OK, we all know that as a film, Jersey Girl sucked; so why are they re-releasing it as a series of anecdotes in a bunch of celebrity parenting magazines?
A week after the kid arrives, a "family friend" says, "Ben has been changing diapers. He's an amazing father...I don't know if I've ever seen anybody happier. He's already wrapped around Violet's little finger." [People via cbb]
But honestly, who talks like this who doesn't write for a soap opera? "Insider": "He won't let her cry for a second. He cuddles her, rocks her and soothes her with gentle kisses." [Life & Style via cbb]
"my daddy is a hunk" onesies? [People via babychic101]
Affleck went to buy diaper wipes, had no money, and tried to sell his autograph "for a dollar" to another shopper to raise the dough. "Affleck eventually was bought the wipes by another shopper, who 'was rewarded with a grateful kiss.'" [InTouch via Slate]
Forget peace on earth. I just want 2006 to be the year that a guy changing a diaper or buying some wipes doesn't automatically trigger saccharine sweet "The Perfectest Father Evar!" reactions like these.
