Report: Most Couples Met On Set Of 'Daredevil'

WASHINGTON—Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s appearance at the Academy Awards Sunday undoubtedly inspired fond memories in the estimated 73 percent of American couples who, according to a new report from the U.S. Census Bureau, also met on the set of the 2003 superhero film Daredevil. “Survey data collected over the past 10 years reveals that, just like Jen and Ben, the overwhelming majority of couples in the United States first met while visiting, working on, or passing through the set of Daredevil,” said Joseph Frey, the statistician who compiled the report, noting that 28 percent of partners got to know each other while doing gaffing or lighting work, 18 percent met while in line for on-set catering, and 15 percent simply visited the set and were introduced by mutual friends. “I myself met my wonderful wife, Kristen, while I was doing some consulting work for 20th Century Fox and she was working as a PA on Daredevil. Whenever people ask when we got together I always say, ‘Well, when did Daredevil come out?’ Of course, statistically speaking, there’s a pretty good chance they already know the answer.” Frey added that the two are happily married with one daughter, who, like most children born in 2009, was conceived on the set of He’s Just Not That Into You.
