Her new movie centers on football, but Jennifer Garner prefers baseball.

“I’m so addicted,” the actress said. “I dream about what happens for the Red Sox.”

She didn’t grow up following baseball, but since marrying Ben Affleck — a famously devoted Red Sox fan — Garner has become every bit as big a fan.

“Give me a baseball game,” she said. “To me, sports are like the ultimate soap opera.”

Draft Day, opening nationwide on Friday, casts Garner as Ali, a lawyer who is among the key people in the Cleveland Browns administration.

She is a “capologist,” a specialist in the arcane rules that govern the National Football League’s salary cap.

In theory, the rules ensure that all teams spend the same amount on players, enabling less-affluent teams to remain competitive with the richest franchises.

In reality, the rules have endless details and loopholes, and a team with skilled capologists has advantages.

Ali also is the secret girlfriend of Sonny Weaver (Kevin Costner), the Browns’ embattled general manager, whose future with the team might depend on his success in landing the league’s No.?1 draft pick. Amid the chaos of draft day, she has to inform Sonny that she’s pregnant.

Jennifer Garner plays a capologist, or a salary cap executive, for the Cleveland Browns in director Ivan Reitman’s “Draft Day.” So, in our recent chat, the talk veered toward who the capologist is in the home she shares with actor-director Ben Affleck and their three kids.

“I’m very much the CEO of our household, for sure,” quipped the actress, radiant in an Alexander McQueen dress and Christian Louboutin pumps. “I was just laughing to myself today, thinking, ‘I need to leave a check for this person and a check for that person.’ I thought, Ben doesn’t know how much that person gets paid. He wouldn’t know what their last names are. It’s my job. Maybe we’re traditional in that way.

“There are those of us in our family who are willing to be salary captain,” she said with a smile.


Ali, Jennifer’s capologist in “Draft Day,” is the girlfriend of the Cleveland Browns’ general manager Sonny Weaver Jr., played by Kevin Costner, who has the chance to rebuild the team when he trades for the top pick at the NFL Draft. Frank Langella, Terry Crews, Chadwick Boseman, Arian Foster, Sean Combs and Rosanna Arquette also star in this drama.

When we think of Jennifer Garner, only one word comes to mind: normal. And, in the hectic world of Hollywood, we can’t think of a higher compliment. Despite the fact that she and her hubby have both recently starred in Oscar-winning films and have boatloads of money and fame between them, she still manages to take her children to and from school every day, sans nanny.

So, it’s no surprise that Garner is an endless source of wisdom on how to be an awesomely put-together woman. The actress is in the midst of a press tour for her new flick Draft Day (in theaters April 11) and stopped by the Four Seasons in L.A. to give some of us lucky reporters some expert advice. In the movie, Garner plays a salary cap executive for the Cleveland Browns, working under the general manager played by Kevin Costner. A financially minded sports nut may seem like a bit of a departure for Jen, but she was way more comfortable taking on the world of professional athletics than you might think.

“People ask, ‘What’s it like playing a woman in a man’s world?'” She said at the Draft Day press conference. “But, on any movie set there is one of you for every 10 men around you. Usually it’s the director, the key grip, the camera operator, the producers…you’re in a locker room, basically. So, I’m very comfortable in a room full of men.”
