Jennifer Garner Sent a Selfie to the Wrong Number


Even celebrities aren't immune to wrong number mishaps. Just ask Jennifer Garner.

On Friday, the actress found herself "humbled" after texting (and sending a selfie) to a random stranger. Sharing a screenshot of the exchange on Instagram, Jen was attempting to text her former Alias co-star Carl Lumbly, and was met with an awkward reply. "Carl — this is Jen G. Here comes proof," she wrote. In the moments following, she pressed the send button on a photo of herself, and not Carl matter-of-factly replied: "Wrong number."

Once she realized her mistake, she wrote back, "Hahaha…Well this is me! I'm looking for my old [friend]." She continued to maintain a sense of humor about the whole situation, captioning the screen-grab: "You know the one time you take a selfie to prove to someone you're you? And get a 'wrong number' message just as it's gone out into the world? Well, it's humbling, isn't it. #IfYouAreWorkingWithCarlLumbly #PleaseTellHimImLookingForHim #BristowAndDixon."

Don't worry, Jen. It happens to the best of us.

This week, Garner, who played CIA agent Sydney Bristol in Alias, joined TikTok to celebrate the series's 20th anniversary with video footage from a recent cast reunion party. She captioned the clip, "We're here, we're older, but we still got it." She also gave a shoutout to the cast and crew who couldn't make it the celebration (ahem, Lumbly.) "We missed everyone who was working and couldn't make it in," Jen wrote. "We missed you, [J.J. Abrams], (because I screwed up and made this happen on a night you were busy). But man, it felt so good to be together again."
