Ben Affleck: my wife meant to say I have ‘a wonder johnson,’ not ‘wonder sperm’

Here are some photos of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, posing separately natch, at the Argo premiere in LA last night. We do have a supercute photo of them kissing before they hit the red carpet, though. That’s below! Garner is smoking hot in a floor length red Monique Lhuillier gown with a sweetheart neckline. Her hair and makeup are perfection and I love her diamond accessories. She’s so gorgeous when she’s made up. My only minor complaint is that the dress could have been tailored a little more for her. Red Carpet Fashion Awards has a photo of it on the runway and there’s a hot red belt that goes with it, which may have made it look more polished. That’s just me nitpicking. As for Ben, he looks good, and like he’s on his way to becoming a seasoned director. I could gush over him a little.

While he’s doing the interview circuit, Ben is fielding a lot of questions about his wife Jennifer’s Garner’s comment on Ellen that he has “wonder sperm,” and can just look at her and get her pregnant. We previously saw an hilarious clip from Access Hollywood of Ben being blindsided by the “wonder sperm” question. He got flustered and it was obvious that his wife hadn’t told him ahead of time that she said that. In an new appearance on The Tonight Show, Ben told the whole wonder sperm story, and admitted that he had no idea about his wife’s comment until he hit the press circuit and was asked about it repeatedly. He’s so animated and funny in the clip below. The fangirl in me is excited to see Ben back in full force. He really does it for me. (Maybe not as much as Matt Damon, but he’s getting there.) Here’s a clip followed by some of what he said.

“What she meant was ‘wonder member,'” Ben said sheepishly. The Argo actor/director continued to drive the point, saying, “I have a ‘wonder piece’ — a ‘wonder johnson’ … I’m trying to do it on TV. You know what I mean? It’s a PG [show].”

Jennifer made the comments during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last month. The comments circulated so quickly that they made it back to Ben before his wife called tell him about the gaffe.

Ben says that he was thrown off guard when numerous entertainment journalists inquired about his “wonder sperm” until he got home and Jennifer told him about her comments.

I just want to say that Jay Leno is a tool. Jay didn’t even know where Garner made that comment. He thought she made it in an article. Garner said that wonder sperm thing on Ellen, there are plenty of clips of it.

Anyway, hot funny Ben is here to stay, and he’s put the past behind him. Fingers crossed that Argo is a critical and box office hit. Ben has been busting his butt to promote it.

Here’s that cute photo of Ben and Jen that I mentioned.

Also Bryan Cranston! Hey there Mr. White. He looks so good.

    Oh look: its a woman’s face that MOVES when talking and showing emotion…and shows some life with laugh lines. How refreshing!
    I don’t normally buy into Hollywood couples, but I like them. I like that JennG gets made up and looks super fab, but probably didn’t have time to get her dress tailored because she is active in her kid’s lives and they are a bigger priority.
    I think Ben is hot, but I still wonder how “In It” he is with JennG. I hope for the long run.

    • brin says:

      Hey girl!..hope all is well. I so agree with you…I love these two and I hope they are the real deal!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Hey ladies-agree 100% with you two.
        I never got the hate for Garner-she looks like a very pretty, but NORMAL mom to me, not a Hollywood ‘toxed alien.

        Ben looks damn good in that suit and I always forget that Cranston is a handsome guy. As Walt on BB, he is so unattractive…

      • eileen says:

        Hey Brin! I’m doing good! Getting settled in the new house and working on a promotion. 🙂
        How are you doin’?

      • brin says:

        That’s great Eileen…I’m happy for you! I’m doing good (glad it’s Friday)! Miss all my BB peeps!

    • T.C. says:

      I think her face is odd looking but great body. I’m still not sure about them. Some women keep having children to keep a stale marriage going.

      • eileen says:

        I would think bringing more children into a stale marriage would do the opposite from keeping it going. Kids are a huge Time Suck so it would be counter-productive. I think they were working on a boy and thought they’d give it one more try. JMO.

    • Kimlee says:

      Rachel Zoe is her stlyist so why would Jen get her dress tailored herself when she pays someone eles to do it for her. So really there is no excuse for her dress not being tailored.

      • deehunny says:

        ITA Kimlee. It looks like she’s wearing a sack. No one should applaud her for not having her dress tailored because she’s “more concerned about spending time with her kids.” Please. Errands and getting her dress tailored is her assistant’s job.

        It looks like a sack on her. And Ben worked so hard on this too

    • Jordan says:

      I like that she doesn’t rush to get super skinny after having her children but I was thinking that her lips looked a little ‘plumped up’ and odd. Maybe they are working on their marriage, and I hope it works and he keeps it in his pants around other women, because of their children but this is one that I won’t be surprised about hearing of a divorce in their 9th year of marriage.

  2. dooliloo says:

    A wonder Johnson… LOL! sense of humour is always good in these situations!

  3. V4Real says:

    I know some people think Ben is a douche but I like him. It’s good to see that Ben and Jenn knows how to lightened up and make cracks about what other celebrities would consider private.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I like him too. I’ll never forget when they were filming “The Town” in my ‘hood, he went above and beyond to make the filming schedule and the inconveniences that come with it easier on the locals. He also spent so much time ingratiating himself with the crazy old townies.

      I know it’s a small thing, but it’s nice to see a Hollywood-type that didn’t act like a pompous d*ck to the locals.

      I hope he keeps directing interesting projects-that is definitely his forte.

      • brin says:

        I agree, Kitten.

      • Apples says:

        I know, he was SO patient. I live in Boston, too- North End. The political North Enders gave him such a hard time but, all his crew and movie people were SO nice.
        I walked right by Ben while I was walking home from Whole Foods. He was talking to producer types (all wearing faded black jeans circa ’90’s) my jaw dropped and he smiled at me!!!! (I was wearing Red Sox hat…)
        He was super skinny at time but sexy , sexy smile.

      • wild flower says:

        Another Boston girl here. What’s with all the trash talk about their looks?? They’re actors not beauty pageant contestants. And predicting the demise of their marriage? Geesh. Nice story Apples..lucky girl.

  4. Would Vincet Cassel Wear This? says:

    Johnson? What is this the fifties?

    • Mimi says:

      That’s what makes it funny! He’s on TV, he doesn’t have a lot of options of what to call his Bendong.

      • Would Vincet Cassel Wear This? says:

        Meh. TV needs to catch up with the times and stop catering to the prudes who are now the minority. Can we scrap classical hold music while we’re at it too? i find the banality of it offensive.

  5. Kaye says:

    I agree about the dress needing some tailoring. You’d think if you were loaning a dress to a star who was promoting your brand, you’d make sure it fit her perfectly.

    • TrustMeOnThis says:

      INDEED. This happens all the time! The most common issue is dresses that need to be hemmed. Puddling around the feet is NOT correct! But it happens so often! In stills they can arrange the extra fabric, but it’s really obvs in red carpet video clips. They hike up the extra length while they march to the next cue. It looks really tacky in realtime.

  6. effy says:

    Wonder Johnson is funny.

  7. Honey Poo Poo formally known as beyonce's bump says:

    Bryan Crankston a.k.a Mr. White is looking sexy these days…Affleck and Garner bore me but the Joke was somewhat funny I guess *shrugs*

  8. Brannie says:

    Love these two. And its nice to see a beautiful woman look her age, not desperately trying to look 10 years younger.

  9. lori says:

    If she had meant his penis she would have said wonder junk! There’s also a cute story about her calling it junk

  10. Mia says:

    The kiss photo doesn’t look that cute to me. Lol. Heart of stone here maybe…

    • Vesper says:

      I agree. It’s a very unintimate kiss. His eyes are open, and their lips are barely touching. He’s not into it at all.

      Compare their kiss with a couple like Brad and Angelina – intimate, passionate, and lots of chemistry.

  11. Lindsey says:

    Wonder sperm? Wonder Johnson? Wonder Wang? Look at him and BOOM! you’re pregnant…does that only work for Garner?

  12. KellyinSeattle says:

    I agree; she seems sincere and down to earth…and her face does MOVE. Tailoring, yes….their kids are adorable….

  13. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    haha looks like another autocorrect disaster.

  14. Cathy says:

    LOL I think it’s funny. They’re good together, I hope it lasts for the long run

  15. snappyfish says:

    i like them but something tells me they won’t last.

    i have no idea why.

  16. mimi (a different one) says:

    Her face looks distorted, her lips “big” and plastic than ever and he right side of her lips and other facial eatures are pulled upward, while her left side is moe downward truning.

    IF anything she is the opposite of “gorgeous”. A very “big” unattractive farm girl with masculine and plain features. She’s got no class, no matter how much money she spends on her looks.

    Her jaw-line is one of the worst.
    I feel bad for Ben.
    All the gorgous and beautiful ladies he dated and he ends up stuck with the ugliest and plain looking of them all.

    • mystified says:

      I respectfully disagree. I think Jen has Ben beat in the looks department. I’ve never understood his appeal. His eyes are tiny and dull and he always has sort of a “dumb jock” expression on this face.

      • Mimi says:

        Ouch, harsh. I think she’s a very good looking woman with a nice figure. Damn, she’s had 4 kids! Seems like a devoted mom too, that speaks of more class than anything to me.

      • mystified says:

        Mimi I may be a bit harsh but my guess is that Ben’s ego can handle it. Love Jen’s look. Jen looks like a good looking version of Hillary Swank. Sorry.

      • Mimi says:

        Sorry Mystified, my response was intended for A Different Mimi. Totally agree with you on the Hilary Swank thing.

    • eileen says:

      Every woman that has big lips are not plastic and faked. She has always had full lips. I have full lips -my whole life. I’ve never touched them. Angelina Jolie has full lips-and I don’t care for her, but hers are natural.
      JG’s are natural as well. I hate that now these celebs get ridiculously enhanced duck lips that now anyone with full lips means they must be fake. you can definitely tell the difference on thin lips faked full, and natural full lips.

      • emmieapricot says:

        I really like Jennifer – she seems about as *real* as they come in Hollywood — but her lips are enhanced…

      • Bjf says:

        Most definitely not natural, but I can understand why she plumps them up. She had NO upper lip and a gummy smile. Much better now. And she didn’t go overboard.

      • Vesper says:

        If u check out enough pics of Jennifer and Angelina u will notice that their lip size goes up and down, depending on whether they are shooting a movie, or attending a high profile event. Even as a teenager Angelina’s lips were thinnner, particularly the upper lip. It should be the opposite, lips get thinner as one ages.

        The easiest way to tell fake lips from natural lips is the size of the upper lip vs. the lower lip. Lower lips should always be larger. Upper lips are thinner and defined.

    • Ally8 says:

      They mostly seem content together, but I agree it seems like a rebound situation that ended in marriage. He was just fed up of dating, and after the engagement to JLo imploded, he found another brunette Jennifer & settled down.

      I’m with those who think that the photos with Blake Lively suggest he can still find other women much more thrilling than his wife.

    • Kelly says:

      So funny and soooooo true. But he’s such a douche, so they really are made for one another.

    • flan says:

      It doesn’t seem healthy to be able to so completely trash every detail of another woman’s appearance.

  17. Mira says:

    Okay, this is lame but what is wonder johnson? I didn’t get his remark.

  18. Sara says:

    Imo, they both look fab for forty. I think they are a sexy couple.

  19. Miss Kiki says:

    I never gave up on Ben, not even after Daredevil! The whole Ben/Blake thing was one of those celeb gossip stories that I really hoped wasn’t true.

  20. Jayna says:

    I came in on the end, but I think Jay said this was one of the best movies this year.

  21. JD says:

    Meh…if a guy or his wife have to brag about his “johnson”, it aint that great.

    The REALLY good ones keep quiet about it. They don’t need to talk about it. ; )

    • Jayna says:

      He was just trying to be funny. He had been asked about it a lot on the junket and when stars come on these talk shows, they try to think of funny lines or stories. He knew he would be asked about the sperm remark because it only happened a week ago, so I think he was trying to make something funny out of it, just like he had some funny stories about being a dad. People forget how nervous a lot of these celebs are going on these talk shows wanting to be entertaining. Not many pull it off.

  22. ladybert62 says:

    She looks good – the dress is a little bit too long.

  23. dref22 says:

    Oh, Cranston is looking really good. Affleck definitely got hotter as he got older.

  24. Toot says:

    I guess I can see why some are attracted to Ben, but he just looks like a jarhead or meathead to me.

    • Ally8 says:

      I love to relay the anecdote about Gwyneth saying Ben just wanted a girl who would bring him beer by the pool.

      I did love him in Shakespeare in Love, though — great energy and charisma.

      • Toot says:

        Well, Jennifer G seems to be like that type, so Gwyneth was right. I hate that I just typed that last part. LOL

    • Jayna says:

      But Ben is very intelligent. It’s one of the things I find attractive about him. I don’t like him with hair so short, close to his scalp like this, because he has a small head on a big body. But I think he is very handsome when he wears his hair thicker on top and the sides. It’s a little too short on the sides here.

  25. ramie says:

    Give them some “wonder” birth control! Damn breeders….

  26. hoya_chick says:

    Hey Mr. White Yo! Lol

    Jen looks fab! Her make up and hair look great. Dress is too long though, and would have looked even more fab with the belt. Isn’t Rachel Zoe her stylist? None of her clothes are tailored either. Nothing makes an expensive piece of garment look cheaper quicker than having it look un-tailored!

    And does anyone else think it’s weird that she goes to all of his things and he barely ever goes to hers? Didn’t she just have her Butter premier too? I’m pretty sure he wasn’t there. Strange. Jen sees like such a great wife. I want to marry her and have her take care of me! Lol. Ben is looking great these days. I loved TheTown and I’ll be checking out Argo as well. My heart will forever belong to Matt Damon though. Swoon.

    • Toot says:

      He probably feels too important to be seen going to one of her premieres.

    • dooliloo says:

      “And does anyone else think it’s weird that she goes to all of his things and he barely ever goes to hers?”

      Actually I’m even surprised they’re together on the red carpet as back in the days they sort of vowed that no one would see them together on a red carpet nor attend events. Seems like they revoked their vows… So then again they look like they’re trying to minimize the attendance together so it’d make sense if he doesn’t go much to his wife events.

      • Mira says:

        They are doing the red carpet scene because Ben will most likely get nominated for Argo. It’s all about campaigning.

  27. Dusty says:

    I wouldn’t be braggin about wonder sperm if he were my hubby because everyone will naturally want to sample it! And, he will get the same result by referring to his wonder Johnson. I give them two more years.

  28. Mandy says:

    Gosh, I had the BIGGEST Ben Affleck crush when he first started out. By the time Armageddon came out, I was probably dreaming about him on a daily basis! Then he starting dating “J Lo” and that ruined it for me. But now, I think I’m getting hot for him again…

  29. MST says:

    Um — this is definitely a case of too much information.

    I always thought that Jennifer Garner looks a little mannish. She has jaws like a Rock’em Sock’em robot. But she does seem like a nice person.

  30. Madison says:

    Hypocrites! What happened to “you’ll never see us on a red carpet because we are private people” I don’t think I’ve ever seen him kiss her on the red carpet, you can tell he’s desperate for an oscar, his PR and Oscar campaign team have him on the right track and with the big studio money backing he’s sure to get one although given how good argo is he probably doesn’t need to campaign so hard by kissing jen garner on the red carpet, it looks fake, your capaigning for a gold statue ben not the presidency of the united states.

    • Karen says:

      IMO the picture of them kissing looks like a candid taken as they were exiting a car. I don’t think it was necessarily taken on the red carpet. If anything, it looks like they were kissing each other goodbye before they walked the red carpet separately.

  31. LadidahBaby says:

    I always think Ben has the emptiest, deadest-looking eyes–there’s just nothing there, and that puts me off. I hope he doesn’t let her down. She seems so honest and real to me, and she has put it all out there for him and their young family.

  32. Geekychic says:

    Sorry, can’t really feel anything for a guy who says (paraphrasing) that he’s thinking about his NeXT Movie when with his children, that he’s lucky his Wife is holding family together, because he ain’t present 100% even when he’s with them. Them Why do you have children??!
    If a Married actress said that, people would be outraged. This “family man” image is just that-an image, a brand. All of this is just Oscar campaigning. Douche. Always thought he was a douche, now I’m pretty sure.

  33. Thalia says:

    Can’t stand him. Ever since he made that comment when with JLO (I think it was her) about his hair. He just comes across as an arrogant stuck pompous jerk. Handsome, but a bad attitude.
