HOLLYWOD -- According to friends close to Jennifer Aniston, the famous actress was "solicited for a rendezvous" by Eliot Spitzer in what would have been a real-life version of the 1992 movie Honeymoon in Vegas.
Five friends revealed that the 39 year-old Aniston intimated she received an early February call from Spitzer - who recently resigned as New York Governor due to his involvement with high-priced prostitutes - requesting a weekend tryst with Aniston.
"Jen told me that she got a call from somebody bragging to be rich and powerful. He said he'd pay her $65,000 because he just had to spend some time with her since Jen reminded him so much of his wife, but 20 years younger looking, like if his wife got botox too" one friend revealed.
News photos of Silda Spitzer, currently still Eliot's wife, revealed the remarkable resemblance between 1990 photos of the now 50 year-old Silda and current day Jennifer Aniston.
The Aniston revelation exposes another remarkable resemblance: that of Spitzer's misbehavior to the solicitation by Tommy Korman, the James Caan character in the Golden Globe-nominated Honeymoon in Vegas.
In Honeymoon, aging wealthy gambler Korman is infatuated by the resemblance of his deceased wife to the younger, newlywed wife of Jack Singer, Nicolas Cage's character. Korman offers to waive Singer's $65,000 gambling debt in order to have his way with Singer's wife for the weekend, obsessed with vain efforts to re-live moments with his late wife.
One caveat: Eliot Spitzer's real wife Silda is reportedly still alive, although not really having a good time.
An Aniston friend added that the actress considered, but then declined Spitzer's offer upon recalling that she had "sworn off men" after failed relationships with actors Brad Pitt and Vince Vaughn.
