Jennifer Aniston knows a thing or two about going through a bad breakup. At the Tribeca Film Festival last week, Will Forte gushed about how costar Aniston had his back on the set of their currently Untitled Elmore Leonard Project, which they recently shot in Connecticut.
"I was going through a breakup at the time and she was so giving and really helped me through it," the 42-year-old former Saturday Night Live star told omg!. "I cannot say enough good about her."
In his upcoming film, Forte plays a criminal who helps kidnap a jilted housewife (Aniston). Though the actor kept the identity of his ex a secret, he did offer plenty of praise to his costar.
"She was just a fantastic person," he said. "She was a delight to act with as much as a delight to get to know."
While Forte recovers from his split, Aniston, 44, is currently planning her wedding to fiance Justin Theroux. The couple became engaged in August 2012, but don't appear to be in a rush to get down the aisle.
On Apr. 16 at the premiere of Lifetime's Call Me Crazy, A Five Film, Aniston told E! News that she hasn't picked out a wedding dress yet. "No, no, no," she said.
And her good friend Chelsea Handler is helping her keep her plans a secret. "She doesn't consult me about her plans," Handler told Katie Couric on March 8. "I'm sure I'll find out about it when it's about to happen like a last minute thing . . . for privacy issues."
