Jennifer Garner was "hit so hard" by her newest movie.
The actress stars in The Odd Life of Timothy Green alongside Joel Edgerton and CJ Adams. The fantasy drama tells the story of a couple unable to conceive, who wake up to find a ten-year-old child on their doorstep.
Jennifer has three children with husband Ben Affleck and has revealed how the movie speaks to her as a mother.
"This movie hits me so hard, and in a different place every time. And it's not because I'm in it, trust me, normally I can't watch myself, but this is such a gorgeous story I can't help but get wrapped up," she told Access Hollywood. "I see myself as a mom, all over the place, and I see myself as a little kid too, and as the sister."
Jennifer loves the feel good elements of the story. The stunning star thinks movie-goers will be thrilled by the film - but in a totally different way to the action pictures that are out at the moment.
"You will walk out of this feeling that life is good, like you wanna go hug somebody. These movies aren't made that often anymore," she added.
