Jennifer Garner has a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter about his wife Jennifer Garner and how she’s affected his life, hanging out with best friend Matt Damon, and owning a gun to protect his family from stalkers.
Talking about hanging out with Damon, he says, “We see each other almost too often. I wonder if his wife is thinking, ‘Is he really going to come over every night?”
On owning guns, he says, “The stalker had been to our house many times and ultimately came to my children’s school and was arrested. It gave me a stronger sense of feeling protective about my family. There’s a lot of crazy, weird people out there. It’s an ugly world.”
He also talks about his marriage, saying, “Jennifer played such a profound role in making me a better person. We don’t have a perfect marriage, but she inspired me; and finding myself in that marriage and having a child dovetailed with getting to be a little more mature.”
Affleck also adds that he still does keep in touch with his ex-girlfriend, including his high school girlfriend and Jennifer Lopez. He mentions that he got in touch with her after she got American Idol, and told her that it was a good career decision. He adds that she’s gone through things in her life that he thought was unfair, and is ‘happy’ to see her successful again.
Affleck recently called his 'Town' co-star Blake Lively gorgeous and fabulous.
