Speaking to News.com.au, the 45-year-old actress confirmed: “I would not have chosen this life for myself or for my kids."
"I would not choose to be single or be in this position. It’s something that we are working through. I haven’t been on a date and I am not interested in dating,” she tells the news site as she shakes her head.
“People want to set me up and I am just like, ‘No thank you!’”
Garner and Affleck, 45, are co-parenting their three kids: Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Sam, 5.
The Alias star reveals that a big challenge is the conversations she has with her daughters about men.
“We can’t lump all men into [the same category]. We can’t just assume that every man has done something awful or that every man is guilty; due process is important and has to take place.”
“We need to be talking about how to educate and protect our young women and how women can do a better job of standing together. Women need to be there for each other so that we’re a more of a force. When you are siphoned off or siphoned off by yourself, you’re not that scary. Except for me.” She smiles. “I am pretty scary.”
