Garner, who has been dying to get her acting career back on track, spent years raising their three children while her hubby was busy working on blockbuster hits such as his Oscar-award winning directorial film, Argo.
And now that Jen has signed up to star in several upcoming flicks, she wants to make sure she doesn’t have to depend on the nannies to take care of the kids, because she knows that once she starts working, Ben will do anything but stay at home.
The 41-year old has allegedly gotten into many arguments with his wife over who gets to do what and when — Jennifer argued her case that both of them are actors and Ben would have to accept the fact that she would eventually want to get back doing what she loves to do.
The amount of movies I can recall Jennifer being in are very limited. Umm, let’s see… 13 Going on 30 and Juno are the only ones that jump out on top of my head — nevertheless, these are movies she filmed years and years ago.
I totally understand where she’s coming from but getting Ben to agree on her idea of having him be a stay-at-home dad while she works on her movies is going to be the tricky part.
According to STAR magazine, Jennifer Garner is dropping her nannies from the scene while she’s working on her films, in hopes that them being gone will make Ben realize he’ll have no other choice but to stay in his home while his wife is on set.
A source said: “She doesn’t think Ben will cheat. She just fears that he could have a weak moment when she’s gone and will go out on the town and get into trouble.”
Pretty dumb idea because Ben Affleck can easily hire himself new nannies and pretend as if he was at home when he’s really doing something else.
The actor is currently preparing to get himself in shape for his upcoming role as Batman in the Superman sequel — the first scenes are planned to be shot in Toronto, Canada so that alone will mean daddy won’t be around for a long time.
Sources say the movie is being filmed early next year which would give Ben enough time to just chillax, spend time with his kids and enjoy life as opposed to trying to fit in another project or wasting his time at clubs with his pals.
Jennifer Garner, you better keep him in check!
