Having snagged his first Best Picture Oscar, Ben Affleck is taking advantage of the rare down time by chilling at home with his wife, Jennifer Garner. "Luckily, I've been able to just enjoy my good fortune the last couple of weeks, just sit back and take it in, not do anything, eat ice cream on the couch," Affleck told Us Weekly at a recent fundraiser for Stuart House, a rape crisis center. "It's been a nice time, hanging out with my wife, that sort of thing, and we're enjoying it."
He's also happy to invest his energy in non-Hollywood pursuits. "Now, when I go out and spend my time at events I can choose events like this that have some cause, some benefit other than trying to go after something for my movie," he added." Nothing is wrong with that but it's also important to balance that with this type of activity that feels good."
