The star couple spoofed Ben’s Oscar acceptance speech.
Ben Affleck was the host of Saturday Night Live this past weekend and he got a chance to publicly explain his Oscar speech comments about his marriage to Jennifer Garner being “work.”
He continued, “We’ve worked together on our marriage. And then some uncharitable souls on the Internet took that to meant our marriage was some kind of manual labor. No, that’s not it. You define what’s important to you by what you dedicate your time to. And my wife knew exactly what I meant,” he said.
He invited her on stage to “disprove the naysayers.” A smiling Jen appeared onstage.
“Tell the people what I meant by marriage is work,” he asked her.
“It’s a way we talk privately about how committed we are to our marriage,” she explained, adding, “Not sure why you had to share that live to a billion people, but …”
She said, “I would have said thank you to my wife. Our marriage is a GIFT!”
And went on to say, “If we’re going to be completely honest here, why don’t we mention who does all of the work?”
“That’s too inside,” said Ben. “The people don’t want to hear that!”
He then said he wanted to tell how how he “wished” he had ended the Oscar speech.
He turned to her and said, “I couldn’t do any of the things I do without your support. You’re my angel, my life and my world.”
She replied, “You’re reading that.”
Cut to a cue card. “Yeah, it’s true. But I love you,” he said.
“Thank you. You’re a lot of work,” she replied.
