Jennifer Garner does not want to be known as the `wife of` Ben Affleck

Los Angeles: Jennifer Garner was the ever supporting wife as Ben Affleck hit the award circuit for ‘Argo’ but the actress says she avoids attending every Hollywood event with her husband to maintain her separate identity.

The 41-year-old actress, who graces the cover of Allure magazine`s September issue, says she plans her Hollywood outings with her husband to avoid being tagged as the "wife of" Affleck, whose film won the best picture Oscar this February.

"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," Garner says. I think especially for women, they can really lose their identity and just become `wife of`," Garner said.

Another thing that Garner would avoid doing is starring with her actor-director husband though they first met on the set of 2003 film ‘Daredevil’.

"Really, you don`t want to see a couple onscreen," argues Garner. People see paparazzi shots of us together all the time. There`s no mystery ... People are sick of us."

The couple raise three children together -- daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, and son Samuel, 17 months.
