Jason Sudeikis has joked he's ''not allowed'' to make movies without Jennifer Aniston.

The 39-year-old actor has starred alongside the 'Friends' actress in three movies in as many years - 'Horrible Bosses', 'We're The Millers' and currently 'Horrible Bosses 2' - and he's joked it's because he's been banned from working with anyone else.

Sudeikis said: ''I'm not allowed to do a movie without her. It's actually the fourth movie. We met in 2009 when I played a small character pining for her in a movie she did with Gerard Butler ['The Bounty Hunter'].''

The 'Hall Pass' star also spoke about the way in which 'Horrible Bosses 2' personifies a heightened version of reality and insisted he's not interested in what critics have to say.

He explained: ''Each boss personifies a different element, whether we're being put on our heel's due to a woman's frank sexuality or Jamie Foxx's character and the way he deals with race...

''While some people may just write it off as dumb, crude humour ... I think they are maybe in a position of criticising films because of a lack of imagination than to see what's actually going on there.''

Meanwhile, Sudeikis will next star alongside Jeremy Irons and William Hurt in Jesse Owens biopic 'Race', which he describes as ''by no means a comedy''.
