Jennifer Garner Reportedly Filing for Divorce From Ben Affleck
Nearly two years after announcing a split, Jennifer Garner is officially filing from divorce from Ben Affleck, according to Us Weekly.
Garner and Affleck, who met on the set of 2001's Pearl Harbor before pursuing a romance around 2003's Daredevil, announced in June 2015 they were headed in separate directions. They have three children: Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 4.
Garner insisted in a February 2016 issue of Vanity Fair that a rumored affair between Affleck and the family's nanny, Christine Ouzounian, was by no means the straw that broke the camel's back. They had been going through issues for months, she noted. Still, she had no regrets about falling in love.
“I didn’t marry a movie star; I married him, and II would go back and remake that decision," she said. "I ran down the beach to him, and I would again...He’s the love of my life. What am I going to say about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous."
Affleck expressed similar affection a month later during an interview with The New York Times, during which he noted "Jen’s great. She’s a great person. We’re on great terms. I just saw her this morning, so that’s the reality that I live in."
