It's hard to imagine Jennifer Aniston doing anything other than acting because she rivets you to the screen with her talent and likeability but the Greek-American staple of movies and TV shows said she also switched to interior decorating. 

Speaking to Cosmopolitan, she wouldn't reveal which role it was she hinted was so exhausting that it made her think of not wanting to go on and to switch to wanting to fix up houses. 

During a SmartLess podcast, the Aveeno legend told Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett, "I would have to say the last two years that [quitting] has crossed my mind, which it never did before." She added that it "sucked the life out of me" and she thought, "I don't know if this is what interests me." 

The only other hint she gave about what made her rethink her life was that it was an “unprepared project” she completed before The Morning Show. 

She said she'd love to try her hand as a professional interior decorator but didn't say what style she prefers. "I love it. It's my happy place. It's really a happy place for me," she said.
