The Subtle Famewhore
On a weekend when Angelina Jolie’s Wanted exceeded opening expectations without even walking a carpet to promote the film, Jennifer Aniston tried to counter with a famewhore tactic of her own.
As you know, John Mayer played several stops in London and Jen flew out to join him last week. She was observed at both his shows watching in the wings but not photographed. Naturally, People.com had all the details including what she wore, what she did, and even how she travelled. What’s laughable however is that even though they were able to track her every move, the MiniVan Majority’s favourite publication still went out of its way to insist that Jen moved with the stealth of Jason Bourne:
Slipping unnoticed into the musician"s backstage area at the Hard Rock Calling festival in London"s Hyde Park, Aniston stood quietly in the wings while the singer ran through a 45-minute set in front of an audience of ten of thousands.
But the actress wasn"t just there to lend moral support: wearing a black-and-white floral halter-neck top and faded flared jeans, Aniston busily snapped away with her camera to record Mayer"s on-stage performance.
It was the second time in two days that Aniston had joined Mayer for one of his gigs. On Friday, she took a seat in the upper level of the gritty south London venue, the Brixton Academy, before leaving with Mayer at around 11:30 p.m.
Earlier this week, the couple united in Amsterdam, where she was promoting the upcoming Marley and Me (with Owen Wilson) and Mayer was performing.
In keeping with the low-key theme of her London visit, she never once ventured into the Hard Rock VIP area and quietly left the show without anyone noticing.
Even the paparazzi camped outside her London hotel were left guessing.
Mayer later appeared on stage at the end of the show alongside headliner Eric Clapton and Aniston"s close friend Sheryl Crow. But, again, Aniston was absent.
She then flew back to LA as paps clamoured to capture these images upon her return.
But she totally hates the attention, right?
