Bless her heart! Jennifer Garner is just the cutest, proving that she can be so emotionally moved after watching all nine seasons of The Office that she broke down in tears. The 48-year-old and her three kids Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and Sam, 8, by ex-husband Ben Affleck started watching an episode a day of the former NBC sitcom at the beginning of quarantine in March, and now that they’re done, she’s missing her TV family from Dunder Mifflin so much. Since she’s an absolutely creative goddess with her Instagram account, Jennifer showed a video of herself having all the feels at their marathon viewing of the beloved show coming to an end.
“My kids and I have been…” she began telling the camera with red eyes. Jen was seen wearing a Dunder Mifflin t-shirt in honor of the fictional paper sales company featured on the show. She even stood in front of a multicolored message board with “Thank you Dunder Mifflin” written on it, so the Elektra star and her kids had turned into major The Office mega-fans.
The video then turned into slow-motion, showing Jennifer in different stages of sobbing (which she later explained the slow-mo turned out to be an accident). She then set it to a narration once she got all of her emotions out of her system. “You’ll never guess what show my kids and I watched an episode a day throughout quarantine and guess what, we finished it! And guess what, it gave me some really big feelings,” Jen explained in the sweetest voice about how moved she appeared in the vid.
“Oh bless your heart. Oh look who needed a big cry and maybe a shower would have been helpful,” she jokingly continued while describing herself in the weepy video. “But its just nice to know that you can still feel so much passion about something, right? So thank you. If you’ve ever heard of the show The Office, you should try it. It’s wonderful,” she concluded. One of her daughters could be heard off camera saying Jim’s phrase while mocking Dwight, “Bears beets Battlestar Galactica,” which Jen smiled and repeated back to the camera once the video returned to normal speed.
Jen had fans and celebrity pals loving her honesty over feeling so at a loss after she had completed watching The Office‘s nine season run, which aired on NBC from 2005-2013. Actress Zoe Saldana left hearts and applause emojis in the comments, while Kimberly Williams Paisley told her friend, “Oh my LORD this is the best thing EVER. Thank you. #theofficeforever #slowmobeatsbattlestargalactica.”
Probably the best comment came from Pam Beesley herself, as The Office star Jenna Fischer told Jen, “Oh Lady!! This is the sweetest and most wonderful post!! Sending you lots of love and if you want to start over @angelakinsey and I are re-watching for the podcast. We are in the middle of Season 3 and have major feelings about lots of moments (Art Show, Dwight comforting Pam…).” Sounds like a great way for Jen to get back into her emotions about the show while hearing the stars discuss it.
