Jennifer Garner talks about dehydration scare while filming 'The Kingdom'

08/27/2007 at 07:49 PM ET

In a new interview with Access Hollywood, actress Jennifer Garner, 35, reveals the true cause of her medical problems on the set of The Kingdom last summer. 

The film, which takes place in Saudi Arabia, was primarily shot in the Arizona desert where temperatures can reach 140-degrees on paved surfaces.  A daunting challenge in and of itself, the scorching heat was only magnified for Jennifer, who was breastfeeding daughter Violet Anne at the time and found herself rapidly dehydrated.  Said Jennifer,

I succumbed to the heat a couple times. I was still breast feeding my baby at the time and so … Yeah, everything your body needs, all the electrolytes goes to the baby, and so my system was all screwed up and I had heat stroke.

Violet, 20-months, is Jennifer’s first child with husband Ben Affleck

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
