Jennifer Aniston has one gripe about her upcoming Ben Affleck romantic comedy.
She revealed: “I wish it was She’s Just Not That Into You! Unfortunately, it’s He’s Just Not That Into You. The other would be more empowering.”
The actress, who also stars in the comedy Marley & Me (out Dec. 25) with Owen Wilson, admitted she’s surprised she’s even in movies at all, saying: “I thought I’d never get movies.”
Landing her role on the NBC sitcom (she played the spoiled Rachel Green) was “the first time I felt like part of the cool kids,” she says. (She had suffered a string on small screen duds – including a role as the bratty sister on the TV version of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which lasted almost a season.)
Jennifer Aniston says she still watches Friends re-runs on TV , adding: “There are times I don’t even remember that particular show. This is horrible to say, but there are times when I laugh my rear end off. And I get in debates with people who are over and say, ‘Friends’ is not my thing.’ Excuse you!”
