While Casey Affleck’s absence at his older brother’s wedding was for a good reason, his absence led to speculation that the brothers had a strained relationship. A few days before the wedding, TMZ captured a video in which Casey was asked if he would attend Ben’s nuptials. He refused to respond, fueling speculation regarding the bond between the Affleck siblings. The brothers have always been supportive of one another personally and professionally, with Casey starring in his brother’s directorial debut feature “Gone, Baby, Gone.” Casey was even a member of the “Good Will Hunting” cast, which arguably catapulted Ben and Matt Damon to stardom.
The younger Affleck soon put the rumors to rest the day after the wedding in a since-deleted post (via US Weekly), showing support for the couple’s union despite his wedding absence. “Good things are worth waiting for,” Casey wrote under an old photo of Lopez, Ben, and himself. “Here is to twists and turns, new beginnings, and finding new reservoirs of old love.” He particularly praised his sister-in-law, adding, “Welcome to the family. Get ready for some real dysfunction! Kidding. I am kidding. Jen, you are a gem. We love you so much!!!”
