Ben Affleck’s chances of a reunion with Jennifer Garner just got worse. The Justice League star was spotted having a tearful reunion with Garner over the weekend.
The Daily Mail released several images of the public spat, including a few that show Garner wiping away tears. Affleck appeared happy while the two loaded their belongings into a car, but once inside the vehicle, the actor’s demeanor changed.
It still isn’t known why Affleck and Garner were arguing, though they just returned home from Affleck’s birthday festivities in Montana. Garner attempted to hide her tears behind a pair of sunglasses while Affleck sported a worn Red Sox hat and a tight T-shirt.
The estranged couple’s children were also present for the outing, including Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4. According to Hollywood Life, Affleck and garner were picking up their kids from martial arts class when the incident occurred.
Despite their struggling marriage, the pair allegedly “got along great” during the birthday getaway, which took place at their go-to vacationing spot, Yellowstone Club in Big Sky.
“They wanted to be together as a family,” an insider revealed to Us Weekly. “There was a cake and they did the usual stuff: hiking and playing outside.”
Although they had a good time celebrating Affleck’s birthday, the insider revealed that the stars “are not getting back together.” In fact, the Miracles from Heaven actress didn’t even “sleep in the same room” as Affleck.
The Suicide Squad star announced his separation from Garner in June of 2015. Since then, the couple has been spotted together on multiple occasions, including a recent golf and ski getaway with Tom Brady and his wife, Gisele Bundchen, back in February.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have remained together for the sake of their children, but the public appearances have led to some speculation that a reunion might be in the works. For now, neither star has commented on the prospects of getting back together, though their divorce is still on hold.
While fans still wonder about the status of their marriage, Garner is getting ready to appear at the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of her movie Wakefield. The actress stars alongside Bryan Cranston in the film and plays the role of Diana Wakefield, the wife of a lawyer who suffered an emotional breakdown.
For his part, Affleck is coming off the release of Suicide Squad and is set to play the part of Christian Wolff in the upcoming movie The Accountant. Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow, J.K. Simmons, and Anna Kendrick star alongside Affleck.

Meanwhile, Celeb Dirty Laundry is reporting that Garner might be staying with Affleck in order to further her career in Hollywood. After all, Affleck’s career has really taken off in recent years, while Garner’s has been struggling.
Is she really using Affleck to land future roles in movies? While it is possible that Garner is staying with Affleck for the publicity, the recent public spat might put an end to their arrangement.
According to Fish Wrapper, the pictures reveal that Garner and Affleck are still dealing with a lot of stress in their relationship. If things don’t change soon, then going through with the divorce might be the only option they have left.
Whatever ends up happening between the estranged couple, it is clear that spending a lot of time together isn’t healthy. Hopefully, the two will be able to work things out, if nothing more than for the sake of their kids.
Fans can watch Garner back in action when Wakefield opens in theaters on September 9. The Accountant, meanwhile, is set to hit theaters on October 14.
