Jennifer Garner looked magnificent in 2006 at the 10th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. In reference to this evening, she recently told InStyle that “”This makeup is so beautiful and sexy. A lighter lip, a little bronzer—I like this.”
Save the Children and Toys R Us are teaming up to deliver thousands of blankets to babies. A number of mothers, including Jennifer Garner, have designed baby blankets for Bundled in Hope. The blankets will be auctioned on eBay, and 100% of the proceeds will be used to purchase blankets for babies in need. As you know, Jennifer Garner is a huge supporter of Save the Children, and this blanket is a treat for any fan. Jennifer Garner’s design features overlapping pink circles in various sizes, accentuated by a pink satin border. Bidding on the baby blanket designed by Jennifer Garner begins on May 25th.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past got off to a shaky start for its ratings but seems to be doing well in the box office. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is currently sitting at the 2nd spot in the box office for the weekend, according to Fandango. These are simply premilinary numbers, as the real numbers will be released tomorrow morning. It’s not surprise that it isn’t number one, since it was released at the same time as the newest X-Men installment, Wolverine. X-Men Origins is expected to bring in over $100M this weekend alone. When final numbers come out for the weekend, it’s likely that Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner will have raked in $20M for the weekend, beating the number 3 movie, Obsessed. Though Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is doing well in the box office, its ratings of “so-so” on Fandango and a 5.3 on IMDB won’t help it to sustain this level of success. IMDB ratings are typically high for new movies as people that have been anticipating the film for months inflate the rating. Over time, IMDB ratings tend to drop. On Rotten Tamoes, it is currently rated 31%, which is poor. X-Men Origins however, is only rate 37%, so Ghosts of Girlfriends Past isn’t too far behind.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past featured Christa B. Allen as a young Jennifer Garner. She is the same actor used to portray young Jenna in 13 Going on 30. Christa looked remarkably like a young Jennifer Garner in 13 Going On 30 and it appears she does so again in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Above you can see a picture of Christa B Allen now, and a picture of Jennifer Garner taken approximately 5 years ago. I wonder if in a few years Violet Affleck will be playing a young Jennifer Garner in a movie? Who knows, we’ll just have to wait and find out.
