Playing Jennifer Aniston Is Ready to Return to TV: 'There's More Opportunity for Women'

Jennifer Aniston is definitely entertaining the idea of a return to the small screen.

The 47-year-old actress -- who starred on Friends from1994 to 2004 -- appears on Netflix's Chelsea on Dec. 9, and admits that she has thought about coming back to TV. Host Chelsea Handler suggests to her longtime friend that she create a show with her Office Christmas Party co-star, Jason Bateman, writer Justin Malen and executive producer Will Speck.

"We're so all over that. Television is where it's at," Aniston -- -- whose husband, Justin Theroux, currently stars on HBO's The Leftovers -- responds.

"I really do believe the shows are more interesting," she adds. "There's more opportunity for women ...unless they want you as a superhero."

That being said, the A-lister would be "psyched" if someone asked her to take on such a role. "I would want to be, like, the really uncoordinated superhero. I couldn't take myself seriously leaping out of somewhere in a full leather something," Aniston quips.

She also jokes that 50-year-old Catwoman star, Halle Berry, could play a sexy superhero "for the rest of her life," referring to her age-defying good looks.

During the interview, Aniston appears quite comfortable chatting with Handler, though the two make no mention in the clip of the actress' ex-husband, Brad Pitt, and his split from wife Angelina Jolie -- though the talk show host has spoken about the breakup on several occasions in the past.

"As if Jen cares -- she doesn't care. It's ridiculous that people still drag her into this," Handler told Grazia magazine of her friend's reaction to Pitt's divorce. "Hello, as if she is sitting around even caring about this."
