Jennifer Aniston might be returning to the medium that made her a star: television.
Since the series finale of Friends in 2004, the most we've seen of Aniston on television is talk show appearances, commercials and the occasional guest starring role on a series. Aniston has been focused on her movie career for over a decade now, but with the relative increase in quality on television, she might be coming back to it.
"That's where the work is. That's where the quality is," Aniston said in a new Variety interview. "At this point in my career, I want to be part of wonderful stories, exciting characters, and also just having a good time."
Aniston has found some success in movie comedies like The Break-Up, Bruce Almighty and We're the Millers, but she is still best known for her Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning performance as Rachel Green in Friends.
The actress spoke on the enthusiasm for traveling all over the country and world has died down slightly now that she's older.
"When you're in your 20s, going away from home was an adventure - meeting new people, seeing other parts of the country or world was so exciting," she said. "Now, it's really about wanting to stay closer to home and just enjoying your time. It goes really fast. The experience needs to be a good experience. I have no time for the yelling, angry directors, or bad behavior anymore."
Aniston isn't totally over the movies, though. The actress has gradually become more involved in the filmmaking process, producing her Golden Globe- and SAG-nominated role in Cake and directing one segment of the TV movie Five.
"There's something very exciting about being part of a project from the seed of it, and putting it together," she admitted. "And you just feel so proud of it on another level."
It remains to be seen if Aniston will in fact return to television, but longtime fans of her work on Friends would likely welcome her back to their living rooms.
Aniston will next appear in the upcoming film The Yellow Birds, which is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival.
