    Jennifer Garner is making it very clear that her marriage to Ben Affleck is perfectly fine.

    Some questioned whether the Hollywood couple were having some rocky times because of Affleck's acceptance speech at the Oscars, where he stated, "I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It's good. It is work, but the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work with."

    But Jen wasn't worried, even if her loved ones were. "I know,'" Garner told The Telegraph about people interpreting Ben's speech a certain way. "I had a friend call and say, 'Are you OK?'"

    "I know Ben, I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world," she continued. "I think he was saying, 'Look, what we have is really real and I value it above all and I'm in it with you and I know you are in it with me.' That's the way I took it."

    The actress and mother of three added, "Poor guy. It's so horrible to put yourself out there. He didn't have to worry about it from my point of view."

    And really, her point of view is the only one that matters.
