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 thirtysomething 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.)
"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…"
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.
