The couple met in 2000 on the set of the movie Pearl Harbor but made their first appearance as a couple during the 2004 World Series.

They married the following year and remained together until 2015, when Garner filed for divorce. The divorce was finalized in 2018.

Garner later called Affleck the “love of his life” in an interview with Vanity Fair and said, “He’s the brightest person in any room, the most charismatic, the most giving. He’s just a complicated guy.
