Jennifer Aniston is often rumored to be pregnant, but that’s not why she’s being associated with discussions of moms right now. The actress is set to star in a comedy called Mean Moms, which will be directed by Sean Anders, according to Variety.
Anders, known for succeeding as the director of Horrible Bosses 2, joins the New Line project, which already has Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot, and Jill Messick on board. The script for Mean Moms, as well as the 2004 comedy Mean Girls, are both based on Rosalind Wiseman’s parenting guides.
Mean Moms tells the story of a mother with two children. Her marriage and life are positive until she leaves her small town life for an elite suburban neighborhood. Behold, it’s time to discover just how competitive parents can be.
Jennifer previously worked with Anders on Horrible Bosses 2, and he wrote We’re the Millers and Hot Tub Time Machine.
However, Aniston isn’t necessarily a given for Mean Moms, according to Deadline.
The film has a variety of roles, because the book on which it’s based is called Queen Bee Moms And King Pin Dads: Dealing With The Parents, Teachers, Coaches, And Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future; in contrast, Mean Girls took its plot from Queen Bees And Wannabes.
It depends on the finished script and whether something more appealing to the actress comes up for this summer, said sources on her side.
And if she does, is it possible that Brad Pitt might play her husband? Aniston emphasizes that she wishes her ex-husband all the best, according to the Daily Mail.
“Nobody did anything wrong,” she declared. “But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things [happen].”
In addition, as the Inquisitr reported, Aniston is busy with her role as co-owner of the Living Proof line of hair products, with which her own hairstylist and pal Chris McMillan is helping.
Aware that many women beg their hairstylists for Jennifer’s hair, she now is experimenting with how Living Proof products can help women by using her pals like Courteney Cox and her yoga instructor Mandy Ingber as guinea pigs.
“Chris and I usually get samples like six months before so we get to try it out and see how it lasts over time and then give feedback for it,” she revealed. “It’s so much fun; it really is a wonderful thing to be a part of.”
Aniston revealed that her favorite guinea pigs are Courtney and Mandy, who trained Jennifer to use yoga for balance and flexibility.
“They allow me to sort of use their hair, they’re like Barbie dolls,” she joked.
