Jennifer Aniston Dishes on Married Life: It's 'Not Much Different'

Jennifer Aniston Dishes on Married Life: It's 'Not Much Different'

Jennifer Aniston is gorgeously windswept on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s April 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 47-year-old Mother’s Day actress had to share with the mag:

On being married to Justin Theroux: “Married life is so normal and fun and not much different. We felt married for so long… I’m lucky because Justin is the funniest person I’ve met, and we make each other laugh. Laughter is one of the great keys to staying youthful.”

On breaking free from rom-com characters: “I can do other things. I feel a sense of freedom that I hadn’t necessarily felt before. Also, you have to start taking chances in an industry that’s very insecure about taking chances on people. People forget who actors are. They say, ‘You’re too known to play that part. You can’t disappear.’ And we’re like, ‘Give us a chance. We’ll disappear.’”

On maintaining privacy in the age of social media: “We work so hard to maintain some sort of life and privacy, why would we intentionally put ourselves out there? It’s like you’re on TV or on a movie screen. [Fans] see you, hold their phone right up to your face, and take a picture. I’m like, I’m standing right here with a pulse! It’s sweet, though, just…different.”

On actors she’d like to work with: “I had a big tease because [Julia Roberts and I] did a scene together in Mother’s Day, but it was a moment. And Emma Stone I’m dying to work with.”

    Sorry, but she can’t disappear when acting simply because she is a bad actress, a very bad one. She couldn’t do it in the “Cake” movie.
    And Ithink it was a very bad taste the photos intending to copy Angelina’s photos to “Bey The Sea” and “Maleficent”. Let it go, JA!

  • Ethery

    Sad you are full of negative thinking that would only affect your body, your emotions, your brain cells, your health and your actions towards other people around you nani.

    Jen A is like one of those unique very beautiful plants in a garden who was very good according to the Creator of the heaven and earth. I am a creationist who believes in a super powerful intelligent designer of the universe Who made all that I see here on earth including the first human beings Adam and Eve.

    She really presents herself well on the cover of the magazine.
    She did it before recently when she don herself with perfect make up and hairstyle at Critics Choice Awards 2016 night. Then another glowing perfect fashion sense at the premier of Zoolander 2. She is like an ancient Egyptian princess.

    I speculate here an occultist display of an eagle on her left hand with black and white clothing representing the good and the bad side of Lucifer or Shiva or mother Mary or the ancient pagan goddess Ria at one of the pics of the magazine.

    She is one of the mothers in the film.
    It is possible she might be a family heir occultist, a high ranking witch in HW, she seems to imply that in Cake.

    Congratulations Echo Films again for Cake, for the Gold Derby Film Awards 2015 nomination as Lead Actress. That is the prize of a self-disciplined hard working talented witch in HW. You deserved it Jen A.

    The writers of Mother’s Day are like Jesuit agents who lay down their mind set on the scripts these actors are reading to impart a campaign on their hidden agenda of brainwashing the public to the doctrine of Lucifer or distract people from knowing the will of Jehovah the creator of the universe.

    I was thinking now that the high school she attended at Manhattan is under Jesuit management.

    Jen A is a very good actress artist. Talented indeed. She disappears in Cake. I am just amazed with her different brilliant performances in variety of films. As if she was spirit-possessed with variety of spirits or fallen angels influencing her mind and body.

    Jen A won best director in Jury Prize for short film Room 10. The fact is Jen A is a Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress.

    She might not able to write well but she was smart enough to hang around and worked with intelligent writers like her husband and brilliant film makers like Jason Bateman who is a very good director in comedy.

    I am not defending Jennifer with a lie. I am just being realistic and trying to be honest. I felt she is my only living favorite actress until now and I want to speculate positive outlook in life and future great positive possibilities.

    I like her work, her style, her products just the way she is.

  • Ariana

    LOL who would copy anything from the flop Queen Jolie? You do realize By the Sea was a colossal flop and its all Jolie’s fault right? Nobody would ever want to copy that skeleton freak! Let it go loontard!

  • nani

    Who? JA did. LOL. Indeed, she ever does…

  • nani

    to Ethery:
    ?????????????????? What are you talking about? Are you sick?

  • Haven

    Do YOU realize that Jennifer’s last 3 movies went straight to dvd?

    Haters are gonna always throw BTS out there, but seem to forget about the $750 mil for Maleficent.
    Besides, Cake was just as much a colossal flop as BTS, except it made less money. So…..

  • Ariana

    Ja did what exactly? Direct, act , write and produce an epic flop? LOL!

  • Ariana

    LOL Malifcant did not make 750 millon because of Jolie! its a Disney film you retard! Cake atleast made more then 1 million, BTS could not despite the 30 million cost and being produced by Universal. It failed miserably with critics too loon!

  • Ethery

    I am saying this because you Jen A choose to be a witch and suffer the consequences of the last seven plagues on the book of Revelation before Jesus Christ comes or the end of the world. There are no drunkards or gluttons or witches or haters/murderers in the mind at the throne of Yahweh in heaven.

  • Haven

    Oh, that’s right. Your retarded logic dictates that if her movies are a hit, then it’s because of the studio, but if they flop it is all her fault. Sounds fair.
    And check your facts, dumbass. By the Sea only cost $10, just like Cake. It has grossed a little over $3 mil worldwide.
    Cake barely made $2 mil domestic. Can’t really blame the studio for that, because it didn’t have one and Jen had to help pay to get it released.
    Cheer up! Angelina just finished directing her next movie, and Jen got to work Garry Marshall, so everybody wins.

  • Ethery

    You know I like the wholesome movie Switch. So I like the idea that Scott Stuber will collaborate with them in DreamWorks to produce that Office Christmas Party movie.
    Jen A indeed is a value pack.
    They did it without Jen A and that did not work well with them as producers except for Identity Theft.

  • nani

    No, Ariana, Unfortunately JA has a lot of flops in her career… Of course, she cannot direct, write anything and is afraid of producing her own movies. And, whenever she tries to act, she fails and does it badly. She is a failure. And Angie has nothing to do with her failures. JA is what she is…

  • Ethery

    Jen A had learned pretty well through experience many ways how and what will not work with her decisions and actions on her films. She did it with Cake, her patented critically acclaimed low budget film. 50 years from now Cake will make money as net or profits already, if it will not happen 10 years from now.

  • Ariana

    Go fck yourself loon! Jolie has more flops then Jen does and that is a fact. Aniston has not. Jolie is the one who is an epic failure ans actress and as a director. How many awards did By the Sea win loon? How much money did it make at the Bo? Where are all the great reviews for it? please do tell me! Aniston has nothing to do with Jolie being a Camp Event famous for sleeping with married men and a flop as a director.

  • Ariana

    HAHA It did not make 3 million and even if it did, the cost was 30 million, not 10! Go look it up!
    Cake atleast got major nomination, what ddi By the Sea get? What did Broken get?
    Sweetie you are stupid and moronic. Jolie is a loser, she is directing for Netflix because of how poorly By the Sea turned and how she is a stinker as a director. She has no talent in directing and thats why she got demoted to directing flops for Netflix. Your retarded idol and her family have no real relevance anymore.

  • Ethery

    GUYS STOP ARGUING WITH EACH OTHER. There is no winner in arguments. Be peaceful and happy ladies and gentlemen.
    :-)
    “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall inherit the earth.”

  • Haven

    OMG! I had no idea I was debating with a lunatic. Did you just throw her FAMILY into this discussion? What the hell do they have to do with this? What the hell is wrong with you?!
    Take your meds….uggghhh!
    I’m done.

  • Gala

    YES

  • Gala

    Can you read criticies about directiings work from Angelita ? At now she directing because the studios are blind

  • Gala

    Soooo beautifollll…

  • Yvette54

    “Cake atleast got major nomination, what ddi By the Sea get? What did Broken get?”

    Sweetie, “Unbroken” had a production budget of $65 million. The film grossed $115.6 million Domestic, $47.8 million Overseas, and $17.8 million in DVD sales. That’s a Worldwide total of $181.2 million. “Unbroken” made nearly 3-times its production budget. That is pretty remarkable.

  • nani

    Go you…. I only think you should research a bit more about JA’s career life. Why does she (she herself) always say that people think she cannot disappear when acting? Is it may fault? Or Angie’s fault? Or julia Roberts’ fault? Or J.Theroux’s fault? Maybe it’s your fault.
    And please, I have the right no to recognize her as a good actress. Go to see other movies with other wonderful actresses and you will know about what I am talking about. Forget Angie for a moment. She has an Oscar , was nominated for another one (Changelling) and doesn’t want to act by now. So, be worried about your idol.and find out why she is rarely considered to make good films.

  • Ariana

    Wrong , Unbroken had a budget of over 100 million and could not make back its budget at all. It infact failed miserably at the box office
    It was a big flop you idiot.

  • Ariana

    Sure she doesn’t want to act, because she has aged poorly and can’t find work. She chose to go into directing for ego reasons and even that backfired on her. I don’t care about other celebrities. We are talking about Jolie’s failures loon.

  • nani

    No, we are talking about JA’s failures, hen. So many failures! But I don’t want to discuss with you anymore. It doesn’t worth. You are sick and is going down. Bye! Be happy!

  • Media Whore MANiston

    “We work so hard to maintain some sort of life and privacy, why would we intentionally put ourselves out there? I

    Ah really! Your husband opened an instagram account. Hypocrites.

  • https://thewriteway.disq.us = ( ^___^) +

    Yeah, except for that she wishes it were with Brad Pitt, marriage life isn’t that “different.” Prrfft.

    And you need to take your meds too. Unbroken being a hit lol!

  • Ariana

    It made zero money in dvd sales you idiot. Nobody would ever rush to bu an Angelina Jolie directed bomb to the tech store.

  • Ariana

    And Bye bye to Jolie’s directing career. I mean directing for Netflix? LOL!

  • Ariana

    Who would copy Jolie’s ugly face from her flop By the Sea?

  • Ariana

    LOL who would copy anything from the flop Queen Jolie? You do realize By the Sea was a colossal flop and its all Jolie’s fault right? Nobody would ever want to copy that skeleton freak! Let it go loontard!

  • Joy B Angie

    I love this discussion.

  • Ethery

    At least she had a husband she could call her own. I am contented of what I have, I am not envious of her.
    :-)
    It is just so interesting to hear here and from the media that her husband is called her husband, probably is the technician or furniture repairer in their house or the computer guy or media network coordinator of her life to promote and campaign her products and projects.

    Even with that she was fortunate to have a loyal, kind, loving, generous husband who is always set to spend his credit cards to lavish her with gifts, and gave her a practical thoughtful sincere warm encouragement.

    Jen A’s personality is not that of a computer geek or media network savvy.
    She is more into margaritas (addiction) and guacamole.
    :-)

    What I really admire on her most is her business acumen. And her generosity to true church of God thru her tithes and offerings (I hope she already is doing this, honoring God for the blessings she received to manage God’s properties). She is open from a suggestion to launch a home line. That would be very interesting product. Jennifer Aniston designed lampstand or Jennifer Aniston dining table. Wow. I am looking forward to buy a Jennifer Aniston designed glass plates or stainless fork or spoon.
    :-)
    What a fabulous dress and accessories, make-up, hairstyle presentation on the cover of Bazaar magazine. She looks like a doll of perfection via photoshop.

    I am just happy to see her grace the magazine again.
    :-)

    P.S. What are you saying JBA, are you enjoying the arguments?

  • Mayette de Guzman

    Ok, shut up Angie.

  • Mayette de Guzman

    I always luv 2 read articles abt Jen. She’s so witty & inspiring.

  • Ethery

    Yeah, it is so true, I found myself laughing at her remarks to Will Ferrell on the premier night of Zoolander 2.
    :-)

  • Ethery

    What a hefty price of accessories, a 14 thousand dollars necklace.

  • Ethery

    Life is short nani, ask the Creator Jehovah of heaven and earth for peace in prayer, and He will give you peace of mind.
    :-)

  • Ethery

    I would like to apologize if you are offended JBA if I speculate Jen A as a very beautiful witch in Hollywood. She call herself that on the movie Cake.

    Jen A is a good director herself, her husband was too. Her husband writes scripts and an experienced performer in theaters.
    Jen A’s strainer of scripts is not only the smart who knows what she wants Aileen K but her husband as well working behind the scenes. The script that goes to Jen A should always pass the scrutiny of her husband, the ‘Comedian’ movie storyline and the scriptwriters’ ideas is a blur to her camp. I mean with camp is, it is a team.
    This is a triad of scrutiny, the more brains and more counselors the better the result on her decisions on what movie to make and what should be done better than before. The Jen A camp just complement each other
    JTh is a fan of war pictures that only shows how one of the producers of Tropic Thunder is also one of the producers of The Yellow Birds.
    Indeed Jen A was fortunate to be surrounded with brilliant crew and casts.
    Example: In ‘Cake’ the support group scenes are made of brilliant experienced actors, but don’t be fooled for all of them are not dummies, one of them just don’t speak but she played the catatonic mute autistic role well.
    Even the English woman Lucy Punch had changed her accent to California health professional.
    Esmalaya is a brand or tradename of shoes, but Esmalaya said in the movie, “but, I like my shoes.” Did you get the sense of humour? Did you see that there are sharks in the movie ‘Cake’?

    I will speculate now that Jen A is a witch reel and real. Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone was and so was all who make it to the number one Entertainer of the year at Forbes magazines. Including Angelina J. You can’t make it big if you don’t do those occult rituals.

    Lady Gaga who was heir to Madonna’s throne as one of the high priestesses of witches was the obvious witch of Endor in show business. You will know them by the fruits of their thinking and actions or deeds.
