Jennifer Garner Looks Carefree in LA Amid Reports That She Confronted Ben's Mistress

Jennifer Garner was all smiles while leaving the gym after a workout with a friend in LA on Tuesday. The actress wore all black and sported her famous grin for the cameras as she headed into a nearby cafe. Jen's carefree morning comes on the heels of new reports that she confronted her estranged husband Ben Affleck's new girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus, after finding out about their affair in 2015; Jennifer was working in NYC when she approached the Saturday Night Live producer about the fling. "Lindsay refused to back down or quit the affair," People reports.

Ben and Lindsay allegedly began their affair in 2013, roughly two years before he and Jennifer announced their plans to separate. At the time, Lindsay was also still with her husband Kevin Miller, then a fellow SNL producer. The two split in 2014. Sources also say that Jennifer spoke to Kevin Miller about the affair after he and Lindsay split in 2014, showing him text messages between Ben and Lindsay after an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where Kevin now works.
