Why Ben Affleck Won’t Film with His Honey

/ September 18, 2010

Though Ben Affleck and Jen Garner make a lovely couple in real life, Affleck said he isn’t willing to bring their natural chemistry on screen.

He told Time magazine that his wife is a great actress, but that their real life relationship would “distract” the audience from on-screen characters.

“I would be profoundly lucky to work with her. But something tells me that people don’t want to see real-life couples together at the movies.”

Sounds like Ben is having flashbacks to the days of filming with former girlfriend JLo on the set of “Gigli.” Their relationship crashed as much as their movie did in the box office.
