Jennifer Aniston in Early Talks to Star in MEAN MOMS

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Aniston is in "early" negotiations to star in the film adaptation of Rosalind Wiseman's MEAN MOMS. Beth McCarthy-Mille will direct.

The film from New Line "follows a mom who is forced to deal with some grown-up "mean girls" in her suburban neighborhood."

Aniston's television career then started after being cast as a series regular on "Molloy" and "The Edge." She had guest-starring roles on "Quantum Leap" and "Burke's Law" and a starring role in "Ferris Bueller." She was then cast in perhaps her most well-known role as Rachel Green in the classic television comedy "Friends." For her role as Rachel, she received five Emmy nominations, two SAG Award nominations and two Golden Globe nominations. She won an Emmy (2002) and a Golden Globe (2003) for Lead Actress in a Comedy. The generosity of her fans led to her winning five People's Choice Awards.

During hiatus from "Friends," Aniston pursued a budding film career. She had roles in THEN THERE WAS YOU, PICTURE PERFECT, DREAMS FOR AN INSOMNIAC, SHE'S THE ONE, ROCK STAR and THE OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION -- the first of her roles with Paul Rudd -- and BRUCE ALMIGHTY with Jim Carrey. One of her most critically-acclaimed roles was 2002's THE GOOD GIRL with Jake Gyllenhaal, for which Aniston received an Independent Spirit Award nomination. She also had starring roles in RUMOR HAS IT with Kevin Costner and Shirley Maclaine, DERAILED with Clive Owen and the box-office hit THE BREAK-UP with Vince Vaughn. For her role as a depressed housekeeper in director Nicole Holofcener's FRIENDS WITH MONEY, the independent film which also starred Frances McDormand and Catherine Keener, Aniston received some of the best reviews of her career.

Proving her ability to navigate the world of both independent and studio-financed films, Aniston also co-starred in the box-office hits in the emotionally-moving Marley & ME with Owen Wilson and HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU. She also starred alongside leading men Gerard Butler in THE BOUNTY HUNTER and Aaron Eckhart in LOVE HAPPENS. Adam Sandler played her leading man in The Comedy hit JUST GO WITH IT. After co-starring in THE SWITCH, her first film with Jason Bateman, Aniston and Bateman costarred in the box-office hit HORRIBLE BOSSES, which also starred Jason Sudeikis and Colin Farrell, and in which Aniston played a sexually insatiable dentist.
