Now that Jennifer Aniston is single, a lot of people can’t help but wonder what her next step will be in life. After all, she’s not the kind of actress who can stay single for a very long time. She’s always been attached to someone – or at least rumored to be attached to someone – ever since she ended her first marriage to Brad Pitt back in 2005. After all, she’s a gorgeous woman who is smart and funny who has so much to offer. And now, we are not just talking about a lifetime of endless vacations to Cabo and yoga sessions with the best instructors in L.A. Jen is a warm and compassionate woman who treats her friends as well as she treats her family.
With that being said, it will only be a matter of time before she ends up making red carpet appearances with a new man in her life. Even though a lot of people were shocked that she and Justin Theroux pulled the plug on their marriage, all the signs were there. Jen is completely West Coast while Justin has made it no secret that he only feels at home in New York City. Thankfully, there are plenty of other Hollywood men who could easily take Justin’s place by Jen’s side.
20 Sam Heughan
Could you imagine Jennifer Aniston dating a dreamy Scottish actor with the most enviable abs on the small screen? We can. Okay, on the surface Sam Heughan and Jennifer Aniston might have nothing in common (we doubt that they’ve even met before), but they would surely make an attractive couple on the red carpet. Plus, Jennifer needs a man that can make her laugh right now. And if there’s one person who knows how to make women laugh (while looking pretty damn good at the same time), it’s Sam Heughan. What more can a woman ask for?
19 Harry Styles
Imagine if Jennifer Aniston would step out with someone like Harry Styles in public. The world would go bonkers. As a matter of fact, we are pretty sure that the entertainment industry would have a hard time trying to figure this one out. But then again, Jennifer does like a man who looks good in leather pants and of course, likes to rock out. We have a feeling that Jen could also teach Harry a few things in the romance department, if you know what we mean. That would be so rock and roll for Harry to get with a much older woman, too.
18 Arie Luyendyk
Jennifer Aniston did mention on several occasions that she does love to watch reality television and in particular, programs like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Arie Luyendyk could easily make a girl’s dream come true by showing up at her front door with a red rose. And by that girl, we are totally talking about Jennifer Aniston. We could see her getting totally giddy by proclaiming to all of her friends that Arie picked her as his “one and only.” Seriously, how has Jennifer Aniston not participated in a reality dating television show by now? She was made for stuff like this.
17 Colin Farrell
If you are looking for Hollywood’s ultimate bad boy, it’s Colin Farrell. Okay, Colin might have been Hollywood’s ultimate bad boy several years ago, but he’s still got that going for him. And what woman doesn’t love an Irish accent too, right? Seeing how both Colin and Jennifer have been in the entertainment industry for several long decades now, these two could swap plenty of stories over a few pints of Guinness. Plus, Colin has been single and keeping things on the down low for several years now. He’s not looking for any media attention, unlike her ex-husband.
16 Tom Holland
Okay, so Tom Holland might be one of the younger guys on this list. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve a shot with Hollywood’s ultimate sweetheart, right? Plus, Tom is a) Hollywood’s current superman and b) totes adorbs (you’ve seen the pics, right?). Sure, he might be dating Zendaya, but we haven’t heard anything serious from those two in awhile. We have a feeling that Jennifer could also teach Tom the ropes, especially when it comes to life in Hollywood. And so what if she’s old enough to be his mother? Love doesn’t discriminate and love certainly doesn’t pick any ages, either.
15 Jon Hamm
Okay, how come no one has thought about this before? Jennifer Aniston and Jon Hamm would be the ultimate Hollywood A-list couple. They are both in the same age bracket, they are successful television stars and they’ve got plenty of millions sitting in the bank. They’re also not looking to impress anyone in the industry, too. These two would be perfect for one another. Someone needs to hurry up and contact Jen and Jon’s publicist so someone could set up a date ASAP. We’d hate to see this perfect opportunity wasted. Jen and Jon would hit it off right away.
14 Robert Pattinson
Hollywood sure does have a batch load of eligible, successful and intelligent men now doesn’t it? Robert might look like he’s moody at times, but he sure is on the market for someone new, if you catch our drift. Ever since he broke off his engagement to his long-time fiancée FKA Twigs, many gossip outlets have been reporting that Rob has been keeping his eye out for someone he can share late night phone calls with. And if it’s not going to be Katy Perry, it might as well be Jen Aniston. She would pick up his phone call at 2am for sure.
13 Chris Pratt
Jennifer Aniston is funny. Chris Pratt is funny. So what do you get when you put two funny people in a room together? A lot of laughter, and hopefully in their case, plenty of chemistry, too. Plus, both Jennifer and Chris have been dealing with very heartbreaking separations and are both in the process of getting divorces. They would have plenty to talk about while hopefully helping each other heal the holes in the hearts. We didn’t mean to get sappy here, but after all that crying we are sure these two would make each other laugh their hats off.
12 Matt LeBlanc
Um, a few words here: Rachel and Joey forever! Okay, so Joey might not have gotten the girl at the end of Friends when the sitcom ended back in 2014, but it’s never too late to try again, right? Jennifer Aniston and Matt LeBlanc would be absolutely perfect for each other. The best thing about these two if that they already know each other, have great chemistry, plenty of history and would also feel very comfortable with one another. It’s just a matter of getting Matt and Jen to reconnect again. I mean, they have been friends for a very long time, now haven’t they?
11 Tom Cruise
Well, this would sure be interesting. Tom Cruise has been single and ready to mingle for several years now. Now, could Jennifer Aniston and Tom Cruise work as a Hollywood couple? Perhaps, but it would be more of Tom’s best interest than Jennifer to pursue this kind of relationship. That’s because being with Jen would help put Tom back on the map, especially after his disastrous split from Katie Holmes. But for Jen, it would help boost her up to the A-list, even with some strings attached. And by that, we mean that Jennifer Aniston would have to dabble in the Church of Scientology, for better or for worse.
10 Nick Jonas
Whoa, now. Does anyone smell that smoke? Because we do. Just thinking about Nick Jonas and Jennifer Aniston lights a fire. They would without a doubt be the best looking couple on the market. Of course, Nick is currently dating Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra, but no one knows just how long that relationship will last. And if it doesn’t (we are just speculating here), Nick could easily give Jennifer a call. In other words, be on stand by, Jennifer. We have no doubt in our minds that this romance would make Justin Theroux jealous, for sure.
9 Zayn Malik
Speaking of guys who like to wear tight leather pants (the world sure does have plenty of them), we’ve got another one for Jennifer Aniston: Zayn Malik. Fresh off his relationship with supermodel Gigi Hadid, Zayn needs a woman who can soothe his soul and maybe make a breakfast bowl of cereal for him in the morning. And that woman would definitely be Jennifer Aniston. Plus, she would tell him that she loves all of his new songs, even if she didn’t mean it. That’s the kind of girl Jen is. She’ll give you that reaffirmation that everything is fine, even when it isn’t. And Zayn needs that in his life right now.
8 Henry Cavill
Well hello there, Superman. Henry Cavill is another eligible Hollywood hunk that could use a woman like Jennifer Aniston by his side. After all, very Superman needs a Superwoman, right? Ok, we get that was cheesy but if Jen’s publicist and Henry’s publicist would do the math here, they would have a great equation between Henry and Jen. Plus, both of their Hollywood careers on the big screen could use a bit of a boost right now. Seeing these two on the big screen together would also benefit the both of them as well. Someone get to the phone already!
7 Ben Affleck
We know that this might be a controversial pick, but Jennifer Aniston and Ben Affleck actually go way back. They both worked on the hit 2009 film, He’s Just Not In To You. And yes, their characters broke up in the film, but it’s not like they can’t use the experience from making that movie as a reference, right? Yes, that might be a stretch, but we could see someone like Jennifer giving Ben a stern speech about living his best, healthiest life. And hey, that’s certainly something he needs in his life right now? If there’s anyone who knows how to give sound advice, it’s Jennifer Aniston.
6 Chris Evans
We’ve already put Superman on this list, so we might as well just add Captain America too, right? Chris Evans is that kind of boyfriend that every girl wants. He’s kind, he’s funny, he’s considerate and yes, he’s not that bad on the eyes, either. The only problem with a Chris Evans and Jennifer Aniston connection would be that the media keeps on speculating about Chris’ very, very close relationship with Scarlett Johansson. We’d hate to see our Jennifer embroiled in another celebrity love triangle by the tabloids again. She’s already dealt with enough fake drama thanks to her ex and Angelina Jolie.
Sure, this one might be coming out of left field, but Drake sure knows how to treat a woman well, doesn’t he? Okay, no one knows what kind of person he really is behind closed doors, but Drake and Jennifer Aniston together would surely stir up a lot of emotions in the press! I mean, who doesn’t love secretly listening to Drake’s music and singing along to all of the words? Jennifer Aniston might be a huge Hollywood star with millions in the bank, but on the inside, she really isn’t any different than the rest of us. Everyone has their little secret fantasies that may or may not involve Drake in them, right?
4 Chris Pine
As many fans know Chris Pine was in one of the most profitable movies of 2017, Wonder Woman. Needless to say, he’s on a career high right now. He’s handsome, he’s talented, he’s got a great position in the entertainment industry and best of all, he’s charming. He’s also got a great fan base thanks to his role in the last Star Trek film. With all of that being said, Chris Pine and Jennifer Aniston would be an incredibly good-looking couple together. They might not have much in common – other than the fact that they are both actors – but hey, they would have plenty of time to get to know each other.
3 Tom Hiddleston
Let’s face it: Tom Hiddleston only became a household name thanks to his high-profile with Taylor Swift. Sure, he’s starred in a handful of blockbusters, has gotten a few award show nominations along the way and is fast becoming a rising star in the business. But it’s his personal life that everyone is interested in. And while a Jennifer Aniston and Tom Hiddleston connection would drive all of T. Swift’s fans nuts, it would be fun to see these two together. Plus, Jen doesn’t need to jump from one serious relationship to the next. She has plenty of time to have fun.
2 Alexander Skarsgard
When you think of someone like Alexander Skarsgard, the first word that comes to mind is "dreamboat." He’s tall, he’s blonde, he’s got an incredible physique and an accent that makes many women weak in the knees. And plus, who wouldn’t want to spend their holidays getting to know that Skarsgard family in Stockholm? If Jennifer doesn’t want to get on board, there are plenty of other women out there who definitely will, if you know what we mean. Alexander’s single status won’t last for very long, especially with the long line of women wanting to be his plus one. Trust us.
1 Brad Pitt
At the end of the day, if there is any one man in Hollywood that would be absolutely perfect for someone like Jennifer Aniston, it would be her ex. And no, not Justin Theroux. We are talking about the true love of her life: Brad Pitt. After all, Brad and Jennifer were Hollywood’s golden couple during their prime. Some people even think that if it weren’t for Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Brad and Jen would still be together today. Watch this space. With both Brad and Jen being single at the same time right now, anything can happen. The world of tabloid magazines and gossip blogs would be forever thankful.
