We already got a taste of Jennifer Aniston's EW cover and what she had to say inside, but there's a lot more where that came from. In the article we get an even more candid — and potty-mouthed, ha — Aniston than usual, which is all the more why she seems like the perfect girlfriend. Marley & Me is still a few weeks away, but if the cute factor of this photo shoot is any indication, it's going to be a winner. Love the puppy. Here's more from the interview:
- On Marley & Me: "Sometimes you're not always so thrilled about the movie you're pushing . . . But this is a good one.''
- On her persona: ''Everyone projects their thoughts on you. Everyone's got an opinion. I wish they didn't. I've gotten to the point where, if I focus on all of that stuff, I won't make a move, you know?. . . There's this character — it's like my Hannah Montana,'' she says. ''That's how I feel. There's my Hannah Montana and then there's me.''
- On Team Aniston shirts: ''I can see how that would be flattering,'' she says. ''But that divide-and-conquer thing is stupid. It's just catty. I'm not catty.''
- On people criticizing her movie career: ''It was like, who f---ing s--- in her Wheaties? How do these people get the opportunity to just spew s---? They don't know anything. You know, career choices — you just do what you do. Not everyone's a winner. Not every episode of Friends was great. Not every guy you choose is great. Just across the board, there's so much expectation.''
To see more of what Jen had to say about her movie choices and having a movie coming out the same day as Brad just
- On people's attention: '[Election night] was just so moving, so unbelievable . . . And now what do people do? Read my crap! Everything comes to a halt: 'What did she say?''' She shakes her head, smiling wryly. ''Good God. You have to laugh at it all at the end of the day.''
- On movie choices: ''The girl trying to get the guy — those movies just don't interest me these days. I'd be so bored just doing that. I always think of it as you're walking down the aisle of the supermarket and there's the Fruity Pebbles. I like to do a little Kashi as well, a little granola.''
- On her life: ''It's my history,'' she says quietly. ''It's my memory. That's all it is to me: something that happened, something that was really quite poignant and good in the long run.''
- On Marley coming out the same day as Button: ''Oh, you had to go there! I thought we were out of the woods.'' She sighs. ''I want [Button] to do great. I've seen about an hour of it. It's amazing. Amazing.''
Considering how night and day the two movies are, it shouldn't be an issue, and if Marley & Me has even half the heart that Jennifer does, then it will be perfect holiday fare. As always, she's honest, upbeat, and apparently loves a good metaphor.
