Daredevil co-stars Jennifer Garner and Colin Farrell were “soulmates” all along

A report in the US suggests that the Irish reformed bad boy is chasing the newly single actress 13 years after they worked together.

Since it hit screens in 2003, Daredevil has been known as the movie that brought its stars Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck together.
After getting hot and heavy as each other’s love interest on-screen in the Marvel comic adaption, they married two years later.
Sadly, they’ve become the celebrity break-up story of 2015 after their shock split – and now, according to a report in US magazine The National Enquirer, their fellow Daredevil star Colin Farrell, 39, is looking to finally seize his chance with gorgeous Jen.

“He said he felt sexual tension between them,” a source close to the handsome Irishman says. “He wanted to make a move on her then, but he set his sights elsewhere because she and Ben were already dating.”
Colin, who played the villain Bullseye in their film, proceeded to spend the next 13 years dating so many women that he was labelled “the lusty leprechaun.”
In a recent interview, he declared he “was no longer interested in the chase” and was too busy spending time with his children James, 11 (born to model Kim Bordenave), and Henry, 5 (from his relationship with Alicja Bachleda-Curus), to continue his womanising ways.
“I’ve not dated for, ooh, four years now, what with the work, the kids, and my life,” he says.

Colin has certainly led a spectacular dating life, being linked with everyone from Britney Spears and Angelina Jolie to Demi Moore and, most bizarrely, he admitted to a romantic liaison with Elizabeth Taylor in the final decade of her life. She died in 2011 at age 79, when Colin described her as a “spectacular woman” and read a poem at her funeral.
But, as the Enquirer suggests, it was his stunning co-star Jennifer, now 43, he wanted all along.
“Colin thinks they’re soulmates,” says their insider. “He loves that she’s part Irish and that they’re both tough on the outside and sensitive on the inside.”
So what does Ben, who is maintaining a friendly relationship with Jen, the mother of his three children, think of this gossip?
“To be honest, Ben thinks it’s pretty pathetic,” says the source. “But Jen loves the attention. She always felt flattered by it, and now she’s ready to embrace it!
