Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner's not letting the rumor mill drag her down.

The 43-year-old actress had a smile on her face Sunday while filming Miracles From Heaven in Atlanta. She didn't appear to be bothered by the Ben Affleck nannygate scandal that made headlines last week, but a source tells E! News that Jen is actually "livid" over the story and eager for it to go away.

(Christine Ouzounian, the family's former nanny, claims she and the actor were intimate, according to one of the caretaker's friends. As E! News previously reported, a rep for Ben called reports of an alleged affair categorically "not true"  and noted that the actor was considering taking legal action.)

Understandably Jennifer isn't happy that her ex, 42, was linked to a much-younger woman in the press, but that doesn't mean she's cutting off contact. "Jen and Ben are still in communication," a source tells E! News. "They are working through the separation for the kids and as a family."

From the time Jen and Ben went public with their plans to divorce after 10 years of marriage, they've made it very clear that daughters Violet, 9, and Seraphina, 6, as well as son Samuel, 3, will remain their top priority. Ben has even been staying in the guest house of Jen's Atlanta rental property during the filming of Miracles From Heaven, and a source tells E! News the actor still plans to stay on the family's Brentwood property when they're back in California, he'll just be in a different house.

We wish them all the best.
