Kevin Connolly says it’s ok to break up through text message

Kevin Connolly of the hit television series Entourage grabs a bi

Extra! has a video interview (link leads to video) with the male stars of the upcoming film He’s Just Not That Into You, and like their femal co-stars you can tell they have a great camaraderie and have fun together. Ben Affleck, Justin Long, Kevin Connolly and Bradley Cooper joked around and laughed at some of the questions, with married man Affleck and known ladies man Connolly giving the most revealing answers when it comes to how they use modern technology to keep in touch with the opposite sex:

Affleck admitted he keeps in touch with wife Jennifer Garner via text message — and that’s how Jen keeps the father of two in check! “I correspond with my wife that way,” Ben said, laughing. “She’s like, ‘Get over here. Pick this s*** up! It’s time for you to go get our daughter!’”

Ben didn’t initially raise his hand when asked if he was romantic, but later admits he’s a sucker for romance. “I’m definitely romantic. I didn’t raise my hand because I didn’t want to be the guy who started talking about how romantic he was on TV. I wanted to dodge that bullet and I did dodge it.”

Co-star Kevin Connolly chimed in when the conversation turned to breaking up — using modern technology! When the men were asked if it’s okay to end things via text message, the “Entourage” star joked, “Oh yeah. That’s the best way.”

As for playing hard to get, Justin Long exclaimed, “Yeah, Connolly does. You play the game.” Kevin responded, “I don’t play hard to get. I’m very easy to get.”

It’s hard to tell from the video if Connolly is saying that text messaging is the best way to break up or keep in touch. Hopefully he’s at least sort-of joking if he says it’s the best way to break up. Have you ever called it off with someone in a text message or e-mail or been the recipient of one? It seems cruel to say the last, but it’s certainly easier for the dumper if not the dumpee.

This movie looks like a lot of fun even though it’s likely to be predictable. I enjoy films that are made up of a lot of different stories pieced together, even if they can feel rushed – like Love Actually – they’re often worth seeing.

    To begin with I can’t even text, I have enough trouble entering a new name into my contacts. I think you have to learn texting when you’re under 50. But I sure hope he was joking.

  2. NotBlonde says:

    He’s definitely joking about it being the best way to break-up. He’s got a more mild, subtle sense of humor from what I can tell.

  3. geronimo says:

    Nah, he was just joking.

  4. raven says:

    I just had to comment on the irony of the juxtaposition of this thread where KC says it’s ok to break up by texting next to Drew Barrymore’s comment about wanting dating to be more traditional.

  5. dude wtf says:

    Texting is great. If i wasnt that into someone & it wasnt like super serious. I would maybe tell him to “get lost” via text. Especially if i never wanted to talk to him again. Also, there is no age limit to texting. My mom is 55 & we text each other all the time. You can either use technology or ya cant.

  6. Annie says:

    Joking definitely.

    Besides, haven’t you heard? The fad is to do it in a 27 second phone call. :)

    Random: Read the book. HILARIOUS. I think everyone should and I can’t wait for this movie.

  7. Anoneemouse says:

    Kevin Connelly is hilarious and I think he is a great actor. Love Entourage and can’t wait for Season 6!

  8. Gracie says:

    Better to text a break up than to just take up and leave.

  9. Emily says:

    hahaha that reminds me of that parody song by the guy who created the infamous Shoes song: You can’t text message break up!

    LOL I love his shirt.

  11. Melanie says:

    Kevin Connolly is a douche.

    My live-in fiance broke up with me over text in August 08. Guess he’s a trendsetter.

  13. wendy says:

    That would be definately wrong.Its best to seat down and talk and reach an understanding rather than just text like a coward

  14. peggy o says:

    Of course Kevin Connolly was kidding. He’s a really nice guy. He is truly interested in finding someone to settle down with and love.
