Playing Jennifer Garner Hilariously Reads NSFW Children's Book 'Go the F**k to Sleep'

Jennifer Garner got candid with Vanity Fair last week, opening up about her split from husband Ben Affleck and the #NannyGate scandal for their March cover issue. But the actress also showed off her silly side for the magazine, staging a dramatic reading of the hilarious, NSFW children's book Go the F**k to Sleep.

"The eagles who soar through the sky are at rest / and the creatures who crawl run and creep," Garner, 43, reads with a smile in the silly video. "I know you're not thirsty, that's bullsh*t, stop lying / Lie the f**k down down my darling, and sleep."

The best-selling book was written by Adam Mansbach, after the author grew overwhelmed by his daughter Vivien's bedtime routine.

"My daughter sleeps fine now, but she used to take upwards of two hours to go to bed," Mansbach told the New York Times in April 2011. "It becomes very frustrating."

The book was hilariously narrated by Samuel L. Jackson and spawned a G-rated version that parents could actually read to their kids called Seriously, Just Go to Sleep, as well as a 2014 sequel titled You Have to F**king Eat.
