Aniston added that she's "known Justin for a long time. We met when he was shooting 'Tropic Thunder.'"

Shooting "Wanderlust" in a remote location with Theroux, 40, Paul Rudd, 42, and Malin Akerman, 33, was a dream come true for Aniston.

"The main thing that was so refreshing for me was being in Clarksville, Ga., which was so far in the middle of nowhere. There's sort of a parallel experience between what happened with my character in the movie and with me in life," Aniston said. "All of my guards fell away. I felt this weight off of my shoulders of constantly being on guard or looking over my shoulder or [asking], 'What's that over there?' or 'Who has a cell phone?'"
