10 Memorable Moments From Jennifer Garner’s Life Before Ben Affleck
After news of Jennifer Garner’s divorce from Ben Affleck broke, she reportedly said that she couldn’t remember a time when it was just the two of them. A common feeling for couples who have children early in their relationships, but it’s an unfortunate outcome for one of Hollywood’s favourite pairs. But instead of dwelling on demise of the celebrated couple, fans can at least focus on the happier times for this leading lady. Here are 10 memorable moments from Jennifer Garner’s life before Ben Affleck.
10. Made-for-television Jennifer
Before fame, fortune, and Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner appeared in her first small screen role in the made-for-television movie Zoya, based on a Danielle Steel novel. Jennifer had a relatively minor role playing Sasha, the main character’s “aggressively neurotic daughter” who was the catalyst for “innumerable family crises.” Fans can safely assume that the crises of a young Russian countess’s daughter wouldn’t really mirror the divorce drama of a modern Hollywood star.
9. Dude, Jennifer’s Film Debut
In 2000, Jennifer Garner took her acting to the big screen when she appeared in Dude, Where’s My Car. In her feature film debut, she played the role of Ashton Kutcher’s girlfriend. While it wasn’t the most remarkable of roles, it helped her make her way along the path to the star she’d soon become.
