The beloved and luminous actor who has played in great works such as 13 on the way to the 30, Juno, and Alias received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, August 20. And duh, Jennifer Garner's Walk of Fame acceptance speech is all charming, delicious and goofy. But really, what else would you expect from the person who gave us that legendary Oscars meme? Or gave us that "What's In My Bag" Instagram video in which she found a … amethyst geode and about a thousand heart stickers in her backpack? Or a chicken named Hennifer? Or did she share a beautiful, loopy video she made after dentistry? Leave it to Garner to make a joke about her parents dropping their chewing gum on her star to come back in the most endearing way.
After her friends and former co-stars Judy Greer, Steve Carell and Bryan Cranston had introduced the woman of the hour, Garner began her speech by thanking them and adding, "I could not ask better friends than the three of you." also expressed gratitude to everyone who has gathered on Hollywood Blvd. that day, and then thanked everyone with whom she worked, everyone she worked for, her family and her friends.
Garner went on,
"A special shoutout to my niece and nephew who miss their first school days to be here today, because in the Garner family fame is more important than education, which is clearly not true.
Those were not the only jokes that Garner had in her sleeve. She also asked her parents not to spit out their chewing gum as they walk over her star and add, "I was just kidding, Mom, I'm sorry, I know you would never."
And yes, Garner also had a serious message for her parents. She said,
"I want you to remember … That it was your non-judgmental, infinitely loving acceptance of me and whatever I hoped for that made it possible, thank you for giving me more to whom my sisters and I are than what we do. & # 39;
Oh, you feel like your heart might burst? Well, stop her promise to her three children, Samuel, Seraphina and Violet. Garner said,
"For my children, when you walk over this star, I want you to first remember that I love you, and that this is about hard work, and good luck, and not much else." You define me, not this beautiful place. in the sidewalk.Also, for the record, do not spend too much time on Hollywood Blvd. "
And thanks ET Canada, you can view Garner's speech.
And hey, while you're here, why would not you look at Greer's sweet speech about her dear buddy? Specifically, the excerpt where she tells the time on the 13 on the way to the 30 set when Garner bought Jamba Juice for everyone on the set because a) it was the & # 39; 00s, and b) Garner Jamba Juice wanted so that they & # 39; just assumed that everyone would want to have Jamba Juice & # 39 ;. Oh, and she also taught Greer how to text, and while you make that movie. The 00s hit again.
