“Everyone is playing grab a**” – When Jason Bateman Got Candid About Working with Jennifer Aniston In ‘Office Christmas Party’

Long-time friends and co-stars Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston have always had a common element. Their old wrinkles have come not by age but by a bucket full of mirth and laughter. Amidst all joy and celebration, as we inch closer to Christmas, it is time to go back to a Christmas movie by both the stars to relive their youth. Here is an incident from the stars who were once co-actors on the amazing set of Office Christmas Party. 

The duo can hardly control from bursting into laughter when they are together. On top of it, filming a movie was, of course, one great challenge. In the movie, Aniston plays a “no-nonsense” boss with a demanding straight face. Bateman, however, stayed true to his cautious ironist character and plays a technology officer dealing with a recent divorce.

The movie is about the boss, (Aniston) throwing a legit party to land a client and save the day. However, things go out of hand and it ends with the audience almost rolling on the floor laughing. Needless to say, behind-the-scenes bloopers are indeed even funnier than the actual movie. Especially when Bateman once himself admitted to CNN about the comic role stating, “I like that they are easier to do than dramas because everyone is playing grab a** before and after action.” 

On the contrary, he remarked that dramas have a sense of seriousness as “everyone’s gotta be respectful on set”. And when this comes from the director of one of this year’s most intensely spine-chilling and crime-drenched thriller and suspense series, Ozark, we know we should not question that. On the other hand, Aniston, who is famous for her evergreen classic F.R.I.E.N.D.S character Rachel, could not stop joking about the role of the boss.

Bateman further added stating, how they don’t keep straight faces. “We break up all the time,” he gushed. They also talked about some of their special Jason-Jennifer tricks to suppress laughter. Some of it included a sharp nail pinch or some pain-inducing activity, only to end up laughing even louder. Jennifer Aniston was last seen on the big screen in 2019. She has not been on the news as much ever since. However, Bateman has a slew of megahit blockbusters coming in line.
