Jennifer voted best friend for road trip in poll of film fans

JENNIFER Aniston is the perfect friend to share a long-distance road trip with, according to film fans.

The actress, who shot to fame as Rachel Green in US sitcom Friends, picked up 13.5pc of the votes in a poll.

She was followed by Simon Pegg who starred alongside Nick Frost in the alien road trip movie Paul.

The Spaced star got 10pc of the vote in the poll of more than 1,000 people carried out to mark the start of Sky Movies HD Road Trip Movie Season.

Dumb And Dumber funnyman Jim Carrey was third with 8.5pc of votes.

Jade Tan, Sky Movies scheduling manager, said: "It's clear that comedy is the best policy for a road trip partner, and Jennifer Aniston, Simon Pegg and Jim Carrey most certainly have it covered.

"Whether they're on the run, on a buddy trip or a wild adventure, all of these names would definitely deliver a trip to remember.

"The Road Trip Movie season on Sky Movies is the next best thing if they're not available in person."
