Jennifer Garner Looks Sleek and Stylish in Tailored Pants for Camping Premiere

Jennifer Garner is making business casual look effortlessly glamorous.

At Wednesday’s Los Angeles premiere of Camping, a new HBO comedy, at Paramount Studios, the actress, 46, paired a glossy, asymmetrical crimson shirt with tailored black pants that featured matching maroon stripes. She left her brunette hair down in waves and wore two simple bracelets.

Garner stars opposite David Tennant in the show, which Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner wrote and executive produced. Camping centers on “a meticulously planned outdoor trip” that “is derailed by uninvited guests and forces of nature, turning the weekend into a test of marriage and friendships,” according to the network.

Camping is Garner’s first starring role on television since Alias.

At the premiere, Garner told Entertainment Tonight, “My character was so mean that I had some making up to do.”

She added, “I tried my best in real life not to be like this character, but I did have a lot of love for her and I did really understand where she was coming from. I did see that at one point in time she was, if not the life of the party, the organizer of the party. And she had a lot of physical issues since then and it’s kind of hardened her heart.”

Garner’s appearance at the premiere comes days after she finalized her divorce from Ben Affleck, with whom she shares children Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6.

Camping premieres on Oct. 14 (10 p.m. ET) on HBO.

Jennifer Garner Rings in Fall with a Tractor Ride: ‘So You Think You Can Farm’

Jennifer Garner is kicking off fall with the most delightful seasonal activity.

The Peppermint star, 46, celebrated the start of autumn by driving a tractor through a green stretch of the countryside. In a video she shared via Instagram on Saturday, Garner waved at the camera as she passed by and bopped in her seat, showing just how much infectious fun she was having.

Garner wore a white t-shirt and jeans for the outing and left her long brunette hair down. The mom of three captioned the sunny video, “Happy first day of autumn!” and added “#soyouthinkyoucanfarm” alongside some fall-appropriate emojis.

In August, she spoke to Southern Living about the lessons she wants her kids with ex Ben Affleck — Samuel, 6½, Seraphina, 9½, and Violet, 12 — to learn from her mother Pat’s childhood on an Oklahoma farm.

“I want them to know that my mother was happy and free on the farm,” Garner told the magazine. “I want them to know that you don’t need things to keep you occupied.”

Garner, who grew up in West Virginia, continued, “I think that the only real way to understand a concept like that is to live it, so I guess we’d better head to the farm more often!”

Garner explained, for her, it’s a challenge to show her kids the value of time on the farm when they live such a different lifestyle back home in California.

“You feel like, how can I infuse my kids’ city lives? They couldn’t have a more different life than what these guys have here,” Garner shared. “How can I give them that feeling — the freedom and the joy and the silliness?”

Garner, the co-founder of the organic baby food line Once Upon a Farm, opened up in March at the Natural Products Expo West about gardening in L.A.

“We have chickens, but that’s very L.A. so don’t be too impressed,” she said. “We grow tons of fruits and vegetables because here in Los Angeles you can just grow anything. I can’t get over it. I just keep planting things.”

Garner’s gardening helps her recreate her own upbringing. “When we were hungry would say, ‘Go out to the garden, child, I bet those tomatoes are ready and grab yourself some sugar snap peas.’ , you know, you can’t help it. That’s what I do with my kids.”

Ben Affleck Leaves Rehab After Just 2 Weeks of Treatment

Last month, Ben Affleck checked into rehab for the third time.

The move followed an intervention from Affleck's estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, in which she implored the actor to seek treatment for the sake of the former couple's three children.

Ben Affleck: Suicide Squad Premiere Photo

While insiders have reported that Affleck was drunk and belligerent during the intervention, he eventually conceded that he was in need of treatment, and when Garner offered to drive him to the facility, he went willingly.

Which is why new reports that Affleck has left treatment and returned to his Beverly Hills home have come as such a surprise to so many who wished the Oscar winner well.

According to Radar Online, Affleck was spotted entering his mansion today looking disheveled and exhausted.

And witnesses say there's reason to believe he's already returned to his old ways.

Ben Affleck: Live By Night

Prior to checking into rehab, Affleck was spending time with Shauna Sexton, a 22-year-old Playboy model whom he was rumored to be dating.

Sexton has made no secret of her penchant for booze and partying, and some have even gone so far as to blame her for Ben's latest relapse.

Obviously, that's absurd, as Ben's a 46-year-old man capable of making his own decisions -- but still, many are taking the fact that Sexton visited Affleck shortly after his return home as sure sign that he's off the wagon.

While reps for the actor confirm that Affleck left treatment, returned home, and received a visit from Sexton, they maintain that there's no concern, as Ben remains committed to his sobriety.

Ben Affleck Smiling

Apparently, Affleck has reached an agreement with those in charge of his treatment wherein he will be permitted to return home to work out in his own gym.

Sources close to Ben say he will continue to leave the facility on a regular basis but will return promptly after completing his workout.

There are still concerns about his mental state, however, as Radar reports that Ben decided to head home for the first time following a particularly brutal day of treatment.

According to insiders, this was the week that Ben began "intense family therapy sessions" and he's found the experience almost unbearably intense.

Ben Affleck Shakes

It seems Ben found his "confession sessions" with Jen to be particularly taxing, as he was forced to open up about his affair with Christine Ouzounian, the couple's nanny, whom Ben allegedly slept with while he and Garner were still married.

"This is the latest sad chapter in Ben's rehab," says one source.

"He's finding the process really painful and this did nothing to help."

The insider says that Ben expected the session to be grueling but found it far more difficult than he had anticipated.

Ben Affleck Looks Shady

"He and Jen both wound up in tears after the first session when he opened up about his affair and relationships since his split with Jennifer," says the insider.

"It opened up a lot of old wounds."

No word yet on whether Ben has returned to treatment following today's workout session.

We wish Affleck and his family all the best as he continues down the hard road to recovery.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Will Divorce After Affleck Stops Being a Drunk

The Ben Affleck-Jennifer Garner divorce sure seems to be taking awhile. Oh, had to look it up just to remember. They split three years ago, but Garner only filed for divorce in April 2017. No wonder it seems like this has been taking a long time.

Maybe they were still holding out hope for a reconciliation. Every few months you’d read a story about one of them reconsidering.

Back in March 2018, you had a source telling US Weekly:

“He’s begged her to come back several times, but she has no interest.”

That same source also said:

“She put her heart and soul into fixing the relationship and wanted so desperately to turn things around for the children’s sake as well as theirs…She forgave him for so much, and still he couldn’t change.”

Wow, Garner is such an angel.

Unfortunately, you won’t see the return of Bennifer. They’ve both agreed to finalize their divorce once Affleck gets out of rehab.

If you didn’t read, last week he checked himself back into rehab. Right after stopping off at Jack in the Box. Haha, what a fatty, no lie. Garner drove him to Jack in the Box for some pregaming. Last two paparazzi videos I’ve seen of him are him hitting up Jack in the Box.

That plus all his drinking means he’d never fit into the Batsuit even if Warner Bros. decide they want him back (which looks unlikely).

TMZ reports that the divorce took so long because these two are so damn rich.

Ben and Jen have reached a property settlement, which was complicated and time-consuming because of the fortune that needed to be divided. We’ve learned the couple did NOT have a prenup, so all of their earnings during their 12-year marriage went into one pot.

Now Affleck’s free to bone every Playboy PlaymateInstagram model or nanny he comes across. And Garner is free to openly date Josh Duhamel and not hide him like Katie Holmes did to Jamie Foxx.

Jennifer Garner’s ‘Number One Concern Is the Kids’ as She Helps Ben Affleck Go Back to Rehab

Jennifer Garner stepped up to help take her ex Ben Affleck to a rehab facility on Wednesday, where the actor is now seeking treatment for alcohol addiction.

A source told PEOPLE this week that Garner, 46, is the most concerned about their three children — Samuel, 6, Seraphina, 9, and Violet, 12.

“Her number one concern is the kids,” the source says, noting that Garner, 46, has been hoping to finalize her divorce from Affleck soon, but “struggles” with questions like, “Is Ben healthy enough to have custody? Can she rely on him to co-parent?”

RELATED: Ben Affleck Enters Rehab for Third Time as ‘Visibly Upset’ Jennifer Garner Drives Him to Treatment

The move for Affleck, also 46, to enter a treatment facility came after Garner was photographed at his home on Wednesday. The Peppermint actress was seen leaving Affleck’s home upset and shaking. When she returned, Garner, Affleck and an unidentified woman who arrived at the actor’s home with her left in a car the actress was driving.

Garner stopped by a Jack in the Box fast-food restaurant before the trio drove to a treatment facility in Malibu.

Another source told PEOPLE that Affleck “knew he needed help and was vocal about it.”

Affleck’s return to treatment comes after he was spotted out with 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton in recent days.

As for Garner, “what she ultimately cares about is his sobriety,” the source says. “Her concern right now is not who he is dating.”

The source adds, “In the past, Ben hasn’t been doing well when he is alone.”

The day after a fast-food date with Sexton on Monday, Affleck appeared to receive an alcohol delivery to his L.A. home. In the photos, he held a Pacifico beer-branded box containing  what appeared to be Johnnie Walker Blue Label scotch whisky in a blue case and some other unidentifiable bottles.

Sexton told Playboy in an interview in May that her drink of choice is “whiskey all day.”

Affleck turned 46 on Aug. 15, and just before the big day, a close friend of his told PEOPLE that “Ben is doing well. He is in a good place mentally and has worked really hard to get there.”

“He continues to focus on himself and the health of his relationships,” the friend added. “He attends meetings, many meetings, and he also does meditation and yoga.”

“While he still has his moments — and let’s be honest, everyone struggles — he continues to work hard on himself.”

This is the third time Affleck has been in rehab. The first time was in 2001, and in March last year, Affleck announced in a Facebook post that he had completed treatment for alcohol addiction.

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” he wrote. “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”

Affleck and Garner filed to end their 10-year marriage on April 13, 2017, a year after they first announced that they were splitting up.

Jennifer Garner: PISSED Ben Affleck Is Dating a Playboy Model!

Earlier this week, the world learned that Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have broken up after just over a year of dating.

Given the fact that the couple went to great pains to keep their relationship as private as possible, perhaps it should come as no surprise that there was no official statement confirming the split.

Ben and Shookus

What is surprising, however, is the fact that Ben moved on within days of the breakup.

Yes, these days, Affleck is dating Playboy model Shauna Sexton.

Aside from drunkenly posting all-caps rage comments on an article suggesting that it's time for Tom Brady to retire, dumping a successful career woman who's at least close to his age in favor of a 22-year-old centerfold is the most Ben Affleck thing Ben Affleck has ever done.

Those who know him best probably aren't shocked by the decision -- but that doesn't mean they like it.

Ben Affleck Looks Pissed

According to Us Weekly, Jennifer Garner has been quite vocal about her distaste for Ben's new relationship.

A source close to the situation tells the tabloid that it's not a matter of jealousy -- rather it's the fact that Jen desperately wants her three children to have a relationship with their father, but she feels she can't trust Affleck when he's spending his time with hard-partying college-aged women.

“Jen realized a long time ago that she cannot fix Ben and that his problems are not hers to solve,” says the insider.

“She’s not his babysitter. She just wants to protect the kids. But she does wish Ben would keep his life more private.”

Shauna Sexton

The source goes on to claim that while Ben's reckless rebound behavior was not unexpected, Jen had hoped for a shred of maturity from her ex.

“Of course she’s not pleased he’s dating a 22-year-old Playboy model,” the insider adds.

“But she’s also not surprised. Jen has come to expect this from Ben. She’s not going to get involved. She can’t make decisions for him.”

And this isn't a case of Jen being skeptical of Shauna simply because of her age or profession.

J. Garn

You see, Affleck is still newly sober, and Shauna is, well ... not.

Her Playboy bio she reveals that she loves whiskey, and Ben was recently spotted carrying a case of the hard stuff into his home.

Sources close to the actor swear the booze was for Shauna, but members of his inner circle are still concerned.

Even if Ben is still off the sauce, taking up with a hard-drinking girlfriend half his age doesn't exactly improve his chances of staying sober.

Here's hoping Ben will slow things down a bit before he spirals out of control once again.

Ben Affleck & Lindsay Shookus: Planning a Wedding Even Though He’s Still Married?!

It's been almost a year since the world first learned that Ben Affleck and Lindsey Shookus are dating, and these days, the couple is reportedly ready to take the next step together.

Unfortunately, there are some sizable barriers blocking their path.

Ben Affleck, Lindsay Shookus

According to a new report from Entertainment Tonight Lindsey is seeking a commitment from Ben, who seems hesitant to pop the question.

But to his credit, there's a very good reason for that:

"Lindsay and Ben are very much in love,” a source tells the outlet.

“During Ben and Jennifer [Garner's] split, Lindsay truly felt villainized. Every day she spent with Ben out in the world for people to see felt like another day of public scrutiny, but her love for Ben was worth it," the insider adds. 

"They both learned to stick by each other during those painful months.”

See, therein lies the issue.

Ben and Jen

The source makes it sound like Affleck and Garner's split was an ugly chapter in their lives that's now over and done with.

But the fact is Ben and Jen still aren't divorced.

Yes, despite the fact Affleck and Garner have been separated for three years, they're still legally married.

We're sure that's primarily because of legal and financial entanglements, but still ...

Lindsay probably isn't too thrilled about the situation.

The insider adds that Ben and Lindsay are planning to spend their lives together, but have thus far avoided any public discussion of marriage:

Ben Affleck Winks

"Ben has worked incredibly hard on his sobriety and Lindsay has been his rock. He will be forever grateful for all her love and support," says the source.

"They are both constantly being asked if they are planning to tie the knot, but for now they taking it one day at a time.”

It's good that he's taking his recovery seriously, but we can't help but think Ben's leaning pretty hard on that "but, babe, my sobriety" excuse:

"Ben knows he loves Lindsay, but he wants to take things slow for the sake of his sobriety. He’s actually been told to take it slow and he's heeding that advice," the insider claims.

"Ben isn't ready to propose and has no plans to get engaged anytime soon, but Lindsay feels he is worth the wait.”

We're rooting for ya, Shook.

Jennifer Garner is Back to Kicking Ass in Debut Trailer for ‘Peppermint’ (VIDEO)

 

The last time Jennifer Garner got suited up to kick some ass on the big screen, it was in the disastrous 2005 film Elektra. Since then, she’s mostly made a career out of playing moms and love interests and mostly dull and uninteresting characters, but she’s getting back to her Alias ass-kicking roots with the starring role in Taken director Pierre Morel’s next film, Peppermint.

It’s kind of like Death Wish but instead of starring weathered koala Charles Bronson or grumpy penis head Bruce Willis, this time it’s sexy Jennifer Garner. She’s out for revenge against the gang members that gunned down her husband and baby girl, as well as the crooked justice system that let them get off scot free.

It’s the perfect sort of film for our times, as it will fail spectacularly with both segments of the population. The segment that wants to see a woman be a badass in a movie will have to swallow the pretty grey morality of this particular character, while those inclined to root for a vigilante don’t want to see anyone without a penis playing one.

In other words, I don’t expect this one to clean up at the box office despite a pretty intriguing premise. Coupled with a September 7 release date, I expect this one will fade from theaters faster than from your memory.

Jennifer Garner Fights With Ben Affleck in Public, Debuts New Boyfriend!

Rare is the Hollywood actor whose personal life is more dramatic than the roles he plays onscreen.

In the case of Ben Affleck, the gap is so wide that we wish he'd put this Batman nonsense to rest and focus on producing a livestreaming, 24-hour, Truman Show-esque documentary about his day-to-day existence.

Ben and Jen

Last week, Ben was in a motorcycle accident while rushing to meet his family at church.

(If that doesn't sound like a superhero origin story, we don't know what does.)

Now, it seems Jennifer Garner is deeply concerned about Ben's safety and has strongly encouraged her ex to put the bike on blocks.

And by "strongly encouraged," we mean she went off on him in front of the other soccer moms.

Yes, it seems the exes were watching their 5-year-old son Samuel on the field when Jen flipped on Ben seemingly out of nowhere.

"She doesn't want her kids to grow up without a dad," one insider tells Radar Online.

Affleck and Garner

"Jen believes he's being incredibly childish and selfish," the source adds.

"She believes he needs to start acting more like a dad and less like a kid."

The source adds that the battle of Jen vs. Ben was a mostly one-sided affair.

"Jen emptied out on Ben, and he seemed to be on the offensive," the onlooker claims.

"She only seemed to calm down when Samuel got close to them."

Ben Affleck Looks Pissed

It seems part of the reason Garner was so upset is the fact she simply doesn't approve of Affleck's relationship with Lindsay Shookus, the SNL producer whom he's been dating for over a year.

"Jen's fed up with Ben's behavior - especially since they agreed to divorce," one insider tells Radar.

"She doesn't like Lindsay and says she's a bad influence on him."

There's no word on why Jen doesn't approve of Lindsay, but it's not hard to guess.

After all, shortly after Affleck and Shookus were spotted drinking together, he checked into rehab for the third time in a year.

Ben Affleck Smiling

Apparently, Garner recently went so far as to issue an ultimatum:

"She told him to clean up his act or stay away from the kids," says the source.

But just because Jen doesn't approve of Ben's new girlfriend, that doesn't mean she's not ready to move on herself.

Radar recently published photos of Jen on what appears to be a date with an unidentified mystery man.

No one seems to have any information on who Jen's new love interest is, but she certainly seems to be into him!

So these days, Ben and Jen have both moved on with someone new ... but it doesn't seem like they'll be easing up on one another anytime soon.

Ben Affleck: Forced to Submit to Drug Testing in Order to See His Kids?

It's been a tough month for Ben Affleck.

Already dodging rumors that he's been drinking again following his most recent stint in rehab, Affleck now finds himself involved in the biggest scandal in recent Hollywood history.

Ben Affleck Smiling

As you've no doubt heard by now, famed film producer Harvey Weinstein has been accused of sexual assault by numerous women who claim he repeatedly abused his power in order to take advantage of them.

Affleck condemned Weinstein for his actions, but now, multiple women who have worked with the Oscar winner over the years say that Ben's statement is simply part of an effort to exonerate himself from any blame.

First, Rose McGowan claimed that Affleck is lying when he says he only recently learned of Weinstein's misconduct.

Shortly thereafter, actress Hilarie Burton accused Affleck of groping her when she was just a 20-year-old co-host on MTV's TRL.

Affleck has yet to respond to the allegations against him, but it's safe to assume he's in damage control mode.

Ben Affleck Shakes

And now, it looks as though he may have suffered another high-profile setback, this one having to do with his tumultuous split from Jennifer Garner.

Though Affleck and Garner finalized their divorce over the summer, the issue of custody of the couple's three children remains somewhat unsettled due to recent developments in Affleck's personal life.

Sources tell Radar Online that Jen is deeply concerned about Ben's drinking, and in order to ensure that her children will be safe while spending time at his house, she's reportedly asked the court to force Affleck to submit to drug and alcohol testing.

“Jen has put her foot down and says either Ben submits to drug testing — or he can forget about seeing the kids for a sleepover,” an insider revealed to the site.

“It breaks her heart to see Ben in liquor stores more than he goes to church."

Ben Affleck at Premiere

A bit of a dubious comment, as Ben's never been much of a churchgoer, as far as we know, but it's entirely believable that Jen would demand that her ex prove he's clean before she'll sign off on him taking the kids for extended periods of time.

“Now she wants him to prove he’s completely clean of drugs and that he’s given up his partying ways. He was such a big party guy before, and he’s slipped up a few times since,” says the informant.

“Jen’s not taking any chances. The kids come first, as always. She’s giving Ben no excuses — or second chances.”

There's no word on whether Affleck's involvement in the Weinstein scandal influenced Jen's decision, but we're guessing the actress is none too happy about Ben's latest controversy.

Ben Affleck Celebrates Birthday With Jennifer Garner: Is the Divorce Still On?

For over a year after Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their separation, it was difficult to tell what exactly was going on with the former couple.

One week, there would be a rumor that the actors were gearing up for a bitter divorce, and the next, we'd find out that Ben and Jen had attended couples counseling.

Ben and Jen

Back in April, Garner finally filed for divorce from Affleck, and it seemed that the legal action would clarify the couple's status and put a stop to those pesky reconciliation rumors that seemed to surface every few weeks.

Shortly thereafter, the world learned that Ben is dating Lindsay Shookus, and many took the relationship as a sign that his relationship with Garner was well and truly over for good.

But this is 2017, a time in which the internet doesn't stop obsessing over anything, ever.

So when Ben celebrated his 45th birthday with family yesterday, the celebrity gossip world went nuts over the revelation that Garner was on hand for the party and Shookus was not.

Of course, this is probably a result of the fact that Ben's kids were there, and it was a family event, but don't tell that to the folks who are breathlessly tweeting that love has returned from the dead, and Bennifer 2.0 is back on.

Affleck and Garner

Ben has spent the past several weeks traveling with Shookus, and since all three of his kids were at the party, he probably didn't want to make it weird for everyone involved by putting his ex and his new girlfriend in the same room.

But hey, why stop at one crazy-ass rumor?

Ben may have gotten fired as Batman; let's pretend his family innocently got him a Batman ice cream cake and he flipped out and threw it at a busboy!

Oh, and Ben got sober recently after a stint in rehab.

Let's make up some BS about him falling off the wagon and getting hammered in front of his kids!

(Oh, wait, that one's actually a rumor that's going around.)

Ben Affleck Stands Up

Look, we love wacky Batfleck stories as much as anyone else.

And frankly, the guy deserves to take some flak in the media, if only because of his absurd fanboy love for fellow grown-ass man Tom Brady.

But we think it's time to officially put an end to the constant rumors about Ben and Jen getting back together.

As for Ben falling off the wagon, let's wait until he goes streaking down Sunset wearing only his Batman cape and mask, swigging from a bottle of Jim Beam before we start to speculate.

Jennifer Garner Confronted Lindsay Shookus After Learning of Ben Affleck Affair, Sources Claim

Last week, we learned that Ben Affleck is dating Lindsay Shookus, a 37-year-old Saturday Night Live producer, whom he reportedly met while rehearsing an appearance on the show.

Affleck just finalized his divorce from Jennifer Garner in April, but the couple has been separated since 2015.

So surely there's no great scandal in Ben moving on and dating someone new at this point, right?

Ben Affleck: Suicide Squad Premiere Photo

Ha! This is the Batfleck we're talking about, and whether it's justified or not, there will always be countless pearl-clutching gasp-takes about everything he does.

And in this case, the situation might have involved actual clutching of pearls.

But we're getting ahead of ourselves ...

As you may have heard, it's been rumored that Ben cheated on Jennifer with Lindsay

In fact, some have gone so far as to say that Affleck and Shookus carried on an affair behind Garner's for years, and that the couple parted ways after Jen found out about it.

Jennifer Garner: 2016 Academy Awards

Conflicting stories abound, but right now, the consensus seems to be that Garner is pissed about the relationship, which lends credence to the theory that it overlapped with her marriage.

One insider tells Radar Online that Ben and Lindsay hit it off from the first time they met, and 

“There was an immediate spark,” says a source close to the situation.

“Ben and Lindsay flirted and stayed in touch through Ben’s appearances on SNL.”

Apparently, Affleck and Shookus weren't great at keeping things on the down-low, and Jen found out about the affair after realizing that Ben had made several extravagant jewelry purchases.

“Jen met face-to-face with Lindsay and demanded she return the jewelry,” the source revealed.

“Lindsay says she’d return it, but only if Ben asked for it back.”

Yes, the insider claims there was an actual face-to-face confrontation between Garner and Shookus.

Sounds like things came close to getting very ugly.

Fortunately, Garner didn't feel the need to fake her own death and frame Ben for the murder.

Sorry, but it's impossible to hear news of Ben Affleck marital troubles and not think of Gone Girl.

Jennifer Garner Got Mad About a People Magazine Story. Should She Have?

People Magazine recently ran a story about what life was like for Jennifer Garner now that she was proceeding with her divorce from Ben Affleck. There were unnamed sources who talked about her state of mind, her not wanting to date. There was a portrait of a beaming Garner on the cover.

The only problem was… Garner didn’t approve of any of this. Hell, she was quite vocal about it on her Facebook page. She said she wasn’t interviewed for the story and she didn’t pose for the cover photo. Well, when she did pose, she didn’t think that it was going to be for a story like this. From her quotes, she seemed annoyed, but I didn’t get the sense that she was in the mood to storm the People office and lay waste to everyone like Colleen Wing would in Iron Fist. I would have said Elektra, but Elodie Yung did a better job in the role – it looks like she’s going to be back in the Defenders series this summer.

I have a feeling that Garner’s going to be scrutinizing her circle of friends and staff a lot more closely when this is all said and done. Yes, she knows that her personal life is fodder for a lot of magazines. She’s amazingly wealthy. That’s one of the tradeoffs of being a celebrity. Still, this was a violation of her trust.

Some other publications thought that Garner was being tacky by speaking out about the whole thing. These magazines are part of what help keep her in the spotlight after all. It might be interpreted as a case of her biting one of the hands that feed her. I can see both sides of the story here. The overriding thought for me, though, is that I’m sick of seeing stories about whether Affleck and Garner are back together. It’s worse than soap operas. Or the entire run of Friends with Ross and Rachel.

13 Most Boring Break-Ups of All-Time

We'll be honest:

As a celebrity gossip website, we like it when couples break up and hurl insults at each other and act all immature and petty and bitter.

But it can also be refreshing to see stars as like fully-formed, fair and reasonable adults.

Just consider the amicable terms on which the following stars split from each other:

1. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Affleck and Garner split in June of 2015, but kept hanging out together. She finally filed for divorce nearly two years later, but it was so amicable, the pair aren't even using attorneys.

2. Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney cooled their relationship off when it became apparent that their rigorous schedules were becoming a bit much. Gaga also said she wanted everyone to root them on. Something tells us they will be back together at some point.

3. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Gwyneth likes to imply that she can do things better than everybody else, so it came as no surprise that she and Chris parted amicably. She wanted to prove that she's above all petty nonsense.

4. Hillary Duff and Mike Comrie

Hillary and Mike called time on their relationship in 2014 and have remained close ever since.

5. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton

Ben Affleck: Moving Back In With Jennifer Garner?!

It's been nearly two years since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner separated, and we still have no clue what the hell is really going on with these two.

They both dragged their feet on legally ending the marriage for so long that for a while, it was widely assumed they would get back together.

Last week, however, reported that Garner had decided to file for divorce from Affleck surfaced in a number of reliable media outlets.

Bennifer Pic

So why is it that Affleck now appears to be moving back in with his estranged wife?

Yes, according to Radar Online, Ben and Jen are once again cohabiting, a move that many are taking as a sign that Bennifer 2.0 is officially back on.

"This is what Jen has been praying for," a source tells the website.

"She never wanted a divorce, but felt she had no other options. Finally, Ben has sobered up enough to come home."

Insiders say Ben's "man cave" is being redesigned to serve as a play space for the couple's three children.

"The kids are thrilled Daddy is finally back," an insider claims.

"The three of them — and Jen — are only hoping that this time it's for good."

Fans of the couple are encouraged by another sign that the move is permanent:

Affleck's Cadillac, two Mercedes and a vintage Chevrolet have all returned to the family garage.

Ben Affleck, Post-Divorce

Affleck's drinking was reportedly one of the main causes of his and Garner's separation, and those closest to the couple say it had been a point of contention for several years.

Now, he's apparently been on the wagon long enough to convince Jen that he's done with the benders for good.

(Although who's to say what would've happened had Tom Brady and company failed to complete that overtime comeback!)

Skeptics will point out that it often looked as though booze was far from the couple's only issue.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner: Smoking!

Ben was caught cheating with Christine Ouzounian, who was formerly emplyed as a nanny by the couple, and Jen reportedly took issue with his compulsive gambling.

Of course, all of that impulsive behavior may have been linked to Ben's boozing.

Whatever the case, the couple will now have to contend with the issue of Ben's giant phoenix tattoo.

We wish them the best, but we're not sure any marriage can survive something like that.

Jennifer Garner Finally Files for Divorce from Ben Affleck

It’s been two years since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their split. And now Garner is finally filing for divorce.

The hell took her so long?

US Weekly‘s source says “”No matter what happens, Ben and Jen are committed to raising their family as one unit and will continue to do so as it has worked for them.”

I’ve never been divorced *knock on wood* so I don’t know why it always takes celebrities months to officially file after they split. Maybe she was holding out for that Batman money? The pair of three kids together, so they probably had something to do with it. Damn kids, always getting in the way.

Affleck has been busy since the split. Making a bunch of movies that no one liked and living in his brother’s shadow. I don’t know what Garner has been up to. Probably taking care of the kids because she’s a good person who definitely doesn’t trust a nanny.

13 Formerly Famous Couples Who Actually Get Along

There are some celebrity couples who end relationships with a whole lot of arguing that is all over the media. 

But then there are tandems who wrap up their romances in a friendly manner, with no controversy. 

It's true! Scroll down for evidence...

Jennifer Garner Is ‘Kind of Panicked’ About Daughter Violet Having a Laptop: She’s Not on Social Media ‘But I Know It’s Coming’

Jennifer Garner is trying her best to lead by example for her three kids.

Garner, 44, shares daughters Violet, 10, and Seraphina, 7, and son Samuel, 4, with Ben Affleck, and told TODAY Parents about her latest challenge: raising a preteen.

“We just had back to school night, and I said afterwards, ‘Do they need a computer?’ ” she says. “Our daughter doesn’t have any of those things, and she’s the only kid in the class who doesn’t, apparently, so I found an old laptop this weekend for her.”

She continues, “I am kind of panicked about it. She’s not on social media yet — her school has a no social media policy until 6th grade — but I know it’s coming soon.”

For Garner, parenting involves being constantly aware of how her actions affect her children.

“I try to be the best version of myself and to have faith that they’re watching me as carefully when I do something right as they do when I roll through a stop sign,” she says.

For Garner, parenting goes beyond verbal communication.

“I don’t think empathy is something you can drill in someone’s head,” Garner explains. “You have to have faith that while your kids can seem to be selfish and concerned only about the word ‘mine’ sometimes, overall, they are watching you really carefully, and if you care about other people, they will too.”

And this introspection started from the moment she welcomed Violet into the world.

“Once I had kids, I began asking myself, how do I want to spend my time?” she says. “How do I want to make what little impact I can on the world? And over and over again, I was wondering who was helping the kids like the kids I grew up with in West Virginia and rural America.”

From West Virginia to Hollywood, Garner tries her best to maintain a proper work-life balance.

“I try to make bedtime sacred, to have some alone time with each kid every night, when it is possible,” she says. “Except for the nights when it’s not possible. I work, and I have a job that means that sometimes I have to go out at night, and sometimes I need to go out at night just for me.”

Ben Affleck: Kicked Out of Family Home By Jennifer Garner?!

It's a big weekend for Ben Affleck.

Batman v Superman, the most highly-anticipated film of his career opened nationwide last night, and it could be the start of a career-defining franchise for the 43-year-old Oscar winner. 

Ben Affleck Looks Shady

Unfortunately, it looks like he'll be receiving news about the box office returns all alone in some posh Beverly Hills hotel room. Hey, maybe it'll be the same one where he stashed Christine Ouzounian!

Yes, it's been nine months since Affleck and Jennifer Garner called it quits on their marriage, but they've been living on the same massive property ever since for the sake of their kids.

Now, Radar Online is reporting that Jen has given Ben the boot - all because of his response to comments that she made to Vanity Fair.

Even though Affleck was complimentary in his remarks, Jen is reportedly pissed, as he had promised not to publicly react to her VF cover story at all.

“Jen went nuclear - she’s livid with Ben,” an insider close to the situation In Touch

"They’d both privately agreed that after everything he put her through, she would be the only one to publicly speak out.

“Ben had promised Jen he wouldn’t respond to anything, so the fact he’s gone back on his word has really hit her hard - especially when he’s broken so many promises to her in the past.”

So now Ben's been booted from his Batcave. He better make peace with Supes and hope that the Fortress of Solitude has a couch he can crash on.

2016 Academy Awards Red Carpet: A Feast For The Eyes

It's the grand finale to Awards Season 2016, and what a delight the red carpet was tonight in Hollywood.

Nominees who passed for Disney characters!  Gowns that resembled loofahs! That bear that nearly ate Leo!

Let's thumb through some of tonight's looks, shall we?  Those most pleasing to the eye, and those who - according to one tweet - look as though their owners "went HAM at Michael's."

1. Jennifer Garner: 2016 Academy Awards

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner: Not Back Together, Just BFFs!!!

For a couple that's currently in the process of getting divorced, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner spend an awful lot of time together.

Just last weekend, Ben and Jen went to church and then took their kids to a nearby farmer's market.

Prior to that, Affleck and Garner attended a couples counseling session, which is obviously a very unusual thing for an estranged husband and wife to do.

So what's the deal? Is there any truth to those rumors that Ben and Jen are getting back together?

 
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner: Faking for the Camera?

Not quite, says a source close to the couple.

Apparently, Affleck and Garner are simply taking a very Gwyneth-esque approach to ending their marriage, and while they plan to proceed with the divorce, they're also hoping to remain close with one another.

“They are working hard and enjoying being friends,” a source tells E! News “Ben wants her to be happy and vice versa.

“Just because they are getting divorced doesn’t mean they cannot be supportive friends. They will have their good and bad days like everyone else.”

It may seem strange that these two are rushing right into post-divorce friendship (especially considering the many rumors that Affleck was caught cheating on Garner), but insiders say they're doing it for the kids, and we fully support that.

Plus, who wouldn't want to be besties with Batman, ya know?

Jennifer Garner Steps Out For Her First Public Appearance Since Splitting From Ben Affleck!

At least it was for a good cause!

On Friday night, Jennifer Garner made her first public appearance since her well-covered split from Ben Affleck over the summer, and she did it by joining a whole bunch of big-time celebs!

[ Related: Ben & Jen -- The Most Together Separated Couple Ever! ]

Garner was part of the Think It Up telecast in El Lay on Friday, a show trying to raise money and awareness for improving education in California, and Garner was joined by many other celebs at the wonderful event.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Justin Bieber, Kacey Musgraves and many more all joined Garner on stage at various points throughout the night -- including the last two performing for the event -- and a good time looks like it was had by all!

Garner, pictured above with Bieber, was all smiles at the event, though of course she was not wearing her wedding ring. Considering all that she's been through the last several months, at least she was happy on Friday night!

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Begin Marriage Counseling: Are They Getting Back Together?!

Well, here's one we didn't see coming.

It's been over two months since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their divorce, and despite occasional joint outings with their kids, it seemed from the start that both parties were more than happy to go their separate ways.

Bennifer Pic

In fact, some outlets claimed that Affleck was already dating Christine Ouzounian, who had previously served as the couple's nanny.

Now, however, it looks life Mr. and Mrs. Batfleck may be having second thoughts about their split. 

According to People magazine, Ben and Jen have enrolled in a couple's therapy program and have been spotted coming and going from a medical center in LA several times in the past two weeks.

Reps for the couple say the program is part of Ben and Jen's effort to “go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting their children.”

Sounds plausible, but something tells us there's more to the story.

Reports indicate that Affleck and Garner were separated for up to ten months before they filed for divorce.

Seems to us like they've already had plenty of time to work on the terms of their split and figure out how to keep things as amicable as possible.

Yeah, we're thinking this might be an attempt at reconciliation.

Surprising, sure, but it kinda makes sense. After all, Ben's been looking miserable lately.

We figured it was just because he had to spend his first birthday as a single dude at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, instead of making it rain at a strip club. But maybe he really just misses his family.

Christine Ouzounian: Ben Affleck Seduced Me in the Shower!

It's been two months since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their divorce, but the split continues to make tabloid headlines.

Part of the problem, of course, is Christine Ouzounian. The nanny-turned-mistress is still doing everything in her power to extend her 15 minutes of fame, and remarkably, it seems to be working.

First, Ouzonian wanted to be the next Bachelorette. Then she lowered her standards a bit and started fielding million-dollar porn offers.

Now, comes the inevitable attempt to cash in that we've been predicting from day one. Sources say Christine is shopping a tell-all memoir

But while the news of Christine's foray into the literary world isn't exactly surprising, some of the revelations in her book might be:

Christine Ouzounian Tabloid Cover

According to the new issue of Star magazine, Christine intends to reveal that Ben made his intentions perfectly clear the first time they hooked up - by joining her in the shower.

The tabloid claims that Ben made little effort to hide the affair, and Christine actually wanted Jen to find out!

“Christine did what she could to speed things along, flirting openly with Ben and even leaving evidence of the relationship where Jen would be sure to find it.

"Jen suspected something was going on almost from the very beginning. She would come in to a room and find Ben and Christine leaning in to each other and whispering. But, she tried to convince herself it was all in her head.”

As for the story about Ben and Christine getting caught having sex during a family vacation in the Bahamas?

Well, apparently they weren't busted in the act, as early reports indicated. Instead, Jen found a pregnancy test that Christine had left lying around and absolutely lost it.

The test was negative, but Jen still took it as the final clue that her husband was engaging in unprotected nanny-banging.

Well, we'll give props where they're deserved: Christine might actually be diabolical enough to make it in Hollywood.

Egotastic Dollhouse Theater: Batfleck And The Nanny

The world was saddened to hear that love had finally died when Jennifer Garner and Ben Aflleck announced they were separating. Since then it has been alleged that the reason for the split was because Ben was maybe doinking the nanny Christine Ouzounian. He denies it but it does look kinda ...
