Staying true to her promise during a commencement speech earlier this year, Jennifer Garner dressed as a mailbox for Halloween
Jennifer Garner is basically the best person in the universe (fight me) and her social media posts are a non-stop delight. Today’s no exception with the adorably hilarious actress revealing her Halloween costume that’s anything but “sexy.”
In a commencement speech Garner gave this past May at her alma mater, Ohio’s Denison University, she advised students to not take themselves too seriously in life. “When it comes to Halloween costumes, go funny over sexy. Why would you dress like a flirty nurse when you could be a mailbox?” Welp. She took that little quip all the way to Halloween and made good on her advice to go silly instead of scintillating.
“Live your truth, people. Happy Halloween,” she captions a video of herself emerging from a house wearing, you guessed it, a mailbox. That little twirl, we die. She’s honestly the cutest.
I mean, 100 percent zero shame in wanting to dress as a sexy whatever for Halloween. It’s a great night to go out as a naughty bunny or librarian or whatever your heart desires. But Garner’s advice is solid for those of us who would prefer going goofy over glam. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be funny on Halloween, but walking down the girls’ and women’s costume aisles at Party City tells another story. Go ahead and try to find a women’s costume that isn’t a sexy something. The message is loud and clear — this is a night for going scantily clad unless you feel like making a costume yourself.
And it appears that’s exactly what Garner did.
She’s apparently very into Halloween even weaving the holiday into a sponsored bit for Neutrogena’s makeup wipes.
How does she even make an ad entertaining and adorable? She is pure magic.
Last year, the mom-of-three dressed as a witch, complete with green face makeup (we hope she had those handy wipes back in 2018!)

Happy Halloween! 🎃 . Tomatillo Salsa 1 almost full gallon size bag of tomatillos (from my garden🤗). 3 cloves of garlic, trimmed but not peeled 2 whole jalapeños (or more if you want more spice) 2 or 3 limes Salt Olive oil 1 or 2 ripe avocados . 1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with tin foil. 2. Remove husks from tomatillos. Rinse and dry. Place on baking sheet. 3. Drizzle and coat with olive oil. 4. Add whole jalapeños and garlic to baking sheet. 5. Bake for about 30 minutes. You want the tomatillos softened, but not bursting. Jalapeños and garlic should be soft, as well. 6. Pull stems off jalapeños. Squeeze garlic from its shell. 7. Transfer everything to blender. Squeeze in lime juice and add a little salt. 8. Blend until smooth (leave the lid off a bit and cover with a towel to let the steam escape). 9. Transfer to bowl and let cool. 10. Refrigerate. 11. Add more salt to taste. Add diced avocado. 12. Cast a spell. Yum.
Jennifer, we adore you and your fun attitude toward absolutely all things. Please never, ever change.
