Jennifer Garner recently shared a throwback photo of herself with facial hair via her social media account.

The actress shared the snap to welcome the New Year. In her caption, Garner wrote, “New Year, New Me.” She also revealed that the facial hair was done as part of her makeup for a movie. However, the project did not push through because she found out that she was pregnant with her third child in 2011.

Garner also used a series of hashtags in her post, and she reiterated that babies are better than movies that is why she had to focus on herself and one of her kids during her pregnancy that time.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time that Garner shared a throwback picture. Just before the holidays, she also uploaded a photo of herself with her two sisters. The snap was taken sometime in the 1970s, and the “13 Going On 30” star revealed that it was her mom that made their dresses in the picture.

Weeks later, Garner celebrated Christmas with her siblings, mom and her three kids, Violet, 12, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel 5, as well as Ben Affleck. “They had a great Christmas together in Montana. It’s a lot of snow and everyone had fun. Jen loves Montana. It’s very quiet and she enjoys the privacy,” a source told People.

The source revealed that even though Garner and her kids reunited with Affleck for the holidays, the actress and the “Batman” actor flew to Montana separately. After the holidays, Garner and her kids stayed in Montana for a few more days, but Affleck returned home immediately after Christmas.

At that time, Affleck reunited with his girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus, and the two have been inseparable ever since. They were photographed walking on the streets of Los Angeles, and they were also seen hugging each other in public. The couple also dined out at a restaurant in Malibu.

After the holiday festivities, Affleck returned to a rehab facility in Los Angeles for his 30-day in-patient program to help address his alcohol addiction.
