Jennifer Garner Reveals How Paparazzi Really Impacted Her & Her Children

Jennifer Garner is speaking out on how the paparazzi have impacted her life and the lives of her three children: Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 8.

“For 10 years, there were at the very least six cars and often 20 outside of our house, and outside of school, and at the pediatrician’s,” she said on PBS’ Tell Me More With Kelly Corrigan. “And you’re begging them, ‘Please step aside from the pediatrician’s door. I have a sick kid. Please.’”

“It’s a cost of doing business but it just got to be ridiculous,” Jennifer added, saying they were “causing car accidents all the time.”

“I’d go through a yellow light and there would be 15 cars that would go through the red light without compunction,” Jennifer said. “Anywhere that we went it was a total circus. My one daughter tried to play soccer and it was such a zoo for the families that they just said, ‘Can you please not.’”

“I just loathe them so much and what they do, but there are a couple of them that have been with me for so long,” Jennifer said. “They’ve been assigned to me for 15 years. One of them said to me one day, ‘You don’t know how much we love watching you with your children. You don’t know how much we respect you.’”

“They do know me better than anyone knows me,” Jennifer concluded. “They go everywhere where I go. They’ve seen me strap kids into cars, they’ve seen me pregnant, they’ve seen me at the store.”

If you missed it, Jennifer recently explained why she keeps her kids, who she shares with Ben Affleck, out of the public eye.

Ben Affleck Says His Daughter Violet Can Speak Better Spanish Than He Can!

Ben Affleck has been speaking Spanish for a long time and his 14-year-old daughter Violet is currently taking Spanish classes in school… and he says she’s at the point where she speaks the language better than him!

The 47-year-old actor opened up during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show this week.

“She’s always been a very good student, and she’s been interested in Spanish, and so I would often help her,” Ben said. “Now, all of a sudden, she’s gotten into the grade where she’s, like, in the harder Spanish classes and she’s getting better.”

“She’s right at the point where I think she might be passing me,” he added.

Ben says that Violet is now correcting him when he speaks the language!

“I was like, ‘Nope. This is not happening,’” he said. “I don’t mind that I can’t do your math homework when you’re 14 years old, but you are not going to be better at Spanish than me. So I’ve decided now I gotta take classes; I gotta do something to keep up.”

Ben was on the talk show alongside his co-stars from the movie The Way Back, which is now in theaters.

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.

“She’s really smart about, ‘OK, now I’m leaving the house. Now I need to check with my mom because chances are she’s gonna make me take this lip off,’ ” Jen shared. “So that’s kind of where we are with it. It’s a process. Growing up is a process.”

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.”
