People magazine published a cover story on Wednesday detailing how Jennifer Garner is moving on from her divorce from Ben Affleck, but the actress wants fans to know she had no involvement in the report. The actress released a statement on Facebook shortly after the publication hit newsstands to clarify that she didn’t participate in the story.

Garner graces the cover of the latest issue of People (see right), which features the headline, “Jennifer Garner: Life After Heartbreak.” Garner and Affleck officially filed for divorce in April after separating nearly two year ago, and the outlet now writes all about her “life as a single mom” to three young kids. The magazine further promises the scoop about how Garner is “moving on, finding happiness and starting over at 45.”

The actress, however, wants it to be known that she never actually sat down for an interview with People. “It has been brought to my attention that there is a People magazine cover and article out today that appear to be coming from me,” the actress wrote in a Facebook post. “It isn’t unusual for me to receive calls from loved ones thinking I forgot to tell them I am pregnant – with twins!- (Geez Louise), but those are so ridiculous they’re easy to ignore.”

Garner added, “This isn’t a tragedy by any measure, but it does affect me and my family and so, before my mom’s garden club lights up her phone, I wanted to set the record straight: I did not pose for this cover. I did not participate in or authorize this article.” She concluded, “While we are here, for what it’s worth: I have three wonderful kids and my family is complete. Have a beautiful day. Love, Jen.”
