Jennifer Aniston: John Mayer is Extraordinary

Jennifer Aniston: John Mayer is Extraordinary

Jennifer Aniston opens up about her boyfriend, musician John Mayer, to UK’s The Mirror. Interview highlights:

On the way John thinks: “He’s a rare one. He is extraordinary and it is wonderful to watch him… the way his brain works and the way he thinks thoughts… it’s beautiful.”

On having a thing for the musically inclined: “It’s an amazing thing to watch a musician think. I don’t know many musicians but when his guitar is on him it’s just like a channel. It’s something I’ve never ever seen before.”

On not understanding the continued public interest in her break-up with Brad Pitt: “I’m baffled by it and it makes no sense to me…. Everybody goes through tough times… You’ve just got to figure out how to get through them… It’s my history and my memory. I used to really take things personally. It took me some time to figure this out but if you can be truthful and honest with who you are, then you have a much easier time walking through life.”

On her finances: “I don’t wake up in the morning, stretch my arms and say, ‘Oh, I’m wealthy.’ I just know I’m extremely fortunate and I have the good fortune to take care of my family, to give to causes that matter to me and to contribute in ways not everybody can. I’ve never been someone to have money as my goal. I just wanted to work.”

On having her own kids some day: “I feel it’s in my future and I’m on the verge of it in some way, so it was great to dip the toe in [for Marley & Me]. I want to have children. That’s my plan.”

    What a pathetic pathetic person.

    ——— CAUSE SHE DIDNT MEAN THAT SHE WONT BE TALKING ABOUT HER PERSONAL LIFE.

    SHE DIDNT UNDERSTAND THE FUSS AND WHY PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY MAKE THINGS UP ABOUT HER AND HER PERSONAL LIFE THATS JUST NOT TRUE.

    LIKE YOU ARE DOING NOW.

    OOH BUT WAIT… ONLY BRAD AND ANGIE CAN TALK ABOUT THEIR PERSONAL LIFE?

  • kelly

    she was reffering to how people speculate about her being pregnant.
    and thats no ones business.

    She has to say compliments because they are not together…….they are pretending like they are but they are really “friends”. ………. …that is why she never uses “love”. They will NEVER be married, NEVER have kids….. he is a CAA paid fake and she is a master of platitude and empty compliment. They fake it in restaurants so people will talk for publicity articles. Remember how she gave Vince all those compliments after they were over (again another fake relationship)???? SAME THING. Jen is going to marry someone else. It is already in the works and has been in the works since before VV. Mayer is an attention loving smug fake who is currently copying the appearance of the person she will marry. Wait and see. CAA did this charade because the Academy didnt want to make the other guy director, because the powerful people he worked for didnt want him making the same salary as them and marrying Jennifer. THEY ARE JEALOUS OF HIM SO THEY OPPRESSED HIM. Only a few people know this, and none of them can talk. Only me. They dont sleep together and never have and never will. IT IS ALL A HUGE UNEMOTIONAL ACT FOR AUDIENCES UNTIL SHE MARRIES SOMEONE ELSE. Wait and see…….I am right……………..

  • VICTORIA

    Number # 7 ( anon ).. I knew I had read some of those words before…..She has said basically the same thing about ALL of her men coming through her turnstile…..They were ALL ” magical ” , ( UGH ), and ” smart “, and she was ” mesmerized by their smartness ” ( stupid )………..Jennifer’s plan to ” dip her toes “, into motherhood, is running out….Her age is creeping up on her….
    Courtney Cox, ( UGH ), her so called BFF, said she could NOT imagine Jen settling down with a man OR children…BUT, she ” made a wonderful God-mother to CoCo”…….

  • aiden

    There she is with her PR lies. She lies all the time, esp. to her fans. This woman is not going to have children she just tells the reporter what he wants to hear, she has no intention. Her plastic surgery, superficial, narcisstic personality will always be there and there is no room for children, whom she considers could mess up her body, and there never will be. So, Jen, quit with your lies, you know you love the PR and without the Pitts in the equation you are and will always be….NOBODY.

    happiness for it and in the future kids.

    >>>>>>>>>>can you at least tell us when to expect the real guy to be revealed and if he is a more stand up guy than John Mayer? Because I refuse to believe she would actually stoop as low as John Mayer.

  • Rayt

    You people need to get over Jen. All this hate, but why? Get over it!

    I’m not even a fan of her but c’mon.

  • bet

    love is in the air. the way complement her man. she is mesmerize by him. she loves him. i think there is posiblity of future. she appriate his work. she is loving every minuet of it, i think.

  • joy

    She is answering questions she is being asked you psychopaths! I’m sure every one of you knows all the personal details about her past, present, and future. You people are delusional and Courtney never said that!! If you think she did provide a reliable source? Oh yea, you can’t! Go back to your idols posts and spread your delusions about your “messiah” there, toady. And in case you want to try and call me an idiot because you don’t understand a vocabulary above junior high I will explain what a toady is: it is a self-serving person who behaves in a servile sycophantic manner, fawning on and flattering people with power or influence. It is pathetic to worship someone that much! I find the celebrities I like entertaining and I respect their charities, but they are not God-like in my eyes, as they seem to be to a few of you. Good luck to you

    soo much hate for a person who hasn’t gotten into car crash, ran around town doing drugs, broke up other people’s marriages (with kids) or done anything remotely controversial – she gets wayy too much hate. All i know, is that ppl she has worked with like her and have said nothing but nice things about her. she is well loved. and that speaks volumes about the kind of person she is.

    So I’d rather listen to what she has said in interviews, and to ppl who have met her and WORKED with her first-hand have to say, rather than the crazies on this site who think it’s perfectly fine to spew such insubstantiated crap about a person they barely know.
    The girl said she was sick of all the SPECULATION abt her personal life, and that every move she makes is vetted and judged – we don’t have business to judge it to the degree she gets it. she’s is one of the few celebs in recent history that has had THIS much attn on her personal life. she has done a good job of handling the pressure. and if she wants to vent – go ahead. i think her previous approach of having reigning in control on her life (she said it herself) has done her no favours. I’m glad she’s loosening up a bit.
    Btw – ALL celebs say their sick of the attention on her personal life, but still talk about it. I think they’re sick of the judgement and incessant speculation that goes on and all the crap that’s made up.

  • MJ

    I don’t understand her. She’s been on the “verge of having kids” for the past 10 years. There’s nothing wrong with saying “Kids are great but it’s not for me”.

  • lil

    and she’s allowed to date. you don’t meet prince charming or a ready made family the moment you get out of a divorce. life is not like that, and i don’t know why you expect her to be like that.
    not everybody *ahem-pitt* is that “lucky”…

  • ivermom

    I am a Jen fan but I am tired of them asking her questions about her relationship and breakup with Brad. No wonder the world can not get over it, that is all they ever care to ask about! I am ready for Jen to go with “no comment” on anything to do with Brad or Angie. Just getting way too tired of it! Jen, please, do not go there anymore. Your fans are over you and Brad and tired of the same darn discussion!

  • CLINIQUA

    What I ‘don’t understand,’ is the media having selective amnesia and not ONCE coming back at this ugly banal crone that THE REASON WHY she’s portrayed the way she is (reject loser, scorned woman of the century), is her OWN (and her PR flack’s) very calculated doing. Uh, HELLO??? You gave a ‘Tell ALL’ to Vanity Fair in which you besmirched and ridiculed Pitt, casting suspicion, while not accusing (because she knew it would be a lie) him of infidelities – so that everyone had a very CLEAR understanding that HE left YOU, so he must be punished. You further inferred that HE left YOU for someone else. So please punish her too world. THAT, is why she gets the press she does to this day. One presumes she and her agent knew that that is the ONLY thing that would keep her in the press, the perceived ACRIMONY and ‘war,’ and whole ‘choose a side,’ (tagline to her movie with Vaughn) thing she and Huvane have orchestrated. They (press) continues to do it, or maybe they’re just letting her dig herself deeper, by not REMINDING her that hey, SHE talked Brad and put out ‘fightin’ words,’ re Angelina Jolie in her magazine, THAT is why they’re asking you about it. B*tch knew Angelina was gonna sell her magazine, come on. Lastly, she’s once again contradicting herself and coming off a liar again – she told the world she wouldn’t be talking about her relationships or the men in her life, at Gwyneth paltrow’s request – she said, ‘she’s right, she’s right!’ That supposedly explained her never commenting on Vaughn til HE dumped her, and now she’s trying to pull and Angelina and extoll this douchebag’s virtues?? You know one person in the world she SHOULD hate for DUMPING her in front of the world, and then telling the world WHY he dumped you. Wow, lady. You are not only homely, no-talented and confused – you are DUMB.

  • gc

    Could this person be any more pathetic?

    Aniston is in serious need of a life coach. She’s an unholy mess. I don’t care how many years she claims to have been in therapy. That is one job that is recession proof.

    Back to the couch, Jen.

    she did not have long term relationship with anyone. she is not going to jump on and get pregnat from someone she knows a couple of weeks ago. she have to be in love to have a baby with someone else. is that all of with human nature do. you fall in love and then have a baby with someone. when she said she plan to have a childern , that does not mean that she going to be pregnant from the man in the street or the man she just start to know, or man that she does not love.

    loonies for nomal people there is process to get pregnat. you have to be in love first to start that process. losers.

    Angelina Jolie is crying right now!!!! Jen has found true love!

  • X

    i’m on her side when it comes to the angie/jen fight. i hate angelina (miss i’m above everything and i can be loved and considered as a humanitarian because i adopt orphans and pretend to get 14 million dollars (received for simple babies pix) to humanitarian causes…as long as i won’t see a big change in Africa or in a poor country, i’ll never believe them because SORRY BUT WITH FOURTEEN MILLION DOLLARS YOU COULD CHANGE THE FACE OF ENTIRE AFRICA…pfft i won’t fall for this.) ANYWAY, that said, i can’t understand what’s all the buzz about jen in that very moment…i mean, she’s done practically nothing lately and that film will obviously not be a huge success (i’m not being mean, i actually like jen). Why does she keep insulting people, saying it’s not our F.U.C.K.I.N.G business? hello jen! you wanted to become a celebrity? this is part of the fame pack…you’re famous, people stalk you, follow you everywhere, take your pix like damn, never leave you alone and want to know everything about your life, all this is part of the business! i can’t stand celebrities that brag and are like ” oh stop taking those pics, paparazzos, don’t be an ass!” (not mentioning Alba btw). that’s so friggin’ stupid. Get over your fame, get over your photographers, get over your FANS!

    anyway, it would be about time to have a baby,jen! let’s hope that guy is serious because he surely seems NOT. But i’m dying to see jen preggo. She seems quite in love with Meyer, let’s hope they make it fast! :p

  • ivermom

    Another thing I wish they would stop asking her about is having kids. Why do they continue to “dwell” on this. Either she will announce one day that she is pregnant or she will never have kids. Who cares?

    Brad moved on and had kids, does that automatically mean that Jen has to run out and snatch up a man to have kids with or can she just date and enjoy her peaceful life? Not every woman wants to have children. I hope she does not submit to having kids because of “pressure” and rather let it come into her life under good circumstances. I would love to see her have a child or two but not just because of the pressure she is feeling from the media.

    #37: wait and see……………You are clueless……………. I just told you the truth. Wait and see. Will you apologize when I am proven right (again) ? …………..I doubt it…………….. all these people talk garbage about Jennifer on JJ. I hate the antipathy here. I am not a Brangelina fan or anyone’s fan. I just told you the truth because I know. Wait and see. That’s all. You will FIND OUT I am right. Whether to “believe” or not is your life…… it is irrelevant to the situation.

    #38 : she is trying to compliment him for media PR……………..she is in love with someone else and marries the guy who John is copying. John is HIRED by CAA, but is also a friend. A stand in. A body double for the other guy. A “sex symbol”. John leaves soon. I KNOW WHO HE IS COPYING. OK? I KNOW. That is why I am different from everyone here on this topic. I KNOW.

  • sad lame jen

    She says nothing about being in love with Mayer or even saying that she wants children with Mayer.
    -
    She’s says she she hopes she will have children, that ‘that’s the plan,’ and that she’s ‘on the verge,’ of it – but she doesn’t necessarily say Mayer will have anything to do with it. She’s just saying it because, DUH – she’s 40 years old. Wake up. This woman does this all the time, announces her intentions devoid of any relationship or particular man being around, or if they are – it ends up tanking…she said the same stuff with vaughn….how he was extraordinary, and smart and blah blah snore.
    -

    She said years ago, back in 2005 that she hoped to be on the road to having a family in a year. That was 4 years ago!! She’s stupid because she doesn’t have to even discuss it, that way when it doesn’t happen she isn’t seen as a loser. Does the term reverse psychology mean nothing to this lame?

    Lovely concept of life; no hanging on to past experiences, but rather learning from them and moving on. I admire Jennifer for her huge heart and compassionate concern for others. I realize she is a private person, and i am respectful of that as a fan of many. Not everyone has to live their private lives in front of the paps, and i totally agree with Brad in his recent statement where he makes it clear that he hates the paps for hounding him and his g/f Angie. It’s way past time for everyone to grow up, let go, and let these celebs live their lives in peace. Hating for any reason only harms the hater…..amen
