Jennifer Anniston said she really considered quitting acting because of one particularly exhausting role. She’s a Hollywood icon popularly known for playing Rachel Green in ‘Friends’ and most recently, Alex Levy in ‘The Morning show’. Despite her huge accomplishments in the entertainment industry, the 51 year old was ready to hit the road.
During an interview on the Smartless podcast– hosted by fellow actors Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett– Jennifer was quizzed about whether she ever questioned her profession in the past, to which she replied : ‘I would have to say the last two years that[quitting] has crossed my mind, which it never did before.’
Jen didn’t disclose that role made her rethink her career path, but she did clarify that it was before her current project, The Morning Show- alongside Reese Witherspoon. She said it was an ‘unprepared project’ adding that ‘it sucked the life out of me’ and left her thinking : ‘I don’t know if this is what interests me.’
So what definitely interests the star? Well, on the same interview, Jen was asked what she would do if she stepped down from acting and she responded without hesitation: ‘Interior design,’ she said . ‘I love it. It’s my happy place. It’s really a happy place for me,’ she added.
Can you imagine a world without the great Jennifer Anniston though?
