Jennifer Aniston wants to change up her red carpet style, dye her hair dark brown

Ugh, we have even more of Jennifer “Did You Know I Was Married To Brad Pitt?” Aniston’s InStyle cover story for the March issue. A few days ago, we had the early excerpts – of course she mentioned Brad, and how it’s totally a misconception that they’re in some kind of “feud” and that it’s all just a media conspiracy for profit. She also discussed Justin Theroux and how she totally did NOT change her style when they got together. Speaking of that exact thing, she also says she does want to change her style now that she’s with Justin. And of course, she discusses her diet and exercise plan.

Changing her style: “On the red carpet, it’s time for me to start doing something different. I play it very safe because I just want to be comfortable … if I could wear a jersey tank that went down to the floor, I would.”

Did she mention her hair yet? Here we go. “I’ve been thinking about dyeing my hair a dark brown. I feel it would be healthier.”

Justin’s style: ”He has great style. It’s very specific, and it has been his style forever. Has it influenced mine? No, but I know people say it has.”

Workouts: “I work out almost every day, at least five or six days a week. I do 40 minutes of cardio: spinning, running, the elliptical, or a combination of all three. Then I do Pilates one day a week, and I do yoga in addition to that, three days a week. I try to mix it up.”

Traveling workouts: “I take 8 pound weights with me whenever I’m staying in a hotel. It’s always good to do arm exercises when you’re watching television or talking on the phone. I also love to stretch before I go to bed, and usually throw in a couple of sit-ups.”

Diet: “Most of the time I eat things like salmon or other fish, quinoa, lentils, and green vegetables. You’re told to avoid fried food, but I don’t always. I had Mexican the other night and ate everything you can imagine! I also take Omega Cure liquid fish oil and resveratrol, which is supposed to be good for your heart.”

[From Radar & People Mag]

I’m not going to complain too much about these interview excerpts, mostly because she’s talking about stuff I wish she had been doing for years. She would look GREAT if she gave up the Real Housewife blonde and went for a rich brunette – it would make her eyes pop, and I think it would make her look younger too. I’d also love to see her change up her red carpet style. I get tired of her minidresses and LBDs. I know she’d be more comfortable in jeans and flip-flops (I’m that way too), but for a supposed “style icon” she rarely takes any fashion risks, and she rarely dresses in a way that compliments her figure in a classy way.

    Weight gain on Aniston makes her look younger.
    Am I the only one that noticed that?

    • Camille says:

      She looks really good. She knows how to keep balance. Being skinny over 40 doesn’t work. Look at Demi, Courtney and others.

      • Capella says:

        So true! Some actresses are so skinny scary, especially when the veins on their forearms are popping out. A serious sign of malnutrition, and self-mutilation.

        I think someone had said it best: with age in front of the camera, you need to pick, either face or body. You want to be skinny for the camera, your face will be paying for it and you will need a lot of needles and surgeries to maintain it. If you are at a healthy weight, your face will age beautifully and keeps a fresh look.

        Just look at Meryl Streep.

    • Ailine says:

      That’s what some of these celebs don’t understand, you don’t need all the surgeries if you put on a little bit of weight as you age. Like as soon as you get skeleton face. Jennifer A has inherited good genes though; she’s always looked good as she ages.

      • gogreek says:

        She would be beautiful and fresh if she would GO GREEK and be true to her heritage and stop doing the California blond/blue eyed thing. she has brown eyes and brown hair naturally and she could totally work it…now that would be FRESH! especially with her new cutie Justin, they would match very well. I love them together, btw

      • Wendy says:

        Just thought I would point out that there are more than a few blond blued Greeks (and Italians, and Turks and Egyptians, Lebanese and so on). Using “going greek” to imply dark haired and dark eyed is more than a little inexact.

      • Capella says:

        Over here! Blonde-blue-eyed Mediterranean.

        That Alexander had left a drop of blonde in our gene pool for generations :)

      • Wendy says:

        It think it’s more like the repeated North African (Moorish) invasions diluted what was probably a much blonder population at one time. My mediterranean husband is blond with blue eyes and that trait where he’s from is attributed to a Greek colony on his island 2000 years ago. They were blue eyed blonds.

      • Capella says:

        @Wendy – I take after my Egyptian grandmother (very pale-skinned, blonde, blue-eyed), whose family is a direct descendant from Alexander. My whole family is brown-eyed-hair-and-skin. I’m the only “black-sheep” in the litter ;)

      • gogreek says:

        I should have been more specific in addressing my comment because she has natural brown eyes and brown hair and shouldn’t fake that out for greater celebrity! I’m certainly not knocking any of the natural blue eyed blonds out there!

      • Carolyn says:

        Greek Jen has brown eyes. Google early photos of her. She has morphed into American Barbie over the years. She’s exercised very hard and had a lot of surgery/treatments to look the way she does. Sounds like she’s even bored with herself if she’s wanting to go to the dark side (hair colouring). Even still, her interviews are god-awfuly boring zzzz…..if someone only has hair/ exercise/clothes to discuss then they really don’t have a lot to say.

      • Alexis says:

        I don’t think the writer was saying that there are no blond Greeks. His/her point was probably that most Greeks are dark haired/eyed, and so is Jen, and that she should be proud of her natural looks and heritage and try rocking that for a change.

      • Heine says:

        There are pictures of her as a young person with clearly blue eyes. It’s a weird misconception that her eyes are really brown.

    • Capella says:

      It’s true.

      I find this magazine item perfect for a fashion magazine content.

      Jen’s face is one of those who have a “young freshness” look about them. Like her co-star Jason Bateman. They may get old, but they will always have a young look about them :)

      • JuliaDomna says:

        “I take after my Egyptian grandmother (very pale-skinned, blonde, blue-eyed), whose family is a direct descendant from Alexander.”

        ^ That made me laugh for days!

      • Capella says:

        What exactly?

        Check your history and facts first before answering. And laughing for days because of something that was written only a few hours ago, is already a clear sign of your limited grasp of history.

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        @JuliaDomna
        Historically Alexander was noted as being of “fair color”, and having one blue, and one brown eye. He left no direct heirs, however, his extended family was quite diverse, and large enough to carry on his “lineage”. Even with all of the assassinations. ;)

        One could very well trace their lineage to Alexander through the many ancient written texts about his life, and all who surrounded him. Greek history is vast, and the writings don’t begin or end with Alexander alone.

        The fact that ancient Greek writing is considered to be the seat of modern western writing, lends much credence to the written histories of Alexander. Though he was the subject of much “theatrical” writing, the truth of his life can be found in texts written as historical fact. If there were to be any confusion that would be the fault of the readers inability to separate fact from fiction.

      • Capella says:

        @aprayerforthewildatheart

        As always, you impress me with your poise and your knowledge of all things history. :)

        Most of the time people mistake being descendant from Alexander’s lign as highbrow. Which is not. We are legions. The only note to our common heritage, is when a fair of coloring child is borne into a mostly “brown” family. Brown skin, brown eyes, brown hair.

        It’s Friday night, so here’s to you! Cheers ;)

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        Capella
        Thank you for the kind words, I have my days. lol!
        Cheers to you as well! *clink*

  2. Asli says:

    I tried imagining Jen with dark brown hair and I think it could actually work. She’s looked like Rachel from Friends for God knows how long. Time to mix it up.

  3. Marjalane says:

    She looked great in Horrible Bosses with dark hair! (and just think how edgy it would look with her and Justin’s matchy-matchy outfits)

  4. OriginalTiffany says:

    I’d like to see her with her real eye AND hair color!
    I am watching The Switch right now on Netflix. She is just Rachel over and over and over.
    Yawn for that alone. She acts the same, looks the same in every movie and in personal life.

  5. spinner says:

    She looks great & she is harmless. I would like to see her in a rich chestnut hair color…not too dark. She would look fabulous.

  6. mln76 says:

    What a vapid woman. I mean isn’t there anything she could think of to talk about that’s vaguely interesting. Does she read books, or a newspaper once in a while? I guess the jokes on us though because her brand of insipid sells.
    Oh and I love that she subtly disassociates from her natural hair color by saying she’ll dye it brown.

    • Wendy says:

      She’s already said she has a few grey hairs, so yeah… she would dye it brown. Not to mention avoiding the trailer trash 4 inch roots look…

      • hstl1 says:

        I have to split hairs here. I have gone to Jen’s colorist for the past 6 years and he is known for his blondes. Foil highlights create the root look if you don’t keep it up.

        I recently switched it up and started having my hair done by someone else and I have that ombre look now that is very popular. But, I am more Olivia Wilde and NOT Drew Barrymore whose hair looks awful. The upkeep is almost zero, just cover the gray hair!

        I think it’s great that Jen wants to modernize her look. You are a slave to foil highlights. And FYI, my hair does not look trailer trash which I despise.

      • HadleyB says:

        that maybe why she’s more blonde, grey hair. It’s easier to hide with highlights than straight color and outgrowth. You will see is asap in 10 ten days.. where with highlights even if they grow out you don’t see them or notice them mixed in.

        Just a thought, as it’s tricky when you start going grey…who knows how grey/silver she is? Maybe a lot around her face where people normally start to go grey at and then you have to hide the grey AND touch up the roots and add depth to all make it seem more natural.

        It’s a pain in the ass being a girl sometimes.

    • Cerulean says:

      Soooooo true. Does she ever sound like a real woman and not a teenager. Her interviews are never substantial.

      Though a change would do her good. I have to admit that her little weight gain suits her. At least the bitch eats. I’m so tired of boney starving sickly actresses. I can at least believe she enjoys solid foods and she looks healthy. She also seems to be relaxing more.

      But I’ll never think much of her acting, PR stunts, movies and fashion sense.

    • lucy2 says:

      Well, it is an Instyle interview, not Newsweek. Instyle isn’t exactly in depth.

      • mln76 says:

        Oh please she’s never done an interview where she doesn’t talk about her hair and makeup, her love life, exercise, then hair and makeup again…Remember when she claimed she took a huge risk by not wearing mascara in one of her movies?

        This woman is about as deep as a puddle in a desert.

      • lucy2 says:

        I don’t think she’s a terribly deep person either (but who really cares, she’s an actress, not running for President) but was simply making the point that if you’re looking for some deep interview about books or world events or whatever, Instyle is not the place for it. It’s fashion and beauty stuff, and that’s about all they have the celebs discuss in it.

      • mln76 says:

        @lucy2 I got your point….Her particular brand of insipid still grates on my nerves. If it were just this one interview I’d say whatever but every few months she comes out with exactly the same type of stuff, and I’ve read In Style before not every interview is this lame. Last time she did a whole interview about tinting her eyelashes, before that it was how she made a huge risk by not wearing mascara. Still I admit it works she sells magazine and there is a brigade of women out there that worship the attainability of her success.

      • Elle says:

        min76 – why do you bother to read about JA, I certainly wouldn’t bother if I found somebody insipid. And spend so much time writing post after post….odd.

    • Alix says:

      One of the dullest celebrities out there. If it weren’t for her marriage blowing up and the ensuing scandal, she’d be as high-profile today as David Schwimmer.

    • blonde on the dock says:

      @Mln she’s on the cover of a fashion magazine. They’re asking her fluffy questions and she’s simply answering them. How does that make her vapid? Since when are actors obligated to share their personal lives or opinions? You obviously find something interesting about her. You are on every thread.

      • mln76 says:

        You are right. Which is why I said in my first comment she knows what sells. Whether it’s out of our cultures’ celebration of mediocrity or out of my fascination with our culture’s celebration with mediocrity she’s got me.

      • JudyJudyJudy says:

        well said. I prefer 1 type of PR over another but I am savvy enough to know it is ALL PR. If you really take any of these people seriously you are sort of silly (unless you are a pr person, of course. So knocking Jen for being boring and doing it over and over is sort of goofy.

    • Lindsay says:

      Min 76: Are you saying you read celeb gossip in the hopes of reading something “deep”? Maybe you should read a book if that is what you are looking for. Let’s not kid ourselves, we all enjoy reading things of the trivial variety (why else would we all be here if not?) And anyway, Jen is talking about the things that are relevant to her. I don’t find talk about exercise and diet and style to be “vapid”, they are the things we think about and do every single day and that we all have in common. It’s about making the best out “the everyday” which I don’t think is dumb at all. End rant :)

      ANd yes, if you are blonde (natural or otherwise) and you want brown hair (natural or otherwise) you usually need to dye it to get it that color… unless you want to wait however long for it to grow out (which looks gross, so…)

  7. dena says:

    I think she’d look beautiful with a rich brown colour. So sick of her blonde, it’s played out.

  8. mummy says:

    I like her blonde highlights. It brings light to her face.

  9. Roma says:

    Is it her fault that interviewers ask her about Brad? I read the same articles and I just don’t see her being focused on it.

    I’ve noticed the past few months that I end up defending every JA post just because people seem to mean girl her so much.

    • Kara says:

      They didn’t ask her about him….she herself brought up the triangle in an answer to a question having nothing to do with him.

      • anonymous says:

        You are so right, the interviewer did not ask about Brad Pitt, she is the one who insinuated him into the interview, JA claims that she have moved on is in a good place and relationship. But her actions say different. Pitt is still on her mind, JA still cares about him.

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        The interviewer asked about “the triangle” and she said “Which one? There are so many.” Why did she bring up Brad and the JA/BP/AJ triangle? Because the other triangle is the JA/JT/HB one, and in THAT triangle she and Justin play the “villains”. Plus she gets to remind people that, although she’s moved on, she used to be married to BRAD PITT.

        She’s not dumb when it comes to PR that was a great dodge. Well played Jen. ;)

        She’ll never wear the “homewrecker” label (true or not), her good girl/victim image couldn’t take it, and she knows it.

    • Miffits says:

      Kinda. She holds enough clout to select what’s asked and what’s not. There are so many interviews where you read of the meddling publicist stepping in and moving the questions in a different direction. Oddly, you never get that with Aniston.

  10. considerit says:

    it’s nice to see an actress with a pair of legs with which she could actually walk a few blocks without collapsing. ladies: atrophy is a bitch.

  11. toto says:

    Dumb life she have no matter what money she got or how young she looks ..

    yoga ,diet ,hair ,men .

    i am proud to be a woman but not the kind of Jennifer aniston .
    any hard working woman self made educated woman would know, no matter how money we earn there is always something new we want to learn and get more involve & evolve …..

    when i was young there was a very pretty old lady ,i told mom how come you r same age but she looks way younger ,,, mom answered me :she does not care for the things the way we do, she does not think much or worry much she takes care of herself very well and does not want anything to bother her she lives more for herself and less for others… when i see aniston and how good she looks ,,,i remember our old lady.

  12. Wendy says:

    God, can’t you see it? She dyes her hair chestnut brown and what’s the first thing she’ll be accused of? Copying you know who.

  13. texasmom says:

    Who the hell cares????? (Not me, apparently!)

  14. Zelda says:

    Good. She has looked the same since 2001.

  15. Cathy says:

    She looks good just the way she is, but coloring her hair darker might be interesting.

  16. Nev says:

    -yes, wear the jersey dress…the nineties are coming back..good move.

    -yes, dye your hair brown…it will take years off and give some mystery…also you will look less beverley hills housewife.

  17. Jayna says:

    She has never said she is a style icon. She has a clean lines, simplistic look. I love the idea of darker hair, but needs to put a little bit of caramel highlights in it or it will be too harsh.

  18. strawberrygirl says:

    Nothing she ever says or does will please everyone. I honestly don’t know why people tear her down so much, I’ve always thought she seemed perfectly nice and normal. How is she dumb? She just answers the questions they ask her. She’s an actress, if you are looking for some intelligent discussion then go read The Economist.

  19. Feebee says:

    Why talk about it? If you’re going to do it just do it. We don’t need a few months to prepare.

    I like to give people the benefit of the doubt but she’s really pushing it. EVERY interview has the depth of a petrie dish. I’m concluding that this is because that’s the depth of the subject. That’s really all there is. How can that be with all she has/can experience in life?

  20. Dhavy says:

    I guess she needs to draw attention to her physique (what a surprise, eye roll) so people won’t notice how bad her acting is. Nice move Rachel, I mean Jennifer

  21. Suze says:

    She has been a brunette and it absolutely, 100% suits her. Makes her look interesting and beautiful, not just generically pretty.

    I think she is aging well. I would like to see her something other than a mini dress, but she still looks good in those, too.

  22. Kara says:

    She should be thankful for the triangle….it made her the victim and poster girl for bitter & plain women everywhere!

    She has built her whole film career on the image of the scorned innocent woman.

    When in fact she is an incredibly boring old gal with nothing in her life to talk about but hair, exercise and clothes. Shallow and fake.

  23. Ava says:

    It must be embarrassing for her to be 43 years old and have done nothing in her life worthwhile. No great trips or adventures, no great films.

    When she dies all people will remember about her was her hair, Friends and Brad Pitt’s EX wife. Sad

    • JudyJudyJudy says:

      “Friends” was great and she was one of the key reasons and I loved her in “The Good Girl”. Maybe she can go back to be a character actress someday so I can love her work again. But she is hugely popular or there would be all this chatter.

    • RobN says:

      Says the chick who spends her days making fun of other people on the internet…

    • Capella says:

      My only true wish is to be just as embarrassing at 43 as she is.

      A self-made millionaire, who owns houses all over the place, in different countries. Who regularly contributes money to Children’s hospitals. Who has had the same close friends who stand for her publicly (unlike other actresses,hmm) for decades. And to feel good about my own fit self, and lead the life I chose to.

      And yeah, I wish to embarrassingly drink margaritas all day long, while sunning my embarrassing self near a 5-star Mexican pool!

      Wouldn’t that be terrible ;)

      • anne christoff says:

        An obscenely overpaid “actress” with no memorable films, who commanded a million dollars per episode for the mindless “Friends” series, who has the maturity of a small town prom queen, no education, no serious man in her life (the current one is, as if anyone here needs telling, not into her meaningfully at all).

        With her money and clout, why does she not get into producing great, serious, intellectual movies as used to be produced, back in the 30s and 40s and once again in the 70s? Why not do something of substance?

        The best she could do is retire for a while and GO TO COLLEGE and understand that the unexamined life is not worth living (as a classic Greek once famously said)

        As for the houses….She has real estate all over (buy sell buy sell buy sell)…and what is it bringing her? I am all for wealth (made in ways that I must respect and admire, that is) but some of this is excessive and therefore, sad

      • JudyJudyJudy says:

        Capella – I hear that!!:-)

      • Capella says:

        Hmm, Anne Christoff, first, breathe girl.

        Second, well you need to breathe some more. Because, wow! You went a tad overboard with your rebuttal.

        Third, to be fair, being overpaid applies to so many in Hollywood, just so many! Not just movie stars, and TV stars, but also including game show hosts, and reality tv stars.

        Fourth, do not diss on Friends girl!! That show is simply amazing after a long-day’s work. Well written, fast-paced, and funny.
        4a) Let’s not forget that it is one of the first shows on primetime to actually show single women battling out for a condom. Meaning, single women are responsible, and there could be no love when no glove available.

        Fifth, please do not forget, that said show, Friends, there are 5 other cast members who got paid, the EXACT same amount per show, as well as residuals. That cast was ground-breaking in equal pay for men AND WOMEN.

        See, Ms. Aniston was part of all that. And that is why we like her. Yeah, her past rom coms are shitty, but we still like her no bull attitude.

        And as a Ms. Aniston fan, I am mature enough and open-minded enough to allow myself to like other actresses, as well as Ms. Aniston. There is no one choice to be made; but my personal likeness and preferences to give them all equal opportunity to charm me.

        Hope you had time to breathe! This is after all, a gossip site ;)

  24. ??? says:

    The girl behind her is more my type. Now that’s sexy.

  25. HadleyB says:

    Depends on how dark. When you are older, usually darker hair makes you look older which is why women usually get highlights — it softens the wrinkles on your face ( yes TOO blonde and you look horrid).

    if it’s not too dark, not a flat color with some highlights then yes…

    Her style IS classic, simple – Calvin Klein-ish, .simple clean lines and I don’t a problem with that … maybe on the red carpet she could add more color here and there but why should she try being someone she isn’t?

    First everyone slams her for wearing the same shit for 10 years and call her style boring and to change it up, then you guys slam her when she does change it saying she copies everyone.

    There is only so much fashion to go around, chances are we are all copying someone somewhere.. we all have jeans, boots, tshirts, dresses etc.. unless she wears couture no one will be one of a kind.

  26. lucy2 says:

    I like the blonde highlights she usually has, but I think the dark hair would look good. A rich dark though.

    Who sees her as a “style icon”? I generally like her red carpet style because it’s simple and classic, but I wouldn’t say that makes her a style icon. And her everyday clothes seem pretty normal and casual.

  27. lisa says:

    Why in the world is it news worthy to dye you hair. Most celebs do it all the time. No big fan-fair they just do it and nothing said.

    The interview is not interesting. I think the big promoting for the film was in the fall. then they moved it back to February. This kind of knocked the Punch out of the big build up to the film. This cover seems to be a OH we need a mag interview. Kind of last minute. She has not been on a big named cover in a while. I don’t know when she was last on a Vogue or Vanity Fair or such.. not sure why but she is doing more smaller covers. Which is funny when you consider the actresses that are making those other covers.. multiple time.

    My only snark.. was her calling him “my boyfriend” I just thought that was a bit too ummmm not sure..

    ok just a little snark.. no hate.

  28. Maria says:

    she is average looking in candid shots..but wow on magazine covers. amazing what the right camera angle and lighting can do! don’t see her with a harsh, dark color, but i could see a brown with soft highlights?… and one of the greates beauties of all time said ‘add 5 lbs for every decade’… she has a point….in your twenties, if you want a nice face, you lose the butt…but in your 40s, if you want a nice face you keep the butt. fat distribution changes as we age…and it just doesn’t work when one tried to stay the weight they prefered in their 20s or 30s. case in point; Demi Moore. she needs to let go and age gracefully.

  29. Rena says:

    IF she does indeed go to a dark brown then she is just going back to her original hair color.

    Her hair has to be strawlike under the extensions with all the extensive processes it has had for over 20 years (and just a few months ago she said in INStyle that ChrisMc cut her hair because of all the damage to it and she was looking like one of the LA Housewives). Now here the extensions are back like some kind of facial shield.

    Look at old pictures of her hair, it was a healthy looking thick curly dark dark brown.

    Kind of ironic that she has done all she could to appear a natural blond LA native when a certain someone is a natural blond LA native who dyes their hair dark.

    Life can really be so strange. LOL

    • patw says:

      everybody in HW dyes their hair though. Is anyone in HW walking around with their natural colour? Hers just happened to be lighter versus darker, and she talked about it and it got printed as a highlight because her hair is a big thing

      • LAK says:

        @patw calm down. Rena is just pointing out facts without being snarky.

        JA is a natural dark brown but she’s spent decades as a bottle blond. AJ is a natural blonde but she has spent decades as a bottle brunette.

        I think the bottle colours they have make their features pop. They would look ok but not necessarily pop with their natural colours.

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      @Rena
      LOL! I thought the exact same thing, but I didn’t want to bring up anything related to the “triangle”. Yes it is ironic, and funny.

      The last JA thread was just so nasty, and so many posters did nothing but argue. Ummm…We don’t actually know these people…haha!

  30. Wendy says:

    I can’t believe none of you have yet picked up on the “it would be healthier” comment. Ladies, have you not had enough coffee yet today?

    A brunette who lightens their hair and who wants to revert back for “health reasons”…

    Am I the only person here who connected the dots as to what she’s hinting at?

  31. Marianne says:

    Good. I actually look forward to seeing something new on her.

  32. Lauren says:

    Jen was born a brunette with brown eyes. Please a have a baby..i am tired of these debates about your fake hair. Then everyone will say the baby looks like Brad, not Justin.

  33. Ramona Q says:

    Her hair must be completely fried from the decades of bleach and the straightening iron. I’d like to see all her hair fall out. Or get caught in a fan.

  34. Miffits says:

    I seriously think the Real Housewives model themselves on Jennifer Aniston. Passed a certain age the super-casual-beachy-girl-next-door thing just comes across as vapid. She tries so hard to be approachable and relatable she’s starting to sound like an idiot with nothing better to do than groom herself all day. It’s a shame, I used to find her so likeable.

  35. Kim says:

    She needs to change up her look and drop the short black dresses and start dressing more classy. I would like to see her with dark brown hair. I think it would look good on her. The CA surfer girl wanna be thing on her has never worked for me. I think she would look better more edgy/dark hair.

    I used to watch Friends and stare at her hair and how damaged it was. Watch any old episode and look at all the broken off pieces and frizzies she has. Dying it dark wont fix the damage but dark dyes are better than bleach for the hair so it would help some.

    Although she denies, she does dress more like Justin. She is one who morphs into dressing like whomever she is dating.

  36. allie says:

    Jen’s natural eye color is green not brown. Green, blue and hazel eyes can naturally appear to change shades depending on what color clothes the person is wearing or the lighting.

    Most people eyes are not one solid color. They can have specs of gold, brown, blue, green, yellow or purple.

  37. Original Chloe says:

    I think this interview is a great example why some people like JA and others don’t.

    To me, personally, it seems absolutely generic, something she’s said countless times before: exercises, healthy food (but also Mexican from time to time), moderation, a glass of wine or a margarita sometimes, less tanning these days, comfy clothes, hair etc. Plus a pretty photo shoot, preferably with a dog because dogs are sweet and she likes dogs and we like dogs too, or on a beach; with soft light, or maybe a little nudity but not too much, one with a shy smile, one looking wistfully. The whole package. Always aiming at nice and pretty, never at intriguing. To me it’s like a Tylor Swift song.

    And there’s honestly nothing to actively dislike about it but there’s also nothing in it that she couldn’t have said years ago, or in another interview, or in another magazine, or promoting any of her other movies. In fact, there’s nothing in it that another person couldn’t have said (except there’s Theroux, but insert any other name). I mean, woman, you must have made some experiences in your life (painful divorce aside), you must have opinions on things, stories to tell, funny anecdotes, gah.

    I dunno, maybe she’s being asked the same questions and is just bored and answers in the same way, and maybe her people realized that this is a formula that works perfectly, and don’t want to change the product that sells and earns money. Even when she’s asked a question with a potential for an interesting answer – what was the most risky thing you’ve ever done – her answer is “I don’t know.. leaving the house can be risky.”

    Well, never mind. I’m saying all this because (the whole Triangle thing aside, I’m tired of this s*it) people can’t understand why others don’t “like” Jennifer Aniston and this is why.

    • patw says:

      to be fair – this IS InStyle, and just an extract of a whole article. Reading her interviews in full gives you other details like her home life, her childhood, her friends, the producing/directing/acting experience. I agree that an interview with her isn’t larger than life in nature. And maybe that’s on purpose from her. She seems to have travelled the world. She lived in Greece for a bit. I find the most interesting tid bits about her come from other people. Little details like she was one of the few people who visited RDJ while he was in prison, or she was up for a job for SNL, or she knew Jon frickin Stewart back in the day. I do think she’s closed off in interviews and not candid, but hey that’s her prerogative. It doesn’t seem to hurt sales.

      And some of these questions are weird. If I asked you what was the most risky thing you did, what would you say? I honestly don’t know what my answer would be because I don’t view my life decisions that way.

    • jinni says:

      Or maybe she does it on purpose because she reads or seen what happens to actors how dares to speak their mind on a subject. How many times have we ripped apart an actor for what they’ve said? How many times have people posted that an actor should just shut up about certain subjects when they’ve given more than just a generic response to a question? As they say, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

      She works in a business that is mainly based on popularity and I’m sure she and her people know how quickly the media, blogsphere, and tabs will jump on a celebrity when the say anything out of turn. The fact that she sticks to these same topics shows me that’s she pretty savvy about not f*cking with her image and audience. Did you ever think that maybe she wants to come off as boring/unassuming on purpose? Or that she sticks to these topics in order to keep some part of her life private? Yes, I’m fully aware that she, like most celebrities, do purposely sell part of their private life, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they want to live in a 24/7 all-you-can eat buffet of attention.

      A lot of people think that because a person choose the spotlight that they have a right to know everything about an actor. She’s probably aware of that belief and has come up with a strategy that has worked for her .It obviously is working because apparently she’s been talking about the same crap for years and people still buy her song and dance; so if it ain’t broke, why fix it? I don’t know about you, but if I was a celebrity I’d be doing the same thing. Give enough to make them think they know me, but keep most of myself to myself.

      @Original Chloe
      I agree, the copy/paste is strong in this one lol!

      JA hasn’t had much luck in her transition from TV to film. After she did The Good Girl critics took note, but she didn’t jump on that wave. I think she missed a great chance to break out of her nice girl comedy roles.

      I loved Friends, but I think that staying for ten years was not the best for her career. Maybe it wouldn’t have been so bad if she were younger, but by the time the show ended, JA was maybe 35? That’s an age when most actresses have already cemented their places in film, and are looking at a future of mom-type roles, or moving from film to TV.

      When it comes to acting it’s not good to stay with one role for too long, it kills the process, and limits one’s creativity. I think she should try indie films and smaller roles to help build up her acting chops. Other than that IDK.

  38. patw says:

    Another post on the same thing? GAH!

    I like that she doesn’t pretend that her body is magically like that. But I thought she worked out a lot more than that- this just sounds like regular work-outs?

    I actually think she looks good with golden hair (not blonde) like back in the 2003-2004. She did go a bit dark for good girl, and also for derailed. Brown will look great on her.

    I’m really confused though – some comments here say her eyes are fake? HOW do you know this? So she wears contacts everyday? Is there any pictures?

  39. skuddles says:

    Can’t see dark brown being an improvement, natural color or not. Auburn might work though.

  40. hateonit. says:

    wait wait wait. her eyes are naturally brown? se wears contacts or had surgery? I’m confused about this.

  41. nan says:

    I think she would look GREAT wearing a plaid flannel shirt while living in Greenland. Please go away….please?

  42. foozy says:

    dye her hair darker? she must’ve heard somewhere that justin prefers angelina too!

  43. del says:

    Not only she need to go back to her real natural freezy hair and color, she also need to change her style for real by beginning to wear age appropriate cloths she is not young she is a 43 year old woman next month.

    • blonde on the dock says:

      What’s with this age appropriate shit? Is she supposed to get a poodle cut and start wearing flowered polyester dresses? Does she have flab hanging out anywhere or cellulite? She doesn’t dress like a kid. She has great legs. Show them off!

  44. Jayna says:

    Brown hair will only work if she beats her tanorexia. If you look at her early movies, Object of My Affection, she had brown hair an paler skin. Brown hair against a dark tan on her will blend too much as the tan is fake, not like having a natural olive complexion. Can Jennifer stop with the incessant tanning that turns me off in every movie? I don’t know.

  45. laylajanelovesgossip says:

    I’m all for self improvement.If she feels prettier blonde with blue eyes go for it.

    Its way too late to change her eye color back. I hated her hair dark on horrible bosses. You Go California 40-something girl, Ya look GREAT!!!!

  46. BELLA says:

    its time for her to dye her hair,wear his cloths,grow facial hair … They should start dressing as twins!!!!!!
    what a joke

  47. marie says:

    No, don’t go brunette! And she has blue eyes not brown eyes as someone commented. Why should she have to change who she is to please others? If she likes a casual look or her LBD then so be it! As long as she is comfortable and feels good then she should wear what she wants. People need to be who they are and not what others want them to be. As for all her surgery…I believe she had her noses done and that’s it. She looks younger for her age because SHE WORKS OUT! She isn’t on some strange scary skinny diet plan.

  48. sullivan says:

    She has looked like one of *The Real Housewives* for awhile now. The blonde hair-curtain, the ‘George Hamil-tan,’ the clothes. It’s her thing. I doubt she’s secure enough to make any big changes to her look. Brown hair-curtain? No spray tan? A bra? That’s too radical.

  49. Camille (The original) says:

    Aniston a ‘style icon’? LOL Thank goodness beauty and style is subjective eh.

    I just can’t with Miss Piggy here LOL.

    And yes, she should go back to her NATURAL brunette shade, it suits her much better. Not to mention how ageing the hair colour she has now looks on her, she’d look much fresher and younger with darker hair.

  50. Fred says:

    You are correct, her mini skirt look is all wrong, whereas when she is casual (chic) she looks great. The mini skirt looks as if she is trying too hard. And the natural brunette look, or something near that, is definitely in order now. Her interviews always seem to sound so blah, perhaps she really is that boring, or maybe just too careful.

  51. Heavenbound says:

    She should be who she wants to be! What is this obsession with trying to change other peoples looks and/or life style? If someone comes and tells me that I should change my image to suite their perception of beauty, I would tell them to take a hike!

  52. Ruffian9 says:

    Is she secure enough to go back to brown? This is a woman who gets an awful lot of attention and acclaim for her hair. When she went for a bob type cut a few years ago, I thought it looked nice & fresh. Apparently she hated it, and soon went back to her old ‘do’. It’s her security blanket.

  53. Isa says:

    I tend to prefer blondes. I think she looks better as a blonde.
    Her hair is fine, she doesn’t have to change it. But she could do some updos or something for the red carpet, instead of the beachy hair. That’s where she should change up her style.
    Her everyday hair is fine, but I don’t see why people fawn over it so much.

  54. xploxite says:

    I agree with you, I Love her hair the way it is, so sexy. As you said she should just style it for the Red carpet That’s all.

  55. Lola says:

    I think it’s hilarious that she actually made a heathat into a challenge hahadline for wanting to dye her hair.she has the same hair problem as Demi Moore- it’s too long. She used to chic but now it looks straggly and overprocessed. Not cool and modern as before. I think she’s a goodactorthat maybe hasn’t challenged herself as muchas she could.she doesn’t seem

  57. Vesper says:

    For someone who works out as much as Jenn says she does, it doesn’t really show, particularly on her arms.

    Justin hasn’t influenced her style? Before dating him when did we ever see her walk around town in baggy jeans rolled up, ugly flat boots, belt with a huge buckle, sloppy t-shirt and jacket, finished off by an unflattering hat.

    Re. cooking. Of course she doesn’t have a signature dish, but she does eggs well. LOL. Seems to fit into her general pattern of being a boring and untalented girl with little interest in anything beyond tanning, partying and dating.

    • Capella says:

      You’re gonna have to go all the way back when she was dating Brad to see her in baggy pants. That is her usual attire, camisoles, baggy pants, and flip flops. I remember the pictures that were taken of her and Brad in Venice (I think), and they were both wearing baggy cargo pants, I thought wow, you really can’t tell the difference between them and other tourists. How do the paps find them?

  58. Ginger says:

    I think she would look fantastic with darker hair. I changed my look up a bit after 40 as well and it worked. As soon as I dyed my hair a darker color people said I looked even younger. ITA that she has had the same look for so long that it’s a yawn. She needs to change it up.

  59. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    Strawberrygirl,

    She certainly could write an article in The Economist if she studied up on current events. The other woman sure has penned for them, but she did her homework. This one has a 6 day week of exercising instead and even carrying her weights to hotels to keep up her routine. Priorites matter.

    So, that leaves these kind of interviews with Huvane right by her side to assist when the questions get tough, like about risky stuff being just going outside. The Economist, will require a lot more help. Dyeing her hair then it is.
