Garner plays the dance card.

Byline: - Rob Lowman

Jennifer Garner says part of the attraction of "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" was the chance to work with Matthew McConaughey. During a question-and-answer session, the pair show a camaraderie with each other that comes from working long hours on the set together.

At one point Garner finishes McConaughey's story about how his father told him about the birds and the bees. Later, the pair is asked about a scene in the film in which the young Jenny has her first kiss at a middle-school dance.

Had anything happened to them and what song was playing at the time?

Garner: "Mine was 'Groovy Kind of Love,' which I knew because I played it in the marching band for homecoming. ... and later at the dance I was trying to dance with the trumpet player when 'Groovy Kind of Love' was playing, and my friends are saying to him that he should dance with me but he wouldn't."

McConaughey: "But you didn't have your instruments on you?"

Garner: "We do not take our instruments to the school dance, thank you."

McConaughey: "So where did you get kissed?"

Garner: "Oh, I didn't get to kiss for a couple more years - I was like 18."

McConaughey: "So two more years of trumpet playing and he finally came around."

Garner: "No, I never got a kiss from him. He's got four kids now. His name is Tim Miller."

McConaughey: "This guy has come up a lot."

Garner: "Tim Miller, you know, heartbreak."
