Jennifer Garner Receives Rave Reviews for 'Butter'

Jennifer Garner carries a present while heading to a birthday party with her daughter Violet on Wednesday (September 7) in Brentwood, Calif.

The 39-year-old actress is back in Southern California after a quick trip to Colorado, where she screened her new film, Butter, at the Telluride Film Festival.

“There were big laughs for the small-town butter-carving satire, which might get a year-end release from The Weinstein Company to qualify for awards, especially for the Golden Globes and its comedy category,” Deadline reports. “Garner nails the Michele Bachmann-like character in a way that’s smooth-as-buttah.”

What a beautiful family..!!!

# 2

I hope her acting has improved. I saw her in a play with kevin kline and she was H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E…..sorry jen!

# 3

She is not very good at acting,but seems to be a nice woman who cares about family a lot.

# 4

Celeb Women hang on to horrible men just to stay relevant and keep decent roles coming in even if their acting isn’t A List. I call them A List by association…ala Pinkett, Katie Cruise

Pregnancy certainly does suit her. She looks really good pregnant.

# 7

Band-aid babies are just that, temporary band-aids for rocky marriage. He will leave you sooner or later, you’re just making it harder for yourself and your children by tricking him into getting pregnant.

She is hideous.

She’s not very good actor so I guess it helps in Hollywood to be a likeable person among your colleagues. Let’s hire her, she’s so nice and sweet.

@Julia Thorne: Still obsessing over me huh cow? Get your own user name (What a dipsh!t, no brains at all. Can’t even do simple name choosing.

BTW, Jen is looking more gorgeous since her pregnancy is causing her to glow. No wonder Ben is so smitten with her and his girls. Imagine having three dimpled face cuties smiling at you. What a lucky dog.

That’s why he works so hard to buy her all those diamonds, mercedes SUV and multimillion home. Don’t even get me started on how he rocks her world (between the sheets). No wonder she seems to stay pregnant. Girl is one lucky b!tch.

My name is julia thorne and i have mental problems.

And you know that happened right? Despite an interview in which Ben states they’d been together over a year and were deliberately TRYING to have a baby when they found out she was pregnant? Go find some sex scandal gutter trash starlet that you can fawn over and feel better than by demeaning. You just cant stand that JG is successful, stable, normal and happy, can you? Jealous much??

@Kasey: @Kasey: who tries to have a baby after they just met the person a few months ago? that was a big fat lie.

I Like them! They are so cute and I believe everything is ok in their family!

Oh no!!!!!! @ 09/08/2011 at 2:30 pm

Oh my god, Is she alive !!!!

She is

Oh no!!!!!! @ 09/08/2011 at 2:33 pm

Sorry for double post!!!

Oh my god, she is coming back!!!

She is a very bad actress

@truth does she look miserable? just be happy for them..

Thanks for your article. My partner and i have usually noticed that a majority of people are desperate to lose weight simply because they wish to look slim and also attractive. Even so, they do not constantly realize that there are additional benefits for you to losing weight in addition. Doctors declare that obese people are afflicted by a variety of ailments that can be directly attributed to their own excess weight. The great news is that people that are overweight as well as suffering from a variety of diseases are able to reduce the severity of the illnesses through losing weight. You’ll be able to see a slow but noted improvement in health when even a bit of a amount of fat loss is attained.
