Even though the Oscars were more than a month ago, people are apparently STILL talking about Ben Affleck's acceptance speech!
We were SO happy when Argo took home the prize for Best Picture and we got to see the nervous actor/director/producer rush through his thank you's in record time! But apparently some people were a little confused by his phrasing when he thanked his wife Jennifer Garner and said:
"I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It's good. It is work, but the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work with."
It seemed like an extremely sweet moment to us, but some of Bennifer's family and friends took it as a hint that their relationship was on the rocks.
Well now the actress is looking to clear the air and let everyone know that things couldn't be better with her hubby! In a recent interview, Jennifer clarified:
"I know Ben, I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world. I think he was saying, 'Look, what we have is really real and I value it above all and I'm in it with you and I know you are in it with me.' That's the way I took it."
Awww! Isn't that nice!!
Anyone who has been in a relationship knows that they take a little bit of work, especially if you've been married for 10 years and have three kids! But sometimes work can be fun and extremely rewarding!
Besides, the people who misinterpreted Ben's speech probably weren't paying attention to the two love birds gushing over each other at the after party and him talking about how perfect his wifey is!
Sounds like everything is fine to us!
