Jennifer Garner misses her friends when she is away on movie shoots with husband Ben Affleck - because she can't survive without a girlie gossip with her pals.
The actress, who has two daughters with the Hollywood star, often travels with her partner when he has to film on location.
But Garner is adamant she finds it easier to deal with her husband's absence than her separation from her female friends.
She tells W magazine, "I miss my girlfriends! That's the hardest thing about being on location when it's not for your own project. When it's for you, you're on set with everybody you know, but if not, it's lonely. I can live with Ben working crazy hours. But I can't live without girlfriends... It's fine if he's not there; I just need someone to b**ch about it to."
