My Celebrity Encounter Cont'd


I've know you've all been on the edge of your seat waiting for me to reveal my mystery star sighting.

Well, most of you were right. It was Ben Affleck!!

I told you my clever opening line, right? "So where are Jay and Silent Bob?" For some reason, I thought I was the only one who saw "Mallrats," or "Chasing Amy," and surely Ben would find my comment brilliant. Not so much!

He did turn to me and smile and then gently patted my back like a mom pats her child on the head when they've just said something silly. His smile was amazing.

He was with a bunch of friends, one of which I recognized as a celeb but I just couldn't place him. My friend told me it was the dude from "Erin Brokovich." Aaron Eckhart was his name. The best part is they were meeting their friend Joaquin.

Ben was absolutely delicious. He joked with me about not getting enough coverage in the teen mag industry. He wanted to know who was on our cover that month and why we never contacted him. I tried to be charming, but failed miserably.

Eventually their waitress came over and pretty much kicked us out. The V.I.P area we were in was closing down so that Ben and his Hollywood friends could enjoy some privacy. Must be nice being famous!!

Ever since that meeting, I've been in love with Ben. He was so gracious, I thought he could do no wrong. Then he up and fell in love with JLo. What an ass!

Still, he'll always be my first.

Wow, I don't think he's looked that good in awhile. By the way, I loved Mallrats when I saw it in the theatre. I laughed sooo hard. Too bad it didn't stand the test of time.

He's currently kicking around Mass directing some movie. He's within easy driving distance to me! But something tells me I wouldn't get close enough to get a pat on the back.

And I would have said, "Hey Ben. You're suspect."

But hasn't he redeemed himself with Jennifer Garner? I don't know much about her but she's gotta be 100x better than J-lo.

Oh how lucky!

I, too, was in love with him until the whole J-Lo thing. He lost a lot of my admiration after that!

Oh delicious! Mr. Affleck is my boyfriend. If he was sporting some facial hair, I would have gone completely ga ga. You are one lucky lady!
