Here’s reason No. 42 why we love Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner: They give each other the time they need to focus on their careers.
Ben has been hard at work for the past few years — his movie, Argo, won the Academy Award for Best Picture — but now he says he’s taking some time off for his wife, actress Jennifer Garner, to go back to work while he takes care of their three kids.
At the premiere of To The Wonder, Ben, being his usual charming self, told People, “Jennifer is going to work and she told me to go to the gym.”
“I’m preparing myself to take on some more of the burden [at home],” he added. “[Jennifer’s] got a couple of movies coming up, so it’s going to be a little Mr. Mom action, and I’m going to get back in the ring and we’re going to see if I still have it.”
We have no doubt that Ben has the whole Mr. Mom thing in the bag. After all, he and Jennifer seem to really have it together. Ben even referred to their relationship in his emotional Oscar speech saying, “[Our marriage] It’s work, but it’s the best work there is, and there’s no one else I’d rather work with.”
While the “thank you” to his wife raised a few perfectly shaped show business eyebrows, Ben told Access Hollywood, “We work on [our marriage] together, we try our best, nobody’s perfect. I would be lying to you if I said that either she or I were. She’s more perfect than I am, I can tell you that.”
OMG, could he be sweeter? Sounds like Jennifer picked an almost-perfect partner too!
