Jennifer Garner might not have been at the Dallas Buyers Club if it weren’t for Matthew McConaughey.
The “Mint” star revealed in a recent interview that she is ready to leave after an emotional breakdown on the set.
Garner, 48, had just returned to acting after the birth of her third child, Samuel, 8, and took on the role in the 2013 drama as a way to return.
“So that’s why I took it,” she told Tell Me More with Kelly Corrigan. “Because it was time to go back to work.”

The actress revealed that the work environment for the Dallas Buyers Club is very burdensome, as they are shooting the film in 21 days due to extreme weight loss and Jared Leto’s diet for their roles.
“There has never been a 10-minute break,” the Mint star said. This became a challenge for her as she failed to retire to pump breast milk for her son.
Garner recalls, “My tits went crazy. It was time to go to bed and we were doing a scene that was supposed to be light, and I started crying and I said, ‘I have to leave.’ I have to go home and be with my children. I just can’t do this anymore. “

“And from then on, when necessary, I give him a high signal and go to take care of it,” she said. “He said, ‘You can do both.’ You have it. You can do it. “
