12 Things You Didn’t Know About Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner may be in the news these days more for her divorce from Ben Affleck than any other reason, but there’s more to the actress and mother than a rocky marriage and inevitable impending life changes. From her mighty personal wealth to a scary stalking incident, Jennifer’s life is more than just a famous career and famous soon-to-be ex-hubby. Here are 12 things you didn’t know about Jennifer Garner.
12. Jennifer Garner is (Seriously) Rolling In The Dough
Starring as a super spy in the hit series Alias as well as landing the leading roles in a string of popular movies like 13 Going on 30 have helped to make Jennifer Garner a very wealthy woman. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she is currently banking somewhere in the area of a cool $40 million (US). Not bad, gal, not bad at all.
11. She Didn’t See Acting as a Possibility
It’s easy to assume that in the super-competitive Hollywood industry that everyone who makes it to the top had every intention of making their way there and would do whatever was necessary to reach their lofty goal. That wasn’t the case with Jennifer Garner. “I wanted to be a doctor, a librarian. … (Acting) wasn’t possible to me.” But that didn’t stop the determined Garner and once the acting bug bit she was ready and willing to learn anything and everything she could about her future profession. “The more I learned what there was to learn about this field, the more hungry I became for it. It comes out of wanting to learn more, as opposed to ‘I want to be a star.’ I never felt that way.” Good thing for fans she’s a star whether she intended to be or not.
