Actor Ben Affleck was recently recorded having trouble getting out of a parked car in a street parking spot. The incident, captured on camera, shows Affleck parking his black luxury Mercedes sideways in a parking spot, only to find himself blocked in by two other cars.
A Frustrating Standstill
Despite the setback, Affleck took a moment to step out of the car for a cigarette and coffee break before attempting to leave. After about 45 minutes, the actor managed to get back into the car and maneuver his way out of the tight spot.
The video shows Affleck appearing to hit the car in front of him several times in the process.

A Fleet of Fancy Cars
Affleck, who is no stranger to luxury vehicles, owns a number of high-end cars in addition to his Mercedes. His collection includes a Ford Bronco, a convertible worth approximately 1.9 million dollars, a Lexus RX, a Tesla Model S, a classic Chevrolet Chevelle SS, a yellow Lamborghini Urus, a Bentley Bentayga, and a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
A Loving Tribute to the Twins
Last week, Affleck's ex-wife Jennifer Garner paid tribute to their blended family in celebration of the 15th birthday of their twins, Max and Emme. Sharing a series of photos on Instagram, Garner gushed about the joy her twins bring to her life, writing, "You bring me so much joy and happiness to my heart and soul.
I love you beyond forever HAPPY BIRTHDAY." She also included several throwback photos of the couple from their first relationship, referencing both their history and her upcoming album in her hashtags.
A History of Heartbreak: Reflecting on the Past
Lopez, who had previously been engaged to Affleck in 2003 before their relationship ultimately fell apart, revealed that the prospect of planning a wedding with him once again brought up unresolved emotions and memories.
“We were planning to get married in August in Savannah [Georgia],” she recounted during the Jimmy Kimmel Live show. "That was like, the family's gonna be there, everybody's gonna be there. And it was so stressful." The singer-actress went on to reveal that the intense stress and pressure of planning a wedding brought on feelings of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“And a month before — and I don’t know if you guys know this, but 20 years ago, we were supposed to get married, and it kinda all fell apart back then, and this time, it was like we, I, absolutely had a little PTSD,” Lopez shared.
