Jennifer Garner is a Tinseltown legacy.
The actress is finally receiving the recognition she deserves after she was bestowed a Hollywood star on the Walk of Fame in LA.
Digging into her Alias roots, Jen is set to make a huge comeback with her new leading role in the action movie Peppermint.
While many people know who Ben Affleck's ex-wife is, you may just need a refresher as to why she's so bloody amazing!
Jennifer Garner is the proud mum to her three kids Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6, who she shares with her ex Ben Affleck.
The starlet has always been very honest about motherhood.
Talking to Us Magazine, she admitted that it is hard to balance work and being a parent.
"There's an internal battle. I need to work, I need to work, I need to work, and I need to be home with my kids and the kids win."
"It's about getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap, cooking dinner . . . I live my life at these two extremes. I'm either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress."
Speaking to Southern Living, Jen admitted her mum helped her with her parenting techniques.
"It's really important for my kids to see that everyone doesn't have the lives they see in Los Angeles. That doesn't reflect the rest of the world. I want them to grow up with the Southern values I had—to look at people when they say hello and to stop and smell the roses. If I could do half as good a job as my mum did, I'd be pretty happy."
It's not just her mama who inspires her, "My sisters both are working mothers. I understand that my being an actress as well as being at home isn't some heroic thing. That doesn't mean it isn't confusing or difficult—especially that question of how you find a balance."
Jennifer Garner was born in Houston, Texas, on April 17, 1972.
The 46-year-old is the middle child to William John and Patricia Garner and has two sisters, her older Melissa Wylie and younger Susannah Carpenter.
Celebrity Net Worth have accumulated Jennifer Garner's net worth to be $60 million (approx $81,567,000.00 AUD).
The Hollywood actress has made her fortune through numerous roles include the lead in the TV Series Alias to her film blockbusters like Suddenly 30 and The Kingdom.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were married from 2005 till 2015.
The couple's divorce is yet to be finalised with Jen " wanting to give Ben the time and opportunity to work on his health and sobriety."
In fact, it was Jen who recently staged an intervention for her estranged husband, encouraging him to check into rehab.
Despite their breakup, the exes have remained amicable for their three children.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, she shared, "It's not Ben's job to make me happy. The main thing is these kids—and we're completely in line with what we hope for them. Sure, I lost the dream of dancing with my husband at my daughter's wedding."
"But you should see their faces when he walks through the door. And if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly, then you're going to be friends with that person."
And it's clear she loves how good of a father Ben is to their kids.
On Father's Day, she shared, "Our kids are lucky to have a dad who looks at them the way you look at them and loves them the way you love them."
In a heartbreaking interview with Vanity Fair, Jen shared, "It was a real marriage. It wasn't for the cameras. And it was a huge priority for me to stay in it. And that did not work."
"I didn't marry the big fat movie star; I married him," she reflected.
"And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can't have these three babies and so much of what we had. He's the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He's the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He's just a complicated guy. I always say, 'When his sun shines on you, you feel it.' But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it's cold. He can cast quite a shadow."
Last year she spoke of how important Ben is to her and their family.
"We will all be together for Thanksgiving. I love Ben."
"We will be together with our kids and give them a special Christmas. We get along really well and it's not an issue. We are friends; we can manage it."
