Jennifer Garner is not going to let the haters ruin her holiday season, especially when it comes to "The Nutcracker." The actress shared a fun video on her Instagram page pushing people to go out and find local performances of the Christmas classic, which plays at tons of theaters during the holidays.
"For an instant jolt of 🎄🎅🏻🌟 — there is still time to hunt down your local Nutcracker! (Hey Southern California—@abtofficial has 7 shows left at the @segerstromarts 🤗" she captioned a video of herself dressed up as the title character.
In the video, Garner takes care of everything before the big performance, including sound checks, tying ballet slippers, hair & makeup, and even slaying a few rats.
However, one of Garner's so-called fans didn't think much of her fun holiday post and angrily lashed out, insulting her professional career.
"What do you call a movie star who makes no movies?" the user wrote in Garner's comments.
She immediately responded to the critic, answering, "a mom!" alongside some laughing emojis. It was a pretty great response, and Garner's fans immediately praised the star for firing back and went after the online troll for their insensitive remark.
"How many movies have you been in? @jennifer.garner has starred in TV and Movies for 20 years all while raising a family mostly alone and all with a smile and sense of humor," one fan wrote, defending the star.
" the fact that you have anything negative to say about this happy post says so much about you!" wrote another.
A third fan dropped some major support for Garner, writing:
"you are and always will be a great actress! And WE all applaud you for prioritizing yourself and family above work... I feel like you are so grounded and not jaded, you are one of a kind and very funny. You’ve been through your hurdles in life and marriage and you shine! ✨ You deserve the best because you put that out to the universe... to us. Keeping us laughing and seeing you are just like us - thank you ✨happy holidays to you and your family."
Jennifer Garner has been acting for quite some time, and has afforded herself the ability to work when she wants and also pursue other things that she is passionate about. One of those passions happens to be cooking and baking, with the star sharing many videos of things she whips up in the kitchen for her three children.
She recently showed off a how-to video of some 10 Grain Bread.
"I saw a meme recently that said any friend making homemade bread deserves your TLC because something is WRONG WITH THEM. Well...🙋🏻♀️😬👵🏻. If you’re going to bake bread like a 🤓, make it worth your while."
