Jennifer Garner

E! NEWS -- Ben Affleck and ex Jennifer Garner are continuing to co-parent their three children and spent Christmas together as a family.

The actors, parents of daughters Violet, 12, and Seraphina, 8, and son Samuel, 5, had announced in 2015 they had made the "difficult decision to divorce" following 10 years of marriage. Both Affleck and Garner filed divorce papers this past April. Since their initial split, they have made it a priority to co-parent their kids and have often spent time all together as a family, celebrating multiple holidays and taking trips.

"Ben and Jen spent Christmas together with friends and family," a source told E! News exclusively on Wednesday. "They were in Montana. They spent the weekend together, and the family had a great time."

"Ben is continuing to work hard on himself, and is taking many different steps that will allow him to be the best father possible," the source said, adding that the actor is in "continual aftercare."

In March, Affleck revealed he had "completed treatment for alcohol addiction." In July, the actor exited the movie Triple Frontier to "take some time to focus on his wellness and his family." He continued outpatient treatment. In November, an insider told E! News that Affleck "a place right now where he is very committed and wants to see this through."

Both Garner and Affleck's girlfriend and SNL producer Lindsay Shookus, who he has been dating for several months, have supported the actor amid his journey to recovery.

The actor and Shookus were spotted on a dinner date at Nobu in Malibu on Tuesday.

"Ben and Lindsay are happy where things are and really enjoy each other's company," the source said on Wednesday.

Ben Affleck

E! NEWS -- Ben Affleck has a new lady in his life, E! News has learned.

The Oscar-winning actor is dating Lindsay Shookus, a producer at Saturday Night Live.

A source tells us that the two are still very much "in the early stages" of their relationship and recently met up while he was in London for work. We're told that the duo caught a showing of Sam Mendes' play Ferryman last week during their trip abroad.

"It's more than a summer fling," the insider shared. "They are having fun and care for each other. It's early and they are taking it slow."

And while the new couple has done their best to keep things under wraps in the beginning stages of their romance, the two stepped out on the town in Los Angeles Thursday night for a quick date night.

Back in April of this year, Jennifer Garner and Ben filed for divorce nearly two years after announcing that they were separating following 10 years of marriage.

According to court documents, the friendly exes filed for joint legal and physical custody of their children.

A source at the time told E! News that the two "were co-parenting" and that the "most important thing in all of this are their kids."

Both Ben and Jen have publically praised one another since announcing that they were splitting.

In fact, in an interview with us, the father of three gushed, "Jen is a superhero mom. She is an amazing mother and I'm really lucky to have her as a partner to co-parent these kids with. We try our best, we put them first and that's what we do."

Meanwhile, Jen told NBC's Today show, "We are definitely a modern family. We're doing really well."

Just days ago, the entire modern family was spotted celebrating the Fourth of July near their home in Los Angeles.

Jen participated in a neighborhood 3K race while her kids and ex smiled and cheered from the sidelines.

Shortly thereafter, the group enjoyed celebrating with their neighbors and taking in the local fireworks show.

Christian Bale

E! NEWS -- Christian Bale's Batman words of wisdom to Ben Affleck were pretty simple.

"Make sure you can piss in that suit," the Dark Knight actor told Affleck, who will make his debut as the Caped Crusader later this month in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

In other words, Affleck made sure that his bat suit included an easy access zipper.

"It's essential," Bale told me while promoting his new movie Knight of Cups. "You don't feel much like a superhero when someone else has to help you pee."

Bale also revealed that he wasn't exactly happy when he first tried on his bat suit back in 2005 for Batman Begins.

"I felt ridiculous and stupid. It didn't fit," he said. "I just left like a rat prat. And then by the time it did fit, I was like I can't do this because I'm claustrophobic. I'm hyperventilating and they cast the wrong person."

Another first we talked about was Bale's first red carpet premiere. He was 14 and it was the royal premiere—Queen Elizabeth was in attendance!—of Empire of the Sun.

Bale was told he had to wear a tux. "I didn't know where to get a tux from and my dad didn't either," he remembered. "We went down that morning thinking, Oh, they got tons of tuxes probably and the only one that fit me was this white one with lifted flowers on it and bright red bow tie. I was mortified. But that's all they had and I turned up in this and everyone was like, 'You're outdoing everyone else, aren't ya?'"

When Bale moved to L.A. a few years later, he got his first taste of the city pretty quickly. "I was renting a place in North Hollywood and we'd arrived on our first night there and there had been shotguns out and choppers above. [They were] arresting somebody right next door to our house," Bale said. "It was the full-on introduction to L.A.

"And then within a couple of days [there was] a big earthquake," he continued. "I had 17 people sleeping on couches and stuff, all friends from England who had come out, and were all running around cheering, 'Earthquake! Earthquake!" and just loving it."

In Knight of Cups, Bale plays a divorced Hollywood screenwriter who seems to go to a lot of parties and sleeps with a lot of women, but makes trips to the desert for "real relaxation and cleansing."

Directed by Terrence Malick, there's not much dialogue in the film. The story is told through images and voiceovers. The cast also includes Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Wes Bentley, Freida Pinto and Teresa Palmer with unexpected cameos by people like Joe Manganiello and Nick Kroll.

"I did hate it for the first year or two. I really did," Bale admits about his initial time in L.A. "Coming from a walking culture, I just don't want to do it. I don't know what to do here. I have to jump in the car all the time. And also, I would just roll up to people's houses without calling beforehand and just knock on the door and be like, 'Hey, how you doing, mate?' And they'd be like, 'What are you doing' and I'm like, 'I'm coming over to hang out,' because that's what we did in England…Here, it's like you just murdered their children with the look they gave you. It's insane."

He eventually grew to love the city—even if it included some car accidents. "I could drive but I would drive around without a license," Bale said. "I got into a couple of accidents but I manage to talk myself out before anyone knowing I didn't have a license at the time. I could drive, but I just hadn't taken many lessons."

Ben Affleck

E! News can exclusively reveal that the recently single Ben Affleck took his two daughters—Violet Affleck, 9, and Seraphina Affleck, 6—to attend Taylor Swift 's fifth and final concert at the Staples Center in L.A. Wednesday night. "They all had a great time," a source says of the Afflecks. "This was something they really wanted to do."

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star, 43, scored extra cool points when they went backstage to meet Taylor. "Everyone was ecstatic!" the source says of meeting the "Shake It Off" singer. "He was excited," the source adds, "as were they."

Taylor asked several stars to join her on stage. While Ben wasn't among them, she sang "Good for You" with Selena Gomez, "Smelly Cat" with Lisa Kudrow and "Mirrors" with Justin Timberlake. "They all had a great time," the source says of Ben and his family, adding that it was "made even better by JT's appearance."

(Ben and Justin, of course, co-starred in 2013's Runner Runner.)

In addition to Ben and his daughters, other famous attendees who were spotted at the concert Wednesday included Miranda Cosgrove, Nina Dobrev, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Calvin Harris, Julianne Hough, Jaime King, Lauren Paul, Ruby Rose,Emma Stone, Zelda Williams and Reese Witherspoon, among many others.

Taylor's 1989 World Tour resumes Saturday at Petco Park in San Diego, Calif.

Ben, meanwhile, has spent a good portion of the summer in Atlanta, where his ex,Jennifer Garner, has been filming the movie Miracles From Heaven. In June, the actors announced plans to divorce after 10 years of marriage.

"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time," Ben and Jennifer told E! News in a statement. "This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."

The exes—who also have a 3-year-old son, Samuel Affleck—have continued to participate in family outings post-split. In July, allegations surfaced that Ben had an affair with the children's 28-year-old nanny, Christine Ouzounian, who no longer works for the family. The actor, for his part, has strongly denied the allegations.

Ben Affleck looked different with his new beard at the "He's Just Not That Into You" Los Angeles California Premiere at the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.Drew Barrymore was all smiles and class like always and Jennifer Connelly wore a green dress that we really have no words for. We thought we were looking at the rain forest. Sorry...We really liked Jimmy Fallon's suit. His wife Nancy looked like a star herself. Scarlett Johansson was dressed to kill in a flowered outfit. Sexy newcomer Daren Kagasoff was also there but a little too casual for a star studded event. Justin long showed up with his look-alike brother, also very casual. Busy Phillips showed up and looked stunning and was not too busy to post for the celebrity snappers.

Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner and hubby Ben Affleck have named their newborn baby daughter Seraphina Rose Elizabeth.The child was born in Los Angeles California last week. No explanation was offered for the name, but it is derived from the Hebrew word seraphim, which means "fiery ones". Speaking before the birth, Affleck insisted he and Garner would opt for a "traditional name" for their second child, who has an older sister, called Violet. We wish the happy couple the very best !
