Jennifer Aniston Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston was paid about $5 milllion to star in the latest global advertising campaign by Dubai airline Emirates, a senior executive has revealed.

Chris Galanto, Emirates senior vice president of advertising, said the cost of hiring the actress for the sequel on board its A380 aircraft was similar to the first advert last year, which was part of a larger $20 million campaign.

In the latest advert, directed by industry veteran and Oscar-nominee Bryan Buckley, Aniston emerges from the onboard shower on the superjumbo only to find Cooper, a feisty young boy, playing in her private suite in the Emirates First Class cabin.

The two strike up a conversation and in Economy Class, Cooper is finally reunited with his surprised parents where Jennifer chooses to remain and enjoy Emirates’ ICE inflight entertainment system with Cooper. The ad ends with Cooper’s mother relaxing in Jennifer’s private suite, having exchanged places with the Hollywood star. More info
