July 28, 2018 Comments Off on Jennifer Garner Tackles the Great Outdoors With Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner in HBO’s ‘Camping’ Camping

Variety shares highlights from the Camping Panel at The Summer TCA Press Tour.

“Camping” was a draw for stars Jennifer Garner and David Tennant even though neither of them are particularly avid about roughing it outdoors.

“This is the best way to camp,” Tennant told reporters on Wednesday during HBO’s portion of the summer Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills. “You get to go home at night and have a shower. … I assumed I would hate camping. I do quite like home comfort and a shower and not smelling. These things are important.”

The eight-episode limited series is based on a British comedy of the same name created by Julia Davis. The “Girls” duo of Jenni Konner and Lena Dunham wrote and directed the series. For all involved, “Camping” was a fun and frothy diversion from more cerebral and intense material they’ve tackled of late.

“You can only play so many psychopaths without taking it home,” Tennant said. “It was lovely to play someone so sweet and open-hearted.”

“Camping” also marks Garner’s return to series TV since her 2001-2006 run on ABC’s “Alias.” The appeal of “Camping” was all about the writing, she said. Garner plays a controlling woman who organizes a weekend camping trip with friends to celebrate her husband’s (played by Tennant) 45th birthday.

“Being in a scene with David and saying, ‘Do you want me to have a dysfunctional pelvic floor for the whole of your birthday weekend,’” Garner said. “Who gets to say this?”

The fact that the series shot in Los Angeles was a big plus for Garner as she juggles her career with raising her three young children. Working on eight episodes of a half-hour series is quite a contrast from the demands of the job when she was starring in “Alias.” “Being the lead in a single-lead 22-episode show — I don’t think I could do it anymore. I don’t know how moms do it,” she said.

Konner and Garner said they would be game to do more episodes of “Camping,” although it is designed to be a limited series.

The series also marks the final entry (for now) from Konner and Dunham as producing partners. The two have decided to go their separate ways. Dunham was expected to take part in the panel via satellite from New York, but was felled by the flu, HBO executives said.

Konner emphasized that the decision to part was an amicable one, driven by their mutual desire to explore other opportunities.

“We feel super lucky to have had eight amazing years together,” Konner said of her partnership with Dunham. “We just want to do different things. There’s no drama to be found there. It’s just work. It’s just about the creative process.”

July 19, 2018 Comments Off on Jennifer Garner Pays Tribute to ‘Army’ of Larry Nassar Survivors After Honoring Them at the ESPYs Events, Images

Jennifer Garner is reflecting on the heroes she helped honor on Wednesday night.

Garner presented the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2018 ESPY Awards to over 100 women who were sexually abused by former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

Sharing three panoramic photographs of the powerful moment when the survivors filled the stage to a standing ovation, Garner wrote, “This is a picture of an army. An army of strength. An army for right. Here are 147 survivors of the unspeakable abuses committed by Dr. Larry Nassar — I was humbled to present them with the #ArthurAsheAward for Courage at tonight’s #ESPYAwards.”

Garner continued, “Seeing these heroes in one place, on one stage blew me away — it takes such courage and strength to tell their stories. Sunlight is the best antiseptic — thank you to the survivors, to Jimmy Pitaro and to @abcnetwork & @espn for putting sexual abuse of minors in the sun — hopefully we won’t be telling this story again.”

During the ceremony at the Microsoft Theater, Aly Raisman, Sarah Klein, and Tiffany Thomas Lopez delivered rousing speeches on behalf of all of the women onstage. Gymnasts in attendance also included Jordyn Wieber and Maggie Nichols.

Raisman, who began her speech by listing the years in which the women revealed Nassar’s abuse and were ignored, noted, “To all the survivors out there, don’t let anyone rewrite your story. Your truth does matter, you matter, and you are not alone. We all face hardships. If we choose to listen and we choose to act with empathy, we can draw strength from each other.”

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, who allowed victims to address Nassar in court and sentenced the disgraced doctor to up to 175 years in prison, was also in attendance at the ESPYs.

Raisman thanked Aquilina during the awards show “for honoring our voices.”

“For too long, we were ignored, and you helped us to rediscover the power we each possess,” Raisman said. “You may never meet the hundreds of children you saved, but know they exist.”

Before closing their group acceptance speech, Raisman had a powerful message for other survivors.

“We may suffer alone,” she said, “but we survive together.”

July 16, 2018 Comments Off on Clips from Good Morning America Guest Appearances, Interview, Videos

This morning Jennifer stopped by Good Morning America and talked about being on instagram, Alias, Once Upon a Farm, her new series Camping, etc.

July 15, 2018 Comments Off on Jennifer Garner on the farm, and away from paparazzi Guest Appearances, Jennifer, Videos

This morning Jennifer was featured on CBS Sunday Morning … here is a clip of the interview for you to enjoy from CBS’s site.

Turns out acting is just ONE of Jennifer Garner’s callings. Conor Knighton has our Sunday Profile:

You may not recall the 1995 Danielle Steel miniseries “Zoya,” Jennifer Garner’s first on-camera appearance (“Freddy and I were married this afternoon – and I’m pregnant!”). But Knighton grew up in her hometown of Charleston, West Virginia, went to the same church, graduated from the same high school. So, he can name every project she has ever done.

“Zoya,” Knighton noted, was front-page news in Charleston. “That was the hugest big deal! That was the hugest deal that ever happened,” Garner laughed.

Her career spans more than two decades from a superhero (“Elektra”) to super awkward (“13 Going on 30”), from critically-acclaimed indie films (“Dallas Buyers Club”), to huge ad campaigns (“What’s in your wallet?”).

But way before she became the center of attention, Garner was your typical middle child in a family of three girls. The daughter of a chemical engineer and a teacher, Garner’s love of performing began on the dance floor. “My mom just put us in dance,” she said. “And I wasn’t as talented naturally as either of my sisters. But I was expressive. They would say, ‘Oh, she’s very expressive!'”

She entered Ohio’s Dennison University as a Chemistry major, but graduated with a BFA in Theater. After four years, she had left her West Virginia accent behind.

“When I went to college, I had a bit of a twang – I sounded kind of mountain-y,” Garner said. “But I loved, loved, loved any play that was just dripping with words, the more words, the better. And it takes a long time to speak with a twang. So, I had it kind of kicked out of me!”

After traveling the country in summer stock theater productions, building sets along the way, Garner started building a small resume of television appearances. A guest spot on the TV series “Felicity” caught the attention of writer-director J.J. Abrams, inspiring him to create a role with her specifically in mind: super spy Sidney Bristow on TV’s “Alias.”

It was a role the studio made her fight for … literally.

Garner said, “I went through the Yellow Pages. I looked up the local guy who had the most degrees of black belt. I called him, I went to see him every day, and by the time I had my fifth audition for ‘Alias,’ they said, ‘What can you show us?’ And I said, ‘Well, I’ve learned a couple of forms. I’m already this belt. I can do this.’ And I just stood in the room and did it!”

Knighton said, “I remember there was a summer in college I’d gone to New York, and I’d seen a billboard for ‘Alias,’ with you in an orange wig. And I realized that, ‘Things are about to get really different for her.’ How did that change your life?”

“It changes it in such an instant and enormous way, because it’s startling to become recognizable. It’s startling and shocking,” she replied.

“Alias” made her a star, but nothing could have prepared Garner for the non-stop tabloid coverage that followed her romance with actor Ben Affleck.

“Well, there was a solid decade where there were five or six cars minimum, and easily up to 15 or 20 on the weekends, outside of my house at all times,” Garner said. “And looking back on that, I really feel the stress of it. I really – I could cry, talking about it.”

After ten years of marriage, the A-List power couple who have three children together announced their separation, in 2015. They filed for divorce last year, but …

“The public was, and still is, obsessed with your private life,” Knighton said. “What has that been like for you, going through a divorce and having every moment of that played out on the cover of these magazines?”

“What I think that I’ve learned is that scrutiny in your private life puts a pressure to make something happen,” she said. “You feel a pressure to hurry up and get married, ’cause you think that’ll end the Are they engaged? Are they not? [talk]. And that’s true in the reverse, as well. You know, if there is any inkling of trouble, or if the tabloids decide there’s trouble, it can create trouble.

“But to be honest, public scrutiny, everyone says, ‘Oh, you’ve had to go through this in public.’ The public isn’t what’s hard; what’s hard is going through it.”

“Do you find that you’re able to tune out from all of that? Do you pay attention?” asked Knighton.

“I don’t look at it. I had to really get serious with myself, and say, ‘This is not healthy.’ In the morning you can either be making breakfast for your kids, making their lunchboxes, or you can be getting paparazzi-ready!” she laughed. “And so, you know, I know which way I’m gonna go!”

You won’t find any paparazzi out in Locust Grove, Okla., just east of Tulsa, where Garner recently purchased the farm her mother, Pat, grew up on, and where her Uncle Robert still lives.

“Mama could sure fry a good chicken,” said Pat Garner.

“Yeah, she could. Mom could make a squirrel taste real good!” laughed Uncle Rob.

“Well, that’s saying something!” said Jennifer.

“Wait, is that in theory? Or that’s in practice?” asked Knighton.

“No, no. That’s in practice. We ate squirrels. I will again, if I have to!” said Uncle Rob.

With her uncle’s help, Garner is turning the old family farm into a site to grow produce for Once Upon a Farm, the organic fresh baby food company she recently co-founded. Here they’ll be raising blueberries, kale and persimmons. “Persimmons are native to here. They do real well here,” Uncle Robert said.

When asked why it was important for her to have it on this farm, Garner replied, “First of all, if I had had any idea how happy it would make my mom to be part of bringing this little farm back to life, I would have done it ten times over. But your family just has a connection to the land that has raised them. I wanted the business to be connected to my family.”

Fresh food was a key part of Garner’s childhood: “Mom did not believe in processed food. So, everything we had was homemade. If it was a cookie, it was a homemade cookie.”

Of course, that doesn’t always mean it was eaten. Pat Garner noted that Jennifer was a picky eater, who lived on peanut butter and honey: “And she’ll say, ‘How did you stand me, Mother?'”

Now in her role as Chief Brand Officer, Garner’s goal, she says, is to get the quality of homemade food into the homes of busy parents. “We’re just making an option for moms who might be too busy to make their own fresh food for their kids, that day or ever, and we’re making it fresh from the earth, just at the grocery store,” she said.

Knighton asked, “And is this something that you’d have three meals a day? Or is this, you know, the midday kind of snack and then breakfast, dinner? Or different?”

“It just depends. Babies eat different things at different times. You’ll see some day, Conor!”

“Nachos and milkshakes, right?”

“Yeah, sometimes a baby might have nachos!”

“Okay. I’ll be fine. I’ll be fine.”

“Don’t worry. You’ll learn. I’ll help you when you get there!”

It’s been a busy year for the 46-year-old Garner. In addition to a celebrated turn in the movie “Love, Simon,” Garner is returning to TV. She just wrapped shooting the new HBO show “Camping,” and she’s also back in action in the revenge film “Peppermint” that premieres this fall,

But back in her backyard garden at her Los Angeles home, blueberries are in season. Here, she grows kale and lemons, raises chickens, and keeps bees for honey. It’s food for her own family – her way of connecting to how, once upon a time, she was raised.

Garner said, “It just makes you happy to pick something and eat it.”
