So funny! While in self-isolation, Jennifer Garner shared the most hilarious video of herself completing three challenges to fight against the current coronavirus pandemic. “I’ve been challenged to [do] a lot of things so I’m going to try and do them all,” the actress said in a clip she posted on Instagram on Tuesday, March 24.
First, the Alias star started off by doing a couple of pushups. Then, when she completed that task, Jennifer, 47, held up a piece of paper that read, ‘#IStayHomeFor: My Parents, Victor Garber [and] doctors and nurses.” But the clip didn’t end there. After fans got a good look at her sign, Jennifer immediately started washing her hands until they were clean. Then, she took a selfie for professional dancer Tiler Peck before yelling out in excitement.
“Pushups for @glennondoyle. #ISTAYHOMEFOR … @mollybsims. Clean hands for @margaretqualley. (Hi, @oliviawilde). Women supporting women for @tilerpeck. Challenge accepted! Boom!” she captioned the post.
Seems like Jennifer has been making the best out of her time at home amid the coronavirus outbreak. The only thing that seems to be bothering her is how her parents, William and Patricia Garner, are handling the pandemic.
“The hard things are teens, early 20s people and my parents. My parents are the hard ones,” she joked to Jimmy Fallon during the home edition of his show on Thursday, March 19. “I’m like, ‘Dad, mom, the world is shut down to keep you safe.’ And they’re like, ‘We think we’re going to go to Sam’s Warehouse.’ Stay home, you have to stay home!”
Parents can be hard to deal with sometimes, but at least Jen’s kids — Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 8 — whom she shares with ex-husband Ben Affleck, have been behaving well.
“I think I have the perfect age kids for this,” Jennifer laughed. “Because they’re big enough to understand and to have the conversations. ‘Like, we’re built for challenge, we can do this, we’re a tough team. Let’s learn about a vacuum cleaner.’ But they’re not so big that they’re just like, ‘Well, I don’t care. I’m going to go.’”
Unfortunately, Jennifer and her family will have to stay in quarantine for a few more weeks until coronavirus blows over. But they can always spend their time attempting a few more challenges!
