She said, "Ben and I, we broke up three days before our wedding. We had a big wedding planned, 14 ushers and bridesmaids, and three days before we just crumbled under the pressure...For all those years it was really hard, because I didn't just feel like I lost the love of my life, I felt like I lost the best friend that I ever had. And I couldn't talk for so many years, and that was the hardest part." Adding to the conversation, Affleck shared, "When Jen and I broke up before, the catalyst for that was the massive amount of scrutiny around our private life."

She said, "That heartbreak set both of us on a course to figuring ourselves out and to being better people...I feel like I came out the other side. I've made it through. I've made something good of my life. I'm proud of that. But one of the parts of that was admitting to myself you're not perfect, you're not completely whole. And you know what? Something that's worn and older and broken like a nice leather jacket or an old pair of boots is really beautiful. And kind of embracing the beauty of the scars that we pick up along the way."
