It was usually fun.

It was usually this great village as great as these extraordinary people. For me, we unequivocally satisfied how most we was walled up in the way, not consciously so, yet usually this protecting panzer division which we kind of have. It’s not for my friends or people in my family, yet usually being outward in the world, regularly upon guard. So, there was usually this whine of service after week one, meaningful “This is usually identical to John Travolta in ‘The Boy in the Bubble.’” It’s identical to roving upon the equine out of the bubble. It was unequivocally special, as great as to get behind in hold with which partial of myself as great as which arrange of anonymity, we unequivocally done the unwavering bid to know, “Don’t wall up identical to that.” we consider which we skip out upon the lot of things when you’re so stable as great as removed in the way. It’s not which bad.
Q: Can we speak about what your knowledge was identical to sharpened in which area of the country, in Georgia?
Aniston: We desired it. We positively desired it. We enjoyed Atlanta. We desired Clarksville. It lent itself beautifully to the story which we were revelation since we were all in the place which nothing of us lived. So, we were arrange of brought together.
Rudd: It was additionally the great time of year. The seasons were changing. We were there in the tumble as great as there were the lakes as great as trees.

Rudd: It was unequivocally beautiful.
Aniston: We went pretence or treating.
Rudd: That’s right. we didn’t.
Aniston: we did.
Rudd: we wasn’t there. That was the a singular time which we left.

Q: How prolonged do we consider which we would unequivocally final in the place identical to that, or was there ever the time in your hold up when we might’ve been some-more open to vital in the identical place?
Aniston: we overtly don’t consider we would. we consider starting for the small bit would be arrange of…
Rudd: It depends upon what chronicle it is. The chronicle of this one, the a singular in the movie, since we recollect being twenty as great as assembly people or we encounter people right divided who say, “I used to work as great as lived upon the kibbutz,” as great as afterwards we recollect saying the movie “Together,” the Lukas Moodysson the singular as great as thinking, “Wow, what the cold community approach of living.” There’s something great about the thought of operative the land, as great as vital communally is healthy. That’s good. we consider which substantially somewhere we regularly did, yet the chronicle in the movie we consider would get aged flattering fast.
Q: Were there any takes which we usually couldn’t hold how prolonged they were vouchsafing we go?
Rudd: we mean, come on. That’s usually about any singular the singular in the movie, I’d say.
Aniston: David would wait, yet afterwards he would do it usually for his own laugh. You’d listen to him laughing. We would usually be starting upon as great as upon as great as upon as great as afterwards in the future he’d scream cut, shouting as great as we knew we were usually giving David the kick.
Rudd: we identical to it. I’m not the air blower of usually we do the scene, cut, setup again as great as do the stage again, cut, do it again. It’s great when we can keep starting as great as infrequently find the rhythm, the groove, something can happen, quite if you’re improvising. So, it’s great when we have the executive which wants to work identical to that. For me, we identical to it.
Aniston: That’s where we find the magic, the fun things comes, when someone is not so despotic upon adhering to the script. So, you’re authorised the impetuosity as great as great moments can happen.
Q: Paul, did we ever warn yourself in the lavatory scene?
Rudd: That was usually gross. That was the initial day of shooting. That was the second stage which we shot as great as it did go upon along.
Aniston: You set the tone. You had which as great as the toilet, sitting upon the toilet with Jordan [Peele] as great as Kerri [Kenney]. It usually went ascending from there.
Rudd: That was the initial scene. The counterpart was the second stage as great as we recollect vividly saying the most faces of the organisation with the countenance of, “What the fuck am we operative on,” identical to legitimately concerned. “This is not what we read.

The initial time we worked with David was upon “Wet Hot American Summer.” A lot of people have asked us, like, “God, we guys must’ve makeshift the ton,” as great as essentially we unequivocally didn’t. Most of which was written. we consider David’s story as great as the approach he’s regularly worked has essentially been to write the flattering parsimonious script. Judd writes the book as great as it’s parsimonious as great as it focuses upon jokes, yet he loves to, identical to we said, usually keep cameras starting as great as see what happens, scream out citation whilst we’re filming, scream out the line here as great as there. He kind of shapes it as great as directs it as it’s starting upon as great as conducts it identical to an orchestra. we have beheld with David, as great as I’ve beheld this with alternative directors which I’ve worked with some-more than once, which which approach of operative seems to apropos the small some-more mainstream, the small bit some-more of the norm. It’s kind of the approach which we have right divided proposed to work upon these things. So, which we would contend is essentially some-more of the Judd change than anything else.
Q: Do we feel vigour right divided which people design we to move humerous entertainment to the movie?
Rudd: Well, that’s kind of…
Aniston: If it’s the comedy, yeah.
Rudd: There’s vigour any singular time, the vigour of not sucking. Now which you’ve forked it out, we consider I’m screwed.
Q: David talked about how most additional things he shot for the Bizarro cut. As actors, does which have saying the accomplished product some-more of the surprise?
Aniston: Oh, God, yeah. we mean, well, we haven’t seen the bizarro cut, yet starting to the premiere final night we did not know what [to expect]. There have been so most incarnations of it. That’s arrange of what was so fun, arrange of saying it as great as experiencing startle as great as awe.
Rudd: we adore David articulate about the bizarro cut. That’s when we contend which David has the unequivocally specific sensibility, identical to that’s David to the tee. David would substantially identical to to have the bizarro cut the unchanging movie where we’re identical to panicking as great as afterwards he’ll say, “What about your parents? Why don’t we ask your relatives to assistance out?” And we say, “Don’t be concerned about it. It’s not critical for the movie or anything,” as great as kind of addressing the subject which we competence wish to ask, “But it’ll mess-up up the rest of the script. So, don’t be concerned about that.” We would essentially movie which conversation. You would never put which in the movie, yet he’ll do it for the bizarro cut. Leaps in proof as great as things identical to which he’ll indicate out which usually unequivocally creates me laugh.
Q: What was the method we shot “Our Idiot Brother” as great as this movie in?
Rudd: This the singular came after. we went from “Idiot Brother” right in to this one.
Q: What was it identical to personification these unequivocally juxtaposed characters?
Rudd: we looked during Justin [Theroux] as great as his brave as great as hair as great as got nostalgic. Really. we was like, “I skip it. God dang it. we skip it.” It was fun. we desired operative upon both of those movies. They were unequivocally great experiences, as great as additionally operative with friends upon both of them. I’d worked with Jesse [Peretz] as great as Kathryn Hahn was in that, too. So, it was cool.
Q: One of the themes in the movie is the thought of giveaway love. Do possibly of we consider which functions in the relationship?
Rudd: We get which subject the lot.
Aniston: we usually consider which for the small people it’s possible, yet to any his own. we consider in the future it’s starting to begin to not feel good.
Rudd: Emotions can get in the approach as great as it gets muddy.
Q: You have the stage where we take your shirt off. How gentle have been we with which kind of thing?
Aniston: There’s the small bit of nerves, yet adrenaline kind of takes we by it, as great as afterwards we have the girls come in as great as cover we up immediately, yet we got unequivocally gentle with saying bare people, flattering most immediately. It was unequivocally bizarre, as great as to know which these were tangible nudists, since there’s the nudist cluster in Clarksville as great as how gentle they have been being nude. Then there would be the ones we could discuss it were not the accurate nudists since they were groomed, as great as so we could mark the feign miles away. Maybe not miles away.
Rudd: Unless they were rocking the merkin, let’s be honest. They could’ve left to the make-up trailer.
Aniston: Shockingly, it was uncanny how during palliate we all became with carrying the garland of exposed people everywhere.
Rudd: But we do have to concentration upon gripping eye hit so which we don’t demeanour as well pervy as great as weird. It’s the uncanny thing when not everyone is naked.
Aniston: Right, yet that’s where sunglasses come in.
Rudd: That’s true. we didn’t consider about that.
Q: Congratulations upon carrying your star upon the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Jennifer. How do we feel about the timing of which right divided as great as have been we seeking brazen to the event?

You were vehement about usually upon foot as great as saying the names, as great as to suppose which you’re starting to be there is unequivocally special. It’s fun.
Q: Jennifer, your impression bounces around in conditions of her career as great as goals. What were the small of the aspirations we both had in Hollywood if behaving didn’t work out?
Aniston: Well, there was the duration where we longed for to be the therapist if the behaving thing didn’t work, as great as which was flattering most it. we don’t know why. we usually favourite articulate to people. we was regularly the lady which people would come to as great as speak to about their problems. we still am. But we additionally unequivocally knew which behaving was something which we was starting to…I had the great feeling about it. we consider we was innocently undeveloped where we usually wasn’t so, like, “God. we goal this happens.” we was waitressing as great as waitressing as great as waitressing as great as we do this as great as which as great as the alternative thing. we would try-out as great as we couldn’t get hired to save my life, yet we would do Off Broadway drama as great as which was great as great as we was vehement as great as thrilled, feeling like, “Well, it’s Off Off Broadway, yet there’s still the Broadway in there.” So, yeah.
Rudd: At slightest we had that. we was in shows which awf, awf, awful. That couldn’t have been the some-more cornball joke. That sucked.
Aniston: No. It was good.
Q: Was the Spin Doctor’s strain regularly starting to be the strain in the film?
Rudd: It was usually so fun to lay around as great as consider about what the strain could be.
Aniston: You outlayed some-more time upon which –
Rudd: I’ll put some-more time in to which than anything else. we do consider it reveals the lot about the character, yet it’s usually super fun when we go, “Oh, yeah, which would be the great the singular as great as it’d be unequivocally droll to play.” The the singular which we roughly did, David as great as we outlayed hours shouting about it, was the strain “Tough Enough” by the Fabulous Thunderbirds. One since it’s the unequivocally specific song, yet who would sense which strain upon an acoustic guitar as great as afterwards try to fool around that, sitting around going, “Ain’t which difficult enough.” So, it was roughly that, yet afterwards The Spin Doctors seemed like, “No. we don’t know how we kick that.”
In the past 15 years, Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd have appeared together in three movies and one very well-known TV show — Friends — and this month, the longtime buddies will play a married couple in the comedy Wanderlust. We caught up with the costars today at the Beverly Hills junket for their new movie, where we talked about why they couldn’t handle living on a commune like their characters, and to hear the story of how they first met. Jennifer also talked about their costar and her real-life boyfriend, Justin Theroux. She admitted that his all-black, biker style might strike some as a little bit “serial killer” at first, but she said she quickly learned he was the “nicest person in the world.” Check out our interview and catch Wanderlust in theaters on February 24!
The first promotional interviews of Paul about “Wanderlust” started coming out. First, here is the official one:
I totally forgot to post earlier the behind the scenes video of the photoshoot Paul and Jennifer did for GQ March issue. You can watch Paul talking about Jen and check some clips while doing the photoshoot.
Paul attended “Wanderlust” premiere and after party yesterday at Mann Village Theatre in Westwood, California. I added more than 200 photos of him at the event and will upload even more really soon so stay tunned!
Paul and Jennifer are covering GQ March issue. Check bellow some fantastic outtakes of the photoshoot and scans of the issue:
It had not occurred to me before actually meeting Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd just how long I’d known them. Both have been in the public eye seemingly forever—and in more or less the exact same manifestation (which is to say they both look astonishingly the same as they did two decades ago). So seeing them in physical space is eerily like spotting an acquaintance at an airport. Except, of course, that in a real-life airport, Aniston’s face would be plastered across an array of tabloid covers trumpeting the rumor du jour—most recently that she was pregnant with twins by and/or had eloped with Justin Theroux, Aniston and Rudd’s co-star in the new comedy Wanderlust. (For religious followers of the epic Jen Cycle, this latest coupling with Theroux, seemingly smart, multitalented, and very funny, has been hailed as a high point.)
Rudd and Aniston have known each other even longer than we’ve known them. They met as hopeful young actors living in L.A. and eventually co-starred in the 1998 study in awkwardness The Object of My Affection. Since then, Aniston has been paired on-screen with nearly every funny-man in town. “After a while, you just run out,” Rudd says. So it’s his turn again. We’re at lunch at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel; Rudd is in a long-sleeve T-shirt and jeans, Aniston swaddled against the air-conditioning in a nimbus of brown pashmina. Their long, warm history is evident: They embrace, and immediately Aniston shows off cell-phone photos of her new puppy, a pit bull–boxer rescue named Sophie. It’s all very lovely. So naturally the conversation turns immediately to death.
GQ: Being such longtime friends, is it weird to kiss on-screen?
Jennifer Aniston: Nah. I’ve kissed him for years.
Paul Rudd: We’ve made out for decades.
Jennifer Aniston: It helps that it’s nice. What if you were like, “Well…it was really awkward for me, Jen…”
Paul Rudd: “If we’re putting our cards on the table…”
Jennifer Aniston: “…I asked for a body double.”
GQ: Your new movie, Wanderlust, is about a marriage at a turning point. Paul, you’ve been married for a long time. And Jen, I gather you’ve been married, too?
Jennifer Aniston: That is correct. And I’m now divorced. In case you hadn’t heard.
Paul Rudd: [does spit take] Whaaat?!
GQ: So did some of the issues resonate for you?
Paul Rudd: Sure. I think most marriages, mine included, you’re constantly tending the garden, constantly working at it.
Jennifer Aniston: It’s a growing, literally living thing. There’s going to be growing pains, there’s going to be awkward moments—your lanky phase, your pimpled phase. I think that’s the beauty of a relationship. But if the road starts to…
Paul Rudd: …diverge…
Jennifer Aniston: …and one person is growing this way and the other is growing that way… Sometimes that can happen and you can stay together, and sometimes you can’t.
GQ: Some blog I was reading said you’re the “walking definition of ‘husband material,’ ” Paul. Do you buy that?
Paul Rudd: I think if my wife was at this table right now, she’d do a spit take.
GQ: You both recently passed 40. Did it occasion any major crises?
Jennifer Aniston: Forty’s great!
GQ: Is it?
Jennifer Aniston: Oh, my God, my thirties blew! Forties are great.
GQ: As you’ve gotten older, have you watched couples go through radical changes?
Jennifer Aniston: I’ve seen people go through divorces and stuff, crossroads that don’t end well. Often.
Paul Rudd: I mean, there are couples who have seen everything, and there are those couples who are, you know, swingers. People have all different kinds of marriages. Whatever works for you….
Jennifer Aniston: Right.
Paul Rudd: Everyone’s on their own trip, man. That’s a pretty hippie-sounding line right there. And then there’s also Parisians. Which is a separate category.
GQ: You don’t understand the curiosity? You’ve been living with it a long time.
Jennifer Aniston: I have. I’m still trying really hard to be friends with it. It’s just a weird time, I think. The tabloids, instead of being about alien babies and stuff, it’s my triplets, quadruplets, marriages, feuds…
Paul Rudd: Are your quadruplets feuding with each other?
Jennifer Aniston: They’re feuding again.
Paul Rudd: Oh, my God. I’m sorry to hear that.
Jennifer Aniston: I know. But it was amazing that Sarah Jessica Parker actually birthed one for me.
Paul Rudd: She’s good like that. SJP.
Jennifer Aniston: So good. So sweet.
GQ: You know I’m duty-bound to ask you certain questions…
Jennifer Aniston: Me, or both of us?
GQ: More you.
Jennifer Aniston: I’m not having triplets. Not having twins. Nor am I having one baby. [lifts up sweater and gestures to belly; it appears flat] I did not elope.
GQ: You are with Justin Theroux, though? That’s the we of the dog story?
Jennifer Aniston: Yes. We got a dog.
Paul Rudd: I thought you were talking about wee, like dog pee.
GQ: How did the twins rumor get started?
Jennifer Aniston: Well, I recently quit smoking, and you do put on some extra pounds. It makes a difference, especially if you’re not 20. I think people maybe want me to have a kid now.
GQ: I think they definitely do.
Jennifer Aniston: I still kind of go with, if it happens, it happens. I’m calm and peaceful with whatever the plan is. It’s not something where I’m going, “I gotta have a kid!”
GQ: Does it bug you that marriage and pregnancy are considered such an important part of your narrative?
Jennifer Aniston: Part of the picture-perfect life? I think that’s sort of cliché, isn’t it? Like, if you want to be happy, you should have the house, the husband, the kids… Kids are messy!
Paul Rudd: Having two, I can verify this.
GQ: So what happens when one day there are twins? The tabloids won’t believe you.
Paul Rudd: Will you quit being the girl who cried “twins”?
Jennifer Aniston: The one time I do say, “Yes! I’m pregnant!” they’ll be like, “Pfft. Right.” Anyway, I’m drawing the line on the children conversation. You heard it here. I’m not knocked up now.
Paul Rudd: I literally thought for the last twenty minutes that we’d been talking about dog urine. I’m totally turned around.
