Jennifer Garner Told Friends Ben Affleck Was Her 'Soul Mate'
"I remember her telling me Ben is her soul mate," Garner's childhood pal tells PEOPLE
“I remember her telling me Ben is her soul mate,” Garner’s childhood pal Elizabeth Cary Lantz Brown told PEOPLE of the actress in 2012.
Garner was so in love with Affleck, for whom she fell on the set of 2003’s Daredevil, that she was hoping to spread the joy around, said Brown.
“She said, if your husband is truly your soul mate, you need to [have kids together,]” Brown recalled.

“They’re really great parents. They’re really involved,” Brown said. “Our conversations weren’t centered on her life as a movie star but her life as a mom. She loves her work, but it’s nothing compared to her kids.”
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” they said in the statement. “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.”
