Garner And Vartan's First Public Outing Suffers Fishy End

JENNIFER GARNER and MICHAEL VARTAN's first official outing as a couple was marred on Tuesday night (26AUG03), when the French actor suffered a mild bout of food poisoning.

ALIAS co-stars Garner, 31, and Vartan, 34, attended a Los Angeles event which previewed the new video game based on the hit series and promoted the upcoming release of the show's complete first season on DVD.

But from the moment Vartan took his place at a new conference alongside Garner, producer JJ ABRAMS and several other castmembers, including VICTOR GARBER and RON RIFKIN, his colleagues noticed he wasn't on top form.

He then began "pouring sweat", according to his co-star MERRIN DUNGEY, before he promptly excused himself and dashed off.

Garber, who plays Garner's dad in Alias, drove Vartan home before the after-party began.

He says, "Michael told me he started feeling sick right after he walked on, and thought, 'Oh no, it'll go away,' but if he stayed one more minute it would have been all over. But he'll be fine. Just a bad piece of fish."

Garner and Vartan officially announced their romance earlier this month (AUG03), four months after the actress split from her husband SCOTT FOLEY in April (03).
