Ben Affleck's greatest achievement in life has nothing to do with nabbing the award for Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday, Feb. 24. According to the 40-year-old director, star and producer of Argo, his proudest accomplishment is finding a soulmate in Jennifer Garner.
After thanking the Odd Life of Timothy Green actress during the ABC broadcast, the two-time Oscar winner -- he was first honored for co-writing the screenplay for Good Will Hunting 15 years ago -- spoke to Access Hollywood about how much Garner, 40, means to him.
"All marriages, all relationships to a certain extent, require your work. They require work and investment," Affleck said, riffing off his heartfelt, off-the-cuff acceptance speech. "We work on it together, we try our best. Nobody's perfect. I would be lying to you if I said that either she or I were. She's more perfect than I am, I can tell you that."
The filmmaker continued, "We do our best. She's committed. She's as committed as I am. We work together, and we have three great kids." (Married since June 2005, the A-list actors are parents to Violet, 7, Seraphina, 4, and Sam, 12 months.)
