Jennifer Garner Hangs With Paltrow, Bieber On Fun Night Out

Jennifer Garner has been in the news quite a bit lately for some rather sad reasons. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s marriage had long been held up as one of those that proved Hollywood marriages could work. It turns out their marriage wasn’t as picture perfect as first thought, and the couple are now on the outs. Fortunately, it appears Jennifer Garner is starting to move on with her life, having recently spotted out and about with some rather famous friends.

In what is the first public event since the pair’s split, Jennifer Garner got out for a good cause and ended up hanging with other big-name Hollywood celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Justin Bieber. People Magazine reports that the actress made an appearance at the Think It Up telecast event Friday in Santa Monica, California. The event is geared towards raising money and awareness about education issues in America.

Jennifer Garner was joined at the event by other stars such as Halle Berry, Seth Meyers, Julie Chen, Terry Crews, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Justin Bieber, and Kacey Musgraves. Bieber and Musgraves actually sang a duet later in the evening as viewers continued to tune in to watch the star-studded cast. This was the first time this event has been held, but Jennifer Garner and company are certainly hoping it can become an annual event.

Us Weekly points out that the biggest news of all surrounding Jennifer Garner is likely that she was spotted again without her wedding ring. This is the second time photogs have managed to get a good look at her hand, and both times have seen it come up empty. The other time was when the actress was just out and about doing her business. It would seem as though this appearance, when she knew she was going to be in front of the cameras carries more weight. Jennifer Garner was all smiles at the event, perhaps showing even more that she has managed to move on without Ben Affleck. Other reports indicate that she’s thrown herself into spending time with some old friends as well as some new ones. Reports indicate that Gwyneth Paltrow, who has gone through her own marriage troubles in the recent year, has been counseling Jennifer Garner and helping her through this difficult time.
