Jennifer Garner on Dating Post-Ben Affleck Split: ‘No Thank You!’
Sorry, Jennifer Garner isn’t accepting any suitors at the moment.
In a recent talk with news.com.au, the Mother’s Day actress laments she “would not have chosen this life” for her children, referring to a life of co-parenting with actor Ben Affleck, Garner’s husband of 10 years, from whom she separated in June 2015 and officially filed for divorce this April.
With three little ones to raise with her estranged spouse, the star is finding she isn’t that much interested in the dating game, either. “I haven’t been on a date and I am not interested in dating,” Garner told the publication. “People want to set me up and I am just like, ‘No thank you!’”
These days, the 45-year-old says she’s investing more time in caring for her children — Violet, 12, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5 — and more importantly, in raising important discussions with her two daughters about the perceptions of men.
“We can’t lump all men into [the same category],” she said. “We can’t just assume that every man has done something awful or that every man is guilty; due process is important and has to take place.”
Despite the recent adjustment to her family’s dynamic, the Tribes of Palos Verdes star says “it’s something that we are working through.”
