Actor Ben Affleck appeared intoxicated at a Halloween party in West Hollywood months after celebrating one year of sobriety.
Wearing a dark suit and a skull mask, the 47-year-old actor, who opened up about his recovery on Instagram earlier in the day, is seen grabbing hold of an SUV to sturdy himself after departing the Unicef Masquerade ball. It was not clear what caused Affleck to stumble.

HA, you got me. I’m dating. But let’s be serious for a moment and talk about something that is actually important. I have been in recovery for over a year and part of that is helping out others. @themidnightmission is an incredible organization that helps those in need with housing, training, development and recovery. I’m making a donation today because there are people battling addiction every day that don’t have the resources and need help. @raya, you in? Who else is with me? Click the link in my bio to donate.
“Sobriety is difficult and elusive for everyone struggling with addiction,” a source told Page Six on Sunday. “Ben has acknowledged he’s going to slip up from time to time … it was never as if this was simply behind him.” “Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle,” he wrote at the time. “Because of that, one is never really in or out of treatment. It is a full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family.”
Affleck completed a 40-day treatment program for alcohol addiction at the facility and has been regularly attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
