This should become as a little surprise that being a celebrity is stressful. When the eyes of the world are on you, the expectations on the shoulders of the celebrity are heavier than ever. The actor Ben Affleck has known that from a very young age, and his tenure as Batman only intensified the issue.
Following his work on the movie Justice League, the A list actor chose to step away from the role to focus on himself, but many of the fans were left to wonder why the actor left just ahead of The Batman. An interview that happened with the actor answered the question.
Recently, the New York Times spoke with Affleck as the actor continues his journey towards sobriety. The star, who has been openly checked into rehab several times in the last couple of years, discusses his recovery in the lengthy feature.
The actor told that he showed somebody The Batman script, then he thought that the script was good. He also said that he would drink himself to death if you go through what he just went through again.
It is no secret that the actor went through some rough patches with the DC Extended Universe. Zach Snyder amassed a stellar cast for making his films, but Batman Vs Superman was critically panned. The release of the Justice League also made many things worse, which left the fans to vent at whomever they could find.
The actor was left to burden and much of the blame along with his co-stars, but those harsh critiques can only make something very worse. To protect himself and also his future, he left The Batman for another star to tackle while he just backed up.
Now the actor is very much ready to approach his career from a new angle as he has a new film coming out. For the first time in a very long time, we know that Batman can save Gotham City on his own without the star, and the actor seems to be all better for it.
