After reportedly asking producers to alter her topless scene in "Wanderlust", Jennifer Aniston weighed in on the swirling rumors that she has filmed some nude scenes in the upcoming raunchy comedy. The former "Friends" star finally confessed that there are "a lot" of skin-baring scenes in her new film.
"Yeah, there was a lot of [nudity]," the 43-year-old actress told ET Canada of her forthcoming R-rated flick. "Bottomless, topless. Yeah, there is. It's happening." She then described her naked scenes as fitting with "the spirit of the movie", which follows a New York couple who encounters an idyllic community during their getaway.
The "Horrible Bosses" actress went on saying, " 'Liberating' is a good word to use." Asked how she dealt with other cast members who took off their clothes on set, she jokingly explained that she just "figured out how to throw on a pair of sunglasses."
In another interview with The Sun, Aniston claimed that she had no problem filming some naked scenes in "Wanderlust". She said, "I wouldn't go topless for a cause, going to such an extreme to make a difference. But we've been among these people in this environment for almost two months. The topless scene was nothing compared to what happened in the two months prior."
Over the weekend, The Wrap stated that Aniston made a last-minute decision to pull her breasts-baring scene from "Wanderlust". She has reportedly demanded the producers to replace her topless scene with a "tamer version" due to her blossoming relationship with Justin Theroux, whom she met while filming the romantic comedy.
Regarding the report, a spokeswoman for Universal Pictures weighed in, "The scene was shot a bunch of different ways, and we have the best possible version." Meanwhile, Aniston's publicist Stephen Huvane denied the rumor by saying that "the scene is how it was always supposed to be."
In "Wanderlust", Aniston and Paul Rudd star as Linda and George, an overextended, stressed-out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, the two decide to move in with George's brother in Atlanta. Along the way, they stumble upon Elysium, an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things.
After being premiered in Hollywood on Thursday evening, February 16, the David Wain-directed film, which is also supported by Malin Akerman, Lauren Ambrose and Ray Liotta, will open wide in the U.S. theaters on February 24.
