Jennifer Garner, 45, is the epitome of class. Though her family is being dragged back into the public eye amid reports her estranged husband Ben Affleck, 44, had an intense romance with his current girlfriend Lindsay Shookus before they filed for divorce, Jen is holding her head high and keeping herself in shape. Actually, she may be trying to get even more in shape, if you know what we mean. On July 8, just one day after Us Weekly revealed Ben’s scandal, the actress was spotted smiling from ear to ear while heading to the gym for a workout — for the second time since the news broke!
Though some reports have claimed Jen is “devastated” by the news, she seemed to be rising above it all. Or heading to the gym to get to work on one hell of a revenge bod! The former Alias star was dressed in all black, wearing a long sleeve top and capri leggings. She was sporting a pair of Asics running shoes, a favorite of runners like Jen. The mother of three came out of that gym looking like she couldn’t care less about anything going on with Ben, including the fact he had been spotted out on a romantic date with Lindsay the night before.

Multiple sources told PEOPLE that Ben and the SNL producer had a “full-on had an affair” in 2013, when they were both still married, and Jen discovered the scandal in 2015. “They would fly back and forth, but he would mostly visit her in New York,” an insider said. “They didn’t hide…They would use the Mandarin Oriental [hotel]. They were regulars.”
“Both of them were married at the time. They were having secret rendezvous every time he came in to New York City and other places, too. Both of them were cheating on their spouses so they were very careful about it. Jen and [Lindsay’s’] husband both found out about it around the same time” a few years later, another insider told PEOPLE. Ben and Jen separated in 2015 and despite a couple years filled with what appeared to be attempts to reconcile, they filed for divorce in April 2017. Ben has since been seen with Lindsay on several dates in LA and London, however, Us Weekly reports they have been together on and off for two years.
