Jennifer Aniston looked hot in Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, and Michael Kors this morning on her way to do press for Horrible Bosses at NYC's Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston were together to visit Inside the Actors Studio last night, but today she had leading men Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, and Jason Bateman along with director Seth Gordon and screenwriter Michael Markowitz to chat about the dark comedy out on July 8. Jen joked about the less-than-ideal management and jobs from her past and confessed that she didn't really mind tackling the dirty-talking role of Julia Harris, a dentist who doesn't seem to respect the boundaries of workplace sexual harassment. Some of her funniest scenes are with Charlie, who didn't have to do much acting when it came to being shocked by Jen's character. They said:
Do you have any particularly awful bosses that stick out in your mind?
Jason Bateman: I've never had a bad one.
Jennifer Aniston: I had one that was inconsistent and a little complicated but not horrible.
Jennifer, did you have any hesitations about taking on such a filthy-talking role? And is there a shift toward gorgeous women saying dirty things?
JA: I know I had no hesitation, to answer that question. At all.
Michael Markowitz, writer: When I wrote the script — I always have actors in mind when I was writing. And Jason Bateman and [Jen] were the actors I had in mind. I never knew if it was like, rude, to tell you that I thought of you for that part.
JA: Are you kidding? It's a compliment!
MM: I broke my leg and was watching DVDs, and I watched Friends start to finish and I thought, Oh! She'd be great at this. Rachel was so much bawdier.
Jason Sudeikis: Oh! That's how I know you. You were on Friends!
Did director Seth Gordon encourage you to improvise or did you just go for it, Jen?
JA: It was on the page. So I was just doing my job. There was nothing that didn't happen that he wasn't getting so tickled and excited about. The raunchier the better. It was pretty easy. It really was.
Jen, was it fun to take on a role where a girl gets to play a stereotypically guy character? And how did you prep for the role?
JA: Well that's what I think was so fun about it — being a female who's usually a male character . . . and that's sort of what made it that much more fun. I did go to the dentist right beforehand though to see how they hold the tools. The rest was easy.
