That’s great, because I think the rest of us were ready to move on from this drawn-out divorce drama about eight to nine months ago. But first! One more magazine cover about how she’s ready to move on. Jennifer Garner is the star of this week’s issue of People. She may look like she’s trying to sell wrinkle cream or wondering what’s in your wallet, but we’ll never find out what she’s really thinking. She doesn’t technically say anything to People. “Insiders” do the talking about her post-marriage life.
One insider, who I’m sure isn’t Jennifer dictating to her publicist, says that she’s “doing okay” after filing for divorce from Ben Affleck. The divorce has “really been the most difficult decision for her,” and that “it’s time to focus on the future.” But don’t expect to see Jen dating any time soon. Much like Ben, the source claims she’s not ready for that.
“She will eventually, but it will be a while before she does. She’s certainly not jumping up and down and screaming, ‘I’m single!’ and planning dates. She still says Ben was the love of her life.”
Even though it sounds like she misses the days she was married to Ben, the source says she’s absolutely ready to start living as a Single Jen.
“She seems happy to be single and able to move forward. She has a very positive attitude about the future.”
And of course another source reminded us all that Jennifer and Ben – who lives down the street – are not acting like some divorced couples (ie. being raging assholes who get off on petty spite moves) for the sake of their three children.
“They want to be sure the kids are comfortable,” says a source close to both. “It’s all in step with what they’ve always said was the most important thing: their children.”
There you go. Jennifer Garner is ready to move forward, but not in a dating way, and she’s happy to be single, but also nostalgic for the “love of her life.” Does this mean we’re really done with the seemingly endless coverage of their split? Yeah, probably not. I can only imagine the headlines that we’ll get if Jennifer Garner is caught by her favorite photographers hopping on one foot while trying to knock a pebble from her shoe. “Jen seen jumping up and down. Is she ready to plan dates? A source says: maybe!”
