John Mayer Gives Jennifer Aniston "Moral Support"

John Mayer Gives Jennifer Aniston

John Mayer attended the 2009 Oscars with girlfriend Jennifer Aniston on Sunday and admits he was “very, very nervous.”

Here’s what he spilled on Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show while promoting his cruise line, the Mayercraft Carrier 2 [via Us]:

On not really fitting in on the red carpet: “It’s not my world, the Oscar thing. You can go from a Grammy winner to a water boy when you walk in the Kodak Theatre on Oscar night. That’s just like a whole different level… So the idea of walking down a red carpet is such … you know that forever, I basically stepped into the picture frame of Hollywood. For one night, I put on the most amazing suit and entered into the picture frame. You have to really be with someone that you know who has your back in that situation, and she did, and it was really great.”

On using Jen’s connections to meet people: “[I asked Jen,] ‘Will you please introduce me to so-and-so?’ It was really, really fun.”

On needing to grow up a little: “As men, we’re incredibly sensitive about the decisions that we make with the women that we’re with. I’m the kind of person who’s like: If I’m going out with a friend who’s bringing a woman and that friend brings another friend and I have to sit on one side of the table with that other person I don’t know, I have a terrible time because I always feel like people look by and go, ‘Oh, look who he’s with!’ The whole thing is very odd to me. I maybe need to grow up or something.”

On why he and Jen decided to make the Oscars their first major public event together: “At some point, you feel comfortable and say this is the choice I want to make. I think a year is a pretty good period of time with which to say, ‘Let’s go have a really good time at the Oscars!’”

  • Joanne

    Such a beautiful couple they make, but i thought they didnt wallk the red carpet at the Oscars, well at least i saw no pictures of them……

  • LOL

    Lame reason to be at the oscars for someone who friend is just presenting. Btw whatever happend to he will be out of sight starting from monday? Isn’t this interview on monday?

  • lety

    He spoke very well, sounded very sincere. They look great and Very happy, and at the end of the day that’s all that really matters…Nuff said

  • Skippy

    They seemed happy and all parties have moved on. I wish them well.

  • Cayanne

    I hope the best for them. More specific in that respect, is hoping the best for them in that crazy world of entertainment. I know they would make it outside of it. It’s just a hope that they can survive that bubble down there.

  • Stunning Sophia Bush

    I love this couple!

  • Adrianna

    I think she looks beautiful. I hope she’s happy.

  • artonist

    She looks happy, but she should concentrate in making good movies like The Good Girl: http://www.actressscene.com/2008/07/jennifer-aniston-in-good-girl.html

    FYI : THEY ARE NOT A REAL COUPLE. THIS IS CAA;S PUBLICITY GAME :L THAT IS WHY IT IS “friends” and “moral support” and pretending to be “oscar boyfriend” for the evening……….………………and it ends soon………..it’s utterly pathetic and a direct compensation for Jolie/Pitt…………CAA has proven themselves to be the most irresponsible and politically insidious talent agency in LA. That is why Jolie/Pitt left…………..anyway……..the game is over……………she cant go on faking her life away like this………whatever needed to get sorted out has been and CAA need to stop feeding their audiences dead fish……………Mayer, “the friend” and Jen the defensive have intentionally confused people into thinking Mayer is a real boyfriend when in fact he is a friend. They pose and kiss for the camera and when the camera isnt there, they go theor own ways. His “oscar boyfriend” performance was his last role. NOW he leaves and need to find his OWN life instead of trying to copy Jen’s future partner’s ………..and faking his career by copying other people lives and talent.

  • Angel

    “Moral support”? Jen sounds like she still needs MAJOR therapy after all those years in therapy. It’s been five years since her divorce and she needs an army of hand holders for her to present a silly award. She is seriously such a vain, insecure baby. When will she grow up? Why does Mayer put up with her?

  • jane

    I hear Jennifer has a very harsh face. In real life you can really see it.

  • Anonymous

    John Mayer’s real strength is MIMICKING TALENTED PEOPLE…………not music or verbal defecation

  • denise

    How long is this fool, John, going to pretend to be interested in Maniston.

  • http://www.myspace.com jen fan

    Very sweet interview….

  • jane

    when will the charade end. LOL

  • http://justjared tan

    Erm, why is he making such a big deal out of this? Plus, going to give Jennifer ‘moral support’? She was only presenting! It’s not like it was her first time and that she was nominated! (The day she gets nominated is the day the world ends)

  • jackie

    Jen is still effed up in the head. I have she goes back to therapy. I hear her psychiatrist died a few years ago.

    John is a media whore.

  • jackie

    EDIT: I hope she goes back to therapy.

  • Skippy

    Maybe he likes her. He is the one that said a year. Nothing he said gave another impression if you listened to the interview. Can’t we all just move on?

    Hell will freeze over, before ‘Rachel Green’ is nominated for an Oscar…bwahahahahahahaha

  • annie

    She looked really pretty.I like the braid thing she did with her hair like LC from the Hills

  • mickey

    Maniston is so desperate. They’re turning into Tom and Katie. “We REALLY LOVE EACH OTHER!!!” “SEE I CAN GET A MAN!!!” Oy.

  • Sam

    I liked her hair too, and she looked lovely in her dress

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

    You didn’t have to come on here and didn’t have to respond. Frankly “spare yourself the details if you don’t like them”. The rest of us would like the details, thank you.

  • emma

    John is a media whore. He is always talking to someone, to keep himself relevant.

    Jennifrer is a desperate, mess.

  • Rose

    Hopefully he really is into her but I have a feeling it’s all publicity. He doesn’t really say they are a couple so who knows. Moral support not the best reason to go on a date but whatever and I thought he wasn’t going to talk about them anymore.

  • david

    Ol’ ‘curtain hair’ Jennifer. She just can’t change her style.

  • rionemesis

    Gorgeous Jennifer x), keep on posting Jared! we all know how much people love to see her … not sure abot Mayer tough

  • rionemesis

  • oh please

    Aniston has never, ever stepped out of the box and did anything extrodinary, not even in the “good girl” which was a complete snooze. Her range is very limited and she sticks with roles that don’t call for change or challenge her from her reality as a bubble-gum pop, America sweetheart, girl next door performer. None of these type of characters will ever garner her an Oscar or any other type of real HW credability.

    Until she steps out and become a real woman and not a little girl in a woman’s body she will continue to be stuck.

    Moral support please, it’s not like someone died!? She is such a clinger.

    Love your comment #27! I can’t figure it out either,if people don’t like
    Jen and John,why bother to comment? The triangle is over! This
    couple is happy together and they look great together. Love them.

  • http://jenniferAniston-Voguedecember2008 carolynlee

    Lets see, she has been involved with hollywood all of her life – as a child of hollywood parents and then as an actress herself . So at 40 she needs moral support to present an award , not by herself but with someone who is very capable of carrying the ball by himself . What a perfect example of a superficial , fake , mediocre (i’m being kind ) , calculating, opportunistic , sugically altered bimbo . I doubt any one of any stature in HW wants to be seriously personally or professonally connected with her .

    Left you a new message there as well. The triangle is over but not in their minds yet. It may never be. We can just keep plucking along. I love these two as well. They both seem very happy. Loved Jen’s comment in the video “John said me too”, too funny, making a joke about their age difference. I have never heard John’s laugh, too funny.

  • Moo

    If Jen would quit yammering about how she and Brad still talk, about how uncool Jolie is, etc, maybe she wouldn’t have needed moral support to present. at the Oscars. The entire audience knew about her most recent whine.

    I was married for 17 years and have a grown son with my ex. I do not need any moral support to be around him. I also do not feel the need to share congratulations, etc. even though we are on friendly terms. It’s called moving on. It’s called closure.

  • Patty Ann

    As usual, Jen’s wicked sence of humor made me laugh! It’s not everyone who is so confident in themselves that they can joke as she did. I wish Jen and John well…they make a very good looking couple, and their happiness shows…..amen

  • REALITY

    He got backlash from his fans for getting involved in the triangle PR.

    Well said! This is why she dates man-children like Vince Vaughn
    and John Mayer. These guys will never grow and neither will she.
    Now, she’s jumping on the latest Hollywood cougar trend. “Anything for attention and my career” is her life’s motto.

    She’s way too FAKE to have a REAL relationship, anyways. Can you imagine this 40 yr. old crybaby trying to raise kids? She would be a disaster. She would teach them how to spray tan, get their hair done and pose for the paparazzi. What a wonderful, fulfilling life.

  • Ha!

    Geez, I love how most of you assume the moral support she needed was because of that wimp, Brad Pitt. Could it possibly have had anything to do with being on live television in front of millions of people worldwide? Nothing nervewracking about that, right? She certainly wouldn’t be the first or last professional actor who was thrown by being a part of the Oscars. Get over the BP/AJ thing. Despite what some of you think, the world DOES NOT revolve around them.

  • omg

    The video just brings out the fakeness of this relationship.I knew she would touch her hair and her face is a shame.

  • African Girl

    Moral support to walk the freaking red carpet?! GMAB!! :roll:
    .
    Everything has to be a Major huddle in JA’s life.
    .
    Of course the implication here is that she is still a victim…coz you know she is the first and only woman who has ever gotten divorced and not just that, she is the only woman on earth who’s ever had to be amongst a sea of people with her husband.
    .
    Pathetic.

  • right

    She needed support because she was infront of millions worldwide,so I wasn’t wrong about her,she so insecure.

  • http://www.justjared.com K.G.

    Love them! and Jennifer does belong at the Oscars. She’s a voting member of the Academy and she was one of the people that didn’t vote for Brangelina so get over it!

  • irene

    I see him as tacky.
    He is not doing her many favors saying that. Moral support? How about being with your loved one in a special night, having fun, meeting new people while together?
    he is presenting her as somewhat insecure, needing of constant suport and not as an independent-grown up successful professional (which she is, regarding her money)
    So, I do not understand him puttinge her down. My first time as an Oscar boyfriend. REally?????
    How about: our first time together as a public couple … he could have saaid many things and he chooses to talk like that… ME, ME, ME , I, I, I .
    I feel, I have, I need, I …
    All about him.

  • irene

    I bet that he wished to walk the red carpet and had to settle for the after parties interviews and pics.

  • smellycat

    Kindly enlighten me .. moral support for what?!
    She was only a presenter – Jessica Biel was there to present or something but did JT tag along? N-O!

    I find it HILARIOUS when Aniston fans think that those who support Brad and Angelina are bitter over the fact that they didn’t win. Even if Angelina does not win another Oscar in her lifetime, she already HAS one and that will never be erased. As for Brad, he has been nominated twice – that’s better than NOT being nominated at all..
