It is Jennifer Aniston like we have never seen her before. She plays a cynical stripper who is recruited by a drug dealer in new comedy ‘Meet the Millers’.
The actress justified the role by saying: “It’s always funny to be a little naughty sometimes. Isn’t everybody a little naughty sometimes? And I think it’s fun. It’s nice to kind of get out of your mould and, you know, what’s expected, so it’s fun.”
The movie also stars Jason Sudeikis, who turns to Aniston’s character to build a fake family to help him smuggle marijuana from Mexico to the US. He is a longtime marijuana dealer who finds himself in debt to a major drug dealer played by Ed Helms.
On being asked what it is like to play a drug lord, actor Helms said: “Um, it was a real stretch as an actor and (laughs) I don’t know I sort of feel like – yes he’s a drug kingpin but at the same time he’s an incredibly silly or ridiculous drug kingpin and that was just a ton of fun. I got to stretch out as an actor a bit and be weird.”
‘We’re the Millers’ starts its worldwide release on August 9.
