The Many Reasons to Love Jennifer Garner

Anyone remotely familiar with pop culture knows of Jennifer Garner. Maybe you’re a fan of rom coms and caught her starring role in 13 Going on 30, or you’re a fan of strong women, loving the elevation Sydney Bristow brought to the small screen during the early noughties. You may have fallen for her girl-next-door charm in all those TV commercials, or came to love her as a mom in movies like Juno, Love, Simon, and the new Netflix movie Yes Day. Whatever the case may be, there are many reasons why one can see the shine behind Jennifer’s smile, so we’ve decided to shine a spotlight on all the Jennifer Garner movies, TV shows, and appearances where the actress and mom made us fall in love with her.

She takes on-set injuries set like a champ. After getting her knuckles sliced by Will Yun Lee on the set of Elektra, she got patched up, resumed the scene, and got sliced a second time in the same spot.
