Jennifer Aniston - "Harper's Bazaar" November 2007

Jennifer Aniston -

Jennifer Aniston is featured in the November 2007 issue of Harper’s Bazaar! Pictured is the subscribers cover, newsstand cover pictured here.

She shares about possibly moving to New York City and wanting to be Oprah! Here are some highlights from the issue, which hits newsstands October 23:

On how she would like this story to begin: “I’m ba-ack.”

On her previous movie roles as a checkout chick in The Good Girl and a broke, pot-smoking maid in Friends with Money: “I like those roles. I feel comfortable with them. They’re more real. People can say, ‘Oh, I have relatives like that, I dated a guy like that, or I have a friend like that.’ They’re relatable.”

On what the public says about her: “I used to care a hell of a lot more about what people said or thought. But that had to change when my life was under a microscope being scrutinized and my personal life was being talked about. You have to go, ‘This is not acceptable in any way,’ whether it’s about me personally or in business, success versus failure. It’s so negative. It’s such bizarre negativity.”

On living a day as someone else: “I would love to be Oprah – for just one day.”

If she worked in the government: “I’d be a spy. A very glamorous spy who plays poker and lives in Monaco. And has affairs with Daniel Craig.”

On a possible move to New York: “I can actually visualize it again, for some reason. I don’t know, I’m just tired of Los Angeles. In New York, you’re not just in that same car, looking at that same dashboard, driving down the same street.”

On walking 40 blocks in New York and nobody noticing her: “If you can get away from the paparazzi and they don’t know where you are, you can actually walk, walk, walk.”

On critiques of her box-office performance: “I’ve read things that said I wasn’t successful at the box office or that my big hit was The Break-Up. But I said, ‘Wait a minute. There was Along Came Polly, which did really well, and Bruce Almighty was a pretty big movie.’ But they’ll single out Derailed or Rumor Has It, movies that didn’t do well, in order to support their agenda.”

On Friends: “I don’t think anybody thought Friends would become what it did. It’s all good, though. It’s nothing but blessings. But seriously, who actually dances in a fountain?”

    Yeah because in NY, they come with a completely different dashboard where no other cities have. She’s brilliant.
    If you stay there long enough, it will be the same street. Duhh

    Quotes From Brad:

    “The thing guiding me then was, you don’t know how many days you have, and you need life to be everything you need it to be.”

    “The most important thing about that time was for Jen and me to figure out if – how do I put it? – if we didn’t want to go on without any outside influence. Is this where we got off? Have we taken this as far as we wanted to go?”

    Quotes From Aniston:

    On critiques of her box-office performance:

    “I’ve read things that said I wasn’t successful at the box office or that my big hit was The Break-Up. But I said, ‘Wait a minute. There was Along Came Polly, which did really well, and Bruce Almighty was a pretty big movie.’ But they’ll single out Derailed or Rumor Has It, movies that didn’t do well, in order to support their agenda.”

    ———————-

    I now understand fully what Brad is talking about:

    Aniston’s fan like to harp the outside influence being Jolie. I beg to differ. The outside influence is Jennifer Carrer success or failure.

    How we taken this as far as we wanted to go?

    Brad wanted children, jen was still going after a successful career. It is right their plain as day. The marriage fell apart because Brad gave all he could. Jen wanted more than Brad could give her. By marrying him she became A list, she got parts. Brad wanted the family. That is why he called it a merger. It truly was. There were three peeps involved in that marriage Brad, Jen and her career.

  • jen

    154- Hmmm. Successful, beautiful on the inside and out. Yeah..I’d feel sorry for her too. By the way, those same low expectations are what got me through Law School and passing three Bar Exams. I guess you could get a dig in at me though for actually responding to this thread today. In all honesty, I just get sick of people ripping her apart. As a child of divorced parents, I know it’s not easy for either person involved. Thanks for the uplifting words though. Really.

  • Bobbie

    I can answer the who dances around in a fountain question. Gorgeous ANGELINA JOLIE after winning a Golden Globe Award. That’s who!

  • according to anustin

    don`t be mean to jen,she can play James bond`s girl,it is like you are watching Rachel which filmed in IRAQ.

  • eli

    Fake hair
    Fake tan
    Fake nose
    Fake Moviestar (Tvstar -yes- but no way Moviestar)
    Fake marriage (previously said she made BP wait 9 months before bedding her, now she says it was 2nd date, after divorce she can now get a comfy couch, nice lying to ur husband to keep him what else u not truthful about-FAKE!!!)

    FAKE FAKE FAKE (oh AND said she wanted kids after Friends, but signed on for 4 movies and could NOT give up smoking!!!)

  • thanks

  • miwanna

    The whole lot of you are sickening. You are always telling the Jen fans to get off the Brad/Angie threads then you come over here and say terrible things about Jennifer. I’ve never seen anything so immature in my life. The whole pack of you should be ashamed.

  • hello

    162- I don’t know how I would be a law student and pass the Bar in three states. However, as far as being naive…if liking Jennifer Aniston makes me naive, I guess so. Is that what you meant or were you trying to be facetious?

    Jennifer Aniston is great! I love her and think she is a wonderful actress! She is always so happy and seems to shine from the inside out! I also think she has a great sense of humor!

  • eli

    HEY MANISTON!!!!

  • coco

    She is a typecast actress at best..romantic comedies that is…she is NOT a versatile actress. She does sound a bit defensive and arrogant in the interview..not to mention not articulate at all–but thats not news either. At least she’s got her two dogs, her yoga, her friends, her money..and she is cute…not beautiful or talented or intelligent.

  • fyi

    #166 i mean are you a practicing lawyer or just a lover of law a student of the subject….the whole i feel sorry for her because she is from a broken home is soo blah, blah, blah….numerous individuals are from such family backgrounds…everyone is entitled to their opinion but really spare us with the pity-party type for jenn a.

  • heheh

    Yeah! There is actually a moment without the haters…they all went to the Angelina Jolie post! We are good for another 10 hours while they converse now! :)

  • Who gives a rats?

    ROTFLMAO!!!! Love it!!!!

  • miwanna

    I feel sorry for her. It takes two to break up a marriage, it is never just one person’s responsibility. Either way, it’s hard enough to get divorced but to have the whole world watching you AND judging you? A nightmare. I believe Jennifer loved him, her eyes were always shining when she looked at him. Now she has lost him and has to see him with a gorgeous woman, new kids every year and them looking so in love and happy every minute. It’s enough to rip your heart out and she has to see it in the press every single day.

    And if she did lose her marriage over career hopes she’s probably doomed to disappointment there too. It doesn’t look like she can make it on the big screen. Yep, I feel sorry for her and don’t think she deserves to get ripped up all the time.

    I hope she never reads these blogs because you people are vicious. What has she ever done to you? Even Brad doesn’t say a bad thing about her. Why don’t you take a page out of your idol’s book?

  • hahoo

    176 – let’s see your picture.

  • jenisbeautiful

    She’s beautiful! I love that picture! As far as her interview, I can’t wait to read the whole thing! I love her sense of humor and think she is just a wonderful woman! Way to go Jen!

  • hello

    174- practice. Gotta go now; however, I understand that people can get sick of the pity thing. I just happen to like Jennifer and Angelina. We can agree to disagree.

  • Jenjenjenjen

    love her! Beautiful, wise, caring, loyal and successful! She is such an ideal for so many women! What a great picture! Can’t wait to buy the magazine! I’m sure many others feel the same way!

  • iagree

    178- I agree with you! BUT, I do think she could be a great movie star…look at so many other actresses out there! I wish people would just quit saying all of those mean and vicious things about her!

  • eli

    I cant get over the NERVE of this woman:

    ” “I’ve read things that said I wasn’t successful … and Bruce Almighty was a pretty big movie”

    OK and thats like Vivica A. Fox saying “Independence DAy” was successful because she was in it. OMG PLSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

    Theres a reason WHY u have to say “I’m ba-ack.”
    WE WANTED U GONE!!!!!!!! WE DIDNT WANT TO SEE U ANYMORE AND WE DONT WANT TO NOW!!!

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com/2007/03/19/angelina-jolie-carrying-pax-thien-jolie/comment-page-3/#comments jane

    Reality check! You guys are calling Jennifer a publicity slut when she hasn’t given an interview in how many months?

  • Lilo

    LOL @ gag me now.

  • fyi

    again, why is she on the cover of hb? i would much rather see cate blanchett instead…someone with a movie out even!

    her publicist probably arranged this cover just like the gladd awards

  • fyi

    lol #184

  • poor thing

    blah blah blah blah blah blah blah……

  • becausewelikeher

    Maybe because most of us aren’t obsessed with Angelina Jolie and actually LIKE Jennifer Aniston. Maybe we don’t think that there is an ulterior motive to every sentence she says and actually believe that when she chooses NOT to talk about Brad, it’s not because she wants people to feel sorry for her. Maybe we actually think she’s a good actress and a beautiful person. Aren’t you supposed to be on the other thread about now?

  • ang

    185 jane

    sorry but why she should do interview when there is no movie to promote.even if it goes over 2 years.That`s what other normal actress are doing,when you have movie,you will do some interview for it.but she did interview to say to people how she is doing now?hahahaha that`s why she is attention *****.

  • citi

    Jen said, “….“I would love to be Oprah – for just one day.”

    Well, Oprah contributed a lot of money to the kids in Africa.

    With all your 110M networth, what have you done to the poor?

    Jen, why havent you learned from her?

    With all your 110M, all we hear is that you tanned, get your nose job, boob job, a 3rd wheeler to the Cox, buying a GLADD award, and also, using CAA and Huvane to buy you a Forbes list.

    Dont tell me she contributes quietly. Everything celebrities do is being talked by the media. Nothing was ever mentioned on her charitable work except her “wearing a St John T shirt”.

    Jen doesnt give back, period !!!

  • jenisthebomb

    love you jen! love the picture! can’t wait to see her upcoming movies! totally agree with wanting to get out of hollywood at times!

  • fyi

    i bet that courtney and her family are happier than others that she’s bacck so that they can get a break

  • miwanna

    Why would this comment need moderation?

    All I said was that Angie jumped into a swimming pool in her party dress, not a fountain?

  • weknowwhothehois

    Don’t be bitter because she is note a wh*re like someone else. Can you say blood vial?

  • fyi

    #181 i seriously doubt that a practicing lawyer has time to be on this blog…but i will let you proceed…just my intuition

  • stuck

    Beautiful and kind.

  • britney wrong

    “In New York, you’re not just in that same car, looking at that same dashboard, driving down the same street.”
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    What a shallow, stupid woman. Jennifer, life doesn’t get interesting by itself. You have to make the effort. Stop driving to the same old gym and the same old hairdresser and the same old friends’ homes and do something for someone else for a change. No wonder you sat around waiting for life to happen to you when Brad went out and made a life for himself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kim

    I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVES JENNIFER ANISTON

  • Seriously

    No wonder Brad dumped her.

  • britneyright

    Yeah. Some life. Getting Angelina “celibate” Jolie knocked up. I’m surprised she rememberd that that baby was Brad’s and not one of the “lovers” that she meets in hotels to satisfy that “need”

    LOVE JEN!

  • BEAUTIFUL

    LOVE JEN! BY THE WAY, SHE FILED DIVORCE PAPERS. GET IT RIGHT, EINSTEIN! ALSO, SHE IS SOOOO MUCH BETTER OFF WITHOUT HIM! HIS MOVIES ARE FLOPS NOW! HAH. HAH.

  • silly

    Michelle Pfeiffer should have said I’m Back. Not Jennifer.

    She is really shallow and self absorbed.
