Ben Affleck’s Oscar speech, which relied heavily on the theme of marriage as work, prompted some to suspect there was trouble in his union to wife Jennifer Garner.
Fortunately, for the one person whose opinion counts in these matters, the speech was just right.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green star opened up to The Telegraph about her marriage to the Oscar-winning director and how she’s dealt with speculation that her marriage is less-than-steady since her husband’s Oscar speech.
“Poor guy. It’s so horrible to put yourself out there – he didn’t have to worry about it from my point of view.’
While she admits to getting phone calls from friends asking about the status of her relationship following the Oscar telecast, she only has warm feelings about the speech.
“I know Ben, I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world. I think he was saying, ‘Look, what we have is really real and I value it above all and I’m in it with you and I know you are in it with me.’ That’s the way I took it.”
