Ben Affleck received a bit of flack in February when he called his marriage to Jennifer Garner "work" while thanking the actress during his Best Picture acceptance speech for Argo at the 2013 Academy Awards. This weekend, the twosome joined forces on Saturday Night Live to poke fun at the much joked-about Oscars moment.
Host Affleck opened SNL by addressing the buzzed-about incident, arguing that delivering a televised awards show speech was "completely terrifying."
"I thanked my wife while saying the essence of marriage is work...Some uncharitable souls on the Internet took that to mean our marriage is some kind of manual labor," Affleck defended. "That's not it. You define what's important to you by what you dedicate your time to."
Hoping his wife would help bolster his argument, Affleck called Garner to the SNL stage with somewhat disastrous consequences.
