Because the trundling marriage cart of Bennifer 2 is careering down to the messy end of its road, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck both appear to be engaging in that age old game of being 14 and having former friends accuse the other’s piece of being weird and controlling.
A few weeks ago 13 Going on 30 co-star Marc Ruffalo reminded us of a time when Jennifer Garner seemed poised to not star in endlessly terrible films. Marc said he was pretty good buddies with Jennifer Garner back then but when Ben Affleck got serious with Jennifer, Marc was handed a pink slip with the imprint of a butt-chin on it, and that is how it feels to be told ” BYE, BITCH” by Ben Affleck.
At Comic-Con this weekend, Ben’s old friend Kevin Smith who you might remember starred in a movie opposite Jennifer Garner has now got something to say about why he is no longer in the inner circle.
When recently asked why he is no longer nuzzling in Ben’s soft butt chin, Kevin said.
“Great question. I don’t know, because we’re not fucking tight. I have not been [close with him] in decades….That’s old Ben. He’s got a wife that don’t care for me at all [Laughs]. And plus, honestly, he probably don’t care for me at all anymore. He’s a triple-A-list movie star and shit like that. If he’s Jimmy Carter, I’m Billy Carter, to put it in ’70s terms. And I’m not even related and shit.”
Apparently in a 2009 interview Kevin added
“Jennifer does not share the same sense of humor as me — she did not like my jokes. I was picking on Ben Affleck making fun of him because I’ve known him for a really long time — I was talking smack — and Jennifer goes, ‘You know, if you keep saying stuff about him, I’m going to kick your a–.’ And she could — I’ve seen Alias. She has a real girly sense of humor and didn’t understand that I was kidding.”
So basically Jennifer Garner took issue with Kevin Smith talking about the sex things he’d do to Ben Affleck’s butt chin. In Jennifer’s world, whats cute and funny is a video of a tiny little horse riding on the back of a baby hippo to Carpenters songs. And that’s fine.
In fairness to Bennifer though, when Ben Affleck was friends with Kevin Smith he was also making Gigli and dating Jennifer Lopez. Maybe Kevin as a friend was part of a larger picture of questionable life choices.
Like if i were to choose between a life of dating the nightmare that is Jennifer Lopez Inc, gambling with Kevin Smith and making terrible movies for publicity over being married to Jennifer Garner, winning Oscars and having an adorable family, I know which one i’d take. Dimples for all.
