After months of rumors that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are ending their marriage, the two of them announced today that they are getting a divorce a day after their 10th anniversary.
They released this statement to People:
After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.
They have 3 children Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
No word what caused the split, but I am sure the tabloids will all have their theories in next week’s edition.
We all know that Jennifer Garner has the cutest dimples on her face, and back when she was doing summer stock people got to find out if she has the cutest ones on the other cheeks too.
Yesterday on Conan O’Brien’s TBS show, she talked about early days of acting and doing summer stock theater during her college breaks. So the host asked her what she was like back then, and she told him about her time at the Barn Theater in Augusta, Mi. Mrs Ben Affleck said she went through a streaking phase back then. There was no reason for it, as she explained, “I was just in a naked frame of mind.”
Sadly, since this was before the time of camera phones, there aren’t any pictures out there of her doing this. Or are there??? Probably not because we would’ve seen them by now.
Now when it comes to her taking off all of her clothes like that, who would’ve thought? She seems so sweet and innocent, but it seems like she has a naughty side too.
Every few weeks there are rumors that Jennifer Garner is pregnant because it appears that she has a baby bump. Today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Mrs Ben Affleck confirmed the rumors, but there is a catch. She said, “I am not pregnant, but I have had three kids and there is a bump. From now on ladies I will have a bump. And it will be my baby bump.” Then she added, “I see you guys are really eager for us to pop out another one. Gosh, you’re exhausting!”
Good for her for being one of the few celebrities who is OK with the changes her body made after having children. I wish more of the female stars were as accepting about it as she is. That is why I love her so much.
MTV News‘ Josh Horowitz asked Ben Affleck if we are going to see his penis in Gone Girl and the Oscar winner said yes we will. He also warned us that it was very cold on the set that day, so that we won’t be disappointed. I guess that means that George Clooney still stands as the biggest Batman. And I am not referring to his muscles, I am just referring to one muscle.
Jimmy Kimmel went fishing, so he’s been too busy to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge until today.
The ABC late night host decided to turn the challenge on its head, by having the ice poured down on his other head. You know, the one where all his brains used to be before his wife, Molly, and cousin, Mickey, froze them off. After six bags of ice were dumped in his fishing pants along with some hose water, whatever was warm down there is now like Elsa worked her magic on them. So Frozen, he should think of renaming his little friend, Olaf.
Good thing his wife and him just had baby because, I think, after this, it will be their only one.
Finally, of course he challenged Matt Damon to do it. It will be interesting to see if he accepts his nemesis’ challenge just like he accepts being on Jimmy Kimmel Live whenever he asks.

Jon Hamm was on Late Night yesterday and Seth Meyers reminisced about their time together on Saturday Night Live. Then the Mad Man then told him that he has a really big head and when he was on SNL, he asked the hair and makeup people if he has the biggest one that they ever had on the show that’s been on for like ever. To his surprise he found out there was someone who had a bigger head than he does. That man is his The Town co-star Ben Affleck. I wonder of if Affleck’s other head is also bigger than Hamm’s??? C’mon you were thinking the same thing and you know it.
So Good Job Brain was playing Trivial Pursuit and he got a card that will soon be retired. The question asked of these 5 actors, which one never played Batman. Well the answer to the now out-of-date question is Ben Affleck. So just imagine when they came up with that response, they were like who would never ever play The Dark Knight. So imagine their surprise when they heard that Affleck is the latest man to play Bruce Wayne.
So think if you are upset about him playing the role, think how those people feel about it. Because he was definitely last on their list.
BTW I still don’t have a problem with him playing the part.
Ben Affleck was a guest on Late Night yesterday and Jimmy Fallon asked him about being cast as Batman.
The newest Caped Crusader told the NBC late night host that after he accepted the role, the studio warned him about the negative fan reaction he was in for once they announced he’d be playing the part. Warner Bros showed him some of the other hateful reactions that past actors who took on the role endured before their versions of the movie ever came out. It was so bad that the studio advised him to avoid the internet for a few days.
Well the Daredevil felt he is a big boy and he could handle what they would say about him. That is until he read the first comment, that said “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” Once he read that, he was done with the internet for a few days. Guess he didn’t pay attention to that major plot point in Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.
Even though there are a lot of naysayers out there, I sincerely think he will be a great Batman. So bring it on Ben!
