Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck: Actress Says Marriage Wouldn't Have Happened Without Red Sox Victory


If the Boston Red Sox hadn't won the World Series in 2004, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner might never have married.

“If they hadn’t won that year, I don’t think I’d be married with three kids,” Garner told USA Today Wednesday. “Because I think I would have been considered a jinx. Boston fans are pretty serious about superstition. They really think they can control it by what shirt they wear and where they sit -- the whole thing.”

Garner and Affleck married in 2005. She has said that thanks to Affleck, she's now a Red Sox fan, too -- she even recited the team's entire starting lineup on "The Jay Leno Show" in 2009. The couple have three children together.
