The Watch star Will Forte has credited Jennifer Aniston with helping him overcome a bad break-up while filming their new comedy in Connecticut.

The stars grew close on the set of the Untitled Elmore Leonard Project and the 30 Rock star reveals he turned to Aniston for support as he struggled to move on from a failed romance.

He tells, "I was going through a breakup at the time and she was so giving and really helped me through it. I cannot say enough good about her. She was just a fantastic person...

"She was a delight to act with as much as a delight to get to know."
