Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner might be giving things another try! Reports say that the couple have called off their divorce (for now). They had announced their separation back in June 2015, but have always remained close, living together most of the time and co-parenting their kids. Now, “Jen has called off the divorce,” a source close to Garner reports to People. “She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try.” The same source also said that this was a decision they made together, “There is always a chance of reconciliation. They both love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”
And Nicole Kidman has finally cleared up the (hilarious) confusion over her clapping at the Oscars! In the clip, which you can see below, Kidman is seen clapping strangely; arching her fingers outward to create a clap not unlike that of a trained seal. But she finally gave everyone an explanation, saying in an interview on an Australian radio show that the hand positioning was simply to protect the huge Harry Winston ring that had been loaned to her for the ceremony: “It was really awkward, and I was like: ‘Gosh, I really want to clap,'” she said. “I don’t want to not be clapping, which would be worse right? ‘Why isn’t Nicole clapping?'” she said, joking about the inevitable headlines. “So therefore I’m clapping but it was really difficult because I had this huge ring on which was not my own but was absolutely gorgeous and I was terrified of damaging it.” So that explains it!
