Today's Evil Beet Gossip



“Jennifer does not share the same sense of humor as me — she did not like my jokes.  I was picking on [Jen’s husband] Ben Affleck and 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.  I remember talking to Ben and being like, ‘I know your lady is not finding me amusing. Ben, I’ve known you for years, and you are far sicker than I am!’ His jokes are way dirtier than mine. He’s made jokes to me, and I’ve been like, ‘Ben, you need to go to church.’”

Director Kevin Smith talking about the humorless Jennifer Garner and his experiences with her on the set of Catch and Release in 2006.  As an aside, Smith is currently directing A Couple of Dicks — sounds appropriate.

  • *giggles at your last line* jen garner comes off super boring to me so i’m not surprised. so when are they separating?

  • Alright I will be the first to say that I’m a huge fan of smith’s, maybe even to a stalker level… but once again he is hilarious.

    • Love him too. I’m a little worried about his weight but man, he’s so funny. Dogma is my favourite movie.

      Jennifer seems like the type of girl who’d actually buy Legally Blonde on DVD and watch it more than once.

      • She might even buy the remake with the twins.. O golly! No but i’ve met Kevin a couple of times and we have a mutual friend and he is the nicest, kindest, funniest person I know.

        For the record, I don’t doubt Jen Garner is a nice person though.

  • Kind of off topic but beet you should make an app for evilbeet on iPhones.
    It would be much appreciated :D by me at least

  • Kevin’s pretty funny and the incident he’s talking about was waaay before Catch and Release. This was in the Daredevil days when Jen Garner wouldn’t admit she had a thing for Ben.

  • Love, love, love Kevin Smith. You would think Jennifer Garner would have taken into consideration the fact that these two guys knew each other for years.

    Maybe she never saw any of his movies? Or, maybe she never saw “An Evening With Kevin Smith”. If she had she would have realized the guy even makes jokes about himself.


    • I LOVE Kevin Smith.

      I even watched all three of the “Evening with Kevin smith”

      Some of the funniest hours on film ever!

      • Me, too.

        We have “Evening” nights at least twice a year. His stories don’t get old at all. Although, I am surprised that his wife hasn’t put her foot down and asked him to stop talking about their sex life. Ha!!

  • I met Kevin in Orlando a few years ago. He is the same person you see on tv. He’s awesome and so down to earth.

  • I adore the whole View Askew crew…. Jay seemed to mellow out over the years, and then he went and flashed wang in Zack and Miri. I was pretty impressed :)

  • I was so hoping I would get called for daily work on Degrassi when he was directing. Unfortunately I worked before and after he was there. My bad luck.

  • God, this guy is a total douche. His sense of humour bases on shit on dicks, and is clearly appropriate for idiots who wouldn’t be able to find their own ass in the dark. Girly sense of humour, please. The fat one must have some women issues, which I don’t find surprising at all.
