Ben Affleck says he isn't upset over Jennifer Garner's Vanity Fair interview--the one during which she dished about the demise of their relationship.

During a recent interview with the New York Times, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star said, "She felt like she wanted to discuss it and get it out there and get it over with so she could say, 'Look, I already talked about it—I don't want to do it again.'"

"It's fine," he added. "She's allowed to talk about it."

Ben Affleck had some wonderful things to say about his ex-wife--the mother of his three children.

"Jen's great. She's a great person," he said. "We're on great terms. I just saw her this morning, so that's the reality that I live in."

Of course it's likely much easier for Ben Affleck to compliment Jennifer Garner than for her to compliment him. After all, he is the one who allegedly cheated on his wife with nanny Christine Ouzounian. He wasn't the one who was cheated on.

Affleck seems to think his work on the big screen is what people will remember him for, over his split from Jennifer Garner. Do you think that's necessarily the case?

"Even in the tough spots, if your movies are good, people will see them. And if you're not good, you can't get away with it," he said.

"Eventually it catches up with you," he added. "Both ways, good and bad."

Oh, it definitely caught up with Ben Affleck. Hopefully, for the sake of his children, things are as great between him and Jennifer Garner as he claims.

If you were Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck cheated on you with Christine Ouzounian, how would you feel?

Even Batman can't get off scot-free from that one.
