Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Garner are both famous single moms who are going through painful and public divorces, and a new report claims the two are bonding over their broken hearts. Could the two actresses be opening up to each other and helping each other get through their breakups?
It’s no doubt that the two would have a lot to talk about if they did get together, but according to Gossip Cop, the OK! Magazine story that said they had a “heart-to-heart” at a recent event is purely fan fiction. The rumor-debunking website couldn’t find a single event both actresses have been to, and there is no evidence the two have ever chatted.
The closest link anyone could make between Garner and Jolie was Us Weekly, who shared a video of Garner joking that she was dating Pitt after he and Jolie split last year. She had at least one of the videographers believing her before she burst into laughter.

Angelina Jolie: "I grew up in this business with my father. I early on realized how average everybody is.
