Ben Affleck's Oscar Speech

Can He Recover

... At Home??

2/25/2013 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

022513_ben_affleck_oscars_v2_launchBen Affleck could probably use a ladder to get out of that hole he dug himself into at the Oscars last night when he called out the imperfections in his marriage to Jennifer Garner during his "Argo" victory speech. 

You could hear the nervous laughter from the crowd when Affleck -- who was racing through his speech -- said, "I want to thank my wife ... for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases."

He continued, "It's good ... it IS work, but it's the best kind of work ... and there's no one I'd rather work with."

We respect his honesty ... and Garner was smiling when the camera cut to her ... but how do you think the comment went over at home, behind closed doors?

We gotta ask ...

loe    

can be interpreted differently..since all relationships need to be worked on. No one is perfect.. couples are easy to break up because of their works, differences. Ben was right about it so nothing to worry about.

Much ado about nothing. If that's the worst thing a couple says about each other, they're okay.

I don't think that's what he meant at all. I thought it was heartfelt & sweet. He was so nervous. Also, real marriages ARE constant work, to keep them fresh, fun & loving. Thinking you guys are WAY off the mark here. BTW, loved all the well deserved "digs" in that acceptance speech by both men at the Academy.

Marriage and raising a family is work - what's the big deal. Everyone knows she keeps the family running - he's admitted on talk shows.

So I guess no one on the tmz staff remembers Sandra Bullok's acceptance speech...? Or is married for that matter? It is work. Good work, if you're trying.

Sounds like he's keeping it real to me. If he sat up there and talked about how perfect his marriage was, I'd have more suspicion that he had something to hide.
