Jennifer Garner is the cover girl for the January 2010 issue of W Magazine.  She is looking fabulous in Dior!

Check out some interview highlights below and a peek at one of the very cool photos from her photo shoot (where she’s rockin CHANEL) with Craig McDean.

On her attempt to to try to meet Ina Garten, aka The Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa:  “I know somebody who is a friend of hers, and she says she’s going to get us together.  I tried to get on Ina’s show. I tried to use my, well, you know…I say, use what you have to make the world better or for yourself! But eventually she just said, ‘I’m sorry, I only use my real friends on the show.’ I felt like, What are you saying? That we’re not friends? I know everything about you!”

On what her schedule consists of: “getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap, cooking dinner.  I live my life at these two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress.”

On becoming an actress:  “I mean, I didn’t ever watch Gilligan’s Island and think, Those people are actors.  I lived in West Virginia. Hollywood just felt like this total other universe.”

On still fantasizing about going to medical school: “When my daughter has a fever, I want to be able to look in her ears myself and not have to call someone.  I want to be able to tell, Is that spot on her leg ringworm or a dry patch?”

On wasting no time deciding to have kids: “We were together for a year, and we just started breeding.” “We were like, ‘Let’s have a baby!’ And eight days later . . . . ”

On husband Ben Afflecks crazy work schedule:  “I can live with Ben working crazy hours.  But I can’t live without girlfriends . . . It’s fine if he’s not there; I just need someone to bitch about it to.”
