Jennifer Garner 'annoyed' over latest Ben Affleck controversy: report

Wonderwall logo Wonderwall 10/12/2017 Mark Gray

Jennifer Garner is upset with her ex Ben Affleck after two videos have surfaced of him being inappropriate around women. 

The incidents in the videos in question all occurred before he and Jen were together, but that hasn't stopped her from being unhappy about them.

Jen "is very annoyed because it just means more attention on her and the kids as a result of Ben's actions," a source told E! News. "She tries to shield them from any and all publicity and scrutiny. She's taking her kids to school and to all of their activities. As far as they know nothing has changed and all is well. That is always her goal but she's been pretty frustrated with him."

Ben was forced to apologize publicly on Oct. 11 for an incident that occurred 14 years ago involving "One Tree Hill" star Hilarie Burton.

The actress claimed that Ben grabbed her breast in 2003 while she appeared on MTV's "Total Request Live." She tweeted that she "had to laugh back then so I wouldn't cry."  Ben Affleck in August © Splash News Ben Affleck in August

After video of the incident surfaced, Ben tweeted, "I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize."

The incident resurfaced after Ben said that he was "sickened" by his old pal Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment claims. Then, on Oct. 11, another video, this one from 2004, surfaced of Ben being inappropriate with a female reporter.  Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner attend the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif., on March 2, 2014. © Evan Agostini/Invision/AP Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner attend the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif., on March 2, 2014.

In that video, he convinces the reporter to sit on his lap while he paws all over her. "They would like the show better if you did it topless, wouldn't they?," he asked her at one point. The reporter, though, has come out and defended Ben.

"It has been blown out of proportion," Anne-Marie Losique said. "This was for the camera. You have to understand that we have done dozens and dozens of interviews like that. It was for a show I was producing, so I was not at all a victim. When the cameras rolled, we would start to do that game. As soon as it stopped rolling, there was none of that. He never touched me in any improper way. He was very respectful, I must say."
