Jennifer Garner has lent her support to many causes and charities, including becoming an Artist Ambassador for Save the Children. She was honored for her charitable work in 2010.

Now, the actress has said that it’s important to her to use fame to help others. “My view on fame? In the film business, you have perks beyond your dreams. You can make a sick child smile and raise money for charity, just by being well known … I also strongly believe in treating people well, whatever their job and whatever happens. I think good manners are important,” said Garner, according to Contactmusic.

The actress who is currently expecting a third child with husband Ben Affleck also said that while fame has had some negative consequences for her and her family, she remembers the positive. “The flipside is that you can lose the illusion of having a private and personal life and your family is intruded upon. But don’t complain – the good outweighs the bad,” said Garner.
