Jennifer Garner has confessed she was intoxicated during a recent appearance on TV lifestyle queen Martha Stewart's cookery show - because she was too busy preparing for the programme and drinking champagne to eat.
The actress found herself getting tipsy as she continued to sip bubbly on an empty stomach.
She says, "By the time we get to cooking and having our champagne, I hadn't had anything to eat... and I got drunk.
"They needed it (champagne drinking) for continuity and it tasted good... and whenever I'm around her (Stewart) I suddenly get really West Virginian and southern... and so I got drunk and southern, and it was the worst combination.
"I can't bear to watch it because I just started talking faster and faster."
