Jennifer Garner: Upside Down Seraphina!

Jennifer Garner: Upside Down Seraphina!

Jennifer Garner gets playful with daughter Seraphina at a park on Saturday (October 2) in Brentwood, Calif.

The 38-year-old actress high-fived her older daughter Violet, 4, and even turned Sera upside down!

Jen and 20-month-old Seraphina watched Violet practice soccer from the sidelines.

At one point, Violet appeared sad and upset, but after a mother-daughter chat off the field, she seemed to cheer up!

On Thursday, Jen attended Variety‘s 2nd Annual Power of Women Luncheon, where she was recognized for her work with Save the Children, which works to create positive, lasting change for disadvantaged kids.

    Uh… Just Jared, that’s Seraphina… not Violet. Come on guys, pay attention!

  • Rockstar

    Ben and Jen do absolutely nothing for me, but their kids are pretty adorable. Especially that little Violet. Is she ever not smiling?

    p.s. Robyn Lorkovic – good call! haha

  • ddd

    I never see Ben with his family

  • O’rly

    Child abuse!!!

  • from here

    wrong description. . . oh im sure Ben is very busy doing business matters.. . not necessary we have to see them all together all the time. Atleast grandma was with them . . nice to see them today. .. the kids reli cute… i love their smile

  • Cheyenne

    Beautiful family so cool and laid back, you were never know they are rich and famous. I love it when celebs keep it real and don’t flaunt their wealth or showboat. So refreshing.

    Looks like fun :)

  • rocknmovies

    Ben is out of town filming the new Terence Malick movie, in Arizona if I am not wrong.

    And LOL at saying it’s Violet upside down, when it’s Seraphina.

  • http://yahoo.com s

    I <3 this family! :)

  • Kelly

    cute

  • karen

    Well Ben’s movie is out…so no need to hang out with the family..

    Garner seems like a good mom… well we have enough pictures of her and her daughters to make a family album..

    But she always looks so dirty and unkempt. I get she wants to be the “good mother” but why does she always look like she just needs a bath. And she like all the celeb mothers have help. We see pics of the nanny. So really. Fix yourself up a bit.. maybe then your husband will want to spend time with you and the girls outside of promoting his film..

    a bit harsh.. but still the truth.

  • julliett.

    Maybe Violet is sad because she is NEVER wearing the right cloths or shoes for soccer..

  • yaya

    that’s her younger daughter. the shoes are yellow….

  • ALady

    She looks super clean. Overall too. Torn jeans or not. Very often wearing her hair freshly washed and wet.

  • sunny

    Obviously most of you are not moms and therefore don’t understand when you see a woman taking care and loving her children. Ben is such an absentee husband and father what does it matter what he is doing. She, on the other hand has her priorities straight, she is a natural beauty and when she is dressed up – a knockout. Any man in the real world would be lucky to have such a beautiful wife and loving, committed mother to his children. Those children were blessed in at least one half of the parental unit.

  • Jay

    There were pictures of Ben with his girls just last week.

  • julliett.

    OH give me a break.. working mothers don’t have to look like sh*t to prove that they are good parents. And yes she sometimes looks good on a red carpet.. but walking out of the house with wet hair and torn jeans does not mean she is a better parent then the other moms that take a minute to at least dry and brush their hair.. She lives in a multi million dollar home. And I am quite sure that home has a big yard. YET she is ALWAYS in my opinion parading her kids at the park o show what a great hands on mother she is.

    That myth that every working mother has to look haggard and tired is a lie. I have friends who are parents; working in the home and outside and they manage to at least put on clothes that look clean and run a brush through their hair. Garner has help and she is not without resources. Just like she has help watching the kids when she is at an event then she can have them watch the kids while she cleans herself up. So sick of the 50′s mentality of what makes someone a good parent.

    YES I think she is hands on and loving.. her children look healthy and happy.. but please she is no better then the other mothers out there.

    @sunny I agree about Ben.. but Jen is not the only parent that is devoted and caring to her children.. the difference is we see her and her children together on a daily basis.. other parents doing what she does on camera not so much.

    and funny no one scream about her pimping her kids.. NO I don’t think she is but double standard much.. YEAH

  • BOSTON

    THE WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL UPGRADE!

  • Ben’s mom

    She is the Jennifer I welcomed into the Affleck family, I never approved of that other one.

  • I know

    You can tell by the orange shoes, that that is Seraphina, Jen has turned upside down.

  • erica

    That’s Seraphina she’s turning upside down jared

  • erica

    @julliett.:

    That’s dumb to suggest that because she takes her kids out she’s pimping them. Give me a break. What is she supposed to do? Keep them locked up in the yard? Keeping her kids isolated so that they’re weird and unsocialized would make her a bad parent. Get a life.

  • raena

    their family is perfect! so funny that both kids have blonde hair, and both parents have brown hair haha. oh genetics. :)

  • glammie

    @julliett.:

    I’m not sure what you mean by “parading”? When she takes her children to the park … introduces them to organized sport … helps them to develop social skills, she is “parading” her children? There are always parents at the park with their kids — what are they doing? Are they parading them too? I took mine out there yesterday with his new bike – was I flaunting my wealth?

    It’s not her fault that she is houded by the media and that people without enough to do in their own lives, are compelled to look at the photos.

    In *my* opinion, Ms. Garner is making the best of what must be a difficult situation. She has to endure the petty criticism of people who have no idea what they are talking about … people who evaluate an entire life by a random selection of snapshots .. as if a photo taken of a random moment at a park is indicative of a woman’s femininity or or her grooming or how full her heart is of love for her children or the state of her marriage … or their absence in that same photo means they are a negligent parent.

    Trust … I have a far better opinion of Jen Garner from these photos than I do of the people who make unkind, uncalled for and uninformed remarks in regards to them. And, yes, I mean YOU.

  • kiara

    its seraphina , look at the orange shoes.

  • http://W.com Kaz

    Yeah seraphina cute

  • lauren

    ok

  • Lena

    Come on folks, Violet goes to the park (web sites even tell everyone where it is — very uncool) every Sat for soccer practice. The papz know this. Ben has been with them every Saturday except when he had to be out of town with work. Many families (mine included) have one parent who has to travel for work. Doesnt mean that they are absentee parents, it means they have to work. GIve them a friggin break! They are the most normal family around and everybody is interested in them THATS why the papz always follow them everyday and not other celeb families. They also have a more normal schedule than other celeb families who usually home school and let the “help” take them to parks & such.

  • really

    just adorable!!!

  • Panger

    @julliett.:

    Parading? For normal people, it’s called GETTING OUT OF YOUR CAR. For celebrities doing the same thing, it’s called “parading.”

    What would you suggest, that Garner buy a private park and soccer field and hire extras to look like “normal people”, so she can go outside in a pair of jeans and not be subject to a paparazzo lens and the “parading” accusations?

  • julliett.

    @erica:

    If you read my comment you would have understood the meaning.. I was commenting on the fact that when other celebs are seen with their kids it is called pimping.. Jennifer is seen on a daily basis yet that double standard is not used. And your statement should apply to all celebs when they are out with their kids doing everyday things.. BUT that is not the case.

    And for you information.. I have a very lovely life.. thanks for the concern.. but it was not needed. @glammie:

    That is my exact point.. that other celebs have the right to be out with their kids.. thing is Garner gets some kind of free pass. And I will look for your passionate defense of other celebs that are attacked all the time for doing what she is doing. AND JUST LIKE YOU HAD YOU OPINION.. I HAVE MINE

    But I doubt that will be the case. PEOPLE LIKE YOU have set opinions and are so narrow minded that they can’t step back and see the other side..

    OH YEAH THAT WAS DIRECTED TOWARDS YOU!!

  • Veeters

    Good Grief! If Jen dressed up in some kind of “cute mom” wardrobe, aka Boden or J. Crew, it would give the paparrazzi even more reason to follow her everywhere. I think she’s trying to say to them, “move on, i’m not gonna look sexy with my kids, go to my premieres and I’ll turn on the movie star charisma. Cover that stuiff, not my kids.” She’s a great mom and if she wanted pararrazzi attention she would be wearing makeup, short skirts, heels etc and then the jerks in this thread would have something new to b*tch about. It could not be more clear that Jen’s priority is her kids and as Harrison Ford once said, the only thing an actor owes the public is an excellent performance and their money’s worth at a movie or play. Beyond that, they get to live their life for themselves.

  • KARLA

    I LIKE THIS FAMILY—–BUT, PLEASE —–BEN, —-PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE PAPS. THEY ARE ON OUR FACE EVERY SINGLE DAY, NOW. THEY ARE BECOMING LIKE THE CRUISES USED TO BE . THAT IS JUST HORRIBLE. THE GIRLS ARE DRESSED TOO GIRLY FOR THE PARK. HOW STUPID IS THAT?

  • Katie always front and centred

    FYI I JEN IS LIKE HER LAST NAME SHE GARNERS TAKING CARE
    OF HER KIDS ALONE OR WITH A NANNY..BEN AND HER AGREED
    THAT THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED TOGETHER
    WITH THE KIDS..AND JEN LIKES TO TAKE CARE OF THEM HERSELF
    AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PIX YOU DO NOT NEED 2 PARENTS
    WHERE IS ANGIE WHEN WE SEE SO MUCH OF BRAD WITH THE
    KIDS..EH..DO YOU THINK HE PAID 100 PAPS TO BE SNAPPED COMING OUT OF A STORE..What about Katie Holmes she must
    call the paps on speed dial even Suri calls ..!!! As if …P.S Ben does
    not call the paps never did..!!! No one does.. but maybe Brad Pitt
    and Katie Holmes ..so please Katie don’t call just stay home..

  • WHY NOT STOP ALL KIDS …

    Ben is in Oklahoma making a movie …So that is why he is not there..
    As for the reason why Jen likes to take care of the kids is because
    she is A MOTHER…!!! NOT A PAP PIMP

  • KARLA

    # 31—Katie always front and centred (sp)- WAKE UP SWEETHEART-BRAD AND ANGIE DO NOT NEED—-AND I REPEAT —- DO NOT NEED THE PUBLICITY. ON THE OTHER HAND, BEN AND JEN NEED ALL THE PUBLICITY THAT THEY CAN GET, BECAUSE BOTH JEN AND BEN ARE MEDIOCRE( DLISTERS) THE REASON BEN’S MOVIE SEMI SCORED 16. MILL ON THE 1ST. WEEK, WAS BECAUSE ==IT DID NOT HAVE REAL COMPETITION. YOU PUT THIS MOVIE—AGAINST INCEPTION OR SALT(WITH REAL A-LISTERS LIKE ANGIE AND LEO) AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BLOWN OUTOF THE WATER. SO, PLEASE DO NOT, NOT –COMPARE ANGIE AND BRAD TO ANY DLISTERS LIKE BEN AND JEN. CAPRICE

  • YES YOU KARLA…

    Well Karla Ben’s movie has done well at the box office. ..as if any
    person who is not doing well would CALL THE PAPS.. NO ONE
    CALLS THEM… Ben is not a D lister.. by any means.. just because
    I said that Brad must call the paps for 100 to show up.. means the
    same as you dear KARLA WHO REPEATLY SAYS THAT JEN MUST
    CALL THEM…As if any celebrity calls the paps… It was a joke
    AND KARLA START E MAILING ALL THE WEBSITES AND TELL THEM
    THAT YOU DO NOT WISH TO HAVE JEN AND BEN ON THE WEBSITE
    SINCE YOU ARE PERSISTANT ON SAYING THAT THEY ARE D LISTERS…WOW DID YOU ever think that Inception did well because
    of the movie and not Leo Dicaprio…And the studio for Salt were disappointed in the sales figures too which y they are not having
    a part 2./.

  • Doris

    Jennifer and Ben bitch about being photographed all of the time, don’t they have a lawn at home so the children can play soccer????????

  • KARLA

    —–MY DEAR –THE ONE THAT DOES NOT WANT TO POST HIS-HER NAME—-HAHAHAHAHA–UNLIKE HIS FRIEND- MATT- WHO IS AN( A LISTER )—– BEN IS A ( D-LISTER.) HE CANNOT CARRY A MOVIE BY HIMSELF. END OF STORY. HE IS A BLAH-BLAH- ACTOR, HE IS NOW DOING ENSEMBLE FILMS—-HOW FUNNY IS THAT? AS FOR HIS WIFE— THERE’S NOTHING IN MOVIES FOR HER. MAYBE SHE COULD GO BACK TO TV, LAND. SAD, BUT TRUE. —-THE PAPS JUST DON’T SHOW UP EVERY DAY, OF THE WEEK. WHEN SHE-THEY ARE OUT THERE. UNLESS, SOMEBODY CALLS THEM. HAHAHA

    AS FOR SALT, WHO KNOWS , –MAYBE THERE’S GOING TO BE SALT-2. — . YOU DON’T KNOW, AND I DON’T KNOW. NEITHER ONE OF US KNOWS—-I DEAL WITH REALITY., AND YOU MY DEAR DO NOT.

    Parading? Come on guys, Jen is about as low key as it gets. If you want parading, try J.lo.

  • Sam

    I’m thinking soccer is not for young Miss Violet! She seems happier in pictures after ballet in her tutu! Guess it’s always good to try different things to see what kids like, but I’m betting Vi is no soccer star. Cute little girls and super mom, just hanging with her babies at the part, Beautiful.

  • Terri

    I rarely see J Lo with her kids. That’s parading?

    Violet and Seraphina are so adorable. I wish we saw Jen a little more put together, but that’s obviously not her focus anymore, her kids are.

  • Cheyenne

    I can’t believe we are still talking about this lovely lady and her beautiful little girls. Somebody sure is adding to their popularity by constantly posting about this family.

    One thing for sure, they are one drop dead gorgeous family. Mom and dad and both girls could not be any cuter if they dried. And the fact that they don’t try is what makes them even more adorable.

    Karla, please stop screaming, your point is not well taken even when shouted from the rooftop. Sorry. Brad and Angelina are not the only celebs making movies and money. There is room for lots of stars in the sky and on the big screen.

  • Cheyenne

    Thanks Jared. These are cute pics however like some have stated before, that is Seraphina (the 20 month old) that Jen has turned upside down. Both girls are so cute and look just like Jen, right down to their adorable dimples.

  • KARLA APOLIGIZES ….

    Well Karla Ben’s movie the Town beat all of Matt Damon Movies this
    year!!! Matt only made 39 million compared to Ben’s 69 million..

  • laverdadduele

    Yet another picture of Jen and the girls with no Ben in sight. I won’t be surprised when they announce the divorce.

  • Dot

    Violet seens like a spoilt indulged little brat. She can’t even play soccer without her mother on the field holding her hand. Jennifer is the only parent out on the field with her spoilt brat.

  • Lissy

    I love the Afflecks. So down to earth and real. and the girls are ADORABLE

  • HK

    Jen looks so fresh, she is such an attractive pretty lady. And the girls are super cute. Violet is a very beautiful little girl. FYI Violet was crying because the paps got way too close to them and she got scared. They had to call the police to take them away. Read the story on Zimbio.
