Even celebrities aren’t immune to the chaos of a holiday road trip, and Jennifer Garner is living, breathing, relatable proof!
The mom of three, 50, recently returned from a Thanksgiving-week car trip with her family, and she found some surprising items stowed away inside one of the bags they took along for the ride.
She revealed the contents of the seemingly magical bag—which appeared to hold more than Hermione’s enchanted clutch in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—in a new video on Instagram, and the Instagram Reel, which she captioned, “What’s In My Bag: Holiday Travel Edition 💼,” is sure to have any parent saying, “Same.”
“This bag just got out of the car after a road trip with three kids,” she introduced the montage, clutching a quilted navy purse. “I have no idea what’s in here.”
She opened the bag with a flourish, clearing her throat as she pulled out the first item: a game called Rat-A-Tat Cat. She had no commentary as she went through the first couple of discoveries, which also included a squish toy, but as she pulled out a half-eaten Twix bar, she couldn’t help but laugh. “Oh my goodness, lucky day!” she exclaimed, munching on the remaining bar and tossing the wrapper out of the frame.
Next up was a pouch full of chargers, followed by a straggler. “Uh oh, you’re supposed to be in your little bag,” she scolded it before pulling out a pack of playing cards and a packet of nuts. “Healthy!”
She couldn’t help but laugh at herself as she pulled out a bra next, followed by drugstore reading glasses, a pencil sharpener, a packet of liquid IV, Mentos (and more Mentos), room keys, and a Once Upon a Farm pouch.
After digging around a bit more, she also came up with a fistful of M&Ms, which she scooped into her mouth using the fork that came out next.

But she wasn’t done yet. The seemingly magical bag also produced “lip stuff,” which she vowed to keep organized in yet another little bag.
And that, as they say, was that.
“It’s the random M&Ms for me 🤣,” Reese Witherspoon wrote in response.
“I’m dead. 🤣,” cookbook author Amanda Haas said. “The Mentos, m&m’s, Twix, and the BRA are all in my bag, too! You are hilarious and just the best source of fun and relatable content here, Jen! ♥️🍭🍬🍫🍭🍬🍫♥️”
While the random bra certainly resonated with many, what really did it for most was the pausing to consume each of the old snacks as she came across them.
Stars—they’re just like us!
