ET: Jennifer Garner and John Miller are ‘in a true honeymoon phase’

I wondered when we would get an update on Jennifer Garner and John Miller. It has been so long! I picture Jennifer Garner marking the date on a wall calendar with a medium-sized heart in pink gel ink, her little symbol for the next time she’s allowed to talk to a journalist. I imagine she times it out like that because that’s totally what I would do. ET notes that they went out to sushi earlier this week, they have photos of them photographed separately. A source told ET all about her relationship, and while they’re not talking engagement yet, they do talk about the future.

A source tells ET the two have “gotten serious” and spend time together with their children from previous marriages. Garner shares three kids with ex-husband Ben Affleck, while Miller has two kids with his ex-wife, concert violinist Caroline Campbell.

“Jen feels so lucky to have met John and their relationship only continues to grow,” the source says. “They both wanted to take it slow, but it has gotten serious and they couldn’t be happier.”

“John’s been at their Palisades house so much lately,” the source adds. “They all [John, Jen and their kids] stay up late playing board games.”

Still, according to the source, Garner isn’t ready to take the next step in their relationship. The 46-year-old actress finalized her divorce from Affleck last October.

“[Garner and Miller are] in a true honeymoon phase in their relationship and while they’ve spoken about a future together, neither of them are ready to plan a wedding or get engaged,” the source says. “Jen has no interest in jumping into marriage quickly. She only just solidified her divorce so right now she just loves all their time together.”

According to the source, Garner’s new man — the CEO and chairman of Cali Group — also shares her healthy interests and loves the outdoors.

“Jen has something very different with John than she had with Ben,” the source says. “She and John are both interested in living a healthy lifestyle, working out and eating well, except for the occasional trip to Chick-fil-A! When they aren’t with the kids, they take time on their own seeing movies and having romantic dinners.”

“They’ve already taken the kids to the mountains together, and Jen’s friends describe John as a mountain man,” the source continues. “He loves to do outdoorsy things.”

As for Garner’s relationship with Affleck, the source says that while the two are still dedicated to co-parenting and the 46-year-old actor still spends time with the family, the amount of time the exes spend together is getting less frequent.

“Jen is trying to move on and has built a healthy foundation with John,” the source notes. “They enjoy their time together and that’s helped Jen put things into perspective.”

“Jen is at a very healthy point in her life,” the source continues. “She adores her kids and her career and has fallen in love with a man who is supportive and loving to both her and the kids.”

On Sunday, Garner and Miller were spotted leaving Blue Ribbon Sushi in Los Angeles separately, both dressed casually in jeans.

For the handful of people who will question whether these details come straight from Jen, read the story. There’s subtle shade for Ben Affleck in there, which I’m sure he deserves I’m just saying. They both live “a healthy lifestyle,” things are “different with John” than with Ben and John “loves to do outdoorsy things.” It actually sounds great for them and I want her to be in a healthy, happy relationship. I just think that she also wants someone who is willing to play the Hollywood game with her and he’s not down with that.

Here’s the video that has some of these quotes. The photos, which don’t even show them together, are around 5 seconds in.

    Eh, good for her. All celebs do the relationship roll out. She looks great- guess that’s what loosing 200lbs of cheating douche bro does for you!

  2. Who ARE these people? says:

    So much saccharine. … why do people feel this is necessary?

  3. BigGirl says:

    At this point, I don’t get these stories anymore. Move on already. “Playing Hollywood game” isn’t that part of the reason she chose Ben and that didn’t work out in some respects. It’s not like JG is a huge box office draw, the minivan crowd is not going to ditch her

  4. minx says:

    She must miss all that press attention about her personal life, the breathless updates. I just don’t see much interest in her love life.

  5. Anon33 says:

    I hope the people who thought she wasn’t planting stories about herself in the press learn from this…

    • Oliphant says:

      Yeah I don’t know why people wouldn’t think she planted stories- they all do it- pap walks etc- ALL OF THEM. It’s just the machinery of business in Hollywood. Bad press? Oh here’s a few pics of me buying toys with my kids, or going to church etc. It is what it is. And we lap it up on gossip sites LOL

    • Jenfan says:

      Yes – I totally agree. If she is not seen with him in public why do we need the roll-out. When she promotes her next movie will she talk about him?
      The purpose of this piece is – she is so serious with him – like they all hang out together like one blended family. And btw – she does not need to hang with Ben anymore.

      If you want a private life stop putting out these stories, and if someone catches you on a date, or you decide to get married again – we will figure it out – surprise us – stop putting this out there.

    • GG says:

      Everything about her since she got together with Affleck has been contrived and phony. Everything. If Ben had managed to revive himself and his career by now, she would still be begging at his feet. Instead he’s been a pathetic loser, struggling to stay sober, dating barely-legal Playmates, and getting fired from Batman. His stock is way down, so she has finally bailed. If he were still on top, there’s no way she would ever trade him in. Doesn’t matter what he’s done to her. She was a willing doormat for 13 years.

    I wonder how many hours of focus grouping it took her PR team to decide on Chick-Filla as the “but she’s not perfect you guys, she eats fast food Just Like You #officiallydowntoearth” detail.

    Like Hollywood movie stars eat at Chick Filla. And you’d think her PR team would know better than to pick a company with a homophobia scandal.

    Maybe one day she’ll have the confidence to rely on her acting for attention, and not shilling her private life.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Glad you called that out. Here’s an update.

      I wondered if she chose a chicken place over a burger place because eating white meat sounds more wholesome and in keeping with her image than eating red meat.

      Or maybe she got paid for product placement.

      • LT says:

        I don’t think she picked Chick Fil A over burgers because of health – it’s because it appeals to her demographic. I don’t know anyone who admits to letting their kids eat at any fast food restaurant other than Whataburger (and that’s just TX), but pretty much every mom I know takes her kids to Chick Fil A….even the ones who were upset about their LGBT stance got over it before peppermint milkshake season.

    • dlc says:

      Of all the places to pick…my sister tried to take me there and I refused.

    • Gina says:

      She tried the whole acting thing: Peppermint and Camping. Both were flops.

  7. Kookila says:

    Ugh. ET Online used the word “healthy” one too many times, 4 to be exact. We get it. She’s the healthy one and by comparison, Ben is not. We’re we in danger of forgetting?

  8. TheOriginalMia says:

    Good for her.

  9. PhillyGal says:

    She’s such an oversharer, which I don’t understand.

  10. Sheila says:

    Hopefully she got some therapy for her codependency issues.

  11. Ali says:

    I think she’d be better suited with someone in the business just not an actor.

    Doesn’t he own fast food restaurants?

  12. gina says:

    I don’t believe that he hangs out with her kids. I don’t even believe that he’s met them yet, or been to her house. The X17 paps camp out on her street. If he were coming and going like that, we would have pics. No, I think that this “relationship” is being put out there like this because people were starting to find her pitiful clinging to Ben and his drama pathetic. She needed a new narrative but I’ll bet anything that behind the scenes, she’s still happily wiping Ben’s ass and waiting for him to call.

    • christian says:

      This. The other day X17 followed Ben to the airport and then looked up the flight log to find out where he was going (Montana). And ET wants to claim that Jen’s “boyfriend” has been spending all of this time at her house yet has never been spotted? Hmmmmmmm. More like, Jen’s PR team tells ET that he’s been there, hanging out with her and the kids, which they want us to believe for some very strange reason.

      • Jenfan says:

        Didn’t she sell her home to Adam and Begati. Maybe when she moved – they don’t know where she lives anymore. Also paps used to camp outside Ben’s door – the 19m house with no privacy – we don’t see any pics or video from that anymore – why?

  13. Sha says:

    So few comments. The interest in her has totally evaporated.
