Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo Reunite On-Screen, 18 Years After '13 Going on 30'
The two actors play husband and wife in Netflix’s ‘The Adam Project.’
“It just felt so comforting to be back together,” Garner said during the movie’s premiere on February 28. “It felt like we were almost in the continuation of Jenna and Matty from 13 Going on 30.”
“It was great,” Ruffalo told E! News. “We’ve remained friends all these years,” he added, “and we sort of came back and it was like a homecoming.”
The Adam Project follows time-traveling pilot Adam Reed (Ryan Reynolds) who teams up with his younger self and his late father to save the future. Commenting on her role as Ellie Reed and Ruffalo’s character Louis Reed, Garner said that they’re who Jenna and Matty “might have become because they’re such a sweet couple.” “Even though you only see us together in one scene, it’s a scene that has to inform a lot of the movie. And so I think that our history kind of helps give it a little more depth,” she explained.
