Jennifer Garner has revealed that her husband Ben Affleck encouraged her to star in the AIDS drama Dallas Buyers Club.

The mother-of-three told Good Morning America that she was reluctant to take on the role as it would mean spending time away from their children.

Garner said: “At the end of Alias I had my first child and so I’ve worked less with each baby and this movie, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to do it. I’m comfortable at home. I like being at home.

“My husband, Ben, really encouraged me to do it. He really said, ‘It’s time’.”

Garner plays a doctor in the film which also stars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto.

Dallas Buyers Club is due for release in February 2014.
