Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck celebrate Easter after divorce filing
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck celebrated Easter as a family Sunday in the wake of their divorce filing.

The 45-year-old actress and 44-year-old actor attended church together with their three kids days after Garner filed to end their marriage.

Garner and Affleck were all smiles as they left an Easter service in Los Angeles, according to E! News. The pair, who share 11-year-old Violet, 8-year-old Seraphina and 5-year-old Samuel, wore coordinating outfits in white and shades of blue.

E! News had reported Thursday that Garner and Affleck are officially headed for divorce. The pair appeared to coordinate the move by filing Garner's petition and Affleck's response at the same time, according to Us Weekly.

Garner and Affleck initially announced their separation in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage. Sources told Us Weekly that Affleck, who has reportedly been living in the family's guesthouse, plans to move out now that the split is official.

"Ben will move out and is looking for a property close by so they can continue to coparent as they have been," an insider said. "He will move out when he finds the right place."

TMZ reported Garner and Affleck's divorce will take a minimum of six months to finalize. The actress will next star in The Tribes of Palos Verdes with Maika Monroe, while Affleck is slated for Justice League and The Batman.


Lady Gaga gives first glimpse of 'A Star is Born' remake
Lady Gaga gave fans a first glimpse of her A Star is Born remake Monday.

The 31-year-old singer shared a photo of herself with co-star and director Bradley Cooper after landing the lead role in the new movie.

"I am so excited to star in my first movie alongside someone I'm so lucky to call my friend," Lady Gaga, who will use her legal name, Stefani Germanotta, in the film's credits, wrote on Instagram.

"I always wanted to be an actress on the big screen," she shared. "The story of 'A Star is Born' is so special and I'm so grateful to Bradley for making my dream come true. Can't wait for you to meet Ally. She has her first scene in 5...."

Warner Bros. Pictures announced in August that Lady Gaga and Cooper will star in the film, which marks the actor's directorial debut. Lady Gaga will compose and perform new songs for the movie.

"The world is in for a treat as these great artists craft an all-new vision of A Star is Born," creative development and worldwide production president Greg Silverman said at the time.

Production on the remake is officially underway, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Lady Gaga and Cooper will reportedly film a few scenes at Coachella music festival, which the singer headlined Saturday.

A Star is Born follows an aspiring performer and the industry veteran who helps her break into the entertainment industry. The original 1937 film starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March was remade in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason, and in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

The original directed by Muppets creator Jim Henson before his death at 53 in 1990, featured Connelly in one of her first roles navigating a magical maze in order to save her young brother from the goblin king played by Bowie.
