  • why

    She is not acting here. That is real JA. Horny and shallow.
    She is not popular in other parts of the World, only US. You can see that on box office numbers for her films. I don`t get it, why people in US love this kind of girl next door actresses. And by the way, I think she is lesbian.

  • j

    @why:

    If so, then Mangelina is a psycho. Oh wait, we knew that.

  • AJ

    I hate how you so called haters keep comparing her to Jolie. They are two very different actresses. Jolie takes more action-packed roles whilst Aniston takes more chick flick roles. This is a big step for Aniston. I’m no woman but she is a great role model for single women out there. She’s strong and such a sweetheart. Leave her alone. She’s just doing her job.

    Of course, I am a big fan of FRIENDS so I’m a very loyal fan to the cast.

  • gem15

    she’s at least trying to shake it up a bit, get rid of that girl next door persona with racier roles, do a dark indie instead of the formulaic romcoms. her people read these threads (heck, she probably reads them) and take notes on the criticisms. it’s true that actresses her age usually don’t go the naked, raunchy route. that’s usually the twenty-thirty somethings trying to establish a name, but her career is going no where fast now that the sympathy level is waning, so she has no choice and doesn’t want to return to tv. she doesn’t need the money, so it’s all about the fame, which she seems addicted to (as i’m sure most celebrities are).

  • Listen to mayday parade

    I really did love her in friends and to be honest I have no problem with her now. She often acts in the same type of movies but so do a lot of actors (matthew mccougnahey, Kate Hudson, Angelina jolie, Hilary duff) and the list goes on and on. I do agree that she picks really lame movies to be in, but the fact of the matter is she makes so much money from the movies that she could care less if they flop or not.

    Also I love that people hate jen cause she comes off as a serial dater now but man the love of her life left her for a scary nuts hoe so leave her alone. It’s not easy finding love again when you didn’t expect to ever have to again. It’s sad, she’s the victim not the enemy. Why does no one see that Angelina was the whore who banged and stole jens husband while she was still married to him! Sigh whatever it’s irrelevant now but my point is, love jen or hate her but as long as film companies keep over her big fat cheques she’s gonna keep doing lame movies.

  • Wow

    Wow, there are more JOlie fans commenting on a Jennifer Aniston thread than there are Jennifer Aniston fans. Why is this always the case with you loons? You people are so obsessed with this woman. You do realize you only make her more popular by commenting on her all the time, or do you dumbasses not realize these sites are rated by the number of hits they get? By the way, there is a reason why Jennifer Aniston keeps getting jobs, her movies make money for production companies. Figure it out yet dumbasses?

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    fardous @ 10/20/2010 at 7:08 am

    Marley & Me was not MANiston’s movie. Hello! Look at the title. Without Owen & the dog, especially the dog the movie wouldn’t have hit #1. Plus the book was on the best seller list. You don’t actually believe God Almighty was Jen’s movie, do you? You don’t really believe The Break Up is Jen’s movie, do you? How about Alone Comes Polly? Without Ben, Jim, Vince, Owen, and the dog, those movies wouldn’t have been a hit. MANiston was just played a supporting role in those movies.

    Look at Mismanagement, Love Happens, & Switch. These movies didn’t have great casts to support her. Therefore, these movies tanked. Horrible Bosses & the new Adam Sandler movies will probably do well. Not because Jen hag. Is because the supporting casts like Adam, Nicole, Kevin Spacy, Jamie Foxx, Colin F., and…..

    However, BB was Brad’s movie. IB was Brad’s movie. Brad was the A list actor in both movies. Fincher has worked with Brad how long and QT has Brad in mind to play one of the characters in IB.

  • norman the dog

    This is the video of X on MTV TRL when this guy asking her about Norman as if Norman is her husband. OMG LOL She was obviously angry about the way he asks her a questions about Norman. Oh, poor thing. She is so pathetic.

    Just like you MANiston hags are obsessed with Jolie. Now that you mentioned, I will stop posting on here. I don’t want to give her thread more hits.

  • Ben

    First, nothing but sappy rom coms, now, nothing but half-dressed emotionally deviant women. Why, oh why, can she not just take a break? I am bewildered as to why she must always be working on a movie, I am sooooooo tired of her. I remember a few years back when Kevin Spacey took a big break from acting after commenting that he was sick of seeing himself in movies so audiences must be sick of him as well. He is wise, Fame hungry Aniston is not.

  • nakedoldjennifer

    this is not acting for the 44yoa botoxed hag,playing w/herself and talking to CC on the phone is what she does every night

  • hee

    it’s too bad Jen isn’t involved in home wrecking,absent parenting,calculated photo ops, and rape movies…Jen just doesn’t know how to live the high life….she’s just stuck in enjoying sex and her body while having a fun loving life with real friends… too bad for Jen she doesn’t know what she’s missing

  • http://yahoo.com aseret64

    @ronald: another hit? did she ever have one? none that I know of…….

  • The Real Deal

    @Listen to mayday parade:

    Got news for ya pookie, Aniston said that BP wasn’t the love o f her life but a love in her life. And if you think that Jolie is a “scary nuts ho (leave off the “e” she’s not a garden tool), fact is, Jolie is still running circles around this useless waste of oxygen, Jolie has written and is directing a feature length movie, she is being sought after for some really good roles, while Aniston, let’s see, masturbates, has a lesbian threesome, goes topless and again masturbates. Yeah, real classy stuff here…she’s really edgy now….

    And since you brought up the revised history of the PR manufactured “Golden Couple”, let me ask you this. I will assume that you are a female. Why in the 21st century are women still wanting to play victim. This woman is no victim. Her marriage was DOA and was heading for divorce, Jolie or no Jolie. She herself initially said that her divorce was amicable, until she decided that she needed to make herself look like a pathetic dishrag so a bunch of dumped bitter hags could project their own feelings of worthlessness, bitterness and rejection onto her, which she’s been using to her advantage for the last 51/2 years. Also, how does one “steal” a man? Did Jolie bop him over the head and put him in her purse? Everyone involved (that doesn’t
    include you dear) and also Courtney Cox, said there was no affair, in fact in 2008, Aniston was gushing about Pitt, why would she do that to someone who supposedly cheated on her??

    You hags need to stop with the “woe is Jen” crap. Its been over half a decade and there has been women who have been actually humiliated—hello? Remember Sandra Bullock- who didn’t piss and moan, but wished her ex well and was on TV dancing with Betty White and is not trying to play sit and spin on every available d ick that she can ( and you call Jolie a ho, a woman that has been in a relationship with one man for almost six years), yet Jennie, sport fkuc, has been b anged more often than a Salvation Army drum, and dumped I may add.

    I’m outta here, I’ve given this worthless c um dumpster more attention than she deserves.

    Buttercup is a film being directed by Niki Caro who directed Keisha Castle-Hughes to an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for Whale Rider and directed Charlize Theron to an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for North Country. The 2 leads in Buttercup are Alan Arkin who is having a difficult time getting over his wife’s death and Jennifer as his neurotic daughter who tries to help him thru the situation.

    “Oscar winner Alan Arkin is set to star opposite Jennifer Aniston in the dark indie “Buttercup,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

    Niki Caro (“Whale Rider”) directs the dramedy from a script by Alice O’Neil.

    Arkin will play a grossly irresponsible father who, in the wake of his wife’s death, decides to get his life back on track with the help of his slightly neurotic daughter (Aniston).

    The Emmy-winning actress has spoken candidly about her involvement in the project in interviews during the last six months.

    Groundswell’s Michael London is producing the picture with Brian Koppelman and David Levien.

    Production is scheduled to begin next spring.

  • jaye

    I was hoping Aniston would do something more imaginative than undressing. I don’t know what she is capable of because she hasn’t taken any chances. At this point I think she’s pretty much is type cast and won’t be offered any meaningful roles.
    -
    I have seen a few of her movies, but a steady diet of them gets tiresome. She can do a Rom Com in her sleep and that’s why they’re no longer ‘fresh’. They don’t take any great acting ability or effort. She likes Rom Coms because she’s comfortable in them, having virtually played the same role over and over. it works for her, but she really hasn’t challenged herself as an actress.
    -
    Yes, she has a certain fan appeal and frankly, I found her engaging in a couple of the movies. But obviously she isn’t doing anything different in the future. Unlike a lot of the A-list celebrities, who get offered many types of roles, she only gets to choose from Rom Coms. If you think that she’s turning down great roles, she’s not. If she were offered anything meaningful and turned it down, it would be all over the tabloids.
    -
    My guess is she’s feeling her age and hearing the clock ticking. Obviously her body is all she thinks she has to offer now. As comfortable of her longevity that her fans may be, there are certain realities that can’t be dismissed. There is the quality of that longevity; can you see her playing someone’s mother or grandmother? Most actors aren’t relevant in Hollywood the entirety of their careers. Soon, younger and prettier actresses will be getting the roles she’s offered now.
    -
    People, even those who supported her, are getting tired of the ‘poor Jen’ torch that many of her fans have carried for six years. She’ll need to make the transition to a more mature actress or sit on the side lines. That’s just life in Hollywood. It she cared more about her craft and less about what people think, she might have a chance. Image might be everything in Hollywood, but it has to be the right one at the right time.
    -
    Aniston hasn’t seemed interested in perfecting her craft, only in making as many movies and as much money as she can. There’s nothing wrong with that, but she will always be compared to other A list actresses and come up lacking. No doubt about it, she makes great money, but not as much as the real A-list movie stars per movie. Besides that fact, the movies that she appear in as the headliner don’t cost as much to make; therefore it is easier for her movies to achieve a reasonable profit. The movies she’s headlined ( meaning she was the main draw) are not high profile movies. No one is trusting her with a $100 million budget movie. She knows her place and seems very happy to stay in it.
    -
    As far as Aniston being compared to Jolie as an actress, realistically there is no comparison. Their chosen expression of their craft is as different as night and day. Aniston is almost exclusively Rom Com, Jolie on the other hand has been extremely versatile in her choices of roles. That’s just a fact. Yes, she’s done action, but that doesn’t make up the bulk of her roles.
    -
    it’s a natural thing for their fans to compare them, for obvious reason, but Aniston is not in Jolie’s league. Painful as that might be for her fans, I don’t think anyone can dispute that with a straight face. Comparison is a fact of fandom and is not likely to change no matter what the future holds for each of these women. It Might even have been interesting had Aniston been real competition.

    Ha! X is playing a “neurotic daughter” in the Buttaface movie: Let’s see, where have we seen this before? Oh yeah, that’s right….IN EVERY FUUCKKING CHARACTER SHE’S EVER PLAYED!! Looks like more of the same crap is coming from Ms. Imitation Vanilla Extract. Nuff’ said.

    that’s all she’s good for is exposing her body and not talent

  • dd

    she seems to know what her talent is which is showing her body.

    Uh Maniston and steamy not going to fly. Jenn just cannot sex ANYTHING up. Seriously she is bottom feed as an actor. I can see another BOMB at the box office. Please Jenn do yourself and everyone else a favor and go slither under your fame whore rock!!!

  • Kimmi

    Wow that is very sad. Sounded so boring. To bad she has to resort to sexual situation to get attention. Guess she still think being f-ckable will make her a big star. That movie sound horrible!

  • Lucky Charm

    This sounds more like a home video than a movie!

  • Saffron

    She’s risking critics saying she only looks constipated when she’s trying to “act” sexy. That’s definitely an ouch! moment.

  • needless

    This older woman should care whether her films are good or not. I totally refuse to go ever again with my grandaughter to see any more of her movies. The story lines are so yawn. They are NOT funny so blah anymore. Silly me… Oh i was so excited about seeing the movie and thought how cool it would be to have a good laugh with my sweet angel GD but even she said Nan this is the 4th movie we have seen together . Poor girl apologised for the expense and time we wasted when we could of done something else on a long fall saturday afternoon. I won’t pay out another dime for her ridiculous films.
    Hasn’t other ppl noticed that the only time a movie isokay if JA is in it is because of her co-actors. They make the movies what it is.
    I am sorry to say this but Jennifer Aniston is a terrible actress.

    She is desperate to not look like the plain & boring woman she is. Her smoke & sun damaged skin age her 10+ years.

    SHE’S SO OLD, HER CAREER IS NEERLY OVER. SO SHE NEED A RAUNCHY ROLE TO GO UP.
