Jennifer Garner in ‘Peppermint’: ‘You feel her pain every time she hits’
Hell has no fury, like a woman who sees her husband and daughter being shot dead in front of her. That’s the premise of Jennifer Garner’s new action movie “Peppermint,” which premiered on Tuesday night at the Regal Cinemas in downtown Los Angeles. Arriving at the red carpet, Garner jumped out of the car, pulled up her black Narciso Rodriguez dress and ran across the street, where a crowd of autograph dogs gathered, shouting her name.
It turned out that these fans were the only ones to have some time with Garner, since four days before, and six days after she drove her husband Ben Affleck to a treatment center in Malibu, it was announced that there would be no interviews at the clinic. Red folder. Instead, arrivals would be restricted to only one photo called.
Ironically, the character of Garner pays dearly for the bad decisions made by her husband on the screen. His suburban football patrol turned urban executes drug traffickers, dirty cops and a corrupt judge while spitting lines like: “You did not serve justice, your honor”.I will.”
Director Pierre Morel, who also directed “Taken,” gave a short speech before the film began and thanked his star, whom he described as “the most wonderful, dedicated and kind person I have ever met.”

The subsequent party took place not far away, and yet a world away, from the setting of the film of the film in the Asian restaurant WP24 of Wolfgang Puck, which stands on the Ritz-Carlton.
“Jennifer took off the booty,” said one of the first guests to arrive, Shauna Duggins, who has been working as the actress’s double acrobatics for almost 20 years (the two have been inseparable since the third episode of the television series of Garner “Alias”). Duggins estimates that Garner performed 98% of his own action scenes and trained for three months before filming. “Every fight scene is her, there are some successes, and you see that her face touches the ground,” Duggins told Variety. “Obviously she’s good at the fights of ‘Alias’ and ‘Daredevil’ and ‘Elektra’ and ‘The Kingdom’. [But this] was really hard and gritty, you feel her pain every time she gets hit: you see her face feel the pain “.
“What makes her a phenomenal actress is that you can see her in these beautiful love stories and comedies and then she can go straight into a revenge movie [like this],” Duggins added. “Not only are you killing people, but you feel all your anguish, your physical pain and your emotional pain, and that is why the public is supporting you, you want her to win.”
Duggins hopes that a big win at the box office could trigger a sequel or, better yet, a franchise driven by women. “Do not we all dream that it can be? Absolutely,” she said. “I mean, look ‘Taken’, it was great and then they did two more, Jen can do it, obviously.”
Garner, meanwhile, was quite excited about the young actress who played her daughter, Cailey Fleming, who probably had already passed her bedtime. The crowd slowly separated from them as they performed what began as an impromptu dance, then became a choreographed routine without problems. Laughing, Garner picked Fleming up in his chiseled arms and spun her around.
