The State of Affairs star said she regrets for not taking more challenging roles, reported Ace Showbiz.
"I had an amazing time. I love romantic comedies. I was so stoked to be doing them. But maybe I hit it a little too hard. I couldn't say no. There's nothing wrong with them, but maybe I overloaded my audience. I should have done a superhero movie or a psychological thriller," the mother of two said.
"I stopped challenging myself. It became a bit by rote and, as a creative person that can wear you down.
"That was part of why I took that time off, to ask myself, 'What do I want? What am I looking for?' and shut down all the noise," she added.
Heigl, 35, has now returned to television. She is playing a main character on NBC's new drama series State of Affairs.
