Look out, boys, Jennifer Aniston is on the prowl again, which means that the paparazzi will be following her every move. On the bright side, a source said, “Jen has been in the best mood lately. She is trying to do whatever makes her happy, which includes going on fun dates with interesting men.” Last week, the interesting men included “Cougar Town” star Josh Hopkins and restaurateur Harry Morton. And since Aniston is famously bad at picking dudes who’ll be nice to her, we’ve already helped her decide between these two. [People, Radar Online] Keep reading »
HuffPo, John Mayer is putting you on blast! The prolific Twitter junkie and master of the guitar solo O-face has taken to his blog to slam the blog Huffington Post for printing a story that he calls “equal parts fabricated, cobbled together and misleading.” The story in question: “John Mayer & Jennifer Aniston BACK TOGETHER?” The HuffPo article contends that Mayer and Aniston might be back together based on some comments Mayer made at a recent concert. The problem, Mayer writes, is that Huffington Post took bits and pieces of various things he said over the course of an entire show and made it appear as if it was one statement. Keep reading »
After her latest film, “The Switch,” bombed at the box office, Jennifer Aniston has finally decided to switch things up. Well, sorta. According to Hollywood Life, the actress has signed on for the next Judd Apatow comedy, “Wanderlust,” and will be playing Paul Rudd’s “chain-smoking” wife who “sleeps around” and even goes “topless” at one point in the movie. Way to diversify, Jen! Her box office money-making average might finally raise given that A) Apatow’s movies typically do very well, B) Paul Rudd is a kick-ass co-star, and C) Aniston will be playing a character that seemingly has a little more edge than her usual roles. The latter worked well for her in indie movies like “The Good Girl” and “Friends With Money,” so while this is a comedy, I personally have high hopes that this could be just the vehicle Aniston needs to justify her big-screen salary.
Check out Hollywood Life’s exclusive spoilers about the movie — including why you’ll get to see Aniston’s ta-tas — after the jump … Keep reading »
It needs to be said: Jennifer Aniston literally cannot carry a movie. Her latest, “The Switch,” bombed in its opening weekend, making only $8.1 million at the box office. This is significantly less than the opening weekend numbers for “The Bounty Hunter,” that horrifyingly bad movie she made with Gerard Butler, which was panned by critics and hated by audiences. That movie made over $20 million in its first three days and was considered a big ol’ failure. Aniston’s other recent films have done piss poor too: “Love Happens” made only $8 million its first weekend, while “Management” did less than $400,000. “He’s Just Not That Into You” was Aniston’s last big money maker, but she was only one player in an ensemble; “The Break-Up” was the last movie headlined by Aniston (alongside Vince Vaughn) to be considered a true success, making $39.2 million its opening weekend.

Random almost-not-quite-couple-alert! Back in the ’90s (oh, so long ago), Jon Stewart
and Jennifer Aniston
kind of went on a date! Aniston was on “The Daily Show” last night to promote “The Switch” (luckily, the word “retard” did not slip out during this interview
) and Stewart immediately brought up their past history. Apparently, Stewart asked her out on a date and she showed up with a “posse” of friends. Ahh, a classic “you’re in the friend zone” move. Honestly, I think Aniston fouled up — Stewart is a total catch. And now he’s totally taken. Clip above! [via NYMag.com

was on “Live with Regis and Kelly” this morning to promote her new flick “The Switch.” While they were discussing her recent Barbra Streisand-inspired photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar
, Regis said something about Aniston always “playing dress up,” which prompted the actress to respond: “Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard!” Oof. You can see it go down at 2:00 in the video above.
As a result of this off-handed comment, the poop has, of course, hit the fan. Keep reading »
