Jennifer Garner, soon-to-be-ex-wife of Cambridge homey Ben Affleck, doesn’t need her estranged hubby if she wants to make a hit in the Bay State.
Yesterday, Jen walked the red carpet at the Showcase SuperLux in Chestnut Hill at a screening of her new flick, “Miracles From Heaven,” with the real-life Boston Children’s Hospital doc and the real-life family who are the inspiration for the film.
Garner plays Christy Beam, whose daughter Annabel was diagnosed with two rare, life-threatening digestive disorders that blocked her intestines when she was 5 years old. Annabel was in near-constant pain. She was in and out of the hospital but nothing helped — until she fell 30 feet into a hollow tree.
Annabel was trapped in the tree for six hours and when she came out, she was symptom-free.
Doctors are at a loss to explain it, but her mother believes it was a miracle.
Yesterday’s screening was a benefit for Children’s Hospital.
“Miracles From Heaven” is in theaters now.
