Jennifer Garner had a busy day of running errands around LA on Friday, both by herself and with her younger daughter, Seraphina Affleck. Jen stepped out solo in the morning before bringing Seraphina along for a grocery store stop. The actress is back on the West Coast after a quick jaunt to NYC where she rubbed elbows with Whoopi Goldberg, Hillary Clinton, and her close friend and former Alias costar Victor Garber. Jennifer spoke at the first-ever benefit gala for Save the Children earlier this month and garnered lots of buzz when, in her speech, she referred to the former secretary of state as "our next president." Jen also had her little ones, Violet and Samuel, in tow for the trip and spent a sweet afternoon riding a carousel with the kids in Central Park.
Jennifer is likely enjoying the bit of downtime before she hits the press trail for Dallas Buyers Club before its Nov. 1 release. Jen premiered the film with her costars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto in Toronto last month, and most recently, we spoke to Jared at the Mill Valley Film Festival about his role as an HIV-positive transsexual woman in the drama, as well as what it was like to finally meet Matthew and Jen out of costume.
