This is Jennifer Garner on the 2013 SAG Awards red carpet. Just like two weeks ago at the Golden Globe Awards, Garner refrained from participating in red-carpet interviews with her nominated husband Ben Affleck.
Why? I imagine it's because this is their job: to work a red carpet and campaign for Oscar votes. That means that he's the focus right now. It's Ben's year for Argo and Jennifer is being supportive of the job he has to do.
That's why I was so surprised in advance ofÂ Inauguration Day to see Michelle Obama sporting her hot-topic new â€™do. Talk of her new bangs has eclipsed a momentous day for her husband.
Calculated? Conspiracy? Meaningless?
