Jennifer Aniston wants to star in a Bollywood-style movie with big musical numbers? That's the claim in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we've learned the truth.
According to the Globe, the actress is eager to show off her singing and dancing skills on the big screen. A supposed source tells the magazine, "Jen's put the word out she wants to rock a fun-filled, stylized Bollywood-type rom-com that'll knock people's socks off."
The alleged insider goes on to say that Aniston is being careful when it comes to choosing a Bollywood project because Brie Larson's 2018 movie, Basmati Blues, flopped at the box office. "Jen, no doubt, will be on high alert to choose a super script," adds the seemingly phony source.
The tabloid's story is simply made-up. Gossip Cop checked in with Aniston's spokesperson, who tells us on the record that the report is fabricated. Despite what the outlet's anonymous and possibly fictitious "source" claims, a rep qualified to speak on the actress's behalf tells us she has no plans to star in a Bollywood-style production.
Of course, the Globe has repeatedly published fiction about the actress's personal life, so it's not too surprising the magazine is making up stories about her career. In March, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Aniston secretly married Brad Pitt in Mexico. The ex-spouses, who aren't back together in any capacity, didn't elope in Mexico.
Back in January, Gossip Cop called out the publication for wrongly reporting that Aniston was adopting a baby girl from a Mexican orphanage. That clearly didn't happen. And last year, the unreliable outlet attempted to create a romance between Aniston and Johnny Depp. The two stars never dated.
It should be mentioned, the tabloids have attached the actress to so many nonexistent films that Gossip Cop dedicated an article to many of the wrong rumors about Aniston's movie career. In the past, various magazines have come up with narratives involving a "Friends" reunion movie, a collaboration with Angelina Jolie, a romantic comedy with Brad Pitt and more imaginary projects.
Oddly enough, this idea of a celebrity starring in a Bollywood film has also cropped up in the tabloids before. Gossip Cop recently busted the Globe's sister publication, the National Enquirer, for claiming Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra were moving to India because the singer was getting offers to star in Bollywood movies. This latest take on the subject is equally bogus.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
