Jennifer Garner Hair Cut models – Jennifer Anne Garner (born April 17, 1972) is an American actress. Following a supporting role in Pearl Harbor (2001), Garner gained recognition for her performance as CIA officer Sydney Bristow in the ABC spy-action thriller Alias, which aired from 2001 to 2006. For her work on the series, she won a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award, and received four Primetime Emmy Award nominations.
Garner was born on April 17, 1972, in Houston, Texas, but moved to Charleston, West Virginia at the age of three. She is the second of three daughters. Her father, William John Garner, worked as a chemical engineer for Union Carbide, and her mother, Patricia Ann (née English), was a homemaker and, later, an English teacher at a local college. Garner has described herself as a typical middle child who sought to differentiate herself from her accomplished older sister.
While Garner did not grow up in a politically active household, her father was “very conservative” and her mother “quietly blue.” She attended a local United Methodist Church every Sunday and went to Vacation Bible School. As teenagers, she and her sisters were not allowed to wear makeup, paint their nails, pierce their ears or dye their hair; she has joked that her family’s “take on the world” was “practically Amish.”
Garner attended George Washington High School in Charleston; she played saxophone in the marching band and was water girl for the football team. While Garner was not a bad student, she did not get “straight As” and instead wanted to perform “in any kind of production.” She participated in musicals at the local community theater, the Charleston Light Opera Guild, and took piano, singing and ballet lessons. In 1990, Garner enrolled at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, where she changed her major from chemistry to theater and was a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. She spent the fall semester of 1993 studying at the National Theater Institute at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut. During college summers, she worked summer stock theatre and learned to “really clean a good bathroom”. In 1994 she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in theater performance.
