TGIF, let's play!
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner made a kid-free run to Starbucks this morning before Jen got back into mom mode and took a smiley Violet to class in Santa Monica. Ben's busy promotion schedule for The Town has kept him away from his amazing family since he kicked off his press tour in Venice — Jen, though, was able to join him briefly in Toronto. Ben should be able to stick closer to home now for a bit since his movie is among the handful opening today. One of Ben's costars in the project, Jeremy Renner, is sticking close to the Garner-Affleck clan and has just signed on to star opposite Jen in Better Living Through Chemistry. It was the role of Sidney Bristow in Alias that has Jen cleaning up in Buzz's Kickass Female Characters bracket, so make sure to cast your vote if you'd like to see her make it to their Final Four.

It's a big week for Ben Affleck as his second directorial effort, The Town, arrives in theaters today — see what Buzz thinks of the film! Before Ben segued into being a leading man and a presence behind the lens, he got his start as a screenwriter with his best friend Matt Damon. For this week's Flashback Friday, we're rewinding to 1998 when Matt and Ben scored an Oscar win for penning Good Will Hunting. It's an adorable highlight from both of their remarkable careers, so watch their acceptance speech below!
Jessica Simpson was in a short dress yesterday to shop with her mother, Tina, but today it was her boyfriend Eric Johnson who wore the plaid when the happy couple grabbed lunch at Dos Caminos. Eric has been Jessica's constant companion during their latest East Coast trip, between afternoons out in the city and over-the-top appearances. Jess made time to celebrate her Eric's birthday despite commitments to her brand, and she'll continue juggling her public relationship with work as she piles more projects on her plate.
