Jennifer Garner says she is "very far" from wanting to remarry six years after separating from Ben Affleck: "I don't need to complicate my life." Jennifer's divorce from Affleck ended in 2018, nearly three years after the couple separated and more than a decade after beginning their marriage. They got married on the beach in 2005, after he broke up with Jennifer Lopez. Since then, the actress has starred in many covers, for this divorce and for the incessant rumors of reconciliation that only ceased when Affleck began a relationship with Ana de Armas , now also ended . But the truth is that the actress also resumed her love life with technology executive John Miller , with whom she broke up a few months ago. Now Garner is promoting for his new job, making covers and giving interviews after months of silence. She is determined to further her film career, her business and focus on her philanthropic endeavors. Re-pairing is not part of the plans of the one known as the "girlfriend of America."
Her image of a good wife, good friend and exemplary mother has become the argument of her new project, as if her personal and professional life were could be separated. In El día del Sí, which can already be seen on Netflix, there are situations that come from her circle of mother friends. “If a mom friend says she tried something and it worked for her, I try it,” she says. "All the time. And I really do. That's what a network of moms does to each other, right? We raise children in the community, not in a vacuum. ”
Garner, 48, lived during the pandemic at her home in Los Angeles with her three children, Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Sam, from 9, born from her marriage to Ben Affleck. And from there come many of the situations that are reflected in his new job. “We created a beach hut and a delicatessen in New York. We did a restaurant with a skating rink where the children were in the car; I bought those trays that were hooked to the windows and they made hamburgers ”. Time at home also taught her a little about herself. "I learned that I am quite strong," he adds in the interview that People takes to its cover.
The actress is a firm defender of the privacy of her children and this has led her to the US Congress demanding measures. “It's so hard being a kid now… I protect my children's privacy as much as I can and have never posted photos of them on Instagram. I used to refuse to say their names during interviews, but everyone knows their names! I just said 'my major', which I keep doing out of habit. I am sure that sometimes my children would love to see themselves reflected in my social networks in a fun way and enjoy the attention they would get. But I have fought a lot against it. There is no implicit judgment of the people who put their children there ”, he has assured on more than one occasion. “I don't think most kids were bullied like mine when they were little. We were completely bullied 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for 10 years in a row, and that changes you. I even stopped going to the market because I was constantly photographed there. I realized that I was ruining the market for everyone; I was very selfish. ”
Garner has also become an expert at multitasking. In addition to pursuing her acting career, she works for the NGO Save the Children and runs her organic cold-pressed food company, Once Upon a Farm. The actress insists her children don't even notice her life in Hollywood: "I do so many different things … Sometimes I feel like I'm working inside a blender." Houston-born
rose to fame playing CIA agent Sydney Bristow in the unforgettable action series Alias (2001 to 2006). The role well earned the actress a Golden Globe which, later, would open the doors for her to play the main character of The Dream of My Life (2004), the romantic comedy that earned her the affectionate nickname of the "girlfriend of America ”. Since then, Garner has not hesitated to play every club in the industry, from Juno (2007) to Dallas Buyers Club (2013), although his personal life has at times overshadowed his career.
Nearing 50, she says that she is no longer a "sexy girl" and that she is not offered as many roles as when she was 20 years old. "I do not receive the offers that I received during the first cover of InStyle in 2004," he revealed in an article written for this publication on the occasion of its 25th anniversary. “But I know what they offer me is because someone really wants to see me play a role,” she added.
“I feel a lot less stressed about the industry and my place in it now than before. When you are one of the hottest girls of the moment, you make decisions that define you. I first defined myself by choosing to pause, and then I very quickly defined myself by pregnancies and babies. Now my choices are defined by different things. I do not receive the offers that I received during the first cover, but I know that what is presented to me is because someone really wants to see me play a role, "he says, recalling that cover.
" I have always looked for other interests outside of acting as well. In 2008 I started working for Save the Children to help children who grow up poor in rural America. I thought I would go to school-age programs, but Mark Shriver, who has been my boss there for 11 years, said, 'If you want to help children who grow up poor, you have to help them from birth. I got involved in early childhood education and learned a lot about brain development. I wish I could do it all over again with my children and fix what I sure screwed up. ”
She has a good relationship with her ex-husband. She has been one of his great supports in his numerous attempts to quit his addictions. He has publicly acknowledged his role. “The biggest regret of my life is my divorce from Jennifer Garner. When I started drinking more and more, my marriage collapsed, that was in 201, 2016. My alcoholism was what created the problems, "Afflkeck confessed.
