She's the "wife from hell"...
Radar Online reports that while Jennifer Aniston wants to work with Judd Apatow, she doesn't want to work with his wife Leslie Mann who appears in all of his films.
A source said: "Jen longs to star in a comedy with her friend Elizabeth Banks, but a major stumbling block is that Judd might want Leslie to be in the movie, too. Leslie is friends with neither Jen nor Elizabeth, and she's infamous among Hollywood circles for not getting along with his leading ladies. She's his wife from hell."
Mann has appeared in many of Apatow's films including The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and This Is 40. Mann's latest film (The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton) isn't an Apatow film. Aniston's last film produced by Apatow was 2012's Wonderlust, which was a flop but resulted in Aniston meeting her fiance Justin Theroux.
The source added: "Jen has told her reps to start discussions with Judd, with the the caveat that Jen and her friend Elizabeth will star in one of his upcoming films. Leslie is probably the biggest obstacle to Judd doing a film starring Jen or Elizabeth, for obvious reasons."
