New York Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner was teased by Aaron Rodgers for not knowing Jessica Alba, and the actress chimed in on Twitter.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has made trips to Madison Square Garden as a near frequent destination since being traded to the New York Jets. He was spotted at a Rangers and Knicks playoff games with running back Breece Hall and wide receiver Allen Lazard. But, it was Rodgers’ trip to Game 2 between the Knicks and Miami Heat with cornerback Sauce Gardner that really got the NFL and entertainment worlds talking.
When speaking with reporters on Wednesday, Gardner revealed that Rodgers told him that they were sitting next to actress Jessica Alba, but the Jets cornerback didn’t know who that was. From there, Gardner said that Rodgers looked at him like he was crazy for not knowing who Alba was.
“When we were getting seated, [Rodgers] was just picking on me a little bit for being young,” Gardner said, h/t Daily Knicks. “We were getting seated and he was like ‘we’re about to sit by,’ what’s her name? ‘We’re about to sit by Jessica Alba,’ and I’m just like ‘Oh, I don’t know who that is.’ And he just looked at me, he looked at me like I’m crazy.”
Gardner later clarified in a separate tweet that he has seen Alba in movies before, but that he never looked up her name.
Then, Alba broke her silence about meeting Gardner at the Knicks game.
