Ben Affleck Rushed to E.R. for Migraine

Posted on

Ben Affleck spent his Memorial Day in the emergency room of a Boston-area hospital.

“Ben Affleck was treated for a migraine at Mt. Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Mass., today,” said Affleck’s rep, Ken Sunshine, in a statement on Monday. “He was released this afternoon, and is recuperating at home.”

According to the Boston Herald, Affleck’s wife, Jennifer Garner, drove him to the hospital at around 2:30 p.m. Affleck was released about two hours later after receiving treatment in the E.R.

Affleck, 33, and Garner, 34, along with their 6-month-old daughter, Violet, are in Cambridge for the summer while Affleck directs his first feature film, Gone, Baby, Gone.

The movie is an adaptation of a 1998 novel by Boston author Dennis Lehane about two Beantown detectives who are investigating the case of a missing 4-year-old. The cast includes Morgan Freeman, Ed Harris, Michelle Monaghan and Ben’s brother, Casey Affleck.
