Jennifer Garner’s Very Earnest Grad Advice Involves Dressing Like a Mailbox

Jennifer Garner, famous actress and dorkiest person on Instagram, got invited to give a commencement speech at Denison University in Ohio, and it was about as dorky and sweet as you might hope. Garner’s advice, which she helpfully cut together into a highlights real on her account, includes the note that you should dress funny, not sexy at Halloween parties (personally, I think you can do either or both, but it’s up to you!); that “nothing looks better in your 50s than sunscreen in your 20s!”; and “don’t smoke, and don’t vape — I’m sorry, somebody has to say it” (listen up, Ben). If you’d prefer to get the full Garner experience, including jokes about Steve Carell, her speech starts just after the hour mark at the video below. Sadly, at no point does she put on an Alias wig.
