“I think people just want to laugh… There’s so much going on in the world right now weighing heavy on everybody’s minds and hearts, that you want to just get out there and disappear and be silly and have a laugh. At other people just being silly.” She’s more than happy with her role as the bringer of that lightness. “I’ll sign up for that!” she laughs.
Anyone who knows me can attest that I’m all about laughing as much as possible, probably to a fault. I would have laughing fits as a teenager and my mom would accuse me of being “on something,” which I swear, I was not! Anyway, The UK’s Red magazine interviewed Aniston recently — from beneath the covers in her bed — and somehow made me love her even more. The writer suggested:
…to Aniston that there are two people who endure this pressure for marriage/kids more than anyone else in showbiz: herself and George Clooney. So perhaps she and George should run off together, get married, have three kids in rapid succession and then the world would finally shut up. Aniston laughs uproariously. ‘That would definitely shut up the world!’ she guffaws. “I could call up George, say, “Hon, let’s just get hitched and have kids…” I should take George to lunch and we can figure out how to put an end to all this… Ha! Well… No.”
Red also reported that Aniston spotted Perez Hilton in a parking lot recently and asked him: “Why are you so mean?” (A worthy question, although the answer seems clear: because it pays.)
I also liked what she had to say about aging naturally:
Ageing naturally is, she says, ‘beautiful’ (she used Botox once and hated its ‘hard’ effect), and credits her flawless skin to state-of-the-art serums and a Californian ‘facialist’. Working out ‘every other day’, keeps her in enviable shape, as does a personal yoga instructor. And while she eats primarily ‘really well’, it’s refreshing to hear that Aniston refuses to deny herself wine, coffee, dairy or her beloved margarita-and-nachos nights-out with girlfriends, ‘because then I would be devastated!’
Although 1. I don’t see *any* aging happening for her, and 2. Botox just once? Hmm.
Also, her favorite book is a neuroscience title: The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge.
She’s a bit of a science geek like me. That really sealed the deal.
Lastly I think this is one of the nicest covers of her I’ve seen. She looks natural and relaxed, and more like herself than some covers in the past. And you know, I know her real self so well. If I saw Aniston on the street, I’m quite sure I would run up to her and say, “Hey! What’s up? How are you? You look amazing!” as if she were an old friend I hadn’t seen in ages. Because for real, she is a part of my every day life. The problem is, I’m not part of hers by any means. I can just hope if the scenario arises she won’t call the authorities. Go Jennifer, I heart you.
