The 13 Going on 30 actress told Greg: "We have kids the same age in the same school," before gesturing to James and continuing: "We have kids in the same school… I seem to be the center of the schools."

She continued to explain that she had a 'mom fail' that involved emailing all of the parents at her school - including Greg - while joking about her kids to their coach.

She said: "I had a mom fail… we have kids who do the same activity and I emailed the coach one weekend kind of being funny about my kid saying, 'Well this one seems to be getting a little whomped this weekend, what does that mean for tomorrow morning?' I thought I was being funny, I have wonderful kids, they do really well, they're great - and it was the first time in my life that I replied all."

Admitting that she was mortified by the mishap, she asked Greg if he remembered the email, and the actor joked: "I do remember this. I remember thinking, 'Jennifer Garner is a raging lunatic, sweet enough but I had no idea!' I’ve done it before and hit the 'all reply', not as bad as this… I didn't even really look at it, there was no judgment of Jennifer Garner."
