Jennifer Aniston has brought her comedic talent and charm to a new advert for Emirates Airline. The actress, who is loved for her romantic comedies and light-hearted films, plays an amusing role in the one-minute video that was released on Monday.

The American beauty is filmed walking around a plane in search of the shower facilities, and ends up asking the cabin crew for directions.

Jennifer Aniston goes in search of a shower in the new Emirates advert

When she's told that there are none on board, Jennifer, who is wearing a dressing gown and slippers, says: "Well I'm gonna look pretty silly dressed like this going to the bar."

"There's no bar here," says one amused cabin crew member. "But we do have hot towels and a bag of peanuts."

"Emirates planes have showers and they have bars," replies the actress, who is a brand ambassador for the Dubai airline company.

"This isn't an Emirates plane ma'am," says another air steward, while he and two other crew members cackle in her face.

The clip then cuts to Jennifer waking up in her luxurious First Class cabin, relieved to find she was just dreaming. "It was such a nightmare," she tells a well-groomed bartender as she waits for her cocktail at the bar. "I was on a plane and it was nothing like this."

"I'm sorry to hear that," says the barman.

"Thank you so much," says Jennifer, before asking, "Is there someone I can talk to about maybe flying this around a bit longer? Just like an hour?"

Last month it was announced that Jennifer would star as the new face of Emirates' global campaign. The 46-year-old, who married her fiancé Justin Theroux in August, was reportedly paid over £3million for the feature.

The 46-year-old was praised for her "professionalism and comedic talent"

"Jennifer Aniston's appeal and effortless connection with a global audience makes her the perfect choice for our campaign," said Boutros Boutros, the airline's divisional senior vice president for corporate communications, marketing and brand.

"As one of the busiest women in Hollywood, Aniston, like many of our customers, enjoys downtime only when she is travelling. At Emirates, we ensure the experience is an exceptional one.

"We couldn't think of anyone better suited for the role and we wrote the script with her in mind. Her professionalism and comedic talent shone on the set and we are very pleased with the outcome."
