Despite heavy promotion, lots of hype and a sexy co-star, Jennifer Aniston’s latest film, The Bounty Hunter, has pretty much bombed. Even the endless speculation about her relationship with co-star Gerard Butler couldn’t bring fans to the theaters, and the film has only pulled in $38.4 million in its first 10 days in theaters.
Aniston’s bad luck at the box office prompted an unnamed film critic to dish out some tough talk about the actress.
“Aniston just can’t play the good friend anymore,” the critic said. “She’s aged out, no matter the yoga and the highlights. She just can’t do America’s sweetheart next door. She needs a big wake-up call.”
The critic spoke on the condition of anonymity, but didn’t limit the discussion to Aniston’s film choices.
“And as for her taste in men, it’s totally off. John Mayer? Gerard Butler? She’s missing a common-sense gene,” the critic added.
