Ben Affleck Casting Jennifer Garner In Movie To Save Marriage?
Ben Affleck is NOT casting Jennifer Garner in one of his upcoming movies in an effort to save their marriage, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”
According to Life & Style, the actor wants Garner to play his wife in the upcoming courtroom drama, Witness for the Prosecution, which he’s also directing. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid Affleck believes the project “will be a total re-bonding experience” for the couple, who met on the set of 2003’s Daredevil. The magazine’s ill-informed insider adds, “Ben’s been on a quest to get Jen to trust him again. He feels working together on a set for six or seven months will do the trick.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Affleck, who exclusively tells us the tabloid’s story is simply “not true.” The actor-director isn’t using a film project to repair his relationship, and the outlet’s claim otherwise is just ridiculous. Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by Life & Style’s tall tale, considering we’ve repeatedly corrected the tabloid’s many false stories about the ex-couple.
Gossip Cop most recently debunked the magazine’s phony cover story that alleged Garner was divorcing Affleck out of “revenge.” And shortly before that fabrication, we called out the tabloid for wrongly claiming Garner was pregnant and her divorce from Affleck was off. There was no truth to those reports, and the same goes for the publication’s latest one.
