Jennifer Aniston sparkled in a sequined dress at the LA premiere of her new dark comedy "Life of Crime". The 45-year-old plays Mickey, the trophy wife of a corrupt real estate developer who refuses to pay her ransom when she's kidnapped. Based on Elmore Leonard's 1978 novel The Switch and directed by Daniel Schechter, Aniston said being part of the project was a no brainer. SOUNDBITE (English) actress Jennifer Aniston, saying: ''The situation was where the director called and asked if I would do it, I read the script, I met him, I loved him, I loved Elmore Leonard, I loved the all the movies that had been adapted from his books. It is hard to say no." So in a nutshell the kidnapping backfires. One of many problems the two common criminals face is being interrupted by Will Forte's character Marshall - who has a crush for Mickey. Forte was also out for the premiere, and full of praise for his co-star Aniston. SOUNDBITE (English) actor Will Forte, saying: "It was such a treat to work with Jennifer. I got to meet her when she hosted 'SNL' when i was there and I didn't get to know her that well. This was the first time we really got to know each other and she is just a wonderful person and a great, great actress." "Life of Crime" opens in the US on August 29.
