Jennifer Garner says she 'bargained with God' to get off rollercoaster as she was terrified filming Yes Day
Jennifer Garner spilled the beans about how it was like for her to film family-comedy Yes Day with her recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The actress opened up about her fear of Rollercoasters while revisiting her ‘petrifying’ experience of shooting in a theme park. Revealing the extent of her terror, the star confessed how there were several unusable scenes in which she was seen ‘screaming’ and ‘cursing’ in fear.
Speaking on the matter, she told the talk show host how as the producer of the film, she realized the footage that can no longer be used because she was terrified of the roller-coaster. “I am so petrified of roller-coasters — I was a producer of this stinking movie, we couldn’t even use the footage because my hand was in front of Jenna Ortega’s face and I was screaming ‘Jenna, Jenna!’ over and over, cursing… not in character at all. Not usable footage.” Garner added how despite deleting the unusable scenes, the shots they did use were funny.
Garner humorously continued saying, “I was just basically making a bargain with God to get me off the roller-coaster.” Apart from the actress, Ortega, Édgar Ramírez, and Julian Lerner star in the film which is based on Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s novel. Speaking of the film, Garner said, “It’s just a day where the parents say yes and give in. In my family it’s more giving the kids a lot of attention… starting the day with ice cream, finishing the day in a tent in the backyard. And a lot of fun in between!” The parental comedy film will premiere on Netflix on 12th March.
