Jennifer isn’t letting her latest film flop bother her — she knows The Switch‘s poor reviews will be forgotten by the time the film her latest film, Horrible Bosses, comes out next July!

Poor Jennifer Aniston hasn’t had the best box office luck lately. Because her latest flick, The Switch, pulled in a paltry $8.1 million over the weekend, she’s now taking heat for playing the same character in lame movies over and over again. But is Jen concerned that her place on the A-list is in jeopardy?

The answer: nope!  “Jen and Jason Bateman [both co-star in The Switch AND Horrible Bosses] aren’t showing any scars from their box office bomb. They are not wearing it on their shoulders, they’re move-forward kind of people,” an on-set insider tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “It was back to business on-set as usual Monday morning, they aren’t even mentioning it.”

Continues the source, “Producers and directors talked about it briefly – not in front of Jen and Jason, of course – but are confident that The Switch isn’t going to have any direct effects on their film. The Switch is being treated like a bump in the road and will be forgotten by the time Horrible Bosses reaches theaters [on July 29, 2011].”

From the sound of it, the two films are as different as chalk and cheese; both co-star Jen and Jason and both are considered to be ‘comedies’ – but the similarities end there. In The Switch, Jen plays Kassie Larson, a woman who opts for artificial insemination when she’s ready for a baby but has no man. In Horrible Bosses – a dark comedy – she plays Dr. Julia Harris, one of three ‘horrible bosses’ that frustrated pals Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman and Charlie Day are trying to murder. The flick is even R-rated…hallelujah!

If Bosses doesn’t do as well as planned, at least we should give Jen, 41, points for trying something new; Bosses doesn’t sound like her typical bland romantic comedy fare. If THAT doesn’t work out, she also has her new directing career to fall back on! As we told you yesterday, she’ll be making her directorial debut with the 2011 film Counter-Clockwise, about a psychologist who tries to reverse the aging process by making her patients believe they’re younger.

Jen, we like your attitude! After all, as Scarlett O’Hara once said, “tomorrow is another day!”

Why do you keep posting this garbage. You have no credibility any more. Jennifer has already finished her filming on Horrible Bosses. Calm down. Your children need a clam mother. Dear Lord.

You need to fire your sources Jennifer herself said she finished her part of the movie days ago.

Agreed! Besides, why on earth would producers on Bosses be discussing the non-flop of The Switch (a small movie that made half its production budget opening weekend and has nothing in common with Bosses except for 2 of its stars)? Complete lies as usual!

Bull, Bull and more BULL. If it had such a “small budget” why won’t the producers MAKE IT PUBLIC? On Box office mojo, it’s the ONLY current-run film where the budget is concealed. If YOU know the budget, then please LINK to it!! Also, if it only cost $16 mil, how did it get made? Her people claimed she was paid $8 mil for it (hence her spot on Forbes w/a total of $27) If she got $8, how did the REST of the cast, crew and execs get paid out of only a remaining EIGHT? It had TWO directiors ($2 mil right there) and three other stars (Bateman $2-4 mil), Goldblum $1-2 mil and Lewis _?_). How were the crew of NY UNION workers, the sets, the lighting, the film stock, the costumes, the hundreds of other cast members, craft services– EVERYTHING — get paid? No one who can count believes your crap. Besides, Back-up Plan cost $35mil. Are you saying JENNIFER LOPEZ is a HIGHER PAID STAR than Aniston? Well, ARE YOU?????? LOL!!! Or are you saying she LIED abour being paid $8 mil for this FLOP? Which is it, because you can’t have it both ways. I love it when Huvane’s paid staffers get caught up in their lies when trying to spin her unabashed FAILURE!

This is TRUE. It’s Aniston’s PR spin at work again. Nothing is ever her fault. Suddenly this movie is nothing, it’s a small indie film, it’s Jason Bateman’s film, it cost nothing to make, it’s doing GREAT!, etc. Can you smell the desperation to put a positive spin on it? Ridiculous. The truth is that Aniston can’t open a movie by herself, she’s a terrible actress who does the same Rachel character, she produced the movie herself so she created the film, the movie cost a lot more than they are saying it did, and she is trying to cover up the fact that she’s an overhyped FRAUD. And, where’s her apology or acknowledgment that she said the “R” word? I guess someone is missing a sensitivity chip? She’s no sweetheart like she pretends to be. It’s obvious the woman only cares about one thing and one thing only==HERSELF.
