Jennifer Garner Gets InStyle

Jennifer Garner is the latest hot mom to grace the cover of InStyle magazine. Wearing a Calvin Klein dress and a Cartier bracelet and ring, the actress pokes fun at her husband Ben Affleck, talks about her what she learned from her mother, and keeping it real. Here are some highlights from the interview via Just Jared:

On keeping it real: “I never go nuts with my look. It’s easy to feel like you’ve gone into caricature territory when you do. I’ve found that if you feel like a good, you’re going to look like one.”

On what she’s learned from her mom: “She taught me to proof my yeast with a little bit of sugar–which she learned from her mom, Violet (the name of Jen’s oldest daughter). And she also taught me how to stretch a roasted chicken to make three meals. Though Ben could eat an entire chicken in one sitting.”

On practice making perfect: “These days I wear less makeup than earlier in my career, but I know a lot more about it now.”

On why Violet’s hair looks a little messy sometimes: “Ben will do the school run. He dresses her and does her hair. It’s pretty funny. (makes playful glance) You can always tell when he has been at it, just two random barrettes hanging in there. It’s so sweet.”
