Violet Affleck Is Jennifer Garner’s Mini-AAA

During a quick errand run yesterday afternoon, Alias star Jennifer Garner accidentally locked daughter Violet Affleck in the car.

After parking at a grocery store in Brentwood, Jennifer jumped out of her SUV, only to realize she had imprisoned her toddler inside.

The Child Protective Services van is never around when you need one.

Luckily, Mama Garner was able to calmly instruct her and Ben Affleck’s two-and-a-half-year-old munchkin, an obvious advance-placement child, who adeptly unlocked the vehicle from inside and emerged with keys in hand.

If Jen had been driving one of the bombproof tanks from Tom Cruise’s fleet, mother and child might not have been so quickly reunited.

Looks as if little Violet must have inherited some of Sydney Bristow’s ingenuity.
