The “Miracles from Heaven” star, who filed for divorce in April nearly two years after the A-list Hollywood couple first split, took the rare step of distancing herself from a People magazine cover story that speculated about when she might start dating again.

She added that it was ”not unusual for me to receive calls from loved ones thinking I forgot to tell them I am pregnant--with twins!This was a lengthy “hang out” session with Affleck and Shookus on Saturday afternoon.On Saturday, Affleck, 45, and the “Saturday Night Live” producer, 37, first had a late afternoon bite at a rustic-chic restaurant in Brentwood and then headed over to Garner’s posh home in nearby Pacific Palisades, the Daily Mail said, citing the paparazzi agency X17Online.But the fact remains that new or forgotten evidence of appalling behavior on Affleck's part keeps making the rounds on social media, and the actor is currently making the situation worse by keeping quiet.The latest allegation comes from makeup artist Annamarie Tindler, who tweeted yesterday that Affleck sexually assaulted her in 2014.“For what it’s worth: I have three wonderful kids and my family is complete,” she wrote.

Affleck, 45, the director of Oscar-winning movie “Argo,” announced in March that he had been in rehab for alcohol addiction and thanked Garner for her support.

(Shookus split from her husband, Kevin Miller, then a fellow producer, in 2014.) The first source close to Garner says “it would have been easier for Jen if Ben would have just dated someone that Jen wasn’t familiar with.” But another source says Garner, 45, has long since moved on: “Of course there are issues given it was a major affair, but Jen is her own woman and is completely fine. Affleck completed treatment for alcohol addiction in March.
