Actress Jennifer Garner and her eldest child decided to go on vacation together in Stockholm, Sweden. While there, they figured they’d go on a kayaking adventure.


However, their trip took a turn for the worse as per an Instagram post by the celebrity. In the end, the pair needed to be rescued.

Jennifer Garner, ex-wife of Ben Affleck, and her daughter Violet Affleck, 12, found themselves in need of rescuing after going on a kayaking excursion. The two managed to get lost at sea.

On Monday, the actress shared their ordeal with her followers via Instagram. In the post, Garner revealed that she and her daughter had gone to Stockholm for a pre-middle-school getaway.

According to the post, they eventually got saved by a man named Mattias Persson whom she hashtagged in her caption. Later on her Instagram Story, the actress posted a selfie of her and him smiling, back on land.

“On a pre-middle-school sneak away with my eldest. Did I get us lost in a kayak? Yes.”

She wrote across their image, “Our savior.” Clearly kayaking should be something she avoids in future unless she’s with an expert.


However, something that she’s great at is acting. In a new HBO series called Camping, we will see the star return to our television screens.


The series will start in October and was created by showrunners Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner. The eight-episode comedy series, which also stars David Tennant and Juliette Lewis, will be Garner’s first series regular role since she became a household name in the action series Alias.


At the summer Television Critics Association press tour this month, the star said, “Being the lead in a single-lead 22-episode show — I don’t think I could do it anymore.” She added that she didn’t know how mothers did it.

Garner is, however, getting back in touch with her hero roots in the upcoming action drama Peppermint. The film will hit theaters on September 7.

It’s about a mother-turned killing machine who avenges her daughter’s death.
