After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.

Garner appears on the cover of March 2015 issue of Southern Living. She talks about her humble upbringing and how she is raising her children.

It’s really important for my kids to see that everyone doesn’t have the lives they see in Los Angeles. That doesn’t reflect the rest of the world. I want them to grow up with the Southern values I had to look at people when they say hello and to stop and smell the roses. If I could do half as good a job as my mom did, I’d be pretty happy.

jennifer gGarner is featured on Elle‘s November cover as one of the magazine’s Women in Hollywood honorees. Garner discusses motherhood and marriage.

My ambition shifted when I had kids in a way that I didn’t anticipate. 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.’ That’s powerful, when your partner has that serious mantra.

For a long time, I had it backwards. I did a bunch of interviews with it backwards. I was sitting next to Steve Carell, and he finally looked at me and said, ‘Are you doing that one purpose?’ He was so nice, he wouldn’t rat be out on the air. And I said, ‘No, I’m not, thank you.

You can’t expect to be courted all the time, and I don’t want to court him right now-I don’t have the energy! But we’re definitely in a very mindful place where we’re making an effort to be together, do things at the same time, and be loving.

Sometimes it’s a pain because my heels are so high and it would be really nice to have his arm. And he’s such a great date! But it can be too much. I think especially for women, they can really lose their identity and just become ‘wife of’.
