’s fairy tale wedding
to Amal Amaluddin
was the place to be for Hollywood. It was probably even bigger than even the Oscars. But one power couple was noticeably absent — Ben Affleck
and Jennifer Garner
But his wife revealed the real reason last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: LICE!
Explaining to Jimmy how easily children can pick up the parasitic insects at school, she reveals her kids got them and then they quickly spread through the Affleck house. The 42-year-old recounts a visit from the Lice Lady who combed through her hair and applied an oil to her head that smelled like sulfur and rosemary.
All fine, just hang out in the house and don't leave, except then her husband invited her to a party. Not wanting to be high-maintenance — "I don’t want to ever be called high-maintenance. I am not a high-maintenance chick!" — she went with him.
"And the first person I meet is George Clooney," she remembers. "And I had never met George Clooney and I was kind of like, 'Gasp! He’s so handsome!'. I walk up to him and I'm chatting with him acting like it's cool, I chose to [grease my hair]. And I can see that he smells me but he's trying to be polite. So anyway, people keep asking why we weren't at George’s wedding and we were both 'working' but I think he didn't want Licey there."
The actress also played Catchphrase while she was there and reveals her competitive nature!
