Where the cast of 13 Going On 30 is now
Jennifer Garner’s role in “13 Going on 30” was much appreciated. Entertainment Weekly’s Owen Gleiberman especially loved the “Thriller” dance scene and even called it the moment Garner became a star. “There is nothing suave or measured about his attitude,” he says. “She dances with the free heart of a teenage girl who has yet to learn how to be cool.”
Although Garner’s performance was considered magical and innocent, it is not the first time that she has gained public attention. In fact, before, during and after becoming adult Jenna Rink, she was known to have starred in JJ Abram’s “Alias” from 2001 to 2006. She portrayed Sydney Bristow, a student and double agent for the CIA who had to create several identities to carry out its missions.
Garner has been busy since “13 Going on 30” and the end of “Alias”. In 2007, she starred as Vanessa Loring in “Juno”, alongside Elliot Page. She appeared in “Love, Simon, “an adaptation of” Simon against the Homo Sapiens Agenda. “She also provided the voice of Mama Llama in Netflix’s” Llama Llama “based on the children’s book series of the same name. During her forties, she participated in a virtual re-enactment of” The Princess Bride “as a princess. Buttercup Garner has more projects planned for the near future, including “Yes Day” – in which she is also a producer – and “The Adam Project”.
