AceShowbiz - Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel have weighed in on their dating rumors. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actors, who play parents for Nick Robinson's Simon in upcoming movie "Love, Simon", laugh the rumors off, assuring that there's no truth to them.
Josh, who split from ex-wife Stacy Ferguson in September 2017, joked, "We're going to church, the whole thing," when asked about the inevitable dating rumors surrounding him and his co-star. Jennifer responded, "Yeah, I know. Did you know you were a Methodist?"
Josh later continued, "We're both private people, I laugh at it [the rumors]." The "Transformers: The Last Knight" actor went on singing praises for the mother of three, saying, "Jen is an amazing catch. She deserves somebody far better than me."
Jennifer and Josh were said to have found love again in each other and built their romance during breaks from the filming of the coming-of-age flick. "That's the best time for those intimate conversations, the ones you have at the beginning of a relationship to happen," a source revealed. "Away from home and looking for companionship, it's easy to see what happened."
The source noted that "anyone in Jen's shoes, after all she went through with Ben [Ben Affleck], would doubt whether they could ever trust a man again," considering that the 45-year-old actress split from the Batman depicter over alleged infidelity. The source, however, added that "Josh is truly a good guy, and spending time with him opened her up emotionally."
The source also claimed that the "Alias" alum and Josh might make a good partner for each other. "Josh is a homebody and craves the simple life," said the source. "With Jen, he'd get that in spades. She's very sweet and family-oriented."
