Jennifer Garner: Ben and I always put kids first

jennifer-garner-the-20th-annual-screen-actors_4030590 In an interview with Radio Times magazine Jennifer Garner explained how she and her husband Ben Affleck always put their children first and organize their careers around the needs of their three kids.

Asked if she wanted Ben to take on the role of Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, she said: ”Of course I was in favor of him doing the part. But the kids don’t really get it. They don’t really know those films. They’ll understand soon enough but right now that’s a bit of a fog for them.

”Thankfully we don’t look at the year ahead and go, ‘OK I’ll work these two months, you stay at home.’ It’s more like, ‘This has come up.’ So before we panic and say we can’t do it, let’s sit down together and see if we can make it happen.” also said that compromise is what makes her marriage work.

”After I did Dallas Buyers Club I took another break because I wanted to be around for Ben when he was travelling with Argo. I felt like I needed to be there with him, which wasn’t a decision I took lightly. But Ben had been home while I was working and, really, we just try and make it work,” she added.

    Love is a great work too and I am happy the couple of Ben and Jennifer understand this and is not going to lose their marriage due to misunderstandings. They try hard to make it work and it works. I wish this couple much love and happiness for many years to come. This picture is amazing, they look very happy.

    I am very happy for Jenny and Ben. They make a great couple! I wish them much love and happiness till the rest of their days. They raise kids the way it should be and they dedicate time to the family – this is very important – to compromise and find time in their very busy acting schedules. I simply admire them and they look just perfect together!

    Awe I love Jennifer Garner so much, she is so cute and really is kind by her nature, she is not pretending at all, she is just being the person she really is, and by being this person she makes the day for everyone who is around her. I guess Ben Affleck is a very lucky man, at the beginning of their relationship after he just got separated with Jennifer Lopez, I felt sorry for him by thinking how could he let go of such a beauty as Jennifer Lopez for the sake of such simple and not really noticeable girl as Jennifer Garner. But now I understand everything perfectly, being married or being with someone in a relationship is not about being around beauty, as physical appearance tends to change or go away by each year passing, so the wiser we become, the more we understand, that it is better to choose harmony and coziness in the family, a house full of laughter and happy kids there you would love to come back from work every single evening, than being around beauty and gossips but feeling emptiness in the heart.

    I guess Ben Affleck is a very lucky man, as he met a wonderful woman who didn’t care about her carrier that much, but got all concentrated about her husband and family. I am really proud of Jennifer Garner for some reason. I remember I saw her movie “From 13 to 30”, and I think that attitude that she was showing, I mean the one where she was a thirty years old woman acting like a thirteen years old, that girl whom she was performing, I think that was exactly who Jennifer in reality is! She has a kind heart, and it is obvious in every interview she is giving. And of course the fact that she have left her carrier for the sake of Ben’s carrier and born three wonderful children is also speaking about her very well. I hate women who are so much into their work and achieving success that they do not really care about their husbands or families, all they see is another goal they are setting, and another ambition they are getting out of the sudden, I guess with this kind of women it is very difficult to live or built a family. And that is one of the major reasons why the marriages in Hollywood do not really last for too long.

    I am wondering when will Jennifer Garner finally think of her own carrier and start working herself, I mean it is not because their family needs some money, but it is pretty obvious the fact that she is a very talented actress, and it would be a shame if Hollywood would lost her talent for good. Hmm I didn’t even noticed how time has passed and they are already having three kids together. I think their all marriage is still on due to her, as it seems that she is a very understanding and wise woman who knows the right top of the priorities. I think Ben have done the right choice when he married her, and I am sure that half of the Hollywood men are envy on him due to the fact that he has such a successful marriage.
