NEW YORK, April 14 (UPI) -- Actress Jennifer Garner says her husband, fellow actor Ben Affleck, gets a little worked up at his 8-year-old daughter Violet's basketball games.

Garner said that while she's supportive of the children on both teams in the competition, her husband has more of a thirst for victory.

"I clap for everyone who makes a shot on either team," she said, "because I feel like, good shot, great job. Meanwhile, he's freaking out and I'm constantly like, 'stop it!' "

"You know, he’ll be saying, 'she's open! Do you see she's open?!'" Garner said of her husband. "It's like, 'Ben, they're eight. You're yelling at an 8-year-old little girl. She will see that Violet is open and she will get the ball to her when it’s appropriate.' "

Garner's latest film, Draft Day, was just released in theaters. Watch her and co-star Kevin Costner talk about the football film below:
