"I love her to death", Parton said of Aniston, 49, who stars in and produced the movie. "I mean, that is a quote". Well, Jennifer Aniston did not seem too keen for that.
However, Jennifer dismissed the actualities of actually getting up to mischief with Dolly and Carl in the bedroom, insisting: "That was just talk-show fodder". "I literally couldn't have a squeak come out, and then when we finished, I remembered, I just burst into tears", Aniston recently said.
