It’s hard not to love . While all the Friends stars have carved out , Jennifer Aniston has reached levels of Hollywood stardom thought previously unimaginable for a sitcom actress. The 47-year-old stunner has worked almost non-stop since the late ’80s. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in March 2016, she described her jam-packed career:
“There was a time when I worked and worked and worked. I loved it. I’m trying to be better at [saying ‘no’ now]. I’m a bit of a people pleaser. I’ve got to stop. Some of the movies I’ve made, I bow my head in slight shame over.”
It’s true — Jennifer Aniston has been in just about every kind of movie. From an uncredited extra in the little-known family sci-fi film Mac and Me, to the sick and slightly cliché man-eating Julia Harris in Horrible Bosses 1 and 2. But she’s also proved that she has depth, like in the dark comedy The Good Girl,
Where can we watch Jen Aniston shine next? Here’s a round up of her three upcoming movies:
1. Mrs. Gardner In Storks
In a world where storks have retired from delivering babies and instead bring packages for internet conglomerate Cornerstone.com, little Junior accidentally creates a baby and has to spirit it to a nice human family before his boss finds out. Aniston plays Mrs. Gardner, mama stork to Andy Samberg’s leading boy stork, Junior.
This is Aniston’s first animated film since The Iron Giant back in 1999. The movie is already completed, and there’s talk that it will be part of an entire Stork series.
Release Date: September 23, 2016
2. Carol In Office Christmas Party
Aniston is reuniting with her The Switch and Horrible Bosses co-star Jason Batemen for another work-related comedy, only the party will also include Olivia Munn, Kate McKinnon and TJ Miller. The rating is only PG-13 for this one, so you might even be able to show it at your own office Christmas party.
Release Date: December 9, 2016
3. Maureen Murphy In The Yellow Birds
Based on the novel by Kevin Powers, The Yellow Birds follows the story of young American soldiers Bartle (Alden Ehrenreich) and Murph (Tye Sheridan) during the war in Iraq. As they cope with the traumas they experience, Bartle is plagued by a promise he made to Murphy’s mother (Aniston) before their deployment.
A serious departure from Aniston’s usual comedies, this military drama will undoubtedly allow us to see a different, more complex side of her acting abilities. As of yet, there’s no release date for the film, but we can probably expect it sometime in 2017.
Release Date: 2017
