Jennifer Aniston will be seen in Alexandre Moors’ Iraq war drama The Yellow Birds but she does not like war movies. She told Entertainment Weekly, “War movies aren’t usually my thing. I find them very hard to watch (but) the way this script read, and the vision that Alex had— it was really
connecting into the humanity of the soldiers, the parents that are left behind waiting, counting the minutes, the loss of innocence".
“I already had an extreme amount of respect and gratitude and awe of anyone who would go and fight war, the men and women that are the heroes. “But then to actually have immersed ourselves in this story, and to really have to connect (to) some reality of what these innocent men and women are faced with — it’s unfathomable, it really is".
