Jennifer Garner reveals she has no interest in dating following Ben Affleck split – 'I would not have chosen this life'
Jennifer Garner has revealed she has no interest in dating following her split from ex-husband Ben Affleck.
The actress admitted she hasn’t dated anyone at all since her split from the Justice League star in June 2015.
“I haven’t been on a date and I am not interested in dating,” she told news.com.au. “People want to set me up and I am just like, ‘No thank you!'”
Jennifer, 45, who has three kids with Ben – Violet, 12, Seraphina, eight and Samuel, five – also candidly admitted that it’s not a situation she ever wanted to be in.
“I would not have chosen this life for myself or for my kids,” she continued. “I would not choose to be single or be in this position. It’s something that we are working through.”
Jennifer and Ben – who has now moved on with SNL producer Lindsay Shookus – have remained close, with recent reports saying she has helped her ex with his struggles with alcohol addiction.
Back in March, the Hollywood A-Lister took the brave decision of making his struggle to deal with alcohol public.
Following a successful stint in rehab, the actor released a statement on his Facebook page , writing: “I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be.”
And the actor went on to admit he felt “lucky” to have his family and friends as well as ex Jennifer.
“I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.
“I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do.
“This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
