Jennifer Garner - May 2008 Self Magazine

Jennifer Garner gives us her patented smile and lets her guard down in the May 2008 issue of Self.

Jen, 36, talks about the love of daughter Violet, 2, husband Ben Affleck, 35, sunscreen and the summer!

On summer being her favorite season: “What’s not to love about summer? I love all the fruit that’s available. I love the farmers’ market. I love that everybody relaxes a bit more. You can feel it in their face and demeanor. People leave work a little earlier.”

On being the sunscreen carrier in the Garner-Affleck family: “Yes, I am, like it or not. As the woman in the family, whether you’re the daughter, sister, wife or mother, you’re kind of in charge of having sunscreen in your bag and making sure your family is protected. And I buy everybody big, floppy sun hats.”

On growing their own food: “Yes! We planted a garden last spring. Half the stuff dies, half the stuff lives, but I’m happy with it. We had huge eggplants! And there’s nothing like fresh tomatoes. And the herbs? Heaven! I grow all different kinds of basil and thyme. I always have rosemary and Italian parsley.”

On everyone thinking she is always pregnant:
“Yes, everyone continues to think that I’m two months pregnant. But at this point, it’s just laziness! I think your body shifts. If I gained weight before, it didn’t go to my stomach. Now it’ll go to my stomach and lower half. Where I used to be flat, now — when I wear a T-shirt — you see a little bit of normal person.”

NOW IF WE CAN ONLY GET BEN AND VIOLET..IT WOULD COMPLETE THIS FAMILY…

IT IS NICE TO KNOW THAT SHE BAKES AND COOKS WITH VIOLET..

AND THAT SHE IS A DOWN TO EARTH WOMAN…BEN MUST BE VERY HAPPY BECAUSE NO ONE HAS SEEN HIM FOR AWHILE NOW..

just gorgeous!

hope we see her out with Ben and Violet soon too.

She is so wholesome and the epitome of the perfect Mommy and Wife. Inspiring role model for young,middle, and old ladies to follow.

Look forward to seeing her out and about with the familia soon.

Perhaps at Farmers Market, strolling the streets in LA, or on a summer vacation.

I would love to see a Mini-Me of Benny boy.
