It's me, Ben. Haha oh wait, I keep forgetting you don't have to do that. This is my diary, so who else would it be? I can be such a shmendrik sometimes, it's unbelievable.
Well anyways, diary, my loyal friend, I just wanted to spend today talking about Jenny. It's Valentine's Day, and I spent all day with her. Loving her, praising her, laughing with her… I love her so much, I don't know what I'd do without her.
I remember when I met her on the first day of production on Daredevil. She walked onto the set and yelled, "I'm fucking hungry!" and went over to the craft service table straight for the corned beef and I thought, "Now THIS is a woman." So I started to walk over to the table to talk to her but before I could get to her Colin Farrell made his move. Next thing I know she's laughing wildly, touching his arm… I was already heartbroken. I had fallen in love with her at first sight, just like in the movies.
Being the romantic that I am, I immediately went into a tizzy and retreated to my trailer for some cigarettes and a Bayer, hoping I could just clear my head and stop crying before filming began in an hour.
I decided to call Matt. He's my BFF and he just has this way with girls that I envy - I mean, he got a number, how do you like them apples, LOL! So I told him how Colin was being a big jerk and ruining my chances with Jenny Garner and I rambled on and on until Matt stopped me and said, "Hey, man. I don't wanna hear any of this sad sap baloney. You're Ben Affleck. Was Colin Farrell in Pearl Harbor? Was Colin Farrell in Bounce? No. He was not. YOU were. Now, get out there and win that woman's heart!"
And that's what I did. I slammed down the phone, downed three shots of drambuie, went back onto the set, walked up to Jenny, looked Colin in the eyes and said, "Get the fuck out of here." Then I pushed him down to the ground, turned around and planted a big kiss right on Jenny's mouth. BOOM! We've been together ever since.
I still can't believe that was 10 years ago. Every day with Jenny since then has been amazing, absolutely amazing. I am the luckiest guy on the planet. She is my angel. I love her. I love her, I love her, I love her! Happy Valentine's Day, indeed!
