Jennifer Garner treated her newest role with a great deal of “respect”.
Jennifer portrays Midwestern housewife Laura Picker in upcoming satire Butter. The film follows Laura as she goes on a campaign to reclaim her husband’s title as the Iowa town’s butter-carving champion.
Jennifer was intent on poking fun at the situation in good spirits, without disrespecting anyone’s standpoints.
“I don’t know if I would want to watch [Butter] with a politician, but I would like to watch it in Iowa and see if they are still friends with me after because we made it with such respect,” Jennifer told Pop Tarts. “And I come from a small town, so I just want to make sure that they enjoy it and have as much fun with it as we intend for them to have.”
Jennifer relished the butter-carving experience she gained while filming this movie. She now has a new appreciation for the dairy product.
“I love movies where you’re immersed in a world you know nothing about and you see that they’re universal. I was all for butter-carving,” she said. “I used butter in the icing for a cake today so no [not sick of it yet!] I go through a lot of butter.”
Butter will be released in US cinemas on March 16 2012.
