Jennifer Aniston‘s new movie may be titled ‘Horrible Bosses 2,’ but the actress actually had some pretty great bosses back in the day — and now she’s thanking one in particular for his unconditional support.

During an appearance on The Queen Latifah Show on Monday, Dec. 1, Jennifer, 45, revealed her favorite boss managed her while she worked as a waitress in NYC when she was first starting to act.

“I worked at a restaurant called Jackson Hole… a burger joint. I worked there for about two and a half years. They were so good to me — Kimo, was my boss — and if I got [cast in] a crappy little play, or whatever awesome job I thought I received, he would let me go and do this play for two or three months and they always let me come back. My job was always there,” she recounted to host Queen Latifah, 45.

Then, much to Jennifer’s surprise, Queen Latifah announced her crew had set up cameras at Jackson Hole, where Kimo still works, so Jen could call her former boss to tell him how much she appreciated his constant encouragement!
