Jennifer Aniston Will Be Honored With Santa Barbara Film Festival's Montecito Award

Jennifer Aniston will be honored with the Montecito Award at the 2015 Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Friday, January 30!

“Once in a while a performer who we thought we knew gets outside of his or her comfort zone and shows us the unexpected,” SBIFF executive director Roger Durling shared in a statement about the 45-year-old actress. “When that happens it is cause for celebration — and this is why the 2015 Montecito Award is bestowed upon Ms. Aniston.”

    This whole movie seems to be about Jen getting out of her comfort zone rather than it being a good movie. 25 years of acting and she is finally out of her comfort zone.

    Shouldn’t Renee Z gets 2 or 3 Montecito Awards for gaining and losing weights for Bridget Jones?Getting out of her comfort zone. WTF!!!! There are so many actors/actresses went out of their comfort zone. You don’t see that award went to them. It sure pays to have a great PR man who can pay to get her the comfort zone award.
