Over the weekend, Jennifer Aniston accepted a trophy for her contributions to cinema from Women in Film. But there was something more laughable than her getting applause for artistic achievements like “Marley & Me.” When Jen took the stage, in a strapless silver Prada dress, to accept the prestigious Crystal Award for “expanding the role of women in the entertainment industry,” Aniston said:
“I kind of noticed something a couple years ago that there seemed to be this strange parallel to the movies I was doing and my life off screen. It started with ‘The Good Girl,’ then that evolved into ‘Rumor Has It,’ followed by ‘Derailed,’ and then there was ‘The Break-Up’.…So if any of you have a project titled ‘Everlasting Love with an Adult, Stable Male …”
Um, Jen, no one is giving you an award for your love life. What kind of acceptance speech for your successful career was that exactly? But the audience was chuckling. Now, we here at The Frisky are all for self-deprecating humor, however, it begs the question: Was this Jen Aniston laughing at herself or is she the joke? [People] Keep reading »
It’s Wednesday, which means the week is half over and you’ve made it through hump day. But even more importantly, new ‘bloids just hit newsstands. Lest you have to actually buy them, here’s the juiciest and, uh, most ultra true stories from each. Keep reading »
If you’ve ever watched “Rock of Love,” you’re well aware that dating a rock star is passe. Ditto for athletes—who wants a dude whose bicep measurement is bigger than his IQ? No, there’s a new type of guy to lust after—Washington politicos. The Obama administration is ushering in a new throng of young, brilliant, and (dare we say) extremely hot politicians, and Hollywood’s leading ladies are taking notice. Rashida Jones, of “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” is currently dating President Obama’s chief speechwriter, Jon Favreau. Sure, he may be the one who drunkenly groped a Hillary Clinton cut-out during last year’s primary, but this dude is (a) adorable and (b) has one of the highest ranking jobs in the country even though he’s only 27. The couple made their first appearance at the White House Correspondents Dinner and have since been spotted cuddling at a hip Georgetown bar. [Celebitchy]
Then there’s “Private Practice” star Kate Walsh, who’s been getting cozy with Sean Smith, deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Homeland Security. (You know he’s important because his title is so long.) The two were apparently “phone friends” for months, but recently went public. Sean reportedly sent her flowers the day after the Correspondents Dinner to thank her for being his date. Awww…sweet.
We hope other Hollywood ladies catch on. Here are a few more civil unions we have in mind. Keep reading »
Jennifer Aniston looks sneaky on the set of “The Baster.” [New York City, 5/13/09] Keep reading »
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi beat out Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for the celebrities that moms would trust with their children, according to a poll of 10,000 moms by Parent Dish. Ellen and Portia scored 31 percent, while Jennifer Aniston came in second with 22 percent. Her nemesis, Angelina, got 18 percent, and Oprah Winfrey got 9 percent. The difference in votes between Jennifer and Angelina was probably more of a popularity contest, but I totally get why moms wouldn’t trust Oprah — she probably doesn’t even care for her own dogs.
Ellen seems to be a rather responsible, trustworthy person, so I get why she was chosen, but there are so many others we would have picked to take care of our hypothetical kids. And definitely some we wouldn’t. Keep reading »
