It all began simply enough on Thursday (Mar. 16) morning. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, costars for the upcoming Murder Mystery 2, sat down with Holly Willoughby and Phil Schofield of This Morning to discuss the film – and it all went haywire when Jennifer, 54, dropped an s-bomb. The curse word came when the Friends alum discussed how some of the stunts in the movie were “actually real.” “There’s real, there’s some creation, but Jennifer was scared to fall off the Eiffel Tower,” said Adam, 56. “They called ‘action,’ and she didn’t jump, and I just snuck up and pushed her. It was fun to see that reaction.”
“I can imagine, someone pretending to push you off the Eiffel Tower. What fun!” said This Morning host Phil. Jennifer remarked, “Yeah, just for s**ts and giggles.” Immediately, Jennifer knew she had messed up and she covered her mouth as everyone laughed at her faux pas. “Sorry about that,” said Holly, apologizing to the viewers. Jennifer said, “I’m sure you could bleep that.” “No, no — it’s live,” said Phil in his laughter. While Jen seemed embarrassed, Adam wasn’t bothered. “At least you said ‘giggles.’ There was happiness after that!”
Murder Mystery 2 is the sequel to the 2019 Netflix film. In the first film, New York cop Nick (Sadler) and his wife, Audrey (Aniston), were on a European vacation when they were framed for the death of a billionaire.
