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.”
