Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore & Alicia Keys take the cover of Glamour

aniston11

Oh, THIS is interesting. The October issue of Glamour Magazine features Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys. The point of getting these three women into a photo shoot together is so that they can raise awareness about breast cancer, and promote their Lifetime project, Five. Five is a two-hour movie which is really five short films directed by these women on the theme of breast cancer.

But the idea of these three women in a room together… it’s fascinating. You know that both Aniston and Keys are homewreckers, right? And Demi… well, she’s just in a sucky marriage to a sucky person. Demi also looks very uncomfortable that she’s sharing the same lighting as Aniston and Keys, two younger women with much less “work”. I wonder what Alicia and Jennifer have to say to each other? Well, both of them are pretty New Age-y and “the spirit of the goddess compels me to Speak the Universal Truth”-like. The full Glamour piece is here, and here are some highlights:

Aniston is “interviewed” by Kristin Hahn, one of her closest friends, and executive producer on Five. Aniston talks about how she and Hahn got involved: “Well, about a year ago, Susan G. Komen for the Cure approached you and me with the idea. We were intrigued by the challenge of creating short stories that would defy audiences’ expectation of the subject. We wanted to balance the drama with humor and irreverence because that’s what’s helped our friends who’ve faced this get through their treatment…we wanted stories that were informative without being heavy-handed. Oh, and they needed to be brilliantly written. Other than that, our goals were small.”

Aniston on raising awareness: “Because we don’t yet have a cure, and cancer has grown 30,000 snakes out of its head. We need to go at this Medusa with all the firepower we’ve got, from research and legislation, to awareness and early detection, to support groups and compassion for everyone who walks through this. We need to show up for them, to talk to them, to not be afraid. We want people to walk away with hope and information but feel incredibly entertained. Cancer affects all of us, whether you’re a daughter, mother, sister, friend, coworker, doctor, patient. These films touch on that reality. The film I directed is called Mia, and it’s about a woman who takes her diagnosis as a death sentence and gives up—only to discover she’s gone into remission. We want people to know it is very possible to conquer breast cancer.”

The last time Aniston was “giddy”: “Putting my feet and handprints in cement in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre [on the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame]. That got me giddy! It was a milestone in my career, which was surreal because I still think I’m at the beginning of it. I remember when they told me about the honor, I thought, Really? I mean, I just did Ferris Bueller [the TV show]. I just did Leprechaun! I don’t understand! I thought, I just had a year of failures. [Laughs.] I’ve never lost that feeling of “Oh God, I hope I get this job!” I don’t want to get too used to any of this because then entitlement sets in, and that’s the kiss of death.”

Aniston on being 40, and remembering her 20s: “Being this side of 40 feels like what I should have felt being this side of 25: in my body, in my heart, happy with my life, and OK with whatever bumps in the road present themselves. Honestly, whatever angst-y times I’ve had came after fame, which we both know was after 22. When I was 22, I was having a ball! I would have nothing to say to myself. [Laughs. ] I was living in Laurel Canyon with my best friends, including you, and we were dreaming of creating things like Five.

Aniston on wearing the same bikinis year after year: “…and I’ll wear it for as many years as the strings still tie! Bathing suits now have so much hardware on them that they singe your skin. When you take your bikini off, it looks like you’ve been branded with crop circles and lightning bolts and words like Gucci!”

Aniston: “I couldn’t be in a relationship without … A human being! OK, in all seriousness, I would say I couldn’t be in a relationship without equality, generosity, integrity, spirit, kindness and humor. And awesomeness.”

Aniston on setting the record straight: “There’s not enough space in this article. Not even enough pages in this magazine! The truth is, most celebrities are doing the same things most other people are doing every day…work, have dinner, hang out with your friends when you can, try and keep up with the crazy world we’re living in and squeeze in some zzz’s. There’s not nearly as much stealing and obsessing and middle-of-the-night secret calls to ex-boyfriends and scheming and cheating [as they lead you to believe]. Most of it’s just bulls—t, however entertaining.”

Demi Moore on how she started on Twitter: “Originally, Ash and I were just playing, seeing what it did and what it meant. I’m intensely private, and I’ve openly shown annoyance at the paparazzi. That’s served in the past to create an image of me where I’m always frowning or looking angry. I saw Twitter as this opportunity to connect with people and actually show a side of myself that is much lighter. And all of a sudden people were getting to know me, and I was connecting with people. At its core Twitter is about sharing, and I think that in life we never feel better or more energized than when we’re giving to someone else.”

Demi on what makes her “giddy”: “I’m an old-school romantic, so I get giddy when Ashton shows me another way of saying “I love you”—any little thought or gesture that’s playful or sweet. We leave Post-it notes for each other; some have been sticking up for five or six years! For me, it’s the small things. The first day of filming Charlotte, Ashton sent this bouquet of soft blue flowers with a card that said, “I believe in you.” I put them in this little room that I parked myself in while we were shooting in the rest of the house, and that was the room that we shot my movie’s final scene in. “

Alicia Keys on reality singing competitions: “I used to watch American Idol a little bit. My grandmother sucked me into it, and I was like, “Why am I watching this, Nana?” Initially, I felt like it was showing people that to be an artist you’re just supposed to get on TV. But as time passed, and the industry changed, I started thinking of it as an outlet for people who otherwise wouldn’t have any opportunity to be heard. Now I think it’s a good thing. When you’re talented, you’re talented.”

Alicia calls her relationship a “blessing”: “Yes. It’s beautiful because rarely, I think, do you find a relationship where you can experience things equally. In fact, I think that’s my favorite word and the most important word when it comes to relationships: equality. And that’s what we’ve been able to find. We encourage each other equally. We’re excited for each other.”

Alicia remembers the exact moment she fell in love with Swizz: “I do remember the exact moment. If I told you, I would have to kill you, but it was something that he planned, and he planned it so beautifully and thoughtfully that in that moment I remember thinking to myself, Oh my God, I’m so in love with him.”

On baby Egypt: “My son, Egypt, makes me super giddy, especially when he laughs. His laugh makes me laugh like a maniac! I do think about [what kind of man I want him to be] a lot. He’s going to be a man in this world. It’s a beautiful blessing that I get to help raise a man. And I want to show him as much as possible.”

Why she named her kid Egypt: “ It was a time of transition. There were certain people [I was working with] who weren’t right. I had friends who weren’t right anymore. I was tired and I had overworked myself and burnt myself out. So I went to Egypt by myself. When I saw what was built there, it made me understand how powerful we are, that we can create anything. And I felt like I needed to create things that were timeless too.”

There are lots of interesting parts to the interviews (which were conducted separately, because I guess Aniston, Moore and Keys didn’t want to spend that much time together) that I didn’t get to, but you can read the whole piece if you’re interested.

My favorite moment, the part that made me LOL? It was Demi! When she was talking about Twitter and she said, “I’m intensely private, and I’ve openly shown annoyance at the paparazzi. That’s served in the past to create an image of me where I’m always frowning or looking angry. I saw Twitter as this opportunity to connect with people and actually show a side of myself that is much lighter.” Intensely private? The paparazzi took some photos of her frowning? Poor, poor baby. And now look at her – a famewhore who tweets bikini photos of herself after her husband bones randoms.

    I’m 45 and I want to be on that cover so I can look 17.
    If the names were’t on the cover I never would have guessed who they are.

  2. Liz says:

    Oh wow – Glamour really isn’t marketing to me, I find all three of these women deplorable. (well, Alicia is actually talented, but her character is questionable)

  3. laland says:

    Although I don’t condone messy relationships, “Homewrecker” is such a stupid word. No one can wreck a happy home.

  4. Kaiser says:

    Ann – I know! I didn’t recognize Alicia Keys at all. I started writing this thinking it was Zoe Saldana.

  5. Mia says:

    Holy Photoshop Batman!

    I laughed at the Demi quotes, too! If she were so intensely private, she wouldn’t have revealed herself on Twitter. She could have pretended to be anyone and interacted with real people.

    Jen’s interview was fine until her good friend decided to address the tabloid rumors about her relationships. Why was that necessary? It had absolutely nothing to do with Five. You’d think she was concerned certain segments were calling her a hypocritical homewrecker. But that can’t be right. Jen would never do something like that. /sarcasm.

  6. bitchbelying says:

    Lmao..@ Ash ‘boning randoms’ and A keys and Aniston being homeworking whores. Now every time I see Alicia and Swizz together, I know…. that they know… that well know their shady ass characters.

  7. gee says:

    I once saw a documentary that said in advertising, they will always visually place men slightly above women in a picture, and white women slightly above women of color. I seriously doubt that was a driving force here, but it’s all I can ever think about when I see a picture like this.

  8. vgdgerg says:

    Aniston doing a Lifetime movie….haha, right where she belongs.

    Also, in the 1st picture she is once again hiding more than half her face with her hair. She comes across so insecure and desperate, especially with her men and clothing choices.

    I am surprised she is actually promoting a movie without taking off her clothes!

    She knows her face is nothing special, so she usually gets naked so people ignore it.

  9. It is ME!! says:

    All of the quotes posted above are gag-inducing.

  10. Larissa says:

    Yeah the homewrecker thing is getting old, puh-leease, Stepford Wives much?

  11. lucy2 says:

    Demi, intensely private? HAHAHAHA!

    Oh Alicia, someday you are going to be so heartbroken when he treats you the same. Equality…with his ex! Anyone else think the “friends who weren’t right anymore” were the ones telling her not to mess with a married man with kids?

  12. Alex says:

    so it is okay to called some people homewrecker but when it comes to Aniston it is not okay, cause she is so innocent right. GMAFB

  13. Green_Eyes says:

    Isn’t it sad that even when doing a photo shoot for a project regarding Breast Cancer..where some women loose their hair, gain weight (or loose weight depending on treatment), their bodies are in a literal fight for the right to survive, their emotions and body image are all over the map…so WHY AIRBRUSH the HECK OUT OF THESE 3 WOMEN? Personally I would have shown it more in good taste and sisterhood to show them as they really are. Aren’t we always telling those we love they look beautiful even when they are loosing their hair or gaining the weight from the chemicals (I recall being told those things over and over again during my treatments as lb after lb racked up and hair strands to clumps were lost). If these 3 women who are beautiful before being airbrushed to some unknown versions of themselves aren’t beautiful as they are.. How are women (men also) going to believe they are truly beautiful no matter what cancer or the treatments do to them. I understand the name is Glamour and they are a fashion mag.. But if your going to cover a subject or projects regarding real life issues as cancer… Then do a total radical thing and do it from a realistic and human perspective… DON’T
    AIRBRUSH!! I bet many going thru chemo or radiation and what it does to you naturally share these emotions, and surprise GLAMOUR would sell more mags because they didnt try to cover what they see as flaws! I speak from experience as a 2x Ovarian Cancer & a bladder cancer survivor. Though never diagnosed w/ Breast cancer or thyroid cancer have had some pretty scary
    mishaps w/ biopsies. If I was going thru that again now, I wouldn’t want to look at women I believe are beautiful completely morphed into some unrealistic version of themselves because society didn’t deem their beauty as beautiful enough… All that and have to look at myself in the mirror knowing not only am I in the fight for my life, but by GLAMOURS standards I must be hideous As well. Ok maybe not because I wouldn’t give a rats behind what GLAMOUR or these 3 women said or did…. Because it’s the one actually down in the trenches giving me my treatments, cleaning up after I got wick yet again, or the women sharing w/ me what they have been thru helping me thru my path that would really matter to me.. GLAMOUR you should take a walk in those shoes for a day! Same to the 3 on the cover, then maybe they wouldn’t cave to what the industry wants society to believe beauty is.. Because it’s not 3 airbrushed to he’ll women on their cover.. It’s the people who stand up and are their while for those who are in the fight for their life..and just as they are, no brushing required!!

  14. april says:

    laland – I agree – no one can wreck a happy home. Every time you see Julia Roberts, do you think homewrecker? Or John McCain and Cindy McCain. They had an affair while he was still married. At some point you have to let it go.

  15. serena says:

    I can’t stand Aniston’s hairstyle anymore! wtf

  16. Green_Eyes says:

    John and Cindy McCain are on their own level all together.. As his first wife was fighting for her life and very I’ll when he cheated w/ Cindy. Though that was yrs ago.. And they are still together, it still speaks volumes to me that one could do this to someone during such a time.

  17. GeekChic says:

    This is totally random, but I just noticed that Demi and I have the same eye color. It’s a weird and uncommon blue-green-gray that can change dramatically depending upon the lighting and what you’re wearing. I find it annoying because I never know what to answer when someone asks my eye color, because they think I’m stupid if I say blue-green-gray. To add to the weirdness, my eyes are heterochromic, meaning that there is a golden ring around the pupil that transitions sharply into the weird blue-green-gray noncolor (I think people call those cat eyes or something?).

    Forgive the random ramble. I blame the painkillers and post-wisdom teeth extraction delirium.

  18. whitedaisy says:

    Surely with such a grave health concern like breast cancer, there are more substantive spokespersons to be found.
    Not one of these vapid women is relatable to me or my friends.

  19. Violet says:

    @Green_Eyes – I totally agree.

    @whitedaisy – You’re so right. Furthermore, I think they should’ve picked actual breast cancer survivors, like Sheryl Crow or Cynthia Nixon. These women have just as much star power plus they would’ve been able to share their personal experiences in overcoming cancer, which is far more meaningful than some shallow celebrities yapping on about things that have nothing to do with the subject.

    @april – As a matter of fact, I do think homewrecker when I think of Julia Roberts or the McCains. What Julia did was especially horrible — she got involved with a married man with a pregnant wife. Come to think of it, Julia would’ve been the perfect choice to have on the cover with Alicia Keys and Jennifer Aniston.

  20. RobN says:

    @whitedaisy, since when does every spokesperson have to be about substance? Sometimes it’s all about getting attention for a good cause and actresses are a good vehicle for that. I couldn’t be more sorry that you and your friends can’t relate to these women but you and your friends don’t have the ability to raise awareness and money and these women do.

  21. Ally says:

    @gee, wow, you’re so right & it’s awful. I will be looking out for it on magazine racks from now on.

  22. whitedaisy says:

    @RobN

    I couldn’t agree more that there is value in bringing attention and awareness to breast cancer; even with actresses. My point was, that there are women (actresses), more suitable as spokespersons, who exemplify consistently charitable behavior and superior character or as pointed out by Violet, are breast cancer survivors themselves.
    People who inspire with their behavior away from the movie set would be more relatable than this particularly superficial trio.

  23. Sue says:

    What the F*ck happened to Alicia Keys face on the cover? That was my first thought, It like they had to Photoshop the hell out of it to make the Demi and Aniston look younger and ending up messing up Alicia face to the point she doesn’t even look like herself.

  24. lucy2 says:

    I agree that none of these 3 strike me as super deep, serious people. But it’s a bit of a catch 22 to say they’re shallow because they don’t do meaningful stuff, but then when they try, say they’re too shallow to do it. I think it’s good they’re at least trying, so let’s see how it goes.

    The other 2 directors are Patty Jenkins (directed Monster) and Penelope Spheeris, who’s done a lot of stuff. Rosario Dawson, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Patricia Clarkson, and a lot of others are in the casts. The scripts must be fairly decent to attract actors like that to it.

    I would think if Cynthia, Sheryl, etc, wanted to be involved, they would be. Maybe they aren’t comfortable acting or directing something so personal to them. Either way, I’m glad that 5 women are directing, and I hope it turns out well.

  25. DetRiotgirl says:

    @geekchick oh hay girl! I have the same eye color! :)

  26. Jamie says:

    @whitedaisy

    Alicia Keys has been doing charity work for several years before her messy relationship with Swizz so lets give credit where credit is due. Her personal life has nothing to do with the causes she fights for.

    Also Alicia’s grandmother died from Breast Cancer, I’m sure this issue is close to her heart.

  27. Angela says:

    I saw the trailer for this movie. It doesn’t look bad at all and there are some familiar faces in it.

    http://weblogs.variety.com/on_the_air/2011/08/five.html

  28. Cheyenne says:

    RobN: since when does every spokesperson have to be about substance?
    ==============================================

    When it’s about a subject as serious as cancer, then the spokesperson should have some substance. And I agree that a cancer survivor would be a better spokesperson than any of those vapid twits.

  29. the other mel says:

    The cover is so Photoshopped it looks like a cartoon.

  30. Ell says:

    Sorry to read all the hate, does it really matter if it photoshopped or what they talk about as long as the shorts raise awareness? I have a close friend suffering some really life-threatening side effects from the chemo right now and I doubt very much she would give a damn about photoshopping etc.

    And it’s well known Demi and Jen are friends so I doubt they have a problem being in the same room together…jeeez.

  31. CallieTrichid says:

    Is it wrong I kind of really liked Aniston after this? If only for:

    “I’ve never lost that feeling of “Oh God, I hope I get this job!” I don’t want to get too used to any of this because then entitlement sets in, and that’s the kiss of death.”

    The whole anti-entitlement thing wins me over every time, I guess.

  32. kimm says:

    I think they are all awesome!!! Who are we to judge their decisions in life?? I hope they raise a ton of money for Breast Cancer!!

  33. e.non says:

    green eyes … actually, mccain’s first wife was seriously injured in a car accident and once he was returned from vietnam and saw her no longer hot self, he couldn’t take up with cindy fast enough. i’m sure it also helped that her daddy was a major beer distributor.

    oh, and the first wife dutifully stood by her man while he was a prisoner.

  34. Paige says:

    I just recovered from breast cancer. In fact, my POE just shot an interview of me to air in October. BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. I fretted over this as I gained weight, lost all hair and look terrible right now IMO. But I am grateful to be alive. And I WISHED! they would have used anyone other than me with the disclaimer “actor portraying…” I don’t care about your snarky comments. I am just grateful that anyone gives up their time and energy to help draw awareness to the cause. And all the while, setting themselves up for this kind of negativity. Please, if you take nothing else from their interviews or cover…take this…all women are susceptable, no family history needed. Get your mamms! Mine saved my life.

  35. Rog says:

    At least Alicia and Jennifer’s breasts are real.

    What cause is Demi campaigning for? Implant cancer research?

  36. nemera says:

    I don’t understand why Jennifer Aniston is never that articulate in live interviews. I have never ever heard her talk this way in an interview.

    hmmm makes you wonder whose words those actually are.

    But nice that they are doing this. I don’t think I’ll watch it.. but good it is out there.

  37. Andie B says:

    I LOVE Alicia Keys..Demi and Jen I can take or leave. They did go overboard with the airbrushing on that cover.

  38. Camille says:

    Aniston looks um, weird.
    What awful makeup/photoshopping they did to her face. Also- why is Anistons hair always covering most of her face in photo shoots etc? What is up with that?

    DM looks ok. And AK looks kind of horsey. Yikes.

  39. Juliesunflower says:

    @whitedaisy, couldn’t agree more. Can’t stand Aniston for toffee but she deserves some kudos for this cause – breast cancer is a terrible thing which saps the victims and brutalizes their loved ones. Anyone who champions bringing awareness to it to get treatment for it should be applauded.

  40. sandy#1 says:

    um, there is a such thing as home wrecking, if the person you are involved with is living with their mate, but what eves, and two of them home wrecked, no different than what others have done before them, if the mate didn’t leave the relationship before hooking up. deal with it, call a spade a spade. photo shopped to the max.

  41. Ell says:

    @Paige, lovely to hear your positive news, I can only imagine what you’ve been through. Hugs.

  42. 9 out 10 experts recommend says:

    I know people hate on Alicia for her relationship with Swizz. But think about it people, if the relationship crashes and burns she will make an album out of it. Songwriters love this crap to happen to them (subconsciously). Pain and heart ache sell records.

  43. Original Bee says:

    @gee I immediately noticed that Alicia was lower than them and wondered why. Now I guess I know. If the photographers/editors did that on purpose they’re deplorable.

  44. anom says:

    so photo shopped! where is aniston’s looong forehead crease? they even photo shopped the veins out of the 40+ women’s hands!

  45. tracking says:

    Aniston has supported St. Jude’s Hospital for more than a decade. Her interest in supporting cancer victims does not come out of nowhere. But haters gonna hate!

  46. Anonymous says:

    All three are awesome, hot, talented and legends on their field. All you people are haters and really sad one’s too

  47. nemera says:

    @tracking

    yep haters hate..

    and many never take note of someone supporting an issue or case for 10 years, working for that cause and bringing light to it..

    Yeah.. haters hate..

  48. Magsy says:

    Fascinating huh? Sorry I don’t share that view. These three are about as exciting on a Glamour cover as Julia Roberts, Miley Cyrus and Pamela Anderson.

  49. Anon says:

    @magsy would you prefer them to be angelina jolie , pamela anderson, and miley cyrus? Those three are more sulted together for a cover really.. because they have more in common than i’m sure you’d like to admit. Maybe you can throw in lindsay lohan to replace miley, for the hell of it to make it a perfect team.

  50. Rhiley says:

    Demi Moore is turning into jada pinkett smith with the marriage tmi. I don’t know what is more sad about her life: that she still is trying to make a career out of twitter or that she is still gushing about Ashton kutcher but totally in a way that screams, I know he cheats and I let him but at the end of the day he believes in me.

  51. orion70 says:

    @Paige: fellow breast cancer lady here, just a couple months now past my last chemo and radiation treatments (fingers crossed).

    Glad to see that you brought up one of the unexpected side-effects of BC chemo-the bloody weight GAIN ! Never would have even occurred to me that something like that was even possible during chemo, but sure enough, between the steroids and the particular chemo cocktail some women get, this is apparently a common side effect .

    Speaking only for myself. I don’t really care all that much if anyone is airbrushed. I liked reading trashy mags and as I started to come around a bit, fashion and make up etc etc were something I enjoyed.

    Hell, this crap strips away SO much of your femininity that it can be welcome. I’ve got a nasty scar across the right side of my chest, lost all my hair (but it’s growing back!!), lost my fingernails and gained a few pounds. Even my face seemed to change appearance there for a while, especially with my eyelashes gone. Don’t even get me started on the hormone suppressing medication.

    All that said, I’m not sure whether I’ll check out this film or not. I’m a bit wary of breast cancer portrayals, some can be so inaccurate, and at times (especially leading into October), it all becomes pretty overwhelming.

    One thing I do think they missed the opportunity to do in this article is to stress the need again for being on top of this, no matter what your age. There are an alarming number of younger women being diagnosed with breast cancer. I was not yet at an age where I was supposed to get mammograms, even with my family history. And Demi’s comment that she never thought about it or what not, was kind of surprising, as she for sure should be at an age where she’s getting checked out regularly.

  52. siska says:

    love jen!! she is a really a humble person..never afraid to point that she act in the some fluffer movie and really grateful for still working..not like someone who keep blabber about quit the job cause they so high up..

  53. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    Siska, Jen SHOULD be grafeful she is still working, while some can blabber about quitting an industry that does NOT want HER to quit. So she marches on WITH a large family in tow and a supportive partner all the while thankful.

    Demand is different when one is being IN demand and one is grateful to STILL be working. That’s not humbleness, that’s taking what’s left of the leftovers. Funny, I have not heard of someone doing a part that JA turned down, but have when it comes to AJ. Now we know she can write, produce and direct her OWN movies too. NO NEED TO COMPARE. IT CAN’T BE DONE. Hollywood is big enough for both women, their paths won’t cross. Travelling in different circles and all, not vying for the same parts. All is happy and well.

  54. bogie says:

    Aniston is in this so she can talk about herself. I mean after the paragraph about breast cancer she went on about the rumors about her. I think Demi cares, but is sad her limelight has faded out. Alicia Keys is talented, good looking , young, has the family she wants, is a multi-millionaire, and has broken Grammy records. She does not need to fake this stuff for attention. She has been working to eliminate AIDS in Africa for 4 years or so now. Well before Swizz. What proof is there she is a homewrecker. The guy left his marriage and met someone new. What is so strange is that if he really left his wifer for Alicia, would not he have just gotten with Keys years ago. Keys has been in the business for a decade…Swizz longer…and they worked together in her early years. Accusing people of homewrecking when there is no proof and nothing adds up just gets ooolllddd. Let it go. People do not even go after real homewreckers like John Edwards so hard. Difference between Keys and Aniston…is Keys and Swizz denied homewrecking…Aniston and Theroux have said nothing.

  55. Kara Ann says:

    Some posters really have lost the “thread” of this thread! This is about cancer. This is a serious disease that has affected likely everyone posting on this board in one fashion or another. Just don’t, don’t make it all about Jennifer Anniston please. This is too serious for you to get in whatever comments you can about vapid/boring/sexless/old bullsh*t! I just…how does tearing down JA or Alicia Keyes become more important to you then being grateful for people (even if it’s people you don’t like) trying to bring attention to a cause? I don’t get it and I hope I never do!

    Paige & Green Eyes, I am very sorry to hear of both of your diagnosis and, no doubt, associated suffering. It is very inspirational for me to know that you have survived so much. I fear very much that I or one of my sisters will eventually be diagnosed with some form of this disease. It is very strong is my family line (from both sides).

    At any rate, hope I’m not coming across as too touchy and irritable but today has been the first real deal of my “quit smoking for life” campaign and I’m a little on the ornery side! For me, this article just confirm for me how important this decision could be for me. Also, both of your posts have given me extra incentive. Thank you!

  56. bee says:

    Aniston is a homewrecker, Alicia is a homewrecker and La Jolie is not?! You people and your double standards!

    I agree with all those people who said it’s impossible to wreck a happy home. Let the women be happy for goodness sake!

  57. Green_Eyes says:

    @ Paige, As a fellow survivor I wish you many many more Birthdays sweetie. I understand how you feel, seems we had the same reaction to treatment. Hang in there sweetie. You have people you will never meet but whose lives you’ve touched cheering you on. I am officially cancer free since 1999. I kicked ovarian cancers ass twice and bladder cancer. I’m telling you this sweetie only to let you know on your darkest days ( and I know they are there) know that your not alone others have been there, understand, and have come out stronger. I hope I don’t offend you if I say your in my prayers… Anne I send you loving hugs in sisterhood,

    @ Kara Ann thank you sweetie and I congratulate you on ypur decision to quit smoking. Like you I have several illnesses that are genetic and ramped in our family lol.. I seemed to have been a magnet for them. I have never smoked but I have been on oxygen since 1999 at the age of 39 due to Sarcoidosis and Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease Complications. After kicking cancers ass three times.. Any thing else is a piece of cake. I’m not going to wish you luck.. I’m going to say I believe in you..your will and determination. You took the first step.. Just as when fighting these illnesses our care and treatments start w/ our first steps… Each day is another step before you know it you’ve walked 365 steps… To some that may not seem like much..but when your taking preventive measures or fighting for your life 365 days are the hardest you will have walked and looking back you will see those 365 steps made you stronger and you survived them. I watched my father give up smoking after 45 yrs so I say yes on that 365th step you are a survivor and stronger..even wiser because you are doing it as prevention. That doesn’t mean ypur fight will be over…each day is a step..a new unknown (just like a survivor each day is a step and an unknown). But I am proud of your decision. At 46 I have had over 90 operations, too many illnesses to list and new conditions due to complications from illnesses. I have a condition called NMS so I can no longer have any anesthesia or locals of any kind or I will go back into a coma but odds are next ome I won’t come out…not that my lungs could handle another one, I would be on a ventilator if I survive the rest of my life..but that’s not even an option anymore. Doing a simple CAT scan for yet another hernia from my ostomy (no bladder), the scan picked up tumors in mynleft kidney and a partially collapsed left lung due to blockage by tumors that are not sarcoidosis (shows up differently). I can’t have any biopsies to see what they are nor can i have them removed as I can’t have locals so no treatment..since they can’t tell for sure what they are up against. I refuse to believe it’s cancer again, but if i am proven wrong I will still
    fight each day and stay strong it’s what I have done all my life. I don’t know any other way. If I don’t stay strong willed and positive it will win and possibly take over my body.. I already have 4 family members fighting forntheir lives to the C word at this time..I am not allowing myself to go there. We all come to roadblocks in Life..the fact that your fighting to quit before you hit a roadblock is very commendable… Here’s to your future and celebrating that 365th step..and a yr smoke free…. One day (step) at a time! Much love to you and many blessings.. Same to @ Paige.. Proud of both of you!

    Sorry so long but no other place or way I knew of to speak to Paige or Kara Ann and it really wasn’t off topic…

    Alicia looks DREADFUL! She is not photogenic, even with photoshop.

    I applaud Jennifer for expanding herself to seeing what other people are going through in life.

    He interview was REALLY GOOD, completly unexpected from her.

    However…why did the shop her to look like Rachel from Friends at about season 8/9?? How is that even possible, wasn’t that 10 years ago or something?

  59. Carolyn says:

    Cancer now touches so many of us. I hope a real cure is found soon instead of empty hopes from research companies.

  60. Maritza says:

    They all look like themselves minus the wrinkles but that is expected, magazines love to photoshop. Lovely photo cover.

  61. LAK says:

    @nemera 37; i couldn’t agree more. She’s not that articulate in live interviews. methinks her Publicist wrote those words. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t echo the sentiments but no way is she that articulate.

    ps;- i interned at a celebrity PR office, and talk about emperor’s new clothing..LOL. With the possible exception of maybe two clients, we always wrote their print ‘Interviews’ :) )

  62. clare says:

    Ladies, get your vitamin D levels checked!
    I wish they were publicizing the fact that vitamin D3 helps prevent and can reverse cancer!
    This has been known for many years. Sadly, cancer drugs make more money than a vitamin supplement.

  63. Munkey says:

    @Kara Ann: Excellent post. I watched breast cancer consume my aunt, so I’m personally grateful to anyone who tries to bring awareness to such an important and worthy cause.

    @Paige and Green_Eyes: Congratulations to both of you for beating this terrible disease, and many prayers for a long and wonderful life ahead!

  64. SandyDee says:

    I find it hilarious that people still fall for Jennifer Aniston’s ‘act’ and faux ‘humility’. Seriously what do you expect her to say? I am the best and I deserve it all? Hello Of course she is going to be nice, put on a front. To Anon actually Aniston, Hilton, Spears and Lohan would make a better cover as they are the same ilk.

  65. original kate says:

    “I’m intensely private”

    BWAH ha ha ha ha! oh, wait…is demi serious? never mind.

  66. Nev says:

    we all have problems with judging people who we’ve never spoken too.ever.

  67. smh says:

    aww, all the has-beens together. ok i kid, Alicia is still relevant (and by far the most talented and beautiful of them all)

  68. corey says:

    I’m surprised Aniston is in this project considering her heavy tobacco use, big hits on the bong and over tanning. This has got to be a joke right? I think she’s down a quart on her “smart water”.

  69. Chloe says:

    Thank you, Jennifer Aniston, for continuing to set the record straight. It never ceases to be relevant, especially in the context of breast cancer.

    I’m sure everyone needed to hear your thoughts on the “middle-of-the-night secret calls to ex-boyfriends” yet again.

    edit: Seriously, at this point I’m beginning to think she’s just dumb.

  70. orion70 says:

    Clare, they are still doing studies and clinical trials with vitamin D-in fact they were doing one at the hospital where I received my cancer treatment.

    They are seeing benefits in including this in treatment protocol, however your wide sweeping claim that this is a full-on substitute for cancer drugs (I assume you mean chemo)due to some drug company conspiracy or some sort, is dangerous. People are free to choose their own course of treatment, but I wouldn’t want to see someone shirk available treatments because of something they happened upon on the web.

  71. Kara Ann says:

    Green Eyes,

    In case you check back, thanks for the vote of confidence. I’m still trying but I really needed that this morning! Mornings (and the ritual coffee/cig thing is HAAARRRDD)!

    Best wishes to all the survivors.

  72. Grace says:

    Alicia looks… different on that cover, but kudos to them for doing this. Best wishes to all the BC survivors out there as well as those battling the disease.

  73. Green_Eyes says:

    @Kara Ann, I’m glad you saw it then sweetie.. :) , and I totally agree Best Wishes to All the Survivors….

  74. rosalee says:

    My mother had breast cancer, she was in remission for a number of years and then it came roaring back. Anyone who takes time to canvas, to fundraise, to raise awareness, to donate time, energy and money does it for my mother, my sisters, my friends and me. So thank you and best wishes to all who are involved in the “fight” and for those of you who are in treatment..a big hug and kiss and may the Creator watch over you.

  75. John Wayne Lives says:

    @GeekChic… my husband has those eyes :) I think it’s beautiful. And I bet your SO can tell your mood by them.
    @gee…Im gonna see that now, every time i look at a magazine, I know it.

    and wow on the phototshopping. just wow.
    I bet this shoot was hilarious, and in the non-intentional way. I can just see an afternoon of “kiss-kiss, omg you look sooo beautiful!” “no, YOU look so beautiful!” “omg I am soo happy with my man” “omg me too” “Well I’m really the happiest I’ve ever been” “Oh me too, so happy” “god, we’re so fabulous!”

  76. Victoria says:

    Homewrecking Keyes is out of pocket. But what goes around comes around.

    Meanwhile, these women’s top lips are so thin, they could have added the fat from whatever part of their body has it, and added it to their lips during Photoshop sessions. I know people can’t help having thin lips, but damn. That was my very vain moment of the year. I allow myself such an absurdity annually. LOL.

  77. kris says:

    Whose nose is Jennifer wearing????? It doesnt look a thing like her. This much photoshopping should be a crime!!

  78. Paige says:

    WOW! I don’t know why but I felt compelled to read more comments on this issue. How wonderful to get here and read all of the sweet, encouraging comments to me!! And the HUGS! Thank you so much for that chickees! You will never know how much that brightened my day. Here’s to all of you that have beaten the dreaded Big C! We certainly are a sisterhood. I am greateful to be wished well by sweet girls like you all. LOVES!
