"Oh bless her heart. Oh goodness, look who needed a big cry. And maybe a shower? But it's nice to know that you can still feel so much passion about something, right.

"So thank you, if you have ever heard of this show, The Office, then you should try it, it's really good."

Alongside the clip, she wrote: "My kids and I have spent months piled on the couch working our way through 'How to Behave as Grownups' aka #TheOffice. "Apparently we are sensitive people—the finale hit us pretty hard. When I realized I’d accidentally shot my farewell testimonial in slo-mo I realized: your Monday might need this, too." [sic].

Jennifer's followers were quick to comment on her reaction, including Angela Kinsey, who played Angela Martin in the show.

She wrote: "Omg!! @jennifer.garner I am only just seeing this (we had no air conditioning for the day so long story short but I'm only just catching up on things)!! I love this. I love you and your family and just so you know the finale makes me bawl my eyes out too!"

Another follower added: "THE BEST. I had to get over the fact that Pam and Jim weren't together in real life." A third commented: "Every sweet moment between Pam and Dwight gets us, every single time."

Jennifer is a doting mum to Violet, 14, Seraphina, 12, and eight-year-old Samuel, who she shares with ex-husband Ben Affleck.

Over the past few months, the Hollywood star has been keeping fans updated on her family's experience in lockdown.

During a virtual interview on The Ellen DeGeneres show recently, she admitted they’ve all had their "moments" during lockdown, but that all in all, "they have been great".

"They’re cleaning the house and helping out and they’ve been really good," she added.
