(beads clanging)
00:06
It seems like really good ASMR content.
00:16
Hi.
00:18
I'm Jennifer...
00:21
Garner.
00:24
And I am doing an
00:26
ASMR interview.
00:31
I think you're going to
00:36
reach inside and find a deeper happiness
00:39
than you found before.
00:42
I think you're going to
00:44
connect with people in your life,
00:47
and learn something new about yourself.
00:50
I think a good sleep is a great start
00:53
to any of those journeys,
00:55
and you're about to have one.
00:58
I'd love to talk to you a bit about a show
01:02
that I did from the year 2000,
01:05
to the year 2006.
01:09
It was called Alias.
01:13
I played a spy named Sydney Bristow,
01:16
and I wore a lot of wigs.
01:27
Now, in the vein of Sydney Bristow,
01:31
my character on Alias,
01:33
I'm gonna work on some wigs with some brushes.
01:42
(hair bristling)
01:50
(blows)
01:55
(loud brushing)
01:59
I wore wigs like this purple one...
02:06
For five years
02:09
squeezing my brains.
02:14
Getting all sweaty while I ran around
02:16
and fought bad guys.
02:21
But it was fun anyway.
02:25
Sometimes a little discomfort is worth it.
02:29
(loud brushing)
02:51
This wig reminds me of Ronald McDonald.
02:59
Or Sunkist.
03:03
If you're scared of clowns,
03:05
wipe that one out of your mind.
03:07
Cause it's time for a nice sleep, right?
03:12
Okay.
03:17
We're gonna try a different brush
03:19
on this beautiful...
03:23
Wig, for ghosts.
03:26
(soft brushing)
03:33
I wore a wig that was blonde and chin length,
03:39
and when I wore it, I was Swedish,
03:41
and I had blue contacts.
03:45
And it wasn't just that I loved the wig,
03:47
I wanted to be that girl.
03:51
Okay.
03:54
I did a film called
03:57
13 Going on 30
04:01
where I played a little girl who wanted
04:03
so badly to be grown up.
04:06
I magicked myself into being 30 years old,
04:10
and I was 30, and flirty, and thriving.
04:15
We shot in New York City and...
04:20
I got to be with Mark Ruffalo,
04:23
and he was kind of adorable.
04:28
And Judy Greer played my frenemy,
04:32
and we became friends in real life,
04:34
and that's pretty lucky.
04:37
In 13 Going on 30, I wore costume jewelry
04:42
because it was a little girl's idea
04:44
of what it was like to be grown up.
04:48
(beads clanging)
05:18
I got to wear really bright costumes,
05:21
and crazy makeup.
05:26
And it was like a fantasy come to life.
05:31
(bracelets clang)
05:57
Shh.
06:03
Great.
06:05
I think we're all learning a lot today, together.
06:08
(chuckles)
06:10
I know I am.
06:12
I have a movie coming out September 7th called Peppermint.
06:17
And that explores a mom rage on a whole new level.
06:22
I play a serious, angel vigilante.
06:27
It's like Alias on crack.
06:32
The film is named Peppermint because in the movie,
06:36
my daughter's birthday is close to Christmas.
06:40
And I tell her that she has peppermint in her blood.
06:45
To play off of the title of the film,
06:49
we're going to introduce some peppermint flavored items.
06:58
(plastic crinkles)
07:12
This is Extra peppermint flavored gum.
07:18
(paper crumbles)
07:29
(chuckles)
07:38
My mother always told me that chewing gum in public
07:41
makes you look like a cow.
07:49
And I'm feeling that right now,
07:53
just to share and be transparent with you,
07:55
since we're so intimate.
08:02
It's very minty.
08:04
(loud chewing)
08:08
Okay.
08:11
That was great.
08:14
(bag crinkles)
08:26
If I had my saxophone here,
08:30
I'd blow your brains out.
08:31
(chuckles)
08:35
But instead, I have a Lifesaver
08:38
that is peppermint flavored.
08:40
(plastic crinkles)
08:47
And gum.
08:52
Get that later.
08:58
I better put two in my mouth.
09:04
(plastic crinkles)
09:17
(chuckles)
09:24
I hope you're getting this.
09:28
I have very fresh breath.
09:33
I'm gonna add an Altoid,
09:36
but I'd like to warn you,
09:37
these make me sneeze.
09:47
So far, I'm experiencing...
09:52
(chuckles)
09:55
A kind of overwhelming sweetness.
10:01
And peppermint vibe, I'm sweating a little bit.
10:06
Not from discomfort as much as shock,
10:11
that my career has led me to this moment.
10:15
(chuckles)
10:19
(paper crinkles)
10:37
I think my mouth is so numb to peppermint
10:41
that I'll be okay with the sneezing.
10:46
Makes my nose...
10:47
(sniffles)
10:50
Once Upon A Farm is an organic, gold breast,
10:54
baby and kid food line of baby foods,
10:59
and purees, and smoothies, and apple sauces
11:04
that you'll find in your refrigerated section
11:07
of your grocery store.
11:09
This is a new company, and I'm one of the co-founders
11:13
because it's a product I would've fed my own children
11:17
when they were babies.
11:19
It's closer to fresh than anything on the market,
11:23
and it tastes great,
11:24
that so much that even grown ups like it,
11:26
I think you'll love it.
11:27
My mom grew up on a farm,
11:30
and I really believe in getting your hands
11:33
in the soil and growing your own food.
11:36
I love to grow what I feed my kids,
11:40
and I get them invested in growing it as well.
11:44
Now, we're going to use some pods, some soils,
11:49
and some seeds,
11:51
and I'm gonna plant something for you.
11:55
First, I'm gonna put on some S&M looking carton gloves.
12:10
(latex shuffling)
12:24
(soil stirs)
12:29
I think that's good.
12:32
Let's grow something together.
12:40
It's a variety pack of herbs.
12:52
(plastic crinkles)
13:07
Those gloves are bullshit.
13:20
This has lemon, lemon herb.
13:23
That's new to me.
13:33
Do you like the sound of a lemon herb being planted?
13:39
I thought so.
13:43
I think that this experience of
13:48
an ASMR interview
13:52
should be on the reg,
13:54
and I look forward to my next one.
