On Instagram, the mom of three shared a hilarious video of herself to promote the “Nutcracker” in Southern California. In the clip, Garner is dressed as a nutcracker, and she is teaching a professional ballerina how to dance ballet. She also helps the ballerina prepare for her role on stage, and she also serves as a director for the show. The majority of the comments that Garner received were positive, but one negative remark caught everyone’s attention. “What do you call a movie star who makes no movies?” the Instagram user wrote. Immediately after, Garner replied, “A mom!” Fans of Garner also came to her defense after a troll seemingly tried to burst her holiday spirit.
“Of all the stars/celebrities to hate on, a troll chose you. I only know you from movies and commercials but I could tell you’re a good person,” Instagram user @iamhimtoo said. “Jen, you are awesome in whatever role you take on! The mom role will always be your number one choice,” Instagram user @debbietaylorbutler said. Meanwhile, Garner also made headlines this week after she was photographed hanging out with two of her three children with Ben Affleck. The “Peppermint” star bonded with her lookalike Seraphina and only son, Samuel. The trio headed to the nail salon for a quick pampering session. And when they stepped out, Seraphina’s nails were nicely done.
Despite her busy schedule, Garner has been spending a lot of time with her children. They were together on Thanksgiving, and they also celebrated Violet’s 14th birthday a few days after. On Christmas Day, Garner is expected to bond with her kids and family. Her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, is also expected to celebrate the occasion with them.
