Jennifer Garner says she likes to keep her work and personal life separate.
The 45-year-old actor believes one's career is a part of their life and not their entire life itself, reports Entertainment Tonight.
"Anytime that you're playing someone who is going through something, you have to just figure it out, and you actually - believe it or not - don't use your own life as much as you might think. It really is its own bear to get through.
"You just get into that place. That's your job, and then you shake it off, because you have to go home and raise your kids. It's just like any other time I do a scene with an emotional place," says Garner.
The actor, who plays a single mother in new movie "The Tribes of Palos Verdes", says she does not bring home the drama that her character demands from her as it would be unfair to her children.
Garner filed for divorce from actor Ben Affleck in April.
The former couple has three children - Violet 11, Seraphina, eight, and Samuel, five.
