Long before she cozied up to Russell Brand on the big screen in Arthur, and even longer before she married hunky Ben Affleck, lovely Jennifer Garner tried to break into showbiz by performing classic theater favorites with the Georgia Shakespeare company, and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive photos of her first steps on a stage.
At just 22 in 1994, Jennifer stood out in two tougher Shakespeare plays, The Merchant of Venice and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
"Everyone has fond memories of her performances," company spokeswoman Stacey Colosa said. "No one was surprised when she went on to great things."
Mrs. Ben Affleck already looked pretty hot before an audience, don't you think?
