Jennifer Garner didn’t really need candles as she celebrated her 38th birthday on Saturday – given that there was enough star wattage at her party to light up all of Pacific Palisades.
Also singing “Happy Birthday” to Garner: Molly Sims, Jason Bateman with wife Amanda Anka, Tobey Maguire with Jen Meyer, Don Cheadle, Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Favreau and Laurence Fishburne.
The weekend of celebrating actually started on Friday, when Garner and older daughter Violet, 4, devoted part of the afternoon to pampering mother-daughter pedicures at Lemon Nails & Spa in Pacific Palisades.
