Ben Affleck and Halle Berry may be Hollywood's next big romance.
According to a new report, 43-year-old Affleck, who split from wife Jennifer Garner earlier this year, has had a crush on Berry, 49, for the last 14 years, and now that they are both single, he's reportedly preparing to make his move.
“Ben has had an epic crush on Halle ever since he saw that sex scene in Swordfish” back in 2001, a source revealed to OK! Magazine on Wednesday. “He’s now trying to find a role for her in one of his next movies by way of getting to know her, but his friends just wish he’d take her out on a date and get her out of his system, rather than spend four months wooing her on a movie set.”
Affleck and Garner announced they were parting ways this past summer amid rumors of his alleged affair with the couple's nanny, Chritine Ouzounian, which he denied. Meanwhile, Berry and her former partner, Olivier Martinez, revealed they were separating last month.
While it is unclear if these two have had any contact in recent years, the OK! Magazine report claimed Affleck's friends were so sure that he'd eventually make a move on the actress that they've actually started making bets about when the potential romance could begin.
