Actress Jennifer Garner has pulled a page from Kanye West’s book. In an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday (Oct. 29), the “Dallas Buyers Club” star admitted to using the hashtag “#NoDisrespectToBenAffleck” in casual conversation with her famous husband, Ben Affleck.
West originally coined the term in a Twitter rant slamming late night host Jimmy Kimmel, after the latter aired a parody of West’s candid interview with BBC starring a child as the “Yeezus” rapper.
“SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F**KING BEN AFFLECK,” West wrote in one of many angry tweets, followed by the hastags “#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK” and “#ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL.”
“I say that all the time,” Garner told Kimmel. “I say, ‘You look crazy. Hashtag, no disrespect to Ben Affleck.’ Just on an average day, that’s just how I might greet him in the morning.”
During the interview, Garner also dished on her husband’s fixation with baseball. Affleck, a Boston native, is a die-hard fan of the Red Sox, who are currently in the running for the 2013 World Series title against the St. Louis Cardinals.
“Once you get into the playoffs, it’s a little bit like, somebody just made an error so now I have to change where I’m sitting in the house,” Garner explained.
“It’s a little bit ridiculous,” she continued. “The sweatshirt goes inside out, the rally cap goes on…. But he’s not kidding. He’s really not kidding. Like, you would go to a game with him, and if they lose, he tells his friend, ‘Sorry, I have tickets for tomorrow, but you can’t come. We lost because of you’…. It’s some weird guy thing.”
According to Garner, Affleck’s intensity has spilled into the couple’s family life.
“That’s really all that’s happening at my house right now,” she joked, adding, “I don’t know if the kids are being fed…. And trick-or-treating might be canceled if there’s a game seven.”
“Is that part of the deal when you marry Ben Affleck?” Kimmel asked.
“It’s one of many deals that you make with the devil,” she quipped. “That is indeed part of the deal.”
Garner, 41, and Affleck, 41, have been married for eight years. They have three children together, daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, and a son, Samuel, born in February 2012.
