A stunning Jennifer Garner was back on the red carpet at last night’s LA premiere of The Invention of Lying.
The film’s producer Lynda Obst had plenty of praise for Jennifer – not just as an actress, but as a mom, too.
“Most of the time that I did spend with her when it was off-set, Violet was cooking with her, or reading Jane Austen, or doing one of these remarkable things that Violet tends to do,” she tells People. “She encourages her kids to be independent. At the same time, kind of not television watchers. Readers. Thinkers. She is kind of old-fashioned. She is a very classic mom.”
Lynda adds that the two continue to share kid tips, saying, “We talk about really fun things to do with our kids. I will talk about the marching band I just formed with my granddaughter. She will talk about interesting play things she is doing. We swap tips. We talk about theory of parenting. We talk about free play and not interfering with the kids when they’re being creative. She is a remarkable mother.”
However, Jennifer, who also has 9-month-old daughter Seraphina with her husband Ben Affleck, downplayed her parenting skills, insisting she’s just trying to juggle kids and career as best she can.
“Every day, you feel like you are off-balance one way or another,” the movie star mom says. “You just take it one day at a time. Oh gosh, let me know when you figure that out. I don’t think anyone has it.”
