She speaks!!!!

Vanity Fair JUST released this VERY telling interview with Jennifer Garner, and it. Is. Awesome. I don’t wanna say too much I just want to give you the highlights, and let her own words speak for the effed up situation that is the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner divorce scandal:

On what it was like to be married to Ben Affleck:“I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him,” she says. “And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can’t have these three babies and so much of what we had. 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 most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.”

On Ben and Jen’s marriage being so high profile:“It was a real marriage,” Garner says. “It wasn’t for the cameras. And it was a huge priority for me to stay in it. And that did not work.”

On Ben Affleck’s affair with Christine Ouzounian:“Let me just tell you something,” Garner says. “We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation. Bad judgment? Yes. It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives.”

On staying off the internet during her divorce:“Ben says, ‘Oh, you just don’t care,’ and I say, ‘No, it’s the opposite.’ It hurts me so much, and I care so much,” she says, choosing to not “give a shit” how the divorce looks to the outside world. “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.”

On re-entering the dating world:“I guess. I don’t know. It’s just that [from] everyone that I know that is dating it just seems, well…. Men don’t call anymore…. I want flowers; I don’t want to text. What does that make me? What kind of dinosaur am I?”

Jennifer Garner still seems so…sad. But this is so telling and rich- clearly, the marriage was (and still is!) a very complicated organism.
