Clip du jour: Clothed Matthew McConaughey interviewed by shirtless man

Think this will be the most awkward interview we’ll see Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner give while promoting their new romantic comedy Ghosts of Girlfriends Past? I have a new-found respect for Garner’s acting ability (watch her pretend that she understands what McConaughey is saying) and her wit (she tells the National Lampoon interviewer to take off his pants). Well played, Jennifer. Well played.

    I lover Jennifer Garner..even after she divorced Scott Foley (hot) to get with Michael Vartan (hotter) only to call it quits and then married Ben Affleck (really? downgrade Jennifer, downgrade!) and if there’s a god in the skies, she’ll never have to do another movie with the McConaughey, she deserves better.

    funny. and that guy’s right though, the matthew-shirtless hullabaloo is tired. whenever he’s photographed like that it’s always at the beach or a park or something. i never saw what the big deal was. and what do you mean she was pretending “that she understands what McConaughey is saying”? what part of that couldn’t you understand?

    wow, Milo, way to judge somebody because of their relationships that are really nobody else’s business. and she has children with Ben for goodness sakes, have some tact.

    “awkward”? That actually wasn’t even remotely awkward. McConaughey, and especially Garner, totally played along and rolled with it. She didn’t miss a beat during that entire clip.

    Hahahaha. Oh, that was hilariously awkward. I also have a bit of some new respect for Matthew McConaughey. He had been losing me with how similar his characters are, and I’m sure this movie won’t be any different, but he’s pretty funny. And Jennifer Garner. Man oh man, she’s witty. Good interview. Props to the interviewer for his unique approach.

    If you want to talk awkward Jennifer Garnre interviews, this is NOTHING compared to the time Gary Busy accosted her and Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

    This guy is superbly fitness-ized. He does the push-up. He does the sit up. He’s a specimen.

    I can’t wait for this movie. I stalked matthew’s trailer and smelled his gym bag! –

    Jennifer Garner should be thanking her lucky stars she got this movie- the skank ho certainly doesn’t deserve any better! I’m a little tired of Matthew’s romantic comedies myself, but the deciding factor in not seeing this movie is because Jen Garner’s in it.

    It didn’t look awkward to me. They are promoting a movie so a stunt like this was hardly surprising to the them they were playing along because they are doing interviews to promote their movie. If want to see what Jennifer Garner is really like when she is surprised watch the way she treated Gary Busey on the Oscar red carpet, she showed her true color which were not very nice at all.
