It's Hats On, Pants Off For Jennifer Aniston in Harper's

Jennifer Aniston forgot her pants for the October cover shoot of Australian Harper's Bazaar. She doesn't need more than a simple black top and hat to accentuate her amazing body and big smile. Inside, she stuck to her usual interview topics like her romantic history and strong stable of girl friends, but she also joked about her successful career and what she would be doing if not acting. Here are highlights:

  • On love: "I think it’s important to have closure in any relationship that ends — from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase. I’m still a romantic. I still believe in love."
  • On being lucky in her career: "I don’t know. I’ve never sat and plotted out how I was going to become successful or famous. I just really wanted to work — to do good work — ever since I was at the High School of Performing Arts [in New York]. My Russian acting coach told me I was a disgrace to the Moscow Theatre. So I was determined to prove him wrong and do good work. I’ve never had my eye on a prize. I really wanted to enjoy the passage of time. Before Friends and the success of that I have a graveyard of sitcoms that, thank god, you don’t know about. I was happy to get a job every year, whether it went on or not."

.

  • On women doing too much: "Oh yeah. I think that’s because it’s just instinctual as a woman to be the caretaker of your home. Women complain that men don’t do enough, but it’s your own fault. You train your man to do nothing. You can’t blame someone for not knowing what his or her job should be if you don’t ask for it right off the bat."
  • On lasting relationships: "I think it’s laziness. I really do. I think a good relationship is about collaboration. That’s the way to go in a relationship. I think you just need to talk to each other. Say what you need. Say what you want. That way it’s not threatening. You just need to say, ‘This is important to me.’ Don’t expect your mate to read your mind."
  • On what she would be doing if not acting: "Sure, I always thought it would be fun to own a restaurant. My family is Greek, and many of them own restaurants and coffee shops, and I make a great baklava with my grandmother’s recipe."
  • On her friendships: "I have great support and great friends. My close friends are important to me, so I make time for them. I’ve always wanted good friendships and they have supported me, through good times and bad. It’s [also] good to have something creative, a creative outlet. I loved having work to go to."

Take it easy #59! These are comments based on her acting abilities as an actor not as a person. The others that were mentioned is a comparison of their abilities as actors opposed to hers. You stated that "she was a comedian for 10 years" that might be your interpretation but it is not share by all. She was one in a cast of four characters she was just part of an assemble that work together very well on television. When you transfer that to a movie screen her comedic talents are just not there.

Jen will never go away. See how interested you all are in her love life, you can't seem to stay out of it. Why does Jen need a man anyway? Isn't a woman's choice to do as she pleases. Jennifer having a great time,never seen her look happier. I strip down anytime with a body like that.

I do admire her fans more than I admire Ms. Aniston but please take off the rose colored glasses, will you! Jen is not an actor, her range as a Thespian is pathetic. She will always be "Rachel Green" unless she hones her craft to a higher degree. If, and that is a big if, she was interested in achieving better roles, she would make changes to her style and get out of her comfort zone and take chances. Instead she is more concern with her apperance than substance. But why should she change, she has money and a lifestyle that she obviously enjoys. For Ms. Aniston acting is just a lark. Some of you call her a great actor. Are you kidding. Here is but a small sampling of some good and great actors: Cate Blanchett, Charlize Theron, Keira Knightley and even as a comedian Quen Latifah scores higher that Jen. Those actors deserve that noun more times over.I am not throwing stones at Ms. Aniston, she doing that herself. Doing a TV sit com for a million years destroyed the chances of her being an actor in the "silver screen". She took that money and still is from all the residuals. None of those "actors" achieved any kind of fame or success after "Friends", it was a mindless TV show.Is time to open that restaurant, Jen.

She doesn't like high at all? I think whoever suggested that is high. Who cares if she has small eyes, I think she is gorgeous!! She's not a skank like britany spears or paris hilton (I love both of them by the way. I think she is a great role model!

Jennifer is a great and talented actress and can carry films.she is so successful in her career and reached a lot.she is terrific comedy star who can acts drama as well as comedy.A good movie is NOT necessarily a box office hit! maybe people understand it someday!! Management was not loss or big flop but another chance to show her acting skills! Agreed,these people ARE offensive.
