After wrapping production on the comedy The Bounty with Gerard Butler, Jennifer Aniston says she is taking a break from acting.

"I'm going to go on an adventure, take myself somewhere," she tells Fox News. "I won't start another job until at least January. I want to take time off."

In January, production begins on The Goree Girls, a musical that Aniston, 40, is starring in and producing about a country music group of all-female prison inmates. She has even said she'll sing in the 1940s-era flick.

In addition to brushing up on her singing skills, Aniston (whose new romance Love Happens opens Sept. 19) tells Fox, "I'm going to throw myself into [production company] Echo and just keep plugging away."
