Jennifer Aniston has kissed several of her co-stars on the screen, but for her 2013 movie We’re The Millers, she had to kiss the teenage actor Will Poulter for a scene. Years later, Aniston shed light on how she felt about kissing a co-star who was 10 years younger than her. Interestingly, Poulter, too, in a different interview, spoke about the same, adding it all happened before the concept of intimacy coordinators was introduced in movies. Scroll down to know the details.

Jennifer Aniston ended up kissing Will Poulter in We’re The Millers for a scene where she teaches him how to kiss. In the movie, Aniston played the role of his fake mother. In an interview, Poulter later admitted to being “very sorry” about the whole thing. For the unversed, the road movie also starred Emma Roberts and Jason Sudeikis in prominent roles.

According to Showbiz Cheatsheet, Jennifer Aniston researched whether kissing a teenager was legal or not before she started filming for the movie. “It was just a kiss. That’s not illegal,” said Aniston, adding she “looked way into it,” before she went on the set. The movie’s director, Rawson Thurber shared that Aniston was reportedly comfortable kissing the 19-year-old Will Poulter, adding that it was her idea to kiss the teen star. “I think it was Jen who thought it would be funny if Rose [Aniston] joined in, which made all the difference in the sequence,” said Thurber.

Will Poulter later shared that the Friends star, who was 45 at the time of filming, was “very supportive” during their “very awkward” kissing scene. “It was kind of a bizarre scene to film, we kind of just laughed our way through it,” said Pouter adding, “It was a very awkward day for all involved.”

Poulter, however, dubbed it as “the greatest experience of that young boy’s life, which he will remember forever.” The actor, in another interview, stated, “She was very supportive and took care of me and was aware that, being a 19-year-old kid in that scenario, I was very nervous.”

He further shared, “This was before intimacy coordinators, which I really would have appreciated. It’s one of those things- any scene where there’s some level of intimacy in the context of a broad comedy, where it’s very much a joke and it’s not played with romantic sincerity, is always really awkward. Obviously my main concern in that moment was for Jen and Emma, who I felt very sorry for.”
