Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner released a joint statement in 2015, announcing that they were splitting up and planned to divorce after 10 years of marriage. They eventually filed for a divorce almost two years later. Since their initial announcement though, the two look like they’ve really been getting along, as they have been seen in public many times together smiling and laughing.
The estranged couple said from the beginning that they were committed to co-parenting their three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. Anyone who wants to succeed at that should take notes because Affleck and Garner have become absolute pros at co-parenting, from taking vacations together to spending the holidays together as a family.
Not only are they determined to keep things as normal as possible for their kids, but they’ve shown that they have remained friends through it all. Here’s a list of how they have proved time and time again that they are the friendliest exes in Hollywood.
1. Garner still hangs out with Affleck’s mom
As we mentioned, Garner has been seen out with Affleck, smiling and laughing post-split, but she’s also been photographed doing the same with his mother. Although Affleck and Garner officially filed for divorce in April 2017, there are no hard feelings towards Garner from her ex’s mom, Christine.
TMZ spotted the two woman hanging out together and chatting it up as they walked down a street in Brentwood, California, proving that Garner is just as friendly with Affleck’s mother as she is with him.
