"I've always found her to be incredibly authentic. It's part of why people, I think, are drawn to her, because she is real. She also has a great capacity for love. You know, her children are her passion. And so, all that said, she's dealing with the situation, I think, miraculously." Garner and Affleck, 49, share daughters Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and 9-year-old son Samuel.
