When Jennifer Garner has a problem, she finds a solution.
In a new interview, the actress admits she went to therapy after her divorce from actor Scott Foley because she realized she “had a lot of growing up to do.”
“I don’t like to argue. But back then, I couldn’t have a fight. I couldn’t work things out because I wasn’t able to say what I needed to say,” she tells Parade magazine, out Sunday. “It was a huge heartbreak for me. So I went to work on it. I started therapy.”
Now the wife of actor Ben Affleck, Garner says the superstar couple keep their romance alive by stealing, so to speak.
