Sydney Bristow would be proud: Jennifer Garner‘s girls are learning to master martial arts.
The actress, 42, wants her daughters to embrace their “femininity” by playing with baby dolls and knowing how to bake.
However, she also wants Violet, 9 next month, and Seraphina, 5½, “to be able to kick a guy’s ass,” she told reporters on the red carpet at the 2nd annual Save the Children Illumination Gala.
“That’s why they’ve been taking karate since they were little!”
But book smarts are equally important to Garner. “I want my girls to love math and I want them to think that being a scientist is the coolest job on the planet,” she said at the event, which honored her husband, Ben Affleck.
