Jennifer Garner Talks Teaching Her Kids About Skin Cancer – and Her Family’s ‘Batman Mania’

05/04/2015 at 08:00 AM ET

Jennifer Garner kicked butt as Elektra, and Ben Affleck played Daredevil before donning the Batsuit, so it’s no surprise their three children are super into superheroes.

“Oh, there is going to be Batman mania at our house next year,” Garner tells PEOPLE of Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, getting ready to watch their dad save Gotham. “But right now, it can go from Batman, to Iron Man, to Spider-Man, to any of them.”

“And just the general ninja,” she adds, laughing. “I have a ninja at my house right now.”

Garner, 43, is using her power as a public figure to help save lives outside of comic books, joining Neutrogena’s Choose Skin Health campaign.

“Skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers,” Garner says, “and meanwhile there are more cases of skin cancer diagnosed every year than breast, colon and lung cancers combined.”

She continues, “Everybody’s been touched by cancer. Luckily for me, it hasn’t hit my immediate family yet, but if you look at the statistics, it’s something that is going to touch all of us,” she continues. “It’s within our reach to find a cure, it’s within our reach to find better and more efficient treatments that do less to hurt the body. It’s all happening, but we have to make sure these brilliant doctors are supported and funded.”

Halle Berry may be an Oscar-winning actress, but the Extant star says her most important role is mother.

Berry, who was awarded the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA’s Kaleidoscope Award at the third annual Kaleidoscope Ball on Saturday in Culver City, California, spoke about how her own kids have inspired her to be a humanitarian, and realize the importance of children.

“[Children] are the most important, most vulnerable, most valuable assets that we have on the planet. To protect them is our duty,” said Berry during her acceptance speech. “Whether we have children or not, it is our responsibility.”

The actress, 48, is mother to two — Nahla, 7, with ex Gabriel Aubry, and Maceo, 18 months, with husband French actor Olivier Martinez.

Getting out of the car, on his way to meet his little sister for the first time on Saturday, big brother Prince George could not have looked more cute.

“She says he looks really nice in blue,” Amaia Arrieta, owner of Amaia boutique in Chelsea Green tells PEOPLE, adding: “He is blonde with blue eyes and that’s why blue suits him so well – he looked so gorgeous!”

Alyssa Milano has been “overwhelmed” by the support she received after Tweeting her disappointment that her breastmilk was confiscated at Heathrow Airport for not complying with security measures.

“I don’t think I necessarily thought that it would create such an uproar,” the actress, 42, told PEOPLE on Thursday while speaking about her work with UNICEF’s Mother’s Day MOMents Fund, which provides gifts for mothers and children in need.

“I think that it just struck a chord and people ran with it,” Milano explains.

“I think that breastfeeding moms feel like what they do needs to be hidden, or not feel like they’re getting the appreciation that comes along with being a breastfeeding mom, and it meant something that someone was being vocal.”

Shakira: Spanish Parents ‘Speak to Their Children as Equals’

05/01/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Raising her sons in Spain is having a positive influence on Shakira‘s parenting skills.

In a new interview with Parents Latina magazine‘s spring issue, the singer — and mom to Sasha, 3 months, and Milan, 2 — admits the country’s approach to parenthood has shaped her own strategies.

“In Spain, parents speak to their children as equals and I feel that the children respond in return,” she explains, adding that she primarily speaks to her own boys in Spanish.

But Shakira, 38, says there’s plenty of positives about each of the social environments she’s been exposed to, including her birth country of Colombia and the United States.

“In all three cultures, parents are attentive to their children,” she notes. “Their dad [Gerard Piqué] and I both grew up in very close-knit families and that has made us openly affectionate parents.”
