Jennifer Garner has a lot to say about Ben Affleck and the nanny

JENNIFER GARNER

Jennifer Garner is finally talking about her split, and boy does she have a lot to say.

They seemed like one of the happiest Hollywood couples around, but in June last year, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their split. Since then, Jen's remained mum on the matter - until now. The actress spoke to Vanity Fair this week pretty much baring her entire soul.

“It was a real marriage. It wasn't for the cameras. And it was a huge priority for me to stay in it. And that did not work."

After their split, Ben was linked to the nanny of his three children, which he has vehemently denied. Jennifer said their decision to end things had nothing to do with her.

"We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation. Bad judgment? Yes."

But the saddest bit of the interview was Jen's reaction to the split.

"I turned on CNN one day and there we were. I just won't do it anymore. I took a silent oath with myself last summer to really stay offline. I am totally clueless about all of it." 

"Ben says, 'Oh, you just don't care,' and I say, 'No, it's the opposite.' It hurts me so much, and I care so much."

"I cannot be driven by the optics of this. I cannot let anger or hurt be my engine. I need to move with the big picture always on my mind, and the kids first and foremost."

Power on, Jen.
