“He rocks; I would do anything for him,” she said of her friend. And now, as his highly-anticipated “Star Trek” reboot continues to film, Garner wants to go where few actresses have gone before.
“I just want to be a Klingon in the movie,” the A-list “Juno” star pleaded, insisting that she’d even take a cameo. “I just want to walk through [the frame] as a Klingon.”
Of course, no one will confirm that the hairy, wrinkly-foreheaded aliens are even in next winter’s “Trek” (unless Garner just coughed up something Abrams told her). Either way, the actress said she’s something of a Trekkie herself, and can’t wait to see what J.J. brings to outer space.
“J.J. is kind of like Juno,” she laughed, referencing Ellen Page’s quick-witted character in her current movie. “It’s just his energy, his personality, and he’s as smart as anybody I’ve ever met. Both funny and nice.”
On a semi-related note, Garner also spoke with us about the thank you credit in “Gone Baby Gone,” in which her husband Ben listed her as “Jennifer Affleck”. “No [I’m not changing my name], that was just kind of him thanking me,” she revealed. “It was because, the way that I helped in that movie was not as a professional person, it was as a wife. That was sweet though, right?”
Cue the “awwws” and sound up the violins – but if Garner truly wants to portray a warrior alien who lives by the motto “Revenge is a dish best served cold,” she’ll need to drop the sweet stuff. So, we’ll be expecting a “Jennifer Garner” credit, okay J.J.?
