“We met on ‘Pearl Harbor,’ which people hate, but we fell in love on ‘Daredevil.’ By the way, she won most of the fights in the movie, which was a pretty good predictor of what would happen down the road — my wife, holding swords and beating the living s— out of me.”
But Ben was dating Jennifer Lopez at the time. Lopez and Affleck even got engaged later in 2002.
