Actress Jennifer Garner treated her fans by watching her movie Peppermnint with them in a theatre.

The 46-year-old, who was encouraged by the studio behind Peppermint to watch the movie with fans in a public theatre, got emotional after seeing people reactions.

Garner also took to Instagram and posted a video showing her hanging out at the cinema and fretting about what the paying audience is going to think of the film.

Along with it, she wrote: “The studio encouraged me to go to the theatre and see Peppermint movie with an audience — maybe they thought I would conduct exit polls?

“But I learned something about myself on this experiment — I am a chicken. ‘Thank you to everyone who spent their weekend and their hard earned money with Riley North (Garner’s character) and me. If you go this week — you never know — I may be lurking behind a curtain at a theatre near you.”

Directed by Pierre Morel, Peppermint is an action thriller which tells the story of young mother Riley North (Garner) who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family.
