Jennifer Garner wants husband Ben Affleck to trade the director’s chair for the high chair,” begins a piece from Star, which claims the actress “is eager to get back to work while Ben tends to the couple’s three children.”

A purported “insider” tells the mag, “Jennifer has played homemaker while Ben has been the toast of the town,” alleging that Garner had “mixed feelings” about Affleck’s Oscar win for Argo.

“She is so proud of Ben, but she used to have a red-hot career, and she wants it back,” says the so-called “friend.”


Not at all.

In fact, Garner recently told Allure that being a mother is the most important thing to her in the world, and that whatever Affleck decides to do in his professional life, “I’m along for the ride.”

And it’s not as if the star has given up working to be a full-time mom.

Garner recently completed The Dallas Buyers Club, and has three additional films set for 2014.

In any case, Gossip Cop checked in with a family insider, who tells us the mag’s story is simply “not accurate.”
