Garner ‘strict with Affleck’

Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner is reportedly “very strict” with Ben Affleck.

The Hollywood stars have been married since 2005 and have three children together. In 2001 Ben attended rehab to overcome a problem with alcohol and Jennifer apparently goes to great lengths to ensure he is never tempted to relapse.

“Jen is very strict. She almost treats him like a child, forcing him to follow rules and regulations,” an insider told National Enquirer.

“She knows he has to be social because of his career, but she keeps it carefully controlled.”

Although Jennifer attended the Academy Awards in February – where her movie Dallas Buyers Club won several Oscars – Ben didn’t join her until the after-parties. Even then he didn’t stay for too long, but he did find the time to pose for photographs with his wife.

“Ben made his rounds but left immediately after. He said that Jen wanted him home early,” the source giggled.

Ben has spoken extensively about how much his family mean to him. In 2012 he admitted Jennifer is more hands on than him when it comes to the children.

“I am not very present in the rest of my life. My wife’s very patient. She does everything,” he told Details magazine.

“If I have time, I try to spend time with the kids, even if just to be a physical presence, the bath, whatever. But my mind’s always going, ‘How are we going to light that shot tomorrow? What’s the master shot for that scene? Is there even going to be a master?’ Just ruminating endlessly. Because for me – I wish it was discipline or being a great artist. But it’s just anxiety.”

He also explained that he is choosier about his work now he is a father, as leaving his loved ones has to be worthwhile.
