"When I first moved to New York I lived for nine months on some woman's kitchen floor. She had this mushroom that she kept alive in these juices that was right next to my futon, and once a week she'd drink it. I fled in the dead of night."
Why we love Jennifer Garner
Part action girl part rather good actress, Jennifer Garner is a Golden Globe-winning beauty who earned an army of fans as the sexy-but-serious Sydney Bristow in long-running US spy drama Alias.
She met her Matt Damon-obsessed hubby while on the set of Pearl Harbour, loving blossoming as the disaster – both artistically and commercially – was going on all around them. Often described as "wholesome" and "un-Hollywood" in the press, the alluring brunette first started out on a chemistry degree before switching to a drama course.
TV work then came quickly if infrequently, but today she's said to be one of the best-paid actresses in America. And thanks to that fool of a hubby, she's also now hooked on the Boston Red Sox.
