Actress Jennifer Garner graces the cover InStyle's January issue.  Inside, the five months pregnant actress is so stunning in a three page fashion spread that she nearly makes a baby bump the must-have fashion accessory of 2012.

In addition to movies, marriage and children, Jennifer dished a bit on politics and whether a political career is in her future.

On husband Ben Affleck, who is an outspoken Democrat: Will he run for office?

Every four years the subject seems to come up. I don't know the answer. I don't know what'll spark him, but he's really into doing what he's doing right now. Maybe if he could just be plopped into office without running? He'd be really good at it.

On whether she'll run for office herself.  Afterall, she was asked by some in her home state of West Virginia to run for the U.S. Senate when Sen. Robert Byrd retired.

 It's been made so unattractive. And it doesn't fit in with my life right now.

So nope, she has no plans to run.  She's enjoying life as an actress, producer, wife and mom-in-chief way too much for that.


Ben Affleck appeared on Hardball to talk about his new movie State of Play, in which he plays a congressman caught up in a bunch of drama.  He also talked about the dying newspaper business and the likelihood that Texas will secede from the union (the governor of Texas recently mentioned the possibility).  



Jennifer Garner_faces of influenza.jpgActress Jennifer Garner wants you to get a flu shot.  She is the new national Faces of Influenza spokesperson for the American Lung Association's Influenza Prevention Program.

"Women play an important role in a family. It's our job to take care of those we love, that's why I make sure my family is protected against influenza," Jennifer says.

Many people don't know how serious influenza can be. They think it's like having alergies or getting the common cold.  It's not. Each year, approximately 226,000 people in the U.S. are hospitalized and an average of 36,000 die from the disease and its complications.  2 out of 3 Americans are recommended to get the influenza vaccine, but many do not because they aren't aware that they need it.

"Look around, and you'll see someone in your life who should receive an influenza vaccination. There's the couple with young children, like my husband (Ben Affleck) and I, or your parents, who are over 50 years of age, or your friend who will be pregnant during influenza season. It's also likely you know someone living with a serious medical condition, like asthma, COPD, heart disease, or diabetes. My own father has heart complications."

Brad Pitt_Parade_Robert Ascroft for Parade.jpgParade Magazine recently suggested to Brad Pitt that he run for president.  The response?

"Oh, my God!" Pitt says in surprise. "I never thought about it. I have no desire at this point. Maybe I serve better by not going through that door." He laughs. "George should do it!" he says, offering up pal Clooney. "He'd be quite good. I think Ben Affleck should run."

Just as long as Brad doesn't endorse John Edwards.... That would cause a problem at home with girlfriend Angelina Jolie.
