BRAD PITT wanted the role swiped by MARK WAHLBERG in new movie ROCK STAR (2001)- so he could star opposite his wife JENNIFER ANISTON. The FRIENDS babe admits she had hoped the movie would be her and her husband's big screen debut collaboration.
But one problem stood in the way of Pitt taking on the role of a sexy young rock star - his age. Jennifer says, "He was going to do it, but they didn't get the script to where - well, Brad's a little bit older. Then about a year went by and they said that they wanted Mark Wahlberg, so that was great. " (SVD/WNV/KW)
