Jennifer Garner Says One Of Her Social Media Photos Inspired Netflix’s ‘Yes Day’ Movie

If you missed it, Jennifer opened up about starring in the upcoming Netflix comedy, Yes Day, and how the idea was born.

“All of this started because I’ve done ‘yes days’ with my kids since my middle daughter was young,” Jennifer shared with EW. “She loved that book so much! One day, she asked me if we could have a yes day and that it’s all she wanted for Christmas and I agreed. It was before the trend really caught on. We started the tradition about eight or nine years ago and we’ve been doing them ever since.”

She added that one photo she shared on social media spawned the idea for the movie.

“I just love the way Allison came together,” she says of her character. “She was this adventurer who was up for any challenge in the world and then she had kids. Every day you’re just trying to keep everyone safe and fed and doing the best job that you can as a mom and you just lose some of the fun.”

“A lot of moments from the film come from my real life, like when my youngest daughter called me a fun killer. [Laughs] No matter what we do during our yes days, we always end it in a tent in our backyard playing a game of Chickenfoot, which we learned from Sarah Jessica Parker. That’s a tradition you’ll also see in the film,” she adds.

Yes Day is set to premiere on March 12.
