All that glitters is not gold. Just ask Jennifer Garner.
At one point, there were as many as 15 to 20 cars parked outside of her house on the weekends.
The actress recalls:
“Looking back on that, I really feel the stress of it… I really — I could cry talking about it.”
The 46-year-old adds:
“What I think I’ve learned is that the scrutiny in your private life puts a pressure to make something happen. You feel a pressure to hurry up and get married, ’cause you think that’ll end the, ‘Are they engaged? Are they not?’ And that’s true in the reverse, as well. If you are — if there is any inkling of trouble, or if the tabloids decide there’s trouble, it can create trouble. But to be honest, public scrutiny, everyone says, ‘Oh, you’ve had to go through this in public.’ The public isn’t what’s hard. What’s hard is going through it.”‘
The former couple share three kids, Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6.
The Batman actor has since moved on to Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus.
