May 19 (UPI) -- Ben Affleck finally made it into the venerable "Five-Timers Club" when he hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the fifth time this weekend. When the 40-year-old actor discussed his memorable year as the director of award-winning film, "Argo," he asked Jennifer Garner, his wife of eight years, to help him explain his awkward "marriage is work" Oscars speech.

During his opening monologue Saturday night, Garner appeared on stage to jokingly reprimand Affleck for his poor choice of words.

"I'm not sure why you had to share it live to a billion people," Garner said.

"I would have said, 'Thank you to my wife, our marriage is a gift!'" she added.

While picking up his Academy Award for Best Picture in February, Affleck called his marriage to Garner "work."

"I want to thank my wife who I don't usually associate with Iran. I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It's good. It is work but it's the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work with," Affleck said.
