Blind Item #7

It is no accident that this A- list mostly movie actress is making sure stories about her helping out an ex are being released almost every day. There is a movie coming out very soon and this is being used as talking points for interviews to get maximum attention on her.

What's the movie? I thought her HBO show was well a show

Ophelia said...

It's Peppermint....don't mind me I'm so tired I forgot that IMDB is a thing for a few minutes..

Tricia13 said...

@Ophelia-Peppermint.
Pretty intense film she plays a vigilante after her family gets murdered by a gang
Saw the trailer... Oscar worthy shit

totaji said...

She might be done with him, but she’s using him for promotion in her career. Very unfeminist.

Ophelia said...

I haven't seen the trailer but I saw the poster the other day while getting off the subway and was so confused why Rachel McAdams looked so different then realized it was Jen haha

And ah is she going to use the talking point how like her character she'll do anything for family?

Tricia13 said...

In fact,was watching the trailer with a bunch of kids(part of a school trip we were there to see Transylvania 2), and the manager apologized for it being shown on accident. It’s -intense.

AwkwardTurtle said...

The play the trailer for Peppermint on Youtube ads, which is where movie trailers go when they're trying to draw an audience they don't have. Same thing happened with Proud Mary and Red Sparrow.

Tricia13 said...

I think...

Unknown said...

Duh. It’s all fake.

Laineybin/EDN said...

Or another take:

the rabid tabloid press is following them both as they know that his breakdown will sell papers.

She seems like a nice person and his falling off the wagon is coincidental to her movie coming out. Or is Enty saying that they planned this together? LOL

Ophelia said...

OR since the tabloids are saying he'll lose Batman over this cuz of post rehab insurance.

Even he knows he sucks as Batman and this is an elaborate plan for him to get out of his contract early lol.

Connie Courtney said...

Peppermint has flop written all over it.

Sara, Making It Work said...

He's been off that wagon for a very long time.

HeatherBee said...

Peppermint- Elektra 2- Electric Boogaloo

cheesegrater15 said...

Peppermint looks so stupid.

sandybrook said...

Still she needs him around and lucid to be a decent father to his kids.

Unknown said...

Jen has learned to play the game very well.

Jon said...

I'm sure she's the one driving him to drink. She seems like a shrew.

Laineybin/EDN said...

@Jon - how does she seem like a shrew? I'm curious because she's only ever seemed polite and kind of boringly "normal" to me. What has she said or done that makes you think "shrew"?

DotDotDot said...

Has Jennifer Garner ever declared herself a feminist?

DotDotDot said...

Other than gossip sites I’ve never seen anything that implies or states that Jennifer Garner is who you all think she is.

Jon said...

Did you read the blind?

Martin said...

Death Wish, but with a woman.

Amartel said...

Well why not Death Wish but with a woman? They're openly redoing every other movie out there. It might be good or it might be bad - too early to tell and it's a low bar these days. She does not and has never seemed like a shrew.

Amartel said...

And she did help him out. He's helpless and needs helping.

yepthatsme said...

Enty is not saying she lied about what she did for Ben, only that she is making sure people know that she was the one to convince him to go to rehab! I think its commendable on her part that she cared enough, whatever the reason be, to persuade him to go to rehab! TeamJen all the way!

She deserves to get something good out of taking care of his sorry ass.

Brayson87 said...

This blind is ridiculous, everyone knows she can't act, nobody would be fooled into seeing her movie by some off screen kindness.

Amy said...

She did help him, regardless. An addict has to want help though. I dunno. I like her. There are other ways that are much more selfish that she could have done to get publicity.

Bitchysoisse said...

I saw the trailer for that movie in the theater and it was AWFUL. It's not Death-Wish-With-A-Woman, it's just another sad attempt at women doing traditionally male roles as a movie's only gimmick. How many "BUT THEY KILLED MUH FAAAMILY!!!" revenge flicks are we going to have to avoid before Hollywood realizes that big-budget action movies have gone out of style. If somebody runs over a fruit cart in that movie I swear I'll start to scream.

Incidentally, this isn't the first female vigilante movie ever made, there's been tons of them. Sandra Locke did Sudden Impact back in 1983, definite female vigilante that didn't need "training", martial arts, or super strength, just a big gun and a burning desire to get even, although naturally Clint Eastwood saved the girl from prosecution in the end (after all, it was his movie). Stay home and watch the half-dozen or so female vigilante movies that have already been made instead of turning out for this tired old schlockfest.

Nothing will save "Peppermint."

Owlette said...

At least she gets some benefit. I’m sure she has to deal with his BS when she doesn’t have a movie coming out too.

Jon said...

I Spit On Your Grave and Sleepaway Camp are great female vigilante films.

@DotDotDot: Yeah I think as long as she doesn’t “market” herself as a “fiminist” she can do whatever the fuck she wants. It’s the hypocritical assholes who use it as a PR tool that get me.

It’s like that time an actor’s castmate kept trolling the fans to ship her with him—for some reason I always had this impression she wanted to be one half of a “Tumblr SJW Power Couple” (ugh, hate the level of PC). She didn’t like his wife at first, but as soon as she realised the sub-group of fans who ship him with his real-life wife fell into a a Venn diagram section that overlapped those who shipped his character with hers, HSBC started faux-fawning over his wife like the wife was her new <3 BFF. Gross!!!! Is that what a feminist looks like now? A pragmatic suck-up?! I can still feel compassion toward a woman who destroyed me, but damn that was some “user” famehoe shit.

And don’t tell me she doesn’t call the paps (because the guy she was papped with at the radio sure as hell never called the paps ever until he married his wife) or that she isn’t “picky” with who she dates (the crazy terrifying Tumblr NUTJOBS who stalk him aren’t more tomato cream than her). Never been so disenchanted by the movement in my life!

But that’s just me. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Is everyone so full of shit in those circles?! FFS.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

How did autocorrect correct “she” to “HSBC”? 😐

Scandi Sanskrit said...

*the crazy terrifying Tumblr NUTJOBS who stalk him ARE MORE ROMANTIC than her

🥫🍅🙎🏻‍♀️

Shaddup Mimsey said...

There is a crazy Jenn hater that goes by Bambi

mercyprosperity said...


@Amartel That's malarkey. Affleck is not 'helpless'. HE's cheating; it's not Jennifer's job to take him anywhere. Let his new girlfriend drive him to rehab.

plot said...

No matter what anyone thinks of Garner, who the hell else is going to schlepp his ass to rehab, stopping by way of some heavy carbs to soak up the morning fifth of scotch?

No one.

Certainly not his bimbo of the moment.

Certainly not Damon who is currently in hiding (after making some stupid remarks about Weinstein.)

Certainly not his parents or brother who vanish the minute Ben has his own issues.

So Jen it is until the kids are old enough to drag him in themselves.

Ben doesn't need a bimbo; he needs a 24/7 nurse/helpmate/monitor. Look in the makeup department next time, I guess.

Youre Tired said...

Lmao it’s nothing but another Taken, Sleepless, John Wick. It looks incredibly corny and Garner’s dry ass delivery leaves a lot to be desired. The movie looks cheesy as fuck

Melissa Lyn said...

It’s basically her going back to her alias roots.
