Ben Affleck Credits Jennifer Garner For Success

Categories: Uncategorized

ben2Ben Affleck is having another incredible year. His latest movie “Gone Girl” is set to be a major contender during the 2015 award show season, he is teaming up with Matt Damon for the return of HBO’s “Project Greenlight” and he recently suited up for his role as Batman in the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” But Affleck isn’t thanking himself for the positive turn in his career — the Oscar winner credits his wife with helping him live up to his Hollywood potential.

In the January issue of UK’s Loaded magazine, the 42-year-old “Argo” director says being in a relationship with Garner allowed him to focus on what was important. “Getting to know Jennifer, falling in love with her and being connected with her gave me a foundation to reach out and say, okay, I’m going to do ‘Hollywoodland.’ I’m going to direct ‘Gone Baby Gone.’ Those were the steps forward I needed to put positive stuff on the board,” he told Loaded, according to the Daily Mail.

That path led Affleck to direct the 2012 film “Argo,” which earned critical acclaim. He walked away with an Oscar for Best Picture and a Golden Globe, Directors Guild of America award, Critic’s Choice award and BAFTA award for Best Director.

But just because Garner helped Affleck get to where he is today doesn’t mean he’s eager to make another movie with her.

“My wife and I made ‘Pearl Harbor’ and ‘Daredevil.’ With our track record, I don’t know if anyone’s looking for a three-quel,” Affleck joked. “She won most of the fights in the movie, which was a pretty good predictor of what would happen down the road — my wife holding swords and beating the living shit out of me.”
