It appears that life is moving on for Ben Affleck.

On Monday, the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice star was all smiles while attending the world premiere of The Leisure Class, a Project Greenlight revival — where Affleck is an executive producer with bestie Matt Damon.

The Argo director did not stop to talk to the press but did take the time to speak with fans and pose for photos — and he even teased one fan who asked him to sign a Daredevil poster. LOLz!

Though, we’re not entirely shocked by this move as the Hollywood hunk was spotted wearing his wedding ring on the red carpet amidst his divorce to Jennifer Garner.

The Hollywood powerhouses announced their split earlier this summer — but have been regularly spotted donning their wedding bands. Hmm, very inneresting.

It’s also recently been rumored that the 42-year-old had an affair with his kids’ former nanny Christine Ouzounian. However, this piece of gossip has since been denied by Affleck’s team.

In fact, the Oscar winner’s BFF took the lead and spoke on behalf of the A-Lister on the red carpet.

He stated:

“He’s great, he’s great. He’s got a big smile on his face.”

Now that’s friendship! The Bourne Identity actor even laughed off questions about his Good Will Hunting co-star’s upcoming birthday.

He quipped:

“I wish him well you know, but he’s 43. It’s not 40. It’s not 45. It’s like 43. You know it’s a forgettable birthday. I don’t even remember my 43rd birthday!”

It’s said that once inside the venue for the premiere, the father-of-three remained relatively tight lipped by only adding a few words to his partner’s introduction and left shortly after.

We’re so glad to see Ben out and about with his close friend by his side. Nonetheless, we’re still hoping Bennifer 2.0 will eventually be able to work it out.

We can dream, right?! HA!
