Jennifer Garner Attends The Children’s Defense Fund 19th Annual Los Angeles ‘Beat the Odds’ Awards

Jennifer Garner attended The Children’s Defense Fund 19th Annual Los Angeles ‘Beat the Odds’ Award show held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last night.

This heartfelt event on December 3, 2009 at the Beverly Hills Hotel at 6:30 p.m. will introduce you to five incredible Los Angeles area high school students – Erick, Jonathan, Tracey, Tyree, and Maria – whose inspirational stories make the Los Angeles Beat the Odds Awards program one of the most genuinely moving events in Los Angeles. These “star” young people are being honored for their personal hard work, academic excellence, community service, and perseverance despite the tremendous obstacles they face in their daily lives.

Joining Jennifer were Zoe Saldana, Regina King, Jennie Garth and Conan O’Brien. Always nice to see who gets involved.

Ben Affleck Takes Violet To See Cinderella

Ben Affleck and his mom were seeing taking Violet to a ‘Cinderella’ play at Santa Monica Playhouse in California. What fun! Violet held onto her multicolored teddy while Daddy held onto his little girl.

It looks like Violet even brought her glass slipper. ;)

Meanwhile, Jennifer Garner enjoyed a little pampering at her salon while getting her hair done.

Jennifer Garner Does The School Run

This time, Jennifer Garner brought Seraphina along to pick up Violet from school. Seraphina is adorable: she looks just like her daddy! I just want to give those cheeks a big squeeze :)

But I look at these pictures and realize this is why Jennifer is an actress and I’m not. There is no way I could stop and kiss my baby’s cheeks with a gazillion paparazzi snapping my picture! I’d be running for the indoors- LOL.

Meanwhile, the Boston Herald reports that Ben Affleck is the “talk of the town.” He’s still there filming ‘The Town.’ It must be hard for them to be on opposite coasts like this!

Jennifer Garner Picks Up Violet From School

Those dimples! That smile! What a cutie Violet has grown up to be.

Here’s Jennifer Garner picking up her eldest daughter after school in Santa Monica. I love how both gals are wearing extra long black pants. It’s so much fun to dress up your child similarly to your own style!

Now, all we need to do is get Violet a pair of shades… :)

Quote Of The Day: Jessica Biel

Now we know why Jessica Biel and Jennifer Garner were out having dinner the other night. Jessica shares her “purely platonic thing” for Jennifer.

“My girl crush is Jen Garner at the moment (but) here’s the thing with girl crushes: it’s more of a respect thing. It’s like, you’re beautiful, you’re cool, you look and seem like somebody I would want to hang out with and your career is awesome.”

It looks like Jessica got her wish!

Jennifer Garner And Jessica Biel Dine At Madeo’s Restaurant

Girls night out! Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel were seen leaving Madeo’s Restaurant after having dinner together last night. The pair recently completed the movie ‘Valentine’s Day’ and I guess just hit it off while one set. Nice to see these friends are staying in touch even after the project wrapped. Thankfully, they decided to go to Madeos – a definite paparazzi hotspot.

Who else showed up last night? Emma Roberts! If you were a diner last night, you definitely got your money’s worth.
