Now, after decades in the entertainment biz, the “Horrible Bosses” actress admitted that she thought about “quitting Hollywood.”
In an episode of “Smartless” podcast with hosts Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett, the blonde beauty shared that she hit rock bottom of her career two years ago.
Although she did not drop any names, the award-winning actress then explained that this was before her project with the “The Morning Show” that made her almost quit acting.
“It was after a job I had completed and I was like, ‘Whoa, that was really… that sucked the life out of me. And I don’t know if this is what interests me,'” she mentioned.
She continued as she described it as an “unprepared project” and even cited an incident where the script “wasn’t ready” but was “stuck” with the project for three months.
Jennifer Aniston Behind the Spotlight
Actor turned producer, and director Jason Bateman then advised Aniston to pursue directing instead.
The “We’re the Millers” actress responded that she enjoyed it and “would love to jump into that chair more.”
To recall, the 51-year-old actress has directed three films, including the 2006 short film “Room 10,” and was co-directed by Andrea Buchanan and was inspired by the real-life story of Glamour reader, Colleen Goldrick.
Furthermore, she also worked as a director in the 2011 comedy-drama film “Five,” starring Patricia Clarkson, Rosario Dawson, and Lyndsy Fonseca.
In addition, she also directed a human rights campaign ad titled “Burma: It Can’t Wait,” highlighting the Burmese struggle for human rights, democracy, and liberty.
