Jennifer Garner reminded “Tonight Show” viewers on Wednesday that head lice can terrorize the rich and famous, too.
The actress, who is married to “Gone Girl” star Ben Affleck, said her whole family suffered through a lice infestation “years ago” when one of her daughters brought home the bug from school.

“Stars are just like us,” Garner joked (above) while warning Jimmy Fallon what may be in store for his own family. “We all got lice. It’s making me itchy just to talk about it.”
Garner — who can currently be see in theaters in Jason Reitman‘s drama “Men, Women & Children” — says she had to regularly comb oil through her hair, which led to an awkward encounter with George Clooney at a party Affleck took her to while she still had an oily head of hair.

“The first person I see is George Clooney, and I’d never met George Clooney,” Garner said. “I can see that he smells me, but he’s trying to be polite. So anyway, people keep asking why we weren’t at George’s wedding, and we were ‘both working,’ but I think he didn’t want licey there.”
While visiting the NBC late night show, Garner also joined Fallon, drummer Questlove and comedian John Mulaney for a game of Catchphrase. Watch the segment, below, to see who won.
