A representative for the Deep water actor told TMZ no one was injured and there was no damage to the car.

The argo director shares Samuel and daughters Violet, 16, and Seraphina, 13, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner† The Justice League actor and the Alias alum, 50, split in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage and finalized their divorce three years later.

The former spouses have become candid about the ups and downs of co-parenting over the years. Shortly after their breakup, Garner told: Vanity Fair that she had “lost the dream of dancing with” [her] husband at [her] daughter’s wedding” one day. Three years later, however, Juno star suggested that their relationship had changed for the better.

“When our kids get married, we’re going to dance, I know that now,” she said The Hollywood Reporter in March 2021. “We are going boogaloo and having a great time. I no longer worry about that.”

Affleck, for his part, has said that despite their separation, the duo still maintain “respect” for each other. “Did we have moments of tension? Did we disagree about custody? Was it difficult for us? Did we get angry? Yes,” he said during a December 2021 interview with Howard Stern† “But fundamentally it is always substantiated with respect. I knew she was a good mother. I hope she knew I was a good father. I was.”

The Good Will Hunting screenwriter has also said that his children’s opinion of him is more important to him than anyone else’s.

“My life is better and I’m happier the more I’m around them,” he said Good morning America in December 2021. “Because the only biography that really means anything is written in the hearts of your children. I’ll be dead long ago, and someone’s going to ask my kids, “How was your father?” And then I know what my life was worth.”
