04/29/2009 - Jennifer Garner -"I was picking on Ben Affleck and making fun of him because I\'ve known him for a really long time and Jennifer goes, \'You know, if you keep saying stuff about him, I\'m going to kick you\'re a*s.\' And she could, I\'ve seen \'Alias.\' She has a real girly sense of humour and didn\'t understand that I was kidding." © Janet Mayer / PR Photos
Jennifer Garner will "kick the a*s" of anyone who makes fun of her husband Ben Affleck.
The actress clashed with her 'Catch and Release' director Kevin Smith - an old friend of the 'Pearl Harbor' star - because she didn't understand he wasn't making serious attacks on the actor.
Smith explained: "Jennifer does not share the same sense of humour as me - she did not like my jokes.
"I was picking on Ben Affleck and making fun of him because I've known him for a really long time and Jennifer goes, 'You know, if you keep saying stuff about him, I'm going to kick you're a*s.' And she could, I've seen 'Alias.' She has a real girly sense of humour and didn't understand that I was kidding."
The 'Mallrats' filmmaker was particularly astonished by Garner's attitude because Affleck has a "far sicker" sense of humour.
Smith added during a question and answer session with fans: "I remember talking to Ben and being like, 'I know your lady is not finding me amusing. Ben, I've known you for years, and you are far sicker than I am!' His jokes are way dirtier than mine. He's made jokes to me, and I've been like, 'Ben, you need to go to church.'
"Ben is one of the most intelligent people on the planet. He will run for office and one day be President, and then we'll smoke a joint in the Oval Office. He's very well-spoken and been brought up extremely well, but he's filthy!"
