Jennifer Aniston puts in her publicity-laden 24 hours for charity

Jennifer Aniston acted on Broadway for the first time yesterday in the 6th Annual 24 Hour Plays on Broadway benefit, with proceeds to go toward arts education for needy NY city children. She joined Rosie Perez, Nia Vardalos, Anna Paquin and Liev Schrieber in lending her time and talent to the project, which involved six 10-minute plays written and performed within a day.

Actors had to bring their own props and clothing, and Aniston brought along a chef’s jacket. Her coworkers for the day praised her professionalism. Her quick performance as a single woman who has trouble dating was said to be quite convincing.

This is Aniston’s first well publicized charity stint. She quipped during a press conference this summer that “No, I’m not interested in any of that” when asked if she was curious about the war in Iraq or environmental causes, concluding “I like to just focus on me and my tabloid career.” Some people praised her self-depricating humor while others noted that it was quite revealing of Aniston’s true nature.

Last week the former Friends star purchased a $15 million home in LA right next to Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s house. It was designed in the 1970s by architect Hal Levitt and is being rebuilt. As you can see in the gallery it’s a stunning modern mansion. Aniston has been renting a two bedroom house on the beach in Malibu this summer. It is thought that she paid upwards of $30,000 a month rent.

Here are pictures of Aniston’s new home and some candids of her out in NY on 10/19. [via] and [via]

    Living well is the best revenge. With that said, she’s just a TV sit-com star living off her residuals.

    I love how people take her sarcasm as truth.

  3. Jeannified says:

    I have seen this arial shot before, and thought they said it was Courtney Cox’s house. Hmmm…

  4. Nice house, but it’s pretty big for someone who will probably never have children.

    Money is great, but without a family to love, what’s that worth?

  5. marines all the way says:

    I can tell ya I would notown that house but a ranch if I could I like that kind fo stuff, but then again Im a leo so its easy to be alone, and Im vERY VERY comfortable witht that .

    Agent, she does have those dogs of hers…Norman and Vince, ha. Besides a real family would take away from the important picture… her needs.

    “lending her time and talent”– Talent? Come on, K… we’re talking about Jennifer Aniston here.
    Too bad the audience probably can’t get back their money to see those has beens.

    All sardonicism aside, I’m sure the needy kids in New York will benefit. So a tip of the hat to Maniston.

    Bedhead, I have several friends who are single, and likely to remain so. Are you implying that their lives are of no value? That’s pretty damning. Having a family is great, but for some people it just isn’t in the cards. It’s extremely unkind-and untrue-of you to suggest that single people don’t deserve to have nice things. She’s made her fortune, so why not buy a great house? I sure as heck would if I had the $$$.

  8. millie says:

    why not move in with Courtney and David? She’s there all the time anyway. I can’t believe the big fuss about Aniston doing a 10-minute play (after CO-directing a 10 minute movie). You would think she was the only actor involved. They even intereviewed Rosie Perez.. about Aniston and how great she was. Nobody wants to know about Rosie Perez, of course. So much hype over so little talent.

  9. Mr. T says:

    Face it, Aniston got more publicity out of her divorce from whore man Pitt than she did when they were married. I dare say she may have even set Pitt man up with AJ to boost her lame career? Stranger things have happened.

  10. antiJennyPoo says:

    this news of charity is fake, rite? becuz the holly down to earth jen will never let her charity works go out to public, rite? *sarcastic*
