Los Angeles: Actor-director Ben Affleck is a very supportive husband to wife Jennifer Garner and the actress says the Batman star is always encouraging her to work.
Garner and Affleck, who got married in 2005, have three children ? daughters Violet, 8, and Seraphina, 5, and son Samuel, 2.
The actress, 42, says the birth of her children changed her priorities but her husband keeps telling her that she should work as it is a part of who she is, reportedly.
"My ambition shifted when I had kids in a way that I didn?t anticipate. I became more ambitious for my life as a whole, and for that kind of health and happiness of the overall family unit. And that very much includes my husband and very much includes me," Garner told the magazine.
"My husband is always the one saying to me, 'You have to work, you have to work. This is part of who you are. We'll figure it out'. That's powerful, when your partner has that serious mantra," the actress said.
Affleck is currently garnering praise for his role of an out of work journalist whose wife disappears on their fifth anniversary, leaving him as the prime suspect. While Garner stars in 'Men, Women & Children'.
