Jennifer Aniston says she nearly quit acting after bad film experience ‘sucked the life out of her’

Jennifer Aniston has revealed she nearly quit acting after a bad experience on a film that “sucked the life out of her”.

The Friends star said that the unnamed film project, which she said was made a few years ago, made her consider becoming an interior designer rather than an actor.

She continued: “It was after a job I had completed and I was like, ‘Woah, that sucked the life out of me… I don’t know if this is what interests me’. It was an unprepared project – we’ve all been a part of them – and you always say, ‘Never again, never again, I would never back up into a start date’ ... And the script isn’t ready.”

While Aniston did not name the project in question, she said she filmed it “two years” before her Apple TV+ series The Morning Show, which recently earned her an Emmy nomination.

Aniston did heap praise on a number of recent film projects that she was a part of, including the Adam Sandler Netflix film Murder Mystery, as well as the indie drama Cake. She called the film, which earned her a Golden Globe nod, “creatively fulfilling”.

She did not mention her 2016 film Office Christmas Party, which co-starred Bateman, the 2017 war drama The Yellow Birds (which she called “beautiful” in 2017), the 2018 Netflix comedy Dumplin’ or the 2016 romantic comedy Mother’s Day.
