According to the source, the Academy Award winner's dedication to working out is not related to any upcoming projects.

"Ben shows up to the gym in L.A.'s Brentwood area at all hours of the day and night, in a hoodie and sunglasses, and works himself to the point of exhaustion," the source continued. He's looking like a linebacker these days and it's not for a particular role either."

Readers know Affleck has been open about his battle with alcoholism as well as his recovery.

As Radar reported, during an interview with Today show host Hoda Kotb, he talked about his experience.

"It doesn't really bother me to talk about alcoholism and being an alcoholic, it's part of my life, it's something that I deal with," said the star.

"It doesn't have to sort of subsume my whole identity but it is something that you have to work out and I feel like I had a problem and really want to address it, and I take some pride in that," he said.

Affleck's addiction to alcohol was the catalyst to his breakup with ex-girlfriend Lindsay Shookus.

While his friends are relieved he's found a healthy substitute, his obsession with the gym worries them.

Added the source: "It keeps his mind off booze but his friends are concerned he's pushing himself too far."
