Jennifer Garner Net Worth in 2021: How Does She Make Her Money?
Jennifer Garner is back in the spotlight thanks to her upcoming movie, Yes Day. The Netflix original is sure to find a considerable amount of audience attention, as family films have consistently seen huge streaming traffic in the pandemic era.
With that kind of attention, many viewers might be curious to know a little bit more about Garner and her life outside of filmmaking. With that in mind, here’s a look at the actor’s net worth as of 2021.
How much is Jennifer Garner worth in 2021?
Garner got her start in acting in 1995 and appeared in minor television roles in the early years. This included one-off appearances on shows like Law & Order and Spin City. She also starred in films like Mr. Magoo with Leslie Nielsen and Dude, Where’s My Car?
She landed her breakout role in 2001, playing CIA operative Sydney Bristow on the hit ABC series, Alias, from creator J.J. Abrams. The series ran for five seasons and generally involved Bristow acting as a double agent to infiltrate worldwide criminal enterprises.
The popularity of Alias led to more major film roles for Garner, including the likes of Pearl Harbor, 13 Going on 30, Juno, Valentine’s Day, and The Kingdom. In 2003, she played Marvel Comics favorite Elektra in Daredevil opposite future ex-husband, Ben Affleck. That role led to a solo spin-off film in 2005.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Garner’s net worth is today approximately $80 million. The site notes that this figure was last updated sometime in 2020, so it might be slightly out of date, but not too much.
Garner has served as a producer on a handful of projects, likely contributing to this figure, as producers tend to collect a higher percentage of profits than actors. Per IMDb, she has been credited as a producer on several later episodes of Alias, the 2011 indie film Butter, and Yes Day.
Garner and Affleck were married from 2005-2015 and had three children together, two daughters and a son. The couple split in 2015 and their divorce was finalized in 2018. She hasn’t remarried since then but did maintain a relationship with businessman John C. Miller from 2018-2020. Miller is the CEO of the CaliBurger restaurant chain.
Garner’s other ventures
Aside from her acting and occasional producing, Garner has irons in a few other fires. Most notably, she has been a brand spokesperson for Capital One credit cards and Neutrogena skin care products. If you’ve watched TV in the last decade, odds are you’ve seen her in commercials for either of those companies.
In 2018, Garner also co-founded her own business, Once Upon a Farm. which produces organic baby food. According to a Forbes profile, Garner was inspired by conversations she’d had with mothers raising their children in poverty conditions. In order to provide nutrition-rich food to infants in need, Once a Upon a Farm’s products became WIC-eligible in 2019.
