Maniston To Step Behind The Lens

| Filed under: Jennifer AnistonFilm Flickers


Maybe this will be good for her. She sure as hell isn't having any luck in front of it!

Whoever is managing Jennifer Aniston's career has learned from the dismal returns from The Bounty Hunter that Jen needs to try a new approach to the biz. Therefore, Maniston has just signed on to direct her first movie!

Take that Angelina Jolie!

Though the project is still in development and no storyline has been released, Jen sounds all but too thrilled to be taking on the task, hoping, like the rest of us, it will bring a much needed spark to her career. When asked about the project, Jen explained:

"After you get enough movies under your belt you sit back and go, 'What's next?' It's getting to a time where creatively I want to turn in a different direction."

Fine by us. It'll be easier to pity you if you crash and burn when we don't have to endure looking at you trying so hard on screen.

    THANK GOD!!!!! I didn't even read the story, just the headline and I like it already. I'm sick of looking at this buttaface.

    Why are you so mean to her Perez?? I don't understand what she did to you and why you are always picking on her when she doesn't deserve it….

    Umm. I'm sure the directing gig has nothing to do with Angie. The more you write about them, the more it seems that YOU haven't gotten over the break-up.

    Perez- why do ya gotta be hatin on her so much? I hear she is actually a really nice person, even though she sued you for showing shots of her tittays.

    shes so beautiful but a TERRIBLE actress. i feel like shes typcast alot..

    your level of hatred for this woman defies logic.

    There is no creativity to her on screen charaters, so I don' know how she thinks she can be creative behind the scenes. Go scrub toilets or something.

  11. 11

    She is GOURGOUS, inside and out!!!

  12. 12

    The sing is if you do only comedies people get tired of it. She should try to do lots of small parts in maybe more dramatics movies and different from what people expect from her so she can gain some credibility as a "serious" actress and have interesting parts due to people being used to see her in different kind of movies instead of always doing the same boring leading role.

    Jen's acting's no longer what it used to be. I thought her latest film the Bounty Hunter was going to be funny but it wasnt, it sucked like hell. Maybe you're right Perez, Jen does need to go behind the cameras since being in front of them isnt doing her any good.

  14. 14

    Another dud for Maniston. $100 million for a film INTERNATIONALLY sux asshole.

  15. 15

    Could she have done "million dollar baby" or the roles that Reese and Hillary have done? I don't know. She seems stuck in one character. She peaked with Friends. "The Good Girl" wasn't bad….would she "go ugly" to play "Monster," which won Charlize an Oscar? or do the horrific things Halle Berry did to win hers? Does she just not get offered these roles? Or does she turn them down? Why doesn't she do a gritty guest spot on one of the CSI shows or a Helen Mirren show?

  16. 16

    She's actually directed before! And The Bounty Hunter was a hit moron!

    Perez … no matter how much you trash her, you won't make your favourite bisexual Angelina Jolie look better. Deal with it.

  19. 19

    Actually Bounty Hunter is at one hundred twelve million dollars and still in the theaters and has even more foreign debuts coming up. "Dismal"? You're a twit, Perez.

  20. 20

    You need to shut your mouth. Jennifer Aniston is an icon and always will be. You're absolutely pathetic for thinking so low of her. This is a woman who had the absolute worst thing happen to her and it happened in front of the entire world. She handled it with class and poise and has continually had a successful career. Her movies are great and she's incredibly talented. How anyone can even look at let alone be a fan of Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie after what they did is beyond me. I will always be a Jennifer Aniston fan 100%. Not to mention, she's friggin gorgeous.

  21. 21

    LOL - oh that's really rich. a dreadful actress is now stepping behind the camera to try to expand her creativity. hey dumbass, try ACTING LESSONS! geez, no wonder Hollywood sucks…

    In all seriousness, I am really curious as to why you hate her so much? I love this site and I'd say i agree with 95% of all the things you say about certain celebs and how they act. But, Jennifer Aniston is a real mystery to me. So she may not be the greatest actress ever. Yes Angelina Jolie is a much better actress. However, if you look at both of their track records, Angelina Jolie is all sorts of crazy. It's not like Aniston walks around thinking she's the bes tactress in the world. She was on a tv show for 10 years. Which happened to be one of the best comedy's of all time. She does funny, stupid films. They may not be the greatest, but sometimes movies like that is really all you need. I love seeing her in films and on the big screen. She's just fun to watch. I really don't get why you don't like. And I'd so love if you posted on your site a real explanation as to what she did to make you hate her as much as you do.

  23. Sane1 says – reply to this


    She's a good actress and way more people enjoy watching her than that other one you seem to deem holy (why I don't know).

  24. 24

    She's amazing! FUNNY and beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Sane1 says – reply to this


    I'd also like a logical explanation of your hatred. Otherwise this bashing is just making you look bad.

  26. @v@ says – reply to this


    Funny, I'm pretty certain I read that Aniston was the top female bang for your buck actress when you compare tickets, sales, and rentals to budget.
    Meow, Mario.

  27. 27

    Why do you rag on Jennifer all of the time?

  28. 28

    perez…why do you hate her so much.

    love brangelina as much as you want, you're entitled to worship those self-important adulterous asshole as much as you want.

    but WTF did Jen ever do to you? i mean besides be more attractive and talented than you? jeez, it must suck to be so hateful all the time…doesn't it get tiring?

    i've enjoyed almost all her movies, even The Bounty…which wasn't that great but was funny and had Gerard Butler's sexy self in it.

    I'm a little perplexed as to why you are still (moronically) labellig her `Maniston' when she is clearly not with John Mayer anymore. She's not a lesbian (as far as I know) and she's certainly not mannish, so what is it? While I'm on the subject, what the fuck is up with the media and all these stupid fucking abreviations such as R-Patz and K Stew or J-Lo and then joining them into some idiotic hybrid of acronyms and abreviations. Half the time I have no idea who the fuck you are talking about. Is it just your way to take them down a few more pegs? Should the world start calling you Pe-On. (Did I get that right?) Should Barack Obama be called Ba-Bama? Are the so-called writers in the media grown up enough to say enough of this nonsense and get back to using people's actual names? J-Chris!

    Mario, let me break this down for you: most people come here for the gossip, not you. If you ever read your posts you'd notice most of us don't even agree with you. Ever. Though you do have some fans, I'll admit. Where you got your pantaloons in a bunch over Jennifer Aniston, well, no one know. She's not broody, she doesn't appear needy, and SHE DOESN'T SLEEP WITH MARRIED MEN. If she did, you'd be all over her like a corn dog. Just because she's 40 & still chooses to "date" does not make her needy, sad, or lonely. It makes her a woman who's dating. Honestly, when was the last time that you heard her say anything about her ex or Angie? Where are all these crying fits you make up? I say it's time to site some sources or STFU.

    Re: topshelfmn – Ahhh, thank you! There in lies the rub! 'Been trying to figure out why he hates this girl so much. So the I guess the bottom line is he can dish it but he can't take it. Talk the Talk, Mario, Walk the Walk. That's what a real man would do, anyone. Gay, straight or purple. Apparently, you don't fit into any of those categories. Thank youco much, Topshelfmn. I honestly couldn't figure out where all his vitriol was coming from. Now I get it. She stood up to the schoolyard bully.

  32. 32

    Her movies Suck Ass!! She really should go back to t.v….

  33. cdv says – reply to this


    You do realize this is coming from the same jackass that said that Avatar was a box office failure. LOL! Mario is just jealous because she fucked Brad Pitt and he didnt

  34. 34

    Pervez, you're a pig and I hope you die a slow and painful death.

  35. 35

    Just asking perez…. how much do you get paid for trying to trash Aniston?? there is no other reasonable excuse apart from jealousy. any other cheater you crucify,,, yet Jolie and Pitt you glorify and raise to level of saint? Get some councelling, or stop taking under the counter cash for being third party abuser. No one trusts your take on Aniston or Jolie. Pitt, well, he's history as far as fan base is concerned.

    Well ,plan A has not worked out for her , so i tis time for plan B.

  40. 40

    Thank God this whore is getting her face hidden. She is so bad at everything and practically ruin all that she touches. Does she know we are so fired up at hating her?!!!! Maniston need to love her mama first and find herself a real man she can't control and quit putting her face out there bc she is not pretty even with all the surgeries and botox!!! Enought of her already!

  41. 41

    Re: jojo123 – You are a retard. Even the movie commentator says this movie is below a negative rating and not worthy of watching. She is a terrible actress and they still overpay her empty brain. What gives…you must be Maniston!

  42. 42

    The bounty hunter had very bad reviews…but yes it made 112 million worldwide so far….not bad considering it cost around 50 million to make. I haven't seen it yet so don't know…but they're are several Aniston movies I like.

  43. 43

    Who is more retard?
    Her, who works hard for a living? or you, who has nothing to do but waist your time posting this stupid comment.

  44. 44

    personally I wouldn't mind if she just stepped OFF
