Hotel Worker Compliments Jennifer Aniston -- And Gets Fired
Terry Siegler was shuttling guests at the Encantado Resort, where Aniston was staying during a shoot for her new film, "We're the Millers." The guests had allegedly just spotted Aniston at the hotel spa, and asked Siegler if he'd seen her too. He said yes, and offered up some kind words about the famous lovelorn, now love-struck, actress.
Back at the hotel, the guests discussed this conversation, Siegler told TMZ, and were overheard by a member of Aniston's entourage. The actress' buddy reportedly informed hotel management, which then fired Siegler from his $30,000-a-year job for violating a celebrity guest's privacy.
Most businesses that commonly see high-profile guests have confidentiality agreements for their workers. In April, a Virgin Atlantic employee resigned following allegations that she routinely tipped off the booking details of the airline's celebrity clientele to paparazzi. But Siegler didn't dish on the star to a tabloid -- he was simply responding to a question from a guest.
"They brought [Jennifer] up first...." he told TMZ. "Was I supposed to deny it?"
Siegler reportedly is considering a wrongful termination suit.
