Turns out, if you star in a movie involving artificial insemination, late-night hosts can’t help but ask about sperm.
Jennifer Aniston was subjected to such seminal banter during her appearance Thursday on ‘The Tonight Show.’
Jay Leno dutifully asked about her new movie ‘The Switch,’ in which she costars with Jason Bateman as a woman who decides to have a baby using a donor.
Then Leno asked the 41-year-old unlucky-in-love star if she’d ever consider going that route herself.
“Jeez, that question’s never been asked to me,” Aniston replied with only thinly veiled sarcasm, then pleaded total ignorance of the process. “You go to the bank and you have a card…I honestly don’t know exactly.”
Leno then attempted a limp joke about deposits in the sperm bank and mercifully moved on.

The topic, er, arose near the end of a segment, which also included talk of Aniston’s summer job as a very bad bike messenger in New York when she was 18; the time she spent a year in Greece as a kid so her dad could attend medical school (until U.S. soaps came calling); and a plug for her new perfume, the box for which features her topless on a beach in Mexico. The perfume is currently only available in Harrod’s in the UK and online (but her chest is covered, so no rush).
