Jennifer Garner says daughter loves stunt double more than her




'I have a problem,' she laughs

Jennifer Garner has joked her daughter loves her stunt double more than her.

The Kingdom actress says Violet, her 21-month-old daughter with husband Ben Affleck, is so obsessed with Shauna Duggins that she draws pictures and sings about her.

Jennifer told US chat show host David Letterman: "I have a problem with my child actually right now. She's obsessed these days with my stunt double, Shauna Duggins. She's a really good friend of mine. She's like my partner in crime. She's amazing - she's like me except cooler, hotter and with a better body. My daughter recognises this and makes me call her Shauna Girl and she draws Green Shauna, Pink Shauna, Blue Shauna.

"She'll turn any song or any book into a song or book about Shauna. The other night, I was singing something to her that I sing to her all the time - I love my baby Violet Anne. And she looked at me with so much love and then said, 'I love Shauna, Shauna, Shauna!'"

Jennifer, 35, also confessed she is worried Ben will soon start to prefer Shauna as well.

She added: "I'm afraid this is going to permeate my household and I'm going to come home and Shauna's going to be in my kitchen with my husband - cooking dinner. She's the fake me. I keep saying to Violet, 'She's not
really me! She's the other half. I do my own stunts!'"

Meanwhile, Ben has also had his own battles with feisty Violet recently. When he took her to the Museum of Manhattan on Tuesday (25.09.07), she was so intrigued by an interactive model of a New York City fire truck that she refused to look at anything else.

An onlooker told the New York Daily News: "She just loved the big red fire truck. Ben would point out something new to her and she'd shake her head and pull him straight back to the fire truck to play."
