Garner graces cover of People’s annual ‘Beautiful Issue’

NEW YORK — Jennifer Garner graces the front of this year’s “Beautiful Issue” of People magazine with a cover story that cheers the way she balances Hollywood, business and motherhood.

The magazine revealed the cover Tuesday of the annual issue that hits newsstands Friday.

On the cover, the Texas-born, West Virginia-raised Garner, 47, is shown sitting on the hood of a car with grassy hills in the background along with the quote, “I’m grateful every day.”

The “Alias” actress is co-founder of a baby food company, acts as an artist-ambassador for Save The Children, and is mother to three kids with ex-husband Ben Affleck: 13-year-old Violet, 10-year-old Seraphina and 7-year-old Samuel.

“I’m starting to get to the point where I realize this job is not going to be forever,” Garner told people. “Not in the all-encompassing every meal, every moment, every day way that I have loved for the last thirteen years. It’s going to shift. But there’s beauty in how it works in episodes.”

Garner said that when she arrives home from a fancy photo shoot, her kids object to her glam get-up and want their mother back.

“They’ll look at me and say, ‘Can you wash your face? Can you put your hair in a ponytail and put your glasses and sweats on?’” Garner said. “And I see the compliment in that. They just want me to look like Mom.”

Last year the magazine rebranded its “Most Beautiful” issue as “The Beautiful Issue,” to make clear, its editors said, that it’s not a contest.

Singer Pink and her children were on the 2018 cover.
