Ben Affleck Says That Jennifer Takes Care Of The “Lion’s Share” Of The Responsibilities In Their Life
On Wednesday night, Jennifer Garner hosted something called the Save the Children Illumination Gala (not to be confused with the Children of the Illuminati Gala, which is hosted every year by Blue Ivy Carter, or “Save that Child!“, the words you shout every time you see a picture of Kim Kardashian holding North West) and one of the awards they handed out was to her husband Ben Affleck. But before Jen presented her husband with an award on stage, Page Six says Ben presented his wife with some thank yous for taking care of all the boring shit at home while he fucks off and plays Batman:
The 42-year-old actor says he’s grateful that his wife takes on the “lion’s share” of responsibilities, dedicating her time to raising their three young children, while maintaining her career and charity work.
“She’s been really smart about choosing her projects, doing ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ or ‘Alexander and the Terrible Day,’ smart, good movies that luckily have been successful. And then, they’re not so time-consuming that she can’t do this work and be there for our kids, which is the most important thing to her.”
Then he added (he totally didn’t): “I really can’t thank her enough for taking care of the kids, because Daddy likes to do a lot of stuff that isn’t exactly kid-friendly, if you catch my drift. I can only imagine that the only thing casinos like less than finding out you’ve been counting cards is discovering that you’ve snuck in a couple of minors so you could play a couple quick hands of blackjack.”
And all that talk about “lion’s share” of the work just made me picture Jennifer Garner dragging an antelope by her teeth through the backyard while a meerkat and a warthog sing a catchy song about taking it easy.
