Ben Affleck is breaking his silence on his split from Jennifer Garner as well as her tell-all interview for the cover of Vanity Fair’s March issue.
According to the New York Times, Ben didn’t want to talk about the end of his 10-year marriage “for the sake of his three children.” He added, he didn’t want to talk about it, ”Because it ends up being in the record somewhere, in the great miasma of junk on the Internet.”
However, it appears as though the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice star is talking. He opened up to the paper about the current state of things with his ex, saying, “Jen’s great. She’s a great person. We’re on great terms. I just saw her this morning, so that’s the reality that I live in.”
We always thought Jen was great — she wasn’t the problem!
Ben also said that the mother of his three children did let him know about the piece in VF. The actor said, “She felt like she wanted to discuss it and get it out there and get it over with. So she could say, ‘Look, I already talked about it — I don’t want to do it again.’”
In her interview, Jen said to the mag, “I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him. 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?”
She also took time to praise her former flame, “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.”
We’re still said about the end of Ben and Jen …
