(NEW YORK) — Jennifer Aniston is married to Justin Theroux and Jason Sudeikis is expecting his second child with actress Olivia Wilde, but the two agreed that starring in their fifth collaboration together, Mother’s Day, makes them like “work wives.”
“Indeed,” said Sudeikis, who stars in the new dramedy as a widower with two kids whose budding romance with Aniston’s divorced mom-of-two character begins awkwardly.
Sudeikis, 40, and Aniston, 47, told ABC News’ Matt Gutman it was the allure of working with famed director Garry Marshall that drew them to the movie, which also stars Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson.
“That’s the only thing,” Aniston said, joking that she didn’t even need to see a script.
Aniston began filming Mother’s Day in Atlanta, Georgia, shortly after her August 2015 wedding to Theroux. The close timing led Sudeikis to joke that the newlyweds had honeymooned in the Southern city.
“The aquarium,” Sudeikis joked of an Atlanta honeymoon destination, prompting a laugh from Aniston.
Wherever Aniston may be, don’t expect the actress to broadcast it on social media. The former Friends star called the new form of communication “so much pressure.”
“It’s such a part of the world now, that sort of transparency, so I just kind of prefer not to,” she said.
Mother’s Day opens in theaters nationwide today.
