Jennifer Aniston may play one of titular crappy bosses in the movie “Horrible Bosses.” But until she made it big on “Friends,” she could have been more accurately described as a “horrible employee.” In the press scramble for the movie, several reporters have asked her about her worst jobs and she’s given a few different answers. “I waited a lot of tables, and I wasn’t very good at that,” she told Marie Claire. “I dropped more than one Alpine burger in customers’ laps, and you just do not want all of that Swiss cheese and mushrooms in your pants.” She also wasn’t so hot at bike messengering—a profession I associate much more with tattooed guys than with America’s Sweetheart. “The toughest job I had was being a bike messenger in New York City,” Jennifer shared with Canwest News Service. “I was 19. [My lowest moment was] probably driving into a door that opened. I’m very uncoordinated and extraordinarily klutzy.” [Showbiz Spy, USA Today]
After the jump, more stars who say they were utter failures at the jobs they held before making it big.
I gotta admit, I’m pretty psyched for “Horrible Bosses” to hit theaters, especially after watching this Red Band trailer (NSFW!). For starters, it’ll be refreshing to see Jennifer Aniston stepping outside of her usual “unlucky in love” rom-com schtick, playing a vicious dentist who sexually harasses adorable Charlie Day. Second, I am excited to see Kevin Spacey play a smarmy a-hole again — he did it so well in “Swimming With Sharks.” Plus, Charlie Day, Jason Bateman, and Jason Sudeikis, while looking a little too alike to tell them apart, make for a delightful trio of unlikely “heroes.” I know foul-mouthed comedy isn’t exactly new, but I’m still amped for this one to open on July 8.

Jennifer Aniston debuted her first tattoo this weekend, cursive script on the side of her foot spelling out “Norman.” Norman was Aniston’s dog who died in May at the age of 15. I think this is such a lovely tribute. I have long thought that eventually the only other ink I would get (besides the vaguely regrettable Chinese characters on my back) would be my dog Lucca’s name. I love her and want her with me always, just as Norman is now always walking with Jen. Okay, now I am tearing up. RIP Norman! Is a tattoo of a pet’s name something you would ever get?

Jennifer Aniston hops on the no-pants train for the July cover of Marie Claire. I find this ironic considering that one of the coverlines placed over her reads, “The Trick To Buying Great Pants.” Keep reading »
Remember when Angelina Jolie finally responded to the rumors that she and Brad Pitt had an affair while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston by saying she would never do such a thing to another woman because she saw her dad do it to her mom? That is one of the oldest and best excuses in the book — “That terrible thing happened to me or someone I love and I would never do that terrible thing to someone else!” — and tends to be pretty believable except when it’s not because, really, you never know what you might do when presented with a tempting but amoral conundrum. (Also, whether Brad and Angelina had a physical affair or not, an emotional affair clearly occurred and is that any better? Legalese!) Keep reading »
It appears that Jennifer Aniston may have a new dude in her life—one Mr. Justin Theroux. The two were first seen together in March, at the Chateau Marmont, having dinner with a group of friends. But more recently they have been spotted having dinner solo and even having a sleepover at Jen’s house. Us Weekly calls them “undercover lovers” and says they are “inseparable.” And a source told People this week that on May 27, Jennifer had a shindig for close friends like Courteney Cox and Chelsea Handler, and invited Justin too. “They all had a great time and enjoyed Justin’s company,” the source explained. “He’s edgier than the guys Jen usually dates. She really likes him!”
Might I add that, when he shaves, Justin is smoking hot?
So who is this guy? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
Behold, the new poster for “Horrible Bosses,” the movie where Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman and Charlie Day conspire to kill their toxic superiors. Jennifer Aniston plays Charlie’s boss, a sadistic dentist. Now, I know many people will object to the use of the words “sex crazed” and “maneater” here alongside the image of the cowering guy and might say that this is about dudes being terrified of female sexuality. That’s probably true, but I kind of like that they cast this role with a woman. I mean, a male dentist who sexually harasses his female hygenist is probably the more likely scenario in the real world—but I like something about the role reversal — and the fact that Jennifer went for this rather than more boring romantic comedy fare. Also, can we talk about how amazing she looks as a brunette?
