Jennifer Garner has spoken up regarding her split from Ben Affleck in a Vanity Fair cover article.
Below is what she said,
“Let me just tell you something,”
“We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation.”
The stars announced plans to divorce in June 2015, but just a month later, the actor was linked to his children’s 28-year-old nanny, Christine Ouzounian, with photos surfacing of Affleck, Ouzounion and Tom Brady aboard a private jet.
Garner however is rather okay with that,
“It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives,” she says, referring to her hiring of Ouzounian as an example of “bad judgment.”
“People have pain – they do regrettable things, they feel shame, and shame equals pain”
“No one needs to hate him for me. I don’t hate him. Certainly we don’t have to beat the guy up. Don’t worry – my eyes were wide open during the marriage. I’m taking good care of myself.”
Garner and Affleck have remained somewhat close since their split.
