Jennifer Garner: Ben Affleck & I Aren't Big Fighters

Jennifer Garner shares a laugh with her adorable daughter, Seraphina, while out on Wednesday (December 14) in Brentwood, Calif.

The 39-year-old actress recently opened up about working with a therapist who “kicked a little bit of the Southern girl out of me.”

“She helped me to take charge a bit more, to not be so passive. She taught me to fight. I didn’t know how … Ben and I aren’t big fighters,” Jennifer told InStyle‘s January issue.

“But there are times you have to have a hard talk,” she added. “That’s a conversation I couldn’t have before. But now I can talk frankly in a way I couldn’t do – that’s pretty major.”

Glad to see her wearing that honking diamond ring again! I’d wear that thing everywhere if I were her. It’s gorgeous!

# 2

for the idiotic troll who complained that Jennifer was shown too much here on JJ guess what; she’s back!!. let your whining begin again.

# 3

She seems like a genuinely awesome lady someone to look up to as a mother and an actor cause she does both so great

# 4

@like it: an actress, not actor, shes not a man. And wow, really? Becuase it so f.ucking difficult to take care of your babies, when you are rich and dont need to worry about basically anything.

Wasn’t Ben so scared of her he once said that she was going to kill him if he didn’t buy something (diapers?) for the baby and he was so scared he forgot to bring money with him?

She doesn’t seem like a delicate flower who would have any problem in being assertive.
.
There’s nothing passive about her. She traded men several times, is a go-getther, got pregnant to get Ben to marry her and does all that she can to keep him.
.
Not sure why she is pretending to be “passive”.
The woman has her own production company and shoves her children as part of her brand to gain media attention. What’s passive about her?

@f: calm down dont take your bad mood out on me there are nicer ways to say exactly what you said and so what if i got actress and actor wrong and also with money or not YES IT IS HARD TO TAKE CARE OF 2 COMING ON 3 KIDS are you kidding me by the looks of it she doesn’t use nannies all that often and i have to say juggling work and kids she looks like she does a great job at parenting so go punch a boxing bag instead of using the keyboard to ***** sycho words at people.F.ucker

She seemes nice and calm but deep down is a beast, she wants to get all the media attention and pretend that she has a perfect relationship and that she is the best mom in the world. But I don’t buy it, never liked Jennifer Garner she is not a talented actress..She is a fake person who got Ben trapped by getting pregnant every year lol..poor Ben…

LOL Poor lady enjoys being delusional about reality.

LOL Poor lady enjoys being delusional about reality.

She said she’s willing to do anything for Ben. Yeah, she’s willing to look at the other direction when he fools around just for Ben to stay with her. She’s not passive. She’s dumb. That’s all.

She and her kids are lucky not to have the photographers up close in their faces.

She is HUGE.Can’t believe she has 2 more months to go. She has nannies like most celebs,nothing wrong in that…All working moms have help in some way,daycare,babysitters,etc.

like it@ How do you know she doesn’t use nannies all that often? I give her credit for not using a nanny when she out in about but the woman does have nannies at home nothing wrong with that but let’s not pretend that she does everything herself.

Paps don’t usually show celeb nannies,no money in that…I have seen Garner’s nanny in a pic a couple of times.

Agreed with some comments in here #7 #10 – JG is not dumb at all!very smart to search for $ & fame which BA has !
it is too bad that nice men like MV or SF don’t have these luxuries so she said good bye to both without sympathy.
I have nothing against her however the reality is got pregnant got married, got pregnant to keep divorce lawyers away
what strategy !
and still faking saying that she is not proactive…she is not a good actress in a big screen she is certainly a good actress in off screen.
the only thing she has been tried hard to keep is the image of being a good mother

Aw well, you’re full of crap but at least Ben married her that’s more than most HOllywood dudes do for their knocked up GFs. I would say its because he loved her. He’s no fool & would never marry if he didn’t want to (ie JLO)

When I see her, I always want to slap her and tell her to stop being such a doormat – glad to hear she’s taken steps in the right direction!

MIMI MIMI MIMI!!! why do you comment on EVERY jen garner/ben affleck poster!! Get a life! why are you so jelous!! you’ve been hating on them for years now and they continue to be together. LEAVE THEM ALONE and GET A LIFE!!

She is clever and calculating if not brazen. This is the girl that supposedly wrote to Ben about her “woe is me” marriage to Scott. This is the girl that supposedly cheated on her husband with Ben. You always reap what you sow. It will all come back to bite her in the a$$!

love love love love her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best of luck to Ben and Jen!! Look forward to seeing the new addition to their family:) Beautiful family~
