If CAA plays matchmaker for Jennifer Aniston, do they get 10% of her wedding gifts?
Jennifer Aniston -- the woman who launched a million haircuts -- needs a new man, according to Rush & Molloy. Her high-profile romance with singer-sheepdog John Mayer ended with Mayer publicly announcing that he did the dumping. Nice.
I guess that being on the wrong end of a break-up is not good press for a leading lady. The NY Daily News gossip hounds report:
"Meanwhile, whether she knew it or not, Aniston's agents at CAA were calling around L.A. asking available men if they'd be interested in taking the beauty out. One was our flabbergasted friend -- a tall, dark and handsome writer -- who said, "Of course!" Word is Jen has asked them to cool the matchmaking, for now."
The alleged backdoor setups by her agents are some sort of spin control to make Aniston seem desirable. The whole idea of fighting over who dumped whom is so high school. Then again, Aniston endured the most ballyhooed romantic rejection of all when she and Brad Pitt split and then he took up with Angelina Jolie. Pitt and Aniston announced their separation in January 2005. But did the break-up hinder her image as a leading lady? ("Derailed" and "Rumor Has It" were hardly hits, but "The Break-Up" -- hint, hint -- was a box office success.)
The whole issue begs the question: Does being dumped make you less desirable?
