Jennifer Aniston will share credits with her co-star and friend Reese Witherspoon, as well as with The Office star Steve Carrell. 

"This role never could’ve come to me any sooner than now,” Aniston told "EW", before adding that “it’s one of the hardest jobs I’ve had. I knew I was up to the task, but then there was the excavation of all the emotions in order to create this world for this woman. All of her lifelines are falling away. I would walk out of some of those scenes feeling like a manhole cover just came off my back.”
