Did Brad Pitt really convince Jennifer Aniston to take the role on her upcoming TV series? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, but Gossip Cop exclusively has the truth.

It was announced last month that the actress will be joining Reese Witherspoon for a new TV series surrounding the New York morning show scene, marking her first recurring TV role since “Friends” ended in 2004. An article in the latest issue of Life & Style now claims Aniston needed some convincing to return to the small screen, so she turned to her ex-husband for advice.

A supposed “source” tells the magazine the actress sent Pitt a copy of the pilot script, and he “strongly encouraged her to take the role.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “He thought the script was absolutely hilarious. Brad reminded Jen that TV has been attracting Hollywood’s best talent lately. He advised her to both produce and star in the show.” The repeatedly discredited magazine then goes on to speculate the actor could appear on the series in a guest role.

But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Aniston, who exclusively assures us the actress didn’t consult with Pitt before signing on for the upcoming series, and the tabloid’s report is “completely false.” The actress isn’t turning to her ex-husband for career guidance, and the claim otherwise is simply fabricated. Of course, we’ve repeatedly called out Life & Style for publishing bogus stories about the exes, so this latest one comes as no surprise.

Gossip Cop recently busted the magazine for falsely claiming Aniston has “vowed to start over” with Pitt. Shortly before that phony article, we debunked the publication’s report about Pitt making amends to Aniston for the pain he caused in their marriage. This latest story arbitrarily linking the ex-spouses, who’ve been divorced for more than a decade, is similarly untrue.
