Jennifer Garner responds to that hilarious Oscars meme

Jennifer Garner has responded to the Oscars’ most meme-able moment, in which she was caught in the midst of what appeared to be a sudden epiphany.

The clip was widely circulated after the ceremony, with Garner’s surprised reaction garnering thousands and thousands of likes, with countless fans wading in to give their opinions on what had Garner so shook.

Now, the actress has responded on her Instagram story, joining in on the meme herself.


“Congrats to Shape Of Water… perhaps I should date a fish?” she captions the first meme; “Hey Jimmy Kimmel, what’s in your wallet? Wait, where is my wallet?” she says the second time, referencing her own commercials with Capital One. On the final loop, she says: “Can’t wait to work with Lena Dunham! Wait, did I sign a nudity waiver?”, in reference to Garner’s upcoming stint on Girls, and Dunham’s penchant for stripping off on-set.

Check out the viral clip – and Garner’s reaction – below.

The broadcast stretched to nearly four hours, the longest Oscars telecast in over a decade.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that viewers for this year’s event dropped 19 percent from 2017, with an average of 26.5 million tuning in.

Last year saw an average of 32.9 million viewers, while the previous least-watched Oscars ceremony was in 2008 (31.8 million viewers).

While some critics have suggested that the politicised nature of this year’s Oscars was a reason for viewers tuning out, others have credited the low ratings on there being fewer TV viewers across the board.
