleck, 51, are trying their best to save their marriage, which has been jeopardized by their excessive publicity. However, as their relatives report, the spouses cannot agree on this issue: Ben cannot stand excessive attention to himself, while Jennifer, on the contrary, enjoys it.
