Earlier today we discussed Ben Affleck's habit of being overly honest when it comes to wife Jen Garner's appearance. And now, sweet sweet revenge in the battle of women vs. men...
Matt Damon recently gained weight for his role in The Informant and said that his wife gently pointed out that that might be the reason his clothes didn't fit.
"I was like, 'What's going on?' I took another suit out and it didn't fit either," Damon said. "Honestly, what I thought was that somehow [George] Clooney had gotten in and paid somebody to slightly hem [the suits]. My wife said to me, 'Could it be that maybe you've put on some weight?' I'm like, 'That's absurd! I look fantastic!'"
Ah ya gotta love men. No matter how gross and unappealing they become, they see nothing but a ladykilling stud every time they look in the mirror.
Another difference is this: If a woman decides to be super honest, she'll at least be tactful. Another dude would have called him fatty and told him he'll never get laid again.
What would you have done in Mrs. Damon's place? Balled up your fists, gritted your teeth and hissed "Clooney!" or 'fessed up that your man had pudged up more than he thought? Have you ever told your man he's put on weight? If so, how'd you do it? And how'd he take it?
