Ben Affleck came to Danielle Fishel’s rescue during an embarrassing Halloween scene when she was younger. It seems the Boy Meets World star attended a costume party during her days as Topanga Lawrence on the popular coming-of-age television series. She was wearing five-inch heels when she stumbled on an uneven walkway and tumbled to the ground, gaining a bloody lip in the process.
The pretty 33-year-old actress penned a memoir wherein she detailed all the awkward and humiliating things that happened to her growing up in the public eye. The 224-page tome is called Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern: Tales of Calamity and Unrelenting Awkwardness, and it was released on September 9, 2014 in hardcover and Kindle editions. In it, Fishel dishes about the fateful day that she wound up on the ground with torn fishnet stockings and blood seeping from her lip only to be rescued by none other than Ben Affleck, according to Us Magazine.
Fishel explained that some bystanders laughed at her as she lay “splayed out on the ground,” but one man took action and scooped her into his arms. It was Ben Affleck, and Fishel thought he was a terrifyingly handsome giant. It’s no wonder she thought he was huge. Affleck stands a towering 6’4″ while Fishel is a diminutive 5’1″. With the aforementioned five-inch heels on, Fishel would have been closer to 5’6″, which is still tiny compared to her Halloween party rescuer. Fishel recalled her thoughts about the events of that evening, reported Page Six.
“Suddenly, I was scooped up in someone’s arms and hoisted into the air. I looked at my captor and realized something horrific. He was terrifyingly handsome. Like incredibly, ruggedly, mind-bogglingly handsome. My fishnet panty hose were torn at both knees and blood was running all the way down my left leg. My first thought was something like ‘Please don’t bleed on this handsome man, Danielle’ and my next thought was ‘Holy h*ll, this man is Ben Affleck. This handsome giant is Ben freaking Affleck and you might bleed on him.'”
Danielle Fishel’s encounter with Ben Affleck is just the tip of the iceberg. Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern: Tales of Calamity and Unrelenting Awkwardness promises to deliver a boatload of embarrassing and gawky episodes, according to the book description.
“It’s a book for anyone who, like Danielle, has ever tripped and fallen down a flight of stairs in a room full of people, had a romantic moment with their significant other that was ruined by horrendous gas, or taken a Halloween photo without realizing there was a huge chunk of chocolate-covered strawberry in their teeth.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Ben Affleck’s lovely wife was the recent subject of baby bump rumors when she was photographed from the side looking slightly swollen. Although eagle-eyed paparazzi claimed that 42-year-old Jennifer Garner looked a little bit pregnant, her reps eventually got around to refuting the rumor. Ben Affleck, also 42, is already proud papa to three beautiful children with Garner.
