LOS ANGELES: Actress Jennifer Garner says faith is important to her and the church is the "centre" of her social life.

Garner's Christian family still make regular visits to the Methodist church back home in Charleston, West Virginia, reports

“My parents did such a great job of raising my sisters and me in a world where faith was part of our lives. It's the centre of our social lives, as well as a spiritual centre,” Garner said on “The Dr. Oz Show”.

The 43-year-old, who has children Violet, 10, Seraphina, seven, and Samuel, four, with former husband Ben Affleck, doesn't believe fame changes people in a "huge" way and those who let success go to their heads were probably always driven to want recognition.

"I've lived in Los Angeles a long time and I know a lot of really incredible, down-to-earth people. I think a few people are kind of more into the idea of fame or whatever, but they were like that when they were kids, I'm sure," she added.

"I don't see people changing in some huge way. You are who you are."
