Affleck Not Looking To Work With Garner

BEN AFFLECK doubts he will ever work with his actress wife JENNIFER GARNER on screen - because he's still haunted by the box office failure that was GIGLI.
The Daredevil star filmed the romantic comedy with Jennifer Lopez, who he began dating after meeting her on set in 2002.
The movie was released a year later (03), but the media circus that surrounded their whirlwind romance and subsequent engagement did nothing to boost Gigli's profile and the film was savaged by critics.
Affleck and Lopez split in 2004, shortly before they were due to wed - but the movie experience was so bad, it has put the actor/director off the idea of teaming up on the big screen with Garner, his wife of five years.
He tells Us Weekly magazine, "Jen is a great actress. I would be profoundly lucky to work with her. But something tells me that people don't want to see real-life couples together at the movies."
