Jennifer Garner Speaks About Sexism in Hollywood: Ben Affleck Only Gets Asked About 'Tits' on the 'Blurred Lines' Girl

Jennifer Garner gets a big personal pizza delivered to her table during 2014 Elle’s Women in Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (October 20) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 42-year-old actress arrived on stage eating a slice of the pizza and cracked a few jokes before making a passionate speech about being a woman in the industry.

“The fact that there even needs to be a Women in Hollywood event is a little bit sad,” Jennifer said. “I mean, the men in Hollywood event is every day—it’s called Hollywood. Fifty-one percent of the population should not have to have to schedule a special event to celebrate the fact that in an art that tells the story of what it means to be human and alive, we get to play a part.”

“So for example, my husband and I do kind of the same job, a little bit. Not long ago we both had one of those magical days, we call it a junket, where we both attended these lovely events where people come in every four minutes, they ask the same questions over and over again, you know the drill. We got home at night and we compared notes,” Jennifer continued. “And I told him every single person who interviewed me, I mean every single one, and this is true of the red carpet here tonight Elle, asked me, ‘How do you balance work and family?’ and he said the only thing that people asked him repeatedly was about the tits on the ‘Blurred Lines’ girl [Ben Affleck's Gone Girl co-star Emily Ratajkowski], which, for the record if we’re talking about them, they are real and they are fabulous. Take a look and enjoy.”

    The “Blurred lines girl” has a name. (I’m sure your husband knows it.)

  • Valais

    lol I am sure he does

  • Valais

    I don’t know why but it’s just her personality but I just picture her being the naggy wife type.

  • Anya

    I’m sure it was meant to point out, that the interviewers didn’t even bother to say the actress’ name and just called her the “Blurred Lines girl”. Which is just another prove of sexism.

    At least that’s how I understood that Jennifer meant it.

  • Dart Vade

    I think she probably meant that she is a terrible actress and if it wasn’t for the video where unknown and not cared to know name actress was first noticed but has done nothing since deserving of a name we should remember.

    At least that’s how I took it. I dont think we ten to remember most girls names who are only famous for showing their boobs, they are usually referred to as
    “that chic”

  • MrsJaxTeller

    me too. And Jennifer sounds like a woman who is confident in herself and her marriage.

  • Revengefan0101

    She shouldn’t be. Ben allegedly cheats on her all the time. One woman he cheated with was allegedly Blake Lively.

  • MrsJaxTeller

    Just rumors…

  • Zoee

    So Ben Affleck is doing Emely Ratajkowski, and with this one (fling) Jen Garner is really worrie

  • JC

    That’s called sarcasm.

  • JC

    I get the opposite vibe. I thinks she’s pretty cool & laid back.

  • Table4

    When literally her only contribution to anything ever is showing your tits, yeah, when reffering to her, they’re probably going to ask about it. That’s like not asking Usain Bolt about running.

  • Welly

    See Ben bossing and telling her what to do. Like Jen. That looks good the pizza.

  • Ear_Of_Sympathy

    Mmmm…likely not just rumors – he’s admitted to Gwyneth Paltrow that he cheated on her dozens of times…

  • Ear_Of_Sympathy

    well, Emzie is good at showing titsz and ass and cunt and fuckhole in all kindss of places n shit. so saying ‘Blurred Lines” girl is reallt more respect thatn she deserves as n actress…JUST SAYIN…

  • Ear_Of_Sympathy

    And speaking of ‘Blurred Lines” , what is wrong with Jennifer Garners face?!? there’s something wrong with the contours…
