Jennifer Garner Shares Bloody Transformation for Upcoming Movie
By Jackie Willis
Jennifer Garner doesn't always leave the makeup chair looking better than when she first sat in it.
On Wednesday, the 45-year-old actress shared a video on Instagram of her dramatic transformation for the upcoming movie Peppermint. In the footage, Garner is initially seen bloody and bruised, but shows how her makeup team cleans her up after she's done filming.
"After decades and countless movies making me look better than I should, Deborah La Mia Denever and Peter Tothpal are happy to team up with Bart Mixon to make a mess of me every morning for #PEPPERMINTmovie," she captioned the post. "I’m just happy they clean me up enough to be mom at the end of the day. #mostimportantpartoftheirjob #nofacetimingfromtheset #dontscarethekids"
In the thriller film, Garner plays Riley, a young mother who finds herself with nothing to lose, and is now going to take from her rivals the very life they stole from her. The revenge movie also stars Method Man, Chris Noth, John Ortiz and John Gallagher Jr.
This is the second time this year that the mother of three has shared one of her major movie transformations. A week ago, she posted a selfie that showed her sporting a full beard and a short haircut. "New Year, New Me," she quipped in the caption before further noting in the hashtags that "#themovieneverhappened" because "#turnsoutiwaspreggers" and "#babiesarebetterthanmovies."
