Ben Affleck explains his Oscars speech

images After his speech at the Oscars this year, Ben Affleck sparked rumors about marriage problems by thanking his wife Jennifer Garner for “working on our marriage for 10 Christmases.” Several months later he got the chance to publicly explain what he actually meant.

In his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live, over the weekend, Ben said: “I thanked my wife while saying the essence of marriage is work. Some uncharitable souls on the Internet took that to mean our marriage is some kind of manual labor. That’s not it,” and then he invited his wife to join him on stage.

What would you have called it in a speech?” She simply said: “A gift. Our marriage is a gift.” After that Affleck told her: “I want to tell you how I wish I had ended that speech: I couldn’t do any of the things I do without you, without your support. You’re my angel, my wife, my world.” And that’s when Jennifer revealed to the audience that he was reading his lines from a cue card.
