Jennifer Garner Getting A Mammogram Is The Best Thing We’ve Seen All Week

by | Aug 27, 2020

Alongside our Year 12 formal dress and Justin Timberlake’s blonde tips circa 2002, mammograms are up there on the list of stuff we cringe just thinking about. Thing is, the latter is not negotiable – take Jennifer Garner’s word for it.

The actress is determined to raise awareness for breast cancer, which led her to film – and share on Insta – her latest trip to the doctor’s office.  

Watch the important footage below…

“Every October I have a standing date. For a mammogram,” she captioned the post. “For me, having the appointment on the books makes it routine, like the dentist. I know its scary, sisters, but just do it – the next best thing to an all clear is early detection.”

In the clip, the 47-year-old keeps things fun and light-hearted, crafting cartoons with boobs on a paper chart and pulling faces while her ta tas are squished and prodded. She also penned an encouraging message to all those currently battling the disease, writing: “To everyone in the thick of battle – respect and love and strength to you.”

Of course, her fans and famous friends were C.R.A.Z.Y for the content – specifically, Jen’s knack for bringing light to a subject that’s usually pretty darn awkward.

Kristin Chenoweth commented, “I could NOT LOVE YOU MORE.” And Olivia Wilde wrote, “You are a g darn treasure ❤️.” We’re right there with them, Jen.
