I am the CEO of my family: Jennifer Garner

London: Jennifer Garner is the "chief executive officer (CEO)" of her household who performs all the administrative tasks.

The 42-year-old actress said she takes it upon herself to organise the differing schedules of her husband, Oscar-winning actor Ben Affleck, and their three kids, reported Contactmusic.

"There's nothing like brain surgery about it - it's all logistics and schedules and remembering to pack lunches, and who has a karate class after school, and thinking about what food we already have in the refrigerator, and what I need to buy more of to cook dinner.

"I was writing cheques this morning to various people who have done things around the house and I started to laugh because I suddenly thought, 'I bet Ben doesn't even know this person's last name, let alone how much we pay them.' But that's how we divide the jobs," she said.

The 'Dallas Buyers Club' star admits it is a juggle to maintain her career, support her husband's career and take care of the household.

"There's always a ball up in the air and you just hope you manage to get your hand out to catch that ball before it splats to the ground.

"I'm constantly thinking, 'OK, I have this kid starting pre-school and that kid starting kindergarten this fall so I need to be home for that chunk of time, and my husband is going to be doing this at that time, so I need to be home then'," she added.
