Based on what we've been hearing lately, Jennifer Garner seems like a pretty patient wife.

While Ben gets kicked out of casinos, and generally gets up to all sorts of bad behavior while filming Batman V. Superman, Jen has been sticking by his side (publicly, at least).

However, a recent interview with director and former Affleck BFF Kevin Smith reveals that there may be some truth to the rumors that Garner wears the pants in her relationship, and it now seems her control over Ben's life is so tight that she even dictates who he's allowed to be friends with.

Asked by Yahoo Movies recently if Affleck planned to appear at Comic Con in San Diego, Smith replied, "I don't know because we're not f--king tight. He's got a wife that don't care for me at all. Plus, honestly, he probably don't care for me at all anymore."

During a recent stop on his speaking tour, Smith detailed exactly what Garner dislikes about him:

Kevin Smith has completed the script for Clerks 3!

The writer/director posted a picture of the script on Instagram, along with a description:

"IT IS ACCOMPLISHED! First draft of CLERKS III is 137 pages. Plays like the EMPIRE STRIKES BACK of the Clerks trilogy."

Smith originally planned to crowdfund the film on Kickstarter, but after the recent Zach Braff backlash, has scrapped that idea.

Fun movie news this afternoon: Kevin Smith is hoping to leave the industry on a high note in 2014 with one last full-circle directorial effort: Clerks 3.

The film would be the swan song installment of his slacker saga, which began with Clerks, the 1994 flick that put the indie filmmaker on the map.

Kevin's announcement follows the news that his hockey flick Hit Somebody will be turned into a six-part miniseries on an unannounced network.

"So with the HIT SOMEBODY shift, the minute Jeff Anderson signs on, my last cinematic effort as a writer/director will be CLERKS III #TaDa," Smith tweeted.

Kevin Smith might want to consider alternate forms of transportation.

Seriously, you can pimp out your own tour bus and just enjoy the ride, John Madden style. Sure it takes longer, but the director and air travel just don't mix.

Smith, who famously feuded with Southwest after he was kicked off a flight for being too large in February, had issues with Virgin America this time around.

BLOWING SMOKE: When it comes to flying, Kevin Smith tends to.

Smith says on his blog that he, his wife Jennifer Schwalbach, and their friend Jason Mewes arrived at New York's JFK airport in plenty of time for a flight.

"Boarding started at 11:15, and we arrived at the gate at 11:35 – a full 10 minutes before scheduled departure," Smith wrote in a blog post on Monday.

"But as we reached the gate, we saw a man closing the door ... We told him we were on the flight and he told us it was too late; the flight was closed."

"It was 11:36."

Ding! You are now free to get your fat ass off this plane.

Kevin Smith, director of Mallrats, Clerks, Chasing Amy and similar films, was told to take a hike from a Southwest Airlines flight for apparently being obese.

"You [messed] with the wrong sedentary processed-foods eater!" Smith, whose next film, Cop Out, comes out February 26, posted in an epic Twitter rant.

That was one of many Tweets (many not G-rated) fired off recounting the 39-year-old actor/director's expulsion Saturday from an Oakland-Burbank flight.

Southwest said officials had called Smith to offer their "heartfelt apologies," but also stated his removal was for the "safety and comfort of all customers."

Here's how it all went down:

Southwest

Smith had two tickets, but then decided to fly standby on an earlier flight, where only one remained. He was asked to leave after being seated. Southwest said:

"If a customer cannot lower the armrest and infringes on a portion of another seat, an adjacent customer would be very uncomfortable and a timely exit from the aircraft in the event of an unexpected emergency might be compromised."

THG NOTE: Isn't any emergency unexpected. Random question. Just asking.

"I know I'm fat," Smith says, having battled weight issues for years but. "I broke no regulation, offered no 'safety risk' (what, was I gonna roll on a fellow passenger?)"

"I saw someone bigger than me on THAT flight! But I wasn't about to throw a fellow Fatty under the plane. He & I made eye contact, he was like 'Please don't tell...'"

At least the humiliated director didn't lose his trademark sense of humor.

After landing in Burbank on a later flight, he wrote, "Don't worry: wall of the plane was opened & I was airlifted out while Richard Simmons supervised."

Kendra Wilkinson would've also worked. Whose side are you on?
