Jennifer Aniston says controversial scene of her having sex with someone in coma had to be removed from film
| Last updated
Jennifer Aniston has confirmed one of her sex scenes had to be cut from Horrible Bosses 2 due to its controversial nature.
Anyone who's ever seen the 2011 film Horrible Bosses or its sequel will know that the movies are packed to the brim with controversy due to the fact that a number of the characters involved are, well, horrible.
Aniston herself plays one of these awful people as she takes on the role of boss Julia Harris, but she's explained there was one scene involving her character which crossed a line:
The scene took place between herself and co-star Charlie Day, who plays her employee, Dale. Julia definitely doesn't care about HR coming after her and continually sexually harasses Dale while they're at work, but the deleted scene saw her taking things to a whole new level.
Aniston opened up about the scene during an appearance on Conan O'Brien, where she explained that her character was supposed to share a sex scene with Day's, only it 'was kind of not mutual' because he was literally unconscious.
She struggled to find the words to describe the scene, saying: "Charlie Day’s character is in a coma, and I exploit him whilst he was in a coma.
"So it was a sex scene that was sort of.. they removed it. But I bet it will be in those DVD extras!"
Aniston went on to describe the scene as a 'terrifying thing to have to shoot' because she wasn't able to work off her co-star during the scene.
"You usually have someone there to support [you] but he's just lying there in a coma... and I'm like front ways, this ways, that way... all by myself."
In spite of Aniston's struggles during that particular scene, she told HuffPost she 'couldn't wait' to come back to the character after first playing her in the original Horrible Bosses.
"I couldn't wait. I think I was there - I was probably sitting on the lot in costume the year before just sort of panhandling going, "Come on. Let's do another one." I love it," she said.
Aniston said she was 'excited' to return to Julia's outrageous personality because 'you can go far with her and its all fair game'.
"There's nothing that she will not do. Obviously," Aniston added.
But while Julia had no limits, Aniston has admitted there was 'one line' she couldn't say, though unfortunately for us she claimed she couldn't remember what it was.
