GREENWICH, Conn. – Greenwich residents near shooting locations of Jennifer Aniston's latest film are being paid up to $300 to stay away from the set because of paparazzi concerns, according to a Business Insider article .

Aniston is in town shooting a yet-to-be-titled film based on "The Switch" by crime novelist Elmore Leonard.

She has been tailed by her usual contingent of paparazzi, but residents have reportedly been in on the act as well. According to the article, paparazzi paid off a local resident to get shots of Jennifer on the set near the resident's house.

In response, the production company is now paying some residents up to $300 to stay away from the shooting area for the day. A studio official was quoted in the article saying that "inconvenience fees are common practice in the industry."

The shoot shut down Hamilton Avenue back on Feb. 11 , turning the Two Door Restaurant into a 1970's Detroit bar.

In addition to Aniston, the film also stars John Hawkes ("The Sessions"), Mos Def ("The Italian Job"), Tim Robbins ("The Shawshank Redemption"), Isla Fisher ("Wedding Crashers") and Will Forte ("Saturday Night Live").
