Jennifer Garner’s School Pick Up

Mom-of-three Jennifer Garner did the school run with daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, in Santa Monica, Calif. on Thursday (October 17). The following day, Jen and Sera stepped out to Starbucks for some drinks to go.

On Thursday evening, the actress attended the Beverly Hills premiere of Dallas Buyers Club at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre. Joined by costars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, Jen looked lovely in floor-length navy gown.

McConaughey lost more than 40 pounds for the role of an HIV-positive man.

“I was there to support him, and Jared came in, and we all kind of went, ‘Oh he’s doing this,” Jennifer told PEOPLE of his weight loss. “Okay. He’s not joking around.’”

Leto followed suit also losing 30 pounds for his role.

“I hated seeing Matthew so — I mean, he looked ill. He looked legitimately really, very ill,” the actress said. ”It was all I could do to not cry … because he really looked that sick,” she told Yahoo.

When it came to Leto, who plays an AIDS-afflicted transsexual named Rayon, Jen said, “It was awful to watch.” She added: “He would look totally out of it, like he could fall over, until they said action and then he would snap to and focus and be able to do anything. But he was scary.”

    I think this family shops in a thrift store. They are always dressed so raggedy.

      What’s wrong with how they are dressed? The clothes match, they are clean and and not at all worn looking. …. so what is the problem? Other than you not liking Jennifer?

        Those clothes do not match and let face it she can’t dress to save her life but then again Jen she has no style and is not a fashion person so I would expect her to dress any other way. I give her credit for having Rachel Zoe style her when she goes to events.

      They are dressed pretty much like any other children I’ve seen at that age. Appropriate for their ages and the situation. A school run is not a media runway.

      the way that all little kids treat clothing, thrift store quality is really all they need. i think it’s the parents whose kids are dressed like they’re in a neiman’s advertisement are the ridiculous ones.

      And your problem with thrift store shopping is? 75% of clothing purchased by my family is gently used and has been for years. We get complemented all the time as do the rest of my family and I encourage others all the time to shop 2nd hand. One of the main reasons I love Jennifer Garner and Angelina Jolie too is because they aren’t slaves to fashion. They aren’t trying to stay on the cover of and in the pages of fashion magazines or worried what they’ll be photo’d in and I pat them on their backs for that.

      Get thee to YouTube and watch Macklemore and get educated on what a thrift store can do for you.

    What’s up with those pants and shoes? Hideous.

    Is she pregnant again?

  • mrs. trumbell

    have they not put seraphina in preschool? didn’t they have violet in preschool until she started kindergarten? not that preschool is necessary or that it’s terribly important for me to know, i’m just curious and wondering if my impressions are accurate.

      She may just be at a school where they can drop her off without being photographed. After the paparazzi made Violet’s preschool a daily congregation of media, I thought they might look for a place that the paps couldn’t walk into.

      • mrs. trumbell

        that’s true. i suppose i could be misinterpreting the sequence of photos, it just always seems like violet gets dropped off then sera spends the rest of the day with mom or dad.
