Lost cool meeting Aniston

Makes Statement

1436976099_jj-watt-jennifer-aniston-467Watt says he completely lost his cool while meeting his Aniston, his lifelong celebrity crush, at their talent agency.

It was incredible. She was so sweet. She was awesome. Everybody has kind of known for a long time that she was the one person that I’ve wanted to meet… And she was really sweet and awesome and I’m thankful that she was so cool because I was not. If I went back – if there was like a tape of it and I could watch it again, there are many things that I would do differently. But no, I shook her hand and we had a conversation, so I don’t think that I completely botched it. But she was very sweet and I had a good time.

The Dr. Oz Show interview


Aniston reveals her struggle with chronic insomnia and letting herself go for her role in Cake.

I have a hard time sleeping. Sleep is a tough one for me. My brain, the committee in my head, if I wake up at three in the morning I just start having conversations and they won’t shut up and then I can’t get back to sleep. I do have three animals and a human being in the bed, so there are all these distractions.

Jennifer Aniston interview


Aniston returns as a guest on Conan to promote her latest film, Horrible Bosses 2. She also talks about a deleted sex scene on the film, as well as some of the sexy jewelry that she chose for her role.

It was an active choice. It was one of those things where they laid out the jewelry and I just gravitated towards that beautiful piece of jewelry. And I put it on. I was like “This is unique and cool.” So then I just kept trying on other bits of her wardrobe. I had kept it. And “great, you chose the [Bleep] ring!”

jennifer-aniston-covers-harpers-bazaarAniston appears on the cover of the December 2014/January 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. She talks about her fiancé, her 40’s, and not holding grudges.

[I’m] a forgiving person.I absolutely am. I think it’s extremely important to forgive. Otherwise it just builds up like toxic waste. There’s nothing worse than holding a grudge. Listen, people can do unforgivable things, but you have to let it go and say, ‘Look, we’re all human beings. We make mistakes.’ To hold any kind of resentment is like taking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die.

I think that it’s a surprise. I think that’s why I can get away with it That’s what I enjoy, for sort of the the shock value and seeing people’s faces. She’s sort of known as some ‘thing’ for sort of a period of time, and so it’s fun to kind of go out. I mean, that’s why I’m so excited to do it to begin with. This [role] would never come my way! I was psyched for it.

I just had to do it. They rolled the cameras and I just had to bite the bullet. It was a little bit uncomfortable at first, but then you get used to it. At first you’re doing all the rehearsals alone and then all of the sudden you’re on set with three cameras and a bunch of crew. It’s a little intimidating at first.

Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want. As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won’t settle.

It feels very surreal to be honest. I was born here and it’s sort of something you went and saw as a kid and got excited about just walking and seeing the names. To imagine that you’re going to be there is really special. It’s fun.

I love Chris, and he’s the bane of my existence at the same time because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my best look. How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen.

Marley & Me

Film Appearance

Aniston plays Jenny in this dramedy directed by David Frankel from the memoir written by John Grogan. Jenny is married to John, played by Owen Wilson, and together they adopt a Labrador puppy. The 12 pound puppy quickly grows into a 100 pound unstoppable bundle of energy that dominates their lives and teaches them how to be the best people they can be.

The reason I wanted to be in this movie is that it wasn’t the sort of girl trying to get the guy or the guy trying to get the girl or the chase and then you end the movie where they ride off into the sunset. This is sort of the prequel to that.

We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate.

Pitt, Aniston separate

Pitt and Aniston separate after seven years together. The separation comes after learning that Pitt and Jolie have started dating on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Pitt on feeling lost in the 1990s:

I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.

Aniston says she was shacked when she saw images of Pitt and Jolie on the beach in Africa with Jolie’s son Maddox, and in a W magazine photo spread..

Brad is missing a sensitivity chip.

I love Brad; I really love him. I will love him for the rest of my life. I don’t regret any of it, and I’m not going to beat myself up about it. The sad thing, for me, is the way it’s been reduced to a Hollywood cliche — or maybe it’s just a human cliche.
