Jennifer Garner finally opened up about her divorce with Ben Affleck. Fans were heartbroken when they split up after a decade of marriage. 

Garner revealed how she truly feels for Affleck after the divorce. First, however, she clarified that their marriage and their love for each other was the real deal. "It was a real marriage," Garner said. "It wasn't for the cameras. And it was a huge priority for me to stay in it. And that did not work."

She said Affleck was the love of her life and she did not marry him just because he is an actor. The 43-year-old actress shared that given the chance, she would do it all over again. Had it not been true love, she and Affleck would not have been able to create such a great family with three kids, she said. However, she did say that Affleck was a complicated man. "He's the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He's just a complicated guy. I always say, 'When his sun shines on you, you feel it.' But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it's cold. He can cast quite a shadow," she said. 

Most important of all, she answered what most fans like to know -- if they broke up because Affleck was cheating on her with the nanny. Nanny Christine Ouzounian had been hired to take care of the couple's children -- Violet, 10, Seraphina, seven, and Sam, four. Last year, rumors of Affleck's fling with Christine broke out, with speculators saying this was the main reason behind his split from Garner.

Once and for all, she is putting it out there that she and Affleck had already been split up for months before she even heard about the nanny. Therefore, the nanny was not the main reason why they broke up. She also said that no one needs to hate Affleck for her. She said she is taking good care of herself. She admitted that she contributed to the breakup as well, and it was not all Affleck's fault.

Interestingly, there are rumors that the two might get back together, which Garner denied indirectly in this interview. Affleck really considers Garner as his soulmate and that he made a monumental mistake by letting her go. Garner said that she sympathizes with fans who would love to see them get back together since she was the same when Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston broke up.

Here is an official trailer for Garner's upcoming movie, "Miracles from Heaven."
