Real-Life Romances Behind 'Valentine's Day'

"Romance is romance, but in addition, romance can just be breakfast over the tops of heads and just getting through the day. You've got to find a way make that romantic," she said during the press junket for "Valentine's Day."

"Somewhere around the second kid, I thought, 'This is really turning into something.'" she joked.

Garner also defended her thin frame when actress Shirley MacLaine put her and the film's other young actresses on the hot seat asking them during the junket what they eat.

"I'm nursing," Garner said. "When I'm done, I'll puff right back up."

Roberts added sarcastically: "Good, alright, I'll stay tuned for that."

Shirley MacLaine

The senior of the group, MacLaine, 75, has spoken and written about her past loves -- and past lives.

In this lifetime, she has admitted to many affairs, including with actors Robert Mitchum and Danny Kaye, French singer and actor Yves Montand and former Australian foreign minister Andrew Peacock.

But she was also married for 28 years to producer-turned-businessman Steve Parker and they had a daughter Sachi.

In a 2007 interview with Britain's Guardian newspaper, MacLaine called herself a "serial monogamist," and said she broke up with her husband because "he was involved with another woman and I was all over the place with different men."

These days, she told the paper, her relationships are with nature and her spirituality.
