Perhaps Ben Affleck is trying to up his London fashion and street-style game, or perhaps he was just wanting to make his eyes stand out more while he continues to try to win over his estranged wife Jennifer Garner, because the Argo actor was spotted in London wearing eyeliner.

The star and Jennifer Garner were snapped by photogs as they left a London restaurant along with their three children. The family is enjoying their time overseas, and while there it seems that Ben has been on his best behavior and possibly attempting to win back Jen’s affections. But why the eyeliner?
Yahoo! explains a possible reason for the defined eyes.
“Affleck is currently in the U.K. to film The Justice League: Part One, which is likely the reason for the makeup. In contrast, Garner appeared to be makeup-free for the family trip. The action star will reprise his role as Batman for the upcoming Justice League film, which will hit theaters Nov. 17, 2017.”
The former celebrity couple have both indicated that they are amicable and are remaining close for the sake of the children, yet on a recent trip to Paris as a family, Ben seemed to be turning up the charm and attempting to woo his ex. The pair was caught in some PDA action on the trip as well and the rumor mill got churning that perhaps they were attempting to rectify things and get their marriage back on track.
Nothing has been confirmed by either stars’ reps. However, months after their split announcement, each were able to talk positively about the other. Ben spoke candidly about Garner, as ET Online reminds, after Affleck spoke with the New York Times.
“Jen’s great. She’s a great person. We’re on great terms. I just saw her this morning, so that’s the reality that I live in.”
Jen also spoke openly about her continued love for Ben in an interview from earlier this year with Vanity Fair.
“I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him. And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can’t have these three babies and so much of what we had. He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.'”
In addition to the rumors that the couple is perhaps rekindling things and preparing to get their marriage back to where it had been, the pregnancy rumors are also rampant. However, the source of the initial story of pregnancy rumors is not entirely reliable.

International Business Times shares about the gossip that is flying around about the couple thanks to the dubious tabloid.
“The report claims that Garner is trying to trap Affleck into marriage with the pregnancy news. A source told National Enquirer that the former couple is expected to soon make the pregnancy news public. Garner and Affleck announced last year that they will end their 10-year marriage but did not reveal a specific reason behind the split. ‘Jen has played Ben like a fiddle. [Jen] always wanted another child with him,’ despite their split. Garner and Affleck have three children — Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4. ‘It’s been Jen’s plan all along to keep [Affleck] guessing, then hit him with the news she’s pregnant,’ the source told National Enquirer.”
Seeing as the tabloid is known to stir up gossip that is based on pure falsehoods, it is unlikely that Garner is pregnant with her and Ben’s fourth child.
