Jennifer Aniston has been named Hollywood's hottest Scream Queen after her performance in the 1993 movie Leprechaun when she is chased by an evil little green man from Ireland who has somehow ended up locked in a basement in L.A.
After he is unwittingly released by Aniston's family he goes on to wreak carnage all over. He bites off a policeman's head among other things and breaks legs with hammers. He tests Aniston's lung capacity to its fullest.
It was one of Aniston's first roles and before she was made famous in “Friends.” Her screaming fit reaches its height when she goes to a local hospital and finds herself pursued by the leprechaun who strangely enough is in a wheelchair.
Luckily she discovers that a four leaf clover acts like a cross for Dracula and she is able to fight off the evil little man – thank goodness!
Aniston has rarely if ever referred to her role in the movie which became a cult classic but hardly fitted with her later image as the girl next door and romantic lead.
Also 'honored' was Irish American actress Lara Flynn Boyle for her lung busting capacity in the movie Poltergeist 3.
