Jennifer Aniston, the object of Jason Sudeikis' 15-year crush
So Jennifer Aniston and "Saturday Night Live" funnyman Jason Sudeikis are not dating -- but that shouldn't suggest he hasn't had a longtime crush on the actress.
In the DVD extras for "The Bounty Hunter," which features Aniston and Sudeikis, the actor spoke of his affections for the A-lister.
"They said, 'OK, Your character has to have a crush on Jennifer's character,'" Sudeikis says in a behind-the-scenes feature. "I've been sort of working on that for the past 15 years. So that'll be easy to accomplish now. Get on film and make it last forever."
Aniston shouldn't let it go to her head, however. Costar Gerard Butler gets some Sudeikis love too.
"Oddly enough, I'd also had a crush on Gerard Butler for 15 years. ... That's been the hardest part, pretending not to like him [in the film]," he said.
"The Bounty Hunter" hits shelves Tuesday on DVD and Blu-Ray.
