LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jennifer Aniston is a box office superstar, but she told Access Hollywood she is interested in venturing into the world of design.
“What would you like to have as a line?” Access’ own Billy Bush asked her during the junket for her new movie with Aaron Eckhart, “Love Happens,” which opens on September 18.
“I’d love to do a bathing suit line,” Jennifer revealed.
Jennifer explained that one reason behind her desire to design comes from her own swimsuit experiences.
“I always have a hard time finding a good bathing suit and so I usually end up tailoring bathing suits,” she said.
The actress said she would like to see more variety in the swimsuit world.
“Why?” Billy asked. “Is it because the top usually differs from the bottom?”
“It’s like… You should be able to mix and match your bottoms,” Jennifer said.
Billy asked what kind of swimwear Jennifer liked on men and she revealed her preference is for a classic California look.
“I like a surf short,” she said. “I think that’s beautiful.”
And while she likes the board shorts, when asked by Billy what kind of underwear she likes on a man, Jennifer said she prefers a more snug fit.
“Um, I like uh, I like tighty-whities on a man,” she said.
“The brief?” Billy asked.
“Not boxers. I don’t like boxers,” she said. “Boxer briefs.”
While Jennifer is opinionated about her choices in men’s underwear, she also has a strong opinion about her “Love Happens” co-star, Aaron Eckhart, and in particular, about his performance in their movie.
“I haven’t been able to even say this yet to you. You are so unbelievable in this movie,” Jennifer told Aaron during the interview. “I was, I was so blown away. I saw it a couple months ago in New York.”
Jennifer said Aaron’s performance moved her to tears when catching a screening.
“I just… couldn’t stop,” she said. “We had no tissues.”
