Jennifer Garner Explains Why She Keeps Her Children Out of the Public Eye

Jennifer Garner is opening up about her family and why she keeps her children out of the public eye.

The 47-year-old actress, who worked with Halle Berry years ago to make the world safer for the children of celebrities, chatted with InStyle for the mag’s 25th anniversary issue.

“It’s so gnarly to be a kid now. I guard my kids’ privacy as much as I possibly can, and I’ve never posted pictures of them on Instagram. I used to refuse to say their names during interviews — but everyone knows their names!” Jen said in the interview. “I would just say ‘my eldest,’ which I still do out of habit a lot. I’m sure there are times my kids would really love to see themselves reflected on my social media in a fun way and to have the attention they would get from that. But I’ve fought too hard against it. It would feel hypocritical.”

“There’s no implied judgment of people who do put their kids up there; I just don’t think most kids have been hounded in the way that mine were when they were little. We were completely hounded 24/7 for 10 solid years, and it changes you. You no longer take things like being able to go to your mailbox for granted. I even stopped going to the farmers market because I was being photographed there constantly,” she added. “I realized, ‘I’m ruining the farmers market for everyone; this is selfish.’ [laughs]”

Jen and ex-husband Ben Affleck are the parents of three kids – Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7. These photos were taken during one of the kids’ only public appearances, which was at Jennifer‘s Hollywood Walk of Fame star unveiling ceremony last year.

Here's How Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck Spent Easter Weekend in Hawaii with Their 3 Kids

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck reunited on Easter weekend in Hawaii with their three kids.

Ben is currently in Hawaii filming Triple Frontier, and Jennifer and the kids – Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6 – met him there.

“They made a family trip to interact with dolphins, sea lions and stingrays,” an insider told People about what they did on their vacation. “They spent several hours at the park and looked like they had the best time. The kids were all very interested in learning about the animals. They all seem like huge dolphin fans.”

Jen seemed excited about the trip. She hasn’t been to Hawaii for a while and always loved it,” the insider continued. Jennifer stayed at a resort and spent time with a gal pal in Hawaii while the kids also spent time with Ben at a home he’s staying in during filming.

“The kids love when they all spend time together,” another source said. “As long as Ben keeps working on himself, Jen is happy. She will continue to support him because it benefits the kids.”

Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck's Son Samuel, 5, Left the Sweetest Note in a Library Book

Jennifer Garner posted a photo that is definitely going to make your day.

The actress posted a note that her five-year-old son with ex Ben Affleck, Samuel, stuck inside a picture book.

“When the librarian finds a love note your son tucked into a picture book..” Jennifer captioned the photo on her Instagram account, with the hashtags #actsofkindness, #spreadlove, #belikemlkjr, and #lovenote.

The note from Samuel read, “Hello. You are loved. I believe in you.” He also drew a heart at the bottom of the note. So sweet!

One of Jennifer Garner's Kids Doesn't Believe in Santa Anymore

As Jennifer Garner was getting ready for Christmas Eve, she revealed to her fans that one of her kids no longer believes in Santa Claus.

The 45-year-old actress shared photos on her Instagram Stories of the treats that her kids left for Santa and his reindeer.

“I still have two believers,” Jennifer captioned a pic of cookies, milk, and an apple sitting on the table with a note reading, “I love you Santa.”

If we had to guess, we’d say 12-year-old Violet is the non-believer and eight-year-old Seraphina and five-year-old Samuel are the believers!
