Jennifer Aniston was totally ''up for'' stripping in her new movie 'We're the Millers'.

The 'Friends' actress plays a saucy dancer in the new comedy - which centres on a drug dealer who hires her character and two teenagers to form a pretend family so he can smuggle illegal substances across the US border without detection - and the 44-year-old beauty had no qualms about performing a striptease for the role.

Director Rawson Marshall Thurber said: ''I just thought it would be a fun moment. It didn't take any persuasion to get her to do it. She really liked the script and wanted to play the part.

''She was up for it... It's this bizarre moment of the 'mum' being able to save her family by stripping. We were shooting it in a shack in 120-degree heat and it was a long day for her, but she's a pro.

''She's in great shape and comfortable in her own body, and she nailed it. People who've seen it ask if it's all Jen and I'm happy to report that it is.''

And fans may see even more of Jennifer - who is engaged to actor-and-screenwriter Justin Theroux - in her naughty role, as the director hints there may be a sequel in the works.

He added to Empire magazine: ''With good characters I think it's always a good thing to continue a story.''
