Jennifer Aniston set to star in cougar-type film “Pumas”; nips out on set

fp_3340322_aniston_jennifer
Remember how Courteney Cox was developing a sitcom called “Cougar Town”? That series is going to debut this fall, but there might be a problem! It’s looks like Courteney’s BFF Jennifer Aniston took the same premise, changed the locale, and turned the whole thing into a movie. The film is called Pumas, and according to Variety (via US Weekly), Jennifer has just signed on to play a “thirty something woman” who takes “a French skiing vacation” that challenges her “romantic expectations”. It’s also a buddy comedy, I think, because Aniston’s character will have a friend who’s nailing younger guys too. So it’s like Thelma and Louise, only set in a ski chalet with two Botoxed broads nailing young guys, and hopefully no one drives off a cliff at the end.

Jennifer Aniston is on the prowl for younger men … in an upcoming romantic comedy, that is. According to Variety, the actress, 40, has signed to headline Pumas, which centers on two thirty something women who make a habit of romancing younger men. The ladies “take a French skiing vacation that challenges their romantic expectations,” the trade reports.

(Interestingly, Aniston’s real-life BFF, Courteney Cox, will play an older woman looking for a younger man in the fall ABC sitcom, Cougar Town.)

Aniston first mentioned the project in December’s Vogue — the same issue where she said comments Angelina Jolie made about Brad Pitt were “uncool” — describing it as a “female Wedding Crashers.”

“It is so a comment on the sexual double standard, and what’s been ironic is how hard it’s been to get this movie made… Studios want it, but they are afraid of Middle America,” Aniston later told January’s GQ. “They’d want to change it; they’re saying, ‘Oh, you can’t do that, people just can’t imagine you…”

Aniston told GQ that “there are too many movies out there that don’t empower women, movies in which their only way of being happy is finding a man. And you know, that’s not my favorite theme.”

Pumas is the latest project for Aniston. She recently wrapped the comedy The Baster with Jason Bateman and is currently shooting The Bounty Hunter in NYC with Gerard Butler.

How would a romantic comedy called Pumas be a “empowering” for Jennifer specifically or for women in general? It’s not a hard-hitting documentary on women in their forties who fall for younger men, it’s a romantic comedy. I wonder if Jennifer is going to be a producer on this as well – if she is, she’ll get a say on the casting. What hot young guys will she cast as her puma’s victims? Bradley Cooper, perchance?

Picture note by Celebitchy: Jennifer Aniston is shown on set today with her cute dog, Norman. She looks cold! I changed the title of the post for Kaiser to add the fact that she’s nipping out. We may as well mention is as there are going to be plenty of other sites that are covering it today. This never happens to me. Is it the bras I wear? Credit: Fame Pictures

    I like the wavy hair better than the flat-iron stuff, but I feel like my mother when I look at pics of Aniston: “Get. Your. Hair. Out. Of. Your. Face.”

  2. Lem says:

    her nips are always out (that & the hair are why she’s famous)

    nope doesn’t sound empowering.
    female wedding crahsers?

  3. tony says:

    Sounds like another crappy movie.

  4. karen says:

    Oh God, the nip slip is the oldest trick in the desperate book. I can almost hear her now: “Enough with Michael Jackson! LOOK at ME!”

    The movie sounds 3 years too late. She’s not a dirty thirty yr. old puma anymore, she’s a full-fledged 40 yr. old cougar. Seriously.

  5. Eka Allen says:

    the hard nips are signature. she apparently is always cold even walking in the sun ms aniston finds a way to be cold. personally i think its disgusting. she might as well take off her top

  6. WendyBird says:

    I bet the dog is a better actor than she is. Its clean and well-groomed at least.

    This has-been needs to retire and move away. Somewhere far, far away.

  7. kathrine says:

    looks like an amazing movie!!! she’s a Cougar in real life too!!! loooove her…and windybird.get a life and grow up

  8. Hieronymus Grex says:

    Okay I was tired of pumas, cougars, tigers and all the other ‘clever’ slang people have invented for dusty old cooters who date younger men months ago. Time to move along, people.

  9. saintdevil says:

    Dusty old what?
    I am 32, frequently get asked for my ID when I want to buy drinks or enter a club and I heartily resent that it’s apparently okay for old farts like Clooney to date much younger women but that females over 30 are considered over the hill.

    IMHO Aniston is pretty dull but most 20-somethings would kill for her bod.

  10. elisabetta says:

    Karen: hahahahahaha full-fledged 40 yr. old cougar.
    I wonder why she thinks Middle America is incapable of seeing her as a “puma”… John Mayer and Bradley Cooper are both 10 years younger…

    Eka Allen: Dude, why do you care if her nips are out? Stop being a prude and get over it! Don’t look at the pictures if they both you so much.

  11. Canuck says:

    French ski trip? Oh pleassssse, let them cast that French “naked neighbor” Gilles Marini from the Sex in the City film/Dancing with the Stars.

  12. Beth says:

    Who does she think she’s fooling?Jennifer buys pasties that has nipples on them. That’s why in 90 degree weather you can see them.

  13. Eka Allen says:

    @elisabetta, I’m not being a prude. The nipples are just gross. its the same as a guy walking down the street with a freaking hard on i will say it again disgusting.

    @ beth are u serious. thats so funny

  14. Cheyenne says:

    I think Beth is right. You can almost see the outline of the pasties through the T-shirt.

  15. CeeJay says:

    Yep. They’re pasties and you CAN see the outline under her shirt, and THAT’s what makes them disgusting.

    So how in anyway is a movie where the puma gets the guy any different than the condescending movies she’s talking about? You know, the ones where the girl isn’t happy unless she gets the guy? She totally contradicts herself, again.

    I like this woman less and less as she ages and pretends to be an “empowered” woman. An empowered woman doesn’t have to prove herself by showing that she can woo younger men. An empowered woman is a happy woman with or without a younger or older man. Give it up Jen. Go find a good generational epic and get out of the romantic comedy mold.

  16. Granger says:

    CeeJay, you took the words right out of my mouth. I’m DYING to find out the ending to Pumas, because I’m willing to bet Aniston’s character is desperately unhappy until she bags a man at the end. Ugh. I can’t stand it when actresses try to sound all intellectual and empowered and then continue to star in crap films that really, in the end, are simply about women whose “only way of being happy is finding a man.”

    Aniston is in SERIOUS need of a career revamp — but the problem is, the studios know as well as most of the public how limited her range is, and they’re not willing to hire her for the more substantial roles that consistently go to much better actresses in her age range — like Nicole Kidman, Hilary Swank, Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, Laura Linney, et al.

  17. HashBrowns says:

    I love how one person says she probably has nipple pasties and then the next says, yea you can kinda see the outline and then it’s a fact all of a sudden that you can, in fact, see the outline of the nipple pasties and she does, in fact, wear them.

    Nice investigating kids.

  18. Bodhi says:

    It is a double standard, but that doean’t mean that women should lower themselves to that standard. (And I don’t mean that women dating younger men is “lowering” themselves, hell, I’m a year older than my husband & my mom is 3 1/2 years older than my dad.) I mean that making movies glorifying & buying in the this “cougar” BS is ridiculous.

    And there is no way crap like this is “empowering” in the slightest.

    And yeah, the hair & her nipples are pretty much her bread & butter. Lame…

    Edit: ditto CeeJay & Granger; y’all said it better than I did!

  19. crash2GO2 says:

    Totally love the hair like this. Very hot. But knowing Jen, she doesn’t wear it this way very often because it screams ‘Look at me, look at me!’. And she’s not about that.

  20. hello! says:

    Crash: Jen not about that? hahaha. Jen is ALL about being looked at. I’ve seen her nipples so many times I can’t even count anymore, and I’ve never watched Friends. I heard the hard nips on the show was her Hollywood trade-mark. The hair is also her signature. She knows it, too. That’s why she spent $50,000 on her hair stylist for a week’s travel in Europe. That’s $50,000 in one week!

  21. Goddess711 says:

    a) GO COUGARS! WOOOOO!
    b) Those tatas can’t be real. I want some too. Where’d she get ‘em?
    c)Seriously – love HER or hate HER, how many of your moms looked like that in their cougardom? See B.

  22. San says:

    I think it’s disgusting that she put that mess on. She must be going through some serious crisis.
    Agree-Aniston is not about acting but more about being looked at. To bad she don’t have better goals at her age.

  23. lisa says:

    She should just keep going with the hair and cover up her whole face like cousin it. She’d look much better. Her hair is very nice. The face? Not so much.

  24. lea says:

    This is why I lost respect for her. This is so uncalled for. She is not fooling any one.

  25. DD says:

    Lame. She needs to get out of the romantic comedy genre. And wtf is up with Gerard Butler and all this rom com business… His star is falling.

  26. anon1000 says:

    is this middle-aged woman serious??? playing a 30 something?? PLEASE!! and can the bad movies she makes mirror her miserable life more?

  27. anon1000 says:

    in that main pic she looks like a scraggly dog

  28. Beth Wishes says:

    there are pictures of her topless. she just has naturally big nipples. as if she needs pasties. lol. :P

  29. styro says:

    Naturally big nipples? So do I, but they don’t pop out in warm weather.She’s wearing pasties. Her former roomate said she wore them for auditions to make herself more “fuckab;e.”

  30. Ursula says:

    She has a very hot bod, and her ex is falling out of clubs wondering how crappy being a father of six with a psycho baby momma is.

  31. Diva says:

    some people on this post are so pathetic!!all of you dogs are so jealous of her and her amazing life!!why should she stop making RomCom’s if she is making millions and millions of dollars per movie???? have all of you forgotten
    leprechaun???derailed???good girl???rock star???break up??? she played a completely different character in each of these movies

  32. Cheyenne says:

    Yes, I forgot about Leprechaun, Derailed, The Good Girl, Rock Star and the Break-Up, because they are all eminently forgettable movies.

    Sorry, honey, but I am a long way from being jealous of a no-talent serial dumpee who is desperately grasping at any straws available to keep from sliding into the oblivion she should have been relegated to a long time ago.

  33. Bina says:

    Fake nipples, folks. You never saw that Sex and the City episode?

  34. whatever says:

    Hahah, Lisa, cousin it is about right! At this point. she’s walking hair-do and a pair of lok-at-me pasties! Those things are SO FAKE.

  35. Nev says:

    What if men stuffed socks in their pants to make it look like they were excited. That would be just as disgusting as Jen’s desperate nipple act.
    Now that’s pathetic.

  36. QueenMab says:

    I’ll ALWAYS be Team Angelina, and it’s so so SO obvious that those are not real nips! She’s taken falsie nips and simply put them over the right spot(s). Those things are available at many stores, lingerie shops and online, just google false nipple accessories. She’s PATHETIC, a perpetually whiny loser. FAIL!!!

  37. Nicole says:

    She’s on the movie set. maybe this is part of the character. Love the hair

  38. Beth Wishes says:

    styro: you have naturally big nipples? and you think I don’t? so… what happens when you wear a thin, flimsy t-shirt and a thin, unpadded bra? if I did that, my nipples and the contours of my areolas would clearly show no matter the temperature.

    besides all we see is a few shots of her standing in one spot. where did she come from? has she been standing at the same spot outside for a long period of time? i doubt her trailer or the indoor areas don’t have AC!

  39. Seriously says:

    OBVIOUS fakes. Her bra looks padded. They pop out through BOTH a padded bra and t-shirt in the sun? It would have to be an artic chill to do that. In every single picture the nips look the same, while her hairstyle changes. Real nips don’t do that–they go in and out. They don’t STAY OUT FOREVER. Stop making lame excuses for a 40 yr. old child seeking attention.

  40. Beth Wishes says:

    Seriously: in every single pic? maybe you should put your glasses on. (I tried to link to a pic on splashnews but it won’t let me. oh well.)

    pretty pathetic when you can’t tell a padded bra from an unpadded bra. usually people just claim she’s never wearing a bra. LOL.

  41. jsan says:

    1) She should stop messing with her face. Starting to look plastic.
    2) Nipples – yawn.
    3) Definitely NOT an empowering movie concept. Enough with the labels for women.
    4) Someone mentioned Gilles Marini. Oh yes, verrrrry yummy!!

  42. whatever says:

    #40, maybe you should take off your “I LOVE Rachel” glasses. Those things are fakes. Delusional Aniston fans would never believe Rachel wears fake nipples. Didn’t her OWN ex-roommate tell the world that she did?

  43. whatever says:

    Jennifer Aniston is a fan of ‘pokies.’
    “Brave Jennifer Aniston isn’t going to let a 65-degree L.A. winter stop her from showing her stuff. We hear the actress is a fan of “pokies,” plastic nips that slide in under a woman’s bra. “Jennifer loves these things, because they really make the most of her assets when she’s wearing a tight top,” a source blabs.” NY Daily News

  44. Beth Wishes says:

    watever: LOL i’m the delusional one? did you just cite a tabloid as your defense? *cracking up* thanks, you just brightened up my day.

  45. lisa says:

    B. Wishes, if New York Daily News was a bad tabloid, Aniston wouldn’t have given them an interview as she has done before. Most girls wouldn’t walk around displaying their erect nipples for paps to take pics. They’d cover up a little, or wear a better bra. No one wants to see an erect man walking around. She obviously wants that kind of attention.

  46. Beth Wishes says:

    lisa: google is your friend. :) new york daily news was quoting…wait for it… STAR MAGAZINE. not tabloid, lisa?

    does she want the attention, i don’t know. however, don’t tell me you’ve never found out you were accidentally showing something you didn’t want to.

    i’m just giving her the benefit of a doubt. (btw nyc hasn’t had temps higher than 85 degrees all last week. see for yourself if you don’t believe me.)

  47. Kristen says:

    seriously it is 2009, why is everyone so hung up on nipples, everyone has got them.
    Jeez in Europe you can go topless, it is just boobs and nipples.

    Maybe we should start putting underwear on animals to cover their balls, maybe we should cover pregnant animals nipples.

    Bunch of quakers I say. Loosen up grandmas.

  48. Kristen says:

    Also want to add she is on set, so either she is in costume or gonna be put in costume, why should she do her hair when they are gonna fix it how they want for the movie or maybe they want it messy for the scene.

  49. Kristen says:

    Lisa are you a Jolie fan, you should google the pic of Angie and james Haven posing with Jon Voight, she is in a white T-shirt with her nipples very erect to pose with her dad and brother.

  50. whatever says:

    It doesn’t matter if the source is a tabloid. Her constant erect nipples don’t look natural. ANYONE with EYES can see she does something so she can get ATTENTION. So tacky. Her OWN roommate said she used to ice her nipples before auditions and they used to stuff their bras.

  51. whatever says:

    The Best Friend Who Casually Destroys Your Life. Balbirer’s “underminer” was a “famous sitcom actress called ‘Jane’”

    Jane was the daughter of a soap actor and a plastic surgery victim who had divorced. Nancy let Jane live rent-free in her Village apartment. Nancy said Jane, who was then working at a burger joint, was obsessed with her looks, and would give herself bikini waxes while lying upside-down on the couch. The pair went on auditions, on diets, and to aerobics classes together. Jane advised Nancy to try and be ‘more fu*ckable’ on auditions, and to stuff her bra. Jane iced her nipples before auditions, and lamented her big butt and her nose, which she said ‘came from her Greek half.’ Jane moved to Los Angeles, got liposuction, a nose job and a hairline adjustment, and lost a lot of weight after going on Nutri­Slim.

  52. QueenMab says:

    Y’know what’d be great,
    Jen singing ‘Hula Hana of Kamana Whala Hula Bay’ and trying to hula. Then the false nips (she has no hips) would fall out and she’d be…(wait for it)…OUTED!

  53. Beth Wishes says:

    like i said, google her topless pics. or google the pics where she was in the pool with john mayer. you telling me she was wearing a bikini with fake nips in the water?

    you guys want to believe she has no nipples, it’s funny. why you wish that so badly? makes me kinda feel sorry for you and almost feel sorry for laughing at you.

    i’ve never had experience with these fake nips. so tell me, do they look so real and seamless? do they stay on so securely and never fall off? how are they attached to skin and is the adhesion water proof? if you have big nips, what happens when they get erect under the fake nips? do your real nips push the fake nips out even more or do the fake nips fall off?

  54. Beth Wishes says:

    whaever: ya, i would believe aniston over a tabloid “source.” tabloids make their money because they know what people are imagining so they’ll believe anything tabloids make up. people like you obviously.

    if there really was a “roommate,” she’s probably bitter cause she’s still a nobody and has to sell a story to make her rent. they both stuffed their bras and only one of them is famous? LOL.

  55. AnnaP says:

    Does anyone know what brand t-shirt that is?

    I’m not concerned about the nipple baring, which can easily be remedied if one so desires, but I like the fit and color of this shirt.

  56. crash2GO2 says:

    Yeesh, what a lot of viscousness and venom over nipples and hair. This is why women will never rule the world. We’re too busy tearing each other apart over appearances.

  57. gross says:

    Beth Wishes, you must be Aniston’s personal asss monkey to keep coming up with one excuses for her! Her nipples are gross really. When will stupid women like Aniston learn that tawdry sex appeal NEVER subsitutes for brains and talent? Probably never. That’s why I could NEVER be a fan of hers. She’s stupid and tacky. I have more respect for that biatch heigl than Aniston.

  58. Beth Wishes says:

    gross: i make excuses for liking jen? cause i use my brain and don’t listen to tabloids? cause i speak from my own experiences and not my hateful bias? what does that make you when you keep making excuses for hating jen?

    this is too easy. where are your brains? :D

  59. gross says:

    Thanks for the laugh, Beth Wishes! I think people with bad grammar should NEVER ask other people where their brains are. If I had to judge by your grammar, you are about ten years old, right?

  60. Beth Wishes says:

    gross: LOL way to get to the root of an argument. attack the grammar.

    hey einstein, reread you own posts. did you notice “coming up with one excuses for her”? LOL. “you are about ten years old, right?” at least the things i write don’t actually sound like a 10-year-old, unlike you. ^_^

  61. gross says:

    “Argument”? That’s hysterical. You don’t have an argument; you are basically babbling like an idiot. And, my grammar makes you sound nearly illiterate, by contrast. Go back to school and learn something useful.

  62. CJ says:

    OMG She has nipples like cow udders! I’d cover those things up if I were her.

  63. Beth Wishes says:

    gross: delusional much? me thinks i’m not the one who needs to go back to school here, especially with such gems as calling people here “asss monkey.” :)

    if it makes you feel better to think i’m illiterate, it’s ok with me, kid. i already feel like a bully talking with you. ^_^

  64. hello! says:

    Haha, CJ, cow’s udders, that’s hysterical!
