Alias star Jennifer Garner recently released * this * legendary pool scene from the J.J. Abram's spy thriller, this time with a funnier portrayal of the sexy moment - and although she had promised her manager and publicist that she would never share the video, she released it anyway.
"Obviously they don't want you to purposely post anything unattractive," Garner tells EW with a laugh. “They said, 'Jennifer, you can look good in a bathing suit! Don't expose that!' Basically: "You will never work again."
Garner can't stop laughing when she explains why she posted it anyway. "I just said, 'I'll never look like this in a bathing suit. There's no way. And I think it's funny," she says. "And today is the day it goes up!"
The fan-favorite, Emmy-nominated series Alias ran from 2001 to 2006. Garner, who will next appear in the Netflix comedy film Yes Day, admits she hasn't seen it since it aired. “So I kind of came across this clip and just thought, 'Are you kidding me? I should have been walking around in a swimsuit all year and I didn't even know it!'” She says with another laugh. "Like what the hell?"
Would she be interested in bringing Alias back now in times of reboots and revivals? "Definitely," she says and laughs again.
Earlier this month, Garner celebrated hitting 10 million followers on Instagram by posting a side-by-side recreation of the pool scene in which she opted for a wetsuit and slippers instead of rocking the blue swimsuit and stilettos. "To celebrate all 10 million of you, here is THE video I promised my manager (hi, @nksolaka) and publicist (hi, @mereowass) that I would never post," she wrote in the caption.
