LOS ANGELES — Jennifer Aniston said she pushed her sex-crazed dentist character as far as she could in in "Horrible Bosses 2," but she's willing to try again in a third installment.
Asked if another sequel is in the works, the actress replied, "I don't know," she said. "It's up to you all."
"Horrible Bosses 2," the follow-up to the 2011 hit, opens Nov. 24. It stars Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day as amateur entrepreneurs who get caught up in a kidnapping scheme when their business deal with a conniving investor, played by Christolph Waltz, goes awry.
The actors improvised a lot during filming, Aniston said in a recent interview, until it became a gross-out contest between the stars.
"This one went into a territory that I think just wasn't even funny," she said. "I couldn't even make it dirty funny. It was just bad dirty."
When it came to creating her character, Aniston said she told the filmmakers: "Just go as far as you can until someone actually gets sick from it."
She feels like there's more to do be done with Dr. Julia Harris.
"She's hardly tapped out," Aniston said. "We all were a bit sad when this movie came to an end because I, for one, felt it was too soon to end Julia's party."
As Aniston promotes her new comedy, she's also getting potential awards attention for her dramatic turn in "Cake," which is open in limited release. The 45-year-old actress said she tries not to get caught up in awards-season buzz: "It's flattering, it's humbling, it's exciting, whatever, to even be in that conversation, so to speak, so I think that's just a win in itself."
She's not ruling out a return to TV, either, though she didn't hint at any specific plans.
"I've never said never to coming back to television," the "Friends" star said. "Television is pretty fantastic these days."
