Ben Affleck and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner have been spotted sharing an intimate moment inside a car together.
The Hollywood stars divorced in 2018 after initially separating in 2015, but their co-parenting means they are often in each other’s vicinity. This most recent sighting, however, saw the pair looking incredibly intimate.
It comes months after people were left shocked after a photo of Ben Affleck alongside his and Jennifer Garner’s daughter Violet emerged online.
The seventeen-year-old usually stays away from the limelight, but she recently attended billionaire CEO Michael Rubin’s 4th July party with her dad and his current wife, Jennifer Lopez. While in attendance, someone took a snap of the trio, and Violet’s likeness to her mother has sent the internet into a frenzy.
The pic quickly went viral, and fans have been left in awe at how much Violet looks like her mother.
One person commented: “OMG, I thought that WAS Jennifer Garner!”
A second wrote: “It’s giving 13 going on 30”
“Ben’s genes didn’t even try,” another fan joked.
Affleck shares 3 kids with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, with Violet being the eldest. They also have Seraphina, who is fourteen years of age, and Samuel, aged eleven. The pair were married from 2005 to 2018.
The Argo star has previously spoken out about the end of his marriage to Garner.
“I’d probably still be drinking. It’s part of why I started drinking … because I was trapped,” he shared, per People.
He continued to explain exactly why he was unhappy: “I was like ‘I can’t leave ’cause of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ What I did was drink a bottle of scotch and fall asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.”
The Good Will Hunting star has been to rehab multiple times for his alcohol addiction, in 2001, 2017 and again in 2018.
“The truth was, we took our time, we made the decision … We grew apart,” he said of his first marriage.
“We had a marriage that didn’t work, this happens, with somebody that I love and respect, but to whom I shouldn’t be married any longer. Ultimately, we tried. We tried, we tried because we had kids.”
“Both of us felt like we don’t want this to be the model that our kids see of marriage,” Affleck concluded.
However, Affleck and Garner are still close, as is proven by the latest paparazzi snaps of the pair. Page Six obtained the snaps, which see Affleck sat in the driver’s seat with daughter Seraphina on the passenger side, and Garner in the back.
Garner was seen leaning over the seat to give Affleck a hug from behind, with the pair all smiles.
