Further joking about her bloody role in the movie, Garner shared a "#backtoschool" meme. Above one pic of herself all cleaned up reading off "fun summer ideas," the message says: "Moms: First day of summer."
In a selfie of the mother of three all bloody and bruised on the Peppermint set, the message touts: "Moms: Last day of summer."
Garner seems to be keeping things light despite the dark nature of her upcoming film. In the movie, her character, Riley North, watches as her husband and daughter are gunned down by members of the cartel. When the system is corrupted and the men walk free, Riley takes justice into her own hands.
The film's content didn't stop the actress from goofing off behind the scenes. Over the weekend, she shared a funny video of herself training with several stunt performers, all wearing tutus.
“#FBF: ok, this is an oldie but it still makes me laugh,” she captioned the clip on Instagram. “Stunt performers are game for anything — they didn’t bat an eye when I offered tutus for training. The stunt team that PLAYS together SLAYS together. I love these guys… #PEPPERMINTmovie.”
Things haven’t been quite as fun in Garner’s personal life lately. She recently took her ex, Ben Affleck, to rehab, and is continuing to support him as he seeks treatment. Watch the clip below for more:
