Los Angeles: Actress Katherine Heigl admits taking part in so many romantic comedies has derailed her career. The `State of Affairs` star said she regrets for not taking more challenging roles, reportedly.

"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`.
