“All actors who want to do this, it’s really, really fun, but you really, really have to want to do it, (because) there’s all sorts of stuff that comes along with it,” Aniston told the crowd outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater. “But man, I have to tell you, I never in my wildest dreams though that I’d be sticking my body in cement.”
Aniston, 42, rose to fame as the sweet and slightly naive Rachel on “Friends,” but “Horrible Bosses” finds the actress going in a very different direction, playing a dentist and sexual predator. In fact, she so mercilessly pursues one of her hygienists, played by Charlie Day, that he and his two friends, played by Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis, make a pact to kill each others’ bosses.
Bateman was on hand to sing her praises. “I don’t feel nearly as lucky as the sidewalk, because the sidewalk — for years long after we’re all gone — gets to now include, poured into its rigid cement, a woman whose spirit is every bit as solid, whose integrity is every bit as unbreakable and whose body is every bit as hard,” Bateman said.
(Opening across the Philippines in September, “Horrible Bosses” is a New Line Cinema film, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.)
