When all else fails…
There is still her body.
And her body is sick.
More from Jennifer Aniston in December Vogue. More for Victoria Beckham to stab furiously.
These are much, much better than what Anna Wintour chose to slap on the front. Less ragged, less sun damaged, and again… that body. And her dog. Her dog Norman is adorable.
The article is a great juicy read. The details about her house, about her “estate” manager… good for a chuckle. That her image is founded up on the illusion that Jennifer Aniston is the girl next door – but only if you live in Malibu. Interior seems very ocean-screaming zen, a perfect place to dance like there’s no one watching.
Two interesting passages to highlight. When asked about her upcoming movie He’s Just Not That Into You, which has been pushed back more than once, Jen offers:
"I liked my story line, but…." She stammers and sputters. "I don't know. I don't…like…girls…whining…and complaining…about…wanting a man! I never liked Sex and the City, the kind of thing where women only feel empowered once they find the Man. It is just not up my alley. I don't believe in it. There is nothing you can control about love. Somebody once said, Everything you want in the world is just right outside your comfort zone. Everythingyoucouldpossiblywant!"
Oh no she didn’t. She just disrespected Carrie Bradshaw by attributing attributes to Carrie for which she herself is ironically the poster girl. SATC the movie may have been the sh-ts and the “man” for the MiniVan, but SATC the show, at least the HBO version of it, was the antithesis of what the public Jennifer Aniston is all about.
Besides… what the f-ck was Friends?
The second quote will hopefully, though not likely, put to rest once and for all what happened at the end.
"Well, it never was that bad," she says, knowing that it will be hard for a lot of people to believe. "I mean, look, it's not like divorce is something that you go, 'Oooh, I can't wait to get divorced!' It doesn't feel like a tickle. But I've got to tell you, it's so vague at this point, it's so faraway in my mind, I can't even remember the darkness. I mean, in the end, we really had an amicable split. It wasn't mean and hateful and all of this stuff that they tried to create about Brad can't talk to Jen and Jen can't talk to Brad because this person won't allow it. It just didn't happen. The marriage didn't work out. And pretty soon after we separated, we got on the phone and we had a long, long conversation with each other and said a lot of things, and ever since we've been unbelievably warm and respectful of each other. Whoever said everything has to be forever, that's setting your hopes too high. It's too much pressure. And I think if you put that pressure on yourself—because I did! Fairy tale! It has to be the right one!—that's unattainable."
As for the Angelina controversy…
What’s your take on Jen asking the journalist to turn off the tape recorder when asked about the Jolie, willing only to go on record about the “uncool” parts?
So the reporter is sitting down with her specifically for a cover interview for a widely read magazine. And there are things that she does not want made public. What’s the point in divulging it to him, confiding in him, if it’s not going anywhere anyway? Are they best friends now? I don’t get it.
Like I said, it’s a fascinating read especially when you look for the in between. Much more fascinating than any interview the Jolie has given recently, with all her Earth Mother boringness. Give us some porn!
