Jennifer Talked About Motherhood

Jennifer has three kids with her ex-husband Ben Affleck.

Jennifer said motherhood had brought many changes in her life and made her realize things she didn't know about herself. 

She said she was the most anxious mother in the world when she gave birth to her firstborn. 

She said she didn’t have anyone from her family and friends who became mothers her age, so she felt very isolated about her motherhood journey because she didn’t have anyone to guide her. 

She was intimidated by the attention of the paparazzi. She said she looked up to other mothers to learn from them. 

She said that she got to see every color of her child. She got a chance to witness the slightest moment of her kids and their struggle. 

She added she loves to watch them evolve. She shared that her relationship with her kids will change as they age. 

Jennifer Was Always Crazy About Acting

Jennifer shared that when she was growing up, she performed shows for people with her best friend. 

She loved to produce shows. She said she used to sell tickets door to door for 25 cents.

In college, she only wanted to do Shakespeare and modern drama. 

She said that she was influenced by the students who were senior to her and were very professional and great at doing theatre. 

So, she also started working in theatre during the summer. She gave many auditions and got three jobs in one day to sustain herself. 

She said that she was broke then. Through her agent, she got a role in a miniseries, and they flew her to Los Angeles and paid her 150 dollars a day. 

Her most significant breakthrough in her acting career was for the show Alias. The show changed her life completely, and there had been no looking back for her.
