New Delhi, May 11 (ANI): Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner has confessed that theatre was her first love.
The ‘Ghosts of Girlfriends Past’ star studied for a drama degree at Denison University, Ohio, but admits that previously she never wanted to be in front of camera was only interested in a career in theatre, reports the China Daily.
“I certainly never expected to be in front of the camera. Even when I was studying acting, I wouldn’t even go into the film department of my school. I was only about the stage. I didn’t even consider film or TV. I was a total snob,” she said.
“Then when I moved to New York and was trying to get a job on stage, and was broke and was offered a TV movie. I took it because I didn’t have any option,” she added.
The actress also revealed that her family was initially shocked by her decision to become an actress.
Jennifer’s father is a chemical engineer and mother an English teacher and the actress had originally started out studying chemistry at a university.
“I just realised that I liked drama more than science,” she said. (ANI)
