Jennifer Garner rose to fame playing a hard-edged CIA agent on the television show "Alias," but in recent years, she's gravitated toward less action-heavy roles. From "Juno" to her upcoming movie, "The Odd Life of Timothy Green," the actress has showed off a softer side of herself on the big screen. In "Timothy Green," which hits theaters Aug. 15, she plays a wife struggling with infertility issues who has a child magically sprout from her backyard. In real life, of course, Garner is a mother of three with husband Ben Affleck.

Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith rocked out, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got the word out and a constellation of celebrities took their wallets out -- to the tune of $830,000 -- at a charity event and mini-concert organized by John Varvatos and funding a program helping child victims of sexual assault. That brings the total raised by the annual event over the last decade to $3.53 million, with funds going to the Stuart House , a program created by the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center to serve the special needs of sexually abused children. While the silent auction and a spirited live auction helped the event easily outstrip last year's $700,000 fundraiser , honorary co-chairs Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck underscored the benefit's other goal of shining a light on the topic of childhood sexual abuse -- and programs that deal with it. "When I first visited Stuart House eight or nine years ago, I was so impressed with how safe it felt," Garner told the crowd. In his comments, Affleck explained that he got involved because his wife had hosted an earlier incarnation of the event.
