Marriage separations aren’t always acrimonious. In fact, some celebrity couples can emerge from difficult divorces on friendly terms – even though they may be under the microscope of media scrutiny. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, for example, survived a widely publicized breakup seemingly relatively unscathed. And when Affleck opened up about his health struggles, he appeared to show nothing but love for his ex-wife.
Naturally, Affleck is a household name to millions. But contrary to popular belief, the world-famous actor isn’t a native Bostonian. Instead, he was born on August 15, 1972, in Berkeley, which lies northeast of San Francisco. Then, when he was aged three, his family relocated to Falmouth, Massachusetts – although they later put down roots in Cambridge, just outside Boston.
