Anna Marie Tendler later stated that she already had a feeling John was planning to propose because his friend, Peter Holmes had let some information slip. The ex-couple enjoyed what seemed like a fairytale romance for good six years until John dropped the bombshell news of their separation in May 2021, just two months short of their 7th year anniversary.

Everything that has transpired has been totally shocking and I think surreal. In a way, I feel like, well, it can only go up from here, because I reached the depth of where I could go.

Tendler now lives in rural Connecticut in the house she purchased with Mulaney in 2020 before their separation.

She said:

I do miss my friends, and I am aware that I’m maybe a little too young to be living in the middle of the woods by myself. [But] I was able to create the space that, even as a child, I always wanted to live in.

About Anna Marie Tendler’s sexual misconduct accusation against Ben Affleck

Anna Marie Tendler wrote:

“I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my a– at a Golden Globes party in 2014. He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack. I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back? Like most women in these situations, I didn’t say anything but I have thought a lot about what I’d say if I ever saw him again.”
