Actress Aniston No 'Friend' of Telemarketing

Share this content:
There's nothing wrong with doing a little telemarketing when you're a struggling actress or a struggling anything, but don't try to tell that to former "Friend" Jennifer Aniston.

The actress this week admitted to doing some telemarketing sales when she left New York to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles. Apparently the job didn't suit her.

"I was in telemarketing, and thank God that was only two weeks," she was reported as saying. "I was awful, selling timeshares in the Poconos and upsetting people terribly and me just being the worst at it, because I just apologized profusely and hung up the phone. They see people like me and they're like, 'Oh, she's good, because she doesn't understand that it's a scam! She'll be great -- the perfect salesperson.'"
