Ben Affleck Taking On Role Of Mr. Mom

Ben Affleck is getting ready for some time at home with his daughters.

Ben has had a busy year with promoting his films "The Town" and "The Company Men", along with filming another.  The buys dad is now wrapping up his obligations so that wife Jennifer Garner can go off to work while he stays home with their girls, Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 23 months.  "My wife's going to a movie and then it's going to be just pure Mr. Mom time!" 

At the premiere of his new movie "The Company Men", Ben explained that his interview with Ellen DeGeneres last week, where he joked that he'd have to buy Jennifer's Christmas gift on the 24th at CVS, made him sound bad.  "It sounded bad, I know! When I watched it I was like, 'I don't come off very well here.' But I have that experience quite a bit. Basically, my wife is very in-depth with all this stuff, really sharp, very thoughtful, very thorough. And so for me, I get kind of panicked, I put things off and I just don't know what to get so just buying her a present — I put more work into that than she does into buying fifteen!"

Somehow I think he'll do just fine.
