Fresh off being named again People magazine's World's Most Beautiful Woman, Jennifer Aniston is starring in a new comedy from director Garry Marshall that opens next week.

In "Mother's Day," Aniston plays a single mom with two sons who's learning to deal with her ex-husband's new, younger wife.

Jason Sudeikis plays a single dad trying to maneuver life with two daughters.

The film marks the fifth time the two have worked together, but the first time either have worked with Marshall.

"I literally am a huge fan," Sudeikis said. "Anybody of our age was sort of raised by him, whether it be 'Happy Days,' 'Laverne & Shirley.' My favorite movie of his was 'Nothing in Common.' It was great to talk to him about that film.

Asked about how she honored her own mother on the holiday growing up, Aniston revealed a hidden talent.

"It was always something crafty," she said. "It was something that I made. I whittled."

To which a surprised Sudeikis asked: "Can you still whittle? If I gave you a knife and a raw piece of wood?"

"Absolutely," Aniston replied. "I could make you a dolphin."

"Mother's Day" which also stars Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson and Timothy Olyphant, opens April 29.
