Jennifer Garner expressed her thanks to ET on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night for supporting the “No Kids” paparazzi crusade she and other Hollywood stars have been fighting for.
Jennifer said, “[ET] led the way and I cannot tell you how much I thank you, my family thanks you, my kids thank you. Because of you all taking the stand and saying, ‘You know what, this is gross,’ everyone has fallen in line and it is just going to change everything for my kids and I can’t thank you enough.” Garner goes on to say, “It was so out of hand … I told my daughter, maybe someday people might not know what she looks like. My kids were so excited to think of that because they don’t want this at all and I don’t want it for them, so I’m thrilled for them. I love you for it ET.”
Jennifer has been one of the most outspoken celebs when it comes to paparazzi harassing the children of stars to take pics, campaigning the California Legislature to pass laws protecting kids.
Jennifer is a presenter tonight at the Academy Awards and we have the first pictures of her on the red carpet. She wore a fringe gown designed by Oscar de la Renta.

I am so excited about this! This is not directly about Jennifer or her career but it is about a topic that Jennifer has been lending her voice to so I wanted to share.
One of the most popular online celebrity blogs has started a No Kids Policy on their site! Thank you JustJared.com!
Effective immediately, JustJared.com and JustJaredJr.com will be enforcing a #NoKidsPolicy, which means we won’t be publishing unauthorized photos or videos of celebrities’ children who are not public figures themselves.
Here’s a little recap of how we came to this decision: Last August, Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry championed a paparazzi bill that was signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown to impose tougher penalties on photographers who harass children of public figures. While enacting this bill was a step in the right direction, kids are still being intimidated, harassed, and stalked.
Recent discussions I’ve had with actresses Blake Lively, Jaime King, and Kristen Bell prompted me to take the next step at Just Jared by suspending the use of unauthorized photos of celebrities’ children throughout our sites. What does that mean for JJ readers? We won’t be posting photos of children of public figures without consent. All of the paparazzi shots of kids playing at the park, catching a flight at the airport, and walking to school will be off limits. Exceptions to the rule include consensual photos like public figures with kids on the red carpet, at sports games and concert venues, and pictures shared directly via social media.
I’d personally like to thank each and every one of you for your support throughout the years. Some of you have been loyal readers even before I launched JustJared.com in 2005! Yes, it’s been that long.

Jennifer has been announced as one of the presenters for the Academy Awards on Sunday!
Starpulse shared this article where Jen shared how hard it was to go back to work after having her children.
Jennifer Garner was “emotional” about going back to work so soon after giving birth.
The 41-year-old actress – who has children Violet, eight, Seraphina, five and 23 month old Samuel with her husband Ben Affleck – found it tough starring in Oscar-nominated drama ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ while she was still nursing her young son, and was anxious about having to keep people waiting on set so she could feed him.
She told Radio Times magazine: “I was very nervous – it’s hard to leave your baby at home and go to work. And I was a nursing mum, so I was extra emotional about it. By, by the end, it made me remember how much I like my job and that I have to keep things more in balance.
“I’ve nursed each of my babies and I’ve worked during that first year of having them. So, if we talk brass tacks here, that means I’ve had to work with a pump and feed the baby at lunch. I’m versed in how to say, ‘In about ten minutes I’m going to need to disappear’, but on this movie we moved so quickly, there was never time.
“So everyone had to sit and wait for me, which made it emotional because I hated making a crew wait, but I couldn’t start weaning my baby just because of a movie.”
The ’13 Going on 30′ star admits her children only have a basic understanding of what their parents’ careers involve because they’re too young.
Jennifer said: “They’ve always had some kind of sense of it. My daughter turned two while I was doing a play in New York, and if you asked her what I did she’d say, ‘She has her hair and make-up done and takes bows on stage.’ That’s because I’d put her down for a nap during matinees and she’d wake up just in time for curtain call.”
