Is Jennifer Aniston writing a tell-all while under quarantine? A new report says she is. Gossip Cop investigates.
The Morning Show star graces the cover of Us Weekly this week with the headline ¡°Finally, In Her Own Words.¡± Inside, the magazine reports that the actress has spent much of her downtime in quarantine crafting the memoir. An insider tells the outlet that Aniston, ¡°has been writing a ton,¡± and ¡°won¡¯t hold anything back when she writes her book.¡±
The source continues, ¡°It¡¯ll cover everything she¡¯s been through, from her rise to the top of the A-list to the lessons she¡¯s learned along the way.¡± A second source adds, ¡°Jen¡¯s dabbled in personal writing in the past, but now the timing¡¯s right for her to do it her own way.¡± Will it include all the subjects fans of the Friends star hope for? The sources say yes.
¡°There¡¯s no way she could write candidly without recounting the highs and lows of her romances,¡± one tipster explains. Those romances, the insider explains, include Tate Donovan, Vince Vaughn, Justin Theroux, and of course, most importantly, Brad Pitt. That includes their recent reunion. ¡°Jen¡¯s very clear that she harbors no ill will toward Brad for what happened,¡± the source claims, referring to Pitt¡¯s affair with Angelina Jolie that broke up their marriage 15 years ago.
The second so-called ¡°source¡± says not to hold your breath though, as it could be a long wait for fans. ¡°Her team¡¯s been putting pressure on her for ages to start the process, but Jen hasn¡¯t really shown anybody what she¡¯s done,¡± adding Aniston is following a similar timeline as Demi Moore, whose memoir came out last year after a decade of work. ¡°Demi¡¯s book took 10 years for her write, and Jen¡¯s probably going to be just as long a process. She¡¯s been keeping journals throughout her adult life ¡ª and it¡¯s just a matter of her and her rep deciding when the time¡¯s rights."
Well, Gossip Cop can give fans of Jennifer Aniston another reason not to hold their collective breath waiting for this book: It¡¯s not actually happening. Aniston is not writing a memoir and her ¡°team¡± is not begging her to do so. In fact, the very opposite is happening. We reached out to Aniston¡¯s rep, who responded in no uncertain terms, that the article is a complete fabrication, telling us,
She is NOT writing a memoir and has no plans to do so in the future.
In fact, Us Weekly also asked her team for a comment before publishing this phony report and did not included the strong denial it sent over. Aniston¡¯s official spokesperson told Gossip Cop that her team¡¯s response was very clear,
they made this up and purposefully did not include our denial.
It¡¯s worth noting that Gossip Cop has repeatedly debunked this very same claim multiple times in the past by various tabloids. Just a month and a half ago, we busted Us Weekly¡¯s sister publication OK! for purporting that Jennifer Aniston was preparing for a ¡°tell-all¡± interview. As we reported then, her rep told us the same thing then as now, Aniston ¡°has never planned, nor does she currently have plans for a memoir.¡±
That article came almost one year to the day after another publication owned by the same company, In Touch, falsely reported that she was planning a tell-all interview with ¡°someone like Oprah Winfrey.¡± She wasn¡¯t planning it in 2019 either. Nor was she planning it in 2018 when another sister outlet of the same publications, RadarOnline, alleged that she was writing a ¡°sensational autobiography.¡± Gossip Cop debunked all these stories at the time and for the time being, nothing has changed. We expect this won¡¯t be the last time we have to do this, as it seems to be one of the tabloids¡¯ favorite things to incorrectly report on.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
