How does Jennifer Garner do it? She radiates beauty whether she's walking the red carpet or sharing how to make apple muffins, and she never misses an opportunity to make us laugh or pay it forward. The star's recent emotional Instagram post on International Women's Day, which put the spotlight on the talented young women who have been her co-stars through the years, was no exception.
"I’m feeling extra sentimental about my tribe of movie girls lately—and extra proud of the women they are growing up to be," Garner wrote in the caption. "How lucky am I to work with such talented, compassionate, brilliant young people—they make me a better actor and mother. #InternationalWomensDay—it’s all you, ladies. Go get it!"
The post shared 10 sweet moments of Garner and her co-stars from circa 2011 to present day, including a pint-size Yara Shahidi long before she was Grown-ish, Jenna Ortega and Emma Myers of Wednesday, and a young Kaitlyn Dever, who replied, "I love you ❤️. What a light you are in this world☀️."
Racking up thousands of likes, the viral post resonated with Garner's followers and comments poured in. "Jennifer Garner is an American treasure - full stop," said one. "There are a bunch of gems in here, Jennifer! ♥️♥️♥️" noted another.
Here are a few more of our favorite fan reactions from the post:
"Jennifer for President"
"We need more Jennifer Garners in our life!!!! Always empowering others. You’re a real role model ❤️"
"Just when I thought I could not admire your authenticity more, I see this. Beautiful tribute ❤️"
"I’m a fan. Your goodness radiates. 💙"
Below is the full list of young stars Garner highlighted in her post and the projects they worked on together. With the exception of the 2011 flick Butter starring Shahidi, all feature the actors in mother-daughter relationships, which makes sense: Garner "is the type of person born to be a mother," observed one of her onscreen daughters, Kerris Dorsey, in 2014.
