Jen and Paul say "no" to open relationships

SheKnows chats with Wanderlust co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd about the film, fun on set, and Jen’s new boyfriend, Justin Theroux.

Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd seem pretty laid back in their own lives, but the alternative lifestyle in their new movie Wanderlust is too much even for these two.

Specifically, the idea of open relationships causes a lot of the trouble for the on-screen couple when they attempt to integrate themselves into the film's communal living arrangement, Elysium.

"I think it's a personal choice," Jennifer told us on her feelings about free love. "For me, I don't think it would be great. If [I were] married, no."

Still, it did make for great movie moments, especially when Rudd tries to psych himself up to hook up with the beautiful Malin Akerman. In typical Rudd movie fashion, the actor begins spewing out unintelligible but hilarious phrases.

"I was grossing myself out," Paul laughed. "You're in the movie, but I'm looking at myself doing this stuff and saying these things, and after a while, you're like, 'This is just gross.'"

Another major source of humor in the film is Jennifer's off-screen love, Justin Theroux. Sporting a beard, ponytail and a holier-than-thou attitude, Theroux delivers an expert portrayal of Elysium's delusional leader.

"[He is] the nicest person," Jen told us about her boyfriend. "Gentle, kind, funny and smart, and really extremely talented."

The three have several hilarious scenes together, including our favorite, in which they "gesticulate" to loosen up. Justin, Jen and Paul wave their arms around wildly while they shout out anything that comes to mind.

"It's one of those things in theory that seems like it could actually work," Paul told us. Jen, however, says she'll stick to journaling and yoga, something in which she is trying to get Paul to partake.

Sounds like a good plan to us!
