    First of all I just picked up the new copy of Us weekly featuring The Jen, Scott split plus some things on her and Michael Vartan. There is tons of extra stuff that I left out, this is just the article, I suggest everyone go out and buy it. This is from US WEEKLY, I DID NOT WRITE THIS, just so I don’t get in trouble for copying it. I know Jen’s not reading this but I hope everything works out for the best, you are a great actress and you are my role model. Love ya girl and Happy Birthday!!! Even though it’s not for 2 days. My B-Day is the same day. I’m Sweet 16 yay!!! Hehe. :D :D :D :D


    WHAT WENT WRONG

    Just two days after a glowing Jennifer Garner showed up at the Oscars on March 23, arm in arm with her childhood friend Katie Gage, her handsome husband, Scott Foley, had his own spouseless night out. Attending with his brother a benefit supporting Cedars-Sinai cancer research-their mother died from ovarian cancer-Foley surprised reporters with a dramatic new, nearly all gone buzz cut. “This is for freedom,” the star of NBC’s A.U.S.A. said, explaining his shorn head. “This is just me letting go.”
    Clearly, as Samson knew, sometimes a hair cut has a deeper meaning: A week later, the couple’s publicist officially confirmed that the two-and-a-half-year marriage of Garner and Foley- as first reported in Us—had gone belly up. On April 3,Foley, 30, was seen removing clothes, pictures and books from their $1.2 million Pacific Palisades home (the two moved in only last fall) and loading them into his BMW. “Scott didn’t look happy,” an eyewitness tells Us. “He was scowlding the whole time.” Though their rep called the breakup “mutual,” any hint of trouble was kept close to the vest. On February 9, the couple hit the premiere of her movie Daredevil together; five days later, on Valentines day, they were both in New York City, where Garner, 31, was rehearsing to host Saturday Night Live. “The guys on the staff were salivating for her, but she and Scott were in each others pockets,” a source show insider told Us. Even those closest to the couple were incredulous about the news. After learning of the split, Tangi miller, who costarred with the couple on Felicity, the show on which the two met, said, “Nooo!” after taking a moment to compose herself, she told Us, with tears in her eyes, “I was there when they fell in love.”

    Growing apart
    As shocking as the news was, there were, in hindsight, some signs of trouble along the way. “It’s hard right now spending time with each other,” Foley admitted to Us in January. “It’s stolen moments on the weekends and 3 a.m. when she comes in.” Garner, as famous for her workaholism as she is for her flawless body, logs physically grueling 16 hour days on the Alias set (Me-Damn girl, you are good) Work on Daredevil began one day after she packed up Sydney Bristow’s spy gear last season. According to a source on Alias, “About a dozen times this season we’ve [shot on] the graveyard shift, which goes from 6p.m. to 8a.m.” Simply put, says a Garner business associate, “I don’t think she has time for the marriage.”
    Another factor?
    Divergent career trajectories, some say. When they met, Foley was, as he once called himself, “almost a household name,” and Garner was just another struggling pretty face. Now, his sitcom is on hiatus, while her star keeps rising. (At a recent photo shoot for a magazine, Garner took a cellphone call from Ben Affleck, her Daredevil costar.) “Their roles are reversed from when they met, and it is hard on Scott,” says another source on the Alias set, where Foley visited as recently as March 31. “Scott is not the kind of guy who wants to be Mr. Jennifer Garner.” Says Dr. Susan K. Perry, a social psychologist and author of Loving in Flow, “When both partners are trying to crave out the same spouses in the world, there can be competition.” Further complicating matters is speculation that her sexy onscreen Alias love interest, Michael Vartan, may become an offscreen love interest. One source tells Us that the two, in fact, have just begun dating (both of their reps deny it). A Vartan friend says, “He’s been in love with her for years.” Another close source agrees, saying, “They have chemistry.” Clearly, Vartan has never been shy about his warm feelings toward costar Garner. “Our leading lady, Jennifer, is hands-down fantastic on so many levels,” he has said.
    We’re just normal”
    From the outset, garner and Foley’s relationship seemed unusually wholesome. As newlyweds, the couple proudly told reporters they liked to cook, play scrabble and hang out with their two dogs, Maggie Mae and Charlie Rose, and cat, Wesley. “We’re just a plain old married couple,” she said this February. They met in 1998 when garner was cast opposite Foley as his girlfriend on Felicity. “Keri Russell thought they would be such a great offscreen pair, and she was right.” Says a source on the set. In 2000, the pair wed in a small ceremony behind their Los Angeles home. For Garner, raised in West Virginia, excelling at work has been a pattern. The middle of the 3 daughters born to Bill, a former chemical engineer, and Pat, a retired teacher, she studied ballet, played saxophone and acted at every opportunity. “She was extremely active in the drama department and in Community Theater,” Cathy Casdorph, a counselor at her alma mater George Washington High School tells Us. During high school, she also held a job at Kelley’s Men’s shop in town. “She is one of those people who decided early on what they were going to do and then just did it until it happened,” Says her former boss Mark Morton. Foley also knew early on that he waned to act. After graduating from high school in St. Louis, Missouri he headed for the bright lights of L.A. but after meeting Garner on the set of Felicity (she moved to L.A. after graduating from Denison University in Ohio), his drive seemed to diminish. “I’d like to move to Maine with my lovely Jennifer buy a little farm right ion the ocean and have a sailboat,” he said in 200. “During the day, I could write and make furniture.” But after felicity was canceled last year, domestic bliss took a back seat. “I’ll go a month easily without a day off, and then I’ll get half of one day and we have to look at washers and dryers!” Garner recently griped to GQ. “I don’t know if I’ve changed a roll of toilet paper in two years.” To see his wife more, Foley took up exercise, occasionally joining her at Pro Gym in Brentwood. “He has gotten in great shape,” said Garner in February.
    “Is it final?
    While friends are rooting for reconciliation, the scheduling difficulties plaguing the couple seem far from abating. Garner begins filming the comedy 13 going on 30 in April, and a possible Daredevil sequel and a spin-off for her character, Elektra, are in he works; Foley is currently shooting the Wes Craven thriller Cursed with Christina Ricci. Still, Garner seemed to understand the enormous price of success. “It’s hard to strike a balance between the fact that you’re so grateful to have your job…and at the same time put yourself or your family…first,” she said in February. “I’m definitely learning about that.”


    Once again this is from Us weekly i did not write this, they deserve all the credit. Sorry I would post some pics but my scanner is broken, I’ll see if I can post some soon though.

    i agree mieja, i dont want her and mv to be together either becuase i would lose slight respect for her bc that could possibly mean that she was cheating on scott, which i dont support at all! but i m almost certain that jenn would never do anything like that, or i hope not, but you never know, but i she will still be my favorite actress and i hope this all works out!

    yea it would be a bad move for jen and michael to get together. It would raise too many questions about her being faithful and I just wouldnt want to believe that she wasnt....

    Yes, because people so generally do look happy when they're loading up their possessions. Are they surprised he didn't smile and wave?!?!
