Ben Affleck Speaks on Family and How They Make Work “Richer”


Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner must an amazing relationship because both of them seem to always gush about how much they love their family. Ben says that having family in life is extremely important to him but shouldn’t become anyone’s sole purpose either, because when you mix it with work it just makes life”richer” than ever before and that’s something he’s now experiencing for himself:

‘They’re the most important people in my life. Family is a wonderful thing, but it doesn’t mean you can’t do other stuff in your life. In fact, having a family makes whatever other thing you have that much richer. If it was just me, I’d be home alone and think, ‘Well, something good happened at work’, but it’s much nicer to share it with people you love. I think any time you become a richer person you have more substance. I hope that happened to me with having a family, but you never know!”

When it comes to heading to awards ceremonies, Ben and Jen tend to just tell the kids that they’re going on a date together:

”They know, like, the idea that we’re going on a date, but they don’t know that we’re doing a show where they give awards out and that kind of thing.”
