Jennifer Garner's parents were cut from a scene in the actress' new film 13 GOING ON 30 - because they wouldn't shut up.

The DAREDEVIL star pulled a host of favours for director Gary Winick to get her parents cast as extras in a restaurant scene but their brush with fame was left on the cutting room floor.

The actress says, "I was at a table and they were sitting at a bench next to me and I was trying to do the scene and I would look over and my mom would smile at me and I could hear them.

"Nobody told them they weren't supposed to talk and I could hear them. I'm doing this scene and I could hear my mom saying, 'Susannah just called...' - that's my little sister.

"So they ended up being cut, but they'll be on the DVD."
