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.)

The waist of Amy Adams is the size of my own head. Contemplate that.
Aaaaand The Oscars are back already. How did that happen? Seems like we just saw them and watched Jennifer Lawrence win in her wedding gown.
Anyway, check out these looks and make your picks for BEST, WORST, and WTF look of the night. Mine are at the bottom. Personally, I felt everyone played it a little on the boring side.

GO FOR IT!!
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!
“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!
