Jennifer Garner - Jennifer Garner: 'Ben Affleck's Oscars Speech Was A Compliment'

Jennifer Garner was touched by the deeply personal acceptance speech her husband Ben Affleck gave at the Oscars in February (13), calling it the "hugest, warmest compliment in the world" despite the gossip it fuelled.

Affleck sparked speculation about trouble in their relationship when he thanked his wife for "working on our marriage for 10 Christmases" after his movie Argo was named Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

He added, "It is work but the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work with."

Garner reveals Affleck's tribute prompted concern from pals who misinterpreted his meaning, but the actress is adamant she felt honoured by what he said.

She tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "I had a friend call and say, 'Are you Ok?' I know Ben, I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world. I think he was saying, 'Look, what we have is really real and I value it above all and I'm in it with you and I know you are in it with me.' That's the way I took it... Poor guy. It's so horrible to put yourself out there - he didn't have to worry about it from my point of view."
