Jennifer Aniston admires ‘sassy’ co-star

Jennifer Aniston says Emma Roberts is a “sassy little thing”.

The 44-year-old stars as Emma’s mother in new comedy film We’re the Millers which follows a pot dealer who creates a fake family in order to move a big drugs shipment.

Jennifer bonded so well with her 22-year-old co-star that she felt like her real-life parent on the set.

“I found myself mothering her a lot – I hope that wasn’t annoying! But she was so adorable,” Jennifer gushed to UK magazine Look. “She’s a sassy little thing.”

Jennifer is engaged to actor Justin Theroux and has recently been forced to deny pregnancy rumors of her own. She says she plays a convincing mother in the movie because she is naturally maternal, not because she’s pregnant.

“Ah, this is a mother question! I feel like a mother to a lot of my girlfriends. My girlfriends and I are all really maternal – we are each other’s mothers, sisters, everything. I think because a lot of us didn’t have the most fantastic parental experiences in our own lives, we learned our own mothering techniques from each other,” she explained. “It’s just an instinct I’ve had for many years, it comes naturally – as it does to most women probably.”

As well as being impressed with Emma, Jennifer enjoyed working with co-star Kathryn Hahn. In one scene Kathryn touches Jennifer’s breasts, which she says she quite liked.

“It was completely 100% comfortable. I wish it went on for longer!” she laughed.
