Jennifer Aniston Getting Ready To Adopt?

The actress has finally been inspired to adopt after BFF Sheryl Crow brought home her second child! Take that Brad!

It looks like Jennifer Aniston doesn’t need a man in her life to start a family – she’s getting ready to adopt! The National Enquirer reports that after speaking with BFF Sheryl Crow and talking about single motherhood, she is ready to make the leap. “Jen sees how happy Wyatt and now Levi make Sheryl,” a source told the Enquirer. “And Sheryl has told Jen, ‘Don’t wait for a man to make a family!’” It looks like she’ll have something in common with ex Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie now!

Jennifer Aniston Will Be “Aggressive Sexually” In ‘Horrible Bosses’

The blogs have been in a frenzy, reporting that the actress, 41, is set to appear alongside Colin Farrell in a sex-crazed – even kinky – role in the film Horrible Bosses due out next year, in which she will get naked.

Aniston’s rep tells PEOPLE the actress will not show any private parts, but he does say this role is far cry from her Friends days as daddy’s girl Rachel Green.

“The part is provocative and sexual, but also hysterically funny,” the rep says. “There are no plans for her to go fully nude or topless, but the role does require an aggressive sexuality that many folks have not seen from Jennifer on screen before.”

In the meantime, Aniston’s romantic comedy The Switch hits theaters in August.

Jennifer Aniston Among Celebs Donating Shoes To Philly Hero In Heels Auction

Snakeskin espadrilles with a fierce wedge. By Jimmy Choo. From the closet of Jennifer Aniston.

Could it get any better for a fashionista?

Apparently not.

The shoes were one of 20 pairs sold last week during the Hero in Heels charity auction that raised more than $9,600 for women battling cancer. The fashion show, held at the Trust building on Arch Street, was put together by Dave Girgenti’s Wish Upon a Hero Foundation, an online nonprofit that grants requests to people in need.

“I wanted to put together a fund-raiser for women using something they were very passionate about,” said Girgenti, a graphic designer, who now grants wishes full time. “And we know that women are passionate about shoes.”

Most shoes went for $200, but Jennifer’s Jimmys went for $800. Three hundred people attended. Not bad for a local fund-raiser with fashion as the focus.

Other celebrity shoes auctioned included a pair of silver Cole Haan peep-toe stilettos courtesy of actress Samantha Harris, and Tod’s sandals that once belonged to Scarlett Johansson.

Taylor Swift donated her gently used studded Betsey Johnsons. And British songstress Estelle gave a pair of to-die-for olive-green Halston pumps. Some buyers said they’d be wearing their purchases; others wanted to display them as art, Girgenti said.

The night featured runway presentations by Gregory Taylor, creative director for women’s wear line Walish Gooshe; Sarah Van Aken, with her popular Center City-based line SAVA; and Carmelita Greco, who showed pieces from her artsy Carmelita Couture collection.

Girgenti started Wish Upon a Hero in September 2007 as a way to grant wishes to people dealing with unexpected tragedies. Many of his requests, he said, were from women with cancer. Some of them were simple: silk scarves to cover heads bald from chemotherapy. Others were more difficult to fulfill – breast prosthesis.

Girgenti thought up the celebrity shoe auction idea a year ago when watching E! Entertainment. He was flabbergasted to learn the prices of designer shoes – although any shoe maven can tell you without missing a beat: Jimmy Choos can run you more than $500.

Girgenti also accurately surmised that celebrities don’t get much mileage from their shoes, probably wearing them once or twice. So he got his interns together and they started Facebooking, twittering, and e-mailing celebrity publicists on a quest for pumps and peep-toes.

“I thought it was going to be hard, but it wasn’t,” said Girgenti, who is now filming a reality show about granting wishes for the online Eclipse channel. “After all, we weren’t asking them to donate money or time. We just wanted their shoes. It turned out to be a lot easier than we expected.”

In April, Girgenti held an online auction and sold about 20 pairs of shoes, raising about $2,000. He decided to create Thursday night’s live auction because he predicted women would be more likely to fall in love if they could see shoes in person.

“We hope this becomes an annual event,” Girgenti said. “Maybe next year we’ll see Kelly Ripa here.”

Jennifer Aniston To Play A Swinger, Pothead In Film

Jennifer Aniston is ditching her squeaky clean image.

The actress, 41, will star in two raunchy movies (due out in 2011) that have her swearing, stripping and swinging, a source tells

In Wanderlust, she re-teams with The Object of My Affection co-star Paul Rudd. The two play a flaky New York Couple who long for a home of their own, but because of the economy and faltering careers, they reluctantly settle for living with his obnoxious brother in Georgia.

En route to their new Southern home, they stop at a B&B, which turns out to be a commune. There, they meet nudists, smoke pot and even participate in an orgy. Aniston, who plays Linda, has sex with two men and a woman who gives birth moments later.

In another scene of the flick, of which Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad) produces, the group protests an expansion of a Wal-Mart, and Aniston’s character lifts her shirt to flash the news cameras.

Aniston and Rudd also decide to live on the commune, where they end up opening a book publishing company.

Aniston plays a potty-mouth dentist in Horrible Bosses (also starring Jamie Foxx, Jason Bateman and Colin Farrell), which depicts the lives of three friends annoyed with their careers who decide they should kill their managers to ease frustration.

At the beginning of the movie, Aniston — who is one of the bosses — fondles a patient under anesthesia, and then propositions her hygienist. Later, the hygienist comes to her office, and she opens her lab coat to reveal she’s completely naked. She threatens to tell his fiancee they’re having an affair unless he sleeps with her.

When Aniston gets wind of the plot to kill the bosses, she invites the hygienist’s fiancee to the office for some free dental work. While she’s passed out, Aniston suggests they have sex on top of her. “Let’s use her as a table — I like that idea!” she says.

Jen Aniston Sings “Happy Birthday” To Courteney Cox At 45th Bash

Happy birthday, indeed.

Jennifer Aniston helped BFF Courteney Cox celebrate her 45th birthday Tuesday night at Bouchon Beverly Hills. Also at the fete: pal Laura Dern and four other pals, a source tells

Unlike the Cobb salad Cox and Aniston dined on every day for 10 years while taping Friends, the birthday girl chowed down on steak. Both she and Aniston — who was dressed down in jeans, a loose brown tank top and a beaded necklace — drank red wine, the insider tells Us.

“The group sang happy birthday to Courteney and they cheers-ed a few times,” says the source. “They all seemed to be laughing and having a great time.”

Aniston even put up with an overzealous fan who “grabbed her pretty obnoxiously,” the source notes. “[The fan] asked her to take a picture with her. Jennifer kindly took the picture though everyone couldn’t believe how she grabbed her. But Jennifer was very sweet about it.”

The group wrapped up with dessert around 10:45 p.m

Jennifer Aniston Just “Friends” With SNL’s Jason Sudeikis

Showbiz Spy is reporting that “Jennifer Aniston has a new man in her life!”

And who might that be?

Jason Sudeikis of “Saturday Night Live” fame, claims the site.

According to Showbiz Spy – and other equally dubious sites – Aniston has “enjoyed a series of secret dates with Jason, who she met last year when they appeared in The Bounty Hunter together.”

Showbiz Spy notes, “During filming, Jen and Jason’s relationship was strictly platonic because Sudeikis was still married. However, now the actor is divorced and… the pair have taken things to the next level.”

The blog even trots out an unnamed “source” who says Aniston’s “thrilled” to be dating Sudeikis, and that she “finds him hilarious.”

Actually, what’s hilarious is that Showbiz Spy printed this inaccurate story, and Lemming-like sites such as Hollyscoop and Perez Hilton similarly jumped off journalism’s cliff – and crashed.

Aniston’s rep, who had no idea where this erroneous report came from, tells Gossip Cop that talk of the actress dating Sudeikis is “completely false – she hasn’t even seen Jason since filming.”

Jennifer Aniston To Reunite With Courteney — On The Big Screen!

JenniferAniston CourteneyCo 150x150 Jennifer Aniston to Reunite with Courteney — on the Big Screen!Last night, Jennifer Aniston stepped out to support her pal Courteney Cox at the Crystal + Lucy Awards, where the Cougar Town star was honored for her TV work. And the ladies – who got close as costars in Friends — will soon be working together again soon, Star has learned exclusively.

In the June 14 issue of Star — on sale now — we report that Jennifer may be known for her romantic comedies, but she’s switching genres for her new role: a part in Scream 4!

Jen will play a woman who’s killed off in the opening sequence, a trademark of the franchise — as a favor to BFF and Scream actress Courteney. The role will be similar to Drew Barrymore’s killer part in the first film.

“Scream has always been an important part of Courteney’s life, and she wanted Jennifer to be a part of the production,” an insider tells Star.

Courteney, her husband David Arquette and Neve Campbell will all reprise their roles in the next installment, which hits theatres in April 2011.
