Jennifer Garner Covers InStyle May 2009

Jennifer Garner looks girl next door gorgeous on the May 2009 cover of InStyle. The 36-year-old actress gives a candid interview to the mag and pokes fun at husband Ben Affleck quite a bit. Check out all the funny things she had to say:

On keeping it real: “I never go nuts with my look. It’s easy to feel like you’ve gone into caricature territory when you do. I’ve found that if you feel like a good, you’re going to look like one.”

On what she’s learned from her mom: “She taught me to proof my yeast with a little bit of sugar–which she learned from her mom, Violet (the name of Jen’s oldest daughter). And she also taught me how to stretch a roasted chicken to make three meals. Though Ben could eat an entire chicken in one sitting.”

On practice making perfect: “These days I wear less makeup than earlier in my career, but I know a lot more about it now.”

On why Violet’s hair looks a little messy sometimes: “Ben will do the school run. He dresses her and does her hair. It’s pretty funny. (makes playful glance) You can always tell when he has been at it, just two random barrettes hanging in there. It’s so sweet.”

    Good for Jen and good for the mag for not being an overdone cover.

    The interview is funny. I guess you can give Ben a pass on Violet’s hair. He is doing a good job in all other areas.

    Happy Birthday to Jen.

    Good luck to Ben. Hoping State of Play pulls in the $ this weekend. 83% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Way to go to Ben, Crowe, and the rest of the cast.

    What a dull interview! Why do we even care about this woman anymore? She’s overhyped.

    Lovely interview with a gorgeous gal. Jen’s fans know how beautiful she is. She purposely does not give the photogs a good shot of her she has said so many times but any ones who knows the real Jen have seen her beauty. She looks great on that cover and is a true and natural beauty inside and out. Funny that Ben does Vi’s hair. How cute is that. Love this family.

    Hey No. 30 sounds so ridiculous! I bet you she’s an ugly duckling who checks on the movie stars. Or a frustrated Ben Affleck fan. Jen is a beauty so natural. She’s so charming and sweet-faced. No wonder girls really envy her beauty and poise and cultured manners. After all she’s a very educated lady. To all the girls who want to make negative comments…pls. pls. pls. save your comments…no one ever believes on your poor judgment.

    Correction pls. It’s no. 6 who I’m referring to not no. 30. I’m so sorry my dear. No. 6 is the UGLY DUCKLING.
