When Garner isn’t whipping up goodies in the kitchen or spending quality time with the kids, you might find her, along with Affleck, catching a Red Sox game on TV or, when they can, live at Fenway Park. Garner happily adopted her husband’s favorite pastime when they exchanged vows. “It’s like a soap opera: You watch three or four in a row and you start to recognize patterns and characters and faces, and suddenly, you’re hooked,” she says.
But for all her resolve to embrace happiness -- in her career, in her charity work, and with her husband and children -- baseball might be the one area where that proves impossible for her.
“Sometimes, I’m a little more psycho about it than Ben is,” she admits. “He is pretty chill. He is always like, ‘It’s a long season.’ And that’s where I go a little crazier than he does. I hate when they’re playing sloppily. I just take it personally! And free agency? It’s just too much heartbreak for one girl.”
