“If I could live in ‘Notting Hill,’ the movie, forever, I would,” Stan told Aniston. “There were a lot of those movies that were great.”

Once the subject was brought up, the two shared there mutual love for romantic comedies, and Aniston bemoaned the lack of rom-coms in modern day filmmaking. The star half-jokingly invited Stan to make one with her.

“Why do they have such a bad rap these days? ‘Cause wouldn’t it be fun to do one? Do you want to do it?” Aniston asked

“I would do one in a second with you,” Stan replied, laughing.

Although the interview wrapped shortly afterwards, the two began making very preliminary plans to pull off a rom-com they’d headline together.

“Shoot it in New York City?” Aniston asked.

“Yeah, that sounds great. They could probably write that very, very quickly,” Stan said.

“Great. We’re gonna do a rom-com,” Aniston concluded. “So exciting. We’re bringing them back.”

Fortunately for Aniston, the rom-com genre got a boost of new life with the recent release of Paramount’s “The Lost City.” The adventure rom-com, starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, earned $104 million at the U.S. box office and crossed the $180 million mark worldwide. It sounds like now is the perfect time for Aniston’s rom-com return.
