Jennifer Aniston has gone from America’s Sweetheart to America’s Sexpot. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Coming off her risqué turn as a stripper in last summer’s comedy hit We’re The Millers, the former Friends favorite will reprise her role as sex-crazed dentist Julia Harris in the upcoming off-color laffer, Horrible Bosses 2.
A script for the film has leaked and been summarized on line, and if the finished flick reflects the written version, the movie will feature the most ribald role yet for Jennifier Aniston, and will even see the 45-year-old star engage in a lesbian sex scene.
If the box office results from We’re The Millers, in which the former wife of Brad Pitt performed a seductive strip tease, are any indication, the moviegoing public is definitely hungry for Jennifer Aniston to take more overtly sexual parts in her films.
Made for a budget of just $37 million — relatively low for a Hollywood studio production — the summer comedy about an oddball family on a road trip grossed more than $150 million at the domestic box office and just short of $270 million worldwide.
The original entry in the Horrible Bosses series, which was released in 2011, did similarly impressive numbers. With a $35 million budget, the film grossed $209 million in its worldwide release. In that film, Jennifer Aniston first played the dentist who demands sexual favors from her male patients.
The two vaguely erotic roles for Aniston would seem to indicate that her even-more-sexualized role in the Horrible Bosses sequel should add significantly to the reported $150 million Jennifer Aniston net worth.
According to an account of the leaked script, in Horrible Bosses 2, Jennifer Aniston’s nymphomaniac character is intent on bedding the character Dale, played by It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia veteran Charlie Day. But in the end, according to the reports, Aniston ends up having sex with both Dale and his wife — after seducing Dale by telling him, “your c*** is like a trophy.”
In Horrible Bosses 2, due to hit screens November 28, Sudekis and Day again co-star along with Jennifer Aniston, with Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine also appearing in the likely R-rated comedy.
