Ben Affleck and his ex Jennifer Garner proved to be friendly exes on Friday, as they were spotted sharing an affectionate moment in his car.
The Argo director, 51, was pictured leaning on the shoulder of the 13 Going On 30 actress, 51, as she gave him a hug from the backseat of the vehicle.
The two shared a laugh as Affleck — who recently celebrated his first anniversary with current wife Jennifer Lopez — leaned on Jen before dropping her off at her car.
Their youngest daughter, Seraphina, 14, sat in the passenger side next to her father.
Besides Seraphina, the couple also share daughter Violet, 17, and son Samuel, 11.
Garner looked effortlessly cool in a white T-shirt and blue jeans for the outing. She also had a multi-colored cardigan in her hand.
She turned around and smiled at the Gone Girl star before getting into her car.
Affleck and Garner married in 2005 and were married until 2018.
A day after celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary, the couple announced they were separating.
The two ex-spouses share a friendly co-parenting relationship. Through his marriage to JLo, Ben also became a stepfather to her twins Max and Emme, 15.
And the Let’s Get Loud singer is impressed that the Elektra actress is a good co-parent to their blended family.
She called the Alias alum a “great co-parent,” adding that Jennifer and Ben “work really well together.”
“Transition is a process that needs to be handled very carefully,” she told Vogue in November.
“They have so many feelings. They are teenagers. But it’s going very well so far. What I hope to cultivate with our family is that his children have a new ally in me and my children have a new ally in him, someone who truly loves them and cares about them but who can have a different perspective and help me see the things I can. I don’t see it with my child,” she added.
And Ben is not the only one who has evolved. Jennifer has been in a relationship with businessman John Miller, 41, since 2018.
“She loves how little he cares about the limelight or anything related to the Hollywood scene,” a source told Us Weekly last year.
The source added that Garner and Miller are: ‘hAppier is a steady, low-key couple and doesn’t need validation from anyone else to know that they are meant to be together.
“Jen brings out the best in John, and he’s probably the happiest he’s ever been. It’s a loving, healthy relationship.
