Jennifer Garner on Hugh Jackman sex scene: 'So horrifying'

We don't know if it was this scene in particular, or if Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman should just avoid sex scenes in general, but both stars seem to have been scarred by their sensual encounter in their upcoming indie "Butter."

Just as Jackman has said that he was beyond embarrassed after recording vocals for a sex scene with Garner, the actress relayed the same sentiment to E! News.

"Of course, it was like the first day we worked together," she said. "It's always like that. It's always like, 'It's nice to meet you, now let's moan and groan.'"

The actors had to record audio of their characters making love because the sex scene takes place off-camera.

"I'm such a huge fan of his," Garner laughed of her co-star, who plays her ex-boyfriend in the quirky comedy (which, by the way, is about competitive butter carving). "It was so horrifying."

Some are comparing Garner's ambitious character Laura to a Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin type, especially in the style department, but Garner says she doesn’t think of her role in a political sense.

"I didn't look at the political figures of today at all,” she told E! News. “As far as the political stuff, that you'll just have to read into yourself."

"Modern Family" star Ty Burrell plays Garner's retired butter-carving husband in the film, which is due to hit theaters in March.

    OK, everyone, you wanted a break from sequel-itis and more originality from Hollywood. Well, here you go! Butter carving.

    Butter ... carving? Carving? It sounds like the movie makers, in the immortal words of Ian Malcolm, "were so preoccupied with whether they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

    Looks like she went to Angielina Jolie's plastic surgeon for collagen lips and, judging by the way her left eye won't fully open, I'm gonna guess botox too. Too bad, I thought she was gorgeous to begin with...

    I'm just grateful she didn't put her hair behind her Dumbo ears. She was pictured that way in virtually every photo for years! NOT a good look for her. As for being embarrassed about making love-making noises-this sounds like some canned statement she and Hugh were supposed to give. Now if the they had to strip and climb on top of each other the first day on the set, THAT would qualify as embarrassing.

    TROUT POUT!! Women should learn to have only a little filler put in the top lip, then put a slight bit more in the bottom lip. That said, everyone's face will change over time and she has money to change whatever she doesn't like. Still a beautiful woman even after having the kids.

      She is "girl next door" good looking?

      You need to see an optometrist immediately. She looks very different since she clearly had some professional work done. She looks like the typical collagen and botox injected Hollywood celebrity now. How you can confuse that with the "girl next door" look baffles me.

    Wow, more liberals making fun of republicans. I will be sure to put this on the AVOID list. It seems to doom these lefty movies. How is Morgan Freeman's dolphin flick going after he mouthed off??? Does Jennifer realize she is married to the worst actor in Hollywood – have you seen Pearl Harbor or Gigli??? Jennifer looks like she got attacked by a Botox needle.

      When this scene plays just hit the mute button and he wont even know about it.
      Besides from what I understand it wasn't even Jennifer Garner in this scene, it was actually Kelsey Grammer. Patrick Stewert just tricked Hugh Jackman into thinking it was Garner. Patrick Stewert can get pretty mean with his practical jokes if he wants to.

      I thought she was great in that sitcom where she was a spy. It was perfect for her at the time. I don't think her movies make any impact. They seem sort of ..flat. She is attractive but she is not Meryl Streep. Right now, she is pregnant again and it changes the face...not only the body.

    Tracie is nothing but a useless troll with nothing better to do. Ignore him, he writes the same post on every article – that's all his brain can handle. Just a good for nothing waste of space. It's clear why his life is so pathetic and this is what he has to resort to. LOSER!!
