Jennifer Aniston Braves Rainy London for 'We're The Millers' Premiere [Pictures]

Jennifer Aniston probably couldn't wait to get to Heathrow airport and catch a flight straight back to Los Angeles, but the stoic actress smiled intently for the cameras and braved the blustery British weather for the premiere of her new comedy We're the Millers in London on Wednesday night (August 14, 2014).

Poor old Aniston - she probably assumed we have summers in Britain, or maybe she heard the rumors about a little sunshine? Either way, she wore a flowery dress fit for the Californian heat.

Jennifer attended the event with her co-star Jason Sudeikis, who looked predictably dapper in a navy suit with red tie. In the movie - which received mixed reviews stateside - he plays David Clark, a small-time pot dealer who is tasked with bringing a huge shipment of drugs into America from Mexico.

Watch the We're The Millers trailer:

A single man, David enlists the help of a local stripper (Aniston) and two kids to help form a fake family in a bid to thwart border police. 

When asked how she felt being in rainy London, Aniston told The Mirror, "So good, so happy to be here. [The fans are] the most incredible group of people."

On her decision to join We're The Millers - which has been in and out of development for years - the actress explained, "It was one of those stories where the original idea about these down and out people, the drug dealer, the people stuck and then David just gets his ass kicked and he has to smuggle the drugs and get across the border... It's just really ballsy and silly."

According to our friends at Just Jared, Aniston's dress was designed by Dior, with jewels by Fred Leighton, a bag by Burberry and shoes courtesy of Giuseppe Zanotti.

As mentioned, the movie has garnered mixed reviews in the U.S, though rallied to score of 42% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not great by any means, though for a comedy - not a disaster.

"We're the Millers' clicks on just enough cylinders to warrant a recommendation," said Richard Roeper. 

"A movie written by a committee, too long, but the cast carries it a long way, these mild virtues don't quite add up to a recommendation, but if you said you wanted to see it I wouldn't block the door," said Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Of course, like any Hollywood movie's London premiere, the D-list celebrities were out in force (though some famous ones too). Check out the pictures below. Or view our full gallery here.

'The Leftovers' Keeps Justin Theroux In NY & Jennifer Aniston Resides In L.A. - So How Does Their "Bi-Coastal" Relationship Work? 4279031 News

Justin Theroux doesn't mind living 2798 miles apart from fiancé Jennifer Aniston. The 42-year-old actor has recently opened up about his less than conventional living arrangements with the former Friends star.

Justin Theroux and Jennifer AnsitonJustin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston have been dating since 2011.

Read More: Justin Theroux's Relationship "Doesn't Feel Difficult".

Theroux has lived in New York since 1995 whilst Aniston is a long term resident of Los Angeles. The couple bought a $22 million mansion in Bel-Air in 2012 and Theroux splits his time between New York and Los Angeles. The 11 hour flight does not appear to be an issue for Theroux as he described his bi-coastal life with Aniston as "kind of perfect."

Appearing recently in Interview, Theroux was asked about his living arrangements and what he likes about living some of the time in L.A. Theroux said it was mainly Aniston's presence but also that there was a difference in lifestyle to New York which he enjoyed. He said "I like all the clichés. I mean, I love someone who lives in Los Angeles-so that's a big draw. But I love the weather. It does feel like a slightly healthier lifestyle, being able to hike and do all that crap."

Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston
Theroux lives in both New York and Los Angeles.

He also stated that he loves New York and enjoys being able to get things done easily and how everything is within walking distance. Theroux said "I love New York. Right now, it's kind of perfect. I'm in New York part of the time and in L.A. part of the time. That's always been a goal, to be bicoastal in a real way."

Aniston and Theroux began dating in May 2011 and became engaged in August of the following year. Their lives have been well documented owing to media attention and Theroux described how the paparazzi were a constant presence, like his "own personal drone."

Theroux currently stars in HBO's The Leftovers alongside Liv Tyler and Christopher Eccleston. The series follows the lives of a group of people in a New York town after 2% of the World's population disappears in what they believe to be is part of the rapture. The Leftovers airs on HBO on Sundays at 10pm.

A Week In Movies: Stars Stage Photo-Calls As Apes, Greek Gods And Musicians, While Will Ferrell Films In Los Angeles 4271480 News

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

It was a week for photo-calls, as the cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes gathered in San Francisco.

The film opens next week in the US and July 18th in the UK. Watch 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' trailer.

Dwayne Johnson and his costars in the blockbuster retelling of the Hercules myth gathered in London this week to meet the press.

The film opens at the end of the month. Take a look at some photo's from the Hercules Photocall taken in London on Wednesday 2nd July 2014.

Begin Again

Also in London, Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and James Corden held a photo-call in advance of the release of their new musical drama Begin Again, which just opened in New York and Los Angeles and is set to expand across America and Europe next week. Browse the 'Begin Again' photocall pics, watch the 'Begin Again' trailer or read our Begin Again movie review.

And in Los Angeles, Will Ferrell was snapped filming scenes for his upcoming comedy Get Hard. Dressed in a prison uniform, he shot the scene in front of a house in clear view of the paparazzi.

The big new trailer this week is for Horrible Bosses 2,which reunites original cast members Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey, plus Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine.

The film won the screenwriting award at this year's Sundance Film Festival. It looks pretty amazing. Watch 'The Skeleton Twins' trailer.

'Horrible Bosses 2' Trailer: The Scheming Trio Are Back For Number Two (Poop Jokes Included) 4269178 News

The trailer has been released for the upcoming comedy sequel, Horrible Bosses 2, giving us our first glimpse of the follow-up to the successful and hilarious 2011 movie. Number two (yes, there are poop jokes in the movie) sees Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day reprise their roles as the unhappy workers who find themselves in even more of a pickle than before.

After having tried to murder their respective bosses in the previous film, Nick, Dale and Kurt are now under three new bosses who are all as equally mean or deranged. The trio decide that they'll start their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again.

The new film welcomes Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine but of course, we'll be seeing some familiar faces, such as Kevin Spacey, Jennifer, and Jamie Foxx return in the sequel.

Everything is going well until a cunning investor forces them to lose control of their entrepreneurial plans. The three take advice from a consultant who suggests they'll need to be more ruthless if they want their scheme to succeed: by kidnapping the investor's son and holding him for ransom. Will things finally go to plan? It's unlikely.

More: Kevin Spacey says 'Horrible Bosses 2' cast spent most of their time laughing on set.

Directed and co-written by Sean Anders ('She's Out of My League', 'We're the Millers', 'Dumb and Dumber To'), Horrible Bosses 2 employs the writing talents of John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein ('Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2').

Watch the 'Horrible Bosses 2' trailer.

Spurred on by Horrible Bosses' largely positive reviews and $210 million box office takings, the second film will include a lot of the same humour and hijinks that made its predecessor so memorable.

Horrible Bosses 2 will be released on the 26th November in the US and the 28th November in the UK.

Having previously got involved with a scheme to kill their abusive bosses (a plan which didn't go exactly as they thought), Nick, Dale and Kurt think they can do anything. Now under three new bosses that are equally mean, they decide that they want to start up their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again. Everything seems to be in place until a cunning investor forces them to lose control of their entrepreneurial plans. With no legal standing and no money, the trio turn to their trusty crime consultant who suggests they start to be a little more ruthless if they want to pull off their latest scheme; to kidnap the investor's son and hold him for ransom. Nick, Dale and Kurt are hoping that everything will go to plan this time - but that's looking unlikely.

'Horrible Bosses 2' is the hilarious sequel to 2011's 'Horrible Bosses' which saw our main stars shed off their mean superiors; a psychpath, a maneater and cocaine addict. The new movie has been directed by Sean Anders ('She's Out of My League', 'We're the Millers', 'Dumb and Dumber To') who worked on the movie alongside his co-writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein ('Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2', 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone'). The film will hit the UK on November 28th 2014.

Matching her dapper significant other, Aniston rocked a flattering black-on-black ensemble. For the special occasion, she chose a rather conservative black shirt and an a relaxed black pencil skirt. She wore her hair in loose, tousled waves past her shoulders, and kept the accessories to a minimum—just earrings, a gold watch, and her huge diamond engagement ring.

Theroux also went minimal, in a navy in a Dior Homme navy wool suit and crisp white shirt. He and his future wife—engaged since 2012 – radiated happiness on the red carpet. They kept their arms wrapped around each other, as they posed for photos on the red carpet.

It was the perfect public appearance to discourage the rumors that the pair had hit a rough patch in their relationship.

An eyewitness told E! News: "Justin and Jennifer were very lovey dovey. They were upstairs in a private VIP area all night, along with Liv Tyler and Arrested Development’s Jason Bateman

"[They acted like] they were at their own private party. They didn't socialise much with other people."

Just What Was It That Made 'Friends' So Great? 4251810 News

We’re feeling pretty nostalgic (and old) because it’s been ten years since the final episode of Friends aired. We’d sort of been getting by on the hope that a reunion episode would take place, but mean Matt LeBlanc ruined that dream. The actor, who played Joey, recently said: “That show was about a finite period of time in life, after college and before your relationship and family starts and where your friends are your support system. That’s what the magic of the show was - everyone goes through that and can relate to that.”

Friends Jay Leno

That wasn’t the only magic that Friends had. The reason that the show was so popular for so long was a combination of a dozen or so factors that just worked. The chemistry between the cast was palpable, you could just tell that Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox were best friends in real life and that translated onto their onscreen friendship.

MORE: Courtney Cox has said it, Friends reunion is not going to happen

Each actor couldn’t have been picked more perfectly. No-one could argue that David Schwimmer wasn’t perfect as geeky (but sort of hunky) palaeontologist Ross, or that Matthew Perry didn’t have the dead-on comic timing combined with a hint of vulnerability that made him Chandler. We laughed with them, most of us grew up with them, the Friends gang went through their rites of passage onscreen before lots of us, letting us know what we were in for.

It was hard not to become deeply invested in the show, the characters were so well written and maintained over a long period of time. Any Friends fan could say, “That’s so Rachel,” or “Monica would never do that,” and know with a certainty that you knew them as people rather than as characters. Even the sound of the show’s theme tune, The Rembrandts “I’ll Be There For You,” inspires a Pavlovian in anyone who has been a fan of the show.

The final episode of Friends, which saw Monica and Chandler move out of their famous apartment, Ross and Rachel reunited, Phoebe married off and Joey…well, still Joey, raked in $70 million for NBC, at the time a record for an entertainment series. The six friends moved on with their lives and fans were left to imagine where they ended up. Fortunately, fans knew them so well they’ve all got their own pretty good idea about what happened to their long lost friends and maybe that’s for the best.

Jennifer Aniston sees confidence coach 4233519 News

Jennifer Aniston has been seeing ''confidence counsellor'' ahead of George Clooney's wedding.

The 'Horrible Bosses' actress - who is engaged to Justin Theroux - is said to be nervous of coming face-to-face with ex-husband Brad Pitt and his fiancee Angelina Jolie when their mutual friend ties the knot with lawyer Amal Alamuddin later this year, so is doing everything she can to put her anxieties to rest.

A source said: ''Jen's no stranger to therapy, so she decided to seek some help.

''At the wedding, she'll have Justin there for support, but the thought of seeing Brad and Angelina is quite overwhelming. The therapist has been helping to build her confidence and eliminate the fear she seems to have built up about coming face-to-face with them.

''She has also been having hypnotherapy.''

Though Jennifer has seen Brad and Angelina only once, at the 2009 Oscars, since they divorced nine years ago, she is said to be particularly concerned about the wedding as it will be so intimate.

The source added to Britain's Grazia magazine: ''The Oscars were one thing, but George's wedding will involve being in a smaller, far more intimate group where they won't be able to avoid one another. Jen wants to be as breezy as possible.

''She has been doing role plays with her confidence coach and will be as prepared as she can be.''

Jennifer Aniston's Half-brother To Be A Father - Report 4231310 News

Actress Jennifer Aniston is reportedly set to become an aunt - her younger half-brother's partner is pregnant.

Alex Aniston, known to pals as A.J., was recently photographed leaving a Los Angeles medical clinic with his girlfriend Adriane Hallek, who was clutching an ultrasound photo purportedly showing their unborn child.

The young couple has yet to comment on the baby news or their relationship, but model and make-up artist Hallek tells the National Enquirer, "He's a great guy, but I don't want to talk about him. He likes his privacy."

A.J. is the son of veteran actor John Aniston and his second wife, Sherry Rooney.

If the baby news is true, the baby will be John's first grandchild.

Actress Jennifer Aniston is reportedly set to become an aunt - her younger half-brother's partner is pregnant.

Alex Aniston, known to pals as A.J., was recently photographed leaving a Los Angeles medical clinic with his girlfriend Adriane Hallek, who was clutching an ultrasound photo purportedly showing their unborn child.

The young couple has yet to comment on the baby news or their relationship, but model and make-up artist Hallek tells the National Enquirer, "He's a great guy, but I don't want to talk about him. He likes his privacy."

A.J. is the son of veteran actor John Aniston and his second wife, Sherry Rooney.

If the baby news is true, the baby will be John's first grandchild.

In this crime comedy caper, based on Elmore Leonard’s book, ‘The Switch”, Daniel Schechter faithfully recreates a 1970s Detroit with Mos Def, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, Mark Boone Junior, John Hawkes, Seana Kofoed, Alex Ladovea and Chyna Layne comprising an impressive supporting cast. 

Life of CrimeHow can she get out of this one?

It wasn’t easy,” said Schechter of bringing the 70s to the screen once more. “The two largest locations in this film were two very different houses that needed to be impressive, photogenic, appropriate, available and then, of course, period. In fact, one of them had to look more 50′s than 70′s. Even if you could remove every stick of furniture and re-wallpaper the house, what about the stoves, cabinets, tiling, counters, etc.?”

“Mike Hartel did the locations and hit a home run and saved our asses. I still marvel at what we found and how we got it done. Love those locations so much. But it was hard to get wide shots of exteriors, hard to avoid modern cars, it was expensive to rent old cars, and dress extras, re-decorate homes/locations… but it was all worth it,” he continued in his interview with Film-maker.

But there's just one tiny problem: he doesn't want to see her again. He's been racking his brains to find a way he might possibly be able to leave her without the costly disadvantages of alimony, divorce costs and child support and now it seems the solution has finally dropped into his lap.
