Jennifer Garner shares what the end of summer means for mums in funny parenting meme
The 'Peppermint' actress recently shared a parenting meme on Instagram that may sum up some of the feelings of parents as kids go back to school on the last day of summer.
Mother-of-three Jennifer Garner knows exactly how parenting feels like - no not the glamorous perfect image that some of you may have, but the real struggle of keeping things together. The 'Peppermint' actress recently shared a parenting meme on Instagram that may sum up some of the feelings of parents as kids go back to school on the last day of summer.
The actress shared side by side pictures with the caption, "#backtoschool," "#iwillmissthembut" and "#godblessteachers". One photo showed her laughing and the next of her covered in fake blood from the sets of her new action flick, 'Peppermint.'
In the film, she plays Riley North whose life turns upside down after her husband and daughter are killed in a drive-by shooting by members of a cartel. After the killers walk free owing to corrupt officials on the cartel's payroll, she takes matters into her own hands and seeks vigilante justice against those who destroyed her life.
In a recent interview with ET Canada, the actress also said that her kids would actually not be watching the film. "They are too little," the actress said, adding that they don't really watch any of her movies. "Not very much. I think they want me to be their mom."
The film also stars John Gallagher Jr. as Carmichael, John Ortiz as Moises, Method Man as Agent Barker, Richard Cabral, Annie Ilonzeh as Inman among others. In the United States and Canada, 'Peppermint' will be released alongside 'The Nun' and 'God Bless the Broken Road', and is projected to gross around $8 million in its opening weekend. It is set to hit theatres on September 7.
Her three kids - Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6 are from her previous marriage with actor Ben Affleck. She is super tight with her kids, as we saw recently when she stepped on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to receive her star. This was a rare public appearance of the four of them together. During the ceremony, Garner gave special shout-outs to her kids and they cheered her on.
"For my children, when you walk over this star, I want you to remember first of all that I love you and that this is about hard work and good luck and not a whole lot else," Garner told her kids from the podium.
"You define me, not this wonderful spot on the pavement," the 46-year-old said before adding, "Also, for the record, don’t spend too much time on Hollywood Boulevard. A special shoutout to my niece and nephew, who are missing their first days of schools to be here today," Garner said. "In the Garner family, fame matters more than education," she quipped. She also said that she felt absolutely elated at moving into such an "a lovely, nice neighborhood," she said.
