Ben Affleck gets help from wife Jennifer Garner for SNL Monologue


Ben Affleck hosted Saturday Night Live for the fifth time last night, but all he got was a lousy t-shirt. And he didn't even get the t-shirt because Bobby Moynihan didn't want to take it off. Also, Steve Martin and the gang had just been on SNL to welcome Justin Timberlake into the Five Timers Club. Ben discussed his infamous Oscar speech in which he called his marriage to Jennifer Garner "hard work.": Jen herself made an appearance to ask why he felt he had to share that with one billion people, and wished he'd called their marriage a "gift." He then launched into a heartfelt speech about how much he loved her, which was going well until she noticed he was reading it off a cue card. It's pretty funny, take a look:
