After months of remaining resolutely silent following the shocking news of her split from husband Ben Affleck, which was announced just one day after their 10th wedding anniversary, Jennifer Garner finally spoke out about the whole ordeal. As the cover star for Vanity Fair‘s March issue, Garner not only opened up for the first time since the news of the split and Ben’s rumored nanny affair, but was also extremely candid about everything, much more so than anyone expected her to be. She didn’t berate Affleck, but she also didn’t shy away from the tough topics and may have actually given away much more than she realized in her interview. Many are still pouring through the interview, finding out more and more along the way, but here are the 6 most shocking revelations from Garner’s chat with the magazine.
6. Disappointed In Herself
Garner is a very down-to-earth celebrity which means she holds her personal values way above the perceived lifestyle of celebrity life, and one of her saddest statements from the interview was how disappointed she was in herself for having two failed marriages, the first one being to Scott Foley. “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. 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.”
