Jennifer Aniston stepped off an elevator Saturday and became one of the hottest reporters at the Daily News.
Well, kinda …
Aniston - along with a film crew and an enthusiastic cadre of extras - were shooting scenes for the upcoming action comedy “The Bounty.”
The former “Friends” star plays a hard-nosed New York reporter who gets arrested while investigating a story.
Instead of making a scheduled court appearance she doggedly pursues her lead, and her ex-hubby - played by Scotsman Gerard Butler - is the bail bondsman charged with hunting her down.
The petite stunner looked right at home as she strode down the halls, past the framed photos of The News’ Pulitzer Prize-winning writers.
Dressed in a white sleeveless blouse, gray miniskirt and high heels, she ducked into the ladies’ room for a powwow with a colleague before heading into the newsroom.
The movie is directed by Andy Tennant (”Hitch,” “Sweet Home Alabama”) and also stars “Saturday Night Live’s” Jason Sudeikis as a Daily News reporter with a crush on Aniston.
In between takes, Aniston laughed with techs and wardrobe aides and snacked on thinly peeled string cheese.
The extras delighted in the behind-the-scenes peek at the Daily News, and marveled at the framed front pages.
“It’s exciting, seeing everything on the wall. Normally it’s a contrived set,” actress Michelle DiBenedetti said.
Actors were issued laminated Daily News ID cards as props. “I hope they let us keep them,” extra Julie Stone said.
“It’d be a great souvenir.”
