Aniston comes to aid of dog in L.A. traffic

Jennifer Aniston had to contend with a misbehaving dog in her hit movie, “Marley & Me,” but that didn’t stop the actress from coming to the aid of a loose pooch on the streets of Los Angeles recently.

Access Hollywood caught up with the actress at the premiere of her new romantic comedy, “He’s Just Not That Into You,” at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles on Monday night. She explained her unexpected connection to the dog she saved.

“Tell me about the dog that you rescued?” Access’s Shaun Robinson asked Aniston on the red carpet.

“It’s a husky ... gorgeous,” Aniston said of the dog she found on the streets of Los Angeles last week.

But the dog she found wasn’t just casually roaming the streets. Aniston says he was in a life-threatening situation.

“A dog darted out in the middle of Sunset (Blvd.),” Aniston said. “People didn’t seem like they were stopping.”

Aniston told Access that she got out of her car and, with the help of another woman, approached the dog. At the time the actress had no idea she had a connection to the lost animal.

“The dog that we rescued happened to be Chris McMillan’s,” she explained. McMillan is a celebrity hairdresser who Aniston has worked with before.

McMillan has also styled the hair of Aniston's pal, Courteney Cox, and “Ugly Betty’s” Rebecca Romijn.

“It’s very six degrees, I tell you,” Aniston added.
