Movie star BEN AFFLECK is regretting making his business interest in hip Los Angeles bar THE CONTINENTAL public - because now he can't drink there.
Affleck sank cash into the bar after enjoying nights out there sipping Martinis, but now the place is always full of people trying to spot him.
A regular says, "It has become a very popular place - but people there now just seem to be looking for someone all night. Ben's not as regular as he used to be." (KL/LAFR/NFA)
