Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman were back to work on The Baster yesterday, and Jason got another visit from his daughter Francesca between takes. While Jen's got her hands full with her upcoming project, she's pulling double duty promoting Management at the same time. In a recent interview she talked about breakups, projects, and what she'd be doing if she weren't an actor. Here are highlights:
- On an awkward breakup: "I broke up with a guy and he tried to get back together with me by bringing his mother to a restaurant I worked at and getting down on one knee in the middle of the restaurant. The whole restaurant started applauding and I was like, 'Get up!' It was horrible."
- On what she'd do if she quit acting: "I would say, probably something in the health industry. It's too late to go to medical school. I'd travel. I'd go back to the years that I never did what I'd wish I'd done, which was travel Europe and backpack. That sounds slightly romantic. What I would do? I don't know. Maybe become a chef. There's so much more to do. It's almost overwhelming. I've gotten to a great place in my career."
- On how she chooses her films: "You've got to really love the project. I just left home after I built up my house for 2½ years. I moved in for a month and now I'm here. I don't want to do the same thing over and over. It's not about, 'Oh, it's going to be a big hit.' I don't want to do that."
Whether or not Jen chooses blockbusters on purpose, she's proven that she knows a thing or two about making hit movies.
