Jennifer Garner Hospitalized For Exhaustion

by at . Comments

She survived the curse of Bennifer (the original Bennifer, that is) but the Phoenix heat in August proved too much for Jennifer Garner.

Ben Affleck's better half was hospitalized last week after passing out due to exhaustion suffered while filming her new movie, The Kingdom, out in the Arizona desert.

"Jennifer wasn't feeling well after working all day Friday in the Arizona heat, went to the hospital and was released the next morning. She is back on set and healthy," her representative said.

According to several reports, Affleck, who's been wrapping production on his directorial debut, Gone, Baby, Gone, in his native Boston, immediately bolted Beantown upon hearing of the hospitalization.

The Boston Herald confirms that Affleck was by her side, but says he didn't abandon his cinematic ship, because filming on his movie had already been completed. Regardless, the brief rest seemed to do the trick, as Garner was back on set the following day.

"She's great. Absolutely fabulous. Today she's in the desert, upside-down spinning around in a car that's pretending to have been blown up in 110-degree heat in Phoenix. That's my wife," Affleck said.

The 34-year-old former Alias star has been in Arizona filming the thriller centered around an elite group of government agents sent to investigate the bombing of a U.S. facility in the Middle East. Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper, Jason Bateman and Jeremy Piven also star in the firm, due out next April.

Next up, Violet's mom will flex her acting chops in Sabbatical, centering on a married couple who take a break only to have the husband go missing during their time apart, and Be With You, a remake of the Japanese film.
