Here is what happened:

Jennifer Garner recently shared that her and Ben Affleck’s oldest daughter Violet, 17, is preparing for college. She stated, “The excitement and stress go hand-in-hand. She’s handling it like a champ and she’s totally in charge. She’s a self starter. … She’s in the middle of all of that.” Violet turns 18 on December 1, and Jennifer expressed that she is proud of her no matter what. Jennifer is also proud of herself and the roles she has taken on recently, such as in the film The Family Switch.

In addition, Jennifer revealed that she selects her current roles based on more than just the “cool points” she earns from her children. She enjoys being a part of films that families experience together. She shared, “The thing that made me the most excited—I mean, I love hearing the kids laugh—but there were a couple of my friends who were moms who were chaperoning this outing, and they told me after that they cried. And I was like, ‘Yes!'” The Family Switch is available to stream on Netflix starting November 30.

Aside from Violet, Jennifer is also a mom to Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11. The actress, who finalized her divorce from Ben in 2018, revealed that Violet is taking control of her college search and doesn’t need much help from her mom. The article also includes video content and a social share section, as well as a call to action for viewers to explore a photo gallery of Jennifer Garner’s best-dressed mom moments.
