World Football: Jennifer Aniston Becomes a Watford Fan, Follows Mila Kunis

Watford may be stuck in the second level of English football, but they are already in the Premier League when it comes to celebrity fans, after Jennifer Aniston adopted the Hornets as her new football club.

The Friends actress, 44, was being interviewed by BBC Radio 1's Chris Stark about her new film, We're The Millers.

Stark gave her a shirt with her name and squad number on the back, and Aniston vowed to wear it.

Earlier this year, Stark's awkward interview with Mila Kunis went viral when Kunis broke off talking about her film to discuss going to the pub with his mates, and watching Watford at their home ground, Vicarage Road.

Kunis became a celebrity fan of the club—and Stark resolved not to miss out on the chance to continue recruiting when he caught up with Aniston.

Stark: When I interviewed Mila Kunis I didn't have a Watford shirt to hand and I will always regret that.

Aniston: Do you want me to give it to her?

Stark: No, I've got your name on the back... [...] They're only a small club, they're in the Championship, but they'll love that I've given you that.

Aniston: I think that's really special and you know what? Small—you can only go up from there, right? And get bigger and bigger, and better and better.

All of which will doubtless be great news for Watford and their manager, Gianfranco Zola.

The Hornets were third in the Championship last season, missing out on promotion by a whisker on the final day—and then again in the playoff final when Crystal Palace triumphed.

They are among the favourites to go up this season, however, and have begun with two consecutive wins.
