Jennifer Aniston & Paul Rudd cover GQ, Aniston drops trou & talks about babies

Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd take the cover of the March issue of GQ to promote Wanderlust. They play a married couple in the film – it feels like they’ve worked together a million times before, but I guess it’s just been twice now? Anyway, this is Aniston’s new thing, doing magazine photo shoots with her male costars. She did it for Horrible Bosses too. She’s also doing the same thing she always does, which is take off her clothes. I mean… yeah, she’s got a nice figure, and look! She’s not preggo. But enough. She drops trou every time she promotes a movie. You can see the slideshow here, and you can read the full interview with Aniston & Rudd here. Here are some highlights:

Jennifer Aniston & Paul Rudd on whether—being they’re such longtime friends—it’s weird to kiss on-screen…
Jennifer: “Nah. I’ve kissed him for years.”
Paul: “We’ve made out for decades.”

Their new film, Wanderlust, is about a marriage at a turning point. Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd on whether any of the issues in the film resonated with them…
Paul: “I think most marriages, mine included, you’re constantly tending the garden, constantly working at it.”
Jennifer: “It’s a growing, literally living thing. There’s going to be growing pains, there’s going to be awkward moments—your lanky phase, your pimpled phase. I think that’s the beauty of a relationship. But if the road starts to…”
Paul: “…diverge…”
Jennifer: “…and one person is growing this way and the other is growing that way… Sometimes that can happen and you can stay together, and sometimes you can’t.”

Jennifer Aniston on recently turning 40….
“Forty’s great!” [GQ: Is it?] “Oh, my God, my thirties blew! Forties are great.”

Aniston on her NYC apartment: I bought an apartment, but I didn’t buy the right apartment. There were photographers outside every day. To the point of embarrassment.

Aniston on babies: “I’m not having triplets. Not having twins. Nor am I having one baby. [lifts up sweater and gestures to belly; it appears flat] I did not elope. Well, I recently quit smoking, and you do put on some extra pounds. It makes a difference, especially if you’re not 20. I think people maybe want me to have a kid now. I still kind of go with, if it happens, it happens. I’m calm and peaceful with whatever the plan is. It’s not something where I’m going, “I gotta have a kid!” [Does it bother me that “kids” are] Part of the picture-perfect life? I think that’s sort of cliché, isn’t it? Like, if you want to be happy, you should have the house, the husband, the kids… Kids are messy! The one time I do say, “Yes! I’m pregnant!” they’ll be like, “Pfft. Right.” Anyway, I’m drawing the line on the children conversation. You heard it here. I’m not knocked up now.”

[From GQ]

Yeah, I didn’t have the time or the inclination to really pour through that interview. Paul is nice enough, and he and Jennifer have a nice chemistry, but their conversation was just kind of boring. Should we talk about the baby stuff, I guess? I understand what she’s saying now – she doesn’t feel like babies are a necessity for her life, and she’s offended that “babies” are a constant in her narrative… but hasn’t she done that to herself? She’s the one who went to Vanity Fair and talked about how much she wanted children and how she will be a mother. She’s the one talking about it in interview after interview. So no, I don’t feel bad that “babies” are part of her tabloid narrative.

    I wonder if she’ll still be getting naked when she’s 65 and making another horrid rom-com? PUT IT AWAY, LADY.

    • bea says:

      I know. I’m over it.

      • autumndaze says:

        I hate the cliche power imbalance implied when the man in a photo spread is wearing a suit and the woman is in some state of undress….. as if that is all she has to offer.

      • HoustonGrl says:

        @autumndaze, i totally agree, it’s repulsive.

        Nothing about these pictures is sexy. They look like staged half-drunk facebook photos you’d expect to see on a 19-year-old’s profile. But with two middle aged has-beens that miraculously still get work in Hollywood despite below average acting skills, it’s just gross.

      • Becky says:

        The pics are dumb but I would hardly call either of them has-beens…particularly Paul Rudd. I love him-he was great in “My Idiot Brother.” I really think he’s an underrated actor.

      • Ally says:

        I like Paul Rudd, but I can’t imagine watching these two playing romantic couple arguments. We’re all so familiar with their relationship-scene tics, it would be like an SNL sketch.

        Other than Good Girl and Friends With Money, Aniston always falls back on the same schtick she deployed with Ross and Rachel — hair flipping, sighs, pleading, pouting, and repeat.

    • Michelle says:

      Your early 40’s and mid 60’s are not really the same thing… And why should she put it away? Plenty of people still want to see it!

    • nina says:

      bwahaha, put it away. She’s got a great shape, but it is getting old, I mean this is her one thing she does for promotions every couple months and has been stripping down for like 2 decades now. We’ve seen your cooch a thousand times before honey, try something new.

    • Liz says:

      No. She will leave it to Angelina.

      • blc says:

        God god those pictures make her look so desperate. Yes, she has a great body, that is for sure. No doubt about it; she has a hot figure. But she is old now and all she does is take off her clothes. We have already seen it! It is getting pretty sad at this point.

    • pwal says:

      In all honesty, I can’t believe that people are objecting to this shoot. Actually, I do get that it’s getting tired (for some), but for heaven sakes, she got naked (except for a tie) for GQ when she was promoting Marley and Me, a family film. That should’ve been objectionable, but no, it was okay because Marley and Me was in competition at the box office with Benjamin Button, so all’s fair?

      Anyway, I don’t care how cool you are with someone- you shouldn’t have someone’s toes in your mouth. Or better yet, you shouldn’t force your toes in someone else’s mouth.

  2. Tiffany27 says:

    I’m sorry but I don’t think she wants kids. At all.

    • Happymom says:

      I’m with you. I don’t think she ever did-hence a big reason why her marriage broke up.

    • Miffits says:

      Me neither and I don’t feel there’s anything wrong with saying so. Do you think she’s worried about losing her victim title if she admits it though?

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        The press was saying her marriage ended because BP wanted kids and JA didn’t, like it was all her fault. I think she was defending herself, and it backfired a bit.

        I don’t think she ever said “no way ever”, when it came to kids. I think she didn’t want to bring a kid into a marriage that was having problems. I don’t blame her.

        BP obviously wanted kids much more immediately, which is quite evident now, but hindsight is 20/20.

        In BPs 2005 GQ interview he said he still wanted a marriage and family (post divorce). The journalist asked if he was afraid it wouldn’t happen BP said “I’m not worried that it’s not gonna happen. I’ll make it happen. You go make the things that you want.”

        Jen’s philosophy seems to be, if it happens it happens. They are very different when it comes to something pretty important.

  3. heyheyhey says:

    its GQ mag, what did anyone expect???/ if a female is going to appear in a lad magazine u better know she would be at least semi nude

    the target market for this magazine is male hence , half clothed female

  4. OriginalTiffany says:

    Photoshop FAIL!!!! Look at the last pic. Look at her waist near her left (her left, our right) hip. Now follow that line above her arm.
    Unless her side makes a 90 degree turn, they trimmed off some.
    Same for Adele, they made her look really small in Vogue while she is much bigger IRL.
    Stop with the heavy handed photoshop, please!
    Every single image we see is false. Its like some weird perfect uber-reality.
    And No, she doesn’t want babies, see her babies are messy line. Which is fine, just own it.

    • Alti says:

      agreed! I think, both arms are “wrong”. Her right upper arm is too long, her left one could be normal, but both underarms look false. A typically photoshop mistake.

    • flourpot says:

      wow they need to fire their photoshop guy. That’s just pathetic for GQ. Perhaps a bit of nepotism going on in the ranks over there? I wouldn’t doubt it.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        The more I look at it the more noticeable it is in every shot. Arms and legs have very straight lines. Weird shadow/non-shadow. Bad job.
        This, Adele and the SI issue, all SO HEAVY HANDED!
        No one wants to see totally fake skin, fake everything.

        We can’t even trust our own eyes anymore. Nothing we see can be believed to be what is advertised in magazines, TV and web. Its kind of sad. How are we supposed to grow young women up who feel good about themselves if we constantly push on them a false idea of expected perfection?
        To think it isn’t OK to have a stretch mark or dimple EVER, because no one they see in media is like that.
        That is why I thought SJ’s pics were nice. It was real.

    • kibbles says:

      I also wanted to point out that these photos are drastically photoshopped. She has a nice body but it isn’t even close to looking like that in real life. Compare the photoshoot to this photo from a few weeks ago:

      At least several inches on her waist, arms, and legs have been shaved off in these photos.

  5. normades says:

    Why is she topless for all these pictures??? What does that add?

    Paul is a cutie though. I love me some Rudd!

    • Original Chloe says:

      Naked again. Doing the funny/sexy thing again, like in the Horrible Bosses photo shoot, except the result is worse. I like Paul Rudd. The pink theme is weird. Not much more to say.

  6. Maya says:

    This photoshoot is just…strange. I don’t know what’s going on here.

  7. Michelle says:

    Whatever, I know I’m not in the majority opinion, but I think she’s really attractive, she looks amazing for her age, and I don’t mind seeing her topless in a magazine where almost all of the women are topless… That’s kind of GQ’s “thing”, if I recall correctly. I also think that she and Paul Rudd kind of remind me of one another; they refuse to significantly age. I think if they were ever to procreate (which I know won’t ever happen), their children would live forever, on carb-free yoga-intensive diets.

    • T.C. says:

      Of course she looks good. It just looks odd to have her almost topless while her male co-star is almost covered from head to foot. It would have looked better for her to do the shoot by herself. Just makes the whole thing look super sexist.

      • Michelle says:

        It is sexist. That’s why women are judged almost solely on their appearance, and frankly I don’t love that J.A. (and pretty much everyone else) buys into that, but I still think she looks kickin’. I would have preferred this shoot without Paul Rudd, honestly. Even though I really like both of them separately. It just makes the clothing/standards disparity more apparent having them pose together.

  8. NM6804 says:

    Short: So when they broke up both sides were hellbent on denying it was because of her not wanting children (she does!) and seven years later it’s a cliché? Or was it a cliché all along and did Pitt lie to help her save her image? Whatever happened, she isn’t keen on having them now since you can actually plan them Aniston. If you “go with the flow” but taking birth control, the plan is to NOT have children.

    EDIT: For somebody who admires Steinem, she sure is letting her body do the talking all the time. I guess the Aniston fans can bury their hopes for a baby in 2012.

  9. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    This bitch is so transparent. I can’t even deal with it.

    And yes, Jennifer like Katy talked that baby shit and now it blew up in their face.


    We put a lot of pressure on women to have kids when they hit a certain age. Like it’s rite of passage. Yes, it is the natural course in life to settle down and nest. That’s what our body’s were made for.

    BUT…just because your body is made to do something doesn’t mean YOU HAVE to do it. Men and women were made for each other, but that doesn’t always happen. And who the hell is anyone to tell or make a woman feel that she should have kids to fulfill her destiny? Motherhood is not for everyone and if you know you are too self-absorbed, selfish, and uninterested to have a child you are doing the right thing by being everyone’s favorite Aunt during the holidays.

    My issue with Aniston isn’t that she doesn’t want kids. It’s that she should have been up front about that from the start as it could have changed a lot of shit in the future.

    This was the thing that bothered me with Christina and Owen on Grey’s Anatomy. Sh got pregnant and we all knew Christina did not want children. She was going to have an abortion the first time had she not had an atopic pregnancy. But I felt bad for her and Owen because they got married and they never discussed that issue and it broke my heart to see a helpless Owen who had no choice but to be respectful of her decision just kind of fall in line. And I felt bad for Christina that she felt guilty for something she has always been clear about.

    I urge all soon-to-be married couples to talk about this issue before hand because this is an issue that happens a lot and can cause problems in the future.

    Be honest and upfront about what you want and don’t want. It’s not fair to hold someone back from a life they want no matter which side of the equation you’re on.

    • LoneRanger says:

      ITA!!! Standing up and applauding you because you said everything I feel about her. Good to see some are beginning to see through her phony persona and see her for who and what she truly is.

    • patw says:

      My two cents – I think she’s trying to say that having kids doesn’t mean your life is automatically picture perfect. It’s messy. I get her point.

      And frankly, I think her lifestyle for the last 6 years has maybe changed her mind. It’s been pretty sweet. Either way – Sandy Bullock didn’t want kids for a long time and ended up adopting Louie when she was 47. It sounds like Aniston is open to it still, but not making her life all about it.

      • Kate says:

        WHOA WHOA WHOA TheOriginalVictoria– There are PLENTY of reasons that women don’t have children aside from being “too self-absorbed, selfish, and uninterested to have a child” You are not making a point for women who don’t feel the desire for children here. Those are down-right condescending comments.

      • Becky says:

        ITA, Kate! Well stated.

    • spinner says:

      @ the OriginalVictoria – People change over the years & the mind can be changed many times before it reaches a comfortable place. People change their minds & attitudes about things. Just look at Angelina. I do realise that you are holding a double standard here & it is quite transparent.

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:

        First of all, I am speaking as a woman who never wanted any children but met my soul mate and BEFORE getting married discussed this with my husband who DID want children. We decided that this was not a deal breaker for us. He said he would rather be with me than not at all. And a few years into our marriage, something in me changed. I decided that I did want to have children with him. I wanted a comple. For me, I realized I could not spend my life with a wonderful man and not share the joys, tears, and laughter of having children with a wonderful man. And it was the best decision for me as I lost him not too long after we had our second child. For me I was moved emotionally and spiritually to a change of heart.

        Now, to address you comments in full @ KATE. I do make a perfect argument for many reasons why women don’t want children. Being a mother involved a lot of sacrifice. The sacrifice of time for yourself, sometimes looks, personal life, finances and beyond. I did not want children not because I didn’t have a maternal instinct as people will try to say that is the number one reason why women who don’t want kids cite. I say that’s bullshit. I loved kids, just not for myself. For me, not having kids meant the freedom to travel, live my life from day to day without worrying about crumbsnatchers crawling and sucking the life and joy out of my existence, wallet and possibly be held accountable for raising criminals geniuses who use their talents for evil or jerks. I didn’t like getting up before nine, and if I choose to go all day without cooking I could do that. Kids are are a continuous responsibility and quite frankly coming from a broken home, I didn’t want to deal with those possibilities either.

        All of those reasons were all about me, me, me, me and what I didn’t want to commit to. And honestly most women who don’t want children (especially ones I have met) feel one or a combination of all of those things). It is about being self-absorbed and selfish, but you’re looking at that as a negative thing. It’s not. If you don’t have any other responsibilities outside of yourself you are doing and living exactly how you should live. Which is for you and only you.


        Please stop trying to put words in my mouth. There is nothing wrong with changing your mind and I have said this plenty of times. That is not what we are talking about. We are talking about misleading people into thinking you want something you didn’t and STILL don’t. If Jennifer wanted children in the beginning when she was at least married, she would have done it already. It’s not that she has changed her mind, it’s that she lies or plays with the public about the situation. Even saying, “I think I wanted children because that was a natural course in my marriage I expected to take, but I honestly didn’t feel having children with Brad would be right because we had a lot of issues and I didn’t want to bring a child into a possible broken home,” would have been sufficient. I can understand that.

        So you can have several seats with trying to “spin” my words and views because TO ME that was not the case.

        Jennifer loves Jennifer. She is all about Jennifer and I also believe she has parental issues and that may play a factor in her lack of interest in kids. That’s fine. Just own it.
        To me it was:

        Jen: Kids Brad? Oh yeah, sure. Of course. But not right away though. Let’s just get through the first two years!

        Two years later: Babe, it’s just such a busy time right now what with all of these new found opportunities that your fame, I mean that with the ending of Friends have come my way and we’d be crazy to start a family now when we are both so busy building our careers. Let’s talk about it next year.

        And this, among other things I’m sure, became an issue.

      • Becky says:

        @The Original Victoria-aren’t all of our decisions selfish to some degree? Very few acts in life are truly selfless. People have kids because they want to-children can bring lots of joy and enrichment to one’s life. I don’t know anyone who had children for altruistic, selfless purposes. Yes, children involve a lot of sacrifices but they’re sacrifices people choose to make because they love their children and it’s part of being a good parent. People have kids for selfish reasons (for example: they think having kids and parenting would be something they’d enjoy, they want the societal approval that comes with being a parent, etc.) and don’t have kids for selfish reasons (they want more freedom, less responsibility, the timing wasn’t right, etc.). Unless you are having a child for someone else (i.e. carrying a child for someone one who can’t) or having a child because the world is underpopulated (doubt that will ever happen but you never know!) than to some degree you are doing it for selfish reasons. Which I think is fine-to each his or her own(:

    • NicoleAM says:

      Best to keep in mind that the decision to not have kids is not ALL about you. It’s also about the child. If your heart isn’t in it, how good a mother are you going to be? Plenty of women jump into having kids because “it’s the thing to do” and they end up not being great mothers. The selfish thing is not to not have kids but to have them without being certain you’re ready (which far too many people do).

  10. Asli says:

    Does she have a 80% skin- policy for her photoshoots? We get it! You’re hot. No put a damn shirt on!

    Her and Paul were in Friends together. Paul played Lisa Kudrow’s (Phoebe’s) husband, Mike. That’s probably why it seems like they’ve been working together for ages.

  11. Bite me says:

    Nice body

  12. Alaina says:

    Lame photoshoot. I feel like I’ve seen it a hundred times before, just the man changes. Ditto, the film.

  13. luce says:

    kim kartrashian

  14. gfsj says:

    She is the definition of a butter face! Her face is just so plain and weird, not beautiful with that chin and nose.

    She is the same age as Cate Blanchett but never would she sink so low to sell a film. Cate has class and self respect to know you don’t have to get 1/2 naked everytime a film is coming out.

    Getting 1/2 naked is all Aniston knows to do, she knows her face & “talent” are not good enough.

    And at 43, kids are not happening. At that age you can’t wait till later.

    • Missy says:

      “She is the definition of a butter face! Her face is just so plain and weird, not beautiful with that chin and nose.”

      Oh bless you. I seriously was starting to think I was crazy (or jealous). I don’t think she’s very attractive either.

    • Dredz says:

      Cate is classy

  15. Erin says:

    She needs to stop beating around the bush and just say she doesn’t want any kids. No one is forcing her to reproduce because she’s female and it’s nothing wrong with her not wanting kids but she just needs to admit she just doesn’t want them. She will never admit it because her victim act will fall through. She’s 43 and I’m not saying it isn’t possible for her to get pregnant but most woman that don’t have a single child by 43 they have health problems or just doesn’t want them. She is always making up an excuse. She said 7 years ago she was going to have kids now 7 years later no kids Jen. A fan of Jen but I’m really stating to believe brad was telling the truth and i wouldn’t blame him for getting the six children he has now with Angelina.

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      Brad never even said she didn’t want kids, that was the press. Otherwise I totally agree about JA and the kid thing. Seven years later, Brad-6 kids, Jen-0 kids. No hate either, just stop lying about it Jen, no one owns your womb.

  16. Kimlee says:

    I love how she change her story because up until now all of her interviews for years have been

     ( “I gotta have a kid!” Part of the picture-perfect life? I should have the house, the husband, the kids )

    She should have said that years ago instead of playing up that good girl image who got to have that so called pictuer perfect life. She really is trying to chance her image good for her but I only see the old Jen just a new game.

    Now if only she would do a photo shot with out being in her underwear she should try keeping her clothes on.

  17. Pants says:

    Who cares about Jen? I heart Paul Rudd!! *swoon*

  18. Eve says:

    This photoshoot feels like we’ve seen it a million times before. But Aniston looks good on the cover (hair colour, eyes…she looks pretty and feminine here).

    Paul Rudd’s kissy lips, on the other hand, reminded me of this:

  19. Zelda says:

    Duck Lips and a bra… feels pretty typical.

  20. Maritza says:

    She should make a list of the things she doesn’t want to talk about so the reporters stop asking the same questions over and over. I like Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston together in movies they do have great chemistry.

  21. Franny says:

    I think her quotes about having children came right after the divorce, where everyone said that the reason they broke up was because he wanted children and she didn’t. I think it was her way of saying that its not the reason, but now its coming back to bite her in the ass.

    I mean, my quotes from 8 years ago I was saying I would never want children, but now I would like to…although I was 16 8 years ago haha. Either way, people’s desires change over the years so maybe in her mid thirties she thought she would love to have some children, but now feels fulfilled without them. To each their own.

  22. Nev says:

    they were great in Object Of My Affection…one of my faves…I am excited to see this movie.

  23. rosa says:

    impersonators in the 3d pic?

  24. storyteller says:

    Aniston once again her underwear? There’s a surprise!

  25. anonymous says:

    It’s sad when an actress have to show her body parts all the time have nothing else. Hair body parts. I can guarantee that movie have Aniston half naken threw out. This hag is going to be 70 and still trying to bank on her old carcass. As for her facial features her paps street photo’s looks totally different seems that in real life she looks like Robin Williams dressed up as Mrs DoubtFire. I can see why Brad Pitt left she was just too darn ugly to look at in the morning, really! People her eyes aren’t blue they are brown and she has severely curly dark brown hair and big nose like any other Greek genetic trait. Although she has great comedic and acting skills to date she have never used them letting it go to waste becasue she tries so hard to be this fake person.

  26. dee says:

    What a beauty maybe not your classic, but still beautiful. She looks like a fun loving person enjoying life. She doesn’t need kids to complete her. Good for her, not every woman should bear children. I applaud her for doing like her way…………

  27. mln76 says:

    I didn’t hate the interview, and honestly i can’t blame her for always taking off her clothes it’s so much better than her face and we all know she works hard to look that way.

  28. Dredz says:

    B list actress makes B list movies, specializes in romcom forever, acting the same in every movies, can only get publicity by stripping and talking about how great her life is after divorce. Enough said.

  29. Hypocricy says:

    Aniston has been talking about wanting eagerly babies since 2000; It’s only since she turns 40 that she has adapted her comments to what I always suspected, saying something along the line that babies aren’t and were never her priority.

    She will keep on saying that if it happens it will happen until she got to her menoposal phase while taking the pile or doing nothing to facilitate it because it’s just not in her. She is not mother material and there is nothing wrong with it..

    She never wanted babies, she just fabricated that image for the sake of glamourizing, perfecting and enhancing the golden couple fantasy with golden babies every one infatuated, media included was waiting for.

  30. justez says:

    I feel like I’m in the minority on this site because I actually like Jennifer (she isn’t my top actress or anything and I don’t blindly adore her) but I think she seems fun. I also really like her and Paul’s chemistry (part of me wanted them together on Friends) and I’ll see anything with him in it because he’s adorable.

    • Delta Juliet says:

      I’m the same, I don’t adore her, but I don’t hate her either. I wish I had her body, but I don’t have the will power or motivation to do the work lol

      I have a huge crush on Paul 🙂

  31. LoneRanger says:

    Does this skank ho ever stop stripping for magazines?

  32. WaywardGirl says:

    It never seemed like she and Brad were on the same page. While Brad seemed to be sincere with his desire for kids, Aniston just seemed to use it as away to maintain the “perfect” image of their relationship.

  33. Happy21 says:

    They look like they are having fun and hey, if you’ve got it flaunt it!

    She’s not wearing anything less than the bikinis she wears on vacation. I see no issue with it. And its probably not up to her what she wears during these photo shoots. Besides, GQ is classy and does cater to men!

    • Cassie says:

      Sorry, but nothing about GQ is ‘classy’. And its not the first time JA stripped for GQ. Last time was for Marley and Me and she was very sl*tty. Neither her nor the magazine have class.

  34. G says:

    How many times is going to trot out the same photo shoot, the same hair-do, the same interview patter for the same lack-luster romcom that will get the same tepid box office?

  35. Jenna says:

    The only thing I got from this story and pics was: “EWW!!! Her feet are in his mouth in that second to last pic! Gross”. That’s all.

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      Don’t knock it, Jenna. My man sends me to get pedicures all the time because he loves my feet. I also get nice shoes. And foot rubs. Works out nice for me.

    uhhh did Paul Rudd borrow Jennifers lipstick for the covershot? Damn the editors made them the same hot pink color. It looks ridiculous

  37. Ginger says:

    Why is she nearly naked and Paul Rudd isn’t?? I cry foul!! And JA is not 40 she is 43…agreed about the photoshop… Do over!

  38. Rhonda says:

    If I had her body, you`d have to pay me to keep my clothes on…

  39. patw says:

    Umm she just did InStyle fully clothed. It’s GQ! And relates to a promotion for a movie that involves naked hippies! Michelle Williams, Oscar nominee, just did it in her bra and panties. So why cast stones.

    Anyway, I really like the colouring here – I feel like most US magazines don’t know how to light her because her skin is not white/pasty! The foreign magazines get it right though. Weird. Here it looks great! Her eyes really pop. I think she looks fantastic.

    • Kim says:

      So then why is he completely covered in a sweater? Pllleeaassee this girl uses any excuse to show off her body. Well it is her only “talent” after all.

    • patw says:

      Kim – do you know the GQ MO when it comes to female cover models? You should check the archives.

  41. nan says:

    The Daily Mail has a photo of her with a cigarette in her mouth on the balcony of her birthday party bash. Bimbo would rather smoke than gain a few pounds!

  42. Sammi says:

    “and one person is growing this way and the other is growing that way… Sometimes that can happen and you can stay together, and sometimes you can’t.” and people wonder why hollywood marriages fail. Marriage is work. I’m going on 3 years and its not always rosy. In fact, sometimes it sucks. but its worth it if you are committed to staying committed and working through problems because the best days are amazing. Growing apart is a BS excuse for people who have no concept of commitment and the long haul.

  43. jesstar says:

    She looks fantastic!
    GQ is a mens mag, how do you think they are gonna want to style her? Anyone who passes forty looking so vibrant is entitled to celebrate it. Haters gonna hate, so why let them control you?

    • Noi says:

      what’s to hate and seeing how you read some of the comments it’s bot the mag style it’s the fact she keeps going barely clothed shoots to promote

  44. ann says:

    GQ: Your new movie, Wanderlust, is about a marriage at a turning point. Paul, you’ve been married for a long time. And Jen, I gather you’ve been married, too?
    Jennifer Aniston: That is correct. And I’m now divorced. In case you hadn’t heard.
    Yes Jen, we’ve heard, like a thousand times. Coattail, (cough).
    Her fake lips look like the wacko wax lips we used to wear as a joke, and she’s got paper thin lips. As usual, she’s draped all over her co star, and shocker, stripped down.

  45. Kim says:

    Why is she is a bra? And could she be more photoshopped? I used to like her but Im so over her! She cant act and its the same old story with her & showing off her body, hair, etc because she cant act. Lets be real she wouldnt even have an acting career anymore if she hadnt married Brad Pitt. He brought her mega fame otherwise she would just be some girl from a tv show who did a few romantic comedies and faded away because she has no true acting talent.

  46. Paige says:

    @ Kim a truly agree with with everything you said. No one would give a damn about jennifer aniston if she hadn’t married brad pitt. It’s the truth even if her fans will deny it. She would have been just another celeb during another romantic comedy the rest of her life. She doesn’t want children. She will be still saying this 7 years from now. this is just my opinion and i don’t know her personally but she doesn’t seem maternal at all and seems too self centered and cares more about getting into a bikini than getting pregnant. It is nothing wrong with her saying no I don’t want children. Look at cameron diaz and rachel ray. But they date people and marry people that don’t want children also. As someone said above her words are coming back to bite her in the ass becuz brad pitt was right all along and it was definitely the main reason they divorced. Why should he waste years with someone that didn’t want the same as him. She was just selfish. Now Brad has what he wants.

    • patw says:

      Same can be said of Pitt’s other half – Miss Jolie about relevance? They ALL benefitted. YOu think the coverage would be this dramatic for all parties if it didn’t happen the way it did?

      You keep saying there’s nothing wrong with her not wanting children, but then you say she’s too selfish, self-centred to have any. Clearly you think there is something wrong with it…

      • Mari says:

        This post is not about Jolie. No one was mantioningnher, but the motives of this divorce.

      • patw says:

        Mari – that’s the context of half the posts here, and saying otherwise is just being facetious.

        My point being that I think saying she’s relevant because of Pitt is not a good enough reason for how well she does (and I don’t mean tabloid coverage, I mean her entertainment career). Her movies do well, and make decent box office. Being labelled/viewed as the “victim” in the split (which I never thought of her as) is NOT the sole reason for it.

      • Cassie says:

        Oh please! 97% of the net is pro JA and anti AJ, just like in the tabloids. If you think getting such an amount of hatred and abuse is ‘benefitting’ then I don’t know what to say. JA is the only one who truly benefited.

    • yep says:

      not wanting to have children doesnt make a person selfish.

      youre making assumptions about a lot of women you dont know. you should think before you write something like that.

      • Hypocricy says:

        No but going into a marriage knowing you don’t want children while you know your betterhalf can’t see himself without them is not only selfish but manipulative.

        I personally beleived she knew and deliberatly lied about it to a person who would have probably never married her in the first place if he knew it was and will always be her and him without children in the picture ever till death do them apart.

      • patw says:

        Oh please – Pitt himself didn’t know if he wanted kids going into the marriage. He said he wasn’t sure if he was ready for them. Stop making up stuff.

      • yep says:

        ya, because you know exactly what happened in their marriage. argh, really? look, i think the three of them are douches. honestly, im pretty sure their marriage fell apart for a variety of reasons but who knows what they are.

        anyway, i hate it when women attack eachother.

      • Cassie says:

        Agree with Hypocricy. patw, Brad said even way before he met JA, that he wanted children. He has never at any stage said he wasn’t sure. Stop making stuff up.

  47. Minxx says:

    What will she do in 10 years? Strip for magazines? Make romcoms when she’s 50? She’s not developing or growing as an actress, I guess she has nothing more to offer than her banging body. I watched a bit of a movie with her (and Gerald Butler) recently on TV and I was just stunned how unpleasant and unfeminine her face looks – she really has manly features. Don’t blame her for not wanting kids, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.. but why lie about it to your own husband? Even now she’e not brave enough to admit it. In the end, the truth about Aniston/Pitt break up will emerge and he will be validated. She’s just so vapid, I’m not surprised he left.

  48. Sara says:

    I think she looks really good in these photos. She is a pretty girl and sometimes her movies turn out good sometimes they don’t. Seems to be the case with most actresses in Hollywood these days, especially if your not diverse.

  49. Jane says:

    Shes so god damn hot! I mean seriously! I am so jealous 😀 Look at her! Who gives a damn what she does in the future. She knows her niche and she rocks it. Everybody needs to get off her case I love her attitude to kids. I am the same if it happens it happens. But I am not going to try to “complete my life” by reproducing. Helen Mirren has absolutely no regrets about not having children and I admire her for that more than any of those with a large family. Everybody needs to stop spectulating Jen is just going with the flow looking f-ing hot at the same time!

  50. rgh says:

    I don’t get why people here says she has an ugly face. Is it because of Angelina has an ugly body so Jennifer has to be ugly in the face? Her face is very pretty, she looks like that Julliene Hough who is also very pretty. Jennifer has a pretty face and sexy body, a total package

    • yep says:

      ha! thats so funny. i never think ive seen anyone say it but i agree. i always thought angelina has an odd body shape.

      no matter how skinny and fit someone gets, they still can have unattractive shapes. (btw i think im one of those people.) but angelina does have that face as consolation.

      jen has a great body but you have to admit the face is just average… cute-ish but average.

    • Kimlee says:

      Could it be that people just don’t think she pretty or the total package their are people who don’t think Gisele and other that do. So just because you think she is dosen’t mean that everyone has to.

    • Cassie says:

      Why drag Angelina into it? And AJ has a gorgeous body and gorgeous face. JA has neither. Sorry.

  51. Camille (The original) says:

    Paul Rudd is a cutie.

    There is a lot of photoshopping going on in these photos.

  52. Penguin says:

    “recently turned 40”- no love your 43, stop trying to fool people.

  53. B says:

    I wish Paul Rudd were the half-naked one instead…

  54. Elizabeth Rose says:

    She looks ridiculous TBH.

  55. Nev says:

    has anyone ever thought that MAYBE she did want to have kids and is now blase/vague about it because…

    1. she is divorced and NOT married right now.


    2. maybe she CANNOT have kids and chooses not to be open about it.

    so perhaps it’s not because she wanted to hang on to brad or because she never wanted them in the first place…he left her for another woman…that is fact….stop blaming her for that marriage ending….he fell in love on the set with angelina…she confirmed it..yes, everyone is happy now the kids are great but that is how it started.

    • Kimlee says:

      Sorry but she she can not confirm something she dosen’t know was she on set 24/7 with them no did she catch them no so how can she confirm he fell in love on the set.

      • Nev says:

        Angelina was the one who confirmed it.

      • Emma says:

        *sigh*…Angelina never confirmed anything, it was just Angelina haters (note I did not say “Aniston fans”) who twisted her words to fit their purposes. Angelina said something like a movie where their parents fell in love…and Mr. and Mrs. Smith did indeed fall in love in the movie.

        Also, something hugely important that tabloids try to sweep under the rug is that filming for Mr. and Mrs. Smith CONTINUED AFTER BRAD AND JEN’s SEPARATION. They took a break in filming because brad had to leave to film another movie and M&MS was running overtime.

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        Vogue interview re: MAMS Angelina said they, AJ/BP, developed a close bond of trust because of the gun play, that they became a team, a pair. Brad, on why MAMS was his favorite Angelina film, “Because you know… six kids. Because I fell in love.”

    • Shay Kay says:

      Hi Nev! I’m on board with with what you’re saying. Jen and Brad both say that “wanting children” had nothing to do with their divorce. Brad and Angie both say they MAMS was their favorite movie because they “fell in love” while filming it and now obviously are happy with their six children. Jen no doubt wouldn’t want the “poor Jen finally meets the right man and is too old for children” line thus she is vague. I would be too.Jen may very well be at a place now where she’d be surprised and delighted if she were to be pregnant and happy and at peace if she never has a child. I also don’t doubt that she is quite happy with her indepedent lifestyle and no longer wants children. I don’t think she “lied” to Brad about wanting children. I think they could have been actively trying to conceive and his reaction to Jolie would have been the same.
      Imo Jen is funny, sexy, and smart. She’s likeable, relatable, and warm in her appearance and manner. Smart move by a woman who knows that her public persona is part of her appeal. She has remained a staple in movies far longer than just being Brad’s ex-wife would warrant. No one is going to be continually cast in films if they don’t make money no matter who’s ex-wife they are. Jen has comedic talent and timing and is attractive and thus she is successful in rom coms. That’s not a big surprise surely?

    • Cassie says:

      Nev, sorry, but stop saying JA is blameless for her marriage breakup when she was 50% of the marriage. And please stop lying about Brad. Brad never left her for another woman at all. He and AJ didn’t get together til well after he and JA separated. JA is not a victim, she had as much input into her marriage as B. Stop stop trying to place all the blame on B and minimizing JA’s role. She was half to blame. She is not a victim so stop making out like she had no part in the marriage breakup. She chose a career over Brad. Thats fact.

  56. AnnieC says:

    I am SO over Aniston! She’s 40+ years old, does she think it’s appropriate to be tramping around half-naked for all the world to see?! Put it away Aniston & grow a brain!

    • Rosalee says:

      hell I’m ten years older than Aniston and if I had what she has I’d walk it down the street everyday and bring it back on the other side.

  57. Liry says:

    She has been recently turning forty for the last three years…let us say she is going on 45 and get over with it.

  58. toto says:

    “Well, I recently quit smoking, and you do put on some extra pounds”
    the daily mail caught her smoking

    yeah right

    • Rosalee says:

      I quit smoking a year ago, but when I’ve been stressed and a carrot isn’t enough I’m have to admit I cheat. Two years ago I quit for nearly a year, gained thirty pounds was so depressed I started smoking, addiction is a b*t*h. Matter of fact I’m fighting the urge for a heart shaped cookie as I type.

  59. Original Chloe says:

    Okay, I read the whole interview and just I don’t get it.

    Like, what’s with the references to “feuding” – is it supposed to be a new meme, like that “cuddling from behind” line? This “feud” made it into her previous interview already.

    I know that this one is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek and targetting the tabs but the majority of it boils down to rehashing the tabloid stuff (divorce and the state of JA’s uterus), except now they’re joking about it with Paul Rudd and it’s not even funny – it’s full of lines that are *supposed* to be funny (SJP carried one of my triplets that are feuding with one another) but ..they’re not.

    Or am I just grumpy? Is this interview actually funny to anyone? Like, did you guys actually smile or giggle reading it? (The cuteness of Rudd aside)

  60. Agnes says:

    as usual, lukewarm plain oatmeal. 🙂

  61. NotaBitterBetty says:

    Just because you have it doesn’t mean you should flaunt it at every turn. We get it already, she has a fabulous body. So what? Surely there’s more to her than I’m 43 and look how hot my body is.

  62. Tastykakes says:

    Double Duckface from people trained as to how they should look to a camera. I’m appalled.

  63. skuddles says:

    The sad part about promoting your identity based exclusively on ‘sex appeal’ is that one day it goes away… and then what? More lipo, more botox, more desperate attempts to cling to fading youth? Now is the time Aniston really needs to start expanding her repertoire, not taking off her clothes and trying to keep up with the 20 year olds.

  64. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    She has a great body but unless she’s naked for the movie I don’t get why she has to be naked in the photoshoot? I guess it’s her thing. Meh. To be fair I haven’t seen the interviews where SHE brought up the baby thing. I also think if she brought it up it was kind of a response to the rumors that Brad broke up with her cause she didn’t want kids.
