Quote Of The Day: Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner was awarded the Female Star of the Year Award at CinemaCon last night. When she accepted her award, she shared her mother’s reaction to the news.

“I told my mom the other day I was getting this award . . . and I was excited and feeling proud and thought she was going to be proud, and then there was this pause on the other end of the line. She said, ‘Jennifer, do these people know you haven’t worked in the last year?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I feel they probably know what I’ve been up to. I haven’t stepped foot on a set. You are correct, mom.’

“She said, ‘Can they take this back? Because every time I talk to you, you are breastfeeding, you are running car pool, you are on the library committee — you are not acting!’ I said it’s not all about the now, it’s things you’ve done in the past or in the future, and she was like, ‘Honey, you have a weird job.'”

LOL! It sounds like that’s how it is as an actress: when you’re working, you’re working long hours, but then you have a lot of time off when you can be a mom. This award is a great way to get Jennifer back in the spotlight, though, since she has two movies coming up: ‘Butter’ (assuming it got a distribution deal) and ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green.’
