Jennifer Garner is a very charitable person. In fact, she's just so giving that she bestowed audiences everywhere with the ultimate gift. The gift of Ben Affleck's penis. Or, so she joked on Ellen.
Garner was ostensibly there to promote her two new films, Men, Women & Children and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, but, as she conceded to Ellen, no one wants to talk about anything besides Gone Girl. And, as Ben Affleck's wife, she has the inside scoop about the member's only club into which we have all been inducted.
"Can we talk about Gone Girl for a second? Maybe the reason it's number one is he's showing his..." Ellen began.
"His penis," Garner said, nodding emphatically. "I think you're probably onto something, and I just...I mean, what I have to say is: You're welcome. I try to consider myself a charitable person and I wanted to give back. You give me so much. I wanted to give something back to all of you."
"We certainly appreciate it," DeGeneres said. "Forgive me if I don't know this: Is this the first time he's been frontal nude in a film?"
"Outside of our..." Garner began.
"The films you do at home," Ellen continued for her.
"Outside of our very racy films? Yes," Garner said.
There was actually a bit of post-game discussion, in which Affleck placed most of the onus for his nudity on director David Fincher.
"It was like, 'Hey, you know, at work today Fincher talked me into coming out of the shower,' and I was like, 'Oh, cool. Well, I hope he had on a wide lens,'" Garner joked. "You can't ask me to talk about this and not just be ready for whatever comes."
