The couple who ice bucket together, stay together!
In perhaps the most adorable #ALSIceBucketChallenge video to date, Ben Affleck happily accepts his nomination from fellow director Tyler Perry — before his wife, Jennifer Garner, makes a cameo.
The Gone Girl star stands in front of a pool, wearing a “Detroit City” T-shirt as he explains why he’s taking on the challenge, which is to help raise awareness for ALS. He then nominates people “who look good in a wet T-shirt”: Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris, Matt Damon and “the lady with the bucket,” his wife.
(In case you're not familiar with the phenomenon, friends nominate each other to take on the challenge of dumping ice water over their heads. If they refuse within 24 hours, they are to donate $100 to ALS. If they go through with it, they donate $10.)
