Jennifer Aniston's New York empire isn't expanding after all.

Although The Hollywood Reporter claimed over the weekend that the "Wanderlust" actress, 42, purchased a $9 million apartment in Manhattan's Gramercy neighborhood, her rep tells Us Weekly it's not true.

Aniston herself laughed off the real estate rumor at Monday's dinner at the Museum of Modern Art for the Glamour magazine's Women of the Year Awards, where she was an honoree.

Sipping a vodka tonic at the bar, the star received congrats about her "new" Gramercy home from pals. Giggling, she exclaimed, "No!" and explained that she checked out the home (where the monthly maintenance was a reported $11,000!) but opted not to buy.

Indeed, it's not like Aniston and beau Justin Theroux are in want of more space in the Big Apple. This past spring, she spent about $8 million to purchase not one but two adjoining apartments in an Art Deco building in the West Village (near beau Theroux's old home with ex Heidi Bivens). Once renovations are complete, Aniston and Theroux, 40, will have 2,700 square feet of interior space and 900 square feet of outdoor space in the mega-duplex.

And she and Theroux appeared lovey-dovey as ever at Monday's Glamour dinner, holding hands, laughing and nuzzling throughout the meal, even posing cheek-to-cheek for a fan's snapshot.
