There must be good reason Jennifer Garner is running around with a big smile on her face despite divorce rumors with her old man Ben, and it may have something to do with hanging out with a mystery man, the International Business Times reports.
In a candid snapshot, Garner was caught chilling out with a mystery man who was assisting her daughter on a bicycle in Malibu, California. The event transpired merely four months divorce rumors with husband Ben Affleck.
Nevertheless, while previous weeks filled the press with pictures of Ben and Jennifer getting it on for the sake of the kids and their marriage, Jennifer has consistently been photographed wearing a big smile on her face and looking relaxed.
Whether this is due to her improved relations with her estranged husband or because of the new man in her life remains unknown.
The mystery man was seen being close with Garner and the children over the Halloween weekend, giving off the impression that he is a person closely acquainted with the family and is no stranger to Garner herself. Ben meanwhile, has not been seen recently with his wife and children.
However, he was previously photographed walking his German Shepherd all by his lonesome while he was dressed up in period garb during the filming of his current project Live by Night in Georgia, The Daily Mail reports.
These developments can't be good for the Batman star and his wife who was previously reported by Hollywood Life to be pregnant with Ben's child. The news mentioned that Garner conceived the child "during a one-night stand" with Affleck, though a rep for the actress has already come out, saying that none of the pregnancy rumors are true.
Another douse of cold water on improving relations between Ben and Jennifer is the recent Celebrity Laundry report citing that the actor's buddy Matt Damon dislikes Garner and believes that she is not good for his close friend and Goodwill Hunting co-star at all.
The report mentions that though Damon is not sabotaging the frail marriage, he is not encouraging a warm reunion either. One insider reveals that Damon feels that the marriage was already on the rocks long before the Nannygate issue ensued this year.
The insider goes on to say that Damon thinks "there's too much anger" in the marriage and that Ben Affleck just wants to go out for a few beers and poker with his friends. However, Garner is giving him a hard time, more that she knows how much Matt Damon is not supportive of her marriage to the actor.
