It’s been a long road for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.

Three years after their separation, TMZ reports that that the actors have finally officiated their divorce.

Their delay in separating could be because they decided to split lawyer-free. Instead, they opted to utilise an experienced mediator in their discussions.

And their patience has finally paid off. A hired private judge presiding at LA County Superior Court signed off on their papers this week.

They will also share joint custody of their three children – Violet, 12, Seraphina, nine, and Samuel, six.

It is important to them that they continue to provide the best environment possible for their kids and make them the constant priority.

So, the actors agreed to consult a co-parenting therapist on a monthly basis for a minimum of six months.

Without a prenup in place, celebrity divorces can get quite messy but this appears not to be the case with Jen and Ben.

The two have been fair in their division of assets, agreeing on an amount that they were both happy with.

After the parents separated in 2015, they had put their divorce on hold due to Ben’s struggle with alcohol addiction.

Thankfully, he was able to make a full recovery and get to a good place in his life before deciding on the best way to move forward with Jennifer.

He credited his recovery to the support of his co-parent and his family and is remaining single to continue to focus on his health.

Jen has been dating businessman John Miller. The two seem truly happy together.

We are glad that Jen and Ben have maintained an amicable relationship and continue to put their kids first.

Twitter user are furious with Ben Affleck after the actor appeared to joke about the recent sexual harassment allegations during an interview with MTV.

The Justice League star, who was accused by Hilarie Burton of sexual harassment in 2003, upset some viewers over comments he made during an all-cast interview promoting the new DC film.

When quizzed about which superhero they would like to see cast in a sequel, Ben was quick to suggest the inclusion of Black Canary, because “it would be good if we could use more women.”

But he didn't stop there.

Answering the same question, co-star Ray Fisher, who plays Cyborg in the film, chose the hero Zatanna as his preferred addition – to which Ben replied “the fish nets, right?”

The interviewer then proceeded to ask the cast what they'd get up to if another female superhero where to join the squad.

“I think it would create a different dynamic,” explained Ray, who was then interrupted by Ben's amused response.

“You following the news at all?” the star laughed.

Needless to day, his comments did not go down too well with viewers, many of whom took to Twitter to accuse the actor of making light of the situation.

Ben Affleck has addressed recent accusations of groping and inappropriate behaviour which were made against him by multiple women.

The actor said that he will be assessing his own behaviour in order to become part of the solution, rather than the problem, of sexual harassment. 

'I need to look at my own behaviour and think about how am I behaving, how am I treating people and when I am wrong, admitting it when confronted with it,' he told News.com.au.

'I’m trying to monitor myself and take responsibility.'

'I have to continue the process of trying to be the best version of myself that I can be, for my family, for my children, for my co-stars and for the people that I run into in a day-to-day life,' he said.

He also told the Associated Press that he wished to be a part of the solution towards eliminating sexual harassment towards women. 

The Oscar-winner plans on doing so by examining his own past behaviour. 

Affleck apologised on Twitter for groping actress Hilarie Burton in 2003.

After this, makeup artist Annmarie Tendler alleged that she too is a victim of unwanted groping from Affleck.

She claimed that the actor groped her buttocks at a Golden Globes party in 2014.

New allegations have been made against Ben Affleck, after he apologised for groping actress Hilarie Burton in 2003.

Hilarie criticised the actor after he posted an extensive statement condemning the actions of Harvey Weinstein

One Twitter user reminded the actor that he 'grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though.'

The actress then replied that she 'didn't forget,' prompting the actor's apology.  

Makeup artist Annmarie Tendler has taken to Twitter to allege that she too is a victim of unwanted groping from Affleck. 

In a series of tweets, she claims that the actor touched her without consent. 

'I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014.'

'He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack.'

'I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back?'

'Like most women in these situations I didn't say anything but I have thought a lot about what I'd say if I ever saw him again,' she said.

Earlier this year, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, announced that they would give their marriage another try, after previously deciding to separate in 2015.

However, it looks like the couple couldn’t sort out their differences and have now officially filed for divorce.

The pair married in 2005 after meeting on the set of the comic book action flick, Daredevil, and have three children together.

Jennifer and Ben issued a joint statement announcing their divorce, confirming they remain firm friends and will continue to raise their family together.

‘‘We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter.’’

The couple have managed to stay close throughout separation proceedings – taking family holidays to the Bahamas and even co-hosting a birthday party for their son, Samuel.

The announcement comes just one month after Ben revealed he had completed treatment for his ongoing alcohol addiction.

So, even though Benniffer 2.0 are no more, it looks the they're in a good place going forward. 

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their seperation back in 2015, but now the pair have called off their divorce proceedings 

The couple have reportedly decided to work on their marriage after going through a rocky patch in their relationship. 

“Jen has called off the divorce,” a source told People. 

“She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try.”

“There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”

The pair continued to live together for the majority of the time since the split, and co-parented their three children. 

Thay have also gone on family holidays and spent Christmas together with their kids. 

Fingers crossed these two can make it work!

It has been exactly a year since our favourite celebrity couple announced their intention to go their separate ways, and the world stopped believing in true love for a second. 

On June 30th of last year, Ben Affleck, and Jennifer Garner announced that they would be splitting up after 10 years of, what seemed like, marital bliss.

The couple, who have three kids together, made a statement to E! News where they said "We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time."

It's safe to say that this has been one of the most amicable celebrity splits of all time, leaving us all wondering WHAT is going on? 

A number of months after their announcement, rumours of an affair started to spread. Nicknamed 'nannygate' by the American press, it was revealed that Ben was seeing his children's nanny, which is a real no-no in anyone' s language.

Jennifer, 44, rose above the allegations, and continued to be friendly and civil to her babydaddy.

The question, however, remains: Where do the pair stand today?

Well, according to PEOPLE, there is yet to be any signs of a divorce. A friend of Jennifer's told PEOPLE that "Ben still doesn't want the divorce."

Despite this, it would seem that the separation is still on, with the source going on to say that Jennifer "doesn't seem to mind at all that the divorce is not finalised, but she seems adamant about going through with it." 

However, when Ben, 43, appeared as a guest on the HBO TV show Any Given Wednesday last week, and was asked about his career, he said 'My wife was really instrumental and helpful in me doing a lot of that work.'

Yes, that's right – WIFE.

So no matter what the outcome of this drama, it is clear that Bennifer will always have a lotta love in their hearts for each other.

*Hello darkness, my old friend.*

It seems that the overwhelmingly bad critic reviews for Ben Affleck's latest film Batman v Superman have hit the actor hard if this interview is anything to go by. 

In fact, the 43-year-old looked so distressed when he and Henry Cavill were asked about about the negative response that a pretty spectacular meme was born. 

Yep, #sadaffleck is officially a thing and we are witnessing its birth. 

The now viral meme was solidified when one tech savvy person decided to maximise on Ben Affleck's potent sadness during a promotional interview for the movie. 

Watch the video that started it all below:

Jennifer Garner has opened up about her marriage break-up for the first time in an exclusive interview for the March issue of Vanity Fair. 

While she admitted that things fell apart, she has no regrets about marrying the Hollywood hunk. 

"It was a real marriage. It wasn’t for the cameras. And it was a huge priority for me to stay in it. 

"And that did not work," said the 43-year-old.

"I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him. And I would go back and remake that decision. 

"He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the charismatic, the most generous. 

"He’s just a complicated guy. I always say 'when his sun shines on you, you feel it.' But when it’s shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow."

The obviously heartbroken mother-of-three also spoke about the incident with the nanny. 

Last summer, Ben was accused of sleeping with the nanny to the pair’s three children which culminated in the split but according to Jen, they had been separated for months before that. 

"She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation.

"Bad judgement? Yes.

"It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives. I have had to have conversations about the meaning of 'scandal.' "

As for whether Jen believes the rumours about Ben’s affair with the nanny, she remained diplomatic. 

"He’s still the only person who really knows the truth about things. And I’m still the only person that knows some of his truths."

Despite the turmoil, Jen knows exactly what she will be up to next. 

"I cannot be driven by the optics of this. I cannot let anger or hurt be my engine.

"I need to move with the big picture always on my mind and the kids first and foremost."

Last year was quite disastrous for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck.

Not only was it alleged that Ben had an affair with the nanny (which he probably was because he treated her to dinners and private jets), but the pair also divorced which was going to become a major legal battle.

But hold the phone a moment, the divorced couple are currently on holiday in Montana.

Yep, the pair are on a cosy ski vacay with Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, and their kids.

A source at the resort said that the pair are getting on really well, chatting and laughing and drinking into the early hours.

"They had some serious apres-ski and shut the bar down. They started drinking bloody marys," the source said.

"There were no nannies in sight, but Jen doesn't look like she's harbouring any resentment. Jen and Ben weren't lovey-dovey at all, but were super friendly and happy," they added.

So, does this mean the superstar couple might be getting back together? Only time will tell.

It was the casting decision that caused an international storm: in the role of Christian Grey, Jamie Dornan – known for his trademark facial hair – would appear clean-shaved. 

"Jamie Dornan without a beard is like a cupcake without frosting," one berate individual wrote on Twitter a year ago when the controversial announcement was first made.

Another chipped in with: "If I was Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan kept his beard and Irish accent, Fifty Shades would probably be a lot better."

Rather predictably, here at SHEmazing! Towers we definitely covet the 33-year-old Co Down man's sexy stubble.

But it has come to our attention that the wider public isn't entirely in agreement.

Yes, a brand new survey has now revealed that the likes of Prince Harry, David Beckham, Ben Affleck and Brad Pitt have ALL been deemed to have better beards than Jamie. 

In a survey of 1,000 people carried out by the popular Crown Clinic in Manchester (the same clinic favoured by the likes of Calum Best and Dr Christian from Embarrassing Bodies) the ginger whiskers of royal hottie Prince Harry were deemed the world's most lovely. 

David Beckham and George Clooney slot in at numbers two and three respectively, while Ben Affleck makes number four.

At the other end of the scale, Jake Gyllenhaal is ranked ninth, while our Jamie rounds up the Top 10. 

Interestingly however, women aren't always big fans of facial fuzz: 62 percent say they prefer their lads to be clean-shaven.

Still, growing numbers of men are enhancing their look with either beard or sideburn transplants. Indeed, Crown Clinic says its bookings have jumped by a quarter in the last three years alone.

And surgeon Asim Shahmalak reckons that Prince Harry (who thankfully says he'll be on the market for a while yet) is the facial hair trend-setter of the moment. 

The medic revealed: "The reaction to Prince Harry's beard has been universally positive. While he looks great with his ginger fuzz, the sad fact is almost half of men cannot grow a full beard.

"There are gaps in their beard or sideburns and the end result is patchy and unattractive.

"We can fill in those gaps to make sure any man can get a full beard like Harry."

And frankly, we have no problem with more men being rather more princely… or better still, more like Jamie himself. In the meantime, roll on Movember!

Top 10 celebrity beards, as revealed by Crown Clinic:

  1. Prince Harry
  2. David Beckham
  3. George Clooney
  4. Ben Affleck
  5. Ryan Gosling
  6. Hugh Jackman
  7. Alasdhair Willis
  8. Brad Pitt
  9. Jake Gyllenhaal
  10. Jamie Dornan

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have one of Hollywood's longest-standing friendships, first meeting as kids aged just eight and ten.

But in a new interview, Matt reveals his relationship with Ben hasn't always been easy – quite the opposite in fact.

Ben's career has developed hugely in recent years, with a series of critically acclaimed films and even an Oscar for his work on Argo.

But back in the early Noughties he had a very different image, which Matt says was hard to deal with.

"Ten years ago, the public image of him could not have been farther apart from who he actually is," he tells The Hollywood Reporter.

With films like Gigli, Bounce and Jersey Girl on the go, plus a blossoming romance with J-Lo, Matt admits it was hard to see his long-time friend living a life that wasn't authentic.

"It was like he was being cast in a role, that he was a talentless kind of meathead, with his whole relationship with Jennifer Lopez.

"He just got cast as this person that he wasn't." 

And though Ben seemed fairly happy with his lot, Matt says it was tough on their friendship.

"It was just really painful. It was painful to be his friend, because it wasn't fair, you know? To my mind, nobody really got him at all." 

Not to worry though, as Ben finally got his pal's approval in the end.

"Through his work, he climbed from the bottom of the mountain all the way back up to the top," Matt says. "And past where either of us had ever been."

Compliment or insult? Hard to tell…
