I have added images from the Diplomacy, Development, And National Security Hearing held this week that Jennifer and Violet attended in Support of Ben.
US Weekly has an article highlighting Ben Affleck’s speech at the Diplomacy, Development, And National Security Hearing and what he had to say about his wife during the speech.
Proud husband! Ben Affleck was largely all business on Thursday, March 26, when he addressed a Senate Appropriations State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Subcommittee in Washington, D.C. on aid in Africa, but he took a moment to gush about his famous wife.
Discussing his work in the continent, the Oscar winner, 42, nodded to his love Jennifer Garner and her own charity efforts. He was prompted by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who worked on the push for foreign aid in Congo as well.
“Jennifer and Violet are very proud,” Graham said, nodding to Garner, also 42, and the couple’s daughter Violet, 9, who were both in attendance. “Very well done.”
Affleck took the chance to focus on his loved ones, rather than himself, highlighting Garner’s years of work with the Save the Children foundation.
“In our family, my wife does extraordinary work with early childhood education in the United States and the Appalachians and West Virginia and Kentucky and the central valley of California is something she cares deeply about,” Affleck said of his wife of nearly 10 years. “She’s extremely effective at it. And we’re all very very proud of her and impressed.”
“I do work in the Congo,” the Gone Girl actor continued. “We see that as a microcosm of what this government can be. We can do both. We can do all of these things. We can apply our values to our relatives, to our neighbors be they outside our national borders or be they within. I believe that’s what America is.”
Affleck had another light moment when he made reference to the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, acknowledging Senator Patrick Leahy, who is a huge fan of the superhero and has made cameos in two Batman movies.
“I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge my costar in Batman,” Affleck joked. “[Your] role is marginally smaller than mine, but I understand that you are quite good.”
Added a ton of new images of Jen at the New York City premiere of her film Danny Collins!
Here is the first picture of Jennifer at the New York City Premiere of Danny Collins!
Here are clips from Jen’s inteview on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon when she stopped by to discuss her new film, Danny Collins!
The actress talks to TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie about “Danny Collins,” her new movie with Al Pacino, and gets teary-eyed discussing her spread in Southern Living magazine, where she’s photographed with her sisters and mom.
People highlighted Jennifer’s favorite role … Mother. Jennifer shared at the press conference for her film Danny Collins about being a mom to her three kids.
When in need of some life advice, there’s one gal pal that Jennifer Garner can always be sure to rely on: Reese Witherspoon.
“If I run into Reese, she and I have so much to talk about,” Garner, 42, told PEOPLE at the press day for her new film Danny Collins, in which she stars alongside Al Pacino. “We’ll be on the street corner and just be like, ‘What do you do about this, and how did you handle this?’ ”
She continues, “I’m so grateful for that very specific kind of friend.”
A typical juicy conversation that takes place between the two hard-working Hollywood mothers may specifically consist of whether or not a role is worth (temporarily) departing from motherhood.
“I have such a big thing to balance [jobs] against that it has to be something I love so much,” Garner says of feeling “surprised,” but grateful every time that she gets handed a new offer and has to think about calling in the in-laws for some long-term babysitting.
While stationed at home and playing her favorite role as mommy, Garner makes it a point to keep her routine consistent.
“I make sure everyone has notes for their lunch box every day and [figure out] who’s having something special, and deciding who I read extra to [in the] morning,” Garner says of how a morning plays out with her and husband Ben Affleck‘s children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 5, and Samuel, 3.
And, coming up on 10 years of marriage, being a wife is something that she sure excels in, as well.
“I’m going straight to New York from here, and then I’m going to visit Ben [on set in Atlanta to] make sure he’s good,” Garner says about her special trip to see Affleck, 42, while filming his new role in The Accountant.
She adds, “It’s just what you do [as a mom].”
From an actress to a mother and a room mom to a Girl Scout troop leader, there’s not much that Garner hasn’t tried.
“I’ve been the room mom for pre-school and kindergarten this year, and I’m the Girl Scout troop leader for third grade,” Garner shares. “When I’m home, I dive in, [and] I try to Betty Crocker it up as much as I can.”
And when the going gets tough, the actress gets going. “It just happened the other day where I was like, ‘I think I’m ready to be on set and talk to grownups,’ ” Garner jokes. “Send Batman in.”
Jen, Al Pacino, Christopher Plummer and Annette Benning all talk about their new film Danny Collins.
