Ben Affleck has one person to thank for his recent slew of successful films: his wife, Jennifer Garner.
In a new interview with Playboy, Affleck, 41, says Garner, also 41, helped provide him with a stable home that separated him from a string of unsuccessful films and being tabloid fodder following his relationship with Jennifer Lopez.
"My wife was definitely around then," says Affleck. "Getting to know her, falling in love with her and being connected with her gave me a foundation to reach out and say, 'Okay, I'm going to do Hollywoodland. I'm going to direct Gone Baby Gone,' " Affleck said. "Those were the steps forward I needed to put positive stuff on the board."

It's the most wonderful time of the year – and we're obviously referring to the pending reveal of PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive, not the Christmas carols your local radio station is already blasting.
Until this year's head honcho of hunk-dom is revealed, here's what you missed this weekend:

It's good to know we're not the only ones who fell in love with Batkid, the 5-year-old who dressed up as Batman to fight crime in San Francisco on Friday.
Miles, who is now in remission after being diagnosed with leukemia at just 18 months of age, has become a worldwide star after the Make-a-Wish Foundation turned the city by the bay into Gotham City for one unforgettable experience.
Former Caped Crusader Christian Bale heard about Miles' adventure and told New York magazine that he thought it was "fantastic."

On Friday, November 15, San Francisco became Gotham. The city did not do this for Comic-Con, nor to film a new movie. The city did this to fulfill the dreams of a five-year-old boy named Miles with leukemia.
Miles hails from Tulelake, in Northern California. He was diagnosed with leukemia at just 18 months old, but ended treatments in June. Fortunately, he is now in remission, and ready to take on his next big, brave mission: becoming Batkid.

There are some things you just can't prepare for – even if you're Batman.
Ben Affleck admitted on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Monday night that even though he's a "big boy," he was still shocked by the uproar over his casting in the role of Batman in the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel.
"The people from the studio were like, 'We're thrilled, we're so excited ... but, listen, we want to talk to you because people go through this process and it can be trying,' " Affleck said.

At least someone has Ben Affleck's back.
Fanboys and girls melted down over the news that Affleck was set to play Batman in the next movie installment, but his pal Matt Damon thinks the 41-year-old will "be great."
"It will be terrific," Damon tells the Times of India. "I know there are a lot of people grousing on the Internet. I just think it's kind of funny. You know he's not playing King Lear – it's Batman! Certainly within his skill set."

Guess what just popped up in my inbox? A change.org petition to drop Ben Affleck as the next Batman. Really, folks? Everyone adored this double Oscar winner just a few months ago. Now it's, "Argo blank yourself, Ben?" Let's just calm down and be little Fonzies about this. After all, this isn't the first time we've collectively freaked out over Batman.

As most everyone knows, billionaire Bruce Wayne has an alter ego. But as was announced late Thursday, it's something of a surprise: Ben Affleck will play Batman in an upcoming sequel to this summer's hit Man of Steel.
For the first time, too, the Caped Crusader will join forces with Superman, again to be played by British actor Henry Cavill, 31, in the as-yet-untitled movie to be directed by Man of Steel's Zack Snyder.
The mash-up will begin production next year and be released July 17, 2015, reports EW.com. Man of Steel stars Amy Adams (as Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Diane Lane (Martha Kent) have also been announced to return.
