Fans of 2003′s Daredevil film…prepare to be devastated. Ben Affleck and beautiful wife Jennifer Garner will not star together in any future films. On a positive note, I think that that particular film had about four fans in total, so Ben’s not crushing too many hearts with the revelation.
When asked by US Weekly, if the happily-married-couple would share a screen in the future, Affleck replied,
“Jen is a great actress … I would be profoundly lucky to work with her. But something tells me that people don’t want to see real-life couples together at the movies.”
Something tells you, eh? That ‘something’ couldn’t refer to the box-office fail that was Gigli, could it? Oh Ben you learn from your mistakes and that’s why we love you.
“I think audiences have a hard time suspending disbelief,” he told Time Magazine, “They already know a whole bunch of things about the relationship you have with the other person and if you try and thrust you and another person into a fictional relationship, I think it is distracting.”
Couldn’t agree more Ben and as well as that, film sets are super stressful and sharing one with your other half could prove destructive to a relationship (as Gigli proved!) and with a family as adorable as Ben and Jen’s – it’s not worth the risk. Team Affleck/Garner is pictured here on 18 September, 2010 taking their daughter Violet to Soccer Kids USA Super Saturday class in Brentwood, CA.
Adorability factor 10!
