This is terrible news! Jen has put her sitcom past behind her – which means she won’t be appearing with best Friend Courteney Cox on Cougar Town!
Are you ready for some bad news, BFFs? Jennifer Aniston is NOT going to be making a small screen comeback as reported!
Sadly, an insider tells us that Jen is dunzo with TV. “Jen wants to stay in movies,” an insider on the set of her new film, Horrible Bosses, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. Although she recently told Extra that she’d “do anything” for BFF Courteney Cox including – when pushed – appear on her show, Cougar Town, the source tells us that isn’t the truth and she was simply being nice for the purpose of the interview.
“There’s been a lot of talk about her appearing on Cougar Town lately, but she says it isn’t going to happen because she’s too busy and wants to stay in film.” Our source hastens to add, “It’s nothing against Courteney at all – she just wants to remove herself from TV.”
But we LOVED Jen as a television actress – especially as Rachel Green on Friends; she was also hilarious as Jack Donaghy’s stalker on 30 Rock. Talk about a HollyBummer!
There’s always a silver lining though – this means that the 41-year-old actress is going to continue to focus on her film career – and is seriously considering joining pal Jason Bateman in the eagerly awaited Arrested Development movie.
“Jason and Jen are always together on set,” the insider tells us. “They always hang out and take meals together – they’re practically best friends at this point. Talk on set has sometimes veered to the Arrested Development movie and how they’d like to work on it together; Jen says it would be fun.”
Jen, who stars with Jason in the upcoming film, The Switch as well as Bosses, also told MTV News, “I love it. I actually think I might have asked [Bateman] … if that was possible. Anything to work with Jason.”
