Vomiting is the worst whether it’s today’s lunch or those words you didn’t intend to say. And sometimes when you feel it coming, there’s nothing you can do to stop it from hitting a crowd of unexpected listeners.
While everyone in the audience left shocked by what came out of his mouth, it was wife, Jennifer Garner who was hit hardest.
Take a look at these photos to get a better idea of how it all went down:
Even from the beginning of his acceptance speech, you can see Ben is red in the face and sweaty. Sure signs some kind of vomit is coming on.
Here you see Jen graciously accepting her thanks as third in line on Ben’s list. It goes Canada, friends in Iran AND THEN Jen.
“I don’t usually associate my wife with Iran.” Maybe this isn’t as much of a joke as Ben is trying to play it off as. He does describe his friends in Iran as, “Living in terrible circumstances.”
Maybe it’s just a coincidence or maybe he relates to them on some subconscious, domestic level..
Okay, even with a rocky start, you can tell Jen still has high hopes. If those eyes don’t say, “I’m so proud of you.” I don’t know what does. This is the face of a woman who’s about to get appreciated by an Oscar winner.
And here we see her face reacting to the statement that their marriage is work.
Let’s switch to a shot of Ben realizing he hadn’t said what every proud wife is waiting to hear: He’s easily two shades redder. I think someone knows he’ll be sleeping on the couch for a while.
And finally, with big, open arms, he closes the thank you portion for Jen with, “It’s the best kind of work and I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else.” Because how else do you recover from a comment like that?
There may have been some issues in Ben and Jen’s marriage that left the Oscar winner feeling uneasy that night but Ben has denied that his speech meant there was anything wrong with their marriage.
It seems like the only thing to do after a bad word vomit like that is to clean up as much as you can and wait for that awful smell to fade. The sooner it does, the sooner everyone can forget it ever happened.
