Jennifer Garner Talks Playing Ryan Reynolds’ Mom in ‘The Adam Project’
It was a New York night out for Jennifer Garner on the red carpet Monday for the premiere of “The Adam Project.”
“Extra’s” Special Correspondent Tommy DiDario spoke with Jennifer, who wore a Alexandre Vauthier dress and Vacheron Constantin watch.
“I’m so happy to be here… It just feels great," Jennifer shared.
Jen plays the mother of Ryan Reynolds as a 12-year-old in the movie, which centers around his adult character teaming up with his pre-teen self on a mission to save the future after accidentally crash-landing in 2022.
Garner smiled at the idea of playing Ryan’s mom (they're only four years apart in real life), saying, “No, I didn’t think I would ever play Ryan Reynolds' mom. But you know what? I would be proud to have him as a son.”
She raved about the movie, saying, “‘The Adam Project’ is just such a killer…Honestly, I cannot think of a movie that a family should sit together and watch more.”

Will her kids see it? She answered, “Of course they will see it if they want to. They don’t always like to watch me in stuff, but this one I think they will. They haven’t seen it — I cannot wait to watch it with them and my parents.”
Garner dished of her character Ellie, "I am a recent widow grieving the loss of my husband and dealing with a child who is an adolescent dealing with the loss of his father... Because of the magic of the movie, it all gets resolved in the most beautiful, heartfelt, satisfying way possible.”
"The Adam Project" opens March 11.
