If one Hollywood power couple were favored to make their wedding vows last until eternity, it would have been Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. Alas, the duo confirmed the breakup of their marriage in June of last year leaving thousands of fans devastated. Since the split, rumors and gossip have flooded the tabloids. Headlines abounded over what went wrong and where to place blame. Wanting to set the record straight, Jennifer Garner finally speaks up about their breakup in a personal interview with Vanity fair.
“The love just did not work”, the actress claimed. “I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him,” Garner told the magazine.
“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?
The actress further added, “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.”
A few months ago, there were rumors about Affleck’s coquetry with one of their children’s nannies, but Garner confirmed during the interview that the nanny incident had nothing to do with their decision to divorce. They had been separated for months before Garner heard about the fling. As we would expect her to, Garner seems to be dealing with the matter maturely and doing everything that she can in the best interest of her children. She told the magazine that she’s taking good care of herself, and looking forward to the next chapter in her life.
