The imaginary Jennifer Aniston/Angelina Jolie competition for the world’s affection continues. Jolie knows a lot about world issues and stuff, so Aniston has hit back by having an interview published in Newsweek.
In the Newsweek article Seven Things I’d Rather Talk About… Than the Men in (or Out) of My Life, Jennifer Aniston takes the opportunity to air her hard-hitting views about the world in a Serious Publication. And what did she choose to talk about? The fact that she probably doesn’t cry as much as we think she cries. Smart move…
Jennifer Aniston (DVDs) has a reputation. She’s seen as a flake, as the
sad-eyed, self-obsessed woman who has spent every second since her
separation from Brad Pitt being a chain-smoking wreck who has to scream at
the sea to ease her pain. But that’s apparently not the case.
Having a full-on emotional breakdown during a Vanity Fair interview
probably didn’t help Jennifer Aniston all that much – crying and
blubbering through your first post-split interview tends to give the
impression that you’re, you know, a little unstable.
And in Newsweek, Aniston got the chance to hit back. She said (in point 3, entitled How Little I Actually Cry):
"I’m pegged as a crier, aren’t I? I was upset about the Vanity Fair
article. I had one moment when I got emotional because I hadn’t sat
down with an interviewer since this whole debacle took place. It
happened for a second and then it was over. But I do cry when I watch
shows about babies being born. And I can turn on Terms of Endearment
at any point and start crying—or The Champ, with Rick Schroder."
See? She doesn’t cry a lot. Just at films. And baby programmes. And
interviews. Quite a lot of things, really. In fact, Jennifer probably
cries more than we thought she did.
But that’s just the tip of her wisdom iceberg. Aniston imparts all
kinds of crazy knowledge throughout the Newsweek article, including:
"I had never done a thriller before."
"Nothing is worse than a guy with an eye job—and don’t think we can’t tell."
"Where are all the sitcoms?"
"How about that indictment?!"
"I also want to know why Steve Perry left Journey."
