"She was one of the first people I met when I stepped onto Los Angeles soil. And she was very maternal, even then. She wanted to take care of me, make sure I was OK all the time. The first time I saw her, I was in the production office when we were shooting the pilot and this girl comes in, glowing. She had just baked cookies, which she was offering to me, and I was like, 'That is who's playing Sydney Bristow?'" Actor BRADLEY COOPER always knew his ALIAS co-star JENNIFER GARNER would make a great mother. The actress has two children with husband Ben Affleck.
