    Ben Affleck’s ‘Wordle’ Revelation: Humility and Celebrity Showdowns

    In a candid conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, Ben Affleck has unveiled a newfound sense of humility and competition as he delves into the world of a celebrity Wordle group. The 51-year-old actor, known for his versatile career, shared his Wordle experiences and the surprising challenges he faced.

    Affleck expressed his enthusiasm for Wordle, a game akin to the popular Wordle, where players must decipher eight-letter words in three guesses. The “Argo” director, often in the limelight alongside his wife Jennifer Lopez, admitted that his foray into the celebrity Octordle group was unexpectedly humbling.

    “I expected to do fairly well, so I was seriously humbled…It’s fiercely competitive, and there’s a lot of mockery and derision. So I’m in training,” Affleck confessed.

    While the actor initially revealed the names of some of his celebrity competitors, including Matt Damon, Jason Bateman, and Bradley Cooper, he playfully adhered to the unspoken rule of Wordle: “The first rule of Wordle is don’t talk about Wordle. Unless you get it in three guesses.”

    Affleck also shared a personal setback in his Wordle journey, recounting how he had to take a hiatus from the game due to contracting COVID-19.

    “I had the no-energy COVID, where it was too much work to pick up the phone to play Octordle,” he recalled, reassuring his friends not to be too impressed, as the game was “not harder” than Wordle.

    Reflecting on his past interests, Affleck mentioned his compulsive crossword puzzle-solving mornings, believing it gave him an edge in word games. He also humorously quipped that competing against actors wasn’t a particularly high bar.

    Beyond his Wordle adventures, Affleck touched upon his enduring friendship with Matt Damon, a relationship that has garnered widespread attention since their joint venture in co-writing and co-starring in the 1997 feature film “Good Will Hunting.” This collaboration remains a significant milestone in both of their careers.

    Ben Affleck’s journey into the competitive world of Wordle provides a glimpse into the lighter side of his Hollywood life, showcasing his passion for wordplay and the camaraderie among celebrities in the digital gaming realm.
