After news of Jennifer Garner’s divorce from Ben Affleck broke, she reportedly said that she couldn’t remember a time when it was just the two of them. A common feeling for couples who have children early in their relationships, but it’s an unfortunate outcome for one of Hollywood’s favourite pairs. But instead of dwelling on demise of the celebrated couple, fans can at least focus on the happier times for this leading lady. Here are 10 memorable moments from Jennifer Garner’s life before Ben Affleck.
10. Made-for-television Jennifer
Before fame, fortune, and Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner appeared in her first small screen role in the made-for-television movie Zoya, based on a Danielle Steel novel. Jennifer had a relatively minor role playing Sasha, the main character’s “aggressively neurotic daughter” who was the catalyst for “innumerable family crises.” Fans can safely assume that the crises of a young Russian countess’s daughter wouldn’t really mirror the divorce drama of a modern Hollywood star.
