Garner advises men to 'be sweet'

Jennifer Garner loves to feel "wooed".

The 'Valentine's Day' actress - who has two children, Violet, four, and 13-month-old Seraphina with husband Ben Affleck - insists she doesn't need huge amounts of money to be spent for her spouse to show his love.

She said: " The most important thing guys can do is acknowledge, in some sweet way ... 'I love you.' Just make us feel wooed.

"Write a quick note or pick flowers or pick the grass out of your backyard and show up with it with a sweet smile ... You don't have to spend a lot of money, just be sweet."

Jennifer, 37, recently revealed how she and Ben make sure they spend time together without the children to keep the romance in their marriage alive.

She explained: "You steal the time. You steal a date, you steal a kiss, you steal a whisper. After the kids are asleep you... well, you know. Whatever it is. You slip away for a night."
