Jennifer Garner Fangirls Over Ellen Page’s Dancer Wife: ‘I Cannot Stop Watching’ Her

Jennifer Garner is fangirling over Ellen Page‘s wife.

The 46-year-old actress posted her appreciation for Page’s dancer wife Emma Portner on Instagram as part of her #TutuTuesday series. Garner praised the dancer for her magnetic choreography and applauded Portner for making her Juno costar dance a little.

“I cannot stop watching anything and everything @emmaportner choreographs—she’s even made a sometimes dancer of her wife (and my own #Juno) @ellenpage,” Garner wrote alongside a reposted video of Portner dancing.

She continued, “Emma has translated her classical training (@nbs_enband The #AileySchool) into a ground breaking, kinetic, edge of your seat vocabulary of movement. Her choreography is so specific—you don’t know if the music is driving her or if her dance is somehow creating the music.”

Garner also volunteered to be Page’s date to watch Portner dance when she choreographs the New York City Ballet in the winter.

“@nycballet just announced Portner as a guest choreographer for the company this winter. Ellen—if you need a date to the premiere,” she said before adding a hands up emoji.

Portner and Page first made their public debut in September 2017 and later surprised fans by secretly getting married. The two announced the happy news in matching Instagram posts in early January.

“Can’t believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife,” the Flatliners actress wrote on Instagram.

Jennifer Garner Helps Sell Girl Scout Cookies Outside a Grocery Store: ‘We Do Have Thin Mints’

One troop has a secret weapon when it comes to selling boxes of Girl Scout CookiesJennifer Garner!

The actress — who is mom to Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 5 — revealed that she spends her weekends like many other parents this time of year, posting a photo of herself pushing the popular cookies outside of a grocery store.

“Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints,” she captioned a candid snap on Instagram, in which she held a homemade sign advertising the treats. She also added the hashtags “#tistheseason,” “#comeandgetem” and “#whodoesntloveagirlscout.”

In 2016, Garner revealed that she’s a true cookie salesperson at heart during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.

“I’m the one telling the girls, you know, ‘Try to talk about the gluten free because they’re a dollar more.’ Let’s have an upsell!” she said.

The star also shared that she went through “intense” training to become a scout group leader, but when it comes to selling cookies, most buyers aren’t phased by the fact that the celebrity is there.

“Nobody cares,” she said. “I’m just there with the troop.”

A young California Girl Scout recently made headlines when she posted up shop outside a marijuana dispensary in San Diego, selling more than 300 boxes of the famous cookies in just six hours, Fox 4 reported.

The dispensary, called Urbn Leaf, shared a photo of the Girl Scout posing in front of the dispensary holding a stack of cookie boxes while wearing her uniform and Samoa glasses.

“Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4pm! 🍃🍪 Have a friend that wants to #tagalong? Bring them with – shopping is more fun with friends anyways,” the post said.

The chief communications officer from Girl Scouts of the USA Kelly Parisi told the Los Angeles Times that each region of Girl Scouts has its own guidelines.

“All the money stays in local councils, and they make all decisions on how the cookie program is run,” said Parisi in a statement. “As always, our primary concern is the safety and well-being of the girls we serve. Volunteers and parents are empowered to relocate their booths if conditions change and the location is no longer suitable.”

Jennifer Garner Gets Chummy with Joe Biden and Olivia Wilde at Annual Save the Children Illumination Gala

Jennifer Garner had a fun –and charitable! — night out in New York City on Wednesday.

The actress attended the annual Save the Children Illumination Gala as a guest this year after serving as host for the last three outings. She posed with former Vice President Joe Biden on the carpet and was seen catching up with Olivia Wilde before taking pictures.

The Butter star, 45, later ditched her high heels and slipped on sneakers during the auction portion of the night as she ran around and gave signed Rex Ryan footballs to people who pledged contributions.

Garner also presented the Visionary Award to fashion brand BVLGARI North America and talked about her recent trip to Houston with Save the Children in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

“As flood waters receded, we expanded our response to include childcare programs because childcare centers…provide essential care after a disaster so that parents can rebuild their lives, put their lives back together, return to work,” Garner said. “Save the Children has chosen to make childcare recovery one of our signature programs in the United States, and today we’re helping more than 1,500 centers in Texas restore their services.”

Garner documented her trip to the area on her new Instagram page, giving followers a look at her interacting with children in the area.

The actress serves as a benefactor for the organization and spoke in front of Congress members at a hearing on Capitol Hill in March.

We’re Still Waiting For Jennifer Garner The Movie Star

The role of wife and mother is something Jennifer Garner knows well. It’s one she’s played in her last seven consecutive films, an identity that’s boosted her cultural relevance over the past decade, as her on-screen career has taken a back seat to raising a family … and, err, Ben Affleck

Films like “Juno” and “Miracles of Heaven” showed Garner making the most out of the “wife” character, delivering her best film performances to date, exploring the joys and challenges of motherhood. Similar roles in more forgettable fare (”The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” ”Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” and “Danny Collins”) have fallen by the wayside. And the less said about “Nine Lives” the better. 

Those clamoring for a Garner comeback of a different sort won’t find much to celebrate in “Wakefield,” which opens for a wider release on Friday. Based off the short story by E. L. Doctorow, the film finds Garner playing wife and mother yet again, but the typecasting could be easily forgiven if the material was deserving. Director Robin Swicord, who’s made a career out of bringing women’s stories to the big screen, is at the helm of her first film in years. And yet here these identifiers overwhelm fleeting moments of agency, as Garner’s primary function is to service the evolution of a husband who’s, well, kind of an asshole. 

“Wakefield” belongs to Bryan Cranston as Howard, a man who essentially ghosts his wife Diana (Garner) and children by going on a faux “Into the Wild” quest to find himself. Except instead of traveling all the way to the Alaskan hinterlands, Howard sets up shop in the attic overlooking his house, as he watches his family cope with his disappearance and presumed death. Apart from a handful of flashbacks where Garner gels well with a more adult, edgier tone, her scenes are mostly silent, taking place behind the attic’s glass window pane and through a pair of binoculars.

There’s a certain boldness in telling this story from the eyes of an unlikable protagonist, especially through the lens of a female director, and no one is better suited than Cranston to humanize an anti-hero. The film stays with Cranston’s character, even in his most arrogant and repulsive moments, as “Wakefield” is a deeply internal piece that strongly evokes its original source material. Exploring everyone’s perverse desire to pull the escape hatch on life is fascinating, but not allowing Garner a moment of respite under Cranston’s unrelenting gaze makes for a frustrating and far less dynamic experience. 

In a recent interview with Build Series, Swicord addressed these criticisms, agreeing that the story is the very “definition of the male gaze,” but claiming that the film ultimately subverts this power structure. There is something to be said about Swicord writing and directing a film that unapologetically empathizes with a middle-aged white male in crisis and not his wife. However, if her intention was to provide commentary on the ways men come to view women, she missed a crucial opportunity in the film’s ending to drive her point home.  

While Howard lives in self-imposed destitution, dumpster diving for food and communing with the town’s local raccoon population, Diana is left to her own devices. She later strikes up a romance with Dirk (Jason O’Mara), an ex-boyfriend and former work rival of Howard’s. Through flashbacks, it’s revealed that Howard was only initially interested in Diana because of what amounts to a pissing contest between himself and Dirk. It’s disappointing to say the least that Garner’s character so easily volleys back and forth between the two and is none the wiser.

Dirk’s encroachment on Howard’s so-called territory and an almost laughable come-to-Jesus moment during a rainstorm prompt him to return home months after disappearing. Before he walks through the door, however, Howard imagines the various reactions Diana and his family might have. In one scenario, they’re terrified, and in another, they break down crying. But before the audience is allowed to see her genuine reaction ― and a scene where she exists outside of her husband’s viewpoint ― the film cuts to black. The short story ends in a similar fashion, so the adaptation is nothing if not faithful, but the ending feels like a cop-out that unfairly robs the character of any semblance of justice. 

Curiously, “Wakefield” was filmed during the nearly one-year period after Garner and then husband Ben Affleck announced their separation. The actor was painted by the media as a philanderer in the midst of a mid-life crisis (see: fake phoenix back tattoo), while Garner held down the fort, shuttling kids back and forth from karate class. That’s why it’s somewhat baffling that given the material’s fascination with a husband’s failings, Garner chose to work on this project before eventually divorcing Affleck this April.

As she raises her three children, the actress is increasingly selective with her film work, especially leading parts that require her to be away from her family for long stretches of time. Maybe Garner has fallen victim to Hollywood’s pernicious stereotyping of women over 40, or maybe she’s had trouble finding roles that work within her constraints. She could be seeking out these roles, as she can relate in one way or another. Or perhaps, she just needs a new agent

The idea of Garner strictly as a wife and mother in her personal life and in her on-screen roles might be the dominant narrative of her celebrity, but she has already proven that she’s more than her megawatt smile, dimples and Capital One commercials. Five seasons on ABC’s “Alias” shot her toward superstardom, and cemented her status as an actress who could kick ass and emote with the best of them. At least, the Golden Globe Awards thought so. And playing a deranged woman who develops an attraction to a priest in the little known short film “Serena” confirmed that Garner could, yes, go dark. 

Despite making the most out of the little she’s given in “Wakefield,” you can’t help but walk out of the theater asking: What if? 

What if Garner made as many films as Affleck in the last decade? What if “Wakefield” took the time to explore what it’s like to be the one left behind? What if Garner finally found a role that allows her to be the movie star we always thought she could be?
