Jennifer Garner chatted with David Letterman on the Late Show last night while promoting The Odd Life of Timothy Green. She talked about the magical movie and also touched on her family life now that she has three kids at home. Jennifer joked that she feels like she really has "75 children" and added that she just can't get enough of her new son, Samuel. Hear Jennifer talk about that and how Violet and Seraphina are adapting to having a boy at home now!
Jennifer Garner donned a red dress for last night's premiere of The Odd Life of Timothy Green at LA's El Capitan Theatre. She posed on the Astroturf carpet with her big-screen husband, Australian actor Joel Edgerton, as well as their movie son, CJ Adams. Jennifer's leading lady Rosemarie DeWitt also smiled for the cameras alongside her spouse, Ron Livingston. The Disney film centers around the story of a couple, played by Jennifer and Joel, who welcome a child unconventionally after struggling to conceive. Because of the family themes in the picture, we asked Jennifer if she planned on watching it with her loved ones. She replied that she'd actually brought along two relatives, her parents, Pat and Bill, for their first-ever premiere. For even more from our chat with Jennifer, stay tuned for this afternoon's PopSugar Rush.
Jennifer Garner charmed the audience Saturday at the D23 Expo in Anaheim as she presented an early look at The Odd Life of Timothy Green. The movie, due in theaters in 2012, stars Jennifer and Joel Edgerton as a couple who learn they can't have children of their own. One night after getting the sad news, the pair crack open some red wine and start listing the qualities they'd hope for in a child, and their dream of being parents finds a strange way of coming true. Jennifer said: "I just fell for the story. I loved the magical element to it." She also told the crowd that, as a mom, she liked the message of valuing what's different about every kid. The Odd Life of Timothy Green was one of several films previewed at the Disney Expo this weekend. The studio also shared early footage from The Avengers and John Carter, which stars Friday Night Lights alum Taylor Kitsch. Pixar presented its 2012-2014 slate, Jason Segel stopped by to talk about The Muppets, and fans got a peek behind the scenes of Oz: the Great and Powerful. Oz is currently filming in Detroit, so James Franco and his costars couldn't make it to California for this weekend's festivities. Despite it, director Sam Raimi sent a video message and shared a look at James in costume filming a scene opposite Michelle Williams, who — along with Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis — plays one of the witches of Oz.
The trailer for The Odd Life of Timothy Green takes a sad subject — a couple's infertility — and uses it as the basis for a magical, and possibly uplifting, film. Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton play Cindy and Jim, a married couple who are happy together, but have just given up on their dream of conceiving a child. Downtrodden, they make a wish list for the qualities they would want their kid to have, and then bury the list in the backyard. Imagine their surprise when a young boy shows up in their own backyard boasting a checklist of personality traits eerily similar to those on the list they had made.
The preview is a little contrived, but it has an element of bittersweetness to it that disarmed me. See if you can take watching Cindy and Jim craft their list and do things like faux-cheer for the kid they think they'll never have, and then watch as Timothy come into their lives. Is he really theirs? We won't know until the film comes out, but darned if the trailer doesn't make you want to believe it. Watch it when you read more
