Jennifer Aniston Covers NY Times Magazine

Jennifer Aniston opens up about her TV and movie career in this weekend’s New York Times Magazine. Here are some highlights via Us Weekly:

On her new movie’s title: “I wish it was She’s Just Not That Into. Unfortunately, it’s He’s Just Not That Into You. The other would be more empowering.”

On finding success after Friends ended in 2004: “I thought I’d never get movies.”

On landing her role of spoiled Rachel Green: “[It was] the first time I felt like part of the cool kids.”

On watching Friends re-runs on TV: “There are times I don’t even remember that particular show. This is horrible to say, but there are times when I laugh my rear end off. And I get in debates with people who are over and say, Friends is not my thing.’ Excuse you!”

On if Friends would be a hit today: “Hard to tell – that was a different time. Now TV has too much to do with celebrity. We have reality television, where people try to become celebrities….”

Aniston‘s next comedy, Marley & Me, costarring Owen Wilson opens on Christmas Day.

    The NY Times has jumped the shark with her on the cover.

    And the Times used to be respectable.

    OMG I Love this women


    Her face looks mashed.

  • an

    my favorite tv show of all time

  • karma is a btch!

    OMFG! What is she trying to do with her face? Look sexy?! BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • Yeah

    I looooove her!!!

  • bP

    Beautiful, talented, friendly, honest, funny, clever and sweet. Love my girl Jen.

  • Insider

    talk about CGI…what did Lisa Rinna let her borrow her fake lips. As usual, hair obscuring ugly mug, face contorted to lessen the homely – typical Maniston tricks. I guess she was so horrified by that tranny looking Vogue cover, Huvane her powerful PR flack got on the phone and begged for this one.

    Reading that excerpt, what warrants that cover? her low ratings on Oprah, her low ratings for 30 rock, and the critical pans she got??


    Her dog movie isn’t out til x-mas, and that other movie isn’t out til almost spring. It’s really weird, she’s like doing film press, for a movie that’s nowhere near coming out and her other movies have all been pushed back (cuz they suck) or they remain undistributed.

    Her PR firm CAA and Stephen Huvane really do earn their 15% of her millions.

  • Ana

    STUNNING, she is just a gorgeous woman, end of!


    What a homely UGLY stupid b*tch. The NYT has to resort to creating a cartoon just to make her halfway presntable? lolol Why is she trashing her own movies? dumb b*tc h. lol

  • guli

    OMG–no wonder everyone calls her MANISTON!!! Geez..that woman really looks like a MAN…yikes!!! Ohh how old is this WOMAN, 40 right??? So why is she talking like a freakin teenager ‘cool’/'uncool’ When is this twit going to grow up and get a life…and it won’t be in the movies..that ship sailed after Brad dumped the talentless sitcom TV hack :-)


    empowering ? … Now who is she trying to kid? !
    She loves playing weak.


    Not even tens of thousands of plastic surgery can fix that ugly mug. nor can hair obscuring, face contorting, photoshopping – the FUG is still there. VERDICT: TRANNY with big nose, beady eyes, and NO LIPS.

  • sari

    Lip enhancement alert. LOL

  • andrea

    what happen to her lips? Less is always more.


    Weak and whiny Maniston. Can her homely face just disappear. What is she even promoting? I don’t get it.

  • nic b.

    She does a great imitation of Mr. Ed the TV horse. Looks just like him when he puckered up to Mr. Greenjeans, his caretaker. Brings back memories. I wonder if she has a horse bloodline in her family.

  • not interesting

    What’s up with the stealing of another’s actress (I there not to name) poises????? Can she not come up with a good one for herself or is she turning into the “Single White Female”.

  • Wait

    She looks like a tranny.

  • Janelle

    I’m, a fan of Angie’s but I I think Jen’s pretty. But what’s up with her lips and face? Too much photoshop.

  • Rayan

    I think jennifer is pretty but that picture is not flattering at all…

  • tessla

    Looks like she has pink eye. Her eye looks distorted not sexy for sure. I would, looking at her take her to the ER immediately.

    This woman is NOT even CLOSE to being pretty. She is very mannish to me. She is also not in the least bit interesting. What does she even do besides make crap movies and bombard us with her insufferable whining. She actually depresses me. I sense she is just a big neurotic mess, except more BORING than most neurotics. Oh and the people saying she’s attractive, they HAVE to be other women who look just like her, i.e., UGLY TOO.

  • NYT Subscriber

    Thanks NYT..I’ve been waiting for an excuse to cancel my NYT subscription. Thanks for pushing me over the edge with this banal cover of this no-talent whining actress.

  • Georgia

    She can’t act her way out of a paper bag!!!!! Waste of money on her movies!!

  • NEW LIPS??

    Wow. Ugly woman. But where’d she get those lips? Looks like they plastered Jolie’s lips on a photoshop of her. LOL

    funny when everyone knows she has no lips to speak of.

  • Passive Aggressive Jen

    So jen never thought she’d ‘get movies,’ after Friends ended?

    That’s odd. Hadn’t she signed on for up to 4 movies the year Friends ended. hadn’t she done movies all along while on Friends.

    I would agree though, she has every reason to lack confidence in herself, she sucks as an actress.

  • tess

    Sorry, you cannot pull of f the Angie Jolie look stupid get your own look you can never imitate a real beauty, you are just plain jane and ugly to boot. Sorry, the plastic surgeries haven’t worked yet, keep trying who knows you may beat Michael Jackson at his own game. Why would anyone want you trying to look sexy on a cover I would cancel my subscription immediately to this magazine for allowing this horrible looking woman to be on its cover.

  • NOT!!

    Jennifer Aniston and sexy not go together at all!

    The gig is up Jennifer, give it up! You will never be a sex kitten, it’s just not that into you, sorry.

  • bridget

    Pucker up I’m sure you paid a pretty price for those ugly inflated lips. Pleae put her picture on Horse Monthly instead.

  • Jen. Whiniston


  • candy

    Jen’s perfect!!!!
    Chin? nice.
    Nose ? NIiiiice.
    Lips? niiiiiice

  • sue

    she’s mocking Jolie’s fish lips!!!!!!HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA …Go girl

  • Wait

    She is the one that begged peeboy to come back to her now she is trying to be all about empowering women. LOL.

  • bridget

    I think she’s imitating what a horse would like puckering up, definitely not Angie whose lips are natural and beautiful not horse-like.

  • Spicylily THAILAND

    What un ugly horrible magazine cover !!!!!!!!

    Is she trying to look sexy or scary or what ?

    Oh ! she also got the lip ! Wow !!
    Is it COOL, isn’t it ?

    It’s just a part of a show business.

    Money speaks louder than anything.

  • sue

    this woman is gorgeous…look at her beautiful hair. She doesn’t look forty, petit and feminine, unlike someone else in her morticia adams stage that i can honestly say looks older than Jennifer. You know the one i’m talking about. The one and only Trangelina, Manjawlina, Manjelina Holina smackelina. Take your pick.

  • sand

    I think she’s obsessed with Angie and wants to pose like her but too bad she is so ugly even if she was making fun of her it makes her look so ugly and stupid. She should be on the cover of MAD magazine if it was still in circulation.

  • Not impressed by JA

    Maniston can get away with the picture because of Photoshop and plastic enhancement !

    Too bad, she can’t fake intellect and maturity ! her answers are dumb, fraudulent, and immature ! She’s a real bimbo with flip flopping tendencies and definitely schizophrenic !!

  • LuckyL


  • Ana

    I loved Friends!!! It was a brilliant show! Never gets old. Thank God for re-runs!

    [I'm not Ana @ 11/19/2008 at 3:33 pm #9, but I'll agree that Jennifer is a beautiful woman and looks great on this picture.]

  • sonia

    seriously, i can’t stand this TV hack, i will not log on any more until this fame wh ore is out of the spot light, she is making me sick for real. please go away, poor brad, his mistake with this low rent fug is lasting a life time, she is a thorn in his side. her and her stupid fans, she can’t act, yet she rides their coat tail,stop associating her with brad and Angie. you bed hopping,lying,phony.

  • oh my

    This woman is nuts trying to copy Angelina Jolie,Now the Lips,My Gawd LOL She is such a Beotch.

  • Not impressed by JA

    “On her new movie’s title: “I wish it was She’s Just Not That Into. Unfortunately, it’s He’s Just Not That Into You. The other would be more empowering.”
    That statement says it all.

    She was rightfully casted to be in ‘HE IS NOT THAT INTO YOU’ because, till this day, she lived that motto to the fullest as she whines and whines….

    When you go out with some playa who sh*ts and pees on women and brags about it, you are insane. When you did it a second time around after he publicly humiliate you, saying he doesn’t care about you, you are below trash, selfrespectless.

    No sympathy for your likes who likes their man treating them like dirt !

    She wouldn’t be credible to portray a woman who’s in control and who has enough integrity and self esteem to not go out with a dog, let alone begged him to take her back !

    EMPOWERMENT and ANISTON doesn’t belong to the same sentence. DESPERATE, WEAK and SHAMLESSNESS no doubt about it !

  • Suzz

    She looks a dab scary …
