Jennifer Garner’s boyfriend, John Miller, ‘is just the complete opposite of Ben’

These are photos of Jennifer Garner in an off-the-shoulder Stella McCartney LBD at the Hollywood Film Awards yesterday. She wears a lot of black to events and this is a standard look from her. She did switch up her styling a little with a center part, which is lovely. Her makeup is odd though, and it looks like they forgot to use mascara. They tried something different with her and it didn’t work.

Us Magazine, which is clearly Jennifer’s outlet of choice, ran a story about Jen’s boyfriend, John Miller, which sounded similar to past stories they’ve had on him. Remember the thinly veiled shade about Ben in other US articles about John? I’m thinking about the line from a story in August that Jen “feels like she’s finally found a true partner” in John. This article is more of the same. John has been living with Jen as he’s been evacuated from his home, which is threatened by the terrible fires in California. He’s been so supportive of her since Ben’s relapse, and he’s just the complete opposite of Ben. He’s so wonderful!

Despite the distressing development in Affleck’s recovery from alcoholism, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly that Garner, 47, “knows she can rely on” the businessman, who has been staying with the actress since his home was evacuated in the aftermath of the Getty fire in Los Angeles.

“They are very happy, and going strong,” the source tells Us. “John has been a rock for Jennifer, especially during Ben’s recent relapse…”

Though Garner has said she will always support her ex-husband in his recovery, a source tells Us that the Alias alum’s relationship with Miller, 40, is as solid as ever.

“Ben’s struggles with sobriety don’t impact their relationship because Jennifer doesn’t feel solely responsible for him,” the source reveals. “John is just the complete opposite of Ben though.”

[From US Magazine]

I get it, Jen wants the public to know that she has a boyfriend and that she’s not back with Ben despite their united front after Ben’s relapse. It makes sense. It’s been pointed out so many times that it’s interesting how Jen is never photographed with John. That’s especially true now that we know he’s been staying with her. I think that’s John’s choice, not Jen’s. I’m surprised they’re still together as it can’t be easy to date someone under the microscope of the press and paparazzi. Maybe John is the opposite of Ben in that respect too, he doesn’t want anyone to talk about him.

Here’s Jen at church yesterday. I’m surprised Ben didn’t go with her.

    Holy cow that denim skirt is awful.

    • Aims says:

      I was just thinking that!! Also her makeup is awful.

    • Layla Beans says:

      And so are the shoes. Also, I am so sick of these two. Can’t either stay out of the tabloids for a week? Your kids are old enough to Google. She might not be as big a screw up as Ben, but she is no saint either with every breathless update to the tabs. Ugh. Team kids.

    • Jadedone says:

      She honestly has the worst style ever

  2. P says:

    Her everyday style is awful.

  3. Grumpier than thou says:

    For a beautiful woman it’s utterly mystifying how dowdy she manages to make herself look. That must actually take some real effort.

  4. Sojaschnitzel says:

    ” Her makeup is odd though, and it looks like they forgot to use mascara.”
    This is what people look like when they don’t put on massive fake eyelashes. You’re just so used to seeing artificially enhanced faces that normal ones become confusing.

    • Leriel says:

      Lol yes, because you can easily see mascara on her lashes, her lashes aren’t just curled, and they are her’s.

      • Erinn says:

        I think you’ve nailed it – either they were curled and the mascara didn’t help hold the curl and they kind of ‘fell’, or she has really straight lashes that she didn’t curl at all. They definitely look dark so I think the mascara is there, but without falsies or a good curl they kind of disappear into the photo.

      • Sojaschnitzel says:

        It was quite obvious for me because I too am cursed by short and straight lashes LOL. I know that look. I’d have to put on some fake ones for people to think I even have lashes, but I am a very lazy person and cannot be bothered. Hence my makeup looks .. not so great either 😀

  5. Who ARE These People? says:

    The wildfires are terrible.

    At the same time, he’s low-key moved in. What are the odds he’ll move out once his property is (one hopes!) no longer threatened?

    Reminds me of how many couples move in together because somebody’s lease comes up and it forces the issue.

  6. kerwood says:

    …And Jen won’t hesitate to toss his ass the second Ben comes back AGAIN, or someone better comes along. She’s done it before.

  7. Eliza says:

    She hides him well. We don’t see pics of them together, but plenty of pics of Jen with Affleck. Proof that she shows the public what she wants. That skirt is awful

  8. Jenfan says:

    This is interesting- for 2 reasons- if John is staying with Jen, why has he not been papped there- very easily had photos of Ben arriving and being at her home. Others have also been papped there like Bradley Cooper and Irina before they broke up. I understand this is a temp house for her but the privacy is nothing compared to when they lived together- you could not get a shot by the front door like you can now.

    Also interesting- Backgrid (according to another poster) had photos of Ben and Jen returning to her home after school drop off last week. Where they said his Land Rover had been parked by her house for a few days – trying to indicate he was staying there.

    • skeptical says:

      Because Jen gets papped when SHE wants to be papped.

    • urs says:

      She does not actually want privacy. If she did she would not have purchased the home that she did, right on a street where the paps can camp out and take pics of her front door. She wants to stay accessible to them. She could have moved to a gated community or even outside the pap zone in LA but… that would defeat her true purpose (get photographed, stay relevant any which way).

    • JoJo says:

      I don’t understand why anyone would put stock in an US Mag article at this point? That’s sort of an outdated view. Sure, it was her mag of choice 2+ years ago, before it was acquired by the same company that owns The National Enquirer. The “Garner” beat reporter/s are no longer even with US at this point.

    • anna says:

      I agree, US Weekly is not reliable anymore

      • Lena says:

        They are the mag that have someone giving them stuff about
        Her. I read it and their reporters are no less reliable than ENews, Entertainment Tonight, page 6 etc. and more so than OK, radar online or x17. The others are more hit and miss. People is all mostly stuff only from PR firms.

  9. jess says:

    More proof that she has an ongoing deal with the paps. They sell the photos that she wants them to. Having her boyfriend live with her is not exactly on-brand for her self-righteous, virtuous Christian self, now is it? P.S. Ben was photographed at a poker tournament in Vegas yesterday. He’s on that road to recovery, lol. Jen’s nose area looks so pinched, botox is not her friend.

    • Jenfan says:

      I have read that she is currently in a rental., building a new home. In the home Ben and Jen shared that they sold to Behati and .. it was off street , very private.

      Either way I see your point. If John is really staying there and he hasn’t been papped – there is a deal. But I think Ben also has a deal. His home is literally on the street- no long lens required- and the paps camp there and know all the comings and goings – and not everything is published,

      • R says:

        No. Their old home was NOT private. It still was on an accessible street. Privacy is possible in LA within gated communities. Jen had the perfect opportunity to move to one after the divorce but she didn’t.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        They’ve lived in Brentwood, which is really a small community in a large city. I can totally see why a family with children would want to stay in Brentwood and not be isolated in a gated community. It just isn’t realistic to make judgements about where they live without figuring in the variables like schools, commute, etc. I know many people that live in/near this community, and there are legitimate reasons they might not chose a gated community instead.

        When it comes to paps, Ben benefits more than Jen.

      • anna says:

        At the time of Ben’s intervention last year, Jennifer was stepping over building materials in his driveway and I think Ben made it more private. Matt Damon was photographed there a few times this summer and the house isn’t as exposed.

    • Meg says:

      Where did u see Ben was in Vegas gambling?

    • anna says:

      Ben was at a poker fundraiser for his Eastern Congo Initiative, and made a speech. Matt was with him.

  10. Casey says:

    Do you really not know what a woman looks like without fake lashes? That’s all that happening in that photo. She’s clearly wearing mascara, just no falsies. Do you think those ‘stars without makeup’ photos are really makeup free too?

  11. urs says:

    Her clothes are straight out of Michelle Duggar’s closet.

  12. R says:

    The last large pic on this post is SCARY. Poor thing needs a new plastic surgeon as well as a new narrative. Being Ben’s devoted doormat is not doing her anymore favors. Don’t think the thing with the hidden boyfriend will last. He’s not famous enough for her. She only upgrades and the pathetic truth is, Ben is still her moon and stars.

  13. Lena says:

    I’ll never think those huge, spidery false eyelashes look good on anyone, but since everyone is wearing them now we are adjusting to them so just mascara looks like “nothing”. Jen has been at that house since January but photographers only came when Ben invited them to come. But of course she is blamed for it. Every woman he had been with gets dragged through the mud through her association with him – run Cherry whatever -run!

    • anna says:

      That’s not true. As someone upthread said, there have been photos at her door before, including of Bradley Cooper, Irina and their daughter.

  14. Tiffany says:

    Jen, make up your mind. If you want to do the low key ‘I’m just a Mom when I am not working’ look, okay than.

    But…we know you have money because your handbag game is always on point.

  15. Kitty says:

    You can always tell when a woman ain’t giving up no coochie.

  16. Mle428 says:

    Do you have an ID on her shoes in the LBD? Is that a sparkly stiletto? I’m in a sparkly mood lately…

  17. judith reeder says:

    I love Jen, but looks like she shopped for her clothes at a thrift store!!! she looks sooo bad , her hair looks like she didn’t brush it today!!

  18. RoyalBlue says:

    She cleans up nicely when she goes out. So pretty. I don’t get why the paps take compulsory going to church pictures of her family every single week. It’s reached the stalking Kanye and his Sunday services peak level. I mean nothing new to see here, she has got her mom skirt and shoes on. Big deal, that’s her home style.

    • skeptical says:

      Because Jen has a huge audience of mini-van Moms that that keep her Q rating up and puts her on the ladies mags and get her product endorsements.

      She’s not being stalked in the slightest. She executing a a PR campaign.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        I see. I haven’t seen her in anything for a while excerpt for the odd red carpet walk so I thought she was full time mom now.

  19. Carolnr says:

    I sure hope “John is just the complete opposite of Ben.”
    I imagine Jen got really tired of worrying about Ben’s drinking & gambling. ( after all, they both seem to go hand in hand with Ben, unfortunately)
    The paps have to know where John resides & realized that he was in the fire zone. I am surprised they did not create the story before the ” source” did…
    I don’t get all the horrible comments on her dress & shoes… girl got great legs!!!
