Despite the constant tabloid headlines claiming that Jennifer Garner is absolutely crushed following her split from Ben Affleck, the actress was all smiles at a charity event for Think It Up. It's her first major event since the public break-up, and it's reassuring to see Jen get out for a good cause. Think It Up works to improve American education by helping students turn their passions into workable projects.
But who says philanthropy requires a solemn approach? Jen had the chance to catch up with Gwyneth Paltrow (in matching shirts no less). There's at least one thing these lovely ladies have in common, and that's parting ways with Affleck.
New friendship goals?
Both Gwyneth and Jen are newly single, with Gwyneth consciously uncoupling from Chris Martin after ten years together. You have to wonder if Gwyneth offered some advice to her new pal. After all, she went through a similar ordeal back in 1997 after dating Ben for three years. Earlier this year, she admitted to Howard Stern that he just wasn't ready for a serious relationship
He was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend.
Sounds like these two could learn a lot from each other, so I'm hoping to see a blossoming friendship throughout the rest of the year.
