Jen was as shocked as we were by how poorly The Switch performed over the weekend says a source. Here’s her new plan to switch out of her career rut.

Jennifer Aniston has been following the same celluloid formula for years — good hair, cute guy and something that looks a lot like love. But now that her latest film, The Switch, bombed over the weekend – raking in a paltry $8.1 million - she knows it’s time to leave the world of romantic comedies behind and try something new!

“Jen thinks she’s outgrown these types of movies,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com. “They were cute and audiences loved them years ago, but that’s not what they want to see – or, at least, not with Jen. She kind of knew this was coming, but she didn’t expect The Switch to do that badly at the box office.”

Smart cookie that she is, Jen, 41, planned ahead to get herself out of her movie rut. “She prepared herself,” our source says. “That’s why she agreed to take on the role of a nympho dentist in her new movie, Horrible Bosses [which she's shooting now]. Yes, it’s a comedy, but she has a lot of sexual scenes. She’ll definitely be seen in a whole new light.”

Not only is she sexing herself up, but Jen is also ready to tackle directing! “Jen will direct Counter-Clockwise, a drama about a psychologist who conducts an experiment on reversing the aging process by making her patients believe they are younger. And she’ll co-star and direct Goree Girls, a drama/musical — something she’s never done. That film is based on a true story from the 1940s about a group of incarcerated female country-and-western performers,” says the insider adding, “So really, there are options for her.”

We’re happy to see Jen try something new! We haven’t seen her in a worthy role since 2002, when she played a sad discount store clerk who had an depressing affair with stock boy Jake Gyllenhaal in The Good Girl. Silly romantic comedies like The Bounty Hunter, Love Happens, The Break-Up and Rumor Has Itare tired, trite and SAFE. We’re ready to see what else Jennifer can do beneath all that fabulous hair! Aren’t you?

obviously like your website however you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I’ll certainly come back again.

none of the above Jen needs to give the public a break and then come back with something different or even better go back to TV where her strengths lie she just isn’t a movie star

Yes, it does sound like someone in Aniston camp spoke to Bonnie…Shame on you Bonnie for being so easily swayed. Aniston knows exactly what she’s doing. The last three awful movies simply added to her very healthy bank account, and as for changing her MO, well Gorree Girls has been in the works for a couple of years,as have a few of her other In Development ideas – see her page on IMDB.com – everything she does is very carefully planned and PR orchestrated. Her movies in development are not in response to the public’s opinion, she is totally working her own manipulative agenda, all the way to the bank, as usual. As for Huvane, yes he definitely adds to the loathesome & idiotic premise of this so-called girl next door, who appears to have no family (read her mother’s book about Aniston’s selfishness) and no life outside of work. All she did for 10 years was cram her life with Friends and a movie here and there. No time for kids. Now she still does the same stuff, 3 movies a year,no self control with her leading men (remember Vince V. fiasco) & no time for kids.. Apparently she’s considering a surrogate – no time to do it herself or form a meaningful relationship with a man – and heaven forbid she might gain weight – her greatest fear.
No, we will be expected to ooh and aah at her “effort” to make a change in her future movies, and give her a little pat on the back for trying, een if it’s crap. Lord knows, we mustn’t make her cry. She really needs to grow up. And shame on her for being so arrogant as to think a simple apology for her dumb word usage is not required. The best thing she could do is to fire Huvane. That would be a good start.

Does that mean Jen is going to back out of “Wanderlust” which she confirmed on the press junket for her last flop? “Wanderlust” sounds worse than “Did You Hear About The Morgans” which actually had some laughs in it. When is this “switch out of her career rut” going to start? She has finished the Adam Sandler mess and she had another execrable rom-com planned “You Are Here” that Bradley Cooper [who is a terrible actor despite being hot] backed out of after “The Bounty Hunter” flopped.

GMAFB!!!!!!!

So Huvane has time to talk to you about his Hasbeen client’s future career plans, but neither he nor she has time to issue an APOLOGY to the special needs children of America? What a VILE, remorseless, subhuman creature Aniston is revealing herself to be.

Bonnie, do you think we don’t know the “Insider” is Stephen Huvane, the leech who is attached to her like a vulture on a cadaver? We know he has contacted you PERSONALLY to ask you to lay off of her. So tell him NO ONE WILL GO TO SEE HIS HACK CLIENT’s FILM UNTIL SHE APOLOGIZES TO THE SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN SHE HAS HURT. We understand that she thinks the is ABOVE everyone else, so fine, we will remain too far BENEATH her to go to her movie! If this waste of DNA does not apologize before the weekend, the Switch will be LUCKY to make $3 mil. next weekend. There is no greater organized force than angry mothers of special needs children. If she doesn’t apologize, she can kiss what passes for her film career goodbye!

THE BOYCOTT CONTINUES!!!!

I don’t see Horrible Bosses as an improvement. Aniston has NO vision; her best offense is when in doubt get n*aked.

She once said she doesn’t make plans, she just let life happen; nothing gets accomplished like that. That’s her life and that’s her movie career. She talks about what she wants to do, but with no family to speak of, she never finds time to do these things.

Now she’s approaching 42 and thinks it’s a good career move to act like an over sexed teenager? She should name her next movie Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest; the last one would be her. She’s always spewing the same drivel in interviews; I think she talks to fill in the spaces because she never says anything meaningful about her life. Oh, I forgot, she doesn’t have one and her fans will blame Jolie for the rest of their lives lol.

I don’t understand why anyone bothers to interview Aniston. She’s not a nice person, she’s just a deceitful one that only has her career going for her; she’ll hang on to that for dear life until she’s sucked all of the sympathy and goodwill out of her delusional fans. She has no guts. She’d better retain that psychiatrist for 20 MORE years, she’s going to need her. Desperation thy name is Jennifer Aniston.

Retard(ed) seems to fit, although it is a no-class identifier.

My apologies to Ms. Aniston!!!
