A source said: "It was important for both Ben and Jen to get away from the media spotlight and spend quiet time with the kids. They have been spending a lot of time with the kids. This has been hard for everyone, but they are both doing everything to put the kids first."

The source went on to add that the 42-year-old 'Gone Girl' actor looked "gray", while his 43-year-old former wife seemed happier.

Speaking to the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column, the source said: "Ben looked more gray then usual. but Jen was in great spirits. Jen seemed in a great mood, and was spotted working out with a trainer.

"The gray -- it's a concern. Ben and Jen are just worried about how the kids will adjust. That's why they went away together."
