Never say never!
Spotted together for the first time since their May 2017 split, the estranged duo were all smiles as they strolled through Manhattan after a two-hour dinner date on July 30.
“Judging by how cozy they looked, you would never guess that they were exes,” a source told Radar. “Ben and Christine insist that they’re staying friendly for the sake of their kids,” Ella, 16, and Quinlin, 13, “but it hasn’t gone unnoticed that they’re still acting like a couple.”
An insider noted the Zoolander star, 52, has been “lonely and miserable” since he and his costar wife, 47, went their separate ways after 17 years of marriage.
“They had their problems, but Ben knows he’s never going to meet someone like her again,” the insider explained. “He’s started to wonder if he didn’t put enough work into the relationship, and he’s been kicking himself that he let her go.”
Since the couple hasn’t yet filed court papers, friends are hoping a full-fledged reconciliation is in the works.
“It’s telling that neither of them is moving forward with the divorce right now,” said the insider. “There’s still a lot of love between them, and it’s clear the spark never went away. They’re just taking each day as it comes.”
