Jennifer Aniston is taking a year off from acting, according to US Weekly magazine.

A friend of Aniston's told US Weekly, Jen's taking a year off from work to enjoy herself.

The hiatus comes after releasing three movies this year, including Horrible Bosses which premieres this Friday. A recent report stated Aniston makes 28 million dollars per film, meaning this hiatus leaves a potential hefty payday on the table.

Aniston has recently been linked to screenwriter Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2) and a Theroux insider indicates Aniston would like to work with him.

She wants to collaborate with him, the source said. She's impressed by his ability to find humor in dry material.

Aniston started dating Theroux after he broke off a 14-year relationship with designer Heidi Bivens. Rumors swirled that Theroux started seeing Aniston while he was still living with Bivens but all Bivens would say is that Theroux had moved out and he didn't have any further comment.

The pair was recently spotted looking at apartments together in New York and going out to dinner on a double date with Horrible Bosses co-star Jason Bateman and his wife.
