popularity, she began dating co-star Scott Foley soon after meeting him on the set of the series and the couple walked down the aisle on October 19, 2000. Her part in "Alias" eventually won her a major supporting role on "The Time of Your Life," which was quickly canceled due to ratings disappointment, and a recurring role in the series "Felicity."
It was through the latter project that she gained notice, billed to play the fun supporting role of the increasingly fed-up girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher's lame-brained hero in the goofy comedy "Dude, Where's My Car?" in 2000.

Awaiting for her divorce to Foley to become official, Garner dated her "Alias" co-star Michael Vartan, yet kept their relationship low key until she came up with confirmation of their break up in August 2003. She became single again on March 30, 2004 and started dating her "Daredevil" co-star Ben Affleck in July the same year. Their romance remained low key as well until she was reported pregnant.
