Actress Jennifer Garner suddenly remembers that the recipe calls for softened butter, so she came up with a solution that will get the butter to soften faster.


On a recent episode of her Instagram cooking show, Garner, 46, had plans to make Rose Beranbaum's chocolate bread recipe for her children - Violet, 13, Seraphina, nine, and Samuel, six.

The "Catch Me If You Can" star woke up early at 5:30 am to prepare for the task. However, she forgot to bring the butter out the night before.

"Why will I never learn?" she can be heard saying in the clip, which already gained over two million views.

The desperate mother of three then came up with a genius trick. She immediately grabbed a cheese grater and grated the stick of butter simply like you would with cheese.

Grating the butter will result in a "softened-like" consistency, she explained in the viral video.

This hack is ideal for those times when you're in a pinch and waiting for the butter to soften isn't an alternative.

Garner, who gained recognition for her performance as CIA officer Sydney Bristow in the ABC spy-action thriller "Alias," became a talking point during the 90th Academy Awards.

An image of her apparently disgusted face made rounds on the internet after the star-studded awarding ceremony.

Her facial expression became a subject of humorous memes that quickly became viral.


Others joked that the actress might have made such a facial expression after realizing just how obscenely lavish her Oscars ensemble was.

It was reported that the jewelry she wore during that night was worth $825,000. This does not count yet the Atelier Versace gown that she sported.

That amount can feed a family of four on a thrifty budget for over 100 years. Some commented that Hollywood is full of pretensions.

While several stars lecture against the evils of modern American capitalism, events like the Academy Awards show just how deeply materialism has pervaded the movie industry.
