Jennifer Garner ‘can’t even look’ at her Oscars meme: ‘I wanna just punch her in the face’ (video)

Jennifer Garner became the new Chrissy Teigen at this year’s Academy Awards when a confused expression crossing her face at an inopportune moment was caught on camera. It soon spread across the internet, becoming the best Oscars meme of the night, as people questioned what the heck Garner was thinking as she looked “disturbed.”

Though she poked fun at herself with a few joke answers on Instagram after the Academy Awards, she has now revealed she really has no idea “what’s happening” there.

“I can’t even look at it,” she told Ellen DeGeneres while appearing on her show Friday. “I can’t. It’s too embarrassing.”

When DeGeneres asked her what’s happening in that moment Garner responded with a shocked, “what is happening?!?”

“I have no control over this,” Garner said. “What am I doing? I started getting texts, as you can imagine. People going, ‘What were you thinking? What’s happening?’ And I try really hard not to see myself online, but she was a little unavoidable.”

“No, I regret, regret, regret,” she said, adding: “I wanna just punch her, you know, in the face. No! Not really, I don’t.”

All we can hope is for Garner’s sake, that Teigen (who didn’t attend this year’s Oscars) returns to the ceremony next year to save her with an even more awkward expression.
