Bennifer forever! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner met up in Detroit to celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary over the weekend, and they did so in very romantic style. The duo went to the French restaurant Bistro 82 in Royal Oak, Michigan, on Sunday night, not far from where Affleck has been filming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
"They were drinking red wine," an onlooker told Us Weekly of the parents of three. "They looked relaxed. No one was really bothering them at all — they were really normal, they fit in," the source added. But of course, "Everyone was freaking out in the restaurant," another source added. "I was starstruck."
"They looked like a great couple. They paid a lot of attention to each other," a restaurant source told People of the casually-dressed couple, who dined for an hour and a half before leaving smiling. The twosome famously married a super-secret wedding in Turks and Caicos in 2005 while Garner was pregnant with their first child.
Affleck and Garner must have had a ton to talk about, what with his new role as Batman and her busy past few days. Their cozy night out capped off a weekend of traveling for Garner, who brought their children to visit her parents in West Virginia. After her down-home few days, "Jennifer sent her kids back to L.A. with a nanny," a source told Us.
Balancing work, love, and family: Now we can see why this comely couple has made it nine years!
