A somber looking Ben Affleck leaves a pre Oscar party
Ben Affleck appeared to be in a pretty sour mood on Friday night as he attended a pre-Oscars bash in Beverly Hills, California, following his ex Jennifer Garner’s biting tell-all interview about their failed relationship!
Affleck looked handsome during his night out, rocking a blue three-piece suit that he paired with a white dress shirt and black shoes.
But it seemed like the Hollywood hunk had more on his mind than partying and meeting fans, seeing that his outing came shortly after the release of Garner’s tell-all Vanity Fair interview about their marriage’s breakdown!
In the interview, Garner confirmed that Affleck did indeed have a relationship with the couple’s former nanny Christine Ouzounian. But she said that the two had “been separated” before the talk of Ouzounian’s relationship with Affleck reached her. “Let me just tell you something. We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation," Garner said. "Bad judgment? Yes. It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives. I have had to have conversations about the meaning of ‘scandal.'"
Affleck and Garner parted ways last summer after 10 years of marriage. She said that she is heartbroken that they were unable to make their marriage last. But she said that her main focus remains the couple’s three children — Violet, Seraphina and Samuel!
“It’s not Ben’s job to make me happy,” she said. “The main thing is these kids — and we’re completely in line with what we hope for them. Sure, I lost the dream of dancing with my husband at my daughter’s wedding. But you should see their faces when he walks through the door. And if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly, then you’re going to be friends with that person."
However, she admitted that she still has a special place in her heart for Affleck. “I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him,” Garner said. “And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can’t have these three babies and so much of what we had. He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.” What do you think about Ben and Jennifer’s breakup?
