Jennifer Garner recently revealed her children don't care much to see her on the big screen, but their reasoning is quite precious.

In an interview with InStylelast week, Garner shared her and Ben Affleck's kids Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11, "don't love" to watch her movies.

"My kids don't love to watch me in things."
"They do to be supportive, but I think it's a little weird to watch your mom kiss someone or cry."

She added they likely won't be watching her new AppleTV+ show The Last Thing He Told Me, a limited series based on the Laura Dave novel by the same name.

"The don't want to see me sad and they don't want to see me in a romance."
"They don't love seeing me play someone else's mom, honestly."

That's kind of adorable, actually.

As for watching their father, though, the kids don't take the same stance.

"It's different."
"They don't mind watching their dad."

People on social media agreed the children's reasoning for not watching their mom's movies is super sweet.



Even though they have their reasons, the actress' children seem to be alone in their position.

Garner's revelation totally tracks.

Affleck recently told The Hollywood Reporterhis children love to watch films and poke fun at him.

"The first movie of mine that my kids actually sat through was Armageddon."

But he revealed:

"They like movies where they can make fun of me."
"They just found the whole thing kind of preposterous, but they loved it."

He did admit, however, that he truly cared about the kids' opinion of Good Will Hunting, which he's watched with two of his three children so far.

Affleck noted his daughters were "engaged" and "interested" in the film, thus marking his "most gratifying experience."

Of Garner's two newest projects The Last Thing He Told Me and Party Down, she shared:

"The whole point to me is to mix it up and to be constantly turning what you've just done on its head and doing something different."
"Doing these two back-to-back was particularly satisfying to me."

You can catch them both on AppleTV+.
