    $500,000? that’s it?? all her other cool friends are donating at least $1mill

  • Anonymous

    Good Job Jennifer!!! Bravo!! Also, this is a proof that when a celebrity donates a large amount, the news will go around, people will know. There is no “donate quietly”.

  • ohgoody

    how nice, she’s actually forking out money. what’s in it for her now? ran out of men to make the public pay attention to her?

  • Good

    Good for her!
    Thank you Jen for helping those in need…

  • claire

    wowowow… even when the woman donates there’s people here to criticize! let her live for god’s sake.

  • Dawn9476

    Good for Jen!

  • Things that make you go mmmmm

    @claire:

    Just wait. The criticism here will get worse.

  • SASHA

    WHY THE HELL WAS SHE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. THOSE WHO WERE THERE ALREADY DONATED MILLIONS AND TAKE TIME TO PARTICIPATE AS WELL.
    MS FAMEWH@RE HERE AS HER FANS KNOW WAS THERE TO HUG EVERY HEADLINE. NOW THAT WE’VE CALLED HER OUT FOR WHAT SHE IS A FAMEWH@RE TO THE CORE SHE’S NOW DONATIONG $500.000.
    JENNIFER YOU ARE WHAT YOU ARE AND THANK GOD US BRAD AND ANGIE FANS UNITED TO CALL YOU WHAT YOU AND YOUR FANS ARE.
    FAMEWH@RES.

  • SASHA

    TOO LATE MANISTON FUGFACE.
    WE’VE ALREADY CALLED YOU AND YOUR PR MACHINE OUT ON THIS ONE.
    YOU’RE NOTHING BUT A FAKE AND A USER. AND TO THINK YOU USED THE DEATH OF SO MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE TO DRAW ATTENTION TO YOUR FUGGY FACE AND SKANK OF A MOVIE CAREER.
    SHAME ON YOU AND SHAME ON JUSTJARED FOR NOTHING CALLING THAT LITTLE ACT FOR WHAT IT WAS.
    FAMEWH@RE.

  • why now?

    It took her almost 3 weeks after the fact to part from a measly $500k!?

    Well, I guess the shame of not being able to just show up for phone duty, bad press and Brad and Angie’s faux break up news pointing as coming from her PR camp made her do it. She’s only trying to save face and her crashing career.

    The people of Haiti say thanks but what could have been a genuine jester of giving is almost 3 weeks too late.

  • CanadaGirl

    I commend her commitment in assisting people in Haiti.
    .
    $500,000 is a lot of money. There are a lot of people in HW that I haven’t heard about donating, so I don’t know why she’s being bullied for not giving enough.

  • Baby bliss

    Seems like Jared doesn’t like it when I talk bad about Brangelina…..weird. My comment keeps getting “moderation”, that’s really stupid Jared. Doesn’t make me wanna comment on your blog anymore, you know…

  • Chris

    Wow, she’s giving money for helping people and there are still people who find something bad to say about her. Leave her alone, at least about Haiti ‘s subject, it’s really not the place i think. Sorry for my english.

  • Baby bliss

    At least they are donating. Even though it’s nothing compared to their fortune. This thread is gonna hit the hundreds comments by the Brangelo.onies claiming Jen is not that big of a star yet she still is talked about / hated on / bashed etc. Lol Brad and Angelina must be laughing ha.rd. And probably Jen too…I mean, it certainly helps her career. Angelina you are a genius. I never thought some cheating-friendly girl could have an amazing look, huge luscious lips, a killer sultry look and could be somehow a little generous (despite wanting mostly the attention) and intelligent at the same time. I’m amazed

  • Calia

    I know of celebs who makes LESS than Aniston who have donated at least $1 mil.

    That’s cheap, Jen.

  • Baby bliss

    Seriously, what was insulting with that comment?! Seems like “Brangelo*onies” is censored here LOL, that’s funny, Jared. Okay, so I’ll be nice and I’ll stop calling their worshippers that way! But seriously, “h.ard” is now restricted too?! GIMME A BREAK.

  • kitty

    okay first of all, how the hell does anyone know that all the celebs at the haiti telethon donated millions? madonna supposedly donated $250,000 and i don’t hear anyone saying sh*t about it. not everyone who participated during the telethon gave a million. i’m sure all the younger celebs (i.e. taylor swift, the jonas brothers, vanessa hudgens, zac efron… etc) didn’t donate a million. i’m sure they donated, but not that amount. so if jennifer aniston wants to donate $500,000, good for her. a donation is a donation however amount it is. it’s still helping.

    @Anonymous:

    Haters will always be on Jennifer’s case and it’s pathetic.

    NOW SHUT UP JPITTARDS!

  • office fan

    While I have nothing against her, I am not a big fan….in fact, I’m luke warm to Brad and Angelina as well. It kills me though, how weird people get about Jen and Brad and Angie. Come one now, why if you are a fan of Jen’s do you hate Brad and Angie so much? And why, if you are a fan of Brad and Angie, do you hate Jen so much? You don’t know these people at all, so you should just be a fan of their movies….not act like you know them personally and try to get involved in their personal lives. I mean, no offense to all of you Jen fan or Brad and Angelina fans, but it’s just….well, weird. That said, I applaud Jen and all the other celebrities who have made donations to help the Haiti earthquake victims.

    @SASHA:

    Oh, go cry elsewhere. Your precious couple is going to split. SO don’t take it out on the Jennifer fans.

  • Ms Anonymous

    @why now?:

    500, 000 is still a lot of money, so leave her alone.

  • Ms Anonymous

    Jennifer is doing something good for once, so the Brad and Angelina fans need ot go somewhere else to cry over the fact their precious couple if splitting. And the signs are there.

    Go girl. Good for you Jen.

  • chin can’t act

    hey bet, what’s your excuse now that chiniston announced her donation? i am sure you will come up with a whole bunch of sh!t to defend this ugly leathery face that she is not a famewh@re.

  • lovely~

    How nice of her!! she never disappoints me :)
    Good job Jennifer!!

  • kitty

    also, E! reported that they “got word that the actress has given $500,000″ but never stated when she donated it.

  • gem15

    thought she never makes her donations public? (you know, like brad and angie do solely for PR). Guess her fans won’t be able to use that one against the JPs any more. Glad she donated something, though. Anyone else notice how weird her face looks from those fillers? Her publicist has pulled almost all profile shots of her where you can really tell. Her eyesockets have receded, probably has no perefial (or however you spell it) vision anymore. Sad how actresses feel the need to do these unnatural things to themselves to stay viable. She was never a beautiful woman, cute in a quirky way when she was younger, but she just looks so strange now.

    @office fan:

    Thank you!

    I’m a fan of Brad and Angelina, and I have NOTHING against Jennifer Aniston. She seems like a nice person, and she has some good movies.

    A donation is a donation and it’s saving lives, stop picking on her.

    @Kate Bosselin:

    Ah!..don’t pick on Jen..just because she can’t act her way out of a paper bag like 3/4 of hollywood does not mean she is not a nice person…if you have donated more than $500,000 than you can bit*ch otherwise mind your tounge..

  • Nic

    IGNORING all the crazies!!!

    I want to say, huge kudos to her for dontating so much money, and doing her part for Haiti, true class!

    ROTFLMBAO @ “for once”. Yeah, right, after being called out for the past two weeks for not giving one red cent while she has the nerve to pimp herself on the telethon asking for other people’s money while SHE gave NOTHING, now she parts with a lousy $500,000. This is after Sandra Bullock gave a million and Gisele Bundchen gave a mil and a half. Sure, Brad and Angie gave $1 million total but they have six kids to support. Aniston has nobody but herself and never will have anybody but herself at the rate she is going.
    .
    Oh, and about the “body language experts” — where were they around the beginning of 2005? All the tabloids were running photos of Brad Pitt and Aniston smooching passionately on some island in the Caribbean. The day after the photos were released, they announced their separation.

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

    As I said upthread, Brad and Angie are supporting six children. Aniston is supporting nobody but herself. She can afford to give way more than a measly half-million. And why wait till now? She must have finally realized she was getting her cheap ass kicked over cavorting on the telethon asking for other people’s money and telling her friends to donate to the Haitian relief while she had donated nothing at all.

    why, thank you, i would rather be called a nasty piece of work than be fooled like an idiot by this pretentious, self-centered, talentless $ L U T! please, even you know she doesn’t do anything unless there’s something in it for herself.

  • Em

    So tired of all these haters.I think it’s nice that Jen donate money and who says everything she donates has to be public?! All these excuses are pathetic, just accept that she is a good person and move on

  • Lurker

    To Jill,
    Let it go, she donated $500,000 thousand, why shoud there be a limit on how much people donate. For someone you claim to despise, you spend so much time on her thread.

    Or is it the thrill of arguing with her fans? You seem to enjoy this too much.

  • generous Jen

    Jen gave more as a percentage of her total wealth than Brad or Angie did.
    .
    JEN———————500K————worth an est.110 Mil.
    .
    Brad And Ang——-1 Mil.————–worth an est 332 Mil. together
    .
    (500K each)—(1/2 of 332mil. =166 Mil each)

    well, at least jennifer did not have an affair with a married man on a film set like, let’s see oh yeah, angelina. as for the rest, let’s see, jennifer is beautiful, she’s successful at making money of which she has loads, she’s working with some of the most handsome men in hollywood, etc etc. and you?? oh, wait; could it be that you, poor baby, are jealous.
