When cameras at the Oscars panned to Jennifer Garner, it looked like she had come to the woke realization that she was wasting a solid 45 hours at a damn awards show when she just as easily could have been at home watching Super Soul Sunday on OWN. Because there wasn’t much else going on at the Oscars except that movie about fish fucking taking home everything, the clip of Jen went viral. She even had fun with it on her Instagram story that managed to still namedrop she’s the face of a credit card company and the next Marnie for a Lena Dunham project. Alas, she’s still getting questions for her viral seconds of fame, and it doesn’t sound like she’s all that amused by it anymore.
People says she showed up on today’s Ellen, and Ellen DeGeneres asked her what in high hail was she thinking to have the same look on her face that I get when I come to the realization in the morning that I ordered and ate three pizzas at 2am. Jen’s a little embarrassed by the attention:
“I can’t even look at it. I can’t. It’s too embarrassing! What is happening? I have no control over this. What am I doing? … We’re standing! I don’t know, what’s wrong with me? … I wish I did [know]. I wish I had a better story about it.”
Further, Jenn had to go and get violent by even making a threat against her viral self:
“I regret, regret, regret. I want to just punch her in the face!
No need to get violent on Oscar night, Jenn! If you’re going to punch yourself in the face over something, you should have at least done it over agreeing to marry Ben Affleck. Or agreeing to appear in Mother’s Day. Or Valentine’s Day. See? There are so many reasons to throw a punch, but a little internet fame ain’t it!
