fans, you may want to sit down for this: Jennifer Garner
is dating her leading man Michael Vartan
! The official confirmation — which came as a complete shock to no one — was issued by Garner's spokeswoman, who told Us Weekly
that the pair "were friends and they recently started dating." Garner split from her hubby, ex-Felicity
star Scott Foley
, last April, but according to Us
, she and Vartan didn't start dating until Alias
resumed production two weeks ago. It's not a lie if you believe it.
