MATT DAMON Is He Throwing Some Shade At Jennifer Garner?

Matt Damon

I love Matt Damon as he’s one of the most intelligent actors in the business right now, but sometimes it seems like his quotes get a little misconstrued. Some people are saying that he threw a little shade in Jennifer Garner’s direction for being photographed all the time with her kids. Here’s what he says exactly:

“I think marrying somebody who’s not a celebrity, it just takes a lot of the pressure off.” His old friend Ben Affleck hasn’t been quite so lucky. “Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, she sells a s–tload of magazines in the midwest. Magazines that – Ben explained this to me – you and I have never heard of, but that appeal to a mom in the midwest, who for some reason identifies with Jennifer and wants to know what she’s doing as a mom. As a result of that, there are always five cars outside their house.”

I don’t think he’s necessarily throwing shade at his good pal’s wife, but just perhaps comparing how life is when you’re married to a celebrity versus a non-celebrity. But then again, he didn’t really have to use Jen as an example, right? What do you guys think about his quote here? What is Matt REALLY trying to say here?

    I think he uses the affleck s (and Jolie pittts) to explain why he doesn’t get pap attention and they do. However, I remember when he was single and he Still didn’t get as much pap attention as Ben. People like him but simply aren’t interested in him as a celebrity. I think he might be a tad jealous of Ben and Brad although he’s denying it.
