Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's marriage is in trouble, according to a tabloid report - but is there an iota of truth to what celebrity gossip mag OK! claims?

A so-called “insider” says that the “stress of awards season” and Ben Affleck’s time away from home “has the exhausted couple headed for trouble.”

After Ben Affleck's Oscars speech, it's not surprising that this kind of speculation would arise. Whether it's indicative of real "trouble" is another story.

Ben Affleck's acceptance speech after winning Best Picture for Argo at the 2013 Academy Awards Sunday night was an awesomely emotional mess.

The actor, whose movie won top honors despite his personal snub in the Best Director category, was clearly choked up and caught up in the moment.

Affleck, 40, recalled how he was "just a kid" when he last triumphed for Good Will Hunting, and how he'd been "knocked down" so many times since.

The only important thing, he said through tears, is that "you gotta get up."

Then it got slightly awkward with his nod to spouse Jennifer Garner.

Despite a unique set of circumstances that made the idea feasible and rumors of his political ambitions, Ben Affleck will not be running for U.S. Senate.

"I love Massachusetts and our political process, but I am not running for office," the Argo director wrote on his Facebook page Monday, December 24.

"We are about to get a great U.S. Secretary of State and there are some phenomenal candidates in Massachusetts for his Senate seat," he added.

"I look forward to an amazing campaign."

Actor Ben Affleck is refusing comment on a slew of recent reports that he's a candidate for Massachusetts' soon-to-be vacant U.S. Senate seat.

In Washington to raise awareness about the violence plaguing Congo, Affleck was also scheduled to meet Wednesday with other D.C. lawmakers.

Bearded Ben

Among them? Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), a fellow Boston native, who is widely believed to be replacing Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in 2013.

Clinton will step down once her replacement is named by President Barack Obama. Kerry's appointment would open up a special election for his U.S. Senate seat.

Bing users may often search for Kim Kardashian, but it takes more than Web traffic to earn Entertainment Weekly's Entertainer of the Year.

It takes the official evolution of a career that once seemed bound for tabloid covers and direct-to-DVD movie roles.

It takes both starring in and directing what many consider to be the best film of 2012.

Yes, it takes the impressive achievements of the man behind Argo, Ben Affleck, who has earned this distinction from the popular publication.

A surefire Best Director Oscar nominee, Affleck was announced as the magazine's Entertainer of the Year today on Good Morning America.

Already the parents of two beautiful daughters, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are now the proud mom and dad of a beautiful baby boy as well! Congratulations!

The A-list couple, who got married back in 2005, have proven pretty skillfull at picking out pretty girl names, with Violet and Seraphina. The little boy's name?

Alas, mum's the word on the little guy's name for now. But he's here!

Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck

Jen and Ben with Violet, 6, last fall. Seraphina is 3.

"It would be so weird to have a boy," the actress told Ellen DeGeneres recently, but also said the experience would be absolutely "cool and different."

Affleck, in turn, said that the 3-against-1 female-to-male ratio in his house leaves him significantly outnumbered. Looks like he has a teammate at last!

"He knows when to swoop in with the gesture. He's sweet that way," the actress says of her husband. "Honestly, I would do anything for that man."

"I always know that it's not taken for granted."

Aww. Congrats again to the whole family!

UPDATE: "We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," Ben announced via Facebook.

Ben Affleck has proven himself as an actor and as a director.

But what about as a bearded man and as a man who is cleanly shaven?

Bennifer Baby Time!

That's the question on tap for readers today, as the star is currently filming the movie Argo, which chronicles a life-and-death covert operation to rescue six Americans during the Iran hostage crises. Affleck's role didn't require him to shave. Lucky dog.

Wish Affleck well with his impending third baby and then vote on his looks below:
