Jennifer jokes about what she and Ben do to avoid private leaked pictures on internet.
“How does Jennifer Garner do it?
This year alone, the actress starred in the moviesDraft Day,Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day andMen, Women & Children (the latter two are in theaters this fall). Her 42-year-old husbandBen Affleck, meanwhile, spent the better part of 2014 shootingBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the Detroit area. The actor is also about to begin promotional duties forGone Girl, adapted fromGillian Flynn's best-selling novel. How do the spouses of nine years find the time for each other, let alone their kids,Violet, 8,Seraphina, 5, andSamuel, 2?
"When we had our first, we had only been together a year. We were babies. It happened so fast, I hardly even remember what we were like before the kids got here," Garner, 42, recalls inInStyle’s October 2014 issue. “Now we’re just starting to go away for a night here and there.”
"You go through phases," she continues. "You can’t expect to be courted all the time, and I don’t want to court him right now—I don’t have the energy! But we’re definitely in a very mindful place where we’re making an effort to be together, do things at the same time, and be loving."
Garner filmed most of this year’s movies in 2013, meaning she was able to spend more time at home with the kids while Affleck was on location as the Caped Crusader. "I keep things rolling and foster his connection to the kids. He’ll always make time for them—he screwed up a week of production to take our daughter to her first day of kindergarten—but there’s only so much, practically speaking, that he can do," she says of the downsides that come with being an actor. “I make sure that I am facilitating the most meaning for each kid out of whatever time he has.”
To make life easier, the Daredevil co-stars play to their strengths.
So, who plays bad cop and who plays good cop in the Affleck-Garner household? “For better or worse, I tend to be the one who says, ‘This is what needs to happen.’ I know who wants what lunch, and I’ve done all the school paperwork and filled out the emergency cards. Ben doesn’t even know that stuff exists. He is in charge of laughter. No matter how much I tickle them or toss them or chase them around, it’s not the same. If I’m the slow, steady drumbeat, he’s the jazz,” she says. Still, she’s got him beat when it comes movie roles. “My kids are always saying, ‘Mom, you’re our only hope. Dad does all these grown-up movies,” Garner tells the magazine. “We can’t see Argo or Gone Girl. Batman looks too scary. You have to do things we can see!’”
Garner may be a movie star, but she’s a mom and wife first. "I’m still wiping a bottom, making three meals a day, dealing with sass—and also trying to work. I don’t always do it all well. At bedtime last night my middle child said, ‘I feel like you never have time to play with me.’ I thought, ‘My mom never played with me. I’m trying!’" she tells InStyle. "But you know what? She’s right. So my goal is to play dolls with her all afternoon. I guess I would say for this stage of my life, I’m in the thick of it."
Inside the October InStyle: Jennifer Garner’s Confessions of a Domestic Goddess
In the October issue of InStyle, on newsstands and available for digital download September 19, writer Laurie Sandell got an unprecedented peek into cover girl Jennifer Garner’s life with husband Ben Affleck and their three kids. The following is an excerpt of that insider access.
At 5:45 a.m., while most of Los Angeles still sleeps, Jennifer Garner is bustling around her open kitchen, brewing a much-needed cup of coffee. She and her husband, actor-director and soon-to-be Dark Knight Ben Affleck, share the sprawling ranch house with their kids (Violet, 8, Seraphina, 5, and Samuel, 2). A single glance around the space and you immediately understand what’s No. 1 on their list. Family photos adorn almost every surface, a pint-size backpack lies on a sofa, and the sliding glass doors that lead to the outdoor deck are covered with drawings. “Sorry things are such a mess,” Garner says, gesturing to the many art projects in progress. This is a family home.
Her trainer of more than a dozen years, Valerie Waters, leans against a kitchen counter, waiting to take her famous client (and me) through her daily workout. Clad in a faded blue sweatshirt over a gray tank top and blue leggings, Garner follows Waters out to the long, winding driveway flanked by tall trees—and more than a few tricycles. There, under the dark predawn sky, the actress warms up with a brisk walk, touching the gate that protects her hive, then returns to take a sip of coffee.
The workout proper takes place in her gym, housed in a building across the courtyard. While Garner and I are stretching inside, a figure appears in the doorway: It’s Affleck, tall and ruggedly handsome with morning stubble, wearing a gray hoodie and black nylon gym shorts, a towel slung over his shoulder. “Hey guys, can I crash your workout?” he asks before climbing onto the elliptical machine.
Garner turns to me and jokes, “How bummed are you that you thought you were just working out with me, and now you have to exercise in front of Ben Affleck?”
some day I will make a blog of all of the fantastic costumes they make Jennifer Garner wear in Alias
