Jennifer Aniston is, allegedly, jealous of her lookalike and fellow actress Vera Farmiga after the latter was cast in Sopranos.
According to National Enquirer, Jennifer Aniston auditioned for the same role, but it was Farmiga that was chosen by the producers and the directors.
“Jen and Vera have been competitive for years and this defeat is the latest flare-up,” the source said.

On top of this, Aniston and Farmiga also faced some issues in their relationship after the latter was cast in The Departed, which was produced by Aniston’s ex-husband, Brad Pitt.
However, a source close to the Friends star denied that there’s a rift between Aniston and Farmiga.
“It was a project she and Brad were both involved in before he ran off with Angelina Jolie. Seeing Vera cast in the leading female role rubbed her the wrong way. That was a role Jen really wanted and spent a lot of time talking to George about,” the source said.

And now that The Sopranos sequel is in the works, the source is insisting that Aniston couldn’t help but revisit her ill feelings towards Farmiga.
“She would have loved to be part of the prequel because they were so close and she felt personally connected to it, but it’s no stretch to say these two won’t be rubbing elbows anytime soon,” the source said.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. There is no proof that Jennifer Aniston and Farmiga ever had a feud with each other.
There is also no indication that Aniston became upset with the actress after she was cast in The Sopranos and not her.
Meanwhile, Aniston also made headlines this week after a new teaser for the upcoming Friends reunion was released. The upcoming episode for the show will air on May 27.
The Friends reunion will feature all the main cast members from the 90s, namely Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, and Matthew Perry.
