It was apparently going to be pretty expensive to tear the ivy out of the ground, so Jen decided to find a way to take care of it herself.

"I rented a herd of goats," Garner said. "They eat ivy!"

Yes, you heard right -- Jennifer rented 120 goats to eat the ivy off her property instead of, you know, hiring an exterminator.

It worked! For a while ... The goat herder failed to inform her that ivy grows back over time.

She and husband Ben Affleck now have a hill full of ivy again. Well, we'll definitely give you an A for effort, Jen!

At least it made for a hilarious story. Fans on Twitter were absolutely loving her unbelievable tale -- and so were we.
