Jennifer Aniston to take a career break for love

Eleanor Young

We’re used to seeing a lot of Jennifer Aniston, as the hardworking Friends starlet turns out film after film. But it seems the actress could soon be set to disappear for a year, reportedly planning some time out of the spotlight to concentrate on love.

Jen began dating actor Justin Theroux just months ago, but according to reports the actress is so smitten with her new beau she’s decided to give herself some time off to concentrate on the new relationship.


According to those familiar with her busy schedule, Jen – who’s currently on the promotional trail publicising new flick Horrible Bosses – has just one commitment left in her diary this year.

It’s thought once she’s finished promoting indie movie Wunderlust, scheduled for release in October, Jen has cleared her calendar for the next 12 months, to focus on being a full-time girlfriend.

'Jen's taking a year off from work to enjoy herself,' one insider told American magazine, Us Weekly.

During her time away, it’s thought the actress will also work on her production company’s on-going project about singers in women’s prisons.

And whose help does Jen want to enlist? None other than new man Justin's.

'She's impressed by his ability to find humour in dry material,' the source told to Us, adding than Ms Aniston is hoping he’ll collaborate with her on the script.

Just last week the usually coy actress spoke about her new love in an interview with Good Morning America, gushing that she was ‘extremely lucky and extremely happy’ to have him.

The pair were also spotted cosying up at a premiere after-party in LA. 'They were super cute. He had his arm around her and kissed her on her cheek,’ one onlooker revealed.
