Ben Affleck enjoys quieter life after Oscars

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Ben Affleck is enjoying doing nothing now awards season is over. The Argo actor/director was the toast of the awards season - picking up wins at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTAs - but he is now reveling in the quieter life with wife Jennifer Garner now that the Oscars are over. He told E! News: "I've been able to really just enjoy my good fortune in the last couple of weeks and sit back and kind of just take it in and not do anything, just eat ice cream on the couch. It's been a really nice time to hang out with my wife and that sort of thing, so we're just enjoying it." The 40-year-old star - who has three children with Jennifer, daughters Violet, seven, and Seraphina, four, and 12-month-old son Samuel - explained that work on the Best Picture-winning film didn't end when the cameras stopped rolling because of the manic awards season, but life has now returned to normal. He said: "There's a good period of time that I see as an extension of the movie and the work that you put into the movie continues through that time and it's great in a lot of different ways. And then it ends."

    I took a flight on Air Canada recently, or as Ben Affleck calls it, American Airlines.

    So now Ben can be the stay-at-home dad and Jennifer can now film a movie or two! That’s a good compromise, no?

    Was glad when he was nominated and thrilled when he won. Argo is a great film. Relax with the family for a bit then comes the hunt for a film to top this one. Good luck
