Jennifer Garner says she's not interested in dating after her split from Ben Affleck
Friends have been trying to play matchmaker for actress Jennifer Garner, and she is simply not having it. Garner says she’s not interested in dating — and we completely understand.
The Dallas Buyers Club actress candidly admitted that she and her children are still adjusting to their new life post-separation. After officially filing for divorce in February of 2017, she and Affleck are currently coparenting Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Sam, 5. Garner said she wouldn’t have chosen this life for herself or for her kids, but said, “It’s something that we are working through.”
Affleck is on the growing list of men in Hollywood accused of sexual misconduct. In early October, One Tree Hill’s Hilarie Burton accused Affleck of groping her during an episode of TRL.
However, Garner also noted that, “we can’t lump all men into [the same category],” and assume that every man is guilty of something. She added, “due process is important and has to take place,” but she’s thrilled to see “really smart people asking tough questions.”
Garner hopes that a new narrative will stem from this historical moment.
On that note, we’re completely here for Garner’s decision to stay single right now and focus on herself and her family. Ignore all that nosy matchmaking and keep doing you!
