Toronto festival spotlights big stars in its final screenings, with Jennifer Aniston, Daniel Radcliffe, Elizabeth Olsen & more
by EOL Staff Mon., Sep. 9, 2013 1:23 PM PDT Loading… You know what they say. The couple that food shops together, stays together. Or something like that. In any case, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux were spotted by X17 doing just that on Saturday, Sept. 7, as they were seen making their way out of a Bel Air, Calif, grocery store. So what exactly did the engaged duo decide to purchase? Well, it seems the pretty pair opted to fill their bags up with quite a few items, including some cereal. Namely, Fruity Pebbles and Frosted Flakes. Aww, how sweet.
Wednesday saw the Toronto festival debut of Kill Your Darlings. The film, starring Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg , takes place in early 1940s New York. Ginsberg, William Burroughs (Ben Foster), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and other soon-to-be bright lights try to decipher why their friend Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan) murdered Burroughs friend David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall). Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kyra Sedgwick co-star as the women in their lives. Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan appear for The Love Punch at the Toronto festival. Thursdays premiere of Love Punch brought star Pierce Brosnan to Toronto. The onetime 007 co-stars with Emma Thompson in the caper comedy, as they play a divorced couple planning to go after retirement money that was stolen from them. Thursday also brought The Face of Love, with Robin Williams, Annette Bening and Ed Harris in a tale of second-time-around love for a widow. Fest-goers were also buzzing about: Joe, with a bearded, scruffy Cage playing the unlikely mentor of a 15-year-old boy in director David Gordon Greens film; Blue Ruin, a taut, nightmarish revenge thriller in the mode of Blood Simple; and Filthy Gorgeous: The Bob Guccione Story, a documentary on the gold-chain-wearing Penthouse magazine publisher whose skin mag once rivaled Hugh Hefners Playboy. The weekend will wind up with the closing-night film, Life of Crime, a big-score crime drama adapted from a novel by the late Elmore Leonard. Jennifer Aniston, Isla Fisher, Mos Def and John Hawkes co-star.
Jennifer Aniston Reveals Question That Frustrates Her Most
Jennifer Aniston: Being Sh*tty Has Become a Sport I didnt realize you could place orders, I honestly didnt realize it was like a drive-through, that you could talk to a little electronic voice, Aniston said. Aniston, 44, admitted to Robach that she had doubts about her latest role in Were the Millers. Her character is a down-on-her-luck stripper who agrees to help a small-time drug dealer (Jason Sudeikis) smuggle a marijuana shipment over the Mexican border by posing as his wife. The fake couple also have two fake children who were recruited by Sudeikis character. Aniston Reveals Why She and Theroux Are Still Not Married Aniston said she initially said yes to the film, but then doubt set in. I said yes thinking wouldnt that be great, thinking, well, Ive never played a stripper, at least not in film then this panic sets in three weeks, two weeks, one week before the actual day of shooting, she said. Aniston worked out an hour a day, six days a week, to get ready for her stripper scenes. Honestly it was the craziest workout, she said. My diet has always been pretty clean but I think I was super, super strict, especially in terms of, Ill usually cheat once or twice a week and I just kind of didnt. Despite the adult content, the racy comedy has heart and a family-centered theme.

Jennifer Aniston gets ‘dirty’ with Jason Sudeikis
This time, in Wednesday’s comedy We’re the Millers, Aniston, 44, plays what she jokingly calls a “dirty, dirty stripper,” a woman who finds herself with “no intention of being where she was at this part of her life. I saw the part that was a little closed up and beaten down by disappointments.” Aniston’s Rose teams up with Jason Sudeikis’ small-time pot dealer Dave to haul an RV full of marijuana across the border from Mexico. To help fool the authorities, they’re joined by a fake son and daughter. Crazy antics involving a poisonous spider and inter-familial kissing lessons ensue. It’s the third time Aniston and Sudeikis are paired up on film, after 2010’s The Bounty Hunter and 2011’s Horrible Bosses. “We did two movies together,” Sudeikis says. “We worked more together on Bounty Hunter. We had more scenes together, which means two. We chatted a little bit about (Millers). I like that Dave starts out selfish and he ends up being a little selfless.” Director Rawson Marshall Thurber had seen Aniston’s lascivious dentist in Bosses and was smitten. “She stole the show there and was funny and fearless. She could hold the screen with Jason and she has a natural mothering nature to her.
