Last night Jen attended the premiere of her new film Men, Women and Children in Los Angeles. She wore a top by black & silver Proenza Schouler top with a black skirt.
Here is a clip from one of the press interviews Jen did recently for Men, Women and Children!

Dork Shelf gives us this interview with Jennifer and her director Jason Reitman about their new film Men, Women and Children.
Jason Reitman isn’t nervous about talking about his latest big screen drama, but Jennifer Garner seems a bit daunted being the only actor on hand to talk about the ensemble drama Men, Women, & Children (opening in Toronto this Friday, and expanding across Canada over the next several weeks) on behalf of her incredibly stacked cast.
“When I was told that I was going to be the only actor here with Jason, I’ll admit that I freaked out a little bit in my head,” Garner joked before getting down to business during a sit down with press for the film’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. “There was a part of me that was thinking, ‘Man, I really need Adam Sandler for this.’”
Garner, who plays an overprotective mother trying to shield her daughter from the dangers of the internet in Reitman’s film, has little to worry about. She has a natural rapport with Reitman even when they don’t necessarily agree on the questions they’re answering. Plus, they have a history that works in their favour. Having worked previously on the Oscar nominated Juno, Reitman passed along his adaptation of Chad Kultgen’s novel (co-written with Chloe and Secretary writer Erin Cressida Wilson) on a plane ride while both were on the way to the set of father Ivan Reitman’s previous film, Draft Day, which also co-starred Garner.
The film places the focus on how the connected world of the internet serves to make personal connections in the real world even harder. Garner’s on screen daughter, played by Kaitlyn Dever, has been hiding a crush on a boy she really likes (played by skyrocketing young star Ansel Elgort). The boy she like has quit his star spot on the football team while dealing with his mother’s sudden departure to be with another man. Meanwhile in the same small Texas town, a couple (Adam Sandler and Rosemarie DeWitt), a struggling single mother (Judy Greer) unwittingly exploits her daughter’s attractiveness under the guise that it will help the young woman’s modelling career, and a cheerleader with anorexia (Elena Kampouris) fights to get noticed by her peers.
Reitman and Garner talked to us about the film’s darker elements, how people who seem like villains can actually be sympathetic, and the pros and cons of internet culture.
What was it about Chad Kultgen’s book that made you want to adapt it for the big screen and how did it differ from other adaptations that you have already done?
Jason Reitman: I really fell in love with Chad’s voice as a writer when I read his book Average American Male, and his approach to the internet was very frank and at the same time passed no judgment. What happened with his books, and with anything I ever thought about making into a movie, I thought about how he was, as a writer, responding to questions that he didn’t have answers to. I saw that as an opportunity to approach a lot of things that had been on my mind.
Jennifer Garner: And really the film is only a fraction as frank as the book is. (laughs) The book is SO much darker. I think it really gets to the heart of the darkness some people have within them.

A lot can change after nine years of marriage. Even for A-listers.
“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!” Jennifer Garner says of husband Ben Affleck in InStyle magazine’s October cover story.
“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.”
Add three children into the mix, of course, and that further changes the dynamic.
“When we had our first [child] we had only been together a year. We were babies. It happened so fast, I hardly remember what we were like before the kids got here,” says Garner, 42, of Violet, 8½, Seraphina, 5, and Samuel, 2. “Now we’re just starting to go away for a night here and there.”
She and Affleck, 42, who has been hard at work portraying a brooding, brawny Batman, may be in sync when it comes to making time for overnight dates, but they’ve got decidedly different roles when it comes to parenting.
“I know who wants what lunch, and I’ve done all the school paperwork and filled out the emergency cards. Ben doesn’t know that stuff exists,” says Garner.
“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.”
The October issue of InStyle hits newsstands Friday.
