Jennifer Aniston did something awesome for the maître d' at one of Hollywood's hottest spots: She got him a role in her new movie.
Aniston snagged the role for her favorite maître d', Dmitri Dmitrov, the host at Sunset Tower Hotel's Tower Bar in West Hollywood, in her upcoming flick, "Squirrels to the Nuts," E! News reported. He probably won't have difficulty getting into character because he is playing the part of -- you guessed it -- a maître d'.
The 44-year-old actress apparently wanted Dmitrov and only Dmitrov for the role, according to E!. So she got him flown out to New York for three days of filming.
Dmitrov isn't an unknown Aniston picked out of obscurity. For almost eight years he has been at Tower Bar, which boasts regular diners like Anderson Cooper, Sean Penn, Johnny Depp and the former "Friends" star. He is beloved for his charm and tight-lipped loyalty to Hollywood's rich and famous.
“He creates this little pocket of safety,” Aniston told The New York Times in 2011, “a haven where you know you’re not getting sold out by the waiter, a patron or the valet guy.”
Dmitrov is happy to oblige.
“The ultimate is when I please somebody like Sean Penn or Johnny Depp, Nancy Reagan or Betsy Bloomingdale,” Dmitrov, who says he reads The Hollywood Reporter and Variety "like a bible," told the Times. “I am student of these people. I am deep in their achievements because, at the end of the day, it’s not about me.”
Peter Bogdanovich's "Squirrels to the Nuts", co-starring Aniston, Owen Wilson and Olivia Wilde, is about a married Broadway director who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress and decides to help her launch her career. It is set to hit theaters in 2014.
