Garner’s revelatory moment helps fill the gap left by walking meme-machine Chrissy Teigen, whose antics at the Oscars the past few years have kept Twitter amused. Like that time she was caught napping in 2017. Teigen and husband John Legend did not attend the ceremony this year.
Garner, 45, was a hit on social media not just because of the viral moment, but for her stunning cobalt blue Atelier Versace gown.
The former Alias star is returning to television in a new HBO comedy, Camping, produced by Girls co-creators Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner.
“We love Jennifer’s restraint and comedic timing, and we can’t wait for the warmth and intelligence she’ll bring to our central character, Kathryn. It’s truly a dream to have her first on our call sheet. Now we just have to write her some stunts,” Dunham and Konner said in a statement earlier this month.
