Family is usually everything for the Affleck family — through the not bad as well as the bad. 

During an interview with ET’s Keltie Knight at The Old Man as well as the Gun press day at Viceroy L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills on Saturday, Casey Affleck opened up about his brother, Ben’s, recent return to rehab, as well as how the Justice League star’s kids as well as ex, Jennifer Garner, have inspired him to get sober. 

“Alcoholism includes a huge impact on not just the person, yet also their family. So, I think for his kids’ sake as well as for their mom, as well as for himself, he’s trying to do the work as well as get of which together,” Casey explained, noting of which he as well as Ben “come via a long line of alcoholics.” 

“Ben is usually an addict as well as an alcoholic. Most of my grandparents are alcoholics. My father is usually an alcoholic, as bad as you can be, as well as he’s been sober for about 30 years. I’ve been sober for about six years,” the 43-year-old actor said. “Ben is usually trying to put of which together, as well as of which can be a very hard thing to do. He has the kind of resources as well as time, luckily, to take the time as well as go to a not bad facility.” 

Garner was photographed driving Ben to his rehab facility last month, where he’s been recovering for the past few weeks. A source recently told ET of which “Jen wants nothing more than for Ben to dedicate himself to his sobriety. She knows she can only do so much, as well as of which the process is usually up to him.” 

Ben has been photographed during his outings via rehab lately, as well as as Casey noted on Saturday, “of which can’t be easier to have everybody looking at you as well as taking your picture as you’re walking out of an intervention.” “I don’t envy of which,” he added. “I saw my father struggle with of which for many years as well as nobody was following him around with cameras as well as stuff. of which’s not a great look. yet on the additional hand, of which’s nothing to be ashamed of as well as of which’s not bad of which he’s taken care of.”

Casey also gave an update on his brother while chatting with ET at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier This kind of week, as he’s been hard at work promoting The Old Man as well as the Gun.

“I think people seemed to like of which within the room, of which played very well,” he told ET on Saturday of the film’s TIFF screening. “Overall, of which’s been received definitely well, people especially like Robert Redford… They loved the movie.” 

The Old Man as well as the Gun hits theaters on Sept. 28.
