Jennifer Garner Covers ‘Elle’; Talks Marriage & Work Ethic

Jennifer Garner Covers 'Elle'; Talks Marriage & Work Ethic

Jennifer Garner is shown on the cover of the November issue of “Elle” magazine for their Women In Hollywood edition. Inside, she talks about her strong marriage to Ben Affleck, their children and her work ethic.

“My ambition shifted when I had kids in a way that I didn’t anticipate,” the Men, Women & Children star, 42, explained in the cover story. “I became more ambitious for my life as a whole, and for that kind of health and happiness of the overall family unit. And that very much includes my husband and very much includes me.”

“My husband is always the one saying to me, ‘You have to work, you have to work. This is part of who you are. We’ll figure it out,’” she said of the Oscar winner. “That’s powerful, when your partner has that serious mantra.”

With regard to Ben’s nude scene in “Gone Girl”, she added, “What I have to say is, ‘You’re welcome.’ I just try to consider myself a charitable person and I wanted to give back.”

Too funny!

Lizzy Caplan Covers ‘Elle Canada’; Talks Marriage, Kids & Her Career

Lizzy Caplan Covers 'Elle Canada'; Talks Marriage, Kids & Her Career

“Masters Of Sex” actress Lizzy Caplan is featured on the cover of the latest edition of “Elle Canada” and inside she talks about marriage, children and not sacrificing her career to be a mother.

Firstly, she opened up about the stigma surrounding the stay-at-home dad. She said, “It’s a really conscious choice to be, say, the woman who goes out and works while the husband stays at home. It’s 2014, and if your husband makes less money than you, people ask you if that’s ‘weird’ for you. It’s pretty mind-blowing.”

On the topic of her love life, she said it can be “sh***y dating actors.” She said that she sees billboards of herself laying in bed all over Los Angeles. She said, “I had this moment of ‘Wow, it must really suck for exes to see that.’ But what can you do? Don’t date an actress if you don’t want to see her in bed on a billboard.”

When speaking of marriage and kids, she said, “I don’t want it to be an assumption that I will be the one to stay home and raise the kids. Now, I could have kids and want to do that, I have no idea—but from where I sit now, that does not sound all that appealing to me. I really want kids, and I want to be fully involved in their lives, but I don’t want to sacrifice my own goals to be a mother. I actually romanticize the idea of a stay-at-home dad. Partly because I think that’s a very sexy thing, but also because if there are two working actors and both of them get a job and they have a baby, the woman is going to stay with the baby. I see it all the time. It just seems very unfair.”

Rihanna: Lipstick Draws Attention Away From Flaws

Rihanna: Lipstick Draws Attention Away From Flaws

Rihanna is seen here sporting longer hair and even shorter shorts in New York City a couple of days ago. She always looks put together — even when she’s showing off a bit of skin, right?

If anyone knows a thing or two about looking their best, it’s RiRi. Her style says cute and comfortable to me. The Barbadian singer opened up to “Elle” magazine about a few things…here’s an excerpt:

Her pick for “world’s sexiest woman”: “Penelope Cruz is the sh-t. If I could wake up and look like her tomorrow, that would be great. Mia Wallace [Uma Thurman’s Pulp Fiction character] is gangsta. She’s epic. I’m going to do that bob again. Those bangs.”

Words to live by: “‘Avoid obviousness.’ That is a quote by Leonardo DiCaprio. That’s what makes you create something, that’s the excitement, that’s the thrill.”

Her favorite beauty product: “Lipstick. It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they’re wearing a full face of makeup. And guys are stupid–they won’t notice when you’re not.”

It’s funny that she would want to wake up and be Penelope Cruz if she could. It just goes to show you that celebrities have their own insecurities and that no matter who you are, you always have things about yourself that you might want to change. Who would you want to be if you could?

On not being able to please all the people, all the time:
“Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo—not that I ever would—that’s exactly what people would be desecrating me for. They’d be like, ‘now you’re going to give it up, now you’re a sellout.’ like, okay. What do you want? What would you like?”

On when she realized how big Twilight would be:
“The day the movie came out there was a picture of me—in the New York Post, I think. I was sitting on my front porch, smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and dog. And I was like, Oh shit, well, I have to be aware of that.”

Stewart on letting her career evolve naturally:
“Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory—like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum—then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway. Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.”
