Jennifer Garner Says She Most Often Gets This Surprising Compliment From Fans

Jennifer Garner has met thousands of fans throughout her illustrious acting career, and they are quick to praise her for any number of things, such as her looks or her work. There is one compliment that the Alias star gets way more than others, however, and that message may come as a shock to many.

"They tell me I'm prettier in person than I am on screen," the 47-year-old revealed to People, noting that she hears it "every day at some point" if she's out and about.

"I don't know what it is, but that is by far what I hear the most," she added.

The compliment may come as a surprise to many of actress' fans, especially since she is the cover star for this year's Beautiful Issue of People magazine, but Garner explained that she feels "really lucky" for the interactions that she has with her fans.

"[They] tend to feel like I'm the girl they grew up next to or an old friend, and they want to continue a conversation that I didn't know we were having," she said.

While Jennifer's fans typically have nothing but nice things to say to the actress, the internet is a different story. The Elektra star makes it a point to try and avoid reading about herself or checking out pictures online.

"It's not that I don't care, it's that I care too much," she said of her decision to ignore posts and articles about herself on the world wide web.

One platform she does keep up with, however, is Instagram. Jennifer created her account on the popular social media platform less than two years ago, but her posts have quickly become popular among her 5.8 million followers, especially the ones for her Pretend Cooking Show.

Just yesterday, Garner took to her Instagram account to celebrate the 15th anniversary of her hit film 13 Going on 30, which has became one of the actress's most popular pieces of work and was even referenced in Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" music video.As for the next step in her career, Garner says she is focusing on her company Once Upon a Farm, which produces cold-pressed organic baby food. She also explains that she plans to continue serving as an ambassador to Save the Children, all while juggling the film projects she is currently working on.
