Ben Affleck is a romantic – but he doesn't like to admit it.

Joining his He's Just Not That Into You costars Kevin Connolly, Justin Long, and Bradley Cooper for a chat with Extra, Affleck at first didn't raise his hand when asked who in the group was romantic.

After some ribbing, the actor, 36, finally 'fessed up.

"I'm definitely romantic," he said. "I didn't raise my hand because I didn't want to be the guy who started talking about how romantic he was on TV."

Affleck was distinctly less shy about discussing the text messages he exchanges with wife Jennifer Garner, 36, mom to their daughters Violet, 3, and Seraphina Rose, who was born Jan. 6.

"I correspond with my wife that way," he said, laughing. "She's like, 'Get over here. Pick this s--- up! It's time for you to go get our daughter!' "
