Jennifer Garner, the Hollywood actress, has finally opened up about her divorce from actor Ben Affleck and the scandal involving their former nanny. In a recent interview, Garner shared some revealing quotes about these tumultuous events in her personal life.
The couple, known for their high-profile marriage, shocked the public when they announced their divorce in 2015 after 10 years together. Garner stayed mostly silent on the matter, but now she has decided to speak out. She explained that there was a specific reason why she chose to address this topic now, stating, "My kids are getting older. It’s important for me to be sure that everybody understands that they’re my priority."
Regarding the infamous nanny scandal, Garner confessed that the situation was not what it seemed. Rumors had circulated that Affleck had been involved with the nanny, which reportedly led to their separation. However, Garner dismissed these claims, emphasizing, "We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny." She also revealed that she had confronted the nanny about the rumors and "found out everything that I needed to know" before firing her.
Garner also discussed navigating the difficulties of co-parenting after the divorce. Despite the challenges, she stressed the importance of putting the children's well-being first. "What I think the most important thing is, is to just take our kids' lead on that kind of stuff," she said. Garner acknowledged that they were making progress as a family and that both parents were actively involved in their children's lives.
The actress further expressed her feelings about the divorce, highlighting the pain she experienced during this period. "The first time I heard 'my husband'...It was a real... A knife through the heart," she shared. However, she stated that she and Affleck were working on rebuilding their friendship. "We’re doing really well," she disclosed. "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," she added.
Garner's decision to address these issues undoubtedly provided some clarity on the highly publicized events surrounding her divorce. By choosing to break her silence, she aimed to prioritize her children's well-being and set the record straight about the nanny scandal. Despite the difficulties, Garner remains determined to ensure a stable and positive co-parenting relationship with Affleck while moving forward with her own life.
