Jennifer Garner's fight scene rule: Stay away from my boobs!

Violetaffleck_136904_cbbActress Jennifer Garner, 35, is well-known for her fight scenes on her former TV show Alias, and she was happy to get ‘down and dirty‘ again for her new film, The Kingdom, in which she plays a government agent investigating a bombing in the Middle East.

At one point, Jen says, ‘I had scratch marks that we had to cover up on my face for the next few days.’ Despite her willingness to participate in many of her own stunts, she drew the line at anything involving certain body parts, which were indisposable to her at the time.

[My fighting partner] had to stay away from my boobs because I was breastfeeding [Violet]. Andhe did. That was the one sacred thing. He could go for my head, pull myhair, just not the boobs!

I saw part of that fight scene on a recent video and it was brutal. Jen got shoved into a wall several times. What a trooper and what a mommy.

LMAO. That is funny, and I think I needed the laugh. 😉

That’s cute! When you’re an actor, obviously you get to use some bizarre sentences, like “Pull my hair, but don’t touch the boobs!” What are the chances that that’s a sentence that has never been uttered before? 🙂

That is funny. I miss Jen from her “Alias” days and really want to see “The Kingdom.” It looks great and already has major buzz.

LOL! That’s really funny. I know a woman’s breasts are even more tender and sensitive during pregnancy, but does it remain like that during breastfeeding?
