Mom-of-three Jennifer Garner did the school run with daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, in Santa Monica, Calif. on Thursday (October 17). The following day, Jen and Sera stepped out to Starbucks for some drinks to go.
On Thursday evening, the actress attended the Beverly Hills premiere of Dallas Buyers Club at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre. Joined by costars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, Jen looked lovely in floor-length navy gown.
McConaughey lost more than 40 pounds for the role of an HIV-positive man.
“I was there to support him, and Jared came in, and we all kind of went, ‘Oh he’s doing this,” Jennifer told PEOPLE of his weight loss. “Okay. He’s not joking around.’”
Leto followed suit also losing 30 pounds for his role.
“I hated seeing Matthew so — I mean, he looked ill. He looked legitimately really, very ill,” the actress said. ”It was all I could do to not cry … because he really looked that sick,” she told Yahoo.
When it came to Leto, who plays an AIDS-afflicted transsexual named Rayon, Jen said, “It was awful to watch.” She added: “He would look totally out of it, like he could fall over, until they said action and then he would snap to and focus and be able to do anything. But he was scary.”View Slideshow »»
