Ben Affleck Seeks Sweet Southern Home
Jennifer Lopez may be in his heart, but "Daredevil" star Ben Affleck has Georgia on his mind. The actor is said to have made an offer on a $3.45 million, four-bedroom house on Savannah's East Gordon Street a few weeks ago, reports New York magazine.
"It's Charlestonian," broker B. Moody of Cora Bett Thomas Realty tells the magazine. "It has a guest house and beautiful side gardens."
Savannah's antebellum attitude has been drawing increased star power of late. Affleck apparently fell in love with the old-South town a few years back, while filming "Forces of Nature" there with actress Sandra Bullock. (She bought a $3.8 million "beachfront compound" there in 2001, the mag says.)
Rocker John Mellencamp also is said to have taken a pass by the Gordon Street home; he apparently almost bought the nearby Mercer House -- made famous by the book and movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" -- but the deal fell through.
Lopez, meanwhile, has some news of her own coming up: The video for her new single, "I'm Glad," debuts April 8 on MTV's "Making the Video," reports Launch.com. The actress and singer will appear that morning in an exclusive interview on "Good Morning America."
