Has Rachel Green Hurt Jennifer Aniston?

By the look on Jennifer Aniston’s face in the bottom right hand photo, she sure looks pained to be photographed with Courtney Cox.

Jennifer Aniston is convinced her success as Rachel Green in hit sitcom Friends has hampered her movie career. The star was thrilled to find fame with the hit series but admits after 10 years of TV stardom, she is struggling to distance her self from the character – despite the show having ended over two years ago.

And she is wildly grateful to Nicole Holofcener, the director of her new film Friends With Money, for giving her the chance to prove her onscreen diversity.

Speaking to British film magazine Hotdog, Aniston says, “Unfortunately there are re-runs everywhere. Fortunately, we have directors like Nicole in the world who don’t give a s**t! That baggage didn’t stop her seeing me as an actor.”

The latest casting rumor making the rounds is that Jennifer may be teaming up on screen with another Brad Pitt ex. Gossipmonkey is reporting that Jennifer and Gwyneth Paltrow are planning to team up for a film project. The actresses are in discussions to co-star in a thriller, with Aniston playing the part of the villain.
