Is Ben Affleck Gay?

There is no evidence that Ben Affleck is gay.  This question often
arises probably because many people confuse being gay-friendly with
being gay.

For example, he apparently will soon be appearing in a new advertising
campaign in which TV viewers are told to "tolerate homosexuals." 
Being against homophobia does not make one gay:

Your question is discussed over and over on Usenet Newsgroups:

According to one site, the LA Daily News "claimed that there is
absolutely no truth to tabloid gossip that he and Matt Damon are more
than friends. Affleck said: 'I like to think that if I were gay, I
would be out, 'Rupert Everett Style'.'"

The above quote implies that one of the following is true:
1) He is not gay.
2) He is gay and is out "Rupert Everett Style"

Since Ben Affleck does not appear to be out Rupert Everett style, the
first option must be correct.

Ultimately, the only person that can conclusively answer your question
is Ben himself.  As such, you may want to directly write or email him.
 He can be contacted at:

Ben Affleck
c/o Creative Artists Agency 
9380 Wilshire Blvd.
Beverly Hills, CA 90212

Additionally, he has an "Official Ben Affleck website":
