Jennifer Garner Comes To Ben’s Defense

Jennifer Garner Comes To Ben's Defense

Watch what you say about Ben Affleck! Director Kevin Smith says that Ben’s protective wife Jennifer Garner threatened to “kick his a**” after he poked fun at the State of Play star.

Kevin, who worked with Jen on the 2006 flick, Catch & Release, told a crowd at Carnegie Hall this week how the mom-of-two came to her husband’s defense.

“Jennifer does not share the same sense of humor as me – she did not like my jokes. I was picking on 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.”

Kevin insists he’s actually a saint compared to Ben when it comes to telling jokes. Describing the actor as “one of the most intelligent people on the planet” he goes on to say, “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.’”

Jen and Ben, who are parents to daughters Violet, 3, and Seraphina, 5 months, will be celebrating their 4th wedding anniversary later this month.

    Don’t screw with your guy’s relationship with his friends. Guys show affection by being comfortable enough to give each other shit, and nobody wants to hang out with the chick who doesn’t get it.

    Sounds like Jen doesn’t have a sense of humor.

    I think she has a sense of humor. It’s just that when someone is constanly picking on your husband (even if that are jokes) the first few times it’s funny but then it starts to get annoying. And that was it for her, I think.

    Kevin Smith sounds like one of those typical, unfunny, obnoxious sleazeballs that won’t ever shut up. I can totally see that he would get on Jennifer’s nerves. If you have to proclaim that someone else’s jokes are dirtier than yours to defend yourself….yeah.
