Is Jennifer Aniston taking the big plunge into writing for the screen? According to the National Enquirer, she most definitely is. In fact, the tabloid claims that she’s already produced a screenplay, one she was quite proud of until she had her boyfriend, Justin Theroux, give it a read through. Apparently, he didn’t like it too much, and was a little taken aback by what she produced, especially given the fact that he was supposed to be her partner in the project.
Now, brace yourselves for the following quotes because they don’t, erm, sound — erm — all that natural. So bear with us. An insider for the mag says, “They worked out a story idea and a list of characters, and when Justin went away on a job for a week, Jen was so inspired she just kept on writing — alone! Excited by her work, she thrust the pages at her honey the minute he was back and gushed, ‘I can’t wait for you to read this!… I think it’s really good!’”
The alleged source continues, “After reading the pages, Justin stared stone-faced at his future wife and started mumbling stuff like, ‘Er… it’s… okay, but it needs… it’s not quite, er…!’ Jen got the message loud and clear, shrieking, ‘Are you kidding me? You’re the one who pushed me to do this. I told you I wasn’t a writer!’”
Yikes. What do you make of this story and Jen’s supposed writing career — a flop before it even had a chance to get off the ground? Leave your thoughts in the comments below. However, we’re just going to put this out there . . . . We don’t think Jen’s getting worked up over a screenplay. But who knows, we could be TOTALLY wrong.
