Jennifer Aniston braved freezing temperatures to walk the red carpet at the gala premiere of 'The Bounty Hunter' in London last night (11.03.10).
The screen beauty - who plays Nicole Hurly, a bail-jumping reporter being pursued by her bounty hunter ex-husband Milo Boyd, portrayed by Gerard, in the movie - insists being chained to one of Hollywood's biggest hunks has its drawbacks.
When quizzed about what it was like to be handcuffed to the heartthrob, a smiling Jennifer told BANG Showbiz: "It was terrible. No really, it hurt. It was painful, they really cut into my wrists."
Jennifer was speaking at the gala premiere of the film at the Vue cinema in London's Leicester Square last night (11.03.10), and both she and Gerard braved the cold to meet fans.
Both stars praised everyone for turning out in the freezing temperatures as they addressed the crowd from a stage, although at one point the 41-year-old actress was visibly shivering in her Valentino couture dress and a black jacket designed by the late Alexander McQueen.
Gerard - who has been romantically linked to Jennifer since they met on the set of 'The Bounty Hunter' - was greeted by hundreds of screaming female fans but admits he finds it hard to comprehend his sex symbol status.
The 40-year-old Scottish star said: "I've always seen myself as a guy who struggles through life, and now everyday people go, 'What's it like to be a sex symbol."
