Jennifer Aniston: ‘we’re just trying to entertain you, don’t shoot the messenger’

I don’t like Jennifer Aniston’s on-again boyfriend, John Mayer, and generally find him to be a douche, but despite that, and the fact that it seems like half our loyal readers rip into me every time I mention it, the woman has really grown on me. She’s personable, funny and I enjoy hearing her talk some mild smack after she skirted around it all these years. (Yes, there will be people who say she talked about it immediately and who will cite endless interviews and examples ad nauseum. That’s what makes these threads so entertaining, you really do your homework.)

Aniston and Owen Wilson, her co-star in the much anticipated holiday release film Marley and Me have a new interview with US Weekly. Aniston briefly addresses the public’s fascination with her personal life, telling us it’s none of our “f’ing business” and that she thinks it’s ridiculous we focus on that when there are so many positive things happening in the world. There’s also what sounds like an uncomfortable moment when Wilson walks out when asked about tough times in his life. Wilson had a suicide attempt last year.

Q: How challenging is it promoting this big fun family movie when the public seems to be so curious about your own lives?

Aniston: I think it’s ridiculous. There’s just this insatiable need. I also haven’t had a movie in a long time, so hopefully this is going to create something else to talk about and realize that I have a job, and I’m an actress.

Wilson: This is the nice part. You get to talk about the work.

Aniston: I am honestly getting sick of it, and I feel like telling people, “You know what? It’s none of your (expletive) business.” Seriously, it’s enough. It’s like we’re appealing to the lowest …

Wilson:… the worst in human nature.

Aniston: And this is at a time when we should be so inspired and excited with what’s happening with the president. It’s a time to be positive and join together. We’re just trying to entertain you, man. Don’t shoot the messenger.

Q: Well, how does doing a film like this help?

Aniston: It’s such a positive story. … I think sometimes people lose track and they forget, “God, this (stuff) is hard.” And then you see a movie that reminds you … life isn’t what you always imagine it to be. Life is what it is.

Wilson: That was nice. That was a great line.

Q: And what about your dogs? Do they help you get through the difficult times?

(Wilson, who was hospitalized in 2007 after what police called a suicide attempt, walks out.)

Aniston: You’re talking about the stupid stuff? Yes.

(When Wilson returns, the question is repeated.)

Aniston: They do help.

Wilson: Yeah. That sounded nice.

We’ve heard the same thing from countless celebrities about how their lives aren’t important, but instead of saying how great things are now and how everyone should be positive they used to say “there’s a war on.” There’s always going to be a desire for personal details of celebrities’ lives.

People are going to say Aniston can’t have it both ways and discuss her personal life when she wants to mildly call out her ex’s partner, but then blame people for wanting to know about it. She needs to tell bland non-controversial stories that don’t give the press anything to go on if she doesn’t want them to focus on her life. She did that for a while and it didn’t get her much attention. Now that she has a movie, though, she’s digging up some of that dirt and working it to her advantage. It seems a tad hypocritical for her to complain about it now. I still like her though, and I have to say it sounds like she knows exactly what’s she’s doing with the press. We’re still talking about her, and she didn’t have to say much about it this time.

    On a totally shallow note, she looks fab in those Santa Monica pics. Just healthy and really happy.

  2. geronimo says:

    “…life isn’t what you always imagine it to be. Life is what it is.”

    Eh? What does this mean? 8O

  3. Kaiser says:

    Does anyone else think there’s more to the story about Owen walking out? I hope he’s not back on drugs.

    G, replace “life” with either “Dark Dick”, “chicken salad” or “yoga”.

    Celebitchy said it best…

  5. Mairead says:

    Oi you, Aniston. Let go of the Wilson. While they are really lovely photos of you, you’re sucking the hotness out. Cease and disist, or I’ll get out the crimping tongs :evil:

    @ geronimo – no idea. I’m still trying to figure out what the “message” is.

    All that aside. She does seem a likeable enough woman – but more to chat to than have a proper conversation with.

    And Kaiser, don’t say that. I hope not :(

  6. bitme says:

    @ geronimo: It is meant to be a very deep thought. Hell, it problably took her a week to think out anything so profound.

  7. Kaiser says:

    Mairead – Don’t say that about Owen and drugs? It gives me no pleasure, but it does seem to be the subtext of the mini-interview, doesn’t it? Sad. :cry:

  8. geronimo says:

    Re Owen, yeah, I do hope not, but he does come across as a bit fragile….

    It’s not just her ‘life’ comment that’s off, it’s the ‘shoot the messenger’ one also. The context/uasge is wrong here. You only shoot the messenger when they deliver news you don’t like. It would only apply here if she was using it in the context of the film – ie. if the film’s message or subject matter was controversial or something. Jeez. Read a (non-self-help) book.

    But maybe it’s all just too deep and profound for my empty little head… :wink:

  9. Codzilla says:

    Owen looks like The Wicked Witch of the West in that header photo.

  10. Terry says:

    GL, she’s fourty and keep using the ‘F’ word in her interviews about this Family ‘PG’ Dog movie?

  11. Frenchie says:

    sounds like Owen was bored of doing the interview, and got a good excuse for leaving. Aniston is trying to cover whatever for him

  12. Cheyenne says:

    That sounded like a rather lukewarm pitch for their new movie, especially on Wilson’s part.

    A 40 year old woman dropping the F-bomb in an interview. Really classy. :roll:

  13. Holly says:

    “We’re just trying to entertain you”. OOooh so THAT’s your only motivation in being a famous performer. I thought it was, you know, all the money and attention. :roll:

  14. PJ says:

    Celebrities don’t seem to understand that their personal lives are often more entertaining than their movies.

    Isn’t that why we’re all hooked on celebrity-watching? It’s entertaining! Plus it’s real-life, not fiction.

  15. Tess says:

    Holly and PJ, you hit the nail on the head!!!!

  16. geronimo says:

    That ‘Shoot the Messenger’ comment is really bugging me. It’s annoying and absolutely typical of this ‘poor innocent me’ thing she tries to pull. She’s either clueless or arrogant:

    We’re the messengers here. We’re the ones bringing her news she doesn’t like.

    Here’s an idea, Jen: We can only use what you give us. If you provide us with better material, we’ll try and provide you with a more positive response. The ball’s in your court.

  17. Kaiser says:

    Geronimo, not to defend Pity Party (*gasp, feeling faint*), but I kind of understood what she was saying – I think it’s her version of saying “Our message is entertainment, I’m an entertainer, aka ‘the messanger’.” She just said it in a weird way. But otherwise, I agree with you. She wants to be able to tell us what to think of her as she backtracks from that *uncool* interview that blew up in her hachet-face.

  18. geronimo says:

    Kaiser – No, I do get that, I’m not being deliberately obtuse(!), what’s really bugging me here is her inarticulacy and her inability to express herself coherently!! That’s my main beef!

    My advice: she needs to gather her thoughts, pop them down in a notebook, get Courtney C to read through them and correct them, and then refer to them at all times during interviews.

  19. PJ says:

    “…life isn’t what you always imagine it to be. Life is what it is.”

    She’s saying that her real life is different from what the public thinks. Read it as “MY life isn’t what YOU (the public) imagines it to be.”

    It’s true the media (and the public) are always making up things about her, like the tabloid magazine covers that say she’s fighting with Angelina, or the people on the Internet who think she does nothing but obssess over Brad. A lot of this is sheer speculation and may be totally inaccurate.

    Victoria Beckham made a similar comment recently, when she said she gets dressed up to go out and become the celebrity “Victoria Beckham,” who she sees as a different person than her real, private self, which the public would find “boring.”

  20. geronimo says:

    @PJ – that’s exactly my point. Why not just say that instead of the gobbledygook she’s coming out with here? She’s 40 not 4.

  21. Lore says:

    Just think; if during our regular work lives we were obligated to answer our co-workers, clients, people we meet when they would ask us personal, invasive, uncomfortable questions about our finances, relationships, clothes, weight et…
    How would we handle it?
    No matter how well paid we were, how much we loved our job, how well we did our job, would we like it?
    Or would we hate that part of our job with a passion?
    What if as part of our jobs our families, children especially had to put up with being harrassed?
    What kind of a crappy job is that?

  22. NotBlonde says:

    She makes an excellent point with “life is what it is”.

    You expect your life to be one thing or you try to make it one thing or you wish it was one thing, but it is what it is. Life isn’t always how you want it to be, it just is.

    Some people are seriously trying to find fault in something she said when it makes complete sense to those of us with neurons that are actually firing.

    Even her “kill the messenger” comment makes sense.

    Beside that, I feel kinda sorry for Owen Wilson. He comes off as odd and off-putting in the interview.

  23. Mairead says:

    Did somebody order a saucer of milk? I’d put it out, but I’m so thick I’d probably try pouring out the cow it came from instead.

    It’s bothering me as much as it is geronimo; I think that she meant to say what NotBlonde interpreted. But it was put in such a hamfisted way that it’s difficult to tell. Herself and Brad Pitt were well met in this regard.

    Why doesn’t she say tell intrusive journos to feck off instead of just “feeling” like doing it? I actually don’t mind the woman, but it’s that kind of wishy-washyness that gives absolutely no substance to anything she says.

    As I said before she’d be the type I’d have a nice general chat to, but I couldn’t imagine having a decent conversation with her.

  24. Tess says:

    She can’t help it, she’s just an increasingly out-of-touch, somewhat appealing nitwit, who takes herself way too seriously.

    First she says that she’s just a messenger and entertainment is the message.

    OK. But then she scolds her churlish public for not being sufficiently “excited, inspired….positive and all joining together…” because her guy won the election.

    Well excuse me, Jennifer, but we don’t need attitude coaching from an “f-bomb dropping 40 year-old who dates man children.

  25. geronimo says:

    “…it’s that kind of wishy-washyness that gives absolutely no substance to anything she says.”

    Exactly. The end.

  26. NotBlonde says:

    She can say F**k if she wants to. You don’t know what her mood was like at the time, it might have just slipped out while she was getting exasperated.

    Anyway, she did make her “kill the messenger” comment in a weird way that could have been more clear.

    I don’t think she’s being “wishy-washy”, I think she’s being real about her situation. She wishes she could do that, but she can’t and people will always ask her about stuff that doesn’t matter to her personally, but apparently matters to a lot of people.

  27. Yourself says:

    Good for you Jen. I like this new feisty Jen. She can share all she wants. After all she is not a mother of 6 baring her bums and nipples in magazines and movies. Prostitusting herself for money. Now that is completely classless.

    Brangelina fan, lay off her. It does not helpy our case attacking her. The more you attack her, the more your saintly idol seems vicious. That is part of the reason most of the public hates Angelina Jolie.

  28. PJ says:

    Of course actors like attention, but having half-a-dozen papparazzi permanently encamped at the end of your driveway, following you everywhere you go, is somewhat off-putting. Only a handful of celebrities ever experience that, and it can’t be fun.

  29. so what says:

    I didn’t find anything she said to be wrong, understood what she was saying..Owen on the other hand, had some kind of problem????The brangie fans always come on these sites and tear Jen apart if they can..nit picking everything she says, everything she wears…thats why I don’t go to JJ anymore.

  30. doodahs says:

    I think she’s trying to express what anyone else who gets the business end of a paparazzi lens jammed up their arse every time they leave a building, thinks but doesn’t always say. Tabloids exist for entertainment and celebrities are fair game. When the press becomes so personal that your every thought, feeling, motivation or intention becomes front page news (real or fabricated) that must get a leetle scary.

    There are actors and there are celebrities and some actors become celebrities. Is that self induced or does the media choose you? It’s an interesting phenomenon… I often wonder what the difference is for an actor and a celebrity who acts. Some actor’s strive for celebrity but when they become celebrities, they lose the freedom to simply be an actor. Double edged sword no?

    Not sure if this even relates to this post at this point but it’s something I wonder…

  31. Mairead says:

    “The more you attack her, the more your saintly idol seems vicious.” EH?
    neither of us mentioned AJ nor did the article. I kindly ask you to do what you order us to do about JA and leave her out of threads she’s not mentioned in. (Mind you, using the voiceboxes of people she’s never met to speak through IS one hell of a trick)

    I’m still at a loss to see where I “tore her apart”. “Don’t shoot the messenger” wasn’t used in the right context, and the Life isn’t what you imagine it is etc. sounds trite. If this was about anyone else you wouldn’t say boo to me about it.

    I should invite you to watch me when I try and read consultants reports, or attempt to write a press release or a short article then (God I hate doing those things) you’d see something being ripped to shreds. :twisted:

    I don’t get precious over anything that I write and take correction in the spirit that it’s intended in, so I refuse to feel guilty about critising the words rather than the person saying them.

  32. monica says:

    so many of these posts are out of line and have a hateful tone. i just don’t get it…

  33. Holly says:

    I dont think anyone has been hateful, just realistic. Since when does the Celebrity badge gain you a free pass from criticism? I’d criticize anyone this visible and accessible to me. I do it to politicians just as often. We all probably silently criticize everyone around us on a daily basis, whether we’d like to admit it or not. The difference is, we’re united in our criticism because we all happen to know of her.

    I’m sure if y’all knew a few of the people I slag on in my daily life, like my stupid buttslut neighbor, you’d be trashin’ ‘em, too. The diff is, Jenn is visible and we have a platform for voicing our disdain or criticisms.

    In fact, its that lack of criticism towards public figures that leads us into believing their self serving tripe. And that fosters an unhealthy and unrealistic standard of public normalcy, one that is very harmful to those who don’t fit in.

    I question JA as I do any celebrity, because their image is something contrived to sell the product that is them. As it turns out, I research and question the products I spend my money on, too. Why should I not do so with celebrities? Their money comes from people like me. Why should someone profiting off of a false image be above reproach? That’s why I don’t get.

  34. morgs says:

    I like the feisty Jen. I love that she dropped and “F-bomb”. Owen looks a bit odd in that header picture…

  35. Kristen says:

    Yourself ~

    Those photos of Angelina breast feedingwere beautiful. Prostituting herself – the other day you said she was using it as a PR campaign.

    So which is it?

  36. Cheyenne says:

    Dropping the F-bomb in a public interview doesn’t make you look feisty or strong or independent; it makes you look cheap and common and ill-bred. You would never see Nicole Kidman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Meryl Streep, or, for that matter, Angelina Jolie, talking like that in public.

    Every time Aniston opens up he mouth lately, in goes her foot.

  37. Kristen says:

    Mairead ~

    You didn’t tear her apart – Yourself is on her JA for President pedastle. I agree with everything you said. You made perfect sense to me.

  38. Kristin says:

    So this is Jen having a pity party? When Angelina said “How many times do I have to prove I’m innocent” (Or something to that effect) does that mean she was holding a “pity party”? I just don’t understand why every Aniston hater calls her a pity party?

  39. Susan says:

    This right here is a case study in what makes Jen fascinating. She gives one interview and says a few comments and within a day it is on every blog site and the most commented on. People argue about what she said and what she meant and how she shouldn’t have said something or what she should have said. She is in every magazine every week, on blogs for everything she does (even eating out)paps camp out at her home, everyone wants to know about what Jen is doing and how she is doing. And lovers and haters both cannot get enough of her.

    What I find funny is that those who hate her, tell her to shut up and say she is just looking for attention continue to post about her. If this really was the case and she wanted attention wouldn’t the best thing to do to get back at her would be to quit posting and showing her that nobody cares? Just saying.

    Also talking about your ex-husbands new partner is not really talking about your personal life. Calling an ex-husbands partner uncool really doesn’t have much to do with a personal life. Brad is not part of her personal life at this point. Now if she was saying how her and John love to sit in the tub and talk or how her and John spend the weekends then that would be talking about her personal life.

    Come on you haters show her who is who and stop posting about her. Show her that no one cares! LIke that is going to happen LOL.

  40. Susan says:

    “Dropping the F-bomb in a public interview doesn’t make you look feisty or strong or independent; it makes you look cheap and common and ill-bred. ” YOu do realize that Angie dropped the F-bomb just two weeks ago when talking. She was taped saying the F-bomb. Obviously you forgot this when you posted your comment.

    And to the above question. They like to say that Aniston has a pity party because they believe it makes her look weak and whiny. HOwever in the eyes of a fan like myself, I personally love it. I love the fact that she has “pity parties” when she is sad. Personally it makes me love her more and everytime the word is used here I love it. They think it makes her look bad but in reality it makes her seem human and not like a robot. All women have pity parties – but the ones here like to pretend that women should not show emotions (except at a death), or ever admit that as women we have moments where we are down or hurt. Their ideal women is one who never displays emotion, always has a man and states how great he is (looks at him with adoration), always does what your man wants (i.e. have children when he wants regadless), always look after your man (or else he will leave and it will be your fault, believes that a woman is nothing without children (after all what else were we made for), and believe that even if a women has millions, been in hit shows, had movies that made alot of money that women is a failure all because she does not have a man. Women are to be perfect here on this forum and no one tolerates a women who steps out of that box expecially to have emotion. That is why all the hate for Jen – can you believe it she was sad for a while such a poor example for all womenhood.

  41. geronimo says:

    Mairead – thanks for having the patience to point out the glaring illogic at play here, particularly your “If this was about anyone else you wouldn’t say boo to me about it.” I’m sure the ‘tearing apart’ comment was aimed at me too. :roll:

    Holly – well said! 8)

  42. chick says:

    i just had a good lol. the episode in which Maniston appeared on “30 Rock” is listed at as “The One with the Cast from Night Court”. no mention of Maniston anywhere, that is how much she sucked. LMAO!!!!! :lol: :lol:

  43. monica says:

    um….hello! angelina drops the f bomb all the time. the last time she did it was when she was crying about her mom’s memories. if you are going to use her as a reference, at least get it right.

    anywhooooo…. i liked this interview a lot. she is really growing on me. i read the book and although movie adaptations are never as great as the books they are based on (with some exceptions), i am exceited to go see this. i only wish i could bring my puppies with me!

  44. monica says:

    ohhh… and i agree with the first poster. she looks great in that dress.

  45. Mairead says:

    No geronimo. If I was being patient, I’d just smile indulgently and ignore the nonsense.

    And no Susan, just because we comment on her doesn’t mean we’re “fascinated” by her- curious maybe, but not fascinated. It mainly means that there’s an article we want to comment on or a comment to respond to.

    It’ like reading the back of the cereal box when you eat breakfast. You’ll probably read the text and nutrition information at least once every new box you buy. You don’t do it because you find reading about flakes of golden maize enthralling; you read it because it’s there.

    And I’m afraid Cheyenne that I f*ckin’ swear like b*ggery all the b0llocking time :mrgreen:

  46. Cheyenne says:

    Susan, dear, just because I comment on Aniston doesn’t mean I find her remotely fascinating. It’s kind of like watching a train wreck. You know you shouldn’t look but you can’t help it.

  47. daisy424 says:

    Accurate analogy Mairead.

    I am addicted to profanity also. I would use it more here, but those comments end up in the naughty bin for CB to fish out.

    Sorry CB Moderator.

  48. DD says:

    Aniston looks really good in those photos. What’s so hard to get about “life isn’t what you always imagine it to be. Life is what it is”? Though I think it’s too quick to be suggesting this is a positive time for America… you should wait and see first before you start gushing about the future president.

  49. NotBlonde says:

    chick: the episode where Steve Martin showed up was called Gavin Volure….what is your point? She wasn’t playing herself unlike Jerry Seinfeld or Oprah.

  50. Susan says:

    Aniston does look so good in that photo. Amazing that she is 40 and looks so good. Anyway. It does appear that Owen is still not totally himself. It must be awful to be asked questions never knowing if someone is going to bring up your past. Poor guy. I actually really like him and the movies he makes. Really hoping that he will get better soon.

  51. roller says:

    she looks great in those pics

  52. Susan says:

    Cheyenne: Pretend all you want you posting tells a different story. And if Jennifer is a train wreck – well we all could use some train wrecking. she looks great and is having a great life. X17 has stuff about her weekend. Seems like she had a big house warming/tree decorating party. Once thing I really like about her is all her friends – so rare in hollywood.

  53. Best of British says:

    Susan – 100% agree with everything you’ve written. Jennifer Aniston is very fucking cool and I would be pretty damn happy if I had lived her life.

  54. Cheyenne says:

    Susan, we are both adults, so let us agree to disagree. I don’t think I’d want the kind of train wrecking she’s had to put up with over and over again — being dumped by every man she dates, and publicly humiliated. Doesn’t do much for the ego, know what I’m saying? But if this is something you want to emulate, have at it. :roll:

    Meanwhile, I thought you might like to see a lovely photo of Aniston’s ex-in-laws spending an enjoyable night out. The occasion was the Los Angeles premiere of “Benjamin Button”.

  55. aleach says:

    YIKES owen wilson looks weirdddd in that picture!! what happened??!!

  56. Ter says:

    In their defense these are just actors trying to manuever in Hollywood. It must be hard to do press for a film that was probably in the can a year ago and repeating things over and over again. But we have to remember that most actors seek this art form because they are completely insecure and long for the attention they get from being someone else on stage or in film. I’m not sure how seriously we should take them when they open their mouths for any other reason than to act. So I say, cut them some slack and stop the over analyzing, it’s going to drive you crazy.

  57. geronimo says:

    Mairead – Nice analogy! And by patience, I was admiring the calm, rational way in which you responded to eye-rolling rubbish! 8)

    Re fascination. Yes, I am fascinated. At how this very ordinary, bland woman, despite being a very one-dimensional actress and having so little of interest to say, continues to get the amount of attention she does. That IS fascinating.

  58. nina says:

    Not everyone has their ego driven exclusively by their relationships with men. Relationships with men (actually – “romantic relationships” would be a more PC way of saying it) is just a tiny part of a successful woman’s life.

  59. Susan says:

    “being dumped by every man she dates” I am not sure how you think that you know this. What exactly happened to her and vince or her and Paul. I don’t think that she was dumped but that both parties decided to end the relationships. Again you need to actually tell facts. If Vince or Paul have stated that they dumped her please post.

    “publicly humiliated’ I assume you are refering to Brad here? He is the only one who has humiliated her.

    And see the bottom section of your post is the problem. Brad and Jen live seperate lives now and why would you bring up Brad/Angie and the in-laws on a Jen post. No one really cares. The Brad/Angie fans need to move on and quit connecting these two together. It is over. Move on. Jen has moved on you need to as well.

  60. Cheyenne says:

    LOL! “No one really cares”?! Is that why the Aniston fans are still bashing Angelina as a home-wrecker four years after the split?

  61. Susan says:

    Cheyenne: Again your post shows that you are unable to move on. Jolie is known as a homewrecker because the media has called her that. What you are saying is the same as saying that fans of Rosetta Getty are the only ones calling Sienna Miller a homewrecker. Angie and Brad had an affair – the media calls anyone who admits to loving a married person and is involved with that person when the marriage ends a homewrecker. It has nothing to do with Jen fans. Sienna Miller will always be known as a homewrecker regardless of whether that marriage was over before they got together or not. That is how the media is. Angie being known as a homewrecker has nothing to do with Jen. You really need to move on. Angie and Jen have nothing to do with each other. Unfortunately the Brad/Angie fans continue to insist they do and continue to post about them in the same posts. Really sad. Move on. It is beyond me why someone would post a picture of Brad/Angie at a premiere on a Jen post? Can you explain the motive behind that. It is just to weird. It is the Brad/Angie fans who cannot stop talking about Jen not visa versa. But whatever the interesting thing is that thanks to Brad/Angie fans Jen gets more coverage than ever. So go at it.

  62. sasha says:

    I used to be a Jen fan… but in the past few months it’s diminished a bit. I used to think she was moderately intelligent, and she had a cool natural style that reminds me of my quirky/cute friends.

    But then she opened her mouth a few months ago, and scaaary stuff came out. Calling someone “uncool” is so inredibly lame and second grade… can’t imagine any celeb using a word so stupid to describe such an emotional situation lol it sounds more like something John’s ex, Jessica would say!

    Her standard language from the interviews I’ve read recently seems somewhat cocky mixed with silly slang, psychobabble and profanity. It’s nothing like the breezy fun person she appears to be on Friends.

    At the moment she strikes me as unintelligent, full of herself and somewhat silly. Too bad. I still hope the movie is good and love Owen.

    Aniston looks like she has a really good plastic surgeon, and Wilson looks like he really needs an appointment with one. My goodness.

    Aniston has more class in one little finger than Angelina will ever have in her life time. She is living her life but there is an elephant in the room she cannot ignore. She has acted with diginity through all this.

    Brangelinites like seeing things through their tinted glasses. Angelina is always saying the F word and they still think she has class. Thankfully 90% of the public thinks she is trash. Now she poses with Brad’s parents. Obviously it is another PR ploy. She actually looks high in those pictures Cheyenne and her manic laugh reeks of desperacy. Brad looks like ‘enough already, if you carry on like that, no one will buy our ‘happy family’ PR’.

    I personally can’t figure out whether Aniston is a raging idiot, or she’s a drama queen who loves throwing fuel on the fire. If you’re a fan, stop reading now.

    She has a habit of saying the worst things, fueling more tabloid drama.

    1. She stopped talking to her mother b/c mom wrote an awful tell-all book, then she talked about their split over and over on Oprah, Diane Sawyer, and in Rolling Stone, etc. Double standards much?

    2. After the tabloids said their marriage was on the rocks, she responded that she didn’t know whether Pitt was the love of her life and was still wondering, fueling even more tabloid gossip about their faltering marriage. Stupid!

    3. Asked about Angelina, she actually answers the question, then blames Vogue for going “tabloid”? She could’ve chosen to say, “that’s so yesterday,” but no. Again, she fuels the tabloid speculation even further. Same PR tactic??

    4. She says Mayer is “inexperienced” with the celeb. press to excuse his blabbing to TMZ about their break-up. Then, says “you won’t hear from that man again.” Then, she talks about their relationship in interview after interview, gushing about his “guitar ability” and what not. Hypocrite much?

    Seriously, I used to be a fan of this woman, but I am not an idiot. Jen obviously loves adding fuel to the tabloid fire, then playing Ms. Innocent and blaming someone else. Sorry, I don’t buy the act anymore; it’s just sad. Grow up!

    Anyways, I’m no fan of Angelina either, much for the same reason. She loves the tabloids too much and it’s cost her career-wise and PR-wise, I feel.

    Sasha – “Her standard language from the interviews I’ve read recently seems somewhat cocky mixed with silly slang, psychobabble and profanity. It’s nothing like the breezy fun person she appears to be on Friends.”

    The “breezy fun person she appears to be on Friends” was a ficticious character… Rachel was not real. Comprendez?
