In a 2021 video interview with InStyle Magazine, Aniston revealed her true thoughts on Leprechaun, which came via mention of one of her other early films, 1999’s Office Space.
At one point during the interview, she was challenged to pick items from a bag that each had relevance to her life. Here, she looked back on Office Space and discussed how it became a cult title.
“Office Space [was] one of the first movies I ever did,” Aniston recalled. “No one thought it would become the cult classic that it did, but it’s pretty cool if you ask me.”
She continued: “There’s loads of movies where you’re thinking: ‘Oh god, this is just… how am I going to survive this in my future?’ And then it’s a cult… ‘something’ because it’s so embarrassing.”
The actor then explained that she didn’t mean that Office Space was an “embarrassing” picture. “That movie wasn’t! That movie was special,” she said before humorously murmuring: “I was talking about Leprechaun.”
Aniston’s revelation comes after comments she made in 2019 when she said she had re-watched Leprechaun ten years earlier with her ex-boyfriend Justin Theroux. Although the couple stuck it on for “s***s and giggles”, she couldn’t bear it and kept leaving the room “cringing”.
I wonder how Warwick Davis feels about the film.
