After Ben Affleck’s recent sobriety setback, we were reminded once again what an absolute saint his ex-wife Jennifer Garner is. She’s like the statue of liberty for troubled men, only Ben’s a one-man huddled mass. Ben spent time with Jennifer on Halloween and was papped doing a school drop off with her. According to Us Weekly, the reason that Jen’s been able to stay strong during this difficult time is because her robot hamburger man John Miller has been beep-beep-booping by her side.
After Ben Affleck sadly had a relapse on a night out with his new maybe-piece Katie Cherry, he went off to his ex-wife Jennifer Garner’s house for support, because she’s always been there to help him pick up the pieces. Well, yesterday on Halloween, Mama Jen slapped on a happy face, some light makeup and hit the stroll with Ben as they dropped off one of their three children at school. That’s what she’s doing, that’s what she did: we can always count on Jennifer Garner, and apparently, so can Ben.
On Saturday night, Ben Affleck was seen stumbling around outside of a Halloween party in West Hollywood, which would be all well and good if he decided to dress up as Dolly Parton at the beginning of the song “9 to 5.” But it wasn’t the result of committing hard to an obscure costume choice; Ben didn’t appear to be sober. He recently confirmed that what we all saw was the result of a man working through the addiction recovery process.
Jennifer Garner has three kids; Samuel Garner, 7, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 10, and Violet Anne, 13. And few in Hollywood can work a family pap stroll as effortlessly as Jen. Throughout the course of her marriage to Ben Affleck, through the good times, and the bad (and the bad times art directed to look like good times), we’ve seen Jen and the kids eat ice cream while Ben mopes, we’ve seen Jen and the kids at a 4th of July parade while Ben mopes, and we’ve seen Jen and the kids going to church while Ben mopes. But as likely as you are to see Jen’s kids at the checkout line on the cover of the National Enquirer, you’re equally unlikely to see them on her Instagram page. In a recent interview for InStyle, Jennifer says she’s too protective of her kids’ privacy to share pictures of them on social media. Mass market media only!
Jennifer Garner is being celebrated for her decision to not get a large phoenix tattoo covering her whole back by being put on the cover of People’s Most Beautiful Issue. Of course Jennifer Garner has done more then just divorce Ben Affleck, she also works for Save the Childred, started an organic baby food company (how on brand), keeps the paparazzi industry alive, and she looks like the mom next store that everyone wants to bone.
Ben Affleck is back on the scene post rehab, so you know what that means: back to innocuous interviews with other celebrities and hosts where you talk about non-essential bullshit while promoting a project! Yay! Ben stopped by Ellen and they talked all about his sobriety and, more importantly, that back tattoo that looks like a Meat Loaf album cover barfed all over him.
