I can never decide how I feel toward Jennifer Aniston. On one hand she stars in Object of my Affection, one my favorite movies that I always watch whenever it’s on — but always claim I’m watching because “there’s nothing else on.” (To everyone I’ve ever told that to, I’m sorry, I lied, There’s always something else on. I just love this movie. Let’s blame it on Paul Rudd.)
But on the other hand (remember, we’re working with two hands here), she annoys me with her insistence on feeding into the media’s idea of her as a broken, baby-less spinster still waiting to get her claws back into Brad Pitt.
On the third hand (tricked you, we’re actually working with THREE hands), I loved her performance in the new web series Burning Love and it reminded me that she’s a pretty good comedic actress.
And now on the fourth and final hand, I recieve this news about her teaming up with Smartwater and Justin Therox to produce a short movie poking fun at the fact the media always claiming she’s getting married or having a baby. I’m more confused than ever.
Is this her being funny and finally taking control over how she’s portrayed in the media? Or is this her doing her usual schtick of “look at me and my lonely life!”
I don’t know and that bothers me. I always know how I feel about meaningless celebrity news. My opinion on things that most people don’t care about (the rise of Carly Rae Jepsen in relation to her Canadian heritage) is how I make 90% of my small talk. So trust me when I say this story is really bugging me.
Help me decide how I feel by telling me in the comments if you think this is Jennifer being funny or Jennifer being pathetic. I need an opinion by tonight so I can appropriately harass everyone with my thoughts on Jennifer Aniston during happy hour tonight.
