JENNIFER Aniston admitted that she nearly QUIT Hollywood after one job “sucked the life” out of her.
The 51-year-old actress opened up about the rocky moment in her career while appearing on the Smartless podcast on Monday.
The podcast is hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett.
When the hosts asked Jennifer what’s the closest she has gotten to quitting the business, she admitted: “I would have to say the last two years that has crossed my mind, which it never did before.”
While she didn’t name the project that almost made her leave the business, she said it took place before The Morning Show.
The actress said: “It was after a job I had completed and I was like, ‘Whoa, that was really… that sucked the life out of me. And I don’t know if this is what interests me.'”
Jen revealed that she had a “fantasy” of leaving Hollywood behind.
She continued that the project in question was “unprepared” and that the “script wasn’t ready,” adding: “You always say, ‘I’ll never again. Never again! I will never back up into a start date.'”
The Friends alum noted that she was “stuck” with the project.
When Jason told her that she should further pursue directing, Jen responded: “I would love to jump into that chair more. I enjoy it thoroughly.”
The former couple played high school love interests Linda and Brad and performed a steamy sex scene during the virtual event.
The famous pair married in 2000, but shocked the world when they split in 2005.
The duo have become close friends in recent years after their bitter divorce, with Brad, 56, marrying Angelina Jolie and Jen tying the knot with Justin Theroux.
Neither relationship worked out, which makes both Brad and Jen single.
Fans speculated that the former couple may get back together when they were caught embracing backstage at the SAG Awards in January, though the pair have remained friends.
Brad and Angelina, 45, separated in 2016 and share six kids: Maddox, 19 Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.
