Jennifer Garner Reading A NSFW Children’s Book Is Adorably Inappropriate

Jennifer Garner: Golden Globe-winning actress; mom to kids Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Sam, 4; and a parent who curses like a sailor? Probably not the last, but, thanks to Vanity Fair, we can see what it’d be like if she favored a very straight forward style of parenting. In a new video, the magazine has their March cover star read the expletive-filled best-selling children’s book Go the F*ck to Sleep. Sitting poolside, the actress looks sweet as ever, lullaby music tinkling in the background. But she’s swearing up a storm, and it’s incredible.

 

“The cats nestle close to their kittens, the lambs have lain down with their sheep,” she coos in a voice that makes you feel all warm inside. But then, her tone changes. “You’re cozy and warm in your bed my dear, now, go the f*ck to sleep.” 

 

The parody book, written by Adam Mansbach and illustrated by Ricardo Cortés, came out in 2011. Garner isn’t the first celebrity to do a dramatic reading—Samuel L. Jackson’s performance of the new classic in 2011 had us all in stitches. After you tuck yourself in tonight, play the video below to have Garner soothe you—quite aggressively—into a deep sleep.
