Ben Affleck reportedly wanted to win back his ex-wife Jennifer Garner months before dating Anna de Armas, one tabloid claimed.
Ben Affleck has been very open about his romance with Ana de Armas. However, one outlet claimed months ago that he was still hoping to get back with Jennifer Aniston and even wanted to win her back.
Ben Affleck allegedly wanted Jennifer Garner back
Woman’s Day claimed a few months back that the Batman star was telling friends he wanted to reconcile with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
The outlet used quotes from Affleck’s interview with the New York Times to support its claims that the actor wanted Garner back in his life.
“Ben hit rock bottom when their marriage hit troubled waters, and he turned to drinking, which was the death knell,” a source told the outlet.
“But he’s put the work in, and Jen has been supportive and seen how far he’s come. Ben is hopeful she will be able to find it within herself to give it another shot.”
The report then quoted Affleck admitting that his failed marriage with Garner was the “biggest regret of my life.”
Garner reportedly considering taking Affleck back
A second source added that Jennifer Garner is open to the possibility of getting back with Ben Affleck.
“I think Jen would consider taking him back. She never stopped loving him — though I’m sure he would need to commit to therapy for his compulsions for the rest of their lives together,” the insider said.
Affleck wanting Garner back claims debunked
Gossip Cop debunked the claims that Ben Affleck wanted to reconcile with the Miracles from Heaven star.
According to the outlet, when the report first went out, they didn’t have enough evidence to refute it. However, it has been months, and apparently, the report is not true for several reasons.
First, Affleck has already moved on from Jennifer Garner. He is happy with his current girlfriend, Ana de Armas. The couple is inseparable.
A week ago, Affleck took de Armas for a motorcycle ride in his black Harley Davidson in Pacific Palisades. The two wore matching black leather jackets during their ride.
Second, Affleck has reportedly introduced de Armas to his mom and kids during a “low-key” vacation in Georgia. According to an insider, everyone got along so well.
“Ana seems to love being around his kids. Everyone has been getting along great. Ana is making an effort to get to know his kid,” the source said.
Last, Garner has also moved on from her husband. She has been dating John Miller for over a year already.
