Nervous about interacting with Brad’s ex on the set of their new film ‘The Switch,’ Jen spoke with the director about firing Juliette before filming even began!

It looks like Angelina Jolie isn’t the only partner of Brad Pitt that Jennifer Aniston is determined to avoid — she tried to have new costar and Brad ex Juliette Lewis fired from their new film The Switch! A source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “When Jen heard that Juliette was cast in the movie, she wasn’t happy. In fact, she wanted her fired before the movie even started filming. Jen is one of the producers of the film, so she had a say in who was cast and who wasn’t.”

Eventually the director was able to convince Jen that Juliette was perfect for the part and should stay in the film, and assured the star Juliette would be under strict orders to not speak about Brad.

“It took some convincing, but Jen finally okayed it,” our source told us. “In fact, she turned out to be very cool about it. She went up to Juliette and welcomed her with open arms. They weren’t the best of friends on the set. Nor, will they probably ever see each other again. But Jen was a professional as usual and made Juliette feel comfortable.”

We are glad Jen was able to put aside her initial fears, though we doubt we will ever see her going so far as to star alongside Angie!
