Happy-go-lucky Jenn Garner was on Conan the other night, and, among other revelations — did you know she goes by Jennifer Affleck at home? — she mentions how drunk she got while shooting an appearance on the Martha Stewart Christmas Special last year. She says they were drinking real Champagne throughout the shoot, and she had an empty stomach. But they kept refilling her glass for continuity of the shots. “Whenever I’m around her, I suddenly get really West Virginian and Southern,” says Garner. “So I got drunk and Southern, and it was the worst combination.” As a treat to kick off your weekend, we tracked down a clip. She seems more buzzed than drunk to us, but watch the evidence below and decide for yourself. And please also note that around 0:54 she starts blabbering about her family calling her “Puppy” and suggests they start calling Martha “Pumpkin.”
… and here’s what she said on Conan, starting at the 4:39 mark.
