“We did 13 Going On 30, went on and had lives, families, and kids and all kinds of other stuff, and came back and it’s like, ‘Wow, what a journey we’ve taken,’ and here we are,” Mark Ruffalo told ET.

“It was lovely. It was really comforting to be together again, and I don’t think either of us realized how much we needed it and how great we feel,” Jennifer said of their reunion.

Mark also spoke to People, saying “it was like we picked up where we left off.”

“It was like Jenna and Matty went off and had Ryan Reynolds as a kid, and no one can understand how he got so tall.”

Unfortunately, Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner didn’t stay in touch after the release of 13 Going on 30.

“We had a great time together, and I think we would, but then Ben [Affleck] came on the scene and that was the end of that,” Mark revealed during a 2014 episode of Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.

Andy replied jokingly, “I heard he doesn’t allow her to have male friends,” before adding, “I made that up!”

Looking every inch the glamorous movie star, the 49-year-old Miracles From Heaven actress donned a sophisticated black dress from Alexandre Vauthier, which is currently on sale for $2,819 (from $5,638) at Farfetch.
