#JenniferGarner Breaks Her Silence on Divorce in #VanityFair

Jennifer Garner has finally addressed reports suggesting Ben Affleck cheated on her with their children's nanny, insisting she had "nothing to do" with their split.
The Hollywood couple stunned fans last June by announcing plans to end its 10-year marriage, and it was subsequently claimed Ben had been having an affair with 28-year-old childminder Christine Ouzounian.
His representative vehemently denied allegations the Gone Girl star had been unfaithful, and now, after months of silence, Jennifer has spoken out to clear up the claims.
"Let me just tell you something: we had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny," the mother-of-three tells Vanity Fair magazine. "She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation."
Jennifer goes on to admit hiring Ouzounian to look after Violet, 10, Seraphina, seven, and four-year-old Samuel didn't work out well and she regrets having to cut the childminder out of her kids' lives so abruptly.
"Bad judgment? Yes," she sighs. "It's not great for your kids for (a nanny) to disappear from their lives."
As a result, Jennifer reveals she still has to "have conversations about the meaning of 'scandal'" with her kids, while she learned to tune out the gossip by switching off her TV and staying away from the Internet.
"I turned on CNN one day, and there we were," she remembers. "I just won't do it anymore. I took a silent oath with myself last summer to really stay offline. I am totally clueless about all of it."
Ben, however, isn't ignoring the gossip completely: "Ben says, 'Oh, you just don't care,' and I say, 'No, it's the opposite,'" she explains. "It hurts me so much, and I care so much. I cannot be driven by the optics of this. I cannot let anger or hurt be my engine. I need to move with the big picture always on my mind, and the kids first and foremost."
Despite their pending divorce, Jennifer insists she has no interest in bad-mouthing her ex - and neither should anyone else.
"People have pain - they do regrettable things, they feel shame, and shame equals pain," she continues. "No one needs to hate him for me. I don't hate him. Certainly we don't have to beat the guy up. Don't worry - my eyes were wide open during the marriage. I'm taking good care of myself." (MT/VF/MT)

#JessicaAlba Scores April 2016 Cover of #Cosmopolitan UK

Given her acting success, business acumen and stunning beauty, Jessica Alba truly is the total package, and she looks incredible on Cosmopolitan UK magazine’s April 2016 cover.
The Honest Company mastermind dons a plunging white playsuit in her front page snapshot, though she hasn’t always loved her feminine flair- “Most of my life, I identified more with my masculine side. I was aggressive and super-masculine in my twenties. I got boobs when I was young, and was like, ‘What do I do?’ Even when I did Dark Angel, I was like [cartoon character] Daria – moody, slouching. I didn't feel comfortable and felt angry, like an imposter. I learnt to be cool with the feminine later. When I turned 30, I thought, ‘Oh, I’m feminine, I’m this sensual person and it's OK.’ I didn’t understand it for so long and felt it held me back. I had to shed all the negativity. I was a glass half-empty girl – now I’m a glass half-full.”
That being said, Jessica wants to make sure her daughters Honor and Haven grow up in a world where ladies get a fair shake- “Women don’t get equal pay. There are not as many women in government positions or business positions. It’s just not equal. And until there is equality, you’re going to feel that, in any industry. But I was like, girls should have an equal seat at the table. Take Jennifer Lawrence. I mean, she’s opening films – she’s the box-office draw just as much as any guy, if not more. She should be compensated for that. It’s a man’s world. From an early age I wanted to be stronger than the boys. It wasn’t enough that I was as good as the girls; I looked at the boys as standard. I was competitive with men. I think it's because men dominated in so many ways in my life. I wanted to be the person who dictated how things were going to be and not have to answer to the  man.

#AvrilLavigne Reunites With Her "Sk8er Boi" #Chad Kroeger

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have sparked reconciliation rumours.
The couple announced their separation in September 2015 after two years of marriage.
However, they certainly looked cosy as they arrived at Clive Davis and The Recording Academy's 2016 Pre-Grammy Gala on Sunday night (14Feb16) arm in arm. Avril also furthered the speculation by posting several pictures of herself and Chad on her Instagram page.
"Grammy Party ..... Feeling great. Lovely night," she captioned one snap.
Neither Avril nor Chad wore their wedding rings though, so it could be that they are just very friendly exes as they have also been working on music together since their split.
Sk8er Boi singer Avril took to Instagram to reveal her split from Nickelback rocker Chad back in September.
"It is with a heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today... Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments," she told fans. "We are still and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support."
Avril was previously married to Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley.
Chad and Avril were just one of the stunning celebrity pairs to attend Clive's party. Pregnant Chrissy Teigen showed off her curves in an eye-catching emerald green dress as her husband John Legend placed a tender hand on her burgeoning bump.
Christina Aguilera also went for a form fitting look in a black gown as she posed alongside fiance Matthew Rutler, while Gwen Stefani looked incredible in a flirty red number as she cuddled up to boyfriend Blake Shelton inside the bash.
Other famous faces at the annual bash included Ciara, Ellie Goulding, Meghan Trainor, Lana Del Rey and Jordin Sparks, while former One Direction bandmates Zayn Malik and Harry Styles enjoyed something of a reunion at the event.
