Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston says the stripping scene in her new comedy movie 'We're The Millers' was 'daunting' to film.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (AUGUST 14, 2013) (REUTERS) -  Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston was in London on Wednesday (August 14) for the UK premiere of her new movie 'We're The Millers', a comedy in which she plays a stripper.

As she walked the red carpet at London's Leicester Square, the former Friends star admitted her preparations for removing her clothes on camera had involved a lot of work in the gym, but added 'we're always at the gym'.

"I learned the dance routine, that was pretty much it so that was a lot of fun," she said.

Of her main stripping scene she said: "It was daunting yes but we got through it. After about an hour of being there it was fine."

The movie tells the story of a small-time pot dealer (Jason Sudeikis) who tries to clear a debt by smuggling drugs over the Mexican border.

Needing a cover story with which to try to dupe border guards, he forms a perfect all-American family to take on a road trip in a huge shiny RV, roping in cynical stripper Rose (Aniston) to act as his wife and wannabe customer Kenny (Will Poulter) to play his teenage son.

Sudeikis, who also appeared alongside Jennifer in the 2011 comedy Horrible Bosses, said of his on-screen chemistry with his co-star: "I think it has a lot to do with just who she is as a person. We hit it off a long time ago when we first met and we have worked together a couple of times but yeah I mean the familiarity does help. It's pretty easy to have chemistry with her."

But he revealed Aniston had a closed set for the very raunchiest scenes.

"Actually I don't even get to watch most of it, the most I got to see was at the premiere in New York, tonight will be the second time... I am just watching two tennis balls. I apologise for peeling back the curtain like that and explaining how the sausage is made but that's what happened," he said.

Jennifer, who is engaged to actor Justin Theroux, wore a prom-style floral dress to the premiere.

We're The Millers is released in cinemas in the UK on August 23.
