No strangers to using their voices for causes they believe in, Jennifer Garner listens as Ben Affleck testifies before a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on "Diplomacy, Development and National Security" on Capitol Hill on March 26, 2015.

"[Garner] is very annoyed because it just means more attention on her and the kids as a result of Ben's actions," a source tells E! "She tries to shield them from any and all publicity and scrutiny.

The trouble began for the 45-year-old when video of Affleck groping MTV host Hilarie Burton resurfaced.

The actor issued an apology for the 2003 incident, but other accusations followed soon after.

Last month, Ben and Lindsay were spotted leaving a liquor store together while vacationing in Maine.

"Jen is very surprised that Lindsay is drinking around Ben," the insider says.

The controversy began with duel exposés detailing the shocking sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, the famed producer who rose to power as the co-founder of both Miramax Films and the Weinstein Company.

The charges against Weinstein led to a barrage of stunning revelations against a number of other powerful men in Hollywood, including actor and Oscar-winning director Ben Affleck.

Like many others in Hollywood, Affleck spoke out against Weinstein in a public statement issued not long after word of his appalling misconduct went public.
