We're getting pretty hot and heavy into awards season, and you know what that means! It's time for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to set aside their differences and be in love again! Put those old interview-arguments on the back burner where they can simmer until just after the Oscars, when you can go back to taking potshots at each other as per uszj. But this right now is candid photo season, so get your good face on and prep your hugging arms — we're gonna need everything you've got to clear these divorce rumors.

After all, Ben and Jen have months — if not years — of weirdly sniping at each other in interviews and speeches to make up for, so it's not something that a simple anniversary dinner will cover. Nice try though. What this requires is a seemingly candid photo shoot where the two of them are so wrapped up in the bliss of lovin' on each other that they don't even notice the paparazzi taking their photo.

“What, us? We're just about has happy as can be! I'm just strolling back from class with my books, and my quarterback boyfriend is keeping me warm in the crisp Brentwood air. LOOK AT US AND HOW HAPPY WE ARE. My hair always looks this beautiful and wind-fluttered, and Ben's wedding ring is always this prominent! This is just a happily married couple out on a ‘romantic stroll', and please make sure you refer to it in any and all copy. We'd also appreciate liberal use of the term ‘loved-up'. Thank you so much! xoxo Jen”

You can call me a cynic as much as you want, but you can't deny that old Benny boy is looking DIRECTLY INTO THE CAMERA, portrait of subtlety that he is. Part of the magic of this PR strategy is that it looks casual and effortless, so you are effing up, bro. Take a page from your wife's book, because stuff like this is literally what she was born to do. You're a true professional, Jennifer. I'll save you a seat next to me in March so you can pick right back up where you left off — mid-gripe sesh.
