Jennifer Aniston and Dolly Parton struck up a close friendship while filming their new movie Dumplin together – and has learned they’ve been seeing each other long after their 9-to-5 workdays end!

“Jen and Dolly formed an unlikely bond while working on this movie,” a source told Radar. “Now, Dolly has been spending an increasing amount of time in L.A. and they’ve been hanging out and having dinners at Jen’s mansion.”

In the upcoming Netflix film, Aniston, 49, plays a former beauty queen whose plus-sized daughter wants to follow in her footsteps and enter a beauty contest of her own. Parton, 72, provided new music just for the movie, and became the former television star's bestie in the process.

“It’s not lost on Jen that Dolly is one of the biggest stars of all time, but she’s also someone Jen can talk to about anything,” the source noted.

Aniston has been strengthening her friendships since her messy divorce from Justin Theroux, and she recently planned to spend the holidays with Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda in sunny Mexico.

The Friends star has also been there for her own pals, including Sandra Bullock, who she helped out after the death of her father.

But there is always more room in Aniston's heart for someone special like Parton.

“Jen loves hearing her stories and asking for advice,” the insider revealed. “They’re now planning to hit the awards circuit together and hoping to win big for the movie."

Added the source, “But whatever happens, Jen has found a new friend for life!”
