Angelina Jolie an inspiration for Jennifer Aniston? Life & Style Weekly makes the connection this week wit the latest Jen flick noting, “Car chases, boat fights, bloody brawls. Nope, these arenâ€™t stunts from an Angelina Jolie action flick but from Jennifer Anistonâ€™s upcoming film, Bounty Hunter.”
Is it action Jen? Will she show off that hard body on the big screen? The magazine adds: “Whatâ€™s more, the movie, which co-stars 300 hottie Gerard Butler and starts filming in NYC in late June, has uncanny similarities to Mr. & Mrs. Smith â€” during which Angelina infamously met Jenâ€™s then-husband, Brad Pitt. â€œJen and Gerard play a divorced couple named Cass and Milo,â€ a Jen insider explained to the magazine.
â€œTheyâ€™re together in almost every scene, bantering and belittling each other as the elaborate action caper unfolds.â€ The item claims that Jen realizes it sounds familiar. â€œShe knows people are going to say sheâ€™s copying Angelina, and she doesnâ€™t care,â€ says the insider.
As far as Jen is concerned, sheâ€™s a much better actress than Angelina â€” and sheâ€™s going to prove it.â€ And perhaps because Jen, 40, knows all too well that good chemistry can make or break a flick like this, the insider says she was careful when choosing her co-star.
â€œWhen the script came her way, she said she would do it only if she could find the right leading man,â€ says the insider. â€œShe found that guy in Gerard.â€
