Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Step Out Together Amid Divorce Rumors
By Antoinette Bueno
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are putting on a united front in the face of recent split rumors.
The A-list couple was spotted out to lunch together in Brentwood, Calif. on Thursday, showing that they're still together despite reports that the two are separated and heading for a divorce. OK! claims that the 42-year-old Batman v Superman star would like to announce a split before their 10th anniversary on June 29, and prior to the pair's casual lunch date, they hadn't been seen together for some time, further fueling the breakup rumors.
But Ben and the 43-year-old former Alias star kept it casual on Thursday -- both wearing their wedding rings -- sending the message that all is well in the Affleck household.
After their outing, the couple was also spotted getting ice cream with their daughters, Violet, 9, and Seraphina, 6.
Wonderwall's Jessica Wedemeyer recently talked to ET about the growing rumors surrounding one of Hollywood's most popular couples.
"It's not unusual for couples to be apart when one is on set, however Ben has been spotted in Santa Monica -- their home base -- several times in the last month by himself, so it's a little odd that they haven't been seen together when they're so close to home," Wedemeyer said. "Ben and Jennifer reportedly spent her last birthday apart. He was actually photographed the day before her birthday without his wedding ring, however he was in Canada shooting a film, so it's not that unusual."
