Jennifer Garner keeps it real on Instagram. The 49-year-old actress and mother of three skips the staged selfies and instead posts down-to-earth videos baking with her mom and learning to crochet. Her fans love these glimpses into the Yes Day star's life.
The beloved superstar is a co-founder of Once Upon a Farm, a company that offers organic snacks for kids and gives back by providing meals for children in rural communities through Save the Children. Her family's century-old Oklahoma farm is one of the company's suppliers, and Farmer Jen happily pitches in and gets her hands dirty!
In a recent Instagram video, Jen, dressed in overalls, gloves, and boots, picks pumpkins on the farm. (Some eagle-eyed commenters say they're Sunshine kabocha squash.) As she's harvesting the crop, a voice off-screen says, "Watch out for those snakes." Jen asks, "What kind of snakes?," and the helpful person responds, "Copperheads." Jen seems to remain calm while processing the news that venomous snakes could be nearby.
The video, captioned, "🚫🐍 #SoYouThinkYouCanFarm #NationalFarmersDay," got 2.5 million views and thousands of comments from fans who were both impressed by Jen's calm demeanor and freaked out by the mention of snakes, even though Copperheads don't have potent venom.
One wrote, "Uh yeah…. Hard NO from me!!! I’m outta here. 🚫⛔️❌🐍" and another said, "Oh hell no! Ruuuuuuunnnnnnnn!!!!" Another commenter wrote, "SNAKES????? Oh Guuuurrrl....." One noted, "😮 Oh my God, It's funny you say 'what kind of snakes?' I wouldn't care if it was a Purple snake, with glitter, serving me a shot of Tequila."
In another video, Jen is seen sitting among the pumpkins as she explains her company's pledge to Save the Children. She has a lap full of pumpkins and even kisses them and says, "I love you" to the tiny squash. Clearly, it will take more than snakes to scare off Farmer Jen!
