Jennifer Garner rose to fame playing a hard-edged CIA agent on the television show "Alias," but in recent years, she's gravitated toward less action-heavy roles.
From "Juno" to her upcoming movie, "The Odd Life of Timothy Green," the actress has showed off a softer side of herself on the big screen. In "Timothy Green," which hits theaters Aug. 15, she plays a wife struggling with infertility issues who has a child magically sprout from her backyard.
In real life, of course, Garner is a mother of three with husband Ben Affleck. Even though she's well-versed in diaper duty and preschool pickups, the actress says she's ready to move away from more maternal parts.
"Do I think there will be a return to the action? I hope so," the 40-year-old said at the premiere of "Timothy Green" in Hollywood on Monday, where the red carpet outside the El Capitan was decorated with green turf and faux trees. "I was working out with my trainer this morning and she's trained me for 12 years and she said, 'I think it's time. I think we need to put some pleather on.'"
