Ben Affleck has said he likes that his wife Jennifer Garner chooses interesting films to make and has commended her on balancing their family and her career.

The Gone Girl star, who has three children with Garner, told Hello!: "I like that she picks smart, interesting movies to make, not goofy rom-coms where she shakes her a** and stuff.

"Don't get me wrong, she's got a great a** but I prefer that she's choosing to do more thoughtful films than that."

He added that he is grateful to his wife for balancing their family and a career: "It's a very difficult choice that has to be made and Jen handles it frankly as well as anybody I know."

Affleck continued: "I'm really grateful to her. She says, 'I'm going to have the primary responsibility for the kids, but I'm also going to find a way to do movies at the same time'. I like the way she does that."
