Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Give Mutual Praise During Rare Joint Red Carpet Appearance
The couple both wore black, with Jennifer wearing a Calvin Klein midi-dress and Ben wearing a two-piece suit.
The actress was on hand to support her director husband who was being honored at the gala alongside Tony Blair, Austin Hearst, and TJ Maxx. Garner is also the charity’s Artist Ambassador and joined the board of trustees earlier this year.
During his acceptance speech, Affleck insisted that Garner, who does U.S. based work for Save the Children, is not only a superior philanthropist—she also takes on “the lion’s share of responsibilities” when it comes to the couple’s home life.
Affleck revealed to the Associated Press.
Garner spoke of how the couple divides their time for philanthropy.
“He works on Eastern Congo Initiative, and I work on the U.S. programs for Save the Children, and within that, I really work on getting kids started on the right foot from birth to 5, helping families get their kids up and ready for school and healthy,” she said, adding: “We don’t scatter our energy around.”
