'Yes Day' Star-Producer Jennifer Garner 'Willing To Set Aside' Love Life To 'Do More Work Behind The Camera': Insider
First things first! Jennifer Garner is setting her sights on becoming a power player in Hollywood — even if it means putting romance on the back burner.
"Jen wants to move beyond acting and do more work behind the camera," an OK! insider says of the Yes Day star, 48, who also produced the family comedy. "She realizes a lot of actresses in her generation, like Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, are much further along with their producing careers. So, she's willing to set aside her love life to really make a go at it."
The mom-of-three, who ended her two-year relationship with businessman John Miller last summer, "is so focused on this next chapter that she hasn't dated anyone since," the insider adds. "If she's going to catch up to Reese and Jen, she knows she has a ton of work to do."

Who has time to focus on love anyway, when you're a mom-of-three (Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9) and too focused on the family dynamic? As OK! previously reported, ever since ex Ben Affleck's split from live-in girlfriend Ana de Armas in January, he and Garner "have been spending more time together — not only with the children but also just the two of them."
The coparents extraordinaire “are focused on raising their kids and being each other’s biggest supporters,” an insider previously told OK!.
Maybe Affleck is the reason his ex-wife doesn't seem too keen on dating around at the moment. "Jen's confided to friends that it's been really nice getting to know Ben again," spilled the source. "The truth is, Jen missed Ben when he was with Ana and didn't realize it until he was single again."
Still, the source insisted, "All they'll tell friends is that they feel like they're a family again, but who knows what the future holds."
