Ever since a video surfaced of the actor drunkenly stumbling on Halloween, his focus has been on “being healthy,” the source tells Us, and part of that is eating right and exercising. “He’s always enjoyed working out,” the source says.

Affleck, 47, is leaning on his loved ones for support as well. “He’s anchored himself around his family,” adds the insider. Not surprisingly, his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, has been his rock through it all — she was the one who pushed him to go to rehab in 2018 — and Affleck is trying not to disappoint her.
