Jennifer Aniston Is Totally Needy

Just how dependent is Jennifer Aniston on the men in her life?

According to the New York Post, a panic shot through the Aniston camp after she and her current beau, John Mayer, broke up earlier this year, as promotional duties for her latest flick Marley & Me loomed.

It seems that Aniston, 39, was reluctant to hit the publicity trail for the flick if she wasn’t in a relationship.

“She didn’t want to face the glare of being unattached while Brad Pitt toted Angelina Jolie around” while promoting his latest movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a source tells the paper.

Aniston’s associates went into crisis mode, scrambling for a replacement boyfriend for her. “A friend of her agent was calling around asking for young men whom they could set her up with,” reveals the source.

Luckily, Aniston and her 31-year-old musician soul mate reunited shortly thereafter, sparing the agent the indignity of logging onto the “M4W Escorts” section of Craigslist on her client’s behalf.
 
(During Mayer and Aniston’s romantic hiatus, Jen was linked with several men, including 300 star Gerard Butler.)

Maybe Jen should take a lesson from John, and keep a spare mate around for just such emergencies.

There are plenty of guys who would be willing to fill the role, some of them available on very short notice.
