Violet Affleck Talks Up a Storm
"Violet is the most verbal child," Victor Garber, a close friend of the tyke's parents Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, told PEOPLE at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in New York on Monday.
Garber, who was on hand to present an award to Garner, his former Alias costar, continued, "She's not even two and her vocabulary is daunting. She can talk about animals. She mentions where she's been. Today she sang, 'When You Wish Upon A Star.' "
And all this during a single lunchdate. "That child is so inquisitive and beautiful and so full of life," Garber gushed. "I'm obviously prejudiced. But she's an extraordinary kid."
With pretty extraordinary parents, of course. Affleck, 35, recently released his directorial debut, Gone Baby Gone. And Garner, also 35, – who just opened in in Broadway's Cyrano de Bergerac – was one of 14 women selected as this year's Glamour honorees.
"[Violet] is a very fortunate little girl to be in that family," said Garber, who was the only other person present at Garner and Affleck's 2005 wedding.
"When Jennifer works the hours she does, Ben understands. And when he's shooting a movie in Boston, she knows what that entails. They're magical together, they really are."
