Are Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner Headed For Divorce?

I know it’s likely slanderous for me to so much as speculate that there might be trouble in paradise when it comes to the Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck‘s marriage. They’re Hollywood’s golden couple! They have adorable kids! How could anything go wrong?! I don’t know, but apparently it has, because some people seem to think they split up and are planning to divorce.

Via the Daily Mail:

The couple, who married in 2005 and share children Violet, nine; Seraphina, six; and Samuel, three, have already separated, according to the Enquirer, and heading for a $150million divorce.

The website also suggest that Affleck, 42, is wanting an official announcement ahead of the duo’s 10th wedding anniversary so that media attention will have died down before he starts promoting upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The couple have not been pictured together for over a month when they were spotted walking in their Brentwood, California neighbourhood.

Radar Online also ran a report suggesting Garner, 43, has reached breaking point after years of problems in the marriage.

An insider said: ‘Often, when Ben and Jen have a problem, they just agree to ride it out and be miserable together until they can get some time apart.’

They added: ‘Jennifer has close friends who think that she and Ben are a horrible fit, despite how much he loves being a father to those kids.’

Another insider told the publication: ‘Jen has actually been preparing herself emotionally for this divorce for some time.

‘She sees a therapist to learn how to cope with the divorce, and how to deal with the kids after they split. She’ll take custody of them.’

I mean, sure, considering the source, this could be a load of boloney. But just because the details might not be right doesn’t mean it can’t be true. A 10 year marriage in Hollywood is an amazing thing, but they’re still human and people do grow apart.

I dunno about this one, guys!

Jennifer Garner just can’t diet anymore

jennifer garner

I think we can all agree that Jennifer Garner is an extremely slim woman. In no way is she overweight, and in fact she may even be underweight (or at the very least, on the lower side of “normal”, according to the bullshit BMI). However, she lives in Hollywood where you can never be too rich or too thin, and even Jen has felt that pressure. Too bad, though – she can’t diet anymore, because she’s done too much of it in the past.

Here’s what she had to say to Bobbi Brown in an interview with Yahoo Beauty:

BB: Does your husband eat the way you do? Are you both on the same page in terms of health and eating?

JG: He will eat the way I do unless he’s in the middle of really, really training for something. And then, it’s such a different thing. Every calorie and every gram of protein—everything’s counted in a way that… I don’t know how he does it.

BB: What happens when you come home from an awards ceremony and you’re like, OK, I haven’t eaten in two days to get into this dress. What is your go-to splurge? Pizza?

JG: Oh, I never do that. I don’t wear crazy dresses. With food I’m probably good 80% of the time. I’ve found out that I cannot pass up pizza without having some. I just can’t! My kids have a lot of pizza. I can’t go to a kids birthday party without having a slice.

BB: So, while most people will diet themselves to get into a dress, you actually look for a dress that looks good on you.

JG: Yeah, exactly!

BB: That makes so much sense.

JG: I mean, believe me, there’s always a point in the fitting where I feel like, ‘Why I didn’t I just try to lose four pounds and then I could wear any dress?’ I just can’t though. I dieted for so long in the middle of doing Alias and being a superhero, that there’s something in me that can’t do anything that extreme.

Well, good for you. But if your biggest problem is that you could stand to lose FOUR POUNDS, uh… girl, you don’t need to “diet”. Your weight can fluctuate four pounds in a DAY based on water weight, hormones, etc. Good lord.

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.)

Ben Affleck Wants To Be Mr. Mom While Jennifer Garner Works

ben affleck jennifer garner

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are one of the best Hollywood couples, as you know, so it’s no surprise that even their approach to parenting is cute (as are their kids)! After a hectic few years of making movies and winning Oscars and whatnot – you know, your everyday activities – Ben is taking a well-deserved break while his wife’s schedule gets a bit busier and will be looking after 7-year-old Violet, 4-year-old Seraphina and 1-year-old Samuel full time. Go, Mr. Mom!

From People:

“Jennifer is going to work,” a chuckling Affleck, 40, told PEOPLE Monday night. “And she told me to go to the gym.”

“I’m preparing myself to take on some more of the burden [at home],” Affleck said at the Los Angeles premiere of To The Wonder, hosted by Fiji Water and Disaronno. “[Jennifer's] got a couple of movies coming up, so it’s going to be a little Mr. Mom action, and I’m going to get back in the ring and we’re going to see if I still have it.”

ADORABLE. I don’t even particularly like Ben Affleck or Jennifer Garner as people (I don’t dislike them, either, I just don’t really know them at all), but I just think they’re so cute together. Oh, whatever!

Pale Girls Rejoice: Jennifer Garner’s Nickname Used to Be “Casper”

jennifer garner

I’m pale as hell and I burn lobster red (even with sunscreen) when I’m out in the sun for more than an hour, so I totally feel Jennifer Garner when she admits she used to be made fun of for being so white. I mean, just last year I was walking to the subway and some teenager (ugh, youth!) called me a “white ghost bitch”, which made me laugh a LOT but also goes to show you just how pale I really am. I like to call it “Elizabethan beauty”.

Anyway, Jennifer wasn’t called “Casper” because she’s naturally see-through, but rather because she spent all her time at the movies when she was younger. Way to go, Jen – admit to former adversity while also re-asserting your passion for acting! I love it.

From People:

“When I was really young, no one thought of the sun as being a problem,” Garner says. “We would put on baby oil and lay in the sun to try to get brown.”

As it turns out, however, being a theater kid “saved” her complexion. While her friends spent afternoons tanning, “I was inside in the theater geeking out. My friends called me Casper!”

Jennifer is the new brand ambassador for Neutrogena, hence the reason she’s going on about this. I do agree that sunscreen is important and skin cancer is no joke, but it’s funny when they try to get these soundbites out of celebrities about the most mundane shit – like when Ginnifer Goodwin was rattling on about mouthwash.

Anyway, I imagine Jennifer is a bit more tan now, although maybe not if she’s been sitting on the couch and eating ice cream with Ben Affleck after his Oscar win.

Ben Affleck’s Been Eating Ice Cream On His Couch Since Winning His Oscar

After picking up a trophy for Best Picture with Argo at the Oscars last month, Ben Affleck isn’t busting his ass on his next project or anything. Instead, he’s sitting on it, eating ice cream on his couch and hanging out with his wife/BFF/biggest fan Jennifer Garner. Sounds like a pretty good life, eh?

From US Weekly:

Affleck explained to Us Weekly that he’s been reluctant to get out of sweats post-Oscars. “Luckily, I’ve been able to just enjoy my good fortune the last couple of weeks, just sit back and take it in, not do anything, eat ice cream on the couch,” the actor, director and producer, 40, said. “It’s been a nice time, hanging out with my wife, that sort of thing, and we’re enjoying it.”

I just love these two together. I don’t give a shit about them apart, and I don’t even care about their acting/directing/whatever work, but they’re just so genuinely into each other even after all these years that I can’t bring myself to say anything bad about them. Plus, who doesn’t like ice cream and couches? Find me someone, I dare you.
