Ben Affleck cut Mark Ruffalo’s friendship with Jennifer Garner short

Apparently Mark Ruffalo used to be bosom buddies with Jennifer Garner for a while. They met on the set of the 2004 movie 13 Going on 30 (shit movie) and immediately hit it off on a platonic level. Things were going great and they had an awesome friendship going… until Ben Affleck came on the scene.

Mark appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last week and was asked by a fan if he and Jennifer still keep in touch. Here’s what he said (via US Weekly):

“We had a great time together, and I think we would, but then Ben [Affleck] came on the scene and that was the end of that,” Ruffalo said smiling.

“I heard he doesn’t allow her to have male friends,” host Andy Cohen said, joking, “I made that up!”

Ruffalo shrugged and pled the fifth, adding that it was “sad” he hadn’t stayed close with the Alias star in the 10 years since the film was released.

So… what happened here, do we think? Did Ben Affleck tell his future wife that she couldn’t be friends with Mark? Did Jennifer get so sprung off Ben that she was no longer interested in being friends with Mark? It’s all so dramatic! (Not really, but go with it.)

  • She did cheat on her first husband so I guess it’s possible ole Ben got a little jealous. Love me some Mark Ruffalo though.

  • Like hell it was a shit movie! “Now you can get that ‘Bambi getting his mother get shot and strapped to the back of a car’ look off your face.” come on man it has its gems
