After picking up a trophy for Best Picture with Argo at the Oscars last month, Ben Affleck isn’t busting his ass on his next project or anything. Instead, he’s sitting on it, eating ice cream on his couch and hanging out with his wife/BFF/biggest fan Jennifer Garner. Sounds like a pretty good life, eh?
From US Weekly:
Affleck explained to Us Weekly that he’s been reluctant to get out of sweats post-Oscars. “Luckily, I’ve been able to just enjoy my good fortune the last couple of weeks, just sit back and take it in, not do anything, eat ice cream on the couch,” the actor, director and producer, 40, said. “It’s been a nice time, hanging out with my wife, that sort of thing, and we’re enjoying it.”
I just love these two together. I don’t give a shit about them apart, and I don’t even care about their acting/directing/whatever work, but they’re just so genuinely into each other even after all these years that I can’t bring myself to say anything bad about them. Plus, who doesn’t like ice cream and couches? Find me someone, I dare you.
Helen Mirren is a film legend, so she could show up at an awards show in a paper bag with a mop end for a wig and old KFC buckets for shoes and no one could say shit because she’s doing her and has earned the right to do so. She didn’t quite go that far at last night’s BAFTAs in London, but she did take a popular hair trend to the pensioner set by dyeing her hair a lovely shade of bubblegum pink, an idea she got from… an unlikely source, shall we say.
“I saw it on America’s Next Top Model, so I decided to have a go.”
First of all, I love that Helen Mirren watches America’s Next Top Model – I didn’t realise anyone still did. Second of all, I love that she has such a buck wild spirit that she didn’t think twice about heading to Katy Perry town with her locks. And while it’s a bit unusual, it certainly doesn’t look bad. I wish I could get away with pink hair, but it’s just not happening. Helen’s move was especially risky considering the BAFTAs are full of British people who aren’t really into bullshit and really are into class, fanciness and sexy accents.
In any case, the BAFTAs red carpet was chock full of stars, from Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Ben Affleck to Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Chastain and more. Check out a gallery from last night’s red carpet below:
Ben Affleck really loves Jennifer Garner. Like, really loves her. They’ve been married since 2005 and unlike many Hollywood relationships, they’re not constantly in the press over cheating claims and have seemingly gotten over any issues privately and with grace. They have three adorable kids and basically just seem like a great couple, despite Garner’s tendencies to overshare about her husband’s super sperm and whatnot. Anyway, with all this love in the air, it’s only natural that Ben would gush about his wife at every available opportunity, most recently after his Directors Guild Award win on Saturday night for his latest project, Argo.
It was a celebratory evening for Affleck – and it was also date night with his doting wife, Jennifer Garner, by his side (and often with her hand on his back).
“I have to just thank my wife for being the best person in the world. I love you,” Affleck, 40, told the audience as he accepted the award for outstanding directorial achievement for Argo. “I don’t need to look at the teleprompter to know why I want to thank you. I want to thank you because I love you.”
He added: “I want our daughters to break boundaries.”
Aw, isn’t that sweet? And speaking of sweet, THESE KIDS:
Let’s just compare this photo up here ^^ to this photo right here:
Because really, if we’re comparing photo #1 to photo #2, there’s a big, big difference. Jennifer Garner‘s lips are generally full as it is, but in the top picture, they’re, like, ready to burst open. Kind of freaky, if you ask me.
Thoughts? Fake lips or no fake lips?
No, but seriously: good for them, I suppose. I know I hate on Ben Affleck a lot, and that’s because he strikes me as a bargain basement discount power tool with an inflated me-complex, and I think Jennifer Garner‘s way too sweet and patient for him, but hey. It’s not my marriage, and it’s apparent that these two get along in some sort of way, because girlfriend just keeps popping out little girls and they ain’t divorced yet.
Either way, nothing can get me down today – I painted my living room a very zen green yesterday and Lowe’s is on its way today to install my new carpet, so I suppose I’m seeing everything through rose-colored glasses. Even if we did happen to find out that these guys were having a baby now because Jennifer Lopez is ten different kinds of single, I’m sure I’d find a way to put a positive spin on that, too.
Congratulations on the pregnancy, guys, and I hope this little darling is as sweet and adorable as your other two!
Ben Affleck was photographed out in Los Angeles with his wifey yesterday and yo! People are immediately jumping to the conclusion that the mark is a result of the Blake Lively nudes being released.
People have been saying for awhile that there’s a chance Ben and Blake got their swerve on while filming The Town, and now that those nudes are floating around everywhere and Blake’s totally sporting the same fake tatts in them that she did in the movie, it makes even more sense. Yeah, her rep claims the photos are fake, but a lot of reps are fake, too. If you asked me, I’d say those pictures are the real deal.
Here’s what I wanna know: Did Jennifer Garner lay that thing on him? Because if so, that is tight! I knew she used to do a lot of her own stunts back in her Alias days, but punching her man in the eye for boning the town floozy while he was on location? That’s gangster.
So I’m pretty obsessed with these photos of Violet Affleck leaving the Santa Monica library with her famous mom yesterday because this little gremlin reminds me of someone very special: Me.
The glasses, the whole “sticking library books in her mouth” thing, the spastic arm and leg movements mid-walk. Yeah, all of that looks very familiar to this lady over here and honestly, God bless her. She’s probably going to grow up to be a wonderful woman.
But all of that self-centered shit aside, doesn’t she remind you of one of Amy Poehler’s best SNL characters ever? Jennifer Garner is totally the best mom in the world.
