    oh I like like like them together, such a great couple
    maybe they r always together on set, it get boring sometimes. Maybe 2, 3 months later they will find each other again and come back together
    not that I’m obssessed but they looks like they re matched in heaven :))))

    sunny Says:

    @JC: Ryan Reynolds is married to ScarJo and no way is he cheating on her especially not with Blake Lively. I can not like this girl because there is way too many sources saying she was having an affair with Affleck. I adore Garner and the mother she is to those kids, shame on Lively and Affleck IF this is true.

    I agree. ryan reynolds is married to scarjo and if ryan did cheat with blake then thats a major downgrade.

    Now her and Ben can run off into the sunset together. Jennifer will not mind. She’s rarely ever seen out with him, except for the obligatory photo on occasion.

    I guess their huge egos finally couldn’t fit in one room together ….

    Urgh, he is awful. Even in photos he just looks completely smug, arrogant and obnoxious.

    Sally Says:

    Blake would do anything to get to the top of the A list, including dumping her loyal bf. She’s going to sleep her way to the top! Ben Affleck, Ryan Gosling… who’s next?

    Susan Says:

    Blake and Penn made a nice couple. But, 23 is to young of age to be in a serious relationship in Hollywood. Both of them should enjoy dating other people and working on their careers.

    Blake and Ben never had an affair. That is some crazy rumor haters made up. Ben was to busy directing, acting and doing rewrites for The Town. Ben has always dated women older then him or the same age as him. Jen Garner is 6 months older then Ben. And if you really want critique his dating history…… Gwyneth is the same age, Jen Lopez is 3 years older, Sandra Bullock is 6 years older. I don’t think Ben was interested in Blake.. She is a lovely woman but not his type. She is to young.

    Hyoid Says:

    Well they’re young and lasted 2 years which is a lot in normal standards and astronomical in hollywood’s eyes. They were great together but for this breakup, I can’t really say anything bad about it (or any of the 2 involved), they had a good long run.

    milo Says:

    she’s a ****, things are not great between Jen Garner and Ben Affleck coz of her. She is just thinking that she’s a movie star but the main problem is she Is not talented at all.

    That’s what I think. It’s too bad if that’s true. It seems like Penn was more into her than she was into him.

    The fact that they’re step-siblings and share a blood brother already has gotten in the way. This is the cherry on the sundae I hope.

    gaditana Says:

    I hope and believe that it is, that some day get back together, when both mature and not afraid to compromise, I think what they have, despite their professional lives, is strong and true and just need space to realize and but yet again reinforced

    B Says:

    I’m devastated by this. I loved them so much together. They really were so in love. I’m heartbroken.

    gaditana Says:

    es todo muy raro, dicen que llevabam semanas separados, desde mediados de Septiembre, entonces…¿porque Blake dijo el 2 de Octubre en programa Letterman que SI que tenia novio? y despues hay unas fotos de mediados de Octubre, besándose en el set….si de verdad han roto, ha sido muy recientemente y para nada creo que haya sido por terceras personas, ella en el mes pasado hablo mucho de que queria tener muchos niños, como si entre ellos hubiesen hablado del tema….se dice que Penn no estaba preparado para tal compromiso……si de verdad estan separados, seguro que mas tarde o mas temprano vuelven, no hablan de algo tan serio, si la relacion no es seria o estan seguros de sus sentimientos, solo estan asustados, asi creo yo

  94. 94
    gaditana Says:

    it’s all very odd, say llevabam weeks apart, from mid-September, then … why Blake said on October 2 on Letterman program that IF I had a boyfriend? and then there are photos of mid-October, kissing on the set …. if indeed been broken, has been very recently and not at all think it was by others, her last month he wanted to talk much about having many children, as if between them they had talked about it …. it is said that Penn was not prepared for such an undertaking …… if they really are separate, but certainly sooner or later return, do not talk about something so seriously, if the relationship is not serious or are unsure of their feelings are just scared, so I think

  95. 95
    Melanie Says:


    Im TOTALLY agreeing with you. All of it is just too odd, the pictures showing them close and kissing in MID September and then they are suppossedly broken up then? And then add in its not THEM saying it. Its coming from none other than US weekly! Come on! Talking of babies and big steps and tons that just doesnt come together in all of this, and if they say Ryan Gosling issues.. Im not going to believe, Blake has been around many guys besides just Ryan and they could be friends or doing an upcoming movie for all we know! I dont see EITHER Blake or Penn jumping to a new relationship so soon if it is true! Just all so weird… I smell something fishy?

  96. 96
    Melanie Says:


    Im with you, Ive actually cried for a few days.. I dont believe it, or want to..
