Jennifer Aniston: Shut Your Trap, Dad!
Jennifer Aniston's father John Aniston (Victor, Days of our Lives) told a family dinner, including Jen: “If it wasn’t for me, Jenny wouldn’t have a movie career today!”

Confides my Aniston insider: “Jen exploded, screaming, ‘You think I owe you my career because you did a favor to someone and gave me one lousy script? Let it go – stop taking credit!’ Then she stormed out as John hung his head!”

For the record, the story’s TRUE – John did give Jen a script written in the mid-’90s by a fellow Days actress, which got made into big-screen rom-com Picture Perfect, Jen’s breakout movie role.

“John’s proud he helped her to movie stardom,” said the source, “but she’s had it with him throwing it in her face. She called Daddy next day and made him vow to NEVER take credit again. John reluctantly agreed.”

Actress Anne Kirkbride, who played the long-standing character for 42 years, died in January from cancer. Stuart said that her family had been consulted closely on the storyline.

It was revealed earlier this week that Dierdre will be haunt the Rovers Return pub and other Coronation Street residents after they learn of her sudden death.
