At Work with Jennifer Aniston
Behind the scenes Jen’s new movie – umbrella handler and all
Jennifer Aniston is hard at work on the set of The Baster in Manhattan with funnyman, Jason Bateman. The two have been filming the motherhood comedy in the city for four weeks while Jen stays at the super luxurious Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca.
This week, scenes are being filmed in Midtown and set sources gave me the inside details on some of Jen’s special requests. “Jen likes to have certain hair and makeup for all of her movies, especially the romantic comedies and she looks stunning in The Baster. She is unbelievably tan and her hair always looks perfect. She has an umbrella handler with her at all times due to the heat wave in New York. Her spray tan would literally slide off her face in the heat if she wasn’t protected. Everyone on set is also instructed not to tell any bystanders or paparazzi what we are filming or who is in the movie. We tell everyone it’s just a little commercial! Most people believe it and walk away without recognizing Jen.”
Jason Bateman, a longtime Aniston friend, is enjoying his time onset and making everyone laugh – without an umbrella handler. “Jason is a down-to-earth guy and he waves off the umbrella handler. It was so hot on Monday that he began sweating through his shirt, but he had the whole crew laughing anyway. Jen and Jason get along great and he makes her laugh all the time. For all the drama that surrounds Jen’s life, she is actually drama free.”
