Jennifer Aniston Is Learning to Say No to Movie Roles

Jennifer Aniston Is Learning to Say No to Movie Roles

Jennifer Aniston tries to keep a low profile in a big hat and sunglasses while heading into a skin care spa on Friday afternoon (March 11) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 47-year-old Mother’s Day actress recently opened up to Harper’s Bazaar about how she chooses movie projects now and how she feels about some of her roles in the past.

“I really have to love something to be leaving my home, my dogs, my husband. The older you get, the more you realize that,” she explained.

Jennifer later added, “There was a time when I worked and worked and worked. I loved it. I’m trying to be better at [saying no]. I’m a bit of a people pleaser. I’ve got to stop. Some of the movies I’ve made, I bow my head in slight shame over.”

FYI: Jennifer is carrying a bottle of smartwater sparkling.

  • Mayette de Guzman

    Luv Jen! Luv reading any article abt her, it makes my day.

  • Joy B Angie

    Jen is an Actress – not a clairvoyant.
    She can’t predict the final result of project.
    Script looks interesting and she is ready to say “Yes”;
    but she can’t control other people.
    Director and studio is responsible for the final result.

    “Cake” is a very strong story to make a GREAT movie,
    but there is no Director in this project.
    So sad.

  • Joy B Angie

    You have a trailor of new movie,
    you have the articles about this movie,
    you have your friends who watched this movie,
    you have your brain (I very hope) to decide.

  • Gala

    I love this woman

  • Esmeralda

    One of the most laziest actresses in Hollywood

  • Joy B Angie

    You can’t earn $ 150 M being lazy.

  • JayR

    She’ a bundle of unbelievable cuteness and talent, but dressing like the grim reaper doesn’t do much for the definition of that opening statement. I’m sure she fools know one in LA or NY with those far out getups. I don’t believe for one moment Jenny is turning into a homely. Besides being a entertainer, she’ too good of a Business women to be twitting her thumbs at home. Super Fan

  • JayR

    She’ gives you a refund back every year in the way of heavy taxes. It’s not her fault you don’t see any of that money because of the politicians you might elect.

  • JayR

    Right on Joy, but that 150 is from 5 or 6 yrs. ago and it’s probably pretty low by now. The point is, Jen is far from lazy, she is a type A person making it impossible.

  • dede

    Thin lips a big nose

  • Joy B Angie

    Are you talking about your mom ?

  • dede

    No. Yours

  • Joy B Angie

    My mom is a former model.

  • dede

    OK you whack job. Model on

  • dede

    A bundle of what?????…she is 47 years old. You sound silly

  • Joy B Angie

    A bundle of big nose – what else ?
    This is a reason you are on her thread.

    Every surgery makes you nose bigger.
    You may try too – if you have money.

  • dede

    Just stop talking. You sound crazy. Stop.

  • Joy B Angie

    You say her nose is big so who is crazy ?

  • dede

    Don’t you see that huge thing hanging off her face. She looks like Dustin Hoffman sister. Now quit responding to me. Am sick of seeing your name and Her name on my devices. Uggg

  • Joy B Angie

    I see a cute nose on her face.
    If you are sick to see my name,
    stop writing stupid points.
    May be you need glasses.
    And a bigger brain.

  • dede

    Most of Jennifer’s fans are whack jobs. You and that other one are by far the worst. Here I am aurging with a Lunatic..

  • Joy B Angie

    Stop arguing with Lunatics
    and take your meds.

  • dede

    Your crazy and ignorant. Bad combination. Am done with this conversation

  • Joy B Angie

    Don’t say JA’s nose is big.

  • dede

    Your right. Its huge. That’s better.

  • Joy B Angie

    You need 2 glasses.
    No, 3 glasses. That’s better.

  • Ethery

    JBA you are right on, I think the same way. When people are complaining, irrational prejudice and being negative towards Jen A, I don’t get it, why they need to do that on Jen A’s thread unless they have an unstable mind.
    *******************************************************************************

    Out of topic:

    For us Seventh-day Adventist Christians we could see the hand writings written on the wall base on the fulfillment of prophecies Ellen G. White wrote, that Jesus Christ’s second coming is very near, we mean the end of this world, planet earth will return to its void abyss state without inhabitants or human beings or animals.

    Fire, brimstones, and 75 lbs hailstones as the last 7th plague prior to Christ appearance at the sky is soon to take place, these final events will occur after Sunday Law observance was enforced through the legislation of the lawmakers of the United States and other countries will also follow.

    I am just being realistic, you could search these facts, its everywhere right now, most people including Pope Francis wants to make Sunday Law observance be enforced as an answer to climate change. That the solution to these calamities to appease god is to observe Sunday mass sacraments.

    Never in the King James Holy Bible wrote about 1st day of the week which is Sunday to be a holy day. Jehovah Creator of the universe made the seventh-day holy and is the true Sabbath base on the fourth commandment written on Exodus 20:8-11. The divine God Creator of heaven and earth set apart the seventh-day sunset Friday to sunset Saturday and sanctified the time as holy hours.

    When to Seventh-day Adventist Christians considered their LORD is Adonai, Michael the archangel, the Creator of heaven and earth is Jesus Christ according to the book of John chapter one on New Testament of the King James Version Holy Bible. These occultists considered Lucifer as the lord god base on the writings in a book secret doctrine and teachings of high priestess high ranking occult founder of Theosophy named Helena Blavatsky .

  • Ethery

    PEOPLE ARE THESE the PREPARATIONS we need to do for the second coming of Jesus Christ at the sky?
    Time is running out. Imagine today, we never know if we are still alive tomorrow. Consider each waking moment as your last day here on planet earth.
    Study your King James Holy Bible folks to know Jehovah the Creator of heaven and earth, and start to have a consistent relationship with the LORD Jesus Christ as your personal Savior thru unceasing prayer and meditation.
    Then asked the Father of heaven and earth for the faith of Jesus that works righteousness in you. For salvation is a gift, sanctification is also a gift. God will cover you with the robe of righteousness of Christ if you asked Him in prayer.
    In the name of Jesus Christ you need to ask Yahweh for God the Holy Spirit to dwell inside you. For God the Holy Spirit will change you from character to character into the image and likeness of Christ’s character.
    But you need to undergo baptism first thru water immersion at His true church here on earth. A male ordained Seventh-day Adventist pastor should baptize you for you to be born again Christian.
    Baptism thru water immersion is like a marriage to Christ, without it, I don’t think you could enter heaven.
    Without heaven, no eating of the fruit of the tree of life,
    no fruit of the tree of life, NO ETERNAL LIFE base on what is written on the King James Holy Bible. See that for yourself as you search and study these on the Holy Bible.

    JBA, that terror-attack in Brussel
    had really shocked me !
    And it happened on Reese´s 40th Birthday, the 22th march.
    Thus, I couldn´t be happy with Reese at theat day. That terror-attack made me too sad at that day.
    Today, I first made the posts for Reese
    and her birthday.
    ***
    I´m thinking at the song
    “Living on the edge” of Aerosmith.
    Steven Tyler sings: “What´s going wrong with the world today (or: What´s going on with the world today) ?”
    Some really intelligent people should think now very exactly about what to do in order
    to stop this word wide terrorism.
    Here my aspects, that must be examinated more exactly:
    1. The western culture does not fit to the islamic culture. The islamic culture still
    surpresses the women. The islamic culture still surpresses homosexuals.
    2. Did the USA intervene without facing the consequences? They left Iraq and now there is chaos and brutality. The base for the growth of terroristic organisations like the IS. Could it had been better, if Iraq still would had their mofo Saddam Hussein ?
    3. The global weapon-industry is a mess,
    because, there is not enough transparency about the ways the weapons go !
    4. As long as refugees can´t be integrated in countries like Belgium, they can lost their hope and can get brainwashed by the IS and finally they bomb thereselves.
    5. Are there shadow-aspects of the
    western culture, which should be eliminated, without loosing its freedom ?
    (for example “sexualized advertising”,
    internet-sites for “cheating”, women in too
    short bikinis at the beach, nudity-zones at certain beaches in Europe, satire about Mohammed (as a sign for not respecting the muslime religion?))
    6. Assad surpresses Syria. He likely used the chemical weapons. Why the hell did the USA did not intervene EARLY
    enough. Assad had the chemical bombs.
    But Saddam Hussein did not have chemical weapons at all !
    The answer: The USA this time was afraid of the consequences, if they had intervene too early. But that behaviour had a new
    consequence: Every instable country is an open door for terroristic organisations, that oparate in a global network.
    As the USA did not intervene EARLY ENOUGH, the IS creeped into Syria and
    rised like a plague. But probably the same sh*t could have happened too, if the USA had intervene early enough and had eliminated the government of Assad.
    Then Syria have had probably the same or a similar INSTABILITY like Iraq.
    ************************************************
    And terrorists come creeping into a county, whenever there is INSTABILITY.
    ************************************************
    And that seems to be a dilemma.
    Terrorism is a global network.
    Thus, the whole world must hold together and fight against terroristic organisations all around the globe.
    7. Hopeless young people are the ones,
    who are brainwashed by the
    propagandists of the IS.
    It´s about time to help all that young hopeless people to find the aspects, that make them (the hopeless young people) happy again. That´s the fight against
    poverty, criminalism, discrimination and drugs.
    8. The process of destabilization of a
    country/nation (within itself) must be seen
    early enough. Then this process could be
    stopped. And then the terrorists can´t come and rise like a plague in such a country.
    9. The question is: Is Putin a “stabilizer” or a “destabilizer” of countries ?
    Is he able to see the consequences of his actions ? If Putin destabilises Ukraine,
    then terrorists similar to the IS will creep into that nation too.
    Because destabilization is a synonyme for hopeless people, that search for leaders.
    And some of them decide for the wrong new leaders – like the propagandistic terrorists.
    10. Other BIG Nations like CHINA
    must participate in the global fight against
    terrorism – becaue terrorism is a global
    phenomenon. They can´t look away !!
    GLOBAL PROBLEMS NEED A GLOBAL
    (= international) SOLUTION !!!
    ***
    Enough aspects to discuss for.

    Have a nice day and a nice dream of a
    peaceful world, JBA and Ethery !

    Thanks, DRF, peaceful world is a thing
    we need most of all – you are right
    as usual.
    * * * * *
    Shock is exactly what Putin wants.
    I have no doubt Brussels attack
    is result of the activity of terrorists
    concerned with Putin.
    Let’s wait a little and we shell receive
    a confirmation.
    * * * * *
    His goal was to become an Obama’s
    talks partner to discuss sanctions
    agaisnt Russia.
    That’s why he started bombing Syria.
    He wants to look like a “big player”
    on the worlds arena.
    * * * * *
    Putin tried to destabilize Europe across
    the refugees wave, but it’s not so easy.
    So he continues explosions in the big
    European centers.
    It’s his old hobby (to install a bomb
    in to the plane, house, airport, stadium, etc.) to reach the political goals.
    So Brussel is a continuing of the Paris.
    * * * * *
    Of course his efforts are unsuccessful.
    Reducing the oil prices kills Russian economy very fast no matter what.
    It’s a good main news for the world.
    * * * * *
    Thanks God and Obama.
    * * * * *
    Russia is tired of Putin’s policies, too.
    I guess he will be killed inside of the Kremlin in 2016 or 2017.
    * * * * *
    Russian KGB has many faces (masks)
    and is a #1 provoker of destabilization.
    Destroying Russia Bolshevik regime
    is a main task for the world, because it uses every problem of our life as a weapon against us:
    * * * * *
    You are right: IS is a global network
    and it can survive only thanks to the mess, disorder and injustice.
    So honest people must support a just
    and transparent order everywhere.
    No mess – no terrorism.
    * * * * *
    That is why positive art (and movie industry especially) is so important now.
    People are lazy to read books,
    but they still watch movies.
    * * * * *
    So let them watch just nice movies
    with nice actresses like Reese, JA and other.
    * * * * *
    Have a nice day, DRF, JA looks gorgeous no matter what !

  • America’s Sweetheart

    She is too cool..

    Brad and Angie will be announcing their divorce at the end of Summer!! He is done with her! Yipes!! The trolls that guard their dirty brothel will go out of their minds!

  • Joy B Angie

    Brad is not stupid – he got his marriage is result
    of hug manipulation.
    No great love, no great family, no great movies.

  • Sami Snail

    Lol, keep dreaming, as you have for ELEVEN YEARS! It is Aniston and Theroux that are in a phony marriage.

  • Sami Snail

    You must be talking about his marriage to Aniston, the one he was deceived and manipulated into marrying by Aniston’s LIES about starting a family, which she knew he desperately wanted. She LIED to him. That means she DECEIVED HIM INTO MARRIAGE. Aniston had no great love for him, and now she has no family, no great movies, and no Oscars. Unlike Brad who has a WIFE he ADORES, 6 CHILDREN – a FAMILY Aniston cheated him on, OSCAR-WINNING MOVIES. He and Angelina are on top of the world and Brad has moved on from his sham marriage to Aniston the master manipulator who deceived him into marriage. He and Angelina have their rewards. Aniston has a bought ‘husband’ that she homewrecked and stole off Heidi Bivens, who cannot STAND to be on the same coast as his wife. I have to laugh at Aniston. She is a DISASTER. Her life, is a total sham and a disaster. Just desserts.

  • Sami Snail

    Bwhahaha She has never had her pick of roles, no one offers her any serious roles, so she cannot turn down any roles that she isn’t offered.

  • Sami Snail

    Kardashians do. Trash sells. Aniston is trash who cannot act her way out of a bag. Most of her fortune comes from her endorsements.

  • Cheyenne

    How long has it been since she’s had any offers to turn down?

  • Joy B Angie

    Actually Jen didn’t act shameful roles, like many others.
    Fortunately.

  • Cheyenne

    All she does is play Rachel Greene over and over. Somebody needs to tell her that hair-twirling isn’t acting.

  • Joy B Angie

    Someone who is a well known Director….
