Here’s a nice shot of happiness that I would recommend injecting directly into your heart if that were possible and also not dangerous. During an appearance on Canadian talk show The Social on Wednesday, Judy Greer spoke about her longtime friendship with Jennifer Garner, who must be the nicest, most generous and caring person in Hollywood, because Greer couldn’t keep it together at the mere mention of her.
In the clip above (which was brought to my attention by this tweet), Greer is shown footage of the speech she gave when Garner was presented with a star on the Walk of Fame. After it finished, she’s seen wiping tears from her face. “Oh my god, my makeup artist is gonna kill me,” she says, adding:
“I just really love her so much, and she is such a special person... There’s not a lot of people in the world that [deserve] everything that they’ve gotten, and all the success, and she is one of them. I’m really happy for her. She’s also like a really amazing mom! And a really great friend! And I don’t understand how she has time for all of it because I do not.”
Awwwww, I wish I had a best friend with a heart of gold AND a star on the Walk of Fame so I could cry about how lovely they are on a Canadian talk show!!!
Here’s something weird: a good-intentioned but not-so-eloquent Matthew McConaughey has spoken about the “problem” with single-parent families TWICE in one week, and our pals at Celebitchy are on it. This sort of makes sense, as he’s promoting his new film White Boy Rick, in which he plays a single father... but! His quotes are a lot. They are below:
It’s kind of a stark reminder that we see every day — that a two-parent home is usually a healthier home, that you can trace a lot of things back to [family dynamics]. Actually my wife and I work with after-school kids who come from a lot of single-parent homes, and a lot of the trouble that these children are getting into from lack of support back home is very scientific. It’s also, some of these people, like the character I play, they’re born into it. Their hearts are in the right place, but they don’t have the means to succeed, and it can be cyclical.
This was the ‘80s when neighborhoods in Detroit were falling apart. You could also see it in Cleveland when we were shooting the film. It’s the same cycle coming back again—the problem of single-parent families.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post called The Social a “morning show,” but it actually airs at 1:00PM. We have updated the post to reflect the show’s true nature.
