Jennifer Aniston: ‘I’m not a fan of selfies, I don’t understand them’


The tabloids this week are full of stories about Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. They are “at their breaking point.” Or “he dumped her on her birthday.” Or they’re “headed for a permanent split.” You get the idea. Even Gossip Cop’s denial seemed lukewarm. Apparently, they haven’t seen each other in more than 50 days and it doesn’t look like either of them is eager to meet up and prove the haters wrong. Which brings me to a thought… do you think the timing of all of this is coincidental? I do not. The Oscars are two Sundays from now. I think there are two situations that will happen: one, Jennifer and Justin will reunite in spectacular fashion for the Oscars and try to one-up The Leg or two, they will announce a breakup around the Oscars in an attempt to hijack the attention if and when Brad wins an Oscar for executive producing 12 Years a Slave. Those are my theories. Enjoy.

Meanwhile, Jennifer did another infomercial interview to promote her advertising deals. You can read the full Self piece here, but I’m including everything below. Self did it as “fill in the blank” so the bolded part is what Self gave her and she finished the sentence.

The food I love so much that if I dropped it on the floor, I’d eat it anyway is…A nacho. I fry the chips myself. Just take a tortilla, cut it into triangles, and throw ’em in coconut oil.

My ultimate stress reliever is… exercise! And actually meditation. I do that for 20 minutes every day.

The one song that gets me moving without fail is… “White Lines,” that old rap song. I made a playlist of all those awesome songs from Jimmy Fallon’s “History of Rap.”

My postworkout beauty ritual is… wiping my skin. I always use Aveeno [she’s a spokeswoman] Ultra Calming Wipes–they’re easy if you aren’t near a sink.

If I could trade bodies with one person for 24 hours, I’d pick… Would I really want to give it back? I’d love to be able to ski like a crazy person, like Lindsey Vonn. Then I’d also like to have Gisele’s body, just ‘cuz, why not?

I know I can beat anyone in… Concentration. That’s a good game. And Rock Mahjong! When I had a Megatouch–it’s a wonderful machine with over 100 games–I played that too much. And also Castle Bandits! OK, next question.

No one knows that I can… make a great Bloody Mary. It’s actually just Mr. & Mrs. T Bloody Mary Mix! It’s very trailer trash. But it’s the amount of lime, a splash of olive juice and a couple of other secrets I can’t give away.

It’s Sunday morning at 11 a.m. You’ll find me… having eggs and a bagel and reading the paper. I start with the front page, then the travel section, arts and leisure or the calendar. How I take my eggs depends on my mood. But I always throw a yolk in there–the yolk’s got a bad rap.

If you want to make me smile… There are so many ways. Show me puppy videos. Cute puppy videos.

If yoga didn’t exist, I’d invent it.

When I need extra motivation, I… tell myself just do it. You can do anything for an hour.

Before I go to bed, I… always wash my face and brush my teeth. I use a mild-scented Aveeno cleanser–I’m not a big scents person–and brush my teeth.

If I had to give up Mexican food for a year or post a selfie on Instagram for a year… I’d definitely give up Mexican food for a year. I don’t have Instagram. And I’m not a fan of selfies. I don’t understand them. I feel like there’s enough out there, why add to it?

I’m dying to try… India. I wanna explore it.

My world. My rules. I would… command everyone to do so many things! Be kind. Oh, I would command everyone to stop buying tabloids! I would command everyone to stop violence.

My friends know that they’ll drive me crazy if… they sing along to music! Oh my God, I hate it. I like to hear the song–don’t sing it. Please! I’d record you to sing it if I wanted to hear you sing it.

My guilty pleasure is… I have to say, The Voice and America’s Got Talent. The auditions really kind of are fabulous.

If I programmed my own TV network, it would… air good news! Just positive stories. Heroic stories. Cute puppy dogs doin’ stuff. Great television shows. I’d bring back all the great television shows from the 70’s. Put Taxi back on the air. Things to make you smile.

It’s not surprise that Jennifer isn’t a fan of selfies or Instagram or whatever – people always say that she’s not very plugged in or technology-oriented, and she doesn’t “get” social media. I chuckled when she said she wants to “explore” India – she’s always talked a big game about wanting to travel and explore, and then year after year, she just goes to Cabo and that’s about it. I think that Jennifer doesn’t even realize how much of a homebody/nester/creature of habit she is. There’s nothing wrong with being a creature of habit (I am, big time), but just be aware of that part of yourself. Also: Aveeno got two shout-outs! I’m surprised she didn’t at least mention SmartWater or Living Proof.

    I agree with her. Maybe my age but I don’t get selfies. Feeds people egos in all the wrong ways.

    • Macey says:

      I dont get selfies either. I just couldnt imagine sitting around taking pics of myself just to put on the internet, especially the bathroom mirror shots…just dont get it but then Ive never needed that kind of validation which I can only assume is the reason ppl do it.

      • Erinn says:

        The only time I take them is to send photos of my making obnoxious faces to the fiance. I don’t go around taking them and posting them, expecting compliments haha. I have so many selfies popping up on my fb feed from other people, it’s ridiculous.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I HATE bathroom shots–they look so tacky.

        I actually just put a few pictures of myself on FB for the first time in the two years I’ve had it. They’re just shots of my face (and my dog), but I took them with the camera on my laptop.

    • jess says:

      I agree with the selfies too. I dont understand why everyone has to Take pics all the time. The ones who Take pics of their food are the worse.

      • Macey says:

        I hear a lot of ppl complaining about food pics but I actually dont mind them b/c they give me some ideas on new dishes to try. I wouldnt like it if it was excessive but I have picked up some decent recipes from my food pic loving friends., like Baked Macaroni & Cheese Pizza..yum.

      • MrsB says:

        Haha. I am a food poster, don’t hate me. I just get really excited about my food 😉 But I definitely do agree about the selfies. and the hashtags that go along with it #blessed #happythursday blah blah whatever.

      • ZigZagZoey says:

        Well, I don’t twitter, but I’m actually surprised that the two words hash and tag are still actually used….Everything gets abbreviated these days…..Surprised it isn’t just HT….
        I guess it would work if you were taking a pic of hash and eggs..
        Hash tag this and that drives me nuts. I also can’t stand seeing tweets on a tv show….They never say anything important…..The idiot just wants to see their tweet on tv….

      • Nikita says:

        i love food posters 🙂

    • Mel M says:

      Agree 100%! I’m 32 and I don’t understand taking pictures of yourself and posting them to social media to show everyone how “awesome” you look. . . I have FB and Instagram and have never ever had the desire or need to take a picture of myself and post it.

    • Esmom says:

      Selfies drive me crazy, too. Unless it’s a special circumstance, like you bump into, say, Jimmy Fallon on the street, there’s no need to take constant photos of yourself and post them.

      A friend on FB puts a new selfie up just about every day, always with the same duckface. I have no idea what she thinks she is accomplishing,

      • Tara says:

        FB and social media brings out weird things in people. I do get that social media has some cool functions, but the constant oversharing and self-promotion can make me forget what I actually like about people in every day life. At least one friend of mine is completely insufferable on Facebook. If I didn’t know her, I don’t know if I’d believe how cool she is.

    • Katherine says:

      Of course she doesn’t need selfies, she can call on others like the paps to take her selfies.

      We’ll just ignore the actual selfies she did take and post online.

  2. yennefer says:

    She would command everything to stop buying tabloids. Ha ha. Nice try, Jennifer.

    • Springtime says:

      See she claims she hates them because she pays her hired help to post them. That’s how she gets away with everything. “The I don’t like it but they did it/said it not me angle.”

      Very similar to her plant and deny games she loves to play.

      • Christina says:

        Didn’t she also do one with uncle Terry and uncle Terry and Justien, another selfies when she got the top of her ear pierced, and a make up free selfies. All 4 pictures which were where post on this blog.

        So is her thing that she dose do them herself but dosen’t mind posing in selfies with friends.

      • Cecilia says:

        She didn’t say she never did selfies. She said she wasn’t a fan…

      • Nee says:

        Well Cecilia, if she is not a fan then why does she do selfies in the first place?
        You sure do a poor job defending her….

      • Cecilia says:

        @ Nee…I’m sure many people have tried selfies & ended up not a fan of them. She tried it — she’s not a fan.

      • Lily says:

        How can you “try” selfies? It is not food! She tried it??? You can’t “try” selfies. You either do them or you don’t, she does them while saying she doesn’t like them…she needs to make up her mind and get her lies straight, especially about her hair.
        Was her hair damaged or did she want a change, she has told two conflicting stories….

      • Cecilia says:

        how can you be a fan or non-fan of anything unless you try it first. So if I go sky diving & decide after trying it that I’m not a fan…

      • FLORC says:

        I think the point trying to be made here is Aniston may say she’s not a fan, but her actions say otherwise. I’m no fan of selfies and being in other peoples social network photos. You will see me duck and dodge those things like my life depended on it.

        Bottom line. If Aniston isn’t a fan she is less likely to pose and smile for them. Seems all her selfies are very flattering of her so i’m thinking she really does like it, but wants to play coy with us. Much like her tabloid strategy of hating the tabs, but planting stories in them only to deny them later and create attention around her.

      • sienna says:

        Just as an aside, I am starting a new drinking game where anytime in these comments that I read the word “selfie” I drink….

        I’m not sure I will make it to the bottom.

      • Elle Kaye says:

        When I think of a selfie, I think of a person holding the camera out to take a photo of just themself, not a photo where there are two or more people. One seems narcissistic (look at me!! look at me pout!!), where a photo with another person seems about the moment.

      • StaceyP says:

        Not to quibble, but if a photo includes someone else, would it be a selfie? Or if someone else takes the picture would it be a selfie?

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      @badrockandroll – IKR!

      “And I’m not a fan of selfies.” said Jennifer Anniston EVER. Sure. You just happen to be papped almost as much as a Kardashian.

      Jen, I like you, but stick to Cabo vacationin’, getting Toasted, and wearin’ Bikinis. Please let me love you. Don’t ruin it. Shh.

      Please don’t speak. No. No. No. Don’t Speak! Helen Sinclair –

  3. Cecilia says:

    I liked the interview. Funny & entertaining.

  4. DenG says:

    I don’t buy the Aveeno hype. At least Robin Wright was honest about botox/frotox, etc.–everyone does it. Even the ones who claim only to have done it once. Like Aveeno-Aniston.

  5. JaDeRu says:

    “Stop buying tabloids”
    Okay Jen.

  6. amanda says:

    Three take aways:

    1. The body swap question. She picks women with body’s not all that different from her own. What an unimaginative bore.

    2. Is she saying Mr. & Mrs. T’s Bloody Mary Mix, itself, is very trailer trash? Because it’s what? Common and can be found in grocery stores? I find that rude and pretentious of her.

    3. No singing along? Seriously? Has she never been on a road trip? Gotten ready for a night out with friends?

    I’ve never really had any kind of a negative reaction to her. Until now. This interview was very enlightening.

    • Badirene says:

      Yeah the no singing along would kill me, put me in a car and I won’t stop yodelling even if I don’t know the words, oh and I can’t actually sing. The mister has put me in charge of music for road trips, I am the mixed mp3 queen.

  7. Mendy says:

    Bloody Mary mix is trailer trash????

  8. Elle says:

    I’m totally with her about selfies – it’s seems so vain and really says something about our self-involved culture. And as for people singing along to music, the worst is being stuck on a long car journey. I have a friend who does it and she always a few lyrics behind…. makes me want to scream.

  9. epiphany says:

    Really? Hmmm, let’s see… there’s the “no makeup” selfie, the “I love my hairstylist” selfie, the “look at my new ‘do” selfie… yeah, you hate selfies! But then, you’re such a serious actress, focused on your “amazing” work, you shy away from any media attention. Yeah, this all makes sense now.

    • Springtime says:

      You don’t get it. She did not post them her hired hands did. So you know that’s how she gets a pass, for the zillioneth time.

      • epiphany says:

        Ahhh, technicality, thy name is Aniston!

      • FLORC says:

        Yea. She only posed for those pics and approved of them getting posted. If she didn’t there’s a good chance she would cut ties with them for invading her privacy.

        And didn’t John M. claim she was forever stuck in the 90’s. Hated social media and smart phones. Still had a house line and answering machine surrounded by beanie babies. She is stuck in the apex of her personal fame? Something like that.

      • John Wayne Lives says:

        @Epiphany lol this is it right here! Thanks for the lol 🙂
        And OH MY GOD this chick it’s boring, I’m actually laughing!
        @ CB, you totally called it on that “I want to explore India” BS.. you have millions of dollars and all the time in the world. just do it already or shut up *eyeroll*

  10. Mhmm says:

    Just curious: how do you celebitches feel about people singing along to music?

    • FLORC says:

      Hmm… Personally, i’m fine with it. As long as you’re singing just to have fun and not trying to sound like the person singing. That drives me mad!

      Or when you’re singing over a really good song and just ruining it for me. My husband knows if we’re in the car for a good length of time and 1 of my favorite songs comes on it’s a no go for drowning it out.
      Of course, if it’s a duet it’s fair game and if it’s a going out night it’s fair game.

    • Bea says:

      I’m good with it – I love to do it. I especially love to sing at the top of my lungs while driving and smile at all the other drivers who look at me like I’m crazy cause -yeah – I’m happy.

    • daisy says:

      When its done loud it’s annoying – like when my husband does it. I say “who sings this?” And he’ll answer and I’ll say “Okay, now can I hear them sing it?” and I get him almost every time. It’s just a little thing we do.

    • John Wayne Lives says:

      Live and let live and have fun doing it!! some people have to make everything about themselves, so lame! Besides anyone who has teenage girls knows there will be singing lol

  11. MonicaQ says:

    I think the only selfies I’ve taken of myself are for Cosplay progress and showing off my bruises from football (BATTLE SCARS! RAWR!). I don’t get the #nomakeup, #nofilter thing.

  12. Nee says:

    She always talks about traveling, yet goes to Mexico every vacation! She has the money and the time to go to India, yet hasn’t and probably never will because it is too far outside her comfort zone.
    It seems she says what she thinks people want to hear.
    She has no sense of adventure or excitement. She is just dull, how does she have fans? What do you all see in her?

  13. ZigZagZoey says:

    I HATE having my picture taken and avoid it at all costs. And I have NEVER taken a selfie, and I don’t think I ever will.
    I especially do not understand the ones in bathrooms…..Yuck.

  14. blue marie says:

    When I was in my early 20’s I had a friend that was a lot like Jennifer. I loved her, but man being friends with her at times was a chore, so much unnecessary drama.

    My takeaway from the article is that I could never be friends with Jen because not only do I sing the songs but I make up my own words, it’s fun. And I really want some Mexican food for lunch.

    • LadySlippers says:

      Thank you! I love Mexican food and you’re the first to say something about it.

      (I hate getting my picture taking so giving up something I don’t do would be my choice. Cuz. I. Can’t. Give. Up. Mexican. Food)

  15. Jag says:

    She gave one specific product in the wipes, but not in the facial wash. tsk tsk

  16. emmie_a says:

    You can “do” social media and be plugged in to technology without liking/taking selfies! I agree with Jen, I don’t like them – I think they’re sort of too narcissistic for my liking.

    I also agree with her about homemade nacho chips (coconut oil is key). They’re heaven.

    And yeah, this was just a big Aveeno plug disguised as an interview – but I liked how she came off.

    • Esmom says:

      I thought it was fine, too. You could tell she was joking and off the cuff and clearly not willing to reveal too much about herself. People say she’s dull but I’m thinking she’s repetitive because of the questions she gets — same questions, same answers. This way she’s able to keep most stuff private.

  17. Xantha says:

    Given how vain she is I’m surprised that she doesn’t like selfies. And if people truly did destroyed tabloids she wouldn’t have much of a career left.

    • imane assi says:

      Check…This is an Emmy and a Golden Globe winner for her comedic talents…she’s a very tlented actress and the tabloids need her not the other way around…..

      • Maya says:

        She won those awards 14 years ago – has she been nominated for any of those since then? No – that’s because she is now only known for her personal life, her hair, being the ex Mrs Pitt, stripping of her clothes to get attention. Jennifer needs the tabloids as she needs her next breath.

      • epiphany says:

        You are obviously a very sweet, trusting person if you genuinely believe awards are bestowed because of talent, or that a certain actor or actress gets a role because of his or her talent. Everything in Hollywood is about business; everything. Studios want whomever is going to bring in an audience and garner media attention. Awards are given to the performer who is creating the most buzz at that time, for whatever reason. ‘ so, 14 years ago, ‘Friends’ was winding down, Aniston hadn’t won yet, she was at the height of her popularity as Mrs. Brad Pitt, they gave her the awards.
        Aniston needs the tabloids to stay in the public’s collective mind. Movie producers see the tabloids flocking to her, assume she still very popular, and cast her in films. Lisa Kudrow has far more comedic talent than Aniston, but she lacks two things, 1) Stephan Huvane 2) that killer instinct to be popular at any costs.

      • Bea says:

        Without the tabloids she would have nothing. Well, maybe she would still have her most recent award – Dirtbag of the Year (or whatever it was that she bought).

      • Lily says:

        She won those for a TV show a long time ago.
        Where are all her nominations for her film work the past 10 years??
        She can’t even get a comedic GG nom for her comedy film roles! Even Melissa Mc. managed to get an OSCAR nom for a comedy!

      • Sal says:

        You’re joking! She has no talent. She needs the tabloids and she and Huvane have proved it. With the Kardashians, Miley Cyrus, Real Housewives, Charlie Sheen etc, they don’t need her! She needs them.

    • Springtime says:

      Exactly. She would be non-existent.

  18. Happy21 says:

    Love the interview and couldn’t agree more about the selfie thing. I just don’t get it. Mind you I had photos of myself but still. I have a friend who is not an attention whore even in the slightest but she always posts selfies on Facebook. I don’t understand it. Maybe deep down she is an attention whore? She posts more than the hottest people I know. It’s very strange. Even her hubby mocks her about it…

  19. Kim1 says:

    It probably came up because of her showing up at the 2009 Oscars when both Brad and Angie were nominated.She was all lovey dovey with Mayer only to announce they break up a couple of weeks later.
    As for exploring India I recall her talking about traveling or exploring the world in 2007 Harpers Bazaar interview.I just googled the date.She is worth $100M so what’s the hold up in her traveling the world.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Kim1, who wrote: “As for exploring India I recall her talking about traveling or exploring the world in 2007 Harpers Bazaar interview.”

      Oh but that was during the time she was still attempting to convince the Public that Brad didn’t have a reason to leave her … because she’s just as adventurous as Homewrecking Angie, don’t you know.

  20. Abbicci says:

    Who needs selfies when you can just call the paps to get baby bump/smart water photos? You don’t need to take photos if you have paps at your beck and call all day to take photos for you.

  21. The Orginal G says:

    Hmnn? She washes her face and brushes her teeth before bed. Has eggs for breakfast and hopes to travel and likes re-runs of Taxi.

    If she keeps it up, she just might put the tabloids out of business afterall.

  22. Maggie says:

    Great interview! She always comes off as so down to earth.

  23. Darkladi says:

    Or for the love of…Who the hell keeps asking her questions?

  24. Dorothy says:

    I think she is terrific, have never heard anything bad about her from anyone that knows her – ever. Except that she gets very insecure at times. She has remained very real, is decent to everyone, and I mean everyone, which is quite unlike some other celebs. And yes, just in my opinion I agree with her. Selfies maybe for once in a long while for your family or best friends, okay…. but are you kidding with these grown woman plastering them all over the place? What pathetic, self-absorbed egotistical wackos…think the Gwyneth and Reese one was about as bad as it can get – uck. PS. Jen is actually very happy I heard that Paltrow has totally monopolized her entire PR team, she is glad to get a break from the attention (and not sorry to see Goopers take a tumble that has been a long time coming :-). A lot of actresses would resent it but Jen really isn’t as in to the “celeb” thing as much as people think, she really is in it for the work not the attention.

    • Lop says:

      Terrific?? Ok then. You think people are going to say something bad about her when she has Huvane as a publicist? Are you claiming to be an insider in Hollywood.
      You sound like Huvane.
      She is very into the celeb thing, very self absorbed and very full of herself, do not kid yourself thinking otherwise.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Dorothy, who wrote: ” Except that she gets very insecure at times.”

      So … she is very insecure at times, but she’s not into the ‘attention’ of celebrity … right.

    • The Original G says:

      It’s very clear that Jen isn’t in it for the attention. For her it’s about the ART.

    • Sal says:

      So you haven’t heard of Jay Mohr? Tate Donovan, John Mayer etc, all said bad things about her. She stole Justin From Heidi Bivens, I’d say that there is evidence she is not nice to everyone, and that’s before even getting to Angelina Jolie. Seriously, where have you been?

  25. Peppa says:

    She just comes off as so vapid. Aveeno, puppies, Aveeno, puppies. I have nothing against light and fun interviews, but that’s all she ever does. She gives vapid interviews peppered with product placements. Give me weird and dark pieces like the one with Peter Dinklage, or the self reflecting piece with MM from Variety, or someone witty like Rashida Jones/Mindy Kaling over this fluffy nonsense any day.

    • Ferris says:

      She was answering the questions asked of her. How is that vapid?

      • Lop says:

        Probably vapid because if she was asked any deep or interesting questions she would be at a loss for words.
        She gets these vapid, shallow questions because she is not known for anything else.

  26. Tippy says:

    “Taxi” as well as dozens of other old television programs are currently being shown on METV.

    As far as the Academy Awards are concerned, once the Oscars are handed out it becomes yesterday’s news.

    When Jenn travelled to The Vatican several years ago she needed to be shadowed by at least two bodyguards for practically the entire trip so I can only imagine how much of a hassle vacationing in India would be for her.

    • Lily says:

      People in India probably would not even take a second look at her. And she did not need those body guards at the vatican, no one seemed to be crowding her.

      Other more popular/famous celebs manage to travel the world very easily.

      • Ferris says:

        Maybe she had the bodyguards because she was worried about her safety. Many celebrities have stalkers that can be pretty scary.

        Seriously, I’m sure Jennifer would be recognized and swarmed everywhere she went in the world. Unless you live in the rainforest and don’t have a tv everyone knows who Jennifer is.

      • Penny says:

        Most travel with large security details, at least 5 guys, often more like 10. They don’t always surround the celeb, they spread out and dress normally, so you don’t necessarily notice them in pictures.

      • Josephine says:

        Actually, Ferris, my own husband would not recognize her. Not everyone knows who she is. Hugely famous people travel the world – I don’t think being recognized o raving proper security is the problem.

      • It depends. Yes, there’ll always be some crazy person out there…..but that doesn’t mean that you should use that as an excuse not to go out and do something.

        And sometimes people aren’t that interested in celebs. I came across this site by complete accident. I can’t remember who I was googling, but it was a celeb, and I clicked on an article from this site. DONE. That’s the only reason I know anything about celebrities now. But most people don’t look that kind of stuff up. Like the only time my mom reads anything celebrity related is if it’s covered in Yahoo news…..other than that, nothing.

        So if Jennifer Aniston had came up to me four years ago, I wouldn’t have had a clue to who she was. I might’ve thought that she looked slightly familiar, as I had seen a few Friends episodes, but I never would’ve thought it was her.

        And seriously–if she can go to Cabo every year with/without bodyguards, then she can at least go to some luxurious resort in India with/without the bodyguards. Just make them dress casual and smile.

  27. idk says:

    She’s definitely a creature of habit. She ate the same lunch (a salad) every day during the entire time she filmed Friends.

    Also, isn’t EVERYDAY a Sunday for her? She doesn’t have a regular 9-5 weekly job.

    Lastly, why hasn’t she gone to India then? Saving up huh Jen lol? Just go do it ! You have the money and the time girl ! How many times can you go to Cabo?

    By the way, I really liked her movie “Meet the Millers” or whatever it was called…very funny !

      Jenn, Courteney and Lisa usually all ordered the same lunch, a Cobb Salad, which can be quite filling.

    I once read an article that said you can tell if someone is narcissistic by their Facebook page.

    She’ s quite intellectually stupid. Eh, not the worst you can say about somebody, at least she’s not a Kardashian.

    But I think you can throw some nachos and a puppy at her, and that’s enough to distract her, like you’d do with a child.

    to me. ja is totally innocuous. she’s alright. she’s had a bit of a disappointment, what with ange and brad ‘en all. that shit is harsh ( if you’ve ever been at the arse end of it.) but she’s not particularly malevolent or anything. why do people get so worked up about her? looks pretty good for her age, competent comedy actress, wants love ( who doesn’t?), beau is a bit of a perma- tanned receding coif case, i think we should give her a break. harmless jen – nothing to see here, move along now.

    • Christina says:

      Heidi Bivens experience a bit of disappointment too. ( you know the whole Jen and Justin thing in all. As you know that shit is hash.

      • Yep–that was the first bit of major gossip that I saw with my own eyes (I came onto this site in late 2010), and while I thought that she was a pretty, mediocre actress (didn’t think too much of her apart from that), all that bs with Justin and Heidi really turned me off of her.

        It’s one thing to have feelings for someone who has an SO, keep your distance, and let that other person do the right thing (while you are out of it), but it’s quite another to sneak around with said person with an SO (well, not technically sneaking around, it was VERY public), while denying it to the press, and contradicting your own press releases.

        That bothered me a lot more, especially given the whole hoopla around her own divorce. If what Brad and Angelina did was cheating/affair, then what was it that Jennifer and Justin did?

    • Becky1 says:

      I agree. She’s harmless. She reminds me a bit of a friend of mine who’s very nice but a little vapid and shallow at times. Like Jen this friend also likes to vacation in the same place every year and is really into her dog and dogs and puppies in general. A nice person but not someone with whom you can have intellectual conversations or talk about current events.

      • bees says:

        @virg do you also dislike Brad and Angie based on the same reason?

        . I love this site because I learn a lot from you smart people but when it comes to this silly triangle the smartness flies out of the Window. Jen is boring, jen is vapid, Angelina is a stick figure, bottom line is that you shouldn’t expect to be entertained by somebody else’s personal life and Angie’s body is hers and if there’s a problem, she knows.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      terrah, you forgot to mention why some of us actually LIKE Jennifer Aniston.

      C’mon, Virgilia and Sugar! Jen’s a Giver! For example, Nipples. The Girl has beauteous nipples and she unselfishly shares her natural breasts with an undeserving world. –

      Surely such generosity counts for something!

      • Hahaha…I guess that counts. Personally, I wouldn’t ever want my nipples poking through my shirt, because I would feel like EVERYONE who passed by me would be zeroing in on them–even if they weren’t. But I see no shame in the game.

        And that FB page is kinda gross….I wish she would channel her nipples into some good film roles. My mom rented ‘Derailed’ today–that was a painful experience to say the least. I think the ‘rape’ scene would’ve been a lot better if she had responded to it–like the sex between lovers like it was–and also made the noises like she was being raped. Like she’s screaming at Vincent Cassel telling him to stop (that’s what Clive Owen hears), but the camera pans to see that she’s enjoying it–that would’ve been confusing and a lot better.

        Plus that scene at the end, where she dies–oh my god. You would’ve thought that someone spilled a glass of wine on her silk blouse, instead of her being shot and dying. That entire movie (everyone was horrible in it) was a wasted opportunity.

        I don’t find Jennifer flat out terrible–she’s watchable, but god. It is painful to see her try and do drama. Plus I didn’t buy the whole we’re hot’n heavy for each other–like I know that her character was supposed to be nice and sweet, and that’s why he ‘falls’ for her. But come on. You don’t need to be beautiful to send out some chemistry signals to each other. The only reason I could think of them having affairs would be if they were two rich people who were SO bored that they decided to have sex, for fun.

        Also–looking through those nipple pics for a few seconds–her old nose looked WAY better. Why?

    • Sal says:

      Nothing happened with Brad and Angelina. Nothing. Aniston decided to throw her marriage away and then she homewrecked Heidi Bivens. I hardly call that innocuous. Aniston is quite spiteful, nasty and manipulative.

    I hate Friends, it is such a stupid show. But that is not her fault, she didn’t write it. I have never seen a movie in which she acted. She seems normal and nice-ish in this interview. Don’t really get all the hate.

  32. I would love it if we had a news channel with only good news…or puppy stories. I love looking at pictures/videos of pets. I watch those videos on youtube, when soldiers come home and how their pets react–never fails to make me cry.

    Why doesn’t she just go to India?? She hasn’t been filming anything for the past 2-3 months that I’m aware of. Even if she was in NY with Justin, she could’ve taken like a week or two and went with a few friends. If I was her, I’d be GONE. She has the money to do it–or she could’ve skipped the Cabo trip and went to India instead. She’s been saying that she wants to travel more since she got with Justin, yet all she’s managed to do is a repeat of a 3 day trip in Europe.

    Oh yeah, and this interview is just a giant plug for Aveeno. Which, I’m not even convinced that she actually uses Aveeno, but whatevs. I’m just grateful that she gave me an LOL moment every single time I even see the word ‘Aveeno’, all because of that ridiculous commercial. It’s not that I don’t think that she’s ugly or anything–but seriously? Who puts the line ‘The Beautiful Jennifer Aniston’ in a commercial about lotion? Elizabeth Freaking Taylor wouldn’t have been able to pull that one off.

    And my guilty pleasure is romance novels and really, really cheesy lifetime movies. There is always time for romance novels, but I sometimes get in a mood and just want to watch something outright terrible….I go to lifetime. I spent six weeks with my uncle in Texas, watching lifetime at night–hadn’t seen it in years. It was awful (glorious). They used to have good movies though–they have some every once in while. I just bought this one off of Amazon called ‘Stolen Women, Captured Hearts’—I bought it solely because of the eye candy i.e. the dude who plays as the Indian brave/ chief Tokalah was HOT. Oh my Lord. He spent all of the movie without a shirt……the movie is formulaic, etc—but it was worth the SEVENTEEN bucks I paid for it.

    I agree selfies are pretty silly, but i don’t think it’s that hard to understand why people take them. If taking a nice photo of yourself at a good angle with good lighting helps you feel good about yourself then go for it i say. When you get right down to it in this age of celebrity worshipping most of us are needing reassurance that we are ok too. Jen needs to lighten up on the selfie brigade, although i did like the short and sweet interview for the most part.

  34. Sal says:

    Oh my goodness! This woman is something else! She is the biggest hypocrite of the highest order.
    She posted a selfie with her short hair and stud in her ears.
    As if she’d ever look at the travel section, for what reason? She hates traveling, I’d sooner believe she reads the sports section before ever believing she reads the travel section.
    And if people stopped buying tabloids, her career would go south, that’s why she has Huvane of the plant-and-deny fame. Even veteran tabloid writers have commented on Aniston’s need to be in tabloids, first hand. I’m sure some fanatics will believe all this but truly, she really is a riot. Apart from them who is she trying to convince? Or is she just trying to be contrary in a sarcastic way for attention now?
