Jennifer Aniston Returns Fire in Bill O'Reilly Feud

Jennifer Aniston Returns Fire in Bill O'Reilly Feud

Jennifer Aniston heats up the verbal wars with Bill O’Reilly after he criticized her comments on single motherhood.

The 41-year-old former Friends actress told People, “Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on earth. And, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts), but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly, I’m just glad science has provided a few other options.”

O’Reilly called Jen‘s comments “destructive to our society” and claimed that she was “diminishing the role of the dad.”

    Good for Jen! Love her!

  • Ripple

    Good response, Jen!

  • Brightside

    What is wrong with her? 41 years old and manless…but why? I know she can attract men but she just can’t seem to keep them. I can only think that her relationship ideals must be so exacting that men just give up in digust. Either that or she’s one of those women who are so fixated on an ex that she won’t give other men a fair chance.

  • Mayer

    Jen was stuck in 1998 and boring in bed. Jessica was sexual napalm.

  • Tata

    Well done, Jen!!!

  • maud

    I am not a fan of Jennifer Aniston.. But her answer is just AWESOME! Go, Jennifer!!!

  • ugh

    I dislike them both.

  • noway

    “…..but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly”

    LMAO, she said that? I like her for that snarky comment alone.

  • hah!

    my comment shall consist of:

    brad brad something something poor jen angelina brad brad maddox pax.

    that is all.

  • Conando

    Burn! You go Jen.

  • Mai

    love her answer! wtg Jen!



  • melissa

    Great way to handle this, classy and funny
    Go Jen

  • Lala

    She did handle that well, I still don’t like her though.

  • Jade

    Brilliant come back! I love Jen and she’s right. This is the 21st century, NOT the 1950′s (though I am sure the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Sarah Palin would prefer that era). A woman these days can do whatever the hell she wants. And what still gets me, when a woman is over 35 years old and single, she gets a huge amount of criticism yet when a man of that same age is single, he’s applauded for living the ultimate bachelor lifestyle. Double standards anyone?

  • bobbi

    I thought I read in one of her Vanity Fair articles that she pays NO attention to anything said about her. Why would she care or feel the need to retort to O’Reilly?

  • bobbi

    Oh wait. By doing so, she garners more attention for her newst flop of a movie.

  • bella

    Wow first post I seen of JA that the comments saying something good about her finaly get a thumbs up,,it makes a nice change -but Im guessing it wont last long because the Brangelina worshipers( ass-lickers) are still asleep

  • mY TURN

    Well once you have Brad Pitt ….. so handsome !! I Loved Legends of the Fall,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Guess no one else will do. Maybe she should have given him that baby he sooo Badly wanted … Looks like AJ give her all and then some. She could have had happily ever After . Thats the way it is….. I dont think she will ever have a baby .. She works to hard exerciseing and dieting to wreak her body at this point .

  • Catchy

    ahahahhaha niiiiice Jen!!

  • yara

    Great responce, and very true!

  • coachhandbagsonsale

    this girl needs a man to love her before she keeps messing around and look pathetic lol

  • Matt

    How exhausting it must be for Bill O’Reilly to always be negative and find a way to bitch about everything. I’m glad Jenn stood up for herself with her latest comment, but now she should just ignore the ass.

  • 1977

    what did jen do with her prince charming?

  • Not Impressed by AJ


    Oh my GOD, just leave her alone. It’s Bill who has the problems, not her.

  • f

    Everyone knows her publicist wrote that for her.

  • Katsaridoula

    I don’t like this woman at all BUT I must say I am quite surprised what came out of her mouth! Do you think she was dictated those words or are they her own???

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    …this is exactly what o’reilly wants. now watch him reply to her reply. ugh.. they’ll both milk this for attention.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    As I mentioned in the previous thread, it is not what you said is how you said it.

    If she put what she said previously in this context, I am sure Billy O’Reilly wouldn’t have attacked her like he did. Well, what do we expect from an idiot who can put a full sentence together. Also, I am not surprise if someone helped her with this response.

  • t

    ROTFLMAO! jen is amazing!


    Get her on a seat next to Bill and see how she answers. Anything put out in writing to people mag is by her publicits/PR team she pays 10% to write it. She can’t think thoughts, you only have to watch any interview.

  • airhead

    Thats the handy work of Huvain, remember Jen doesn’t have a brain.

  • LadyB

    Please…Jen is twisting her words. That;s what Jen should have said from the beginning..that women who have not found their Prince Charming at an older age have other options….The way Jen said it at first make it seem like having IVF should be a choice from the get-go, and that is what made Bill O Reilly fired up because that’s not promoting family values.

  • Paula Cala

    She (Jennifer A.) has a valid point, however, I (via the ‘media’–suspect as I type it, by the way) feel her to be an embittered, aging, older woman (& I’m almost 60). She selfishly gave up an apparently loving marriage for her ‘career’ so, I say, live with it already! One can’t have it all and she made her choice! Do not begrudge the rest of us family-folk and make s___ out of the institution of marriage. We were smart (by the grace of our higher power, or whatever…), and did what we are meant to do. Pair up, love up, live a fully satisfying, UNSELFISH (!), partnership with another and raise a family! I used to love her on TV but she has shown herself to be the person she was all along. Unfortunately, her success runs down her face like poached eggs. I feel sorry for her. PKS

  • ChinChin

    @f: lol exactly my thoughts….JA is not known to be intellectually capable of expressing herself…..

  • Elena

    And, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts),

    She had that once upon a time and threw it away. I like JA but I think she has made some bad relationship decisions .

  • ChinChin

    @ELLLES: yeah, thats a good idea….i would love to see JA and Bill have a one on one interview l…now that would serve as a true test how articulate and intellectual she is hahahaha

  • SJC

    @mY TURN:
    If I recall, it was Jen that wanted a baby and he said he wasn’t ready.

    I like the fact that we don’t necessarily need a man to have kids any more. But don’t get me wrong, when I have kids I do want a man in the picture but if I get to 35 and that hasn’t happened yet, I’m not going to give up not having them just because I don’t have a man.

    I love Jen for giving her OWN opinion on the matter. A lot of people refrain from saying what they really think because they are afraid of what people think. I hope that she does find a guy to have kids with but that doesn’t always happen.

  • bet

    That why we love you Jen. She respond with class, manner , on point with humour.

    Un blog source complet pour suivre l’actu de Jennifer Aniston ici : ;)


  • Gwin

    Jennifer Aniston is an actress. She is doing what she loves. Which is great! She found an actor who understood that commitment, fell in love and married him. He met someone else that stirred something different in him so he left. He hurt her. And we all watched (it is bad enough when it is just amongst friends and family!). There doesn’t seem to be anyone else out there for her (yet). She is still an actress. This is what she does. And she loves it. She is far from an idiot (and is little sarcastic), just listen to an interview or two. Even still we don’t “really” know any celebrity right? Only the tidbits that slip through or the webs media spins beyond that..far far from the truths in which they were spun. Remember: Media is not her making, it is OURS. WE require it as part of OUR infatuations with celebrity. She wants to have a child. She has a good point. Bill didn’t consider her circumstances before he spoke. He probably will now. He’s not a bad guy. She’s not a bad gal. It will be fine.

  • burnt bacon

    Any woman can easily find her Bill O’Reilly. She just needs to look in the sewers.

  • scarlet

    I have to laugh at the people who actually think this woman was able to articulate anything. In the interveiws she has done to date ON CAMERA.. she can’t even explain what the film is about. When asked a question she usually just laughs or give some sentence fragment answer..

    she would have done better not to let her PR guy feed those words to People. She will be confronted again about this and she won’t be able to answer. After the way she acted on the Leno show she tried to form a pre package answer to the AI topic. but she KNEW nothing about the subject. Had no answers.. So now she has a come back. YEAH.. (oh wait that’s her favorite word) she says it at least 6 times in any interview.. funny I don’t see that word in this “snappy come back”

    Can’t wait for Bill to come back. Jenny poo is playin in a pool where she does not know how to swim..

    This could get really fun.

  • Are you serious?

    What are people celebrating in this reply? I think people were assuming the first comment was about single motherhood with abstentee dads but this comment is not about that and neither was she advocating adoption but promoting science as an option for fathering a child? That leaves us with going to the sperm bank from an unknown donor? I think this is actually destructive to the society!
    What expalnation do you want to give to a child about this? Also how much does this cost? Is this an option for only rich people? if so, why did she say herself is not ready to take this option when she;s been saying she want a kid and cannot find her “Bill O’reilly?

  • jen

    She actually has a point.

    Didn’t Angelina raise Maddox for 3 years on her own? and he looks like a happy kid.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    jen @ 08/13/2010 at 9:57 am

    But Angie didn’t adopted Maddox without a father.

  • Dawn

    Hahaha. I love her response.

  • Dawn


    Yes. She did.. And she probably started the process to adopt Zahara before she got together with Brad, too.

  • Are you serious?

    Unfortunately Aniston is not not talking about adoption. She advocating you go to the sperm bank!

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    Here is the question. Did Angie started adopting Maddox without a father?
