Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck's Ex Gwyneth Paltrow Are Totally BFFs Now

jennifer garnerWow, Jennifer Garner and Gwyneth Paltrow sure do have a lot in common these days: Both are uber-famous actresses, both are single moms trying to navigate the choppy waters of amicable co-parenting, and both are now officially exes of Ben Affleck -- so we're betting the two had a lot to talk about at a recent charity event!


The Think It Up telethon in Santa Monica, California, was Garner's very first public event since splitting from Affleck (Think It Up is a charity "aimed at improving education in America by inspiring public school students to turn their passions into projects").

And nope, Garner did not wear her wedding ring -- though she did wear a "Think It Up" T-shirt, as did Paltrow, and the pair were seen chatting it up and posing for pics like old pals. 

Well, of course -- because they're better than old pals, they're old ... well, I'm not really sure what the word is to describe two women who've both been with the same man, but they're old that. And OMG, does that ever mean they have some notes to compare! 

I'd like to think that Gwyneth Paltrow just waltzed right up to Jennifer Garner, took her hands, looked deep into her eyes, and said: 

"Jen. I just want you to know that I feel your pain as you consciously uncouple from Ben, and that I'm here for you if you ever need advice on how to appropriately detox from the relationship using organic turmeric smoothies and crystals harvested from a cave in Iceland by magical dwarves. But damn, what is up with that man leaving his dirty socks all over the place, amirite?!"

How much do I want Jen and Gwynnie to hang out every day and religiously document their blossoming friendship on social media? So much. Just imagine: Trips to the farmer's market! Yoga on the beach! Shopping dates with the girls followed by Mommy & Me mani-pedis! And of course the whole time, Jen and Gwyneth would be talking sh*t about Ben. In a very conscious, evolved sort of way. Naturally.

It's just too GOOP to be true!
