Jennifer Garner continues her bid for Mom Of The Year 2018. The actress shared indisputable evidence on social media, showcasing her commitment to the cause.
Girl Scout Cookie Commitment
In one of those celebs-are-just-like-regular-people moments, Garner revealed she was out on the streets helping her daughter sell Girl Scout Cookies. The two set up a stand outside a local grocery store, with a super-cute handwritten sign in tow, and proceeded to flog their sugary wares just like everybody else.
The photo also, intentionally or otherwise, features a customer leaving the store who's pointing in shock at Garner. Either the 13 Going On 30 actress was about to nab a big sale or be featured in a pretty cool selfie.
Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints. #tistheseason #comeandgetem #whodoesntloveagirlscoutA post shared by Jennifer Garner (@jennifer.garner) on Feb 11, 2018 at 1:02pm PST
Garner also utilized her Instagram Story to spread the good word about Girl Scout Cookies, beyond the reach of just her locale. She even offered to send out boxes to followers if they DMed Garner their address and order amount.
"[I was] so distressed to find out that some people do not have access to Girl Scouts or Girl Scout Cookies. While my Girl Scout and Brownie have to sell their own cookies, I did buy a limited number of boxes from them to share with you guys," she explained.
The notoriously private Garner only joined Instagram last year. She recently shared a hysterical video of her sobbing about Hamilton after a dental surgery, as well as a throwback photo that had fans all aflutter.
Precious Family Moments
The actress has begun to give followers small glimpses into her picture-perfect family life. Garner loves baking with her kids and eating the results, so the Girl Scout Cookies partnership is no doubt hugely beneficial to both parties.
Garner appears to be pretty hardcore when it comes to the business side of things. In a 2016 appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael, she discussed her cutthroat approach.
"I'm the one telling the girls, you know, 'Try to talk about the gluten free because they're a dollar more.' Let's have an upsell!" she enthused.
As for whether anybody really cares that she's THE Jennifer Garner, the actress was characteristically self-effacing.
"Nobody cares, I'm just there with the troop," she said.
The Alias actress is mother to Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 5, all of whom she had with ex-husband Ben Affleck. Their conscious uncoupling was a major heartbreak for fans the world over who had held the duo up as the epitome of Hollywood happiness. The two continue to co-parent and speak highly of each other in the press.
Garner's next big role is opposite Josh Duhamel in Love, Simon, a gay coming-of-age story with Jurassic World's Nick Robinson in the leading role. Garner plays his mother, with Duhamel as his father. The flick drops March 16 and is already being heralded for its status as a mainstream, studio movie about an LGBTQ character — sadly, the first of its kind.
