Can Hollywood handle the coupling of super A-list stars Halle Berry and Ben Affleck? We might soon find out.
A new report from OK! magazine claims the 43-year-old actor has his eyes on Berry, who recently split from her husband Olivier Martinez. Affleck, who is also going through a divorce with Jennifer Garner, is reportedly ready to act on his long-standing crush on the Oscar-winning actress.
"Ben has had an epic crush on Halle ever since he saw that sex scene in Swordfish," a source said, speaking of the 2001 crime thriller. The insider claims it's only a matter of time before Affleck makes his move and he already has a plan to woo Berry.
"He's now trying to find a role for her in one of his next movies by way of getting to know her, but his friends just wish he'd take her out on a date and get her out of his system, rather than spend four months wooing her on a movie set." the source added.
But a separate source tells Gossip Cop the story is "not true at all" and Affleck is not crushing on Berry.
It remains to be seen how this [potential] love story will play out, but if things go in Affleck's favor, just imagine that media circus.
