Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck Have a Clearly Divided 'Mom-Dad Line'!

Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck Have a Clearly Divided 'Mom-Dad Line'!

Jennifer Garner shows off her gorgeous smile while making an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday evening (April 9) in New York City.

The 41-year-old actress promoted her film Draft Day and chatted about her husband Ben Affleck and their family.

Benjamin is good, he’s great. I get home Friday and he leaves that day for Batman. It’s going to be awful though because he’s been home now for a few months and when he’s really home, he’s so in dad mode and I think he’s going to have a hard time,” Jen said.

“Let’s not overstate things,” Jen said when Jimmy asked if Ben was Mr. Mom. “We are divided down a very mom-dad line. If it has to do with making food, or doing homework or anything that has to do with actually functioning — sorry it’s true — that’s a mom thing. And then coming in just as you’re getting them to bed and picking them up by their heels and swinging them around, that’s a dad thing. Anything fun, that is Ben.”

    She is ridiculously pretty. Looks more like she’s in her late 20s, early 30s.

    I imagine they are a nice family, and they likely have people cleaning and helping wih childcare. If I could afford to have someone clean up after me I sure would do it! But as for dads- well I am sure ben is a great dad, but not all dads are only the fun guy– my husband puts our kids to bed and does everything I do= except cooking and cleaning! But he does equal child caring.

    Ben is so handsome. Jennifer is only slightly pretty when done up. But naturally she isn’t much to look at.

    You should be happy then because you have a better husband. ;)

    Didn’t Affleck slam her during his Argo Oscar acceptance speech? I guess the shoe is on the other foot now, since Jennifers busy herself.

    She looks really pretty in these pictures. Her family is the real deal, nothing fake about them.

    @shutup!: Actually she is quite beautiful however she is probably the only actress out there who doesn’t use her beauty to further her career. She is more of a girl next door type as opposed to a seductress and/or sexpot. Her features are those of a drop-dead diva if she wanted to use them to her advantage. That is whats makes her so appealing to a lot of people, myself included. I would trade places with her in a heartbeat any day. She is amazing and Ben is very fortunate to have her.

    How stupid ***** and slave soul she is!!!!!! Is it a modern, millionaire, having carrier woman?????? She should have stayed in the kitchen instead of starting film making. Is this an epidemic??? First that stupid Kirsten Dunst now this one. Who is the next kitchen slave?

    AGIAN USING BEN AFFLECK TO SELL AND PROMOTE HER MUVIE then again i will make same comment:

    I think this women(JG) complain about paparazzi going in to her private life, but she is always selling her private life , she is a hipocrita and for her to sell and promote her films she has to use Ben Affleck , and talks about him
    She has Ben on her hand , because she has been very intelligent for the eyes of the public she is the perfect “house wife” and a victim of the evil Ben who is
    unfaithful and that is why ben cant leave her because he know that would be a very bad image/publicity and now he is stuck on that marriage.

    Another actress who alters her lips with fillers. Such a dumb trend.

    @ Says:

    @Looselipz: she has no other redeeming feature on her face so overinflating her lips distracts from those unfortunate features..

    she’s the real deal….and so pretty…and a great mom…and she has the handsome ben as a husband…..what a beautiful family!!!

    Amen April! Jen is stunning when she is all done up. The face that she is just an ordinary, great mother is awesome. Ben is very lucky to have such a great mother to his kids.

    Jen and Ben are total equals in the convo dept. They both talk really fast, very informative, and constant stories of things from home. Total match and must never have a dull moment in that household.

    Also, her Mother duties sound familiar to me. My hubby comes in at night for a little wresting, jokes, and nighty night!! I think this is fairly common with families.

    Jen looks cute and I like her hair style right now.

    Does she has botox on her face (lips , foredhead)?

    Celeb Spy Says:

    @Duke: He’s the uptight one and she’s the easy-going one. They balance each other out. Some of the stuff she says about them is cringe-wrothy though (eg. his s p e r m etc.)

    Frida Says:

    I’m sorry Jennifer – I think you’re awesome – but that is completely ridiculous. The notion that mom is the caretaker and dad is the fun one is like something straight from 1950.

    @ Frida sorry but they are old school when it comes to their family and it suits them .
