September 6, 2014 Comments Off on Jason Reitman, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Garner talk about today’s youth, or social media, or something Articles

After much delay, the cast of Men, Women & Children finally arrived in the Lightbox’s HSBC gallery for their film’s press conference. Men, women, children—they were all there! Including: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kaitlyn Dever, Ansel Elgort, and co-writer/director Jason Reitman (the son of Ivan Reitman, of Reitman Square and, lately, Montecito fame).

The film deals with children moving through the scary world of social media, and how all those new technologies challenge parents. Naturally, reporters grilled the cast members about how they relate to the “techno-youth of this generation” (whatever that means). “As a parent, you realize there’s stuff out there that’s harmful to everybody,” Sandler said, referring to something other than his own films, presumably. “You just try to protect ‘em.”

The cast also talked about how Reitman, a savvy social-media type, helped direct them through the challenges of pretending to use smartphones, computers and other newfangled technologies. “This technology emerged out of nowhere,” Reitman said. “It’s like the dawn of the automobile, but instead of the Model T we got a Ferrari.”

If one theme emerged, it was how genuinely unfamiliar most of the over-30 cast seemed to be with technology. Garner talked about sending hand-prepared care packages to her nieces and nephews at summer camp, while Sandler also came across like a confused Luddite. “I’m still excited that the Playboy Channel came out!” he said. “That’s not online, but it’s good stuff.”

September 6, 2014 Comments Off on Jennifer Garner Finds The Words For Save The Children Charity

On International Literacy Day on Sept. 8, Save the Children will join forces with actor and artist ambassador Jennifer Garner and other stars to host a day-long virtual word-a-thon and bring attention to the poverty-induced early learning gap.

The event is part of the organization’s newly launched #FindtheWords campaign, designed to give voice to children in poverty who hear 30 million fewer words by age three than children from well-off families.

“Every child has something to say, but 250 million children living in poverty in the United States and around the world don’t have the words they need,” said Jennifer Garner in a recently released public service announcement. An avid supporter of early childhood education, Garner will hold a virtual Q&A during the word-a-thon. “In this back-to-school season, please join me in supporting Save the Children to help kids in need #FindtheWords.”

Leading up to the big day, 30 of the top influencers in the blogosphere have been riling up their audiences and garnering support through Save the Children’s 30 Days/30 Words blogger challenge. To raise awareness, each blogger has written a post highlighting a specific, meaningful word. The 30 posts in 30 days symbolize the 30 million words too many kids miss out on.

“Each and every one of us can make a difference in the lives of all those children who continue to fall behind before they even start school,” said Save the Children president and CEO Carolyn Miles. “We call on all Americans to join us on Sept. 8 in helping shed light on this early learning crisis — we all have a favorite word, so post yours and tag it #FindtheWords.”

Save the Children provides kids from poverty-stricken communities in the United States and around the world with access to books, essential learning support and a literacy-rich environment, setting them up for success in school and a brighter future. The organization’s domestic and global education programs receive support from a variety of corporate funders, including Bulgari, Carter’s, IKEA, Mattel, OshKosh B’gosh, Primrose Schools, PVH, Scholastic and T.J.Maxx.

September 6, 2014 Comments Off on Jennifer Garner Talk About Raising Her Kids in a Technological Era and Ben Affleck’s Buff Body Articles

Like most moms, Jennifer Garner doesn’t have all the answers.

E! News’ Jesse Giddings sat down with the actress Friday at the Toronto Film Festival junket for her new film, Men, Women & Children. Based upon the novel of the same name by Chad Kultgen, the movie examines the sexual frustrations that both teens and adults experience in today’s technological world.

In real life, Garner, 42, and Ben Affleck, 42, are parents to daughters Violet Affleck, 8, Seraphina Affleck, 5, and son Samuel Affleck, 2. How do they know when to let their kids start using technology?

“It’s all such a constant conversation, isn’t it?” Garner marveled. “I think we’re all as a society figuring out what’s appropriate. I mean, we can’t keep in front of what our kids are learning or seeing or using, technology-wise. It’s happening before we can even…We’re all running to catch up, us stupid grown-ups! Thank goodness my kids are little enough that they’re far from having phones or iPads or anything.”

Giddings noted that it was much different when he was growing up, and Garner agreed with that notion. “Maybe you got your hands on a Playboy at some point and you were like, ‘Wow!'” the actress joked.

But back to Affleck!

The actor beefed up for his role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which has been shooting in the Detroit area all summer. Anna Faris recently said she preferred Chris Pratt before he gained muscle for Guardians of the Galaxy, but Garner said she has no preference when it comes to her hubby’s physique.

“He was in crazy shape for The Town,” she said, referring to the film Affleck co-wrote and directed. “I’ve seen him kind of in every different variation, so I’ll take him however I can get him! But as long as this is the guy I’m married to, I’m kind of like, ‘Wow! That’s crazy!’ He looks insane. He’s worked really hard.”

“If he happened to go back to being a normal human, I’d be fine with that, too,” she added.

Men, Women & Children is in limited release Oct. 3 and opens nationwide Oct. 17.

August 20, 2014 Comments Off on Jennifer Garner’s Touching Story of Remembering Children Others Forgot News

Who: Jennifer Ganer, Board Member, Save the Children

Day Job: Actress.

Backstory: As a first-grader in West Virginia, Jennifer Garner was friends with a set of twins who came from a poor family. “When I went to second grade, they stayed in first grade, and when I went to fourth grade, they disappeared,” says the 42-year-old. “I just kept thinking, What happened to those kids?”

Driving Force: Rural poverty is an issue that doesn’t get much play on the gala circuit, but that’s what makes her devotion to the issue so remarkable. “Once you become a mom, you realize that everyone loves their children the same amount,” says Garner, who is featured in the forthcoming PBS documentary series A Path Appears. “So if these moms in Arkansas or Mississippi love their kids as much as I love my kids, how is it fair that they don’t have the help they need to make their kids’ lives as good as they can be?”

Success Story: With Save the Children, Garner has helped bring books, toys, and early-childhood development training to families across the country. On a trip to California’s Central Valley—one of the poorest regions in the U.S.—Garner visited a nonverbal 11-month-old who was given a rubber ball. The boy, who’d never seen a ball before, began flapping his arms and babbling at his mother, who, with gentle encouragement, started talking with her baby for the first time. “It was like a light flicked on,” Garner recalls. “As brick-by-brick as this work is, it can change a kid’s life.”
