Ben Affleck Bought J. Lo A Rolls-Royce And Jennifer Garner Gets…A Gift From CVS?

Gifting fail! Ben doesn’t think his wife needs to be fooled by rocks that he’s got, but maybe he should try a little harder with Christmas presents!

Ben Affleck is smart, handsome, successful, and a doting dad, so you would think as Jennifer Garner’s husband, he has the whole package, right? Except for one thing. He seems to think shopping for his wife’s Christmas presents at CVS is not a bad idea…

Ben went on Ellen to promote The Company Men Nov. 30, and with the holiday shopping season officially underway, the duo got to talking about how gift buying goes in the Affleck-Garner household. Hint: Jennifer shops, Ben cheers.

“It’s a bit of a 50s thing I guess. Because my wife is so capable and because I’m less so, she does a lot of that work and I kind of root her on. I’m encouraging,” the 38-year-old actor/director admitted to Ellen.

While Ben presented past fiancée Jennifer Lopez with a Rolls-Royce on her birthday, he takes a different approach with his wife of five years.

“I spend the whole time fretting about that and being nervous and hoping she likes that. And then I end up at like CVS on the 24th being like, ‘maybe she’d like a little Godzilla that goes around,'” he told Ellen.

Seriously, Ben? We know you two are a low-key couple, but we think Jennifer would maybe appreciate something that sparkles and not something that roars at you!

Why is Affleck buying a fancy car for J.Lo.? He has a wife but seems he has no life with Jennifer. I felt for her when he said he would stop by on CVS for a gift for his wife,on Oprah. I thought what a jerk he is…
