Jennifer Aniston Reveals 'Life of Crime'

Jennifer Aniston joined her Life of Crime co-stars Will Forte and Tim Robbins to premiere their new Elmore Leonard crime comedy at the closing night of the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, and the conversation quickly turned to the film's fabulous '70s fashions!
"Polyester was running rampant," Jennifer, who was accompanied by fiancé Justin Theroux, told ET Canada with a smile. She added that sometimes she hits the town with a '70s-inspired look: "Well, there's always like a little bohemian vibe every once in a while – a good bell-bottom, who doesn't love that? A nice tube top."
Set in late '70s Detroit, Life of Crime is based on the late Elmore Leonard's The Switch and is actually a prequel to Rum Punch (which was directed by Quentin Tarantino as Jackie Brown in 1997). The dark comedy follows a pair of blundering ex-cons (John Hawkes and Mos Def) who hatch a plan to kidnap the wife (played by Aniston) of a real estate developer (played by Robbins) for a $1 million ransom. The catch is that Robbins' character can't stand his wife anyway, and makes little effort to get her back since he's cheating on her with Isla Fisher's character. Forte plays a loser at their country club who pines for Aniston. The film is directed by Daniel Schechter.
Robbins was happy to be closing the prestigious festival with their film, and added, "We only wish Elmore Leonard could be with us."
