Jennifer Garner introduced Eddie Vedder’s performance at Sunday night’s 2018 Oscars, but it was another moment that got everybody talking. At one point during the awards ceremony, the camera panned to the Alias actress who was applauding in the audience like everyone else. But then out of nowhere, Garner slowly stopped clapping and a look washed over her face that made it seem as if she had come to some grand epiphany or realization.
The moment was quickly turned into a meme online, with everyone trying to figure out what the heck was going through Jennifer Garner’s head.
Ever the good sport, Garner responded late Monday on her Instagram story with a few clever voice overs poking fun at herself. “Congrats to Shape of Water! Maybe I should date a fish?” she says in the first one, referring to the Guillermo del Toro’s film that took home the statue for Best Picture.
“Hey Jimmy Kimmel, what’s in your wallet? Wait where’s my wallet?” she jokes in the second, as a jab to the catchphrase of her Capital One Venture commercials. Finally she referenced her upcoming HBO limited comedy series by asking, “Can’t wait to work with Lena Dunham! Wait did I sign a nudity waiver?”
Good news and bad news. While she can’t actually date a fish man, we hear there are reasonable substitutes out there for inquiring minds.
