Ben Affleck ‘floored by Jennifer Garner’s revealing interview’
Ben Affleck was reportedly “floored” by estranged wife Jennifer Garner’s revealing interview with Vanity Fair.
While Ben, 43, was told by Jennifer that she would be doing the chat, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actor had no idea she would be quite so candid.
Jennifer admitted during the chat her former husband “broke her heart”. When the pair split, Ben was subject to allegations that he cheated on the Dallas Buyer's Club star with the family's nanny, Christine Ouzounian, 28. During the interview Jennifer also criticised him for showing '”bad judgment” concerning the alleged affair.
“Ben knew about Jen's interview for Vanity Fair, but she didn't warn him how much she was going to reveal - he was totally 'floored',” a source close to the star told Britain’s Heat magazine.
Jennifer apparently denied Ben's request to sit in on the interview, saying he had to trust her but it’s possible she felt she would not have been able to be as honest as she would have liked had he been sitting next to her.
Soon after the interview, which was published ahead of the Oscars (16), the couple was pictured at the post-awards bash looking frosty.
While Ben wasn't covered in glory, Jennifer seemingly achieved what she wanted from the interview. She was described as "winning America's hearts 14 years ago", by the publication which also complimented the actress on her humanity and values.
"She (Jennifer) wanted people to stop pitying her. It felt good to be honest about her feelings towards Ben,” the insider commented.
Meanwhile the couple has reportedly put their divorce on hold with Ben allegedly planning to woo Jennifer back. They spent Valentine’s Day weekend in Montana together and were accompanied by their children. The couple has two daughters Violet, and Seraphina, and son Samuel together.
