Jennifer Garner has to wear extra girdles

Jennifer Garner has confessed she has to wear more than one girdle to squeeze into her red carpet dresses.

The Alias star – who has a 21-month-old daughter Violet with husband Ben Affleck – has revealed couture gowns rarely fit her because she isn’t a Russian teenage model.

Jennifer told Marie Claire magazine: “I usually feel like, ‘No matter how many girdles you put me in, you will not be able to zip this.’ They always say to you – as though it’s something that should make you happy – ‘This is fresh from the runway.’

“But what I think is, ‘That was made for some 14-year-old girl from Russia! It was not made to go on my body.'”

The 35-year-old actress recently revealed she banned her co-stars from going near her boobs during fight scenes in her latest movie The Kingdom as she was breastfeeding Violet at the time.

She said: “It was so down and dirty that I had scratch marks that we had to cover up on my face for the next few days.

“But the guy I was fighting had to stay away from my boobs because I was breastfeeding. That was the one sacred thing.”

Jennifer plays a US government agent in action film The Kingdom which is set in Saudi Arabia.

The Kingdom also stars Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper and Jason Bateman.
