Jennifer Aniston has denied recent rumours that she is pregnant.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actress said "It's almost going to take away the fun from actually being able to say one day, 'I'm pregnant!'"

The star of the soon to be released 'Marley & Me' said. "Everyone will be like, 'Yeah, right.' It's the boy who cried wolf. Stop stealing my thunder!''

39-year-old Aniston said she really enjoyed playing a mother in the film.

She said ''I feel like that's in my future and I'm on the verge of it in some way – or it's something I long for." Of the film role she said "So it was great to sort of dip your toe in it.''

'Marley & Me' co-starring Owen Wilson is due to open in the United States on Christmas day which is the same day as Aniston’s ex-husband Brad Pitt sees the opening of his new release 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'.

When asked about supporters wearing "Team Aniston" shirts, the actress said "'I can see how that would be flattering. But that divide-and-conquer thing is stupid. It's just catty. I'm not catty."
