"His accent... ," she recently said of the Venezuelan actor, 43. "I kept adding a kiss to a scene because his lips are so just... he's so delicious!"
It seems the feeling is mutual! "Jen and Édgar really hit it off and had a blast making this film together," a source tells OK!, adding that people on set had a feeling that something was brewing between the two.
"They spent all their free time in each other's trailers and passed notes to each other like kids with crushes," the source continues. "They were also heard laughing and telling each other stories about their lives outside of work!"
According to the source, their flirting continued after filming wrapped. "They've been meeting for cozy dinners in at her place a few nights a week and talking on the phone constantly to stay connected," says the source, adding that the mom-of-three seems to be falling for him. "Friends say Jen's hoping things get more serious because Édgar's just the greatest guy."
A new relationship would be a welcome change for Garner. The busy mom ended her two-year relationship with businessman John Miller last summer and has been "so focused" on this new chapter of her life — including doing more work off camera in addition to acting — that she "hasn't dated anyone since," an insider previously told OK!.
And while many hoped that Garner would get back together with baby daddy Ben Affleck (they share three children Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9), it looks like the two are better off being just friends. The coparents extraordinaire “are focused on raising their kids and being each other’s biggest supporters,” dished a source.
In fact, according to an OK! insider, “Jen supports his sobriety and will do anything to help Ben stay on track." Family first!
