In 1993, Jennifer Aniston made her film debut with the horror-comedy film, “Leprechaun,” which was written and directed by Mark Jones. In the film, Warwick Davis plays a leprechaun named Lubdan who believes that a family is in possession of his pot of gold. Aniston plays Tory Redding, the teenage daughter of the aforementioned family. “Leprechaun” didn’t exactly fare well with audiences or critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, it holds a 27% Tomatometer score and a 32% audience score.
In an interview on The Howard Stern Show, Aniston revealed that she has revisited the film in recent years — and finds it hard to get through. She said, “I watched it like, 8 years ago with our mutual friend Justin Theroux for sh**s and giggles. We were dating. It was one of those things when I tried to get that remote out of his hand and there was just no having it. He was like, ‘No, no, no, no, this is happening.’ I just kept walking in and out, cringing” (via MovieWeb).
We suspect that watching the film these days likely results in plenty of giggles, as Aniston points out, and little to no scares.
