Jason Sudeikis: Jennifer Aniston “should be so lucky” to date me


Oh, snap! Jason Sudeikis has a little interview in the new issue of GQ Magazine, and when he’s asked about those rumors (a few months ago) that he was dating Jennifer Aniston, he replies “She should be so lucky.” Just joking around? Or is there some sort of dirt? I have no idea. Maybe he just has his eye on keeping everything low-key with January Jones. Here’s more from GQ:

Occupation: SNL player

Age: 34

Credits: Five seasons (and counting) on Saturday Night Live; comic relief in this month’s Going the Distance, with Drew Barrymore; voices the hipster Holt Richter on The Cleveland Show

Summer plans: Filming Horrible Bosses with Jennifer Aniston

On rumors he’s dating Aniston: A pause, followed by laughter. “She should be so lucky.”

Strangest SNL moment: “Hearing Don Pardo say your name.”

Comedy role models: “When I’m doing something funny, in that moment I sometimes think, I’ve ripped off either Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, or Ellen DeGeneres.”

On Ellen DeGeneres: “I’m dead serious—she’s my Justin Timberlake. I had a crush on her. Still do.”

Growing a mustache for Going the Distance: “The mustache draws a line in the sand. I’d walk by women who would dart their eyes away immediately. Depending on what neighborhood you’re in, some guys’ eyes would linger.”

Celebrity trivia, part 1: He and Paul Rudd went to the same high school in Kansas.

Celebrity trivia, part 2: His uncle is George Wendt, a.k.a. Norm from Cheers.

Best advice from his uncle: “Get on one of the best sitcoms ever and then ride it out.”

What’s never not funny: “Farts.”

The more I see or read about this guy, I’m actually thinking he comes across as very cocky. That works on some men, but on Jason Sudeikis? Eh. Yes, he’s cute and talented. But a little humility, maybe?

    Like January Jones is some kind of prize…

  3. bite me says:

    who is this person

  4. denise says:

    Poor Jenny, she can’t catch a break.

  5. truthSF says:

    I find his response hilarious. He’s right in a way, we tend to put hollyweird ppl on such high pedastool? just because they are well known and famous. They can still be needy, clingy and the most boring ppl who would be oh so lucky to date an average person or someone not as famous and rich.

  6. buckley says:

    Not even close to being my fave SNL comic.

  7. jones says:

    He ain’t all that…just cause he got a role on a film, he thinks he’s hot shit now. Whateves.

  8. lisa says:

    He’s right.. he is a catch..cute funny and talented.

    Why people assume he would be lucky to have her(Jennifer) is beyond me. NO he is not a big name..just a guy working and making his mark. How does that make him below her. Another example of women discounting a good man for stupid reasons.

    So yeah.. Jen would be lucky to have him. But mute point anyway.. He is with January NOW..

    And he was joking anyway.. see CUTE GUY who understands that attention is being paid to him because of this association. Nothing cocky about that at all. And again the assumption is he should be humble because someone thought Jennifer Aniston wanted him.. that to me sounds more cocky then anything. He is a good guy. And yep..she should be so lucky.

  9. denise says:

    Jason does a pretty funny impression of George Bush on SNL but I’ll take Andy Samberg over him any day.

  10. meme says:

    not hot snot

  11. Kim says:

    Obviously he was joking interestingly he is the nth man who has made it a point to deny dating Jen- Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, Jason ,dang I’m forgetting one of them

  12. Riley says:

    Arranged pr relationships are lame. Back in the Golden Era, studios seemed to do it with some restraint and class, but publicists today seem so vulgar and inept esp. the crass online comments campaigns

  13. nnn says:

    I think Jennifer Aniston dating twice the likes of super douchebag who said he only dates stupid women and likes napalm, aka John Mayer, has belittled her ‘worth’ in the dating department by sending wrong signs of ‘cheapness’ to other men.
    Now this guy, i don’t even know takes some liberties with her and make it sound like she is too cheap for him.
    And i am not even a jen fan, far from that but it was kinda disrespectful to say those things about any woman. Nobody love evryone, but a real man doesn’t talk like that publicly about a woman

  14. Guest says:

    He’s joking – good grief. There was a piece in the LA Times last week where Jason had said of his character in Bounty Hunter, that he was told he would have to act like he had a crush on Jennifer’s character. His reponse: “That’s cool since in real life I’ve been crushing on Jennifer Aniston for 15 years.” He was similarly complimentary to her when he was on Jimmy Fallon earlier this year.

    And for the record, I think he and Jones are an odd match – so odd, maybe they will work?!

  15. Riley says:

    He’s no John Krasinski and now that I know his uncle is Norm, I am starting to think he looks a lot like him. Oh, and points are moot not mute (sorry but that is a huge pet peeve of mine).

  16. Strawberry says:

    I think he’s adorable, and should get more accolades as Floyd on 30 Rock. Great show, and Tina Fey really knows how to ignite an acting career.
    Too bad she couldn’t save Lindsay..

  17. Schnauzers!!! says:

    I don’t think he’s cute. 🙁 But I think he’s smokescreening.

    I think she (Jen) should have stuck with Kaisers boyfriend Gerry.

  18. lucy2 says:

    The Flower Guy! I loved him on 30 Rock.

  19. LIZ says:

    Calm down people, he was joking.

  20. Cheyenne says:

    He sounds like a straight-up jerk.

    I think nnn is right about John Mayer. No man wants his sloppy seconds.

  21. Juiceinla says:

    If he wasn’t joking, he comes off as a ass. If he was joking, he comes off as an idiot with no perception of how stupid things like that play in print.

  22. Jeri says:

    Sounds like another comedian that is “on” all the time. Doesn’t know that it gets old after a bit.

  23. Janeth says:

    It’s a joke!

  24. buckley says:

    Looks like someone doesn’t know how to handle his newly found 15 minutes…
    btw, I know he’s been working steadily. But just now is he more well known….and dating Jones.

  25. Feebee says:

    I don’t necessary think he was joking but that’s okay because he has a point. Cocky or not he might be a great fun guy to date and since when has Jennifer Aniston been the prize catch? Not for a decade. Or at least since the ocean screaming or whatever the hell that was.

    Jason should be careful to stay on the trim side… the pic with the water brings out the resemblance to his uncle, a spare tire would only enhance that.

  26. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named says:

    he was joking, froth down.

    Liked him on 30 rock, he was funny.

  27. BeeCee says:

    I dislike when people say “Oh poor Jen, girl just can’t get herself a good b/f”

    Did anyone ever think that maybe she’s really not looking for one? Maybe she just doesn’t care that much being single? It’s not that big of a deal, it’s not the end of the world….

    Jason was clearly joking, good on him for making a funny. Plus their going to be filming a movie together so I highly doubt he was dead serious about that comment

  28. Maritza says:

    It’s obvious the guy was joking, he is a comedian that’s what he does for a living.

  29. Ycnan says:

    Ah, he’s a comedian, so he was joking. It was pretty obvious to me as I read this. Why does everyone take every opportunity to down Jennifer Aniston? I don’t get it.

  30. Mistral says:

    I’m pretty sure he was being cheeky. He’s a cute nerd.

  31. Lisa Turtle says:

    Aniston should be so lucky. She wishes she had a boyfriend. Any guy with name recognition will do for her, but she still can’t find one.

  32. Liana says:

    He was joking. Honestly.

  33. Crash2GO2 says:

    Ew. Gross pictures.

  34. mln says:

    Better than the patronizing oh she is a wonderful person that alot of male actors pull when denying a relationship. He was being glib it isn’t an insult….but he may get death threats.

  35. Camille says:

    truthSF: I agree! I am sure that not all of the men in the world think she is that major of a prize either. 😆

  36. jzhz says:

    He may have been joking, but he’s about the most average-looking dude in hollywood.

  37. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Well, I don’t know about real lives, but Floyd’s not a catch, he’s kind of a pile. Yeah, Liz Lemon agreed because she’s a crazed pushover, but who asks an ex-girlfriend to read at his wedding? What a pile.

  38. anneesezz says:

    Oh my God. Haven’t you people ever heard of sarcasm?

  39. snowball says:

    Okay, 90% of us all agree it was sarcasm, a joke. Maybe a little bad taste when you see it in print, but a joke.

    Yeek, January Jones. Wonder if he was the reason for her “walk of shame.” Bobby Flay may have dodged a bullet, I wonder if his wife has let him off the hook if January was involved with this guy.

  40. Majosha says:

    lisa: A point is “moot” not “mute.”

  41. Gigohead says:

    I agree that Jason was joking especially since he was in a picture of her and he probably figured she would see it and get the joke.

    I’m not a fan of his however, I don’t think he’s funny on SNL. SNL isn’t funny to begin with. The only time it was funny was when Betty White was there cause they probably rallied the best writers for Betty.

  42. Abby says:

    I went to high school with his two younger sisters (one of whom is now a nun!). He does the Christmas tree lighting ceremony when he’s home for the holidays in KC. :)It’s cute. And he’s definitely joking, come on.

  43. The Hamm is My Dream Man says:

    It was really clear that he was joking. He has that sort of cheeky style of humor-slightly jerk-like but nothing truly rude or obnoxious.

    Unlike calling someone “sloppy seconds”. That’s just plain gross.

    And pedastool just made me laugh. People in Hollywood deserve to be on pedastools, certainly not pedestals 😉

  44. Liana says:

    lisa: A point is “moot” not “mute.”

    “no no, a moo point… like a cows opinion, doesn’t matter… it’s moo.” (Joey from “Friends”)

  45. chartreuseoak says:

    Does anyone actually think him and January Jones is for real? I bet its a PR thing to make people forget about her drunk driving and possible affair with Bobby Flay.

  46. Majosha says:

    @Liana: LOL! I stand corrected.

  47. Dan says:

    he sounds like a dick, Aniston really IS lucky shes not with him!
