Aniston unhappy at title switch

Jennifer Aniston reckons the original title for her latest film was better
Jennifer Aniston reckons the original title for her latest film was better

Jennifer Aniston has dazzled at the premiere of her new movie - then grumbled about the film's title.

The star was on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles for the screening of latest film The Switch, in which she is a single woman who opts to have a baby with a sperm donor.

But she said she preferred the original title for the film, The Baster.

Former Friends star Jen, 41, wore a strapless mini-dress as she attended the film with co-star Jason Bateman at the Arclight Theatre.

She said: "I wished it was still called The Baster, [it changed because of] tests and meetings and focus groups. Cool names like The Baster get switched to The Switch."

Reporters have been using the film's release as an opportunity to grill the actress about baby plans - of which she says she has none. In the comedy Jen plays a single woman who decides to have a baby with a sperm donor.

Jennifer says she's become used to people wanting to know everything about her personal life.

"I think I've gotten used to people prying into parts of my life, whatever movie."

Bateman plays her onscreen best friend who, after a drunken night out, secretly switches in his own sperm.

"He's my dear old friend and I was happy to work with him finally again," Jen told reporters.
