Late-night shows have been a fixture on television for decades, and many hosts have made millions by being the best at their craft. Names like Johnny Carson, David Letterman, and Jimmy Kimmel have all done well on late-night television, and it is one aspect of the small screen that won’t be going anywhere.

One major name on late-night television has been Conan O’Brien, who debuted back in the 90s. The hilarious O’Brien has interviewed the biggest names and has been part of some iconic moments. Years back, O’Brien and Jennifer Garner wound up having a moment together that went down in infamy.

So, what took place between these two figures? Let’s take a look back and see what happened.

Conan’s Show Was A Huge Hit

Conan O’Brien has been a mainstay on late-night television for years, but before this, Conan was making his name as a sharp writer in Hollywood. He cut his teeth on Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons before getting his chance to shine, and once he got in front of the camera, he became a star in no time.

O’Brien has had a couple different late-night talk shows dating back to the 90s, and through the years, he has established himself as a legendary comedic voice who’s just as intelligent as he is funny.

While he is known best for his late-night work, Conan has done a little bit of everything. He has written books, hosted a podcast, voiced animated characters, and a whole lot more. Any person aspiring to reach the same heights as Conan had better be ready for the work and the passion involved in the man’s sucecss.

Over the years, Conan has interviewed plenty of popular Hollywood names, including none other than Jennifer Garner.

Jennifer Garner Was A Memorable Guest’

Having made her debut back in the 90s, Jennifer Garner is a performer who hardly needs an introduction. She has found success in film and on television, and thanks to her body of work, Garner has enjoyed celebrity status for years now, earning every penny that she has made along the way.

After spending years getting smaller roles with the occasional win, things really turned around for the performer in 2001 when she was cast as the lead on Alias. From 2001 to 2006, Garner appeared in over 100 episodes of the hit show, and it wound up being the perfect launching point for her career. Her stint on the show ultimately gave way to a great film career.

On the big screen, Garner appeared in films like Pearl Harbor, Catch Me If You Can, 13 Going on 30, Juno, Dallas Buyer’s Club, and a whole lot more. It has been an impressive run for Garner, and her legions of fans always make sure to support her latest and greatest projects.

Naturally, Garner has been someone that has made her rounds on late-night television, and this eventually led to to an infamous encounter with Conan O’Brien.

Their Infamous Moment

During their time together back in 2003, things seemed to be flowing alongy nicely between Conan O’Brien and Jennifer Garner in front of the studio audience. However, after Conan used the word “snuck” in their conversation, Jennifer Garner was quick to jump all over his grammar.

“‘Snuck’ isn’t a word. You went to Harvard, you should know that,” she said.

Conan was completely caught by surprise, and the audience made sure to give an instant reaction to Garner’s correction.

Now, as Garner herself noted, Conan O’Brien did, in fact, attend Harvard, which is one of the most prestigious universities on the planet. O’Brien thrived academically at the university, graduating magna cum laude. Yeah, the guy is super smart, and he obviously has a great grasp of both grammar and syntax.

As the old adage goes, “You come at the king, you best not miss,” and after Conan busted out a dictionary, everyone quickly saw how badly Jennifer Garner missed on this one.

The clip of their entire exchange is priceless, and watching Jennifer Garner sit there in shame while Conan maniacally laughs after proving her wrong is peak comedy. Conan getting out the dictionary to prove her wrong was simply the icing on the cake, and it’s partly why this clip has lived on for years.

The next time you get the itch to correct someone’s grammar, think about this clip and double check just to make sure you don’t swing and miss this badly.
