Someone needs to tell Ben Affleck to cheer up.

The guy is playing Batman, after all!

Director Zack Snyder has unveiled our second photo of Affleck as the Caped Crusader, a role he’ll take on in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, captioning the picture with a simple "#75" in honor of Batman's 75th anniversary.

And the way Affleck looks, you'd think all that Batman casting bashing had really gotten to him:

Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the top-earning actors in Hollywood, and you may find yourself astonished not only by the stars who took the top two spots, but also by the staggering amount some A-listers pulled in this past year. 

Amazingly, the highest paid actor of 2013 has managed to do it again, as Robert Downey, Jr. took home a cool $75 million thanks to his ongoing role as Tony Stark/Iron Man. 

Mark Wahlberg
The former Marky Mark earned $32 million in the past year, thanks to roles in films like Lone Survivor and Pain & Gain.

Downey played hardball before signing on to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he's reportedly been rewarded with his biggest pay day to date.

And just how big has Marvel's tent pole franchise become? The number five spot on the list is none other than Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, who - despite being paid about half what Downey pulled in last year - still took home a not-too-shabby $39 mill.

But while the actors in the gallery above certainly aren't hurting, the movie industry ain't what it used to be and of all the past year's top earning actors, only RDJ (just barely) cracked the top 10 on Forbes' 2014 list of the most powerful entertainers.

Wherever he goes, Ben Affleck seems to immediately gravitate to the nearest blackjack table, and his wife (understandably) just doesn't get it. 

The A-list couple was scrutinized last month after Affleck was banned from the blackjack tables of a Vegas casino after allegedly counting cards.

Their marriage ended up under the microscope again this month after Ben was kicked out of another casino, reportedly prompting Jen to decide they should spend the summer apart.

Now a source tells People that Jen has stopped trying understand Ben's compulsive gambling. She just wants it stop before it ruins their reputations and relationship:

Happy Father's Day from The Hollywood Gossip! It's time to celebrate the man in your life who, well, gave you life. Or at least the one who helped raise you.

Hollywood is notorious for its unflattering portrayals of fathers as being bumbling and incompetent men who have no business raising babies.

In real life, there are some celebrity dads (and regular, non-celebrity dads, too) who throw that trope right out the window and proving that they really do deserve that Dad of the Year award.

From being there for preschool pickup to rearranging work schedules to handle the nightly bedtime routine to coaching little league teams, our favorite famous dads do it all and do it in style.

Join us in celebrating 15 celebrity dads we love below!

Channing Tatum

Ben Affleck was banned from a Vegas casino last month, and rather than taking the incident as a sign that he should change his ways, Ben has reportedly begun gambling more.

His addiction may soon cost him his marriage, if rumors are to be believed.

The actor is filming Batman vs. Superman in Michigan and sources say the Oscar winner has been spending the majority of his free time in the casinos of nearby Windsor, Ontario.

One Windsor resident tells Star magazine that Ben's gambling is so problematic that he's unwelcome at most betting tables:

"Ben walked in and went straight to the card games. He sat down and played for about 20 minutes before security heard he was there. They made the dealers stop what they were doing and asked him to leave. Ben seemed pretty mad."

Insiders close to his family say it's not just casino workers who are fed up with Ben:

In the real world, there are two rules to follow for a healthy work environment:

  1. Don't steal someone else's food from the fridge.
  2. Don't date your coworkers.

Both make for awkward water cooler run-ins and should probably be avoided.

Unless, of course, you're a famous movie star who dates other famous movie stars and you decide to date your coworkers. Then things just get interesting and awkward.

Especially when the characters you're portraying are together on screen.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum
Channing Tatum met now-wife Jenna Dewan on the set of Step Up. She was totally impressed by his moves.

Why? LOVE SCENES. Look no further than Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut to see what we mean. Pretty sure Keith Urban's neeeeeever watching THAT movie.

Guy love, that’s all it is... Guy love, he’s mine I’m his... There’s nothing gay about it in our eyes... It’s guy love, between two guys.

When so many of Hollywood's finest fall into the downward spiral of alcoholism and drug abuse, it's sort of refreshing to find celebrities who manage to pull themselves back from the brink.

Or avoid it completely. Take Blake Lively, who prefers curling up with her hottie husband Ryan Reynolds to relax instead of unwinding with a glass of wine.

With a husband like Ryan Reynolds, who can blame her?

Blake Lively
Blake Lively is a foodie instead of a drinker and prefers curling up on the couch with husband Ryan Reynolds to relax instead of pouring herself a glass of wine.

Stars like Christina Ricci and Russell Brand have a well-documented history of drug and alcohol abuse, but were thankfully able to get themselves clean and stay that way.

After allegedly getting busted counting cards, Ben Affleck was banned from playing blackjack at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas recently.
