Ben Affleck NOT Pursuing Sienna Miller, Despite Report
According to OK!, “sparks are flying” between Affleck and Miller, who are gearing up to work together on the upcoming movie Live By Night, a crime drama set in the Prohibition Era. Affleck is set to direct and star in the film, which also stars Miller.
Basically, the tabloid created a story about the two actors getting close because both of them have dated co-stars in the past. Affleck met Jennifer Garner on the set of Daredevil, while Miller dated Jude Law and Daniel Craig, her co-stars from Alfie and Layer Cake, respectively.
Regardless of each hooking up with former co-workers, Affleck and Miller’s relationship is purely professional. Still, a so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Ben is thrilled to have his freedom,” adding that the actor is “really impressed with Sienna and thinks she’s ‘gorgeous.'”
Considering Affleck cast Miller in his film, one would hope he’s “impressed” with her acting skills. And whether or not he said the actress is “gorgeous,” one would be hard pressed to find anyone who didn’t agree Miller is attractive. However, Affleck hiring her for a movie does not mean he’s pursuing her romantically.
Gossip Cop has corrected numerous false OK! stories about Affleck, particularly since his divorce announcement this past June. In fact, we most recently busted the tabloid for fabricating a report that Garner was “calling off the divorce.” This latest tale about Affleck wooing Miller is similarly untrue. A source close to Affleck assures Gossip Cop the report about him and Miller is “totally unfounded.”
