SOCIAL GOOD: An Interview With Save The Children Ambassador Jennifer Garner

“OPTIMISM”, Jennifer Garner chose the word optimism when we interviewed her about her work with Save The Children and the #FindTheWords campaign. My word had been “LEAD”, Jen Burden’s was “CREATE”, and Stacey Hoffer Weckstein of Evolving Stacey, who did the interview with me, had “COURAGE”. These were our words in the 30 words, 30 days blogger challenge for #FindTheWords to represent the 30,000 fewer words kids would learn in homes without early education. In turn, when we had the exciting opportunity to interview her, we asked Jennifer Garner what her word would be.

”If you are working with a baby, with a mom, with a toddler, there is just so much optimism, she explained. I just feel like it’s just the most optimistic thing in the world to work on early childhood stuff”.

The investment in early education is optimism at it’s best. Studies have shown that the impact of early education can have long reaching effects as a child grows up. Kids are better academically prepared, socially adjusted, and tend to stay in school longer when they receive early education. In our conversation Jennifer Garner pointed out that some states have figured out that the money they spend from birth to five years old goes so much further than the recidivism that they would otherwise spend when a child is older and having trouble.

The hard facts cited by Save The Children are that in the United States 1 in 4 children lives in poverty and many do not have a single book in their home. These kids are not read to, and will not have access to a pre-school education. By age three they will have hear an average of 30,000 less words than their peers which puts them at a great disadvantage before they even reach school. Ultimately these kids are 70% more likely to be arrested for violent crimes, 40% more likely to become a teen parent and 25% more likely to drop out of school. Read More »

Interview: Jason Reitman & Jennifer Garner

Jason Reitman isn’t nervous about talking about his latest big screen drama, but Jennifer Garner seems a bit daunted being the only actor on hand to talk about the ensemble drama Men, Women, & Children (opening in Toronto this Friday, and expanding across Canada over the next several weeks) on behalf of her incredibly stacked cast.

“When I was told that I was going to be the only actor here with Jason, I’ll admit that I freaked out a little bit in my head,” Garner joked before getting down to business during a sit down with press for the film’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. “There was a part of me that was thinking, ‘Man, I really need Adam Sandler for this.’”

Garner, who plays an overprotective mother trying to shield her daughter from the dangers of the internet in Reitman’s film, has little to worry about. She has a natural rapport with Reitman even when they don’t necessarily agree on the questions they’re answering. Plus, they have a history that works in their favour. Having worked previously on the Oscar nominated Juno, Reitman passed along his adaptation of Chad Kultgen’s novel (co-written with Chloe and Secretary writer Erin Cressida Wilson) on a plane ride while both were on the way to the set of father Ivan Reitman’s previous film, Draft Day, which also co-starred Garner.

The film places the focus on how the connected world of the internet serves to make personal connections in the real world even harder. Garner’s on screen daughter, played by Kaitlyn Dever, has been hiding a crush on a boy she really likes (played by skyrocketing young star Ansel Elgort). The boy she like has quit his star spot on the football team while dealing with his mother’s sudden departure to be with another man. Meanwhile in the same small Texas town, a couple (Adam Sandler and Rosemarie DeWitt), a struggling single mother (Judy Greer) unwittingly exploits her daughter’s attractiveness under the guise that it will help the young woman’s modelling career, and a cheerleader with anorexia (Elena Kampouris) fights to get noticed by her peers.

Jennifer Garner Sells Parenthood Comedy to Fox

Fox is looking to executive producer Jennifer Garner for its next family comedy.

The network has handed out a script commitment to the actress-producer for a half-hour comedy called Half Full, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The single-camera comedy centers on a newlywed couple forced to put on hold their dream of moving to New York City because of impending (unexpected) parenthood. Instead, they have no choice but to stay at home in “beautiful” Agawam, Mass., keeping themselves within a 5-mile radius of the husband’s five bitter older siblings.

Matthew Nicklaw will pen the script and co-executive produce the comedy, which hails from Warner Bros. Television and Garner’s studio-based Vandalia Films banner. Garner will executive produce, with Vandalia’s Juliana Janes on board to produce.

Last season, Garner teamed with Butter screenwriter Jason Micallef for a strip club drama set up at Fox, and now she is prepping mystery dramedy All the Pretty Faces at Bravo.

Pitfalls of technology became clear to female stars of ‘Men, Women & Children’

Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt and Judy Greer say Jason Reitman film made them consider what they were modeling for their kids.

Jennifer Garner’s latest film isn’t a horror, but it scared the heck out of her.

“Men, Women & Children,” a dramedy opening Wednesday, is a cautionary tale about kids and the pitfalls of technology.

The movie “made us take a good, hard look at what we’re modeling for our kids, and remind them that a person in front of you is more important than the person [they connect to virtually],” says the 42-year-old actress and mother of three with husband Ben Affleck.

In the film, directed by Jason Reitman (“Juno,” “Up in the Air”), L.A. teens Chris (Travis Tope) and Hannah (Olivia Crocicchia) carry on a sexting relationship that’s echoed by the tech-obsessed adults in their lives. Chris’s dad Don (Adam Sandler) is more into online porn than he is his wife (Rosemarie DeWitt), leading to her exploring online partners herself. And Hannah’s mom (Judy Greer) posts provocative pics of her wannabe-model daughter on a website. Then there’s Patricia (Garner), who delves too deep into her daughter Brandy’s (Kaitlyn Dever) social network.

DeWitt and Greer agree with Garner that the Internet adds another level to monitoring and protecting children. Read More »
