Hollywood exes Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were recently seen out together.
Their outing sparked debates among the public, who made claims about the status of their relationship.
After the former couple divorced, Affleck stated that the divorce was “the biggest regret” of his life, and Garner admitted, “he’s the love of my life.”
Jennifer Garner, 51, and Ben Affleck, 51, were one of Hollywood’s premiere “It” couples when they were still married. During their relationship, the former partners welcomed three children: Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel Affleck.
Even though the two went their separate ways, they remain supportive of each other to this day. A year after their divorce was finalized, Jennifer opened up about her feelings and perspective following such a huge shift in her life.
She explained that she had fallen in love with the man behind the public image of the famous star, and saw past all the glitz and glam that came with his title. In addition to explaining her side of things concerning the divorce and what she had been doing to cope since then, the “Alias” actress confessed:
“…I would go back and remake that decision…He’s the love of my life…He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous…”
Similarly, in 2020, Ben shared some details about his perspective on their divorce. In addition to being remorseful and citing how his excessive drinking created issues within their marriage, Ben candidly addressed his faults and feelings of self-loathing and low self-esteem. Of his divorce, Ben admitted:
“The biggest regret of my life is this divorce…”
Despite not being together anymore, Ben and Jennifer remain great friends who are focused on and committed to being loving and devoted co-parents to Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. As friends, they also stay in the loop with what’s happening with each other, like when Ben attended a premiere for a new film a year after their divorce and gave an update on his ex-wife.
While filling the reporter in on Jennifer’s latest outreach work, he also mentioned that he was impressed by everything she did. He also praised her parenting skills and spoke about them doing their best to co-parent their children.
In another past interview, while discussing fatherhood and retelling an adorable family Halloween story, Ben mentioned Jennifer again. He commended her for being a doting and loving mom and called himself lucky to have a fantastic co-parent like her.
Like her ex-husband, Jennifer also boasts about what an incredible dad Ben is to their kids. A few years ago, she posted a picture of Ben and wished him a happy Father’s Day:
“Our kids are lucky to have a dad who looks at them the way you look at them and loves them the way you love them, @benaffleck…”

On Tuesday morning, Jennifer and Ben were spotted riding in a car together and conversing in the street. Jennifer was dressed in all-black with black sunglasses, and Ben wore a grey sweater with some blue jeans.
Once people saw the photos of the ex-couple, many jumped to conclusions about what this meant for their relationship status. Some believe the couple has reunited:
“I think they are together. Ben and Jlo are separated!”
In addition to some believing that the ex-couple has rekindled their romance, others were just happy to see the love still there between them. One person gushed:
“I love that they still have love for each other. As it should be.”
