Jennifer Aniston to Play a Puma


For Jennifer Aniston's next role, she'll play a thirtysomething woman who, together with a female friend (possibly played by Elizabeth Banks, whom Aniston wanted for the role last year), makes "a habit of romancing younger men." The two ladies "take a French skiing vacation that challenges their romantic expectations." The title of the movie is Pumas, as, of course, an alternative term to "Cougars."

In an interesting juxtaposition, this news arrives at the same time that we learn of another project about women's sexuality: Diane Keaton's HBO movie about a feminist who starts a sexually explicit magazine for women.

Does "Pumas" just have a nicer ring to it than "Cougars?" And as we also prepare for ABC's upcoming series Cougar Town (starring Aniston's Friends friend, Courteney Cox), is the whole "Cougar" concept getting a teensy bit tired? Do you think either (or both) of these projects (Pumas, Keaton's HBO movie) is empowering?
