Jennifer Garner looks girl next door gorgeous on the May 2009 cover of InStyle.
The 36-year-old actress gives a candid interview to the mag and pokes fun at husband Ben Affleck quite a bit. Check out all the funny things she had to say:
On keeping it real: â€œI never go nuts with my look. Itâ€™s easy to feel like youâ€™ve gone into caricature territory when you do. Iâ€™ve found that if you feel like a good, youâ€™re going to look like one.â€
On what sheâ€™s learned from her mom: â€œShe taught me to proof my yeast with a little bit of sugarâ€“which she learned from her mom, Violet (the name of Jenâ€™s oldest daughter). And she also taught me how to stretch a roasted chicken to make three meals. Though Ben could eat an entire chicken in one sitting.â€
On practice making perfect: â€œThese days I wear less makeup than earlier in my career, but I know a lot more about it now.â€
On why Violetâ€™s hair looks a little messy sometimes: â€œBen will do the school run. He dresses her and does her hair. Itâ€™s pretty funny. (makes playful glance) You can always tell when he has been at it, just two random barrettes hanging in there. Itâ€™s so sweet.â€
