Director Peter Chelsom has revealed that Jennifer Aniston was one of his first choices for the main roles in his film Serendipity.
Chelsom revealed that he asked Anniston to come and meet him and his team about the role of Sara Thomas, a role that was eventually taken by Kate Beckinsale.
However, the actor turned down the role due to her ongoing commitments on ‘Friends’ at the time.
Chelsom told Insider: “I distinctly remember Jennifer Aniston coming in to meet us.”
He continued: “I remember when she came in, she said, “I do a romantic comedy once a week,” her being on “Friends” at the time, so she clearly had other things on her plate and it was her decision not to do it.
“She had come to meet with me in good faith without an offer, but we definitely would have made her an offer if she wanted to make it.”
He also revealed that Spy Kids actor Carla Gugino was another actor who came “extremely close” to landing the part.
He added: “I ended up casting her in my movie years later, “The Space Between Us.”
Recently, Aniston said that the “Friends” cast experienced “hard truths, loss and miscarriages” in the wake of the show.
