Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood star Ben Af­fleck (above, left) is re­port­edly dev­as­tated fol­low­ing his split from wife, ac­tor Jen­nifer Garner (above, right), and bat­tled to save their 10-year mar­riage. The 42-year-old star, who an­nounced his di­vorce in a joint state­ment with Garner on Tues­day, is now hop­ing to save the re­la­tion­ship for the sake of their three chil­dren, Vi­o­let, nine, Seraphina, six, and Sa­muel, three. “He’s dev­as­tated. No­body in­tends to go down this path. They both bat­tled, and he re­ally bat­tled to save the mar­riage. But ul­ti­mately, it was the best thing for the kids and for him and Jen. These are two peo­ple who re­ally tried to save their mar­riage. They had grown apart and did what was best for their kids,” a source close to Af­fleck said. The Os­car win­ner, who has been stay­ing in ho­tels for the past few months, is now build­ing a sep­a­rate bach­e­lor pad at their home in Cal­i­for­nia so he can con­tinue to be a hands-on fa­ther. “These are things that they have con­sciously done be­cause they want their kids to have it easy,” the source says.
