Jennifer Garner was the woman Ben Affleck turned to after he split from fiance Jennifer Lopez in 2004.
And now the Argo director has gone back to his Gigli costar which must be a lot for the 13 Going On 30 standout to take in. But a source tells UsWeekly that the 49-year-old Garner – who has three kids with Affleck – is fine with it.
‘JLo has Jennifer Garner’s seal of approval,’ said an insider.
