Ben Affleck: Jennifer Garner keeps me calm

'Argo' filmmaker Ben Affleck says his wife Jennifer Garner is a calming influence when he gets a feeling of ''terror'' at the beginning of a new project, and she reminds him it always ends up better than he expects. Despite forging an impressive career as an actor and filmmaker - winning multiple awards for his movie 'Argo', while the film itself was awarded Best Picture at the Oscars - the star still gets a feeling of ''terror'' he's going to mess it all up.
