Ben Affleck`s Oscars speech was a compliment, says Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck`s Oscars speech was a compliment, says Jennifer Garner London: Actress Jennifer Garner has come to her husband Ben Affleck`s defence and said she was touched by the deeply personal acceptance speech he gave at the Oscars.

The actor-director Affleck`s Oscar acceptance speech left viewers confused about the state of their marriage, but the 40-year-old actress said she felt honoured by what he said, reported Contactmusic.

"I had a friend call and say, `Are you Ok?` I know Ben, I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world. I think he was saying, `Look, what we have is really real and I value it above all and I`m in it with you and I know you are in it with me.`

"That`s the way I took it... Poor guy. It`s so horrible to put yourself out there - he didn`t have to worry about it from my point of view," she said.

While accepting the Oscar for Best Picture for ‘Argo’ at the Oscars in February, Affleck had thanked his wife of seven years for "working on our marriage for 10 Christmases," and had said, "It is work, but it`s the best kind of work, and there`s no one I`d rather work with."
