No joint projects for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck

09/21/2007 at 11:39 PM ET
Ben Affleck‘s directorial debut Gone Baby Gone hits theaters next month and features brother and expectant dad Casey Affleck, but wife Jennifer Garner isn’t in it and won’t be in any of his future projects either. Why? Someone needs to stay home for Violet, 21 months, and their future children.
I don’t think I’d ever star in a movie Ben directed; somebody has to raise the kids!

Kids? ;)

Never say never Jennifer! If all the elements fell into place…. This is one profession where parents can have their children close by (in most cases). I think it would be a real buzz for Hollywood. Time will tell. Love ‘em no matter.

A wise move. Just look what happened with J-Lo and Marc’s movie. Big Fat Bomb.

AFTER HEARING JEN ON AUSTRALIAN RADIO SHOW
SAYING THAT SHE WILL NEVER WORK WILL MATT, CASEY OR BEN IN A MOVIE AS A LOVE INTEREST..

SINCE BEN IS IN L.A DOING A MOVIE AND JEN IS GOING TO NEW YORK TO DO A PLAY IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHO LOOKS AFTER VIOLET?

Unfortunately this film isn’t being released over here in the UK, at least not for a long time, because of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
(Don’t know if the news has spread over to the US. Maddie is 4 years old and was kidnapped while on holiday in Portugal about 4 months ago. The police think she is dead but have no real evidence.)
The spooky thing is that the actress in this film is also called Madeleine and bears an uncanny resemblance to Maddie.

I think it is very strange that the flm won’t be out in the UK. By their logic this film shouldn’t be out anywhere in the world because I am sure Maddy isn’t the only child missing in this world. I don’t see the resemblance to the gilr in the movie either.

Anyway, great choice by Jennifer not to work at the same time as Ben.

Good choice! We don’t want another Gigli on our hands.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
