Wow! Jennifer Garner sure didn’t hold anything back in her brutally honest new interview in ‘Vanity Fair.’ She’s shockingly accepting just as much blame as Ben Affleck in the breakdown of their marriage, even though she always seemed like the perfect wife.
So heartbreaking! Actress Jennifer Garner, 43, has opened up for the very first time about her marriage to Ben Affleck, 43, and why it came to an end. Even though she worked so hard to make their 10 year marriage a success, she knows she failed along the way, and has told the magazine, “there’s no way I get off in this” by accepting that she’s equally to blame for their divorce.
“I’m a pretty hard worker. It’s one of the pains in my life that something I believe in so strongly I’ve completely failed at twice. You have to have two people to dance a marriage,” Jen revealed when asked what more she could have done to save her marriage to Ben.”My heart’s a little on the tender side right now, and it’s always easier to focus on the ways that you feel hurt, but I know that, with time and some perspective, I’ll have a clearer sense of where I let the system down, because there’s no way I get off in this.” How sad!
Jen always seemed like the perfect wife and mother, and she always stood by Ben’s side throughout good times and bad. It’s so brutally honest of her to drop a truth bomb that she’s just as much to blame as the Batman vs. Superman actor for why they couldn’t go the distance. The Vanity Fair reporter did note that Jen’s voice was filled with emotion when she gave that response so obviously she’s still trying to figure out what else she could have done to make things work. Watch Jennifer’s butt-kicking role on Alias with seasons 1-5 right here.
But she did admit there’s one upside to the split is that now she will have a lot more “me” time. “I definitely put a lot of time towards my marriage that I will now have for myself,” she says. “I don’t know how I will use that.” We know how, get back to making great movies Jen! We can’t wait to see what roles come your way now.
