NEW YORK (AP) -- Jennifer Garner says she plays so many "pretty, girl-next-doorish" types in her movies -- even she is getting sick of herself. That's why she says it was cool to be able to take on a less likable woman in the person of Laura Pickler in "Butter." She says her character gave her a chance to stretch her acting muscles a bit. The flip side of the no more Mrs. Nice Girl role is that her character, is -- as Garner puts it: "a heinous person" who is "not to be emulated in any way."
