Ben Affleck on Wife Jennifer Garner: "She's More Perfect Than I Am"
Ben Affleck's greatest achievement in life has nothing to do with nabbing the award for Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday, Feb. 24. According to the 40-year-old director, star and producer of Argo, his proudest accomplishment is finding a soulmate in Jennifer Garner.
After thanking the Odd Life of Timothy Green actress during the ABC broadcast, the two-time Oscar winner -- he was first honored for co-writing the screenplay for Good Will Hunting 15 years ago -- spoke to Access Hollywood about how much Garner, 40, means to him.
"All marriages, all relationships to a certain extent, require your work. They require work and investment," Affleck said, riffing off his heartfelt, off-the-cuff acceptance speech. "We work on it 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."
The filmmaker continued, "We do our best. She's committed. She's as committed as I am. We work together, and we have three great kids." (Married since June 2005, the A-list actors are parents to Violet, 7, Seraphina, 4, and Sam, 12 months.)
Hours before Affleck took home the night's top honor (along with producing partners George Clooney and Grant Heslov), Garner told ABC she had high hopes for her hubby. "I can't even talk about it," the Gucci-clad star said as tears welled up in her eyes. "I'm a puddle."
