Best friends Matt Damon and Ben Affleck spent the weekend hanging in the tropical paradise. Affleck’s wife Jennifer Garner, and baby Violet we’re along for the vacation as well. Matt Damon’s wife Luciana Barroso and their 1-year-old daughter Isabella are not pictured, but we’re present.

Just to bug the hell out of Linda B. I’m leaving were as we’re. The stupid comment was really sweet. Thanks a bunch.

    Jessica….pleaseeeeee use spell check before you post your articles…illiteracy is no joke. WERE and WE’RE are NOT interchangable. We’re means “we are” you meant to use “were”. Capisce?

    Linda B – While things like this bug me as well, if you’re going to be nitpicky, I will as well. Spellcheck would never catch a homynym error.

    I’m sure Jessica knows the difference between “were” and “we’re”. We all make mistakes. Especially if our brains are going faster than our fingers can type.

    I don’t think getting annoyed with “we’re” is nitpicking.

    Someone please please check Jessica’s posts, she can’t spell to save her life :-)

  4. Linda B

    I don’t think I was nit picking either. If you get paid to write you should know basic spelling.

    I agree we make mistakes, and even people who get paid to write make mistakes, that is called being human.

    If the grammar and punctuation on this site bother you so much, why not find somewhere else to go? It gets old seeing posts that have nothing to do with the article and everything to do with grammar. Tonysgirl and Diana are right, everyone makes mistakes, doesn’t mean they have to be pointed out every time they happen! Save your criticism for the Hollywood types!

    Really?

    Spelling and grammar errors are the best anyone can do, while Ben Affleck is walking around wearing THAT?

    What the hell are those shorts? And socks and tenny’s?? Seriously?

  8. Linda B

    People…”we’re” and “were” are 2 different words with 2 different meanings. She used them wrong twice in the same article..that’s NOT a typo that’s stupidity. Welcome to the dumbing down of America. If you write for a living and cannot spell wouldn’t it be prudent to have someone edit your articles before you post them?

    Ah Linda B. Lighten up.

    Bowing ty ty. Hey Jessica thanks for the shout out. You can blame my Catholic school education for making me a closet editor. That ruler the nuns smacked us with really hurt. You may end up a better writer because of my comments so we all win in the end.

  11. If you’re going to have a go at people’s spellings, remember: “pleaseeeeee” is pronounced “please-y”… You meant to put “pleeeeeease” which would give out the desired “pleeeeeease” sound.

    Okay… back to the news.

    I read something today that Ben and Matt are no longer friends. Seeing as their families just vacationed together in Hawaii, that certainly can’t be true! I don’t know why I care, but I’m very relieved to find this out. :o)

  13. Ben really let himself go, huh? He looks like crap.
