She's ready to be a cougar! It's been three months since Jennifer Aniston announced her split from her estranged husband Justin Theroux, and now the Friends alum is ready to get back on the dating scene. But souces exclusively revealed to Life & Style that Jen has some very specific requirements for the next guy she dates, and she's asking her friends to see if they can look around and land her a younger man!
"Jen’s telling friends that she wants to date a younger guy," a source told Life & Style. "But she needs help. She wants her friends to set her up."
One of those pals is her former Friends co-star Courteney Arquette, and Courteney has been part of the cougar club for a while now so she can definitely give advice to her bestie about what it's like to date youngers guys. Courteney, 53, was married to actor David Arquette who is seven years younger than she is, and she's currently engaged to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, who is 12 years younger.
At 49 years old, Jen is looking amazing as ever so it would be pretty easy for her to find a guy and her pals are already finding a ton of suitors. "Ellen DeGeneres and Jason Bateman are also trying to find the perfect younger man for Jen," the source said. "So far, they aren’t having much trouble finding guys who are interested in a catch like Jen."
It also wouldn't hurt if Jen landed a super hot, way younger guy so she could compete with her ex, Justin. The 46-year-old actor has been linked to 25-year-old pop star Selena Gomez, and sources previously revealed to Life & Style that things between Selena and Justin are getting serious. "They've become closer than ever," the insider said. "It's turned into something more than friendship."
