    Now she donated and still the brangelina fans bat mouted her?? saying shes jzt doing it so she can get attention? PR? well shes not kissing her brother passionately, adopting kids, stealing husband n drinking her ex bfs blood jzt to get attention? if shes doing al that then she is jzt doing it for attention.. your idol isnt that clean people maybe the break up news is jzt her way of people talking about them again..

  • LuckyL

    Lol, but she’s worth so much according the fans. So she just donated 10 hair appointments?

  • Jane

    I can’t believe people criticize like if $500,000 was pocket change.
    She waited for the right charity. Good for her. Stop comparing her to Brangelina, besides they both make a good income. Madonna gave $250,000 and she has more money than alot of these people.

  • haha

    let’s face it. there are plenty of celebrities who make as much as or even more than Aniston, and still haven’t donated anything. Sure, some celebrities donated more than she did, but $500K are still A LOT of money. Good for her.

  • LuckyL

    And this chick doesn’t have one mouth to feed lolololol–not her mother’s and most certainly not any kiddies.

  • LuckyL

    Um you all are comparing, or whoever else on this thread, I’m making a few stand-alone statements.

  • Pablo

    How much did you losers donate?
    $0, $10, $20 or a pack of bandaids.
    Your forgetting what this was for in the first place and making it your own personal issues. You have no clue what the people in Haiti have gone through and go through everyday. Your just to spoiled to understand what a country without safety, order and stability feels like.

    Good for Jen, Brangie and everybody who has put their time, effort and money for this.

  • ellie’

    Jen real proud of you.. this is about helping people in Haiti.. 500 thou is alot of money and will help alot of people… Good for you Jen…and to every one that gave to help these horrible devastation that has happened. in Haiti..That’s what this about…

    Jen donates money that is super good. What I found ridiculous here is the fact that Jen hens trashed Jolie-Pitt that they call the press conference everytime they donate (which is not true by the way) and these hens claimed that Jen “donates quietly”. When Jen actually made a real donation, none of hens admitted that they were wrong in the past: she didn’t donate. A few times that she donates, the whole world knows about it: donate on Oprah, donate few hand bags, now donate 1/2 million dollars. For St. Jude, she went on TV, in front of the camera, so it’s not “quiet”. She doesn’t donate millions and millions of dollars “quietly” every year like these hens fictionalized. Glad that she finally made a donation which made news around the world, so in the future these hens cannot claim that she “donates quietly” anymore. But who am I kidding, these people have no logic, no integrity, they would say anything to worship Jen and trash the Jolie-Pitt.

  • hotmuffin

    Angelina and Brad have given before the earthquake to the Wycliff charity and many others, they have given more than any for years, this is just another stunt to make herself look good. Have you ever seen Jennifer with anyone of color, it is what it is.

  • http://justjared.com Sabreen

    Interestingly though, all I see here are a bunch of pathetic animals arguing over how much a women donated. Have any of you donated? I dont give a rats a** if shes the richest women on the face of the earth…she can give as much as she wants. And the fact that you weasels sit here and judge her is pathetic…because she is involved in other charities…..she doesnt sit around and wait to throw her millions when disaster strikes. So a**holes go somewhere else and grieve over your stupidity.

  • joy

    take your pathetic shots at a donation while the BrAnge family falls completely apart…heee

  • ellie’

    @Anonymous:
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I personally still believe donations should be done privately….But it really doesn’t matter at this point & time to be arguing over anyone with these poor people in Haiti.. So lets move on and be happy for all the money everyone gave,,, 58 mil.dollars will do alot of good for these precious people…God Bless…

  • Twinkle

    Now, now everyone. She’s got a lot of folks that depend on her too: Her hair stylist and colorist. It’s harder than it looks to maintain that easy, California blond look. Anyone that colors their hair knows that the color washes and fades away like that *snap of finger*. Plus, she has wavy hair so straightening it everyday, the poor stylist probably has to make housecalls every morning. Don’t forget the dermatologist and plastic surgeon that she probably has on retainer. After all, how else does an over 40, sun worshipping, smoker and drinker still look flawless. Let’s now forget her personal chef that cooks low fat, low carb, low cal so that she can keep wearing the slit-up-to-there dresses. Oh, I almost forgot about the frequent holidays to Cabo to lounge on the beach. I’m sure the working class Mexicans appreciate her tips, and the flight crew of the private plane she uses. So, you see folks it’s all proportionate–she’s got a lot of folks depending her too. So, she gave what she could. Just like the rest of us.

  • To Lurker

    THANK YOU…finally a sane voice. Jill seems to be one of the ring leader for he loons, as well as, passing through. They want to criticize her for donating $500,000, but they haven’t even donated themselves. They are nuts. Just ignore them. Jared posts this sh!t just to keep his website running. It is actually getting really boring.

  • Twinkle

    Canadagirl: I’m unemployed. Lost my job over a year ago. I gave $10. This is not to toot my own horn. Trust me. Great that she gave but read my previous post….

  • gracie

    I thought she donates quietly— another copycat of B&A. She is pathetic. What took her so long? She was probably forced to donate.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    @FamouslyCool: ..ahahahahahahaha.. you newbies kill me. just because i think the justjared’s jolie fans are nuts doesn’t mean i like [x], dumbfcuk. i’m one of the ‘maniston’ bashing four fathers. i was bashing maniston on this site years before you even knew about this ish. i was here yearssss before the losers you look up to were here. you better google the name [FUG FACE MANISTON], bish. now eat a dcik and choke on the baby-batter. ahahahahahahahahahahaha..

  • gracie

    SHE DONATES QUIETLY HUH?

    HYPOCRITES, THEY CRITICISE BRAD AND ANGIE AND SAY IT IS FOR PUBLICITY BUT PRAISE MANISTON FOR DOING THE SAME THING —- 3WKS LATE.

  • gracie

    I’m glad though, she has finally come to her senses, shamed into donating some real money this time and not some used old shoes/bags or smart water crap, at least we, Brangelina fans are honest, we are not hypocrites like her fans who criticise everything nice Brangelina does, and never give them credit for all their good work. The money will help Haiti victims.

  • UNBELIEVEABLE!

    this is why I have lost most of my faith in humanity while everyone here is fighting about brad and angelina and jenn and all this other b.s. The people of Haiti are dealing with real problems. I don’t know why jenn donated and I don’t really care that money is going to do a lot of good. If people donated to this cause they should be given a pat on the back not critizied it shouldn’t matter if your a celebrity or not, or if u donated $5 or $500,000. If you donated any money to haiti then u did the right thing and that’s all that should matter. But I guess no good deed goes unpunished. To all the people here that did donate no matter how much I’ll give you your pat on the back and I’ll think a good thought for u.

  • Josephina

    I am glad she gave. Thank you, Jen.

    She gave because she was outed for revealing how narcisisistic she really is…People dying senseless deaths in Haiti and so, she comes up with three great ideas-

    1. Upstage the horrific Haiti tragedy by being on the cover of People magazine to divert attention to her great looks and her great body. After all, she kept up her looks and body after the divorce of the millenium and that is a HUGE accomplishment in Hollywood, right? Funny, i thought it was supposed to be about the craft of acting.

    2. Participate in the widely-televised Haiti telethon and ask broke Americans to look into their hearts and donate what they have while she keeps her 110 millioin in the bank. Yep, that’s real classy right there. She would have won a beauty pageant with that unusal load of eloquence.

    3. And this is the BEST idea ever — Throw a party for herself to celebrate herself. Where? At a neighboring impoverished tropical island , of course! After all, the native people won’t mind! They are too dumb to read the news or grieve about relatives in Haiti. How thoughtful. Why, she is just the right kind of gal you take home to Momma. Oh wait, it gets better. Pay for your guests to arrive by plane and then ASK them to donate their money to Haiti. After all, she won’t have that much money left over after she has spent all of that money on one day. But if they donate, then it is just like she did it, right?

    This is Jennifer Aniston, circa 2010, in all her glory. We do not have to go into her past to see her character flaws. She readily displays them on a daily basis. What is sad is that she has no real frends in her camp that care enough about her to say:

    “Honey, stop working on your body and hair so much. What have you gained from it? All it will attract are immature men who just want some. (See Vince Vaughn, John Mayer, and even Brad Pitt- back then.) If you want a man of substance, you are going to have to understand that sex alone will not keep him interested, unless you are interested in being a side chick or the one they practice with until the one they want becomes available.”

    Jennifer explained back in 2005 that her marriage did not work out and that both of them tried. Brad characterized his marriage as a dead end. You cannot keep a man that does not want to stay. If Jen had felt that her marriage was a deadend and moved on quickly because of that fact, then this blog would not exist today.

    How you nuts have conveniently dismissed their words and have taken on a more salacious, dramatic version– that Angie “stole” Brad from Jen, is driven by something other than the truth. Jen was upset and still is upset that Brad moved on so quickly with his life before she was ready and got involved in a very serious relationship. Obviously, Jen , and apparently many here who are posting, had delusional thoughts of Brad missing her enough to want to change his mind and come back.

    Brad is now a changed a man with lots of responsibilities and children. Brad and his loving partner, Angie, had a mutual appetite for a large family and then set out to create one. No one has 6 children by mistake in 5 years.

    “Now, Jen, if you have no interest in marrying or having children, that’s cool. Then learn how to play the game and play it well. But please, make up your mind and let Brad go. Baby, … he’s gone, he’s gone… and he ain’t coming back to or for you.”

    I can’t speak for PT, but I sent $100 to Doctors Without Borders the day after the earthquake hit. How about you, honey? Did you text in your $5.00 yet?

  • Dav

    It’s about time she gave something with that movie opening and all.
    Then any one see the pictures of Gerard Butler tonguing a random women on the streets. TMZ filmed it. Man Gerard was all over that women. He got a little grind in.

    JPs gave 500k EACH @ 01/25/2010 at 10:19 pm
    Loonie, Brad and Angie who are worth what? 400 mil? Gave 500K Each SO Jen gave the same.
    ***************************************************************************

    With one big exception, dummy: Brad and Angie have six kids to support. How many kids is Aniston supporting?
    .
    Oh, right, I forgot — she’s still at the I-am-and-I-do-and-I-will stage.

  • Jill

    Okay everybody, I want to you all to stop foaming at the mouth for a sec and consider this: Why did she wait until NOW to donate?
    .
    Can’t guess?

    Well, maybe I can drop a hint or two:

    Miserable… Is little money , she wins much money…

    @Kate Bosselin: she gave 500, 000 to each one.

  • bebe

    Good to see that celebrities are still donating to Haiti relief!

  • Martine

    you guys criticise. as if you guys even contributed. 500, 000 is a lot, do you guys even have that amount in the bank? yet alone to donate? leave jen alone.

  • brightside

    Fact – It is the poorer sections of the community that donate the greatest amount of money to charity. For a celeb, any celeb, a charitable donation is just another form of brand merchandising.

  • Suzi

    Sure did Gerard was passing a women at Venice Beach yesterday and he stop to talk to the lady next thing you know he was making out with the lady on the streets lol. I saw that on TMZ tonight. Guess Gerard didn’t realize cameras were out there. They said Butler just turned and walked away like he’s been there a thousand times.
    What if that chick had herpes.

  • Josephina

    Thanks, Jill. Her fans have forgotten what she has said about the demise of her own marriage.

    We get it. It cuts like a knife to learn and admit that the one you love may not feel the same way about you.

    By the way, JoliePiit gave a total of 2 million for Haiti. 1 million came from their foundation and the other 1 million came from them.

  • http://justjared Fake A** Jen

    Isn’t this the same woman who said that she prefers to donate privately, and that she would NEVER use her charity work for publicity? She is so full of crap!!!

    read comment 70, the names should familiar. if not, google them. Jennifer Aniston is a liar, manipulator, loser and opportunist. Move on Jennifer and donate to Katrina relief now, the public has outed you for what you are….pathetic.

  • Catalina

    Phew, had to get through 189 comments to get here. Whether you like her or not, which I do not, the donation was wonderful.

  • http://aol.com Unbelievable!!

    @Josephina:
    Dude, do yourself a favor and get over the triangle thing. Your vile negativity is consuming you and eating you alive!! Let it go; your mind and body will thank you later on.

  • Suzi

    I don’t expect any better from fakaniston. She is fake just like all the fake men she parade around. The whole time she sat at that desk during the telethon she was probably planning her birthday party for herself.

  • jenho

    cheap fugly HAAAAAAAAAAAG… $500,000 is NOTHING to announce… it equals to .50$ with millions in the bank… FART!!! Giselle, Sandra, Leo, etc… gave $1mil … and they have been actively working for various charities & social causes… this hag “donated” so to save that fug face…

  • a zimbo

    thank you jen the a day late and a dollar short but every bit counts

    now to all those hags putting up equations and ratios on $ for $ donations manistons donation doesnt even come close..last year it wasnt publicised much but they (JP) gave money to an NGO in my country of 250000 they have funded numerous projects worldwide and one cannot insult or even deign to bring them down to pithy one-time pr placed donations from other individuals ..even John Mayer has given more in $ and time in his short career than maniston has…laud her for her deed but please do not try and place her in a league she yet again doesnt belong..its demeaning to those who are truly charitable!(buffet, clinton, gates, jps, freeman , wsahington etc)

  • BigBear

    The announcement came right in time of her movie promotion.We all know she doesn’t care for Haiti and the poor black people over there.

    You guys remember the Katrina disaster?Where was Jen back then?Why didn’t she donate to the poor in the South of the USA?

    This woman is fake and EVERYONE knows it but plays dumb.

  • BigBear

    Money Donation + Bounty Hunter = PR for the movie.

    It’s her last chance to stay in Hollywood.I do hope the people don’t support bad rom coms anymore after the BOMB that is coming our way.

  • Trish

    I KNOW, I KNOW!!!!!

    Cause she has bomb coming out soon and is trying to sugarcoat her image. This quake happened how long ago and she NOW opens her wallet. If she opened her wallet as fast as her legs, the donation would have gotten there before the dust even cleared.

  • hag

    fug face maniston DONATES QUIETLY HUH??? that dog faced biitch was SHAMED and PRESSURED into donating after her SHAMEFUL PR display at the telethon!!!

  • anon

    when is the spittle/maniston underwear pics coming out? the skanky, dirty ones? You know #2 on the list, pose mostly naked when she has a movie ready to be released. I think Huvane had a hand in creating all this drama around this latest JP mess, so #3 already has been half way met, Jen will have to respond.. all dignified of course. haha

    Hey, how much did Jen’s good friend Oprah give to Haiti relief?

  • jennifer rocks

    @guido: ‘

    i know!!! these people are so f@#king retarded, cant do the math….leave her alone jennifer’s sweet and everything good, at least she’s not a cheater… love you jennifer :D

  • BigBear

    The world knows that Jennifer Aniston does not care for the poor!I

    And she attracts racist,nasty fans (most of her fans hate the non-white kids of Brad Pitt) Just read what disgusting things her fan base over at FF say about the kids.FACTS.

    Her fans don’t like big families or adoptions.FACTS.

    I’ve visited many sites and that’s what I’ve noticed about her fans.

    And she doesn’t do Charity quietly.That’s a fairy tale created for the dumb folks (read her fans).

  • anon

    After-Party
    For many of the stars, the fun continued at L.A.’s Tower Bar at the Sunset Tower Hotel where Clooney, DiCaprio, Witherspoon, Daniel Craig, Kid Rock, Aniston and Gerard Butler stopped by for some dinner and cocktails after the telethon.

    “Everyone seemed really happy, almost giddy,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “They were obviously celebrating the huge amount of money that they raised, and cutting loose at the same time.”

    Aww. Spittle and Jen. She was probably hoping Brad would drop by, he went home to the kids. Wonder if she fessed up she hadn’t given yet or she just played dumb? Thanks to everyone who called her out. Katrina? Oprah?

    http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20338986,00.html

  • anon

    Yep, BigBear…that is correct. Another thing, the children are ALL Brad and Angie’s kids. They are all the same to them, all 6 of them. I’m tired of any fans or media separating them into 2 groups because I’m sure they love their kids all the same.(except I wish they would set something up from Grandma “from heaven” for Pax and the twins like the other 3 got before her passing.) Racist comments about Zahara all the time, disgusting. The child is beautiful. Or picking on Shiloh about her clothes, childish. Children go through stages, be thankful they have independent minds.
