Jen Garner's weird travel checklist

Jennifer Garner has joked about the strange hang luggage she took with her while travelling the world with her husband Ben Affleck.

Jennifer and Ben Affleck tied the knot in 2005 and have three children; eight-year-old Violet, five-year-old Seraphina and Samuel, who was born in 2012. That year the family accompanied Ben on the publicity tour for his movie Argo, which meant Jennifer had some unusual hand luggage with her.

"He said, 'I need you to come with me.' So my breast pump and I travelled all over the world with him," Jennifer quipped in an interview for the British edition of Hello! magazine. "It's a question of priorities - Ben is mine as I am his."

The actress admits that home life can be hard, so she uses her prosperous acting career as a refuge from it.

"I respect women who stay at home with their kids, because I know how hard it is to do just that," she said.

"I sometimes think that for me, acting is an escape from how hard it is to run a home."

Yet between the pressures of motherhood, a career, and married life, Jennifer still makes time to socialise with her A-list friends. Jennifer and Ben often get together with actor Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana. Ben and Matt are childhood friends who have worked together in films such as Good Will Hunting and Dogma.

"Ben and Matt are still great friends and, if they're both in residence, they're together at our home or his - they're watching the game on TV and there's beer," she explained.
