Ben Affleck Won’t Work With Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck Won't Work With Jennifer Garner

Don’t expect Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to star together on the big screen anytime soon. Even though they appeared together in the 2003 movie Daredevil, Affleck hints there won’t be any future projects with his wife.

“Jen is a great actress,” the actor tells US Weekly. “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.”

Affleck knows from experience. When he dated Jennifer Lopez years ago, they costarred in two films that flopped, Gigli and Jersey Girl.

He explained more to Time magazine.

“I think audiences have a hard time suspending disbelief,” he says. “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.”

Affleck is currently promoting The Town while Garner looks after their kids, Violet, 4, and Seraphina, 20 months, in Los Angeles.
