Jen and Ben Together Again?
September 15, 2004
Another famous Jen has caught the eye of Ben Affleck. She may be television's top spy, but now her secret cover is blown.
Affleck gushed to us about Emmy-nominated "Alias" star Jennifer Garner after they worked together on the 2003 film "Daredevil," telling us, "She's so sweet and nice and great and terrific."
And he clearly meant what he said, and more, since today, according to Us Weekly Senior Editor Caroline Schaeffer, Garner is the new love of Affleck's life. And after the implosion of his "Bennifer" relationship, Schaeffer claims that bachelor Ben has changed his ways.
"It's a completely different ‘Bennifer' than Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez," says Schaeffer. "They're very under the radar. The only place that Ben and Jen have been spotted together showing any kind of affection is at Starbucks at about six in the morning."
Affleck became Garner's Romeo when he made a cameo in her "Daredevil" spin-off "Elektra" this past July in Vancouver. Since then, Schaefer says Ben and his new Jen have been inseparable.
"They're sneaking around, not going out together," Schaefer tells us.
But while he may have won Jen's heart, Affleck apparently isn't so close with Garner's castmate and ex-boyfriend, Michael Vartan. In fact, according to Us Weekly, Ben bowed out of a Las Vegas bash last weekend to avoid an encounter with the male "Alias" star.
"He reportedly said he couldn't go," reports Schaefer. "And flew back to L.A. and conveniently went back to Jennifer Garner's place."
And don't look for any statements to the press during this Affleck relationship. Odds are that this time around, Ben will play his romance cards close to the vest.
