Ben Affleck's relationship with Jennifer Garner is over, but RadarOnline.com has learned the he has set his sights on a new Jennifer!
"Ben thinks that Jennifer Lawrence is a great actress and he loves her look," an insider told Radar.
Now, Affleck is trying to finagle his way into working with Oscar-winning Lawrence.
"Ben wants to do a movie with her," noted the insider, who reveals the 43-year-old Batman v. Superman actor "wants to challenge her to do a different kind of film."
One of the major reasons Affleck is attracted to 25-year-old Lawrence is because she reminds him of how his ex "used to be," pointed out the insider, adding that Garner "was once the new 'it' girl" too, and there was a time when she did all her own stunts, much like Lawrence now.
"They've been emailing and talking about scripts," the insider told Radar. "He wants to get coffee or lunch with her, and he's trying to do what he normally does, which is to arrange a 'working date' in Ventura," outside Los Angeles, "in order to stay off the radar."
While Affleck makes his plans, Garner, 43, has gotten wind of his latest obsession with Lawrence — and she's not happy about it.
"There's that jealousy thing, because everyone wants JLaw in their films — including her ex!" said the insider. "Jennifer hates that Ben usually gets whatever he wants."
