We know and love Jennifer Aniston for her sweet romantic comedy roles in light hearted, friendly films. Earlier this year she starred in Just Go With It alongside Adam Sandler. The rest of her resume consists of blithely, romantic fun, whether its appropriate for family night like Marley & Me with Owen Wilson or more suitable for girl's night with Love Happens. Regardless, Aniston's character and depth of acting has been reasonably predictable since her days as Rachel on the TV show Friends. However, her latest role as the a dirty dentist in Horrible Bosses left even the director shocked.
Her role as Dr. Julie Harris was described as foul mouthed and sexually explicit, by MTV news. Her co-stars Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, and Colin Farrell seem more than capable of tackling R-rated erotic humor--but what about our sweet Miss Aniston?
It wasn't a 'might.' There was never the word 'might' [involved in deciding to take the part], Aniston exclaimed. It was pretty much, 'How fast can I say yes? I will play this part. I'd never seen anything like this woman, and I couldn't imagine not doing it, Aniston explained.
Critics and fans alike appear to be pleased with Aniston's attempt to widen her range in this R-rated comedy.I found her irresistible to play. I mean, if you're going, go all the way. This woman is guilty as charged, Aniston said. Unfortunately, her life in adult comedy seems to be ending before it even begins. Her next film-- Wanderlust, with Paul Rudd is a romantic comedy...who would have guessed?
Horrible Bosses is currently in theatres. Here are some photos of the hot premiere event that took place Wednesday night in London!
