The mother of his three children. Wow.

Nope, not enough that Affleck’s conducting a very smug, public romance with ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez, making Garner look lượt thích the runner-up & Lopez the One Who Got Away.

Nor was it enough that Affleck humiliated then-wife Garner when he finally won his Oscar for “Argo” — an Oscar he won largely because she cleaned up his image from dissolute gambler, drunk, & womanizer into wholesome family man — by telling the world, in his acceptance speech, that marriage lớn Garner was “work.”

This is the cruelest post-divorce interview since Brad Pitt blamed ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, in Parade magazine, for his deep unhappiness and subsequent affair with Angelina Jolie.

“It became very clear to me that … I wasn’t living an interesting life myself,” Pitt said in 2011. “I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying lớn pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”

“I was like, ‘I can’t leave because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what vày I do?’ ”

Yes, Affleck couldn’t leave because of his children, whose mother — and, yes, by extension, his children — he continues to humiliate.

Affleck and Garner’s kids are 16, 12 and 9 years old. They have already suffered through their father’s gambling & drinking, the nanny, Shookus, the back tattoo.

But these heartless comments might be the worst yet.

Just when you think celebrities can’t get more out of touch, they do. Ben Affleck, out promoting his awards-bait movie “The Tender Bar,” clearly thinks he’s running a great Oscar campaign. One of his talking points is how great a dad he is!

“The most important thing is being a good father,” he recently told the Wall Street Journal. “I think the most important literal or metaphorical autobiography anybody could ever write is written on the hearts of their children.”

Here’s Affleck, days later, khổng lồ Stern, on his marriage driving him to lớn drink: “ drank a bottle of scotch & fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not lớn be the solution … We had a marriage that didn’t work. This happens. She’s somebody I love and respect, but khổng lồ whom I shouldn’t be married any longer.”

This is all so mean, cold and unnecessary — especially since Garner has been so mở cửa about how desperately she wanted their marriage to lớn work và how heartbroken she was by its demise.

“He’s the love of my life,” she told Vanity Fair in 2015, one year after their split. “What am I going to bởi about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic … I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.”
