Jennifer Aniston helped BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills ruin his correspondent’s day by agreeing to make a press junket interview for “Horrible Bosses 2” as “awkward as possible.”
The actress went from cheery to visibly uncomfortable when BBC Radio 1’s Chris Stark — whose hilariously awkward “We’re the Millers” interview with Aniston went viral in the past — asked her how she would make “a first move” on a guy.
Mills tipped the actress off to the question beforehand, but anyone in Stark’s situation never would have guessed.
“First of all, I don’t think that’s an extremely appropriate question. Secondly, I’m committed to somebody. I don’t hit on people,” Aniston said. “It’s not a silly question, it just seems a little inappropriate.”
“It’s a silly question,” Stark stumbled. “Don’t answer them, please.”
Stark manages to conceal his own embarrassment pretty well, until his boss comes in and reveals the prank, prompting Stark to come clean that “this is my actual nightmare right now.”
To his credit, the genuine horror he displays at the mere prospect of offending Aniston appears to make her feel worse about it than he does.
Well played, sir.
