Jennifer Aniston may be America’s sweetheart, but she admits she loved getting down and dirty – really dirty – in Horrible Bosses 2.

“She’s a hard one to let go of,” Aniston told reporters Monday about reprising her role as Julia, the sex-obsessed, naughty-mouthed dentist who finds herself in a sexual addiction support group in the new comedy that opens Nov. 26. “I didn’t get enough of her! It was too quick. It was just like a little In-N-Out Burger.”

Aniston, 45 – who reunited three years later with costars Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jamie Foxx for the sequel – said she even found a certain comfort zone with her character’s salty language and love of the double entendre.

“I find it extremely entertaining the way she speaks,” says Aniston. “I don’t really think that to her she’s saying anything inappropriate. For her it’s describing the ingredients to a wonderful soufflé, or ‘What are we going to be doing this weekend?’ ”

However, the actress, who is garnering Oscar buzz for her role in Cake, balked at one line that was so filthy she couldn’t bring herself to deliver it.

“It was the one thing I didn’t say! Imagine how bad it must’ve been if I had said, ‘I can’t say it’,” she told reporters. “Either it was so bad, or I just really didn’t understand it, which was probably the case.”

Another line Aniston didn’t say? “I do.”

“I haven’t read this week what’s happening with us,” Aniston joked with Extra when asked if she and fiancé Justin Theroux had eloped. “I have to look into it.”
