A former flatmate of Friends actress Jennifer Aniston has written a novel loosely based on the star, claiming she had a nose job because she hated her Greek nose.

Nancy Balbirer's main character JANE, in her book The Underminer, OR THE BEST FRIEND WHO CASUALLY DESTROYS YOUR LIFE, is described as "a famous sitcom actress", who constantly complains about her nose and appears in a show with a group of friends who live together.

Jane has a nose job and surgical work on her hairline, according to Balbirer, who claims Aniston had her fired from her job on Friends.

Aniston's spokesman has denied the surgery suggestions adding, "(Balbirer) sounds like an opportunist."
