Actress Jennifer Aniston is the latest Hollywood star to deplore the role of “big Marvel movies” in filmmaking, as she relayed in a Variety interview this week.

Lamenting the changing landscape of cinema, Friends star Aniston revealed her personal longing for a Meg Ryan-era comeback:

“You’re seeing what’s available out there and it’s just diminishing and diminishing in terms of, it’s big Marvel movies. Or things that I’m not just asked to do or really that interested in living in a green screen,” said Aniston.

The Gangs Of New York director, 74, told Empire:

“I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing
the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”
