Jennifer Aniston: ‘I feel most beautiful when I’m just at home with Justin Theroux’


Jennifer Aniston made her way onto one of Forbes’ many listicles. Forbes does so many analyses of Hollywood and who makes what and who’s a good deal for the studio and while I agree with much of statistical analysis, I do think there’s an X-factor, something intangible, something unquantifiable that doesn’t always make it onto these lists. But that’s neither here nor there. As I was saying, Jennifer made one of the bad lists. She’s number 8 on Forbes’ list of “Most Overpaid Hollywood Stars” – you can see the slideshow here. #1 is Adam Sandler, then Katherine Heigl (HAHAHA), and Reese Witherspoon made the list too (she has a higher ranking than Aniston). Kevin James, Nicolas Cage and Denzel Washington are on the list too, and all make less money back to the studios than Jennifer. Jennifer is right up there with Steve Carrell and Ryan Reynolds, meaning that for every dollar they’re paid (and Jennifer averages a $10 million paycheck), they bring in about $10 to the studio. It’s an interesting list, but do you see what I’m saying about an intangible “x-factor”? No matter what, Denzel is still going to be work whenever he wants on a wide variety of projects, regardless of how much money he brings in.

So, considering Jennifer is never really going to get this whole “movie star leading lady” thing going (she will forever be a character actress, which seriously is not the worst thing), it’s no wonder she has a growing cadre of side-projects. Remember Living Proof? That’s Jennifer’s MIT-made haircare line which she invested in and now represents in many, many interviews. These interviews are just infomercials and I wonder why magazines are even participating in this bulls—t, especially now that we know Jennifer isn’t really using Living Proof, she’s doing wacky, formaldehyde-based hair treatments that burn off her hair. So much for Living Proof! Anyway, Jennifer sat down with Parade to talk about hair, aging and all that good stuff:

The Living Proof infomercial: “Other hair companies have approached me before, but I didn’t just want to be a face of a brand. So I used it for a couple of months and gave a bunch to Chris [her longtime hairstylist Chris McMillan] for him to use at the salon. It happened to be at the time when I was in North Carolina filming [We’re the Millers] and it was like 100 percent humidity, so I used the frizz products at first, and I was really impressed. It’s a new company and they’re eager and exciting and they let me be involved in the smells and new product ideas.”

Her favorite hairstyle: “Well, that’s a good question because I just chopped it all off! I’m loving it right now. It’s right below my ear. I went short! But I do that every couple of years. It’s just nice to do something different. We were at a photo shoot the other day and I just said let’s chop it off! It was one of those moments. I love doing something different and changing it up, but at the end of the day, I’m a lover of long hair. I just think it’s beautiful. I would have to say that’s my go-to fave.”

Hair envy: “I think Giselle [Bundchen] has exquisite hair. That’s a pretty envious head of hair! And I love Kate Moss. She always has great hair.”

Oh, it’s an Aveeno infomercial too: “There’s barely any style! The beauty routine is the same: I wash my face, I brush my teeth, and I jump in the shower. I have my little products I’ve used since I’ve been in my 20s, which is basically my Aveeno body moisturizer and I’ll put some serums in my hair because I try not to wash it every day. I will usually just sort of wet my hair and reshape it. And I put on sunscreen and no makeup. I usually put my jeans on and a T-shirt. I’m a sweats and UGGs girl. Very casual.”

When do you feel most beautiful? “I feel most beautiful when I’m just at home with [fiance] Justin Theroux in the morning. Or any time of day I’m with him.”

Does she watch Friends reruns? “I actually will always stop and watch, not for the whole thing, but usually because I’ve forgotten a lot of the episodes. It’s sort of fun for a second, I’m like, what’s this one? And sometimes it comes back to me. I always know what year it was by what length my hair was or what color.”

What’s going on in her life? “My life is so fantastic. I’m so happy. There are a lot of exciting things that I’m excited about doing. We’re about to do a sequel to Horrible Bosses, which is such a fun character for me. And I think I’m going to try at some point next year to direct a full-length feature, which I’m extremely excited about. I’m just so happy and I’m grateful for my fans. I just hope I keep doing work that they love.”

Surprise, she loves science: “Well, I love the science channel. Have you ever watched NOVA? Those are always really fun. When I was a kid, my dad and I would literally watch surgeries. I could easily watch all those kinds of science shows: body trauma, life in the ER, all of that stuff. I just find really interesting. Maybe it’s because my dad was going to be a doctor at one point.”

She turns 45 in February: “[What I know now is…] That there’s nothing to worry about — although I don’t think I had a care in the world at 25, either. That all started in my 30s, my awkward phase. I’m a little bit of a late bloomer! But it doesn’t matter to me because it just gets better. They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now — if not more — than I did when I was 25. I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind. Life is full. Life is wonderful. We’re very, very fortunate.”

[From Parade]

I watch NOVA. I love NOVA. But I never watch any of the surgery shows or ER Trauma shows. Those make me break out in a cold sweat. Did anyone else see the NOVA special on interspecies friendships? That was one of the best NOVAs I’d seen in a long time. Inevitably, I get stuck on the NOVAs about birds. I could watch bird shows for days.

Anyway, blah, more Aniston New Age crap, more shilling for Aveeno and Living Proof, more stuff about how happy she is with Justin. Let’s hope everything works out for her. I hope this engagement last through the holidays!

    I think she really means when she is at home and high with Justin. But who really cares as long as she is happy.

    “I feel most beautiful when I’m just at home with [fiance] Justin Theroux in the morning. Or any time of day I’m with him.”

    Someone snarkier than me is going to have to do this quote justice. At the moment, I am left silenced and kind of …. yeah, wow.

    Who makes this kind of crap up? Did she actually say this? Does she mean it? Did her publicist feed her these lines?

    I need more coffee.

    • epiphany says:

      The dark lord Huvane at work again.
      I still think they’re breaking up, BTW, her gag worthy comments to the contrary.

      • Lopusta says:

        Sometime ago the same woman said she didn’t need a man to be happy and to feel beautiful talking about women empowerment :)
        Huvane is out in full force I see ;)

      • Tara says:

        Yeah, the number of “excitings” and “happies” … just seem like someone trying to paint a thick picture of denial. I think she’s pretty boring, but she’s not the devil. If they’re happy, fine. But I don’t believe it.

      • Lopusta says:

        Yea cecila I said that for people like you who like to bitch about a particular couple but can’t take the heat when its your precious Jen. We on the other hand aren’t hypocrite and don’t try to whine when you and your fellow minions acttack that particular couple! If you can’t take the heat I suggest you live the kitchen.
        @Josephina am So tired of all these Jenhens who act as if Jennifer is the next best thing after Jesus. Jennifer no longer has it like before even sites were she was considered sacred are now trashing her and even letting negative comments through and it wasn’t like that before. Her poor Me pity party as worn out and people now see her like she really is.

      • Vee says:

        No matter what they say, I agree they’re breaking up (or have already broken up) but they’re probably going to play it out until the beginning of next year for publicity.

        I hope not for her, but it’s just seems like a blah relationship from what I’ve seen of pictures with them together. If they weren’t breaking up, they’d have gotten married by now. Not a good sign with the wedding called off.

      • Scout says:

        “If they weren’t breaking up, they’d have gotten married by now. Not a good sign with the wedding called off.”

        Whatever happened to Brad and Angelina’s wedding? Brad promised a year and a half ago that the wedding was any minute now. What did he say about the wait when he was promoting some film? “The end is nigh”.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Scout, who wrote: “Whatever happened to Brad and Angelina’s wedding? Brad promised a year and a half ago that the wedding was any minute now. What did he say about the wait when he was promoting some film? “The end is nigh”.”

        (Blinks) Did I miss something? When did the Jolie-Pitts ‘publicly’ call off their wedding? Do you have a link to the magazine cover story in which they ‘publicly’ called off their wedding?

        No? Then what’s your damage?

    • Azurea says:

      I remember an interview with her in, I think, Vanity Fair, the year before Brad & she split. When asked what her favourite thing to do was, she said “Going home with my husband after an evening out & drinking water & talking.” Seriously? The new statement about when she feels most beautiful rivals it for sheer banality, vapidity, & laziness of thought.

      • ann h says:

        Her favouite thing was going home after an evening out drinking water, and we’re supposed to believe that? The only water she knows is ice cubes in her margarita (before dumbwater clogging the landfills). Who says that in real life? This is coming from a woman that has a margarita fountain in her new home.
        I used to have an alcoholic friend who knew I didn’t like her heavy drinking, and she’d phone me and say that she hadn’t had a drink in a long time. Meanwhile, she’s slurring her words and you can hear the ice cubes clinking around in her glass. So when she says great night out and drinking water, well, she’s only fooling herself.
        As for her beautiful skin, I have a beautiful leather purse that looks just like her.

    • Scout says:

      I’m not sure why this quote requires any snark and not getting why this quote is such a big deal. Most people would say something like this. I fell most beautiful when I’m with my partner. Is this really going to be something people are going rage about all day?

    • Esmom says:

      The whole thing sounds fake. So I went back to see who the interview was with and it’s Parade, FFS. Has ANY Parade interview been remotely interesting? I think all their pieces are publicist-generated crapola.

    • Katherine says:

      No she didn’t “say” this. These are written responses to written questions. Gee, I wonder who wrote them out?

      • Josephina says:

        Umm… (hits buzzer.)

        Panelist: Who is Huvane?

        Alex Trebek: “Yes, you are absolutely right!”

      • ennie says:

        huvane and team, all approved by her and huvane’s team.
        they have precedence over what the mag ail publish, the pictures, etc.
        that is why I see that all about her “awkward phase”, and in some other important mags she and her team approve of articles were he is almost always linked to her 150 years marriage.

        and I find funny how she admires the lighter hair on othere, no wonder hers is always dyed fair.

      • Cleo says:

        If it was Huvane, why make her sound so dumb and illiterate though – so it would read as more authentic?

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Ennie, who wrote: “and I find funny how she admires the lighter hair on othere, no wonder hers is always dyed fair.”

        I truly do believe that Jen has a problem with her Greek heritage and her self-image in general, which probably goes back to her childhood. And I don’t think her mother should get all of the blame, either.

        Jen probably wanted to be all of the pretty ‘blonde’ girls she saw when she was a child.

    • Cleo says:

      Hmmm…if she feels most beautiful around him, and hipster man is all she needs, why’d she tell some interviewer last year that she once did fillers (snicker, like it was just the one time..haha) and that she was ‘addicted to laser porn,’ (finding the best skin resurfacing blasters on the internets) – it would seem she’d have no need for sandblasting her orange face if Justin was enough. lol

    • ann h says:

      If she wants to feel beautiful all the time, all she has to do is watch the original Aveeno commercial with the constant reminder at the end that they shoved down our throats. Maybe if she hears it often enough, it might come true. The beautiful Jennifer Aniston`the beautiful Jennifer Aniston. I can, I want and I will!!!

  4. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I wondered about the haircare shill thing–do these magazines just ignore the fact that she’s already said that she has extensions (past and present), and burned all her hair off w/a Brazilian? I guess the editors just like to sit back and laugh when something like this comes your way.

    • Josephina says:

      Many of us agree with you.

      You are not the only one who keeps seeing a trend of Jen saying one thing in an interview, then within 1-3 weeks later, she is saying something completely different where she contradicts herself.

      There is a saying about Aniston: “If her lips are moving, she must be lying…”

      In the past (when she was casually dating post-divorce), she was stating that you don’t need a man to be happy. She even threw shade at the women of Sex And The City movie franchise. NOW that she is all loved up, her “tank” is full and she is getting love attention, she is singing a different tune.

      Whatever, Jen. Whatever. Cheers to Jen!

    • prissa says:

      Exactly. This comment made me do a double take: “We were at a photo shoot the other day and I just said let’s chop it off! It was one of those moments. ” <_<

      Like you mentioned, I thought she burned her hair with one of those formaldehyde treatments. She makes it sound like it was a spur of the moment thing, when stories came out to the contrary. In reality, I'm sure she was in full on crisis mode when she realized her hair was fried.

    • hope says:

      And here is another version:

      Gucci was the one who urged her pal to chop her locks as she believed it would make a great statement.

      “Apparently, I inspired her to cut it,” Gucci smiled. “We went to her house after our piercings and she cut it there. I was pretty forceful. I was like, ‘You have to! You’re such a trendsetter. We’ve felt this Jen for so long, we’ve got to keep it moving!’ She looks so cute.”

      So which is it???

    • Cleo says:

      Don’t forget she loves the natural aveeno products, and pretends she’s just this organic soap and water beauty regimen woman –
      ..yet just last year she said she was ‘addicted to laser po r n,’ and also admitted to botox and fillers.

  5. nico says:

    A Jennifer Aniston thread….YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!

    Jennifer Aniston and Brangelina threads are the best. I always look out my window to see if a full moon is shining bright, while I enjoy reading these threads.

  6. Anna says:

    Wow she just name dropped so many brands LOL
    “My life is so fantastic. I’m so happy” – I find when you have to say things like that, it’s really just overcompensating and your life really isn’t that great right now..
    I always found Kate Moss’ hair to be quite thin..

    as for the Forbes list, at least Denzel is still an incredible actor, Jennifer should’ve just stuck to TV.

  7. Vanderhootchie says:

    *gag* Also, you can really tell she’s a smoker now.

  8. jinni says:

    I have never cared for her, but the fact that she like PBS’s NOVA and the surgeries shows makes me like her a little because I love those shows. I especially like the Medical Mysteries and Animal Planet’s Monster Inside of Me.

  9. Patricia says:

    Ooh my hair my hair ooh lala the years of my life are defined by my hair and when I need a change I go straight to me haaaaaair!
    Get a life.
    Also, you are going to start directing now? OK Angelina… Lol

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Ugh, don’t even (Angelina comment)–Dailymail already has an article up like that. I’m not sure who is supposed to be insulted.

    • Scout says:

      I think it has something to do with the fact that all three of these people are all a lot more famous when they are all lumped together. I read an interesting article about the fame game a few years ago and they ran through the numbers, box office tallies, magazine covers. They had a whole section on Brad and Angelina. Before the Aniston/Pitt drama Jolie had been on the cover of People magazine only one time and her film career had basically stalled in the years after Tomb Raider. Pitt hadn’t been able to carry a movie by himself and had one of the lowest per screen averages of any male star in Hollywood. Aniston would have had a hard time transitioning into film after Friends. This drama put all three of them on the map and continues to keep them in the public eye. They can go years without actually having a hit film. Even Jolie for all her “star” power hasn’t carried a hit film in ages.. She doesn’t need to. This drama, their personal lives…sells, still, after all of these years. I mean look at us, we’re still here talking about all this crap.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Uh, no. Tomb Raider came out in 2003, she filmed Alexander and Shark Tale around then too. They filmed MAMS in most of 2004 and a little bit in 2005 (because Brad was doing Ocean’s 12–he had the same haircut in both films). For MAMS, Angelina received 15 million upfront and a backend deal i.e. 20 million a picture. That was BEFORE she and Brad got together. As for her hit films–the last two movies she did was ‘Salt’ and ‘The Tourist’–I think the Tourist was a bomb (it didn’t even play where I live), but Salt wasn’t. Angelina hasn’t done a film in almost three years–she just filmed Maleficent earlier this year.

        As for her popularity on PEOPLE, the only times that Angelina (and Brad) do PEOPLE is based on a few criteria–they get covers when they have their kids, there was a cover when Angelina’s mom died, I think Angelina might’ve gotten a cover when she and Billy Bob broke up (but that might’ve been apart of the adoption of Maddox), and then twice a year they have a “refuting the rumors” cover. Then, of course, they had two covers for her mastectomy, their engagement–that was the last time they had a cover, if I’m not mistaken.

        Brad didn’t work for the first two years when he and Jennifer got married–he started w/Troy and the Ocean’s films (I’m pretty sure he did the third one right after he and Angelina got together) and MAMS–that was him getting back into making movies again. So you could make that argument for him–but his entire focus did change when he got w/Angelina–he started doing more w/his production company, picking better projects.

        Jennifer finished Friends in early 2005, and went right into movies–I think she had a 6 picture deal with Warner Bros’–or something. All I know is that in 2005, she filmed 3 movies back to back. I think she had a hard time transitioning because she can’t act–but that’s just me. The only good reviews I’ve heard from her are ‘The Good Girl’, ‘Marley and Me’ (and this is from a friend who doesn’t like her either), and I liked her in ‘Horrible Bosses’.

      • Scout says:

        @ Virginia.

        “The duo has appeared, alone and together, on the cover of People 22 times; before they were a couple, Pitt appeared eight times, and Jolie just once.”

        -NY Magazine January 29, 2012

        Also, weird how you forgot to mention all the flops after Tomb Raider, Pushing Tin, Life or Something Like it, Beyond Borders, Taking Lives, Original Sin, Tomb Raider 2 etc.

        Maybe that’s why Jolie’s schedule was wide open when she stepped in to replace Nicole Kidman in MAMS at the every last minute, a film she was actually paid less for than Tomb Raider. $10 million vs. $12 million. Five years worth of flops often bring down your asking price, especially when your biggest hit was based on a video game that sold 75 million copies and would have been a hit with or without you.

        Anyway, let’s just agree to disagree. I can’t imagine spend all day detailing every waking moment of these people’s production schedules for the last 10 years or doing an analysis over whether Brad Pitt had the same haircut on any given film.

      • Lana says:

        Your information is erroneous. Angelina Jolie has carried several “hit” movies. 1.SALT was a major hit movie and the studio wants a SALT 2 Sequel with Angelina Jolie. 2. The Tourist – The Hollywood Reporter reported “The Tourist’ has Become an International Hit” with box office returns of $278.3 million. And Wanted was a big hit as well and the studios wanted a sequel to Wanted with Angelina Jolie. And her movies were not”Ages ago” as you so careless state.
        Brad Pitt has carried several hit movies as well, with very good box office returns, WWZ being one of the latest.
        I am disappointed that posters such as yourself would make completely wrong, misleading and erroneous comments so cavalierly without checking the facts. This is a public blog but that does not mean you should take liberties with facts!

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I just looked it up–Tomb Raider 2 came out in 2003. Between that and MAMS, she made the following films–Beyond Borders, Taking Lives, Shark Tale, Sky Captain, and Alexander. Only in two of the films listed she was the lead–Beyond Borders and Taking Lives.

        This is a link to the Hollywood Reporter–she makes 20 million.
        Whether she gets 10 million upfront, and the rest afterwards–she still gets 20 million.

        I never disputed what you said about People–I said that Angelina only bothered w/a cover when she adopted Maddox. She adopted him in 2002/3–she had a cover. After that, she had a cover with JUST HER and Zahara–when she adopted Zahara.

        And I mentioned Brad’s haircut because it’s true–I read it in an interview. He was still filming Ocean’s 12–so they kept his hair the same.

      • Katie says:

        So being in the triangle made Angelina get $20m from $10m per movie? Then why does Jennifer still get $5m (in comedies only,) which she was already getting before the triangle?
        And so what if Angelina replaced Nicole in MAMS? Isn’t that what Hollywood is about? She even replaced Tom C in Salt and Sandra replaced her in Gravity so no big deal there. I however agree that the triangle made them even more popular BUT that doesn’t = payrise.
        If thats the case, then I’m sure LeAnne, Brandi and Eddie are going to increase their asking prices in whatever they do too.
        Plus why is being on People special? How many covers do Sandra B, Reese, Johnny, Leo, Will, RDJ etc covers?

      • Josephina says:


        I imagine that Aniston hopes to have Angelina’s career one day when she grows up.

        At this point, Angelina Jolie is in a league by herself. She writes, produces and directs. she has documented success in each endeavor. She has great Karma.

        (OTOH, Aniston has had her production company Echo films for 10 years and STILL no real action or acceleration.) Her lips keep moving about directing/producing, but…

        Angie gets first pics at roles. She is an artist. She has successfully carried films on her name alone. She has received critical acclaim for every movie she has made since where she starred as a leading role. She is good at ensembles as well (See Kung Fu Panda 1, 2 and 3). But BEFORE 2005 she had ALREADY won many awards for her acting. Go check out her IMDB site to see all of her nominations and award winning acting accomplishments: 1Oscar, 2 GGs, 3 SAGs before Brad and 2005. The list is pretty extensive.

        And no, Angie does not have to throw 6-10 parties each year asking for roles and schmoozing for support.

        Trying to lump Aniston in as her peer in film and clout is a joke as well as an insult as VC had stated earlier.

      • Scout says:

        I love how each commenter slices and dices their own truths. My point was that BEFORE the triangle these people were less valuable. And your response is to run through all of Brad and Angelina’s hit films and paychecks that happened AFTER, successes which for Jolie still happened ages ago.

        SALT came out almost FOUR years ago, which in Hollywood is friggin’ ages ago. The Tourist was a “hit” that everyone made fun of and had a huge co-star, nor did Jolie receive any critical acclaim for this film, despite a poster’s claim that she did.

        I think it goes without saying that when one is always quick to always point out how ensembles and male co-stars aren’t actually YOUR success then that definition should apply to everyone, not just Aniston. So that means no credit for Kung Fu Panda or any of the Ocean’s films, sorry.

        And finally, if your definition of writing, directing and producing success is a film that made all of $310,000 world wide gross, then yes, Jolie’s directorial debut was a successful endeavor I guess.

        Anyway, moving on. No point in arguing about this all day, is there? One thing I’ve learned is that people can actually argue about this for an entire DECADE. Ugh.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Scout–you’re the one who brought up the fact that after they got together–Angelina’s asking price went up. that isn’t true. Her asking price went up when she signed on to do MAMS. NOT because of Brad.

        You said that she hadn’t had a hit film in years–which is why we brought up Salt and The Tourist–her last two films. Thinking back, I’m pretty sure The Tourist bombed in the US, but it made a lot of money overseas–because she’s huge internationally. Her movies tend to do better overseas than domestically. So that’s why we brought it up. Keep your comments straight. And as for her directorial debut–it wasn’t a romcom or an action flick–it was about the Bosnian rape camps–I’m pretty sure no one going into the movie expected it to make much. If it broke even on the BO, then that would be a miracle. Plus it never got wide release–I saw it on Netflix. So I’m not sure what you mean by that.

        And you can’t honestly believe that because someone is with a famous person, that their asking price will go up. You might be able to be in more films–but no way are they going to pay you more money because of it. Katie Holmes’ price didn’t go up–she was married to Tom Cruise. You get more visibility when you hook up with someone–not more money (in films anyway). No matter how popular a couple may seem, if producers don’t think they can deliver the goods, then they aren’t going to get paid like they do.

      • Josephina says:

        Aniston makes ONLY 5 million per film. Pretty low after being in the business for over 20 years.

        Brad and Angie make about 20 million per film. Brad and Angie are the power couple and don’t need Aniston for anything.

        All eyes are always on them at red carpet events.

        Aniston is also listed on Forbes List (top Ten) as actors that are overpaid per film.

        Again, the JPs do not need Aniston to expand their popularity or to boost sales of any kind.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Scout, who wrote: “I think it has something to do with the fact that all three of these people are all a lot more famous when they are all lumped together.”

        The Jolie-Pitts do ‘not’ need Jennifer Aniston at all. She has ridden a high wave these past nine years, attached to Angie and Brad’s coattails. She doesn’t have a thing the Jolie-Pitts need. I mean, what is she? … hair, body, skin, margaritas, and her man. The Jolie-Pitts are SO much more than that. Even people wearing Jen-Hen gilded glasses should be able to see that.

      • TC says:

        In order for an actor’s asking price to go up, I would think he/she would have to be able to put “butts in seats” on a consistent basis. Being bankable on a fairly regular level is necessary for the big bucks. Studios aren’t going to show you the money if it’s been proven you can’t deliver. This is why Aniston remains in ensembles. She’s never had a critically and financially successful film on her name alone. Therefore, she remains where she’s always been: in that comedic ensemble role where she can share the workload with a bevy of other actors and not have to deal with the pressure that comes with the success of the film riding on your name alone.

        While Brad and Angie have had their share of financial film failures, they are pretty consistent with turning profits for their big budget film projects. They have proven time and time again to the studios that they can handle the pressure of headlining a film. For the smaller, indie film projects, they either help finance those films with their own money (as Angie did for In the Land of Blood and Honey), or they take a smaller paycheck because they believe in the project and want it to make sure it gets made (A Mighty Heart, Tree of Life, Killing Them Softly, 12 Years a Slave).

        Pure and simple, Brad and Angie deliver the box office on a consistent basis. And at the end of the day, that’s what the studios want.

    • Katie says:

      I guess K-stew and Rupert, LeAnne, Eddie and Eddie, Meg Ryan and Russell, Jude Law, Hugh Grant’s values increased after their scandals?
      Also as I said earlier, why is Aniston still earning the same amount of money she as did pre-scandal?

      • Cleo says:

        Just a correction, Sandra didn’t ‘replace’ Angelina, Angelina was offered ‘Gravity,’ first, she turned it down — they then went to Nat Portman and maybe 1-2 other actresses, before Sandra. I know it makes for a great story – but the bottom line is, Angelina is pretty much always first…even Jennifer Lawrence says that.

  10. Anastasia says:

    She…..called him by his full name? Not just “Justin?”

    That quote is hilarious. She’s happy at home with him in the morning. Or any time of day.

    It reminds me of that scene in Best of Show (Christopher Guest mockumentary) when the woman is being interviewed about her “happy” marriage to a man about 60 years older than her (in his 90s and in a wheelchair and without teeth).

    She says, “We have so much in common, we both love soup and snow peas, we love the outdoors, and talking and not talking. We could not talk or talk forever and still find things to not talk about.”

    Hell, even that character came up with more to say about her husband than Jennifer did.

    • lisa says:

      She probably didn’t say his name the writer inserted ii I think to explain to the readers who he is exactly. they did that a while ago with someone else and he got shit for it.. even though he never said her name.

      Just wondering why the inteview. What is she promoting work wise? Is the hair and skin stuff not selling. I mean why does she have to mention it every time she is interviewed.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I thought that was really strange, too. And, since the sentence is in quotes, I’m assuming that is exactly how she said it! Justin probably told her to get his name in the interview somehow…

    • keep says:

      I think she did refer to him as Justin Theroux. Anyone remember her backstage speech to Brad at the Golden Globes after she ‘forgot’ to mention him during her speech?
      She said, ‘Brad PITT thank you for keeping me together man, literally’. It always cracks me up that she referred to her husband like that. I think it’s still on YouTube. Lol.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        She did–I just read the interview for a second time, because I thought that the writers had inserted his name in brackets, and she said he–but no. She said Justin Theroux. That’s weird. It’s such a clinical way to refer to someone that you are in love with.

        I’m having big doubts about them–I thought they’d hold on a little longer. Now I wouldn’t be surprised if they announced it before the holidays were over.

    • Amanduh says:

      @ Anastasia: OMG!! I love that movie!! That was Jennifer Coolidge (sp?) and she was hilarious in that role!!!

  11. ANDREA1 says:

    Its always about the hair. Smh

  12. Paloma says:

    Lots of words, not really saying anything, though.

    • neer says:

      I agree. She is not really very good in expressing herself… or she is just empty. Every time I read or hear her interviews, I don’t exactly know what she is trying to say. She cannot just state briefly or go direct to the point. So many unnecessary words & phrases.

    • Des says:

      I thing you need to go to a non gossip site if you don’t like it here. That’s what happens at sites like this one, we talk crap about celebrities. What’s wrong with that? If you are fan of anyone gossip sites are going to have people talk crap about the stars you love and visor versa. Why are you complaining on a gossip site? Like people are just going to stop because you said or you like the star …. Just enjoy and stop taking the comments personal like some people on here do. Jennifer don’t care what we thing about her. At the end of the day she’s rich and feel sexy with her man…. And would ignore you if she met you in the streets.

      • Scout says:

        I’ll be sure to remember this comment when you come on here and defend someone you like with something very similar to what I said. Part of being on a gossip site is also being allowed to disagree with some of the other commenters and saying things like…if you don’t like (fill in name of celeb) then stop reading about them. That’s what happens on site like this one and many others. Stop getting defensive and taking it so personally. NONE of these celebs would give any of us the time of day. That includes the people you like.

      • Esmom says:

        @Scout, FWIW, I think your comments here have been among the most rational I’ve seen. But as you’re seeing, most people can’t be remotely rational here when it comes to this particular topic for whatever reason. You’d think JA had murdered their beloved pets or something equally evil! :)

      • Des says:

        LOL…. I come here to enjoy the comments. I don’t care either way about people I don’t know. I have been on this site for years and have only commented on here about 3 times and it has not been to defend any of these star. So keep looking for that…it won’t happened. We can disagree all day but it seems that your trying to force us not to say anything bad about your homegirl Jen, but don’t feel bad so are the angeloones. So only Jen lovers should comment on her stories? How fun would that be? Boring just like her. Your the one that getting defensive about all this lol. So follow my advise and your own don’t take it personal.

      • Scout says:


        I remember years ago on Gawker I think they were ragging on Aniston in the most vicious way and someone made a rational argument that went something along the lines of:

        You act like this woman ran over a bunch of puppies, shot up a playground full of school children before burning down a senior citizens home.

        I always thought that was too funny.

      • zut alors! says:

        I am pretty sure Scout is a commenter on Jezebel & Gawker who goes by GAWKSUCKER. She is a hardcore Aniston stan and rages at anything to do with Jolie. The comment she made about turning wombs into clown cars is her signature line. She fancies herself a wit. This line about Aniston, “You act like this woman ran over a bunch of puppies, shot up a playground full of school children before burning down a senior citizens home.”, is also one of hers. It’s so funny that she’s giving herself props.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Esmom …

        Jen-Hen: Angelina Jolie needs to eat, she’s SO thin, it’s unhealthy, the Jolie-Pitts use their children as PR, she only had the operation so she could get a bigger pair of boobs, she’s turning Shiloh into a ‘boy’ because she hates her, she’s a brother kissing skank who steals other peoples’ husbands, she’s a WHO$E, she look like she smells … Brad looks dirty, like he smells, he looks like a hobo, he’s a cheater, he’d better shut up about Jen!

        Jolie-Pitt fan: Jennifer Aniston slurred her taped interview, sounded like she was drunk … did you listen to it? She doesn’t have the build to wear a dress like that, People are generous in saying she’s 5 floot 4 inches tall, she looks stumpy to me and she needs those 5″ heels for height. Wait a minute … didn’t she give an interview earlier this year in “People” about her wedding dress and getting married? Then why did she act like she didn’t know anything about ‘that’ interview when she was asked about her dress by ‘Entertainment News?’

        Jen-Hen: Why are you being so mean to Jen? You use any excuse to rip her to shreds!

  13. ANDREA1 says:

    She will always play Rachel nothing challenging

    • Amy Tennant says:

      I don’t mean this in a mean way AT ALL,, but I wonder what it would be like if she went back to TV? She has her own production company and enough Hollywood clout that I bet she could command a really good vehicle. She could pick and choose and wait for something really good or develop her own. She really shone on Friends. I know that was an ensemble and probably lightning-in-a-bottle to try to capture again, but she could even branch out and try something different. I just think the intimacy of the small screen really suited her, and her big TV comeback would draw a lot of attention. It used to be that television was considered “slumming” but more and more serious film actors are doing series on cable and getting good reviews.

    • Snappyfish says:

      Exactly. She wasn’t that good at Rachel. She just played a well liked character on a well liked show. The 15 minutes ran out long ago

      • Amy Tennant says:

        Oh, I respectfully disagree. I think she was charming. She really embodied that character, and we watched the character of Rachel Green grow and develop in depth over the course of ten years. And some of the physical comedy, like when she put on her old cheerleader costume and cartwheeled down the stairs and broke her tooth, was pure genius. She’s gifted and funny when given the chance.

      • ANDREA1 says:

        I agree with both your comments.
        But IMHO for Jennifer aniston going back to TV to her might be a major step down. I think that’s how she would see it.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        @Andrea1 I agree. I also think she would see it as a failure, but she needn’t.

      • jojo says:

        I do not think she was all that great at playing rachel either. But the writers developed the rachel character in the ditzi fashion that viewers love so much. Kudrow’s character was kinda half-assed developed, and cox had that over bearing character that many viewers disliked at times. But JA’s popularity of Rachel supercedes both of those due to two things: hair and nipples.

      • Scout says:

        I thought she was totally charming as Rachel Green and I really liked her in The Good Girl. I think it’s unfortunate that most actors get totally type cast. She is not alone in that. Most of the super famous people are like that. Ben Stiller plays the same person over and over. George Clooney always has to be THAT guy., Cameron Diaz is always THAT girl. Brad Pitt refuses to play anything other than some sort of heroic character. Ryan Gosling has kind of exhausted that too cool for school schtick, and the list goes on. It seems like only Matt Damon and Christian Bale have taken any real risks recently. Damon was great in the Liberace movie in a role hardly any man in Hollywood would have the courage to do and Bale really throws himself into everything. He gains weight, He’s willing to look ugly on camera, willing to play unpleasant people. I wish they’d ALL do something completely different like that, Aniston included.

        As for Aniston, I find her perfectly harmless as famous people go and I can’t understand that if her 15 minutes were up years ago why there is a post about her every other day, sometimes two in one day. Or why the people who claim her 15 minutes were up long ago continue clicking, reading and commenting. For someone who is supposedly so boring people seem pretty worked up over her.

      • Cecilia says:

        @ Scout


        Jen is harmless. I think she is aware of her limitations & makes the most of what she has. It has obviously payed off for her. She is smiling & twirling her hair all the way to the bank. BTW…I am using Living Proof & that stuff is amazing. She is a very astute business woman.

      • The Original G says:

        Friends was very popular and so was she……but, really wasn’t she popular for being the cute one? I for one, don’t think that show is aging well, but for sure it had it’s moment.

        As for TV being her media, isn’t that where her films are actually seen and make their money?

      • Cleo says:

        “Tyler Durden,” “Jesse James,” the dolt in Burn After Reading, the damaged Dad in “babel?” the redneck in Basterds? — these are heroic people? You know, you really should stop that bad habit of disassembling Brad Pitt just because Aniston sucks and will always be a fool. It’s very transparent.

  14. Rhiley says:

    Did she really say, “There are so many exciting things I am excited about”? I hope she gets a pocket thesarus in her stocking this year.

  15. Dimebox says:

    I can imagine Justin saying “Please, can we just go one day without talking about your hair?”.
    Then in his sleep mumbling “No, no, not hair, anything but hair!”.

  16. Lisa says:

    I vote for her as the Most Interesting Person of 2013.

  17. nani says:

    She feels beautiful, but, unfortunately, she is not. Since she seems to be so fortunate and happy nowadays, being truly ugly, as she is, doesn’t make any difference at all… Eheheheh

  18. DreamyK says:

    How sad that she equates feeling beautiful because she has a (stolen) man. For all her New Age BS that is just…bizarre. Like she’s not complete without a guy? Is this a throw back to her non-existent relationship with her mother? idk. I raised my daughter to feel like a complete person and being comfortable with herself no matter if she is alone or with someone. She brings much more to the table when she does choose relationships because she’s not missing the other half of her soul or whatever the hell JA is spouting.

  19. Maggie says:

    She’ll never be forgiven for marrying Brad Pitt. One can belittle her all they want but the truth is she is very well liked, respected and successful. She was successful before Pitt and has remained so afterwards. It’s a fact. Get over it.

    • Scout says:

      She’ll never be forgiven for not turning her womb into a never-ending baby making machine for Pitt. No one cared about Jolie, her philanthropy or her looks until she stepped up and started popping out the kids.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        No–no one is shading her for not having kids with Brad. Most people are shading her because she turns it into a game–to promote her film. She talks about women not needing men to have kids (when promoting The Switch). She talks about getting married, making babies–then gets annoyed when people want her “barefoot and pregnant”. But I don’t care if she has a kid or not–I think it would be nice if she does, if that’s what she wants–but I don’t care.

        She has a very laissez-faire attitude about it–which isn’t wrong. But she’s 45. Either do it or don’t. But quit talking about it (which she has recently). But she created that monster, because in the first three years after she got divorced, she stated that she wanted kids badly–and backed off of it too late.

        I like Angelina BECAUSE of her philanthropy. There are plenty of actresses that I find absolutely gorgeous, funny, etc—but I don’t like them as much as Angelina BECAUSE I think that Angelina’s work is an inspiration. Because she grew up. Look up her interview with Barbara Walters after she adopted Maddox. Those were big changes in her life, that will always be interesting to hear about–I think especially for people my age. To see how someone grew up and became a better person.

        And after Angelina separated from Billy Bob she was in the tabloids plenty. I remember this interview she did–she had a film w/Oliver Martinez/Ethan Hawke–she already had Maddox at this point. Those two men and Angelina and Maddox went to a baseball game–the tabloids turned it into a love triangle, because Angelina stood next to both of them at the game, and was talking to them.

      • Kim1 says:

        Wow I didn’t know giving birth to three kids=never ending baby making machine.Aniston is a mediocre actress who has NEVER carried a film.Jolie carried Salt and the the lead actress on Maleficent (est budget $200 million).Hell would freeze over before Aniston could carry a big budget film .She has to be paired with a co lead examples Sandler,Vaughn,Owen Wilson.She will NEVER be a Award Winning film actress because of her limited acting skills.By Award Winning I mean GGs,SAGs,Oscars not Teen Choice or People’s Choice.

      • maggie says:

        Virg, so you dont like her because she’s not like Jolie? Because she spoke about having children then didn’t? Why the constant comparison? They’re seperate ppl. That’s why I made my comment. It all has to do with Pitt.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Maggie, I was responding to Scout, not you.
        I don’t like Jennifer, first and foremost because she can’t act. I find it annoying that she keeps talking about having kids and getting married–and then dating guys that clearly aren’t marriage material i.e. John Mayer. We’ll see what happens w/Justin. Either Heidi didn’t care about marriage or he’s just hustling Jennifer.
        At best, I’m very indifferent about her–I find her wedding drama interesting, but that’s about it. If you’ve ever read my comments–before she had those two PEOPLE covers out about her wedding being delayed, I never paid much attention to her.
        The only thing I don’t like about her(beyond her mediocre acting) is how much of a hypocrite she’s been since 2011. She praises Brad (and everything he did since he got w/Angelina i.e. had kids, made good films, produced, etc) like he’s the best thing ever, but feels the need to trash Angelina. She complains about a work photoshoot for MAMS (the Domestic Bliss one), because it’s insensitive that he’s doing a photoshoot w/his costar so soon after they separated and filed for divorce. But its perfectly okay for her to get with a guy who had a girlfriend, then deny it all over the place, and then release CANDID i.e. non work, lovey dovey photos of herself and said guy–less than two weeks after his girlfriend moved out of their apartment.
        But other than that–I’m rather neutral and I like the laugh at the snafus that she makes in interviews–like that crap with her hair cut. I’ve heard three different stories about why she cut it–two came from her mouth, one from her stylist. It’s unnecessary.
        I wasn’t comparing her to Angelina–Scout said that no one was interested in Angelina until she ‘turned into a babymaking machine’ (which is very offensive), that no one cared about her philanthropy, her kid, etc until she got with Brad. I’m saying that I like her BECAUSE of those things–not because she’s with Brad.

      • Ennie says:

        Angelina had two pregnancies. Two.
        Baby making machine?

    • emmie_a says:

      Maggie: I never knew there was backlash for her marrying Brad Pitt.

      Scout: I don’t think anybody cares if Jen has babies. Or if she doesn’t have babies. I think the issue is with her always talking about it and trying to elicit sympathy for her life. And I don’t agree w/your Jolie comment. I think her philanthropic endeavors would have gotten noticed with or without kids. She has always had some depth to her and maybe her kids magnified that but her character is not dependent on her kids.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        I agree with both your comments, emmie_a

      • Scout says:

        Not sure what part of the world you have been living in for the past ten years, but people are totally obsessed with whether Aniston has kids which is why we have gotten a million rumors about, a million covers about it and why Aniston can’t even wear a sweater without people freaking out. People endlessly ask her about it even after she has now spent several years telling people “if it happens, it happens, if not that’s OK”.

        People are equally obsessed with Jolie’s children which is why we have so many photos of them on the street, photos of them at home, photos of them w/ Jolie in Vanity Fair, not to mention the endless interviews about their private time at home, their personalities etc. If the kids weren’t such a huge part of their brand, Brad and Angelina would have never been able to pocket $33 million for global rights to the kids.

        I would like to go to this place you live in just so I can be in a place where no one cares about any of that as you claim. Btw, where is this place? Mars?

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        She talked about having babies–saying ‘relax, it’s going to happen’ almost three years ago (this was in February 2011). THIS coupled with comments she’s made before about having kids, is why people are still wondering why she hasn’t had kids. To be fair to her, she’s backed off of it recently (this past summer she said that the baby question bothered her)–but this is why people are still asking. Because she made it clear, and repeated it several times over the years that she would have kids–but she was 36 when she got divorced. No spring chicken, in terms of having a biological child. Bottom line is this–if she wanted a kid she’d have one, one way or another.

        And the JP kids are rarely photographed, compared to other celebrity kids (it was mentioned on the Ben Affleck post yesterday)–it’s just that when they are, it’s a big deal and it’s everywhere.

      • Lopusta says:

        Maggie and Scout wow wow wow! Your comments are So mean especially scout who is So emotional when people attack Jen but what you say about jolie and popping out kids is So So demeaning to womanhood. Its such a shame. All I can do is to smh

      • emmie_a says:

        Scout: Yes. I live on Mars. Celebitchy is huge here! Come visit some time – I’ll take you to Mars’ most popular attraction, AngelinaLand. It’s very much like your Disney World but totally devoted to all things Angie.

      • TC says:

        Agree with emmie_a. The nearly 9-year pity party is the issue (at least for me). Although she has talked about wanting kids since 1998 when she revealed to People Magazine back then that she wanted to be “a young mom.” So that might be an issue for some folks.

    • Kim1 says:

      Aniston’s claim to fame is the Rachel haircut and being dumped by Brad Pitt.She has been doing films for 17 years and still hasn’t cracked the $10 million salary mark.She is a B list actress.Compare her career to Sandra,Reese,Cameron even Katherine Heigle other actresses who started with Romcoms or Comedies.If she is so talented and so loved why is her career so stagnant .She is relatable to a certain demo because she is not beautiful ,not smart and she is unlucky in love” Poor

    • Esmom says:

      I agree, Maggie. I think people were floored when someone less than A-list and improbably gorgeous managed to land Brad Pitt. It was like a fairy tale. So I’m not sure why people turned on her so heavily when they split — maybe outrage that she couldn’t hang on to him? It’s truly baffling to me.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I would say that it says something about any guy–let alone Brad Pitt–when they don’t date/marry women who have supermodel looks. Besides Robin Givens, Angelina is really the only drop dead gorgeous woman that he’s ever been with. I do think JA is very pretty–I think she looks better with her darker hair–but she’s more of a down to earth, relatable, girl next door beauty. She definitely has an interesting look–like Barbara Streisand. I wish she’d own that.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        People turned on JA? What people? I remember a wave of sympathy for JA in the wake of the split, and for a long time after. Although eventually there was a backlash, but that didn’t come for a long while.

        It seemed to me that people didn’t blame her or even Brad for the split– they seemed to want to blame, well, a third party. The third party who seems to have taken much more criticism than either of the actual parties involved in the breakup, which doesn’t seem right to me.

      • Maggie says:

        Looks are subjective. In my opinion Aniston is far better looking than Angelina. Angie is very pretty in the face but that’s it. And to say Jennifer’s career is stagnant???? Give your head a shake. And saying she can’t act? So she’s continually hired for being unable to act? I need a more intelligent conversation. Over and out!

      • Esmom says:

        @Amy Tennant:
        “People turned on JA? What people?”

        I was referring to all the negative comments she tends to generate here. But I agree that at first people did want to blame Jolie for the split.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Maggie looks AND acting skills are a matter of opinion–what Jennifer does, she’s good at it–I find her schtick annoying–just like I’m sure that some people find JLO’s acting annoying. It’s opinion. She can’t act in my opinion–I’ve only seen her in one role that I liked her in (Horrible Bosses). But she can’t be the cute girl forever (Meg Ryan anyone? And Meg Ryan could act–I saw her in ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’), so I’m glad she’s going into directing.

        I don’t think she got any backlash up until 2009, after the ‘Angelina is uncool’ quote came out–when she threw Vogue under the bus. Shortly after that, a Vogue Uk editor said that Jennifer wouldn’t be appearing on any of their covers because she wants copy approval i.e. she wants to have approval of the layout. So she couldn’t even complain about putting that quote on the cover–because SHE approved it.

        And I agree w/blaming Angelina for the split–part of it IS sexism. I remember Diane Sawyer asking Brad “Did Angelina break up your marriage?” NOT “Did you sleep with Angelina while married?” I think phrasing it like that gets more ratings, and it makes her appear that she’s on the ‘popular’ side.
        Also, I think it’s because Jennifer made it clear, in both VF and Vogue that she had no issues whatsoever with Brad–but she had issues w/Angelina.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        Oh, okay. Well, yeah, here there are people on both sides. And Pollyannas like me who kinda like them both and wish everyone could just end up happy. ;)

      • Janet says:

        Esmom: Actually, when they split, the comments on the internet were running about 20 to 1 in favor of Aniston and against Jolie. The level of vituperation against Jolie had to be read to be believed. It was bad enough that Aniston’s fans were wishing death on Jolie and slandering her in every way, shape and form; but dragging her children into it was totally beyond the pale. I was neutral at first; I really didn’t care much about any of the three of them; but the comments from Aniston’s partisans drove me into Jolie’s camp. I kept asking myself, what kind of celebrity could attract fans like that?

        It has only been in the past four or five years that people have turned against Aniston and realized how classy Jolie behaved in never responding to any of the slander leveled at her by Aniston’s fans and the tabloids.

      • Josephina says:

        @VC and Amy Tenant–

        Please don’t let Maggie and Scout con you. Aniston, is like a sad spook; she is not a victim, she just gets in her own way.

        Aniston thought that Brad would come back to her. Yeah, right… Come back for what exactly?

        Her dating track record speaks volumes. Jokers at every turn when with her, but yet they get serious, marry and have babies with other women once they leave her.

        Aniston has played herself as the 5th wheel for years. There was never a love triangle. The truth came out, thanks to Brad. There was never the “golden couple”; he was bored to death and found inspiration through leaving her. Ouch!!

        ALL of her public comments about Angelina have been unnecessary. Whether she channeled it indirectly through Laura Dern, Courtney Cox, Jason Bateman, Chelsea Handler, Sheryl Crow,… not ONE of them should have felt comfortable about expressing opinions about her failed marriage to ANY media outlet. They talked about it because SHE talked about it… and talked… and talked. A woman who does NOT take ANY responsibility for the demise of her marriage is a woman-child by choice and receives no coddling from me.

        Everyone does not have to know that you have a snarky and jealous nature. We get it. You were no longer receiving Brad’s affection, attention and love. Instead, Aniston wanted the world to shame Brad into returning to her.

        I see Ticky as the women scorned, still miffed that Angelina stole what she thinks could have been her endearing personal life and her perception of fame.

        Never mind that that her diarrhea of the mouth to the media and TV shows only made people doubt her ability to know what is right for her. I do not like insecure, immature women who attack other women knowing full well that the man simply lost interest in you. Furthermore, I do not like catty women who gang up and create rumors and gossip about pretty women simply because they are intimidated by their sex appeal, beauty and success.

        The truth of the matter is her post-divorce behavior was juvenile and stunted her growth in acting. She needs to own up to this. She was not pouring ANYTHING into her roles other than the dog movie. This is a woman who spent too much time trying to keep up with the JPs instead of working on herself.

        There is NO other actress that carried her ex-husband and his new wife and family through the media mud the way Aniston has. Her behavior with her Goddess Circle of Friends has been nothing short of what we see on the RHOBH and the RHOOC reality TV series: embarrassing, desperate and less so exemplary of women empowerment. At the end of the day her acting chops have not improved, and she wasted wilingly 8-9 years hating on a woman because the love and affection she once had reached a dead end.

      Wrong, her marrying Pitt has never had anything to do with it. She will never be forgiven for character assassinating an innocent women and her innocent 6 children.

    • Cleo says:

      She’ll never be forgiven by some of us, for putting being a ‘woman scorned by Brad Pitt,’ as her main entry on her career resume. She’s very blatantly set out to be the eternal victim, and demonize her ex’s woman – encouraging her pathetic enablers (like the gross Handler who shares her pr flack) to beat up on Jolie. If she was a woman of substance, grace and class I’d have no problem with her – but the tell all, crying on Oprahs chest, kicking up dust even more years later (‘Uncool’) and starting a whole new catfight with the vile insult dog Chelsea, all while playing ‘who me?’ It’s disgusting. It’s clear why anyone who’s with her eventually has to make like a bat outta hello. Says a lot about hungry for fame The-heaux that he’s stuck around this long (or has he?)

    Why doesn’t she just say “I am my hair” and have done with it?

    I give her credit: as spokeperson she does a great job.

    “…I love doing something different and changing it up” Really? Her hair usually looks the same, her makeup & clothes are always the same, she always goes to Mexico, does her yoga, drinks her water, downs her margaritas… It’s the usual Jen schtick, the same things we see/hear about from her. I don’t associate her with change at all.

    And I don’t believe that her *style* is as simple as she makes it seem. I get the feeling she is super high-maintenance (aren’t there weekly photos of her going to the spa?) and uses every high priced beauty product she can find but likes to pretend she has the California cool vibe.

    “My life is so fantastic. I’m so happy.” sounds like something LeAnn Rimes says.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      “…I love doing something different and changing it up” Really?

      Well, she had it straight and light brown and then it was straight and light brown with blonde highlights and then it was straight and just blonde………
      …and yeah, she’s basically always had some very subtle variation of the exact same hairstyle—which is fine, but it’s laughable for her to make it seem like she’s so adventurous and experimental with her appearance.

      • emmie_a says:

        Yeah I sort of rolled my eyes at myself as I was typing my comment bc I’ve been the same way with my hair for years — same hairstyle w/subtle variations… but I don’t pretend that I’m so adventurous w/my hair — bc I’m not. Wish I were though!!

    I actually have liked Aniston a lot over the years, but her fakeness is getting to me. Is she capable of giving anything other than canned PR?

  24. Bea says:

    She is always good for a laugh.

  25. Camille (TheOriginal) says:


    But the Forbes list thing was interesting. It also doesn’t surprise me. She needs to stick to supporting/small roles. She is not, nor has she ever been ‘leading lady’ material.

  26. Lucky Charm says:

    Her favorite hairstyle: “Well, that’s a good question because I just chopped it all off! I’m loving it right now. It’s right below my ear. I went short! But I do that every couple of years. It’s just nice to do something different. We were at a photo shoot the other day and I just said let’s chop it off! It was one of those moments. I love doing something different and changing it up, but at the end of the day, I’m a lover of long hair. I just think it’s beautiful. I would have to say that’s my go-to fave.”

    Hold on there, back up JA. I distinctly remember when you had your hair cut short when you got your star on the walk of fame, you complained about it and said that you hated it. And mentioned something about looking like a soccer mom. But now you think “it’s nice to do something different”, and you “love doing something something different and changing it up”??? This from the person that has had basically the same hairstyle for the past 15 years, ever since the Rachel (that you also claimed to hate) grew out. Ok. If the truth is too hard to remember, try writing down crib notes of what you say so that you don’t contradict yourself later on.

    Another boring Aniston pr campaign for products she don’t use and to deflect the breakup rumors. Also, they need to stop with the best hair comments Aniston’s hair always looks like a cat thrown up hair ball turned into a birds nest to me. Her hair is fried and she has been using extensions for ever to fool her few adoring fanatics. Her skin is a leathery mess. Aveeno needs to stop using her as their spokesperson with that over the top lighting they have to use to fade out the damage spots on her skin for their commercials. That lighting is so bright it hurts to look at the tv screen when it is on, so I usually just turn the channel. This person is constantly papped going to skin clinics to get her skin burned and filers and it still don’t reverse the sun damage. There is nothing real about this person she is all pr show. She has lied so much about her life to the point she don’t remember the lie she told 30 minutes ago. There is no depth to this person and I wonder how long Justin will stay knowing that he is a weird but came from a pretty intellectual family background. Hearing um, well, you know, & literally all day has to dumb a smart man down at some point. I guess for now the perks are too high for him and he just puts up with it and remember that he is cashing checks that he only wished he could cash and living a lifestyle for free that he only dreamed of. I guess being a male gigolo is not so bad.
    The real men left Aniston and never looked back.

    SHOES4LIFE great comment and well articulated I want to give you a hug right now ;) :)

  29. Meandyou says:

    She sounds like robotic Katie Holmes circa 2006. Fantastic! Awesome! Lucky!

    Go take a hike Aniston and stop boring us with your lame updates.

    Everytime I read or hear an interview from Jennifer – I just want to bang my head on the walls. How can someone be so boring, repetitive, vain, fake, and dumb? Seriously she is without a doubt one of the if not the least intelligent people in Hollywood.

    I now understand why she never gives live interviews and why everything has to be pre approved before releasing – it’s because she is not articulate, smart & intelligent enough to hold a real conversation. It’s always about hair, beauty and how happy she is – in every interview these past 10 years or so everything is the same except her current bedmate – just change the partner’s name.

    Plus as several have already mentioned – this woman is the biggest liar and hypocrite in Hollywood. Always liars about her hair/beauty treatments, relationships and friendships.

  31. Sal says:

    Huvane is doing damage control. Incidentally, she just yet again, slammed her time married to Brad with that ‘in my 30s’ comment, yet I bet no one picks up on it and she gets a free pass as she always does. If Brad said it, people would want to string him up.

    • Josephina says:

      I noticed the comment, Sal.

      He left the marriage so he could find his true purpose. He is extremely successful, living the life he always dreamed of.

      Here’s the thing: Brad does not need endorsement nor validation of any kind from Aniston. He is a much bigger movie star than he has ever been in the past. She is useless to him. His validation as a sexy man, do-gooder and great father and partner comes from his great love, Angie, and his close-knit family and friends. Aniston is NOT in that circle of trust.

    • maggie says:

      You two read too many Harlequin Romances. LMAO

    • Cleo says:

      Brad slammed her first, so her comments are just bitter noise. LOL I actually couldn’t believe it — Brad had already said he was miserable and bored 10 yrs ago (smack dab in the aniston era, lol) and of course he was attacked by her cat lady enablers and pr flack into clarifying what he meant…then he did it again not too long ago (“stuck pretending my marriage was something that it wasn’t') Ker-POW!! Hahaha.

    What I find most interesting about the commenters on here who prefer another actress to Ms. Aniston is that most are nothing like the actress they all worship. While she seems to be a caring and nurturing woman, most of the fans on this site appear to be very nasty and hostile – nothing like your beloved AJ. Maybe you should all take a page out of her book and try to be a little more classy.
