Ben Affleck's new relationship with Lindsay Shookus continues to make headlines, but Jennifer Garner is staying out of it -- and apparently has been for a while.
Amid reports that Affleck's romance with Shookus began in 2013 -- two years before Affleck and Garner announced their separation (ET's source, meanwhile, claims that it didn't become romantic until the separation) -- People claims that Garner once confronted Shookus about the relationship in 2015.
According to People, the 45-year-old actress was on a work trip to New York City when she approached Shookus, a producer on Saturday Night Live, about the romance, however their source says that "Lindsay refused to back down or quit the affair." Since then, Garner and Shookus have not had "any relationship."
Garner has instead been keeping herself occupied by focusing on herself and her children. Here's how she's staying clear of her ex's new relationship.
Putting The Kids First
A source told ET when news broke of Affleck's romance with Shookus that his kids with Garner, 11-year-old Violet, 8-year-old Seraphina and 5-year-old Sam, will remain a priority to both of them.
"Ben and Jen are both young, they won’t close the door on dating. It’s really nice how civil they have both been able to be during all of this," the source said. "Ben and Jen are two people who care deeply for their respective families. That dedication will continue."
A source told ET that the actress is a regular at Body by Simone, and while she usually takes private sessions, she recently attended a group class and worked out in the front row.
"[Garner is] positive, friendly, confident and really into the workout," the source revealed, adding that the mother of three isn't afraid to ask questions, and is almost always makeup-free when arriving to class.
And the hard work in the gym has clearly been playing off -- the brunette beauty looks incredible!
