Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner went for dinner last Thursday without their children. Today they stepped out together for breakfast. Like you needed reminding that their sort of maybe/maybe not separation is classy and not ugly, in contrast to, well, you know.

Does that have anything to do with it?

Nahhhh… OF COURSE NOT. Celebrities never have ulterior motives when they get papped!

But if you were Ben Affleck’s publicist, you probably wouldn’t mind this so much, would you? With two films coming out this fall, and almost a year and a half that’s passed since the announcement of their separation and the social disappearance of Chrissy O, and Brange making the Affleck-Garner split look like the most benign breakup ever, sightings like these – as accidental and ahem, unintentional, as they are – can only help Ben, non?
