Ben Affleck and Sienna Miller are the victims of blatant tabloid sensationalism after paparazzi photos of them on the set of Live By Night were sold to Us Weekly.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Affleck is currently directing the movie in Boston. In addition to helming the project, he’s also co-starring in the film with Miller, as well as Zoe Saldana, Chris Messina, Scott Eastwood, Brendan Gleeson and a host of others. But because Miller is now single and Affleck is separated from Jennifer Garner, the rumor mill has been quick to link them.

Earlier this month, RadarOnline ridiculously wondered if Garner was upset about Affleck and Miller kissing in character. And then last week, OK! wrongly claimed the actor was “eyeing” Miller for a “rebound romance.” Now Us Weekly is shamefully and pathetically hopping on board.

On Thursday, the magazine published a photo of Affleck gripping Miller’s hand on set during a break from shooting. The actress is in full costume, he’s in his director’s gear, and there’s nothing outwardly affectionate or even suspicious about it. In fact, Miller and Affleck aren’t even looking at each other.

But the outlet’s headline sensationally reads, “Ben Affleck, Sienna Miller Hold Hands on Movie Set, and It’s Not for a Scene.” And the magazine asks, “What’s going on here?” Allow Gossip Cop to tell you: NOTHING.

In fact, a source close to the situation slammed the Us Weekly story to Gossip Cop, calling it “B.S.” The insider stresses that Affleck is merely Miller’s director, and even points out, “Funny no one bought the photos of him talking to his male co-stars.” Well, those would be much harder to sensationalize!
