“Let’s go and have a beautiful shared experience together and let that be our gift,” the 47-year-old actress declared in Parade magazine‘s latest December issue, where she is featured on the cover alongside her Office Christmas Party co-stars Olivia Munn and Jason Bateman.
Jennifer on her past Christmas traditions: “My mom and I would go to Tavern on the Green [in New York City]. We’d treat ourselves to a Christmas Eve dinner there,” she says. “I’d wake up, spend Christmas with my mom and then I’d go with my dad to my stepmom’s in Jersey. Then I’d go to my grandmother’s in Pennsylvania and see all the Greeks. I traveled a lot of ground. And I looked forward to it. Especially when you got to the Greeks, because they’re so much fun. And I did get a nice little stash of goodies.”
Jennifer on working with Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer in Office Christmas Party: “Those girls are constantly doing improv and I don’t know what’s about to come out of their mouths. Try to get through a scene without laughing. I’m like, ‘Get it together, Aniston!’”
