Jennifer Aniston loves her character in 'Horrible Bosses 2' because she gets to let loose and feel uninhibited
Jennifer Aniston loved acting out her "wild fantasies" in 'Horrible Bosses 2'.
The 45-year-old actress reprises her role as sexually predatory dentist Julia in the comedy sequel and while she found some of her alter ego's antics "shocking", she had fun letting go of her inhibitions.
She told LOOK magazine: "It was kind of shocking for me. But I loved the character and the writing was so good that it gives you the chance to really let loose and not feel inhibited in any way.
"I think we all have strange thoughts or moments where you imagine what it would be like to get really wild.
"It's very rare that you ever get to act out those kinds of fantasies and that's why acting can be so stimulating really, because it's the very nature of the process to totally throw yourself into the mind of the character."
And Jennifer - who is engaged to Justin Theroux - particularly enjoyed working on the sequel because it meant spending time with her close friend Jason Bateman.
She said: "Jason and I have been friends for a long time and we always enjoy spending time together.
"I love working with him because we can't stop each other from laughing sometimes. It's like having this ongoing rapport because we know each other so well and we don't really have any secrets from each other.
"These friendships are pretty rare in life and I really value having Jason as someone I've known over the years."
