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?”

    she has no choice but to play the ditzy, brainless, regular jill when she is minus an acting range

    in between her yoga sessions, visits to her bff hair stylist, and walking along the beach…she’s just everyday people the characters that she loves to play for that reason…yeah and i have an island in new york to sell you

    that was the very first time brad had responded to any questioning about his ex, and he more than anyone else had the right to do so. it was his marriage, his divorce. this woman, on the other hand, constantly commented on her divorce in 2005, in magazines, and televion interviews, and whereas brad was kind in his comments, she was far from. she was snide, dishonest, and just plain unpleasant. i have always said, everyone has a conscience,i wonder how she sleeps at night?

  • fyi

    shallow, self-absorbed, arrogant…and for NO REASON…

    she was 1/10 of a hit tv show: not even her own show
    her block-busters movies: the male leads carried the movies
    she was married to brad pitt: he was on drugs and on the re-bound
    she is the #1 selling cover: because people felt sorry for rachel green/ they can’t separate the two and neither can she

    try some humility and go to acting classes!!!

    Jen Gives Us a Good Snooze
    Categories: magazine cover
    Good, bad, ugly, boring, artistic, racy—we can never get enough of analyzing magazine covers. Unfortunately, Jennifer Aniston’s latest cover and accompanying profile for Harper’s Bazaar happens to fall into the snooze category.

    The cover looks could just as easily be another ad for her Smartwater, and the article is anything but revealing. We learn that Jen is over L..A, hates paparazzi following her around, was surprised by Friends’ success and loves playing the “better-looking-than-most everygirl.”

    Shocking!

    Things do get momentarily interesting in the article’s random questions section, when Jen admits she wouldn’t mind being a dirty-martini-drinking spy named Oprah who doesn’t speak in public and dines with Princess Diana before ravishing Daniel Craig nightly.

    But then it’s right back to talk of redecorating and possibly moving to NYC.

    Yawn!

    If you do want to know more about Jen, you’re better off picking up Star mag, where her bikini waxer dishes, “She’s neurotic about bikini waxes.” (Though it looks like somebody isn’t gonna get any repeat business…)

    Jen is inspiring? What exactly does she inspire you to do? Blow dry your hair? Lay on the beach morning? Lay on your yoga mat all afternoon? Tag along after your closest friends like a third wheel in their marriage?

    The above sums up the total of her interests and her daily activities. If your level of expectation for yourself is so low that this is what “inspires” you, you have some serious problems.

    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.
    *************************************************

    Well honey, why don’t you mosey on over to the JP threads some time and read how Jenzilla’s fans not only say terrible things about Brad and Angie, but also about their children. What kind of sick-ass freak of nature would trash an innocent child? You tell me.

    I do think she could be a great movie star…look at so many other actresses out there!
    ***************************************

    Those other actresses out there have something Aniston is lacking in; i.e., talent. They also have a screen presence she doesn’t have. She may be good for sitcoms, but her range is so limited that sitcoms are about all she can act in, and she is rapidly reaching the age where those kind of roles will be denied her.

    Cate Blanchett, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry and Nicole Kidman she ain’t.

    **************************************

    Indeed they don’t, and your point is well taken. I just wanted to show you where a lot of the anti-Jen animus is coming from. I’ve seen some nasty posts on both sides, but nothing to equal the hate and spite coming from the Aniston fans who called Maddox and Pax “mud children”, hoped Z would expire from AIDS, and wished Shiloh would be born ugly, retarded or dead. It takes a special kind of subhuman mentality to say something like that, don’t you think?

  • Goddess

    Again with the major airbrushing to create fantasy Jen. I can’t believe how egotistical she has become, she was responsible for the failure of Derailed and RHI and she was a bit player in BA and weak ,at best. in ACP. The cutesy message to Daniel Craig is nauseating, must be he is her next “get”…got that Huvane?

    She really has turned me off with her arrogance and I am looking forward to the day that she disappears for good. A major UGH!!!

  • hi Jill

    Cate Blanchette, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry, and Nicole Kidman obviously lack that SOMETHING Jennifer Aniston has got. She is the top selling covergirl after all. Whatever she is selling, public is very much willing to buy.

  • nova

    Jennifer Aniston looks beautiful on the magazine cover. She is very popular with a lot of people,just like Angelina Jolie is, so drop all the negativity.

  • dianad1968

    she would love to be oprah for a day, because she is just as narcissistic as oprah. could her nose be ANY further up oprah’s arse?

    i swear i look at this woman’s pictures from all angles, i squint, at the pictures and try to be as objective as i possibly can, and i still dont see what her fans call stunning and beautiful.she is hanging on by her fingernails though. they will have to take her kicking and screaming off the C list. you know what they say “PRIDE COMES BEFORE A FALL”.

  • Prada

    Why does she have to make such inciting statements such as ” she is doing fine after the divorce” someone can think that she had cancer and has been undergoing chemotherapy. Its was just a divorce and since then she has had like 3 men that we know of.

    This victim mentality is what upsets me about Jennifer Aniston. How come Reese whose divorce just became final and has 2 kids and is much younger than Aniston, doesnt talk about Ryan at all andd how she is doing fine after the divorce? No one thinks that Reese is a victim and she doesnt encourage it. Brad comes out to squash the tringle by saying that they share a deep friendship and she surfaces with yet another dumb interview talking about how she is doing fine. Which means she was a wronged and wounded party who is struggling to get by.
    Jen need to stop with her am doing fine after Brad Pitt talk everytime she is on a mag. When will she let go off him and let him live his life without her dragging her pitty in connection to his name. She fuels the tabloid rumors no wonder forbes awarded her the title of QUEEN OF THE TABLOIDS

  • JEN-BOX OFFICE POISON

    So, who did Jen pay to make sure she got this cover .

    Please this woman is box office poison and from what I read all of her movies flopped.

    Everyone is sick to death of her and wish she would permanently disappear . We (majority of public with morals, taste and intelligence) think she is a disgrace and a joke and a liar and we have no desire to spend any more of our hard earned dollars on her.

    BOX OFFICE POISON–Jen

    **************************************************

    LOL, she won the title of Trash Tabloid Queen! What a prize! If you think Blanchett, Zeta-Jones, Berry or Kidman feel a shred of envy for Aniston, you’re deluding yourself. These women are class acts any way you slice it. Aniston is a pathetic loser whose only claim to recognition is that she was once married to the hottest guy on the planet and she lost him through her own ambition and stupidity. A sorry accomplishment indeed.

    Okay, I promised myself I wouldn’t post on this thread but what the heck, some promises are meant to be broken…..

    The truth is, magazine Covers like
    The Unsinkable Jennifer Aniston
    Jennifer Aniston – A Profile in Courage
    Jen Finally Talks – How she is coping with life After Brad.
    Jennifer Aniston – GQ “Man” of the year because of how she handled her divorce.
    …..are the reasons some women (women who are worth their salts as women) don’t admire Jennnifer Aniston. A profile in courage? Now….honestly, what sense does that even make, she’s not the first woman to get divorced and she won’t be the last. She didn’t have take care of her children while working 2-3 odd jobs. So what profile in courage?

    I remember the magazine came out the same time Christopher Reeves’ wife found out she had cancer….and this it was not long after she buried her husband (whom she took great care of after the accident that left him in a wheel chair). I heard her speak and saw how peaceful she was, she said her only focus was preparing her son for her death. She was sad that he’d lose his parents so close to each other but she thought making her last days with him memorable might ease his pain a little. Now THAT is a profile in courage, not a 30 something milloinaire going through a divorce. This was also the period Jerri Neilson, who was stranded in Antarctica, had to perform a biopsy on herself when she found a lump in her breast….yet she wasn’t given a profile in courage, nope it was given to an actress who got divorced.

    Seriously, how is she not embarrassed by the attention she gets over a divorce? Is she ever offended when people ask her “So how are you doing?” like she lost her parents, her children and her husband in one day (and I actually know someone that has happned to…is she carrying herself like a victim? NO) I wonder if she ever gets angry that people think so little of her, they believe she can’t survive something women younger than her, women with less money and more children and debts, have survived. How does she feel when people treat her like a child? How did she not have a problem receiving awards for surviving what thousands of women have gone through and 10 thousand more will go through. Goodness!

    I guess in the end, all of these only goes to show what a wonderful catch everyone one KNOWS Brad Pitt is. Think about it, a woman is profiled for her courage because he left her. She is deemed unsinkable because she survived a break up (well barely survived it…..since almost 3yrs after the fact, she’s still being asked how she is coping) from him. She is awarded the honorable title “Man of the year” because she made it through a divorce from him. Oh my…what a man, what a man, what a mighty fine man Brad Pitt is.
    And that’s it for me on this thread.

    PS
    And this latest “how she is coping” swan song….is it for the break up from Vince Vaughn or the Paul guy? Coz surely it can’t be for her divorce of almost 3yrs

  • to 241 prada

    STFU ,you’re talking sh*t as usual. You don’t like her , we get it, now leave. Go back to your AJ thread and play with yourself while you think of how wonderful she is. Go get yourself a life and stop idolizing people you’ll never know. You are probably some low life that has no friends and yet feels they are an authority on how jen aniston should lead her life.

  • ?

    The first things she needs is to grow up,hey jen !!!you will be 39 in afew month,you need to grow up.

    Why the interviewer didn`t ask her,why VV and Paul left her?
    Oh C`mon even If her husband died,she would forget him by now.it is obvious she is using his name to sell this magazine and keep herself in news.

    I hope young hollywood stars don`t listen to her,I think at first they should try to start their family as soon as possible and then consider their career and their job,If they put their career first we will see more people like Britney,Paris and LiLo.

    actually this interview is not good for her,she shows that the things she said in her other interview that she was the person who wanted to start family and brad didn`t want is a big lie,and she is one big liar here.

    I hope Jen grow up as soon as possible before it will be too late for her to start her own family,HW is not so nice with the woman over 40,and after that times the only things that will remain for these women is their family.

  • jaxon

    I guess the world keeps feeling sorry for her because they recognize that getting dumped by Brad Pitt is a pretty life shattering event.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Totally agree!

  • sigh

    This is the link which has a pic of Brad in Africa surrounded by African boys. You Jen fans were always bragging that Jen looked so good on the red carpet with Brad, and blah, blah, blah….

    http://www.oprah.com/tows/slide/200412/20041223/slide_20041223_104.jhtml

    Now, look at the picture, why ISNT Jen in the pic? Jen will accompany Brad to all the red carpet, BUT she is too stuck up to visit Africa with her then husband?

    Dont tell me she is afraid of flying. When I saw this pic, I’m so disappointed at your Jen, that’s why Lainey had this saying about your Jen:–
    Jennifer Aniston
    The Queen of all Frauds, definitely NOT the girl next door unless you live in a $7 million mansion with another $10 million in upgrades, or unless you deal in “happy”, there is no way in hell The Ex is gonna get Friend-ly with you.

    Just in case you dont know, Tate Donovan (Jen’s ex before Brad) had this saying about Jen, per imdb.com, from Tate’s personal quote.
    Tate’s quote from imdb.com —-(On his former love, Jennifer Aniston) “She likes top-notch hotels and luxury, and I like bed and breakfasts and riding my bike. That’s the most shallow version of it, but it’s indicative of our personalities

  • sisa

    self imposed 2 years hiatus, my ass….Just admit it, Jennifer Aniston , you can’t get work for the last two+ years….and the best that has happened for your career is this impending strike. It left a lot of roles open for you….

    You’re going back to what’s comfortable and safe for Jennifer Aniston…chick flick, rom-coms that you said you’ll never go back to.
    Why don’t you just give up on Senator’s Wife, Gambit and Wanted….you can’t get the script finalyzed, you can’t get a studio to greenlit you’re movies, you have a caliber actress who might just be bait for the studio to fast tracked things…..but she’s backed out because she’s busy doing movies that have studio backing….

  • don’t understand

    I don’t think that Aniston is bringing up the past or having another pity party in this latest interview. Why so much hatred towards her now everybody?

  • credit: think positive

    LMAO!!! Where is this sh*t going to end for Christ sake!!!! It’s been almost three years!! How many times will she say the same effin thing??? The dozens of interviews she gave in 2005-6 weren’t enough?? Geeze.
    The most pathetic thing of all is that her next movie is coming out next year and right now she has NOTHING to promote. She did this interview just for the sake of being interviewed and inform the world how America’s sweetheart is still coping with her life.

    This is so ridiculous. I want to learn how the people in Darfur are coping with their lives. Not an almost 40 year old grown ass woman with her $110 mill in the bank who did a great effort to destroy her own marriage playing the victim.

    That’s the difference. Brad and Angie are ONLY giving interview when they have to promote a movie or a humanitarian project like any other actor. And they are mostly talking about their movies and projects.
    While she gave a whole ass interview from the middle of nowhere to talk about her life!!

    Where is the outrage??? I thought her fans said that she wants to live privately.LOL!!

    This woman will never stand up on her own. If it wasn’t for this divorce nobody would remember her name by now.

  • yes

    She soooooooooooooooooooo hated because everybody blames her for Angelina backlash. I do get it now! IT IS ALL JENNIFER’S FAULT Y’ALL.

  • 247 jaxon

    jaxon you are a damn hypocrite! go back to your cult on the aj thread. I’ve seen your name plenty of times and you are always talkin’ sh*t to the JA fans on AJ’s thread BUT yet here you are hanging out where you’re not wanted. You must really have nothing to do. I can jump on a thread and breeze through the comments & see your name 20 times… I will assume you have no husband/wife, no kids, no friends, a dead end job and no hobbies to keep you occupied 12 hours out of the day! don’t you dare speak ill of JA – even with her divorce you still wish you had a life even half as good as hers and jolie!You are pathetic and jealous.

  • chloe

    This cover should win photo-shop of the year!!!

    she is the dumbest woman.IF she’s in Government
    she wants to be a spy ?
    What about helping starving people or AIDS, or giving
    healthcare to all…wtf??? shallow idiot.
    playing poker in Monaco? she’s too dumb to even play blackjack!

    I wish she wouldn’t come back.

  • yeahright

    What Angelina backlash? LMAO . A funny thing has happened there was a backlash I would say up until Shiloh’ s birth. However, things have changed. When you have Elizabet H on the view praising Angie you know the tide has turned. They use to bash both Brad and Angie. Angie and Brad can’t walk down a New York street without a crowd of well wishes. People have come to love this couple and their family. Sure as I stated earlier they took a hit. Aniston has taken a bigger hit and she is the one showing her true self. I don’t know how Brad stayed with such a woman, who main mission in life is her selfish self. Count the # if “I” in her interview and you will be amazed. All she now has left to talk about is her career,when that ends what will she talk about. I know it it unhealthy to dislike a celeb i have never met. I don’t dislike her personally I dislike the image she portrays and I use to be a fan. I wish for once should would be honest.
