All those rumors about Jennifer Aniston falling in love with her costar on the set of Wanderlust? True.

“I fell in love with our goat!” the actress told the U.K. show Daybreak about the animal she and boyfriend Justin Theroux worked with in the movie.

In the innuendo-filled scene, Theroux’s character Seth demonstrates how to go about milking the goat.

“When we were doing our screen test, I met that goat,” she said. “I had never milked a goat in my life … I grew up in New York City.”

Two other loves of Aniston’s made it into the film. In rewatching the movie’s trailer, we spied a photo of Aniston with two of her real-life dogs, shepherd mix Dolly and dearly departed Norman.
