There’s certain to be a plunge in Jennifer Aniston sightings now that “Wanderlust,” the new comedy re-teaming Aniston with her “The Object of My Affection” co-star Paul Rudd has wrapped in town.
Both stars attended the film’s wrap party this week at Ecco in Midtown. The soiree was hosted by their “Wanderlust” co-star Alan Alda.
The film is directed by David Wain who is best known for directing Rudd in the buddy comedy “Role Models.” Wain most recently helmed “Childrens’ Hospital,” the popular series of subversive shorts airing on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim line-up.
We’re told that Aniston and company enjoyed great Italian wine with their meal and later “exchanged custom comical T-shirts with each other.”
The former “Friends” star’s bodyguard, meanwhile, sat nearby in the dining room, chowing down on a steak (apparently, the presence of Alan Alda presented no perceived threat. . .).
The film focusing on “an urban couple branching out to live a more counter-culture lifestyle” is scheduled for a Fall 2011 release. And here’s a fun factoid: Rudd is once again playing a character named George opposite his former “Object” castmate.
Ecco chef Micah Willix received a round of applause from the actors when he stopped by their table to welcome them.
On Thursday night, Aniston was spotted relaxing at the bar inside the St. Regis hotel in Buckhead. Eyewitnesses assure Intel that the 41-year-old Hollywood actress wasn’t at the hotel in order to score anti-aging tips at the crowded seminar being held in the ballroom down the hall by Atlanta facial plastic surgeon Dr. Chip Cole.
The entire Buffalo Sabres NHL team, meanwhile, was spotted dining together in the private room at Morton’s The Steakhouse downtown. Spies tell Intel that the team prepared for tonight’s game with the Atlanta Thrashers by scarfing down some of Morton’s signature steaks, chocolate souffles and watching the World Series.
After dinner, the team stuck around to play poker and to sip on on wine and some “very good scotch.”
