Ben Affleck may be an acclaimed director, but he has trouble with some domestic duties – he says he’s terrible at buying gifts, so he always leaves the Christmas shopping to his wife, Jennifer Garner.
“My wife is so capable and because I’m less so, she does a lot of that work, and I kind of root her on. I’m encouraging,” Affleck said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. But what about buying gifts for Jen?
“It takes her as much energy and effort to buy like the 20 gifts we’re going to buy other people, as it does to buy her gift,” Affleck said. “I spend the whole time, fretting about that and being nervous and hoping she likes that. And then I end up at like CVS on the 24th being like, ‘Maybe she’d like a little Godzilla that goes around.’”
Somebody get Ben a personal shopper to handle Jen’s gift, stat. We’re guessing that little Godzilla gift won’t do, Ben! (Us Magazine)
