Jennifer Garner says her husband is “spermy,” but #NoDisrespectToBenAffleck. Three days after the 41-year-old actress shared how she uses Kanye West’s hashtag “all the time” when interacting with her husband Ben Affleck, Garner shed even more light on her relationship with the handsome actor — and their dependency on using a rather large number of contraceptives.
For their Friday, Nov. 1, episode, the producers of The Ellen DeGeneres Show resurfaced a clip from Garner’s Sept. 2012 appearance on the show, during which she called her husband, “a wonder sperm kind of guy.” DeGeneres simply followed up the clip by asking, “So?”
Garner, who has three kids with Affleck — Violet, 7, Seraphina, 4, and Samuel, 20 months — unabashedly responded, “Spermy has been, so far, held at bay.” With Jen and Ben’s hectic work schedules — he’s currently filming Gone Girl, she’s promoting Dallas Buyers Club — the actress says having three, young children with the actor is “enough.” The Affleck brood is frequently photographed running errands (picking up groceries, taking the kids to school) in L.A. where they reside. However, the option of expanding their family still remains due to Affleck’s “spermy” nature.
The couple’s solution to the dilemma is simple: “There are 57 kinds of contraceptives used pretty much,” she jokingly revealed. “Everyday?” asked DeGeneres. “Yep, and three of them are under the age of eight,” Garner responded, referring to their kids. “I think we have provided the world with enough.”
Daredevil costars Garner and Affleck started dating in 2004 and wed in 2005. Their marriage became a hot button issue after Affleck gave an incredibly raw and honest speech at the 2013 Academy Awards while accepting the Oscar for Argo. “I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases,” the actor said to his beaming wife. “It is work but the best kind of work and there’s no one I’d rather work with,” Affleck said of marriage.
His words, initially misinterpreted by certain viewers and media outlets, were later addressed by both parties. “I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world,” Garner told The Telegraph. Perhaps that is how Affleck receives “spermy,” too — as a compliment.
