Ewan McGregor vs. Jennifer Aniston

Let’s compare recent quotes from thespians Ewan McGregor and Jennifer Aniston explaining their movie flops:

McGregor on “Stay”:

McGregor says, “I think [The film, Stay, is] open to interpretation, and that’s a good thing, right? It took ages to get a release. There was great debate, I believe, over whether any of it made sense and how it would subsequently be sold…”

He added, “But you know, nevermind. It doesn’t matter to me whether the films I’m in are successful or not. I do them because I like them, not because of box-office potential. That doesn’t mean I don’t want them to be successful, because of course I do. I love the buzz you get from being in a really big hit. It’s just with me, that doesn’t happen all the time.”

Now here’s Jennifer Aniston talking about “Rumor Has it” in her typically simplistic, dismissive way that manages to blame everyone else for her personal failings:

She’s quoted as saying: “The worst experience of my life, the worst experience; the worst film.”

“It sounded like a great idea, an interesting backdrop for a romantic comedy. But it was never fleshed out, never fully realised.”

“And for me personally, I was going through a horrible time…”

“I wasn’t at my best as an actor. I was unmotivated by it. Why talk about it? We can let that little train go by.”

Aniston, again we must coach you on how to give quotes. You’re supposed to be upbeat and vague. You may even get intellectual about it like Mr. McGregor and explain why the film gut mucked up, but you’re still supposed to act like it doesn’t bother you.

How much did you get paid for that terrible film? We’ve been much nicer about crappy websites that we had to build to ignorant CEO specs that cost a few grand. Get a clue.

From her bleak fashion to her even worse personality, Aniston proves over and over that she doesn’t have what it takes to be a big screen star.

Since we’re sick of Aniston, here are some pictures of the gracious and thoughtful Ewan McGregor looking a little worse for wear. Ewan is currently filming “Beatrix Potter” in London with Renee Zellweger and is wearing the moustache for his role.
