Exes Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner arrived separately to the Oscars on Feb. 28, but they soon found themselves at the same after-party later that evening. And let’s just say their unfortunate run-in was super awkward. See the pics and get all the details here!
It’s a small world — especially in Hollywood. Unfortunately for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, whose marriage ended in 2015, they wound up at the same Oscars after-party on Feb. 28, where they were spotted awkwardly running into each other.
Ben and Jennifer both attended the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter, and while they kept their distance from each other throughout most of the night, they ended up running into each other as they were leaving the bash. Daily Mail describes their exchange as “frosty.” SEE ALL THE PHOTOS HERE!
The news outlet goes on to claim there didn’t seem to be much bonding while waiting for their car, but a source told PEOPLE they got along just fine inside the party.
“[Ben] and [Jennifer] shared a friendly hug and a kiss, and at one point [Jennifer] held his lapels as she appeared to compliment his look,” the source said. “The two later parted ways, with [Jennifer] staying toward the back of the room with close friends Victor Garber and J.J. Abrams. Later, they had a nice moment where they caught up and a lot of their friends were there – and they chatted and then they left.”
Ben and Jen also reunited at their son’s fourth birthday party on Saturday, Feb. 27, just days after her shocking interview with Vanity Fair, in which she got candid about their very public divorce, was released.
“[Ben’s] the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow,” Jennifer told the magazine.
