Jennifer Garner got a sweet hug from Ben Affleck when the pair went on a parents-only brunch date at Cafe Verde in LA yesterday. The couple spent quality time together following Jennifer's quick trip to Japan last week to attend the Marvelous Max Mara event in Tokyo. Jennifer skipped out on another big trip this weekend as she opted to stay home in LA while her Dallas Buyers Club costar Jared Leto jetted off to Italy to premiere their film at the Rome Film Festival on Saturday. Jennifer, Jared, and their costar Matthew McConaughey have all been earning rave reviews in the indie film, and many critics are expecting the trio to land the film a few Oscar nominations once award season gets into full swing.
While Jennifer has been enjoying success of her own, Ben has been hard at work on the highly anticipated film adaptation of Gone Girl. The actor has been filming Gone Girl in LA over the past few weeks while also working on bulking up for his upcoming role as Batman in Batman vs. Superman.
