Jennifer Garner is a Model Parent

Why is it that Hollywood, moral depravity and detachment from reality go hand in hand? Our latest example? Jennifer Garner, about whom I had a completely neutral opinion until I read this article.

How's this for priorities?

"When Violet was born I had to remind myself that even though I'd worked so hard on acting and with such single-mindedness, I should not try to devote that much effort to her.

"It wouldn't necessarily be good for her."

Does anyone see anything wrong with this? Is it any wonder we're ending up with Paris Hiltons and Britney Spearses when these poor children have such noble and giving parents to fall back on? Oh, that's just fine, because they have a troop of nannies to rely on. And parents who play better role models on TV than they do in real life.

Oh, and this takes the cake:

"Since I became a mother, I cry more because I care about things more. I can't watch a movie where something happens to a child. And I've always cared about global warming and breast cancer, but now there seems to be an urgency about them."

Ooh, Jennifer Garner's so caring, I can just feel her heart bleed. She can feel guilty jetting around the country spewing CO2 into the atmosphere. She can be afraid of breast cancer. She can't bear to watch a fabricated movie where a child is hurt. But she's just fine with short-changing her own kids so she can build herself a bigger name in Hollywood.

Thank goodness nobody aspires to live like the Hollywood elites do.
