Jennifer Garner's Mom's Advice Has Become Her Mantra (VIDEO)

When Jennifer Garner joined me on Mondays With Marlo this week, she shared some of her mother's valuable advice. Jennifer's mom told her that she shouldn't rely on anyone to make her happy -- she has to decide to be happy every single day. Her other mantra is "Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes in the morning."

Check out Jennifer's newest film, "Dallas Buyers Club," coming to theaters in November.
