Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner with Their Girls!

Anyone who has had to navigate the process of getting your child into just the “right” school realizes how difficult it can be!  That’s why many parents pull out whatever secret weapon we have in our arsenal to make sure our kid gets into their top choice.  The same can be said for the A-List celebrity parents as they try to get their pampered tots into the perfect school.

In the case of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, it meant calling on their celebrity pals to make sure that their daughter Violet made it into the right private school.  Which celebrity wrote a recommendation for Violet?

In one of those head scratchers, Tom Hanks wrote one of the recommendations that ensured that Violet secured a spot into the school of her parents’ dreams.  We’re not exactly sure of the connection, but we do know that Hanks starred in Saving Private Ryan with Affleck’s BFF Matt Damon.  If only the rest of us had some A-List pals to call upon to help get our little angels into their top choice schools!
