The Big Apple plays a big part in new movie "The Bounty" which stars Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler.

The pair - who have been romantically linked for the past several months - have been spotted filming in Harlem, the Bronx and Queens, and have even taken a couple of day trips further afield to Long Island and Atlantic City in New Jersey.

Butler plays a bounty-hunter named Milo who finds out his next job is his ex-wife, Cassidy, played by Aniston.

The 39-year-old says he's seriously impressed with his leading lady and says he loves working with her. "She is one classy lady,” he said. "Every day I go to work with her, I'm always surprised about how cool, easy and down to earth and real she is."

Aniston is so cool that she laughed along with the fans on the set when Butler swooped her up and set her down in the trunk of a car.

The lady-in-the-trunk may or may not make it into the movie but it's clear the pair had great fun filming it.
