During Sunday night’s Oscars, Jennifer Garner appeared to have come to either a momentous conclusion or an approaching existential crisis.

As the camera landed on her in the audience while happily applauding away, she slowly stops clapping and looks as if perhaps she’s just worked everything out.

The video went viral, of course, with many weighing in on what must have been going through her mind at the time.

Pleasingly, Jennifer has now weighed in herself, offering three options.

Taking to Instagram Story, she narrated over the meme: “Congrats to The Shape of Water! Maybe I should date a fish?”

“Hey Jimmy Kimmel, what’s in your wallet? Wait, where’s my wallet?” came another (she advertises Capital One credit cards in the US).

And finally: “Can’t wait to work with Lena Dunham! Wait did I sign a nudity waiver?”

Way to handle one’s own meme there, Jennifer. Respect is due.
