Admitting it's an emotional struggle.
"I adore going to movie sets and being part of a team trying to create something. And yet, I hate to miss even one bedtime with my girls."
Understanding that the push-pull she faces is hardly unique.
"My sisters both are working mothers. I understand that my being an actress as well as being at home isn't some heroic thing. That doesn't mean it isn't confusing or difficult--especially that question of how you find a balance."
She knows how lucky she is.
"I'm privileged, because I have a lot of freedom. I want to use it to make as warm and normal a life as I can for our daughters."
On co-starring opposite Patrick Dempsey and Ashton Kutcher in the romantic comedy "Valentine's Day."
"I go home and say to Ben, 'Do you know what I've been doing at work all day?'"
Her own romance with Ben Affleck.
"Ben is sexy and kind, but he's also a riot. We can be very goofy together."
Finding the time to be romantic.
"You steal the time. You steal a date, you steal a kiss, you steal a whisper. You sit next to each other on the couch with computers on your laps. After the kids are asleep you...well, you know. Whatever it is. You slip away for a night, which we've only just now done for the first time. Of course, I call home while we're away. Ben would be surprised if I didn't."
Crediting her own parents with putting her on the path to stardom.
"I was the most independent of the three of us. My mother and father always supported my passion for acting. I think they just kind of expected me to move to New York and become an actress and have all these adventures. When I switched my major from chemistry to theater in college, my father never batted an eye. That was impressive when you think how hard they worked to save and put us all through school."
Why her divorce from actor Scott Foley in 2004 was a turning point.
"I had a lot of growing up to do. I'm still conflict-averse. I don't like to argue. But back then I couldn't have a fight. I couldn't work things out because I wasn't able to say what I needed to say. I didn't have a voice. I didn't dare to express myself. It was a huge heartbreak for me to have something fail like that. I knew that this was either an opportunity for growth or I would sink. It's easy when you're hurt and angry to just say, 'Oh, it's them.' But I had to come into my own. I thought, 'Why did this relationship not work? What part of the failure is my responsibility?' So I went to work on it. I started therapy."
Gaining a powerful self-awareness.
"It's not like I didn't realize I had any issues until I got a divorce. But I had this professional confidence that wasn't equaled by my own personal confidence in any relationship, not just with men. There was a disconnect. I realized I needed to be more like my character in 'Alias,' who was so powerful and confident and an inspiration to me. I understood very well how to be nice and how to take care of people. I didn't know how to ask for anything that I needed. It was important to balance it out."
Finding a new relationship with friend Ben Affleck.
"Well, it helped that we were both single at the time. He's a very good writer."
So did he woo her with letters?
"Don't make assumptions. I didn't say that! Okay...e-mail. He's a very persuasive writer."
Counting on friends and family for support.
"I will tell you what I can't abide--and I think the Internet has really created a space for it--women criticizing other women and mothers criticizing other mothers. It just makes me crazy, whether it's between staying at home, going to work, how long you breast-feed, if you use formula. I feel like we should just assume everyone is doing the best they can. Women should take care of each other, not tear each other down.
I would just like to see a mother who really believes that she has done it all so right, you know what I mean?"
Did Affleck have to work hard to win over Garner's mom and sisters?
"He doesn't have trouble wiggling his way in anywhere. Ben is charm personified when he wants to be. He's not easily threatened or made uncomfortable--he's very secure in that way. Maybe he just knows I'm nuts about him, and he doesn't have anything to worry about. Don't forget we were friends first for a long time."
There's nothing wrong with being "nice."
"I can't complain. This mix is perfect for me. I am the model middle child. I am patient and I like to take care of everyone. Being called nice is a compliment. It's not a boring way to describe me."
"I can live with Ben (Affleck) working crazy hours. But I can't live without girlfriends ... It's fine if he's not there; I just need someone to bitch about it to." - Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner has the honors of being W's January cover girl. The issue, which hits newsstands on Dec. 22, features a few close and personal shots of the star.
Jennifer opened up to the magazine ahead of the release ofValentine's Day, chatting about her career and life as Mrs. Affleck.
On deciding to have kids with Ben: "We were together a year, and we just started breeding. We were like, 'Letís have a baby!' And eight days laterÖ"
On her mentioning Ben in interviews and his not mentioning her: "Ben asks me, 'How come when I do an interview I manage to keep you out of it completely?' And Iím like, 'Either because you donít think about me or because boy magazines donít care about what I make you for dinner. But they should!'"
On being away from loved ones while working: "Thatís the hardest thing about being on location when itís not for your own project. When itís for you, youíre on set with everybody you know, but if not, itís lonely. I can live with Ben working crazy hours. But I canít live without girlfriends around to talk about men with! . . . Itís fine if heís not there; I just need someone to bitch about it to!"
Jennifer Garner turns to tickle torturing her daughter Violet Affleck while playing at Palisades Park on Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif.
The mother-daughter pair, who wore matching finger nail polish, were seen playing a game of tag and laughing hysterically after Jen caught Violet.
Jennifer Garner was showing off some painful-looking scrapes whilst heading out to film a spot on The David Letterman show in New York yesterday.
The Alias star - who gave birth to second daughter Seraphina back in January - revealed a scabbed up elbow and grazed knee as she posed for pictures outside the show's studio.
During her interview, the Juno actress told Letterman she took a heavy fall while running.
He then pulled out a tube of cream to rub into the injuries and jokingly told Jennifer: "Leave that on. It will come off in the shower, then put more on."
Ben Affleck's missus also did her part to look after Letterman, who was suffering from a sore throat.
She came on with a cup of tea and honey to help soothe his throat as he struggled on through the show.
