Jennifer Garner cried her golden heart out during an interview with Today on Wednesday.
While promoting her new movie “Danny Collins”, Garner was asked to tell more about her recent Southern Living photo shoot with mom Patricia and sisters Susannah and Melissa. The Hollywood star welled up in reply saying, “There’s nothing like sharing the spotlight or anything else with your sisters and your mom.”
Today’s host Savannah Guthrie dug deeper into Garner’s feelings as the actress discussed the importance of the photo shoot with her family. “It makes me cry to see their faces,” Garner said. “It’s always fun for me to get my sisters dolled up, and my mom,” she added.

Garner could not stop crying as she recalled a recent Today feature about the Morales quadruplets whose mother died after giving birth to her four babies. Widowed father Carlos Morales is left to take care of his new born children.
“I’m sorry! It’s because of those babies and Leah Still, I just watched it and I just can’t take it,” the actress said. “The Today show is too tough for me,” she added.
Guthrie tried to comfort Garner by saying that the actress “has a heart of gold.” Guthrie also asked about Garner’s three children with actor husband Ben Affleck, who are, according to Garner, “all really good.”
The Today host even injected “boring topics” including tax day to help the actress take her mind off the things that make her so adorably emotional.
Today’s Matt Lauer could not help himself from declaring Garner as one of the show’s “best guests ever”.
Garner will star alongside veteran actor Al Pacino in the 2015 comedy-drama “Danny Collins”. The film is an adaptation of the life of ageing rocker Danny Collins who decided to change the course of his life after receiving a long-undelivered letter from the late John Lennon. “Danny Collins” is directed by Dan Fogelman.
