Jennifer Garner went to therapy after her divorce from actor Scott Foley as she had ''a lot of growing up to do''
Jennifer Garner went to therapy after her divorce.
The 37-year-old actress realised she needed help following her split from actor Scott Foley in 2003 because she couldn't express her real feelings.
She said: "I had a lot of growing up to do.
"I don't like to argue. But back then, I couldn't have a fight. I couldn't work things out because I wasn't able to say what I needed to say. It was a huge heartbreak for me. So I went to work on it. I started therapy."
Jennifer is now happily married to Ben Affleck - with who she has two daughters, Violet, four, and 12-month-old Seraphina - and the couple make sure they spend time together without the children to keep the romance alive.
She explained to Parade magazine: "You steal the time. You steal a date, you steal a kiss, you steal a whisper. After the kids are asleep you... well, you know. Whatever it is. You slip away for a night."
The 'Juno' star also admits she sometimes struggles with being a working mother.
She said: "I hate to miss even one bedtime with my girls. I understand that being an actress as well as being at home isn't some heroic thing. That doesn't mean it isn't confusing or difficult - especially that question of how you find a balance."
