Jennifer Garner says it’s “conscious decision” to not attend Hollywood events with husband Ben Affleck as she doesn’t solely want to be known as his wife.
She explained: “It’s a very conscious decision. Sometimes it’s a pain because my heels are so high and it would be nice to have his arm … and he’s such a great date! But it can be too much. I think especially for women, they can really lose their identity and just become ‘wife of’.”
The couple – who have three children together, Violet, seven, Seraphina four, and 17-month-old son Samuel – met on the set of 2003 film ‘Daredevil’, but the 41-year-old beauty has no interest in starring alongside her spouse again because she feels people are “sick” of seeing them in the media.
She added to the new issue of Allure magazine: “Really, you don’t want to see a couple onscreen. People see paparazzi shots of us together all the time. There’s no mystery … People are sick of us.”
It appears Ben, 40, has learned his lesson about co-starring with his lady loves after receiving negative reviews for his movies with ex-fianc?e Jennifer Lopez, including ‘Gigli’ and ‘Jersey Girl’.
