One day later, the duo took their love to Costa Rica on Saturday, March 7. The two were “making out” while waiting in a security line at the airport, according to an eyewitness. The Way Back star and the Knives Out actress continued enjoying their getaway by getting cozy on the beach on Tuesday, March 10.

Affleck shared his love life aspirations during his February Good Morning America interview. “I would love to have a relationship that is deeply meaningful and one to which I could be deeply committed,” he admitted. “Five years from now Ben Affleck is sober and happy and sees his kids three-and-a-half days a week and has made three or four movies that are interesting to him. I directed two [movies] that he is hopefully proud of and is in a healthy, stable, loving, committed relationship.”

The Oscar winner and Garner split in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage and finalized their divorce in October 2018. They are parents of Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 8.

Affleck made headlines last month when he repeatedly spoke out about their breakup, calling the divorce the “biggest regret of my life.” The Alias alum’s boyfriend, John Miller, became “uncomfortable with Ben’s interviews,” a source revealed in February.

The businessman is “empathetic to Ben’s struggles with sobriety, but he worries about how Jennifer has once again become the focus. … The spotlight on Jennifer is intense and Ben needs to consider her feelings before speaking so publicly.”

Us broke the news in October 2018 that Miller and Garner had been dating for six months.
