It is without a doubt amusing to watch Jennifer Garner in interviews. She always seems like the bubbly popular girl in high school who would go out of her way to befriend the class nerd. We can’t wait to see what she does on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, after watching the above expert, in which she struggles to remember how old her son Samuel is and talks about husband Ben Affleck’s “wonder sperm” and his affinity for tea parties with their daughters while he’s half asleep. But if you’re as avid an Alias fan as I am, you will also be a little bit saddened by Jen’s sweet-natured airheadedness in this chat. It looks like Hollywood success and motherhood have erased all remnants of the woman who once saved the world from the Covenant. On the bright side, Butter looks really funny. Just because misery loves company, I’m sharing five ways in which Jen is sadly no Sydney Bristow:
1. Sydney Bristow speaks 25 languages: English, Russian, German, Greek, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Romanian, Hungarian, Hebrew, Uzbek, Arabic, Urdu, Indonesian, Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, Hindi, Vietnamese, Czech and Bulgarian. (According to the Alias Wikia, because I lost count.)
Jen has to take a minute to remember her children’s names. (For the record, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.)
2. Sydney can juggle getting a graduate degree in English Lit with working for a black-ops unit of the CIA.
Jen sometimes forgets where she put Sam down. Read more…
Before we say anything about what everyone else wore, we need to say this … HOLY SH–, CHARLIZE THERON! How does she do it? And by that we mean, how does she look like that? The CinemaCon 2012 Awards Ceremony went down at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last night, and Charlize slinked down the red carpet wearing the sexiest, raciest Dion Lee LBD in the history of all little black dresses. The fact that she wore strappy Giuseppe Zanotti heels didn’t hurt either. Take a bow, Charlize.
Also wearing black at the same event were Jennifer Garner and Michelle Pfeiffer. Jennifer wasn’t quite working her Michael Kors dress, perhaps because it should have been worn with different shoes. The ones she had on looked like bandages and were far too clunky. Michelle defied age in her a sheer-panelled dress that showed off a rocking bod. Our favorite, other than Charlize, would be Chloe Moretz who wore a metallic dark blue Kenzo dress with hidden slant pockets.
Other celebrities who attended included the likes of Josh Hutcherson, Anna Faris and Jeremy Renner, to name a few.
It’s a boy and he already has a name! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner had their third baby earlier this week, on February 27, in Santa Monica. He joins older sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, who is 3. Mom and Dad are having them like clockwork every three years, huh? We couldn’t wait to hear what they would name their first son, and we had a feeling it was going to be something charming and old-world, just like their daughters’ names. We were right. Ben announced on his Facebook page, “We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck.” We also reckon that Ben is rather happy about the gender ratio evening out in the house. Congratulations to all of them. They’re the cutest family in Hollywood!
But here’s some good news for you black-hearted V-day haters: The last time we did a best couples gallery, back in December, one of those couples announced their divorce a few days later. Oh, no! What have we done?!?
Ben Affleck‘s hair tops our list of Things We Hope To Never See in 2012. Sure we know it’s for his role in Argo (which he’s also directing), but couldn’t he at least find a way to make it work? Slick it back or wear a hat or something? The Bieber do doesn’t look good on anyone — including Bieber himself. Violet Affleck, you seem like a smart one – we implore you to steal some scissors and go to Town (LOL, film reference) on your dad’s locks.
Pics of Ben and pregnant wife Jennifer Garner out in Brentwood this weekend, below!
And we’re not done yet. Since yesterday was the last day for trick-or-treating and Halloween costumes, celebrities really outdid themselves. The final few we loved were folks like Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford who cracked us up by getting their ’80s on as members of Mötley Crüe. Eden Wood from Toddlers and Tiaras was big this year with Chrissy Teigen and Fergie dressing up as her. Kelly Ripa outdid herself on Live! With Regis and Kelly along with Nick Lachey. Their first outfit sequence had Kelly dressed up as Eden as well, and Nick as Charlie Sheen. Their second has Kelly as Kim Kardashian and Nick (on stilts) as Kris Humphries on their wedding day. Ouch! The sexiest prize goes to Miranda Kerr who was the hottest ringmaster ever, and we’d like to give a round of applause to the mommies-to-be as well. Beyoncé was the cutest bumblebee in town, while Jennifer Garner was a witch.
Check out the gallery for the final top 10 celebrity Halloween costumes. We hope you had a FAB weekend.
We love how pregnant and officialJennifer Garner looks right now. The actress was spotted in Santa Monica looking like she meant business in a blazer, killer high heels and a fitted skirt with a slit. And a rather large baby bump, of course. We’re used to seeing the trendy celebrity maternity wardrobe, but this is a whole different vibe … and we totally approve.
The only thing better than an excellently-filmed, superbly-acted sex scene? Hugh Jackman’s sex scene with Jennifer Garner in their upcoming political comedy Butter, because it was humiliating. “I did probably one of the most embarrassing things I had to do on a movie set, or funny anyway,” the Real Stealactor told the Huffington Post. Other than star in Scoop, right Hugh? Scoop must be a close runner-up.
“We have an off-screen love scene, Jen and I, and it takes place in the back of a car, you don’t see anything. We had to record it in a car,” Hugh explained. Unfortunately, technical issues required the sound people to record Garner and Jackman separately. As Hugh explains, “And so, we both had to kind of perform our version, in character, of sex while the other one is quiet. And it was impossible not to be laughing your head off while the other person is doing it. That was humiliating… Guys never sound good during sex. It’s impossible to sound good.”Oh please, like 60% of the Earth’s population wouldn’t want to hear that, Hugh. Either way, we bet you still sounded better than Scoop sounded on the big screen. Seriously, that was not a particularly good movie!
Who knew these two were quiet contenders for giving pals Brangelina a run for their money? Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are going to be parents for a third time! No other details have been released except a short confirmation to the Associated Press. Their representatives said that the couple are “thrilled” to have baby number three on the way. Ben and Jenny (hah) are already parents to two daughters — Violet and Seraphina. Will the new addition to their brood make it a happy girly trio? Awww, we don’t know yet, but we’re sending them a big ol’ congratulations.
They came, they saw and they totally didn’t conk. Prince William and Duchess Kate were in L.A for the weekend and amidst their whirl of activities they attended the BAFTA ‘Brits to Watch’ Awards at the Belasco Theatre. Did the Duchess shut it down? Yes, she did. Kate wore an Alexander McQueen gown and Jimmy Choo sandals and clutch and bowled everyone over. Including the celebrities! The royal couple were seen chatting animatedly with the likes of Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner! And each and everyone of them looked completely star struck. Also hilariously, we spotted Nigel Lythgoe lurking behind Prince William as he chatted with Nicole Kidman. Have a look and see if you can spot him in our gallery below!
