Jennifer Garner Talks Careers and Kids With W

Jennifer Garner has the honors of being W's January cover girl. The issue, which hits newsstands on Dec. 22, features a few close and personal shots of the star — check out even more images and her secrets from the shoot. Jennifer opened up to the magazine ahead of the release of Valentine's Day, chatting about her career and life as Mrs. Affleck. Here's more:

  • On deciding to have kids with Ben: "We were together a year, and we just started breeding. We were like, 'Let’s have a baby!' And eight days later . . . "
  • On her mentioning Ben in interviews and his not mentioning her: "Ben asks me, 'How come when I do an interview I manage to keep you out of it completely?' And I’m like, 'Either because you don’t think about me or because boy magazines don’t care about what I make you for dinner. But they should!'"
  • On being away from loved ones while working: "That’s the hardest thing about being on location when it’s not for your own project. When it’s for you, you’re on set with everybody you know, but if not, it’s lonely. I can live with Ben working crazy hours. But I can’t live without girlfriends around to talk about men with! . . . It’s fine if he’s not there; I just need someone to bitch about it to!"



To see what Jennifer has to say about working with Ben, her daily schedule, and more, just


  • On not wanting to work with Ben: "It works between us pretty well the way it is. I don’t know if I want to go to work with him. I’d be like, 'Okay already, you got the shot. Let’s go home!'"
  • On her usual schedule: "Getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap, cooking dinner . . . I live my life at these two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress."
  • On taking the Fall off from work: "It’s hard because I’ve taken so much time off already. But I have this internal battle between, I need to work, I need to work, I need to work and I need to be home with my kids. And the kids win."

I have to agree with No.22, I just don't think that Ben is with the love of his life. I am sure he loves her, I just don't think she is THE ONE. JMHO

I don't care for them at all and I don't really like her but...women trapping men by getting pregnant?really?Actually men should be more insulted by this perception not women.I guess I'll be like that since I want a family but no marriage but if I ever decide to get married after getting pregnant I'll happily accept my role as the evil succubus who lures and traps innocent men... ;)

I've always thought Jen is a beautiful person inside and out - dresses or in jeans. But, these pictures are meh, they don't even look like her.

I love how down to earth she is. You can tell she's smart because she's so articulate and can't help but make you smile along with her! Her&Ben are cute.

I actually think she looks prettier in candid shots, with no make up on, of her taking Violet to school. Sometimes photoshop is not a good thing.

She looks totally unrecognizable--they've shaved her nose with Photoshop in the cover shot and the hair color is dreadful. I used to be a big fan, but I can't imagine being over 30 and letting a magazine strip away my individuality like this, as if I were some no-name starlet with no career or defined personality.

Kinda have to agree with anony #24.. i think Ben is trying to expand his career by being more involved in the back-stage.. more writing, directing, and producing.. I think it's a good way to manage his career.. I really like looking at Jen Garner, especially when she's made up.. so pretty .. i hope the best for their marriage

I think she's always beautiful, and believe the Garner/Affleck clan is one of the few down to earth families in Hollywood. At least, it seems that way from the outside.
