The actress sets the record straight regarding her split from Ben Affleck.
Jennifer Garner wants the world to know that the latest front page article regarding the end of her marriage with Ben Affleck has nothing to do with her. She's happy, and doesn't need her family receiving false information about what is and isn't happening in her life right now.
Jennifer Garner spotted on her way to church
After discovering a front page story on People magazine entitled 'Jennifer Garner: Life After Heartbreak', she insists that she did NOT A) pose for the photos in the magazine or B) authorise any of the comments made within the story regarding her separation fron Ben Affleck.
Ben and Jen are giving it another go, with People reporting that the A-list couple have called off their divorce.
The couple, who have been married for nearly 12 years and have three children together (Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5), split back in June 2015, just a day after their tenth wedding anniversary, after it was widely reported that Affleck had had a relationship with the children’s nanny.
However, they have always been adamant that living arrangements would be focussed around the needs of their kids – with Affleck for a while said to have been living on the same property as Garner even after the separation.
The pair announced their separation in October 2015
When Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their separation after a decade of marriage, many fans were left bereft by the break-up of one of Hollywood’s seemingly strongest unions. Then when the couple remained friends, there were the inevitable hopes for reconciliation. However, a new report has revealed the divorce is back on and "not one thing" has changed.
The couple are still planning to divorce, two years after announcing their separation
Despite announcing their divorce in 2015, neither has filed papers on the action; however, 44-year-old Garner is now reportedly filing for divorce from her Batman star husband, Affleck.
The pair will go trick-or-treating with the kids this month.
There's certainly no bad blood between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner since they decided to call time on their 10 year long marriage last year. The actor gushed about his ex's parenting skills on the red carpet during the premiere for his latest film 'The Accountant' earlier this week in Los Angeles.
Ben Affleck says Jennifer Garner is a great mom
On Monday (October 10th 2016), Affleck told Extra that Garner was 'a great mom' as he discussed his Halloween plans for the kids later this month. The pair have been separated for 15 months, but they continue to live and parent their children together, occasionally going on trips out and having dinner as a family.

In the new comedy Nine Lives, Kevin Spacey plays a workaholic company CEO who suddenly finds himself trapped in the body of his family's new pet, a Siberian forest cat called Mr Fuzzypants.
While Spacey provides the voice - and the attitude - his fellow cast members Jennifer Garner and Christopher Walken are required to act opposite a furry costar. Garner loved diving into a premise this ridiculous. "This movie is incredibly watchable, funny and warm," she enthuses. "Kevin plays a jerk who doesn't pay attention to his family or his daughter. He's a little bit of an egomaniac! And then his soul pops into this cat. Kevin's voiceover is hilarious. He had something funny to say about every single moment of every single day."
So how did it feel to perform opposite a cat? "It was very funny," she laughs. "You're working so much with the animal handlers, which I had done but never to this extent. And everything is done to keep the cats focused, in a good mood, happy, looking camera-ready. They are definitely the star, the diva! And they are the centre of the universe when they're on set. I'd be getting a touch up on my make-up, and they'd say, 'Jennifer, Fuzzypants is ready!' And we'd all hurry because Fuzzypants was in a better mood."

The Hollywood power couple seem rather old fashioned in this digital age.
Just because Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck may seem old fashioned doesn't mean their marriage isn't exciting! Although we live in a digital age, the 42 year-old actress recently revealed that herself and husband Ben Affleck have a secret stash of "sexy Polaroids," instead of racy photos.

Can Sonny save the Browns in 'Draft Day'?
Taking one of the most exciting days in the football calendar and translating it to a movie screen will either be the dumbest or most ingenious idea Ivan Reitman’s ever had, which is precisely the kind judgement passed by Kevin Costner's Sonny Weaver in Draft Day.
Kevin Costner in Draft Day as Sonny Weaver
Sonny is the Cleveland Brown’s general manager, and is charged with making the perfect draft. With pressure from Harvey Molina, the no-nonsense owner played by Frank Langella, and a hoard of dedicated fans, Weaver certainly has his work cut out. But he’s not about to go down without a fight.

With pressure from his associates and from Browns fans, he wants to make a spectacular impact on the football world on draft day but, with his ideas being very different from everyone else's, he's in for a big struggle to bring everyone round to his way of thinking and after making what seems like a professionally suicidal trade, even his mother starts to lose faith in him. Excitement builds as draft day nears, with everyone baffled by what could possibly be in store for the Cleveland Browns; but will Sonny pull through with the number one pick of the year?

Often criticized for his wooden acting and schmaltzy roles, McConaughey has given the performance of his career as Ron Woodroof
Matthew Mcconaughey has been the butt of many a joke over the course of his career, with his acting ability often brought into question by critics and jokers alike thanks to his largely uninspired choice of roles. His latest film, however, is a major departure from his usual rom-com venture and has even had people crying out for him to be awarded an Oscar, or at least get a nomination for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.
McConaughey is exceptional in the film
McConaughey stars as Ron Woodroof in the true story of the former Dallas Cowboys star who is stricken with the still-largely unknown and misunderstood HIV virus in 1986. Abandoned by his friends and acquaintances and given just 30 days to live by his largely unhelpful team of doctors, Woodroof is forced to take matters into his own hands and ships in various 'cures' and treatments from across the globe. Soon he begins to build up a surplus of supplies and begins distributing them among the largely ignored HIV-suffering population, meeting like-minded people on his trip, including Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto, both of whom have also been widely praised for their performances.
'Dallas Buyers Club' was released in the US last week and has caused a stir as critics are hailing it as "Oscar worthy" and are highly complementary of its cast, especially Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto.
Critics have been stunned by Matthew Mcconaughey's performance in Dallas Buyers Club, which has been the central focus of reviews about the upcoming film.
Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club.
Matthew McConaughey stars in Dallas Buyers Club as HIV positive Texas Cowboy, Ron Woodroof. The film is based on the true story of Woodroof and the early days of the AIDS epidemic. When Woodroof was diagnosed with HIV he was given 30 days to live and, receiving little help from the government or his acquaintances, attempts to find treatments from across the globe. Along the way he encounters other HIV positive people and discovers a way to ensure these people could buy treatment.

Celebrities such as Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner pushed for the new bill, which will impose strict regulations on photographing celebrities and their children
It was a good day for celebrity parents on Tuesday, 24 September, after California Senator Kevin de Leon passed the SB606 Bill into legislation. The new law will place tighter sanctions against paparazzi in the state of California, prohibiting them from taking photographs of celebrities and their children, without prior consent to do so. The law will enforce tougher repercussions on any photographers who are found breaking these new restrictions.
Sen. Kevin de Leon is being praised by celebrities for enforcing the tougher sanctions against the press
A number of well-known stars had pushed for the bill to be entered into state law, and Sen. de Leon has been praised for enforcing the tougher legislative restrictions on photographers. The new law will boost penalties for actions that include taking photos and video of a child without parental consent and will also impose tougher sanctions against anyone who is considered to behaving in a harassing manner whilst photographing stars. The new law has not been passed solely for the protection of celebrities either, as de Leon said that he hoped the new law would help protect the children of law enforcement officials and other children who may be susceptible to harassment due to the profession of their parents.
Matthew McConaughy could be in line for a Best Actor nod.
The 2014 Oscars will be dominated by films based on a true stories, and a worthy addition to that lengthy list is Dallas Buyers Club, the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, a Texas electrician who went to war with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies after being diagnosed as HIV-positive in 1986.
Matthew Mcconaughey as Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club
Playing Woodroof is Matthew McConaughey, and the chain-smoking, whiskey-downing cocaine-sniffing rodeo cowboy is masterfully portrayed in Dallas Buyers, or so says the reviews. Now we’re looking at another Oscar contender.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live host and his new wife Molly - the head writer on his show - showed their sense of humour, welcoming their prankster guest with laughter as both clearly enjoyed the stunt.

Ben Affleck has certainly scored some awards over the past year.
Ben Affleck was awarded with the Spike’s Tv ‘Guy of the Year Award’ on Saturday (aired last night). The ceremony took place in Culver City, California. Affleck was presented his antler shaped (nicknamed ‘mantler’) award by fellow Oscar winning actor and director, Clint Eastwood. This is one of many awards; Affleck has received this year including an Oscar for his film Argo.
The Awards were first held in 2007 and previous winners have included Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Mickey Rourke, Maek Wahlberg and Matt Damon. As you’d expect, the awards are hardly female friendly (there is an award named the ‘holy grail of hot’) yet many turned out for the event including Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Alba.
The awards are hardly on par with the Oscars or a Golden Globes – there was a category in 2012 for ‘Hottest Zo(o)e(y)’. The nominations for this particular award were somewhat limited. However, the award’s lack of prestige did not prevent Affleck celebrating backstage with Snoop Dogg, Vince Vaughn and Jimmy Kimmel.

The actor/director finally gets his hand on that scroll of paper
He may have dropped out of two colleges in his day, but now he can tick Dr. when he’s filling his forms. Ben Affleck has been awarded an honorary degree from Brown University.
His degree, for fine arts, was awarded in a ceremony on Sunday, as Affleck donned the Ivy League robes and proudly accepted the award. His most recent success came with Argo – a thriller surrounding the extraction of American nationals from Iran that won him Best Director at the Globes and Best Picture at the Oscars. This represented the rebirth a career that was stalling, and confirmed his abilities as an auteur as well as an actor. He also recently become a member of the five-time club on Saturday Night Live, which is, arguably, a much larger honor than the one Brown bestowed upon him. Joined by his wife on stage, he decided to try and desipher his Oscars acceptance speech, which was a frenzied mess, at best. “Tell the people what I meant when I said marriage is work,” he said to his wife, Jennifer Garner. “Well it is a way we talk privately about how committed we are to our marriage,” she replied. “I'm not sure why you had to share it live to a billion people.”
Affleck might be disappointed to know that Brown actually conferred more than 2,400 degrees Sunday. MIT Professor Junot Diaz, retired Stanford University bacteriologist Stanley Falkow and Tougaloo College President Beverly Wade Hogan were amongst the other recipients.

The Bourne Trilogy actor and his wife dashed off to the tropical paradise of St. Lucia for a lavish ceremony
While some of us are still struggling to get their bearings after winter, Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso decided to jet off to the tropical island of St. Lucia to renew their vows, PEOPLE confirms.
With a $600 000 price tag and some extremely tight security around the island price tag, the ceremony is hardly quaint, but it’s still an intimate affair. The couple are set to exchange vows in front of their four daughters and some close friends, including Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, as well as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas. The Damon family have been together since 2005, when they married in a modest civil ceremony in New York city. They met in 2003, while Damon was shooting Stuck on You and Lucia was bartending.
While reports that the resort is being closed down for the ceremony have been discredited by E!News, the St. Lucia authorities are still taking serious security measures for the event.

Holly Madison, a former Playboy model and television personality is expecting her first child, and has revealed she no-longer talks to some of her old co-stars.
Former Playboy model and television personality, Holly Madison, is expecting a baby girl in March, and seems unlikely to be asking former 'Girls Next Door' co-star Kendra Wilkinson for any help with the child, as they apparently don't speak anymore. Madison is planning to marry her current boyfriend Pasquale Rotella after the birth of their baby.
Wilkinson herself has a 3-year-old son, yet the 33-year-old Madison has revealed that she still talks to Bridget Marquardt, but not Wilkinson or Hugh Hefner. Madison explained that: ''Bridget and I are still friends, but I don't talk to anyone else. I moved on from the whole Playboy thing five years ago and really never looked back. I'm not one of those girls who goes back to all the parties and things.''

Paris-born actress Clemence Poesy is gaining strong reviews for her Broadway debut in Jamie Lloyd's Cyrano de Bergerac, at the Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre. The production also stars Patrick Page, Bill Buell and Tony Award winner Douglas Hodge.
Hodge, who won the 'Best Actor' Tony for his turn in La Cage aux Folles, plays Cyrano, a nobleman with a love for poetry but a penchant for duelling. Audiences at the previews have been stunned by Cyrano's entrance, with Hodge hidden in darkness for several minutes before stepping into the light to reveal his famous nose - big, bulbous and "almost cancerous" looking, said Playbill.com. Poesy, best known as Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter movies and Eva in Gossip Girl, plays Roxane, Cyrano's beautiful and intelligent cousin who has a soft spot for romance and wit. Poesy's performance appears to emulate that of Jennifer Garner's, who played Roxane in the 2007 production, which starred Kevin Kline in the title role. The French comedienne Anne Brochet played the role in the 1990 big screen adaptation, for which Gérard Depardieu won the Oscar for Best Actor.
Cyrano de Bergerac has a limited engagement on Broadway through till November 25, 2012.

Ironically, this incident, where ship's cook Dorie Miller took charge and shot back during America's worst hour on December 7, 1941, is just about the only true event to be found in the entire, oppressive three-hour film. (And our producers are quick to remind us of just how ripped-from-history this little vignette is. Never mind that Gooding has a pitiful excuse for a role with maybe five minutes of screen time.)
Continue reading: Pearl Harbor Review
Elektra, a needless spin-off from Mark Steven Johnson's already flawed 2003 Daredevil film, might have had a fighting chance if it stayed within the boundaries of Miller's rich source material. Instead, it can't even stay consistent with the lackluster film that inspired it.
Continue reading: Elektra Review
The handful of battle scenes that make up a good hour of "Pearl Harbor" are adrenaline-pumping and hyper-realistic on a massive scale.
You feel the impact of every single 7.7mm round from dive-bombing Japanese Zeros as they rip through pavement, planes and people in the infamous attack around which the film in centered. Director Michael Bay's camera goes inside cockpits, rides along on bombs from release to explosion, captures the terror of a torpedo in the water from the deck of a ship and includes some of the best special effects ever put on film.
The money shot is a hull-buckling blast that rips through the USS Arizona. It makes being on a luxury liner hit by an iceberg look like a 25-cent carnival ride.

An unremarkably routine superhero movie based on the cult-favorite comic book about a satanically-costumed blind vigilante, "Daredevil" plays like a C-grade grad project for a night school course called Superhero Filmmaking 101.
Faithful to his inspiration -- the era of "Daredevil" issues written by "Batman" revitalizer Frank Miller and comic-crazy film director Kevin Smith -- in several important details, writer-director Mark Steven Johnson's one stroke of true genius comes in the pulses of fluid, misty, ghostly imagery he uses to depict the sightless crime fighter's enhanced ability to "see" through sound waves and smells.
But most of the picture apes its action style -- and many whole fight scenes -- from last year's "Spider-Man." It has the same ineffectual opening voice-over, the same unconvincingly CGI-assisted rooftop leaping and building-swinging (Daredevil uses a grappling-hook-modified walking cane instead of spider-webbing) and its hero has the same slow-mo back-flip method of dodging weapons thrown by villains.
