Jennifer Garner is exhaling.
Her thriller "Peppermint" arrives in theaters Friday. And the three children she shares with her estranged husband, Ben Affleck, are headed back to school.
In an Instagram post, the 46-year-old actress sums up perfectly the spirit of summer's beginning and ending with two hilarious photos, one of which shows her covered in blood, presumably from the movie.
Garner created a meme when she titled the photos, Moms: First day of Summer. Moms: Last day of Summer.
In the first photo, a fresh-faced Garner with a double-wide smile is shown clutching a paper with "Fun Summer Ideas" written on it. The next photo shows a bloodied mom, no doubt having worn through any summer activity ideas and ready to have the house back to herself. The caption includes the hashtags #backtoschool, #iwillmissthembut..., #godblessteachers and #peppermintmovie.
A new movie, a Walk of Fame star
Garner has been busy this summer, promoting her movie about a vigilante mother who gets revenge on a drug cartel that killed her family and attending her Walk of Fame ceremony.
During the Hollywood Boulevard ceremony, Garner brought her three children (Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6) for a rare sighting. Other attendees were Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston and Judy Greer.
