Jennifer Aniston in Saint Laurent at ‘Life of Crime’ premiere: unflattering or cute?


These are some of the most depressing premiere pics I’ve ever seen of Jennifer Aniston. She was premiering Life of Crime in LA, and it was like someone just told her that Santa Claus isn’t real. She looks like she’s about to cry in nearly all of the pics! What’s up, Jen? Not only that, but she totally looks pregnant in this Saint Laurent ensemble. My guess: she was boozing it up and maybe eating some pasta just before the red carpet. Either that or the sparkly little dress isn’t that flattering.

As for Life of Crime, People Magazine had a nice interview with Jennifer where she talks about her 1970s socialite character and how she based the look on her mom, Nancy Aniston, in the ‘70s. When talking about the Elmore Leonard source material, she said: “I love how he writes his characters… I thought [my character] had such a beautiful arc and a powerful one. In that time, to write that for a woman in the ’70s was pretty awesome.” She also said she wants to produce and direct more stuff and this is what she’s drawn to: “I love human experience. I love human beings and behavior and relationships, and it will probably have something to do with that.”

Jennifer also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and he made her do a sort-of Friends reunion. Does she really not know what “fan-fiction” is? Does this bit sort of fall flat or is it just me? And yes, she seems stoned.

    Yikes not a good look for her at all! It does bulge and makes her look pregnant. I am cracking up since this photo is on the heels of her saying stop asking me about kids thing. I am sure the mini-van majority is going to be saying, “see! she totally is pregnant and loves kids!”

    • Brin says:

      Yep, definitely looks preggo, bad timing with her comments.

    • Logan says:

      This! Thank you So very much!
      I was on justjared and her fans were So happy saying she is pregnant and totally rocking a baby bump and she is finally going to have the last laugh ( I do wonder what that means). The same people were saying yesterday she didn’t need to have kids to be happy. The irony of life.

      • starrywonder says:

        Yeah well I think she did it on purpose. She knows how to get press and get her name out there. She just got gossipblocked by her ex though lol. I am cracking up over it myself.

      • Frida_K says:

        Well, earlier today I saw on my yahoo page a headline about Jen being “devastated by a miscarriage” and I just rolled my eyes. I didn’t click on the link because it looked like something akin to the National Enquirer, but I did think to myself that it was a matter of time before the “Jen suffers a miscarriage” headlines appeared and–voilà–sure enough, one did.

        *eyes rollin’ rollin’ rollin’, keep those doggies rollin’*

    • Ruyana says:

      She’s just setting the stage for yet another tabloid cover. The outfit is most unfortunate on every level I can think of. Her face is totally “meh”. Her claim to fame is her great body and she stuffed it in a silver sack.

    • Becky1 says:

      Not a good look although I like her hair this length. I don’t think she’s pregnant-she didn’t look pregnant on Jimmy Kimmel. I think it’s the dress and some bloat (which I understand-it’s that wonderful time of the month for me right now and if I were a celeb I’m sure someone would be saying that have a “baby bump”). Her stylist shouldn’t have let her wear this.

  2. Victoria 1 says:

    Maybe She’s bloated from boozing it up. And the shoes look uncomfortable? I’m sounding too logical on this thread. Adios

  3. Stoner says:

    One look at the bust and you can tell that dress does not fit her the way it did when she bought it, hence the last minute jacket.

    Or maybe she realized her boobs aren’t as fab as she thought they were.

    Either way, she looks a mess – this is seriously Cracken-level fuggery with better shoes.

  4. mimif says:

    Hm. Disco ball with a jacket looks like it’s making a baby disco ball. But worth is not based on baby disco balls or relationships only, so I’ll just say pretty hair!

  5. Shelley says:

    Ummmm…she looks so beautiful. Her skin looks amazing and as for her looking pregnant/bloated I really don’t see it.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      You’re kidding right? Look at that last pic on the post…..her stomach is sticking farther out than her boobs, and it looks like her belly button is sticking out through the dress.

      Bloated, pregnant, WHATEVER….this is a horrible look.

      • starrywonder says:

        I love that on Lainey she pretty much threw it out there that JA knew how that photo would be perceived so she could get people talking about her maybe being pregnant again. And I have to say everyone yesterday was all hurrah on her having kids but as soon as this photo came out the same people were saying see she’s having the last laugh.

    • Nina says:

      I agree Shelley, it’s the way the light is hitting the beading and the fold in the centre of the dress (obvious when you look at the hem of the dress) which is giving the appearance of a bulge. I don’t see pregnant or bloat. It’s ill-fitting at the bust but sorta cute.

    • The Original G says:

      She looks all legs and no neck. The jacket does not fit either. Her make-up, the orange day-glo and the whole look is really aging. A dress that might have looked fresh and hip on someone her daughters age, looks “Real Housewives of the Margarita Fountain,” here.

    • She's fine says:

      I agree that she looks lovely. So she has a belly for a sec. Or the light hits the sequins wrong. Who doesn’t. Who cares. What a bunch of trolls.

    • Josephine says:

      I don’t think she looks good at all. My first reaction was, “well, age catches up with all of us eventually.” She looks so dull – no life in her at all. Her hair looks awful and the dress is so unflattering. She could do so much better, but she can’t seem to ditch her formula – super short dress, ugly sandal heels, hair in her face. I would love to see her embrace a more sophisticated look – what worked when you were 20 is not going to work when you are 45.

  6. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Wtf is she wearing? It makes her boobs look saggy and sad.

    And she does look really dour. Why?

    EDIT: Whoa, just looked at the other pics, hadn’t even noticed her stomach. Wow. What did she eat/drink?

  7. Steph says:

    I would actually like to see her with a youthful and voluminous ponytail. Does anyone else agree?

    • Jlee says:

      She does?! Kate Hudson has unfortunate ears too.

    • dpatz says:

      @ steph and paola: She has though. Many times. Just have to google it. And no she doesn’t have dumbo ears!

      • doofus says:

        I was just going to say this. I seem to remember her wearing a high pony tail in those pics of her with the “cupping” marks on her back…that were featured on this site.

        and back then, everyone said she deliberately wore the pony tail to show the cupping marks.

        If she switches it up, she’s a fame whore. If she doesn’t switch it up, she’s boring. I swear, this woman cannot win, no matter what she does.

        ETA: this was in response to dpatz #41

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        @doofus #43
        She should do a ponytail more often….but I don’t think her hair is long enough for it.

        But I remember those cupping photos. They were awful. If I’m remembering right, people said she did it deliberately, because she had the cupping marks (which stood out really well because she was tan everywhere else) in a low cut jumpsuit outfit, and had her hair in the ponytail (which she never does put her hair up….I think that’s the only time I remember her pulling her hair back into a ponytail)….but if she did it on purpose or not (and I don’t see how not, because the cupping marks were there) who cares? They’re cupping marks. I don’t know why she wanted to show them off…’s harmless.

        And it’s not a mean, cruel, horrible thing to say that she pulled her hair up and wore a backless outfit to show off the cupping marks…..because it’s true. It was deliberate.

      • Jayna says:

        She’s worn her hair in ponytails or up plenty of times over the years. Although, I wouldn’t put it past her that it was intentional that night to show the cupping . Who really knows? But I tend to cover things up I don’t want shown.

      • dpatz says:

        why intentional – what is the purpose of showing off the cup marks?

      • doofus says:

        (I apologize if this sounds snotty because I don’t mean it to…sorry…) it may be the only time you remember but she’s done it plenty. just google “aniston ponytail” and you’ll see.

        as for the cupping thing, I KNOW a lot of people say she did it on purpose, but I don’t buy that. I didn’t characterize the “it was deliberate” opinion as “mean”, “cruel” or “horrible”, and I don’t think the speculation of intent is any of those things. it’s a valid opinion, just one I don’t agree with. they did look awful and I think it was because she tried to use make up to cover them up and it dribbled/ran. which, again, leads me to believe that it was not deliberate…in her home, it prob looked OK and on the RC, with the bright lights and flashes, it didn’t.

        My only point was that her detractors complain about her being so boring, but if she switches it up, they complain that she must have some ulterior motive for it. that’s all.

        ETA: response to VC up above…

      • eva says:

        @doofus no.65

        Split the difference, she’s a boring famewhore.

    • Janet says:

      @Steph: No. The more she tries to look “youthful” the worse the results get. She’s 45 and she should embrace her age. Halle Berry is 46 or 47 and looks drop-dead gorgeous.

      P.S. This post should show up right underneath yours; something got mixed up.

  8. DanaG says:

    Jen needs to wear a bra she can’t get away with letting the girls hang free either. I think it’s the dress and that awful jacket but Jen doesn’t look happy so the movie probably sucks or she heard Justin had fun without her. LOL

  9. hutter says:

    That Kimmel skit had zero laughs in it (hence the canned laughter, I guess).

  10. Jenns says:

    Doesn’t matter how good you look for your age, at a certain point, you will always need a bra.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I completely agree, but I said that one time and got ripped apart, called misogynist, old lady, mean and I forget what all. But we’re correct. Lol

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I don’t think anyone looks good braless…..I just feel awkward when I see people without one. Because I don’t want to be rude and stare (because seriously, my eyes zero in like one of those ‘Where’s Waldo?’ puzzles), but I’m going to.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Agree. I also hate it when women walk around naked in the locker room and you have to spend all your time looking at the floor and the ceiling. I know it’s my own problem, but I just wish they would put on a towel or their underwear.

      • Ag says:

        i agree, ladies. my boobs used to be small and perky and, with some outfits, i used to be able to not wear a bra. no longer the case, as they are bigger and not so perky anymore. a bra only makes them look better, fuller, perkier, etc.

        re locker rooms, i can’t even start on that. i’m permanently traumatized by people’s incessant need to showcase themselves naked to others in ways that are the exact opposite of what anyone wants to see, ever.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        We’ve discussed this before around here, GNAT, and I’m with you on the locker-room phobia.

        It sucks because the locker room at my gym is amazing-blow—-dry bar (not blow-job bar), eucalyptus steam room, Jacuzzi, really nice showers, and various spa treatments. But the risk that I’ll see some lady’s wobbly bits prevents me from enjoying all the amenities.
        I’m forced to change in a bathroom stall downstairs like a f*cking weirdo.

        I only go braless when I’m wearing one of my stylish-yet-casual muumuus in the privacy of my own home. I’ve never gone braless in public.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I’ve always wanted a stylish-yet-casual muumuu to wear around my house! Where did you get it, Kitten?

        I am fine changing in front of people…but I just can’t with the communal baths at spas. Just, no.

      • Tiffany :) says:

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Oh a friend of mine tried to get me to go a communal bath and I was HELL NO.

        @Tiff-You can get muumuus almost anywhere–just aim straight for the old lady section in women’s wear at any department store. There’s also The Muumuu Emporium, Muumuus-R-Us, MuuMuu Liquidator, and The Muumuu Mart.
        In an emergency, I buy them out of the back of some guy’s truck parked across from the projects. Those are a flimsier quality but they work in a pinch.

      • mimif says:

        I’m dyinggg right now. Y’all are freaking nuts today. :D

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        …and Muumuu World has a great BOGO sale on Thursdays.
        You don’t even have to try this shizz on either–it’s like one-size-fits-all, dude. Some are even made in stain-repellant fabric so slobs like myself can eat barbecue chicken freely. No muss, no fuss, BBQ sauce just rolls off the front of the muumuu like magic.

        Look what you ladies did! Y’all got me started on my muumuus. I could talk muumuus for hours….

      • Tiffany :) says:

        In the muumuu insanity, I triple posted! So sorry for the clutter!

        Mariah Carey’s episode of cribs really inspired me in the pajama-wear as home-wear area. I think she needs to open a shop called Mimi’s Muumuus. You know she’d be an expert!

      • mimif says:

        Come on Tiffany, your triple post clearly indicates you’re bananas for muumuus.

        F-cking brilliant on the stain free fabric, Kitten. Mine has a custom tailored drink holder, well, more like a camel back sewn in that’s currently filled with Miraval.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        You need a drink holder? I just place the wine glass in my cleavage. ;)

  11. jessica6 says:

    Egads, no, no, no. The dress looks very ill fitting – especially in the bosum dept, and in my opinion, is much too short. Plus, she needs to dress as a 45 year old woman – she’s not 25 any longer. A more classic ensemble would very much flatter her.

    • Lori says:

      I agree with you. Despite all the green smoothies and yoga, she is thickening in the chest and middle area. I’m not saying she’s getting fat, just that she spreading out a little. And her clothing choice here is so poor for her shape. Also I do believe that she trolls us on pregnancy and marriage just so she can complain about people asking.

  12. Lilacflowers says:

    The squawking and whining during the Kimmel bit were incredibly annoying.

  13. Logan says:

    Coughs! Later this woman’s fans will say she isn’t playing the pregnancy game my God look at what she is wearing! Anytime Jennifer Aniston has a movie coming out it always ends up bringing pregnancy speculations every damn time. Wow this is becoming so ridiculous.
    Jennifer Aniston was so pissed you can clearly see it on her face, she was this close on punching Jimmy in the face,I don’t know i didn’t like it because Jennifer was forced to do it to avoid embarrassment on TV which ended up not being funny or nostalgic.

  14. tracking says:

    I like the idea of the outfit, but the fit is definitely a problem.

  15. paola says:

    the dress looks fifty shades of wrong.
    The bust sits too low and it gives her a 6 month pregnant belly.
    It’s probably the lighting but it’s no an excuse. It looks bad.

  16. LK says:

    Perhaps she just strapped some pillows around her waist to make the pregnancy rumor go round again. That’s usually her movie promo MO right?

  17. Toot says:

    The jacket makes her look like she’s hunched over, breast area looks like she needs support, and she does look down.

    That skit was unfunny and stupid.

  18. tracking says:

    The skit was a fun idea, but lacked pizazz. Kudrow and Aniston look tremendous, little changed, but Cox makes me sad. The face of course, but talk about not dressing for your age. Really not a fan of skimpy lingerie camisoles on mature women, even those with great bodies. But their choice, I suppose.

  19. lisa2 says:

    She has great legs.

    The dress is not good. I think yes it does create another round of baby bump rumors. I saw a picture of her in a black dress and you can see there was no bump.

    Were there any fans at the premier.. I didn’t see a crowd. They really have done very little PR for a film coming out on Friday. Maybe that is because it is also on VOD..

    • dpatz says:

      Ok. Isn’t this movie an indie though? Why is there an expectation that it be wide released?

      • Lea says:

        It has a budget of 12 million. It will be very hard to make that up with 33 theaters…..what a flop.
        There is little competition this weekend, so they could have done a wide release. But Aniston has no star power on her own, so the film is being dumped.

      • Josephine says:

        Not sure why this would an indie. It’s basically Ruthless People done again, and that movie was a big hit and well done. I think it’s odd that they have no expectations for this one and couldn’t get funding for a bigger release.

      • lisa2 says:

        I would imagine with her status that the film would open in more than 33 theaters. I would guess that her fans would be be able to fill at least 100+ theaters.

        I was wondering if they thought they would recoup the money at the VOD money. But they didn’t promote the film until this week. That is crazy to me. And why didn’t the other cast members promote or do any interviews.

      • TC says:

        With a production budget of $12M, they probably can’t afford a big marketing push for this film. Hence the reason it’s only opening in 33 theaters and going to VOD at the same time. They’re probably hoping to recoup the production and P&A costs. I doubt there’s any expectation this film will make a profit.

        lisa2 – Not sure why the other cast members aren’t at the premiere. It’s possible they could be busy working on other projects.

  20. JudyK says:

    Yo, Jennifer–you apparently had too much to drink and forgot the pants that go w/ the top.

  21. MrsBPitt says:

    I have a friend who drinks wine every night…she is thin everywhere except her stomach…always looks like she is pregnant…just like this picture of Anniston…

    If she is purposely putting on this preggo look, after talking about not needing kids to make her feel like a woman, then she is psycho…if she is preggo…good for her…

    I just don’t understand her popularity….

  22. Luca26 says:

    I think she’s trying to look like a serious actress or something but she would have done better with a suit. She really does look like she’s hungover or something not a great look.

  23. Esmom says:

    Hair and makeup look good, dress and jacket look sad. To me she looks like someone who is not happy with what they are wearing, wonder why she didn’t choose something else. Not a good feeling.

  24. Jayna says:

    She’s wearing her hair a little shorter, blunt cut with some angles cut in, and it’s more flattering than her longer, flat-ironed hair where her hair was looking so damaged, or her extensions, whatever she had. I like that she’s darkened her hair a bit from the really blonde look she has been doing off and on for years. Two thumbs up for her hair style and color. I still wish she would go a little lighter on her tanning

    I think the dress is cute with the jacket and probably just a bad angle to the shot. The shoes are the same look she always goes for. No surprise there.

  25. The Original G says:

    Dear Jen, I love Elmore Leonard too, but there have been great female literary figures since the ancients Greeks. Look it up.

  26. Bea says:

    Kudos to the well paid PR team of Aniston.

    She gives a big interview about how having kids does not define her and then wears something that makes her look pregnant. They do know how to get her stans going.

  27. Sofia says:

    Well I see PR Huvane game and I don’t care if someone will attack me for saying that. But Brad and Angelina are married, she must have known about that and so we see this dress on her and she usually never wears a dress that isn’t flattering to her body. Gosh, that triangle will go on forever I guess.

  28. poppy says:

    maybe she heard the marriage news?

  29. CommentingBunny says:

    Were these pics taken after The Wedding? Maybe she had a heads up on the announcement and the sad face and bump-watch inspiring dress are intended to pull some focus to her. She’s gorgeous and her body is slamming. It can NOT be that hard to find something that shows it off instead of making her look pregnant.

    • dpatz says:

      But i don’t think the dress makes her look pregnant. She’s done like a bunch of television appearances in two days where it doesn’t look like it. Anyone thinking she’s suddenly pregnant because of loose fitting dress is willing a narrative that doesn’t exist. Plain and simple.

      Also – don’t think she looks down or anything. And I would think that her only reaction to the wedding would be: PISSED. It’s right during her promotion week! Don’t know why she’d be sad – marriage is a mere formality for the Jolies. They have 6 kids!

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I don’t know if it’s the light or what, but if I saw her in the street like that, I would think that she was pregnant. But who knows? Maybe a gust of wind blew up her dress…..maybe she had a huge lunch. I hate dresses with empire waist lines because they do that….

      • dpatz says:

        I think bump watch is ridiculous in general, because you NEVER know for sure until 6 months in anyway, so why not just let the mother confirm it?

        My point was more, why do we assume she is trying to generate publicity by wearing a dress where she “looks pregnant” when the day before she didn’t look it, and publicly said she’s not pregnant or that she doesn’t think the pressure is fair? Just confused how that would be the conclusion we are jumping to …

      • doofus says:

        “why do we assume she is trying to generate publicity by wearing a dress where she “looks pregnant” when the day before she didn’t look it”

        stop being so logical. you’re ruining the fun of people who insist that this is “her MO” when promoting a movie. /sarcasm

        people will believe what they want to about this woman, and if it fits their narrative of how she “plays the pregnancy game” then they’ll run with it. but as you aptly pointed out, last night she wore something that clearly shows she’s not pregnant, so I really don’t see how this could be a “I might be preggo” ploy.

  30. OhDear says:

    It’s not the most flattering dress, but at least it’s different from her usual style?

  31. Samantha says:

    She’s baby-baiting like she always does to drum up interest in whatever crappy movie she’s promoting. She’s so predictable

  32. kcarp says:

    How old is she? Is she close to 50? When does the baby baiting stop? A normal non Hollywood, non Duggar person usually isn’t going back and forth if they want kids or not in their late 40′s. If she wanted kids I am pretty sure she would have already had one or go get her one in Africa or something. She doesn’t want a baby

  33. PHD Gossip says:

    kaiser – you nailed it. You said above she looks sad and depressed and then we hear Brad and Angie got married.
    she was suffering and it showed. The eternal triangle.

  34. DavidBowie says:

    She looks rough like her friend Chelsea Handler.

  35. Sarah says:

    She knows full well what she is doing at this point. Brangelina get married over the weekend and suddenly Jen is sporting a “bump.” Gee….transparent and desperate much?

  36. TheRealMaya says:

    Jennifer suffers from Peter Pan syndrome – that’s all I have to say.

  37. Paloma says:

    I am suspicious as to the timing of this flurry of publicity she has generated and Brad’s marriage. I think she knew.

  38. lower-case deb says:

    i think poor her. people will now seek her out and ask her about Brad’s marriage. (or is this good for her movie? more incidental publicity).

    theoretically i like the dress, vintage style, but i think the cut could be better.
    St Laurent is very sack-y, especially since Slimane likes to dress Angelina nowadays.

  39. Kate2 says:

    Well, I guess I’m a weirdo because I don’t think she looks bad at all. I think she looks pretty, in fact. I love the dress. I don’t think its too young for her, either. Its not cut to her navel and she’s wearing a modest, classic jacket over it. Its definitely short but she’s got great legs.

    And I love that jacket. I’m always looking for a classic, black fitted cropped jacket that goes with everything. That is exactly what I am looking for.

    I’m with everyone on the no bra thing, though. I don’t think anyone should do it at any age unless you have mosquito bites for boobs. But again, she’s mostly covered up by the jacket so I’m not overly offended.

    As for the dress being some kind of statement or reaction to the Brangelina wedding, give me a break. To assume anyone’s mood based on some pics is just ridiculous. I’d be shocked if she gave a crap.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I think she looked fine. After reading all the comments, I started questioning my own taste.

      As far as her purposefully choosing an ill-fitting dress just to create the illusion of a baby bump, I mean REALLY?
      Would she REALLY do that just to get people to whisper? I don’t know…maybe I’m naïve but it’s hard for me to believe that she really cares that much.

      • doofus says:

        see my comment up above.

        I agree, it’s really silly. but it fits the narrative of “pregnancy rumors when promoting” MO that people love to accuse her of.

        just last night on Kimmel she wore a dress that CLEARLY showed she is NOT pregnant so I cannot see how this could possibly be a “I might be preggo” ploy.

        but you well know how people feel about her so they project these intentions on her.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        +1,000,000, doofus.

        I swear, the Aniston threads are like a creative writing class.

      • Kate2 says:

        I started questioning my taste too. She’s 45, not 65. She doesn’t need to be Helen Mirren quite yet. (Not that Helen Mirren doesn’t look awesome.)

        And doofus’ point is excellent. She was JUST wearing all these form fitting clothes, but people think she’s going to wear a loose preggo dress hoping that people will forget about the tight ones, all to “show up” her ex? Huh? I thought she was vapid and dim? Wouldn’t a plot like that be over her head?

        honestly, I have to laugh at the lengths some will go to to perpetuate this crap.

        just yesterday (?), a poster said she was courting preggo rumors because she was (I kid you not) “barefoot and rubbing her belly” while on vaca with Theroux. I don’t know about you ladies, but when I’m on a beach vaca, I’m almost always barefoot, and if I eat too much, I rub my “belly”. (not to mention, it was a photo so I don’t know how the poster knew it was a “rub” and not just a “touch”) the other one was that she was courting the rumors because she was sucking on a lollypop as she came out of a medical building. a genuine “WTH are you talking about ?!” moment. My GP serves all ages, including adults with kids, and has a bucket of lollypops for any ones who might come in.

        @doofus -

        HA HA HA OHMYGOD. I saw those comments and thought the exact same thing. You should see the belly rubbing happening when my monthly eagle has landed or when I eat too much. You could start a fire with the friction.

        I have sucked on a lollypop coming out of my bank. They give them away for free there. Does that mean I’m pregnant with more money in my account?

        Caaaause that would be awesome.

        I had pickles for a snack this afternoon. ZOMGPREGNANT.

        I wore a loose-fitting dress the other day because I was on the rag and bloated as hell. ZOMGPREGNANT.

        I tied a sweater around my waist because I overdressed for the weather. ZOMGPREGNANT

        Aw, you guys got me. It’s all strategic to make the world think I’m *with child*.

        I saw the belly-rubbing comment yesterday. SMH. I’m not even an Aniston fan but I can’t help but think the lunacy behind some of the comments about her is indicative of a deeper problem. I mean, we all speculate here–it’s celeb gossip after all– but that just isn’t healthy.

        Personally, I think some of the things she’s done in regards to her image has been strategic and career-driven for sure–JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER CELEB ON THE PLANET.
        I think that people LOVE to ask her the baby/marriage question and she plays it to get press (because why not? They’re gonna ask anyway so..) but I also think that she’s genuinely changed her mind a LOT about marriage and having kids. I guess I get it because I’ve done the SAME thing. I mean, I change my mind CONSTANTLY about that sort of thing and I’m 35.

        If you asked me today how I felt I’d say “Yeah, I think I want to be married but I don’t want kids”, other times it’s “I’d like to have kids eventually, I’m good with kids” and other times it’s “I don’t want a husband or kids. I’m a free-spirit”. I’m just indecisive about it because it’s a HUGE commitment you know? I enjoy my freedom.

        Ugh. Sorry I just turned an ANiston post into something about me but I just meant to say that I RELATE to her in that sense.

        Anyway, it’s so weird how people hold her to one thing that she said at one time. I think Kiddo’s comments on that thread were really spot-on and most closely reflect what I feel about people’s reaction to her.

      • Esmom says:

        I thought the level of JA yesterday was so off the charts, I was taken aback. Agree that it isn’t healthy at all. I’m no fan either but I still can’t help wonder why this level of vitriol toward her even exists.

      • dpatz says:

        TheOrginalKitten – regarding your comment: ” I also think that she’s genuinely changed her mind a LOT about marriage and having kids. I guess I get it because I’ve done the SAME thing. I mean, I change my mind CONSTANTLY about that sort of thing and I’m 35.

I’m a free-spirit”. I’m just indecisive about it because it’s a HUGE commitment you know? I enjoy my freedom.”

        I relate! I’m in my late 20s and I go back and forth on what I want. My convictions are strong at that moment but I know they have oscillated (so maybe the convictions were not that strong – lol). I hope I’m not hung out to dry because my perspective changed. I also don’t assume Aniston’s perspective changed – it might be that she’s moved away from speaking about it in absolutes because it’s bitten her in the past.

        Clooney said he’d never get married and look at that! No one is crucifying him for it.

        yeah, I gotta wonder…I mean, I know that there are some superfans of Aniston who are cray cray and wish really horrible things on Jolie and her kids. but there aren’t posts like that on this site (thank G-D for that).

        and I don’t see how irrational hatred of one woman is any better than irrational hatred of the other. hatred of (or the extreme level of devotion to) either one is just too much of an emotional investment for someone I don’t know, will never know, and who doesn’t give two bits about me or my opinion.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @dpatz-Exactly, and you’re allowed to change your mind! There are good and bad aspects to marriage/kids vs marriage/no kids vs singledom.

        @Doofus-Yeah I’ve heard some of the regulars on the J-P posts saying that awful people wish awful things upon them and their children. Those people are obviously unhinged and I’m glad we don’t have to read that crap around here.
        And so much word to your last paragraph. I have a short list of celebs that I hate with a passion and a very short list of celebs that I irrationally dislike but the ones that I truly detest have all committed an act that I consider unforgivable—beating a woman, rape, child abuse, racism/misogyny.
        Women who make bad rom coms don’t fall into that category for me.

        This 100%. I saw a comment once in the past about B&A that read, and I’m not kidding, “God bless the Jolie-Pitts”. I’m sorry, I think this is so creepy and stalkerish. I know they do a lot for charity but that sentiment just seems a bit much. I mean, its nice what they do, and I certainly respect their charity work, but this just seems way too intimate a thing to say about people you don’t know and who don’t know you exist. Unless they’ve personally reached out to you and touched your life PERSONALLY, I don’t get it. And I’m sure there are loons making the same kind of comments about JA. I’ve used this word before but its WEIRD. You can admire someone you don’t know from afar and even feel affection for them, but holy crap, relax.

        On the flip side, to feel compelled to come to the comments of the person of your hatred just to rip every single solitary thing he/she does to shreds is just as weird. I don’t hate ANYONE that much. There are plenty of celebs I don’t like but it gets boring ripping them to shreds every day. I don’t even hate Chris Brown and Kim Kardashian that much.

        I also have to say I’m loving these comments on how she’s dressing too young. Amy Poehler the other day wore a dress exactly like this, except longer, with beachy hair and no jacket. She’s 42. Did everyone think she was dressing too young? I didn’t. Most people reviewing the red carpet that I saw LOVED her look.

        I’m 42, maybe everyone can tell me what I’m allowed to wear.

  40. Cinderella says:

    She would have looked fine if she didn’t have a saggy boob/dress length situation going on.

    I’m wondering how things are going with her and Justin. She definitely looks off, and I don’t think it’s because of the stealth wedding.

  41. Twinkle says:

    She looks bloated and gassy. Maybe that’s why she looks uncomfortable. On the other hand, looks like all of her visits to the medical spa has been paying off. Those techs have really zapped and sandblasted all of her wrinkled, sun damaged, smokers skin away. It’s good to be rich. Aveeno, my tuckus!

  42. RobN says:

    I think she’d look great if she’d stand up straight. It’s the slouching that makes the dress look ill fitting. My mom would be screaming “shoulders back” at her. Posture counts.

  43. Ag says:

    she’s what, 40-something now? people need to give up the “bump watch.”

  44. Paloma says:

    I just viewed the video; what is wrong with her? Was something stuck up her glutes?

  45. ann says:

    I know that the triangle has no business here anymore, but I’m thinking Jen heard about the marriage and put on a sad face on purpose to get zillions of miles in the press how brokenhearted she is and Brad’s a cad, etc. This is my opinion only.
    Still glad she’s still leaving those Living Proof extensions at home. They must be having separation anxiety by now.
    Don’t miss her touching her hair all the time.
    I’m glad the crowd went crazy when Lisa came on the set. She’s a wonderful actress.

    • Meg says:

      OMG! I totally agree with you and her touching her hair all the time! It is beyond annoying!. She did it on friends and bothered me then as well.

      I cannot believe she actually agreed to wear this outfit…
      Like others have said YOUR 45 Even at 25 I would never put this outfit if you want to call it that on.

      Not to mention she looks miserable ALL THE TIME!!!

      Words cannot even express how awful this look was she should have known better

  46. Ginger says:

    I have one word for her: BRA!

    I’m sorry but she and I are the same age and gravity is generally not your friend after 40. The dress is very unflattering. She should fire the stylist!

  47. MsMercury says:

    I don’t know why it is okay to body shame her. I mean I think her body is probably fine but she just needs to dress better. Most of her outfits are unflattering for her body but she isn’t fat like most of you are suggesting,

  48. Green_Eyes says:

    I’ll give her this… It can’t be easy going out in public for a premier w/ the world watching knowing your ex-husband and his lady love (the #1 power couple) got married. (Think Brad warned her to be polite & not blindsided by media). After all these years.. Guess her fans now have to realize Brad is not coming back.

  49. Sal says:

    Unflattering. It would be better if it was full length ie past her chest.

  50. Dany says:

    that outfit is so “hanging”. Her hair, dress, boobs… all hanging, it just doesn´t work together.

    This outfit would look great if 1) longer dress 2) less boob 3) ponyail

  51. Midnight says:

    This look is all kinda wrong. She’s 45 years old and it’s time she started dressing age appropriate. Still wanting to know who designed her engagement ring?

  52. Janet says:

    Oy-vay. That dress is a disaster. She’s 45, not 15. I can’t understand why she refuses to dress her age. 45 is a fabulous age. Take it from one who’s been there.

    As to her being pregnant — why in the world would Huvane let the tabloids put out a cover story on poor-Jen-says-I’ll-never-be-a-mom and the very next day release a photo of her looking five months along? Is this supposed to be her way of saying “Ha-ha, I fooled you”?

    Actually, I think the news of the Jolie-Pitt wedding came at the worst possible time for her. There have been rumors circulating about her fiancé making eyes at his co-star (history repeating itself?) and her upcoming movie seems headed straight for flopdom. That photo may be a desperate attempt to divert some of the attention away from the wedding and put herself back in the spotlight with yet another fabricated baby bump. It’s getting really, really old.

  53. Lydia Says says:

    It reeks of desperation to me. But then so do most of her appearances.I can’t imagine a woman willingly choosing a dress that makes her look like that. I’m surprised she just didn’t go ahead and put her hand approximately around her “belly,” really give it the full effect. She’s obsessed with her body, even if she had too much to drink and have a margarita tummy,spanks could have smoothed it right down. It is intentional and it is cheap PR ploy. At what point would she stop using that “is she pregnant” tactic? She’s pushing 50 for God’s sake.

  54. maggie says:

    Well I’m older than her and I wear whatever the hell I want!! I don’t dress age “inappropriate” either. I think she’s gorgeous and looks fabulous in the above dress plus I love the dress she wore on J Kimmel. She always comes off as very classy to me. I don’t get the hate. People will never forgive her for being Pitt’s first wife.

  55. Janet says:

    This picture was taken last night on the Jimmy Kimmel show and she most emphatically does not look pregnant.

  56. GIRLFACE says:

    She needs to stop with the tanning. She can start looking Jersey Shore pretty fast and besides, tanning is out of style.

  57. Camille (The Original) says:

    Unflattering and too short. #sadboobs

  58. Janet says:

    Gossipcop just shot this one down for the 647th time. She is not, repeat, not pregnant.

  59. sherlockapple says:

    I am really surprised that she walked out looking like this. JA is usually very aware of the shape of her clothing and how it silhouettes her body. The jacket is cut so that her top portion looks much smaller than the bottom, like a pear. And the portion of the dress that IS showing up top allows her cleavage to look saggy. Ouch, ouch, ouch!!!

  60. KatyD says:

    She keeps talking about babies. Yet another interview about how it’s not fair to ask her any baby questions. Meanwhile, she’s the one constantly bringing it up. All her responses are so scripted. The tabloids are already comin out with more Aniston baby covers. She even posed as pregnant for a Smartwater ad. She knows that the baby bump stuff sells and I think she plays it up for the attention.

  61. birch says:

    It’s a foundation issue–she’s not wearing enough. She needs a bra and I can’t recall ever seeing her without one on red carpet before. Also, this is a dress for a younger woman. She has a very good figure but she’s middle aged. She has endless options for looking fabulous without trying to pretend the clock ain’t moving for her. Her point about marriage and children not defining a woman seems a bit hollow when she appears to think a sexy appearance has to define her personally.
