Jennifer Garner Opens Up About Divorce in Vanity Fair
Jennifer Garner is front and center for the new issue of Vanity Fair.
Inside, the actress finally addresses the rumors that her nanny led to the demise of her marriage to estranged husband Ben Affleck.
She tells the magazine,”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.”
Garner also shares that she still has to “have conversations about the meaning of ‘scandal'” with her children. The actress has also learned to avoid gossip as a whole.
“I turned on CNN one day, and there we were,” she remembers. “I just won’t do it anymore. I took a silent oath with myself last summer to really stay offline. I am totally clueless about all of it.”
Even though the pair have been all over the news, Garner has no interest in speaking ill of her soon-to-be ex.
“People have pain – they do regrettable things, they feel shame, and shame equals pain,” she continues. “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.”
