Photos and Quotes from Jennifer Aniston in Vogue's December 2008 Issue

Jennifer's Vogue Interview Is Very Cool

We've already seen some highlights of the December issue of Vogue where Jennifer Aniston opened up about John, Brad and calls Angelina "very uncool" (which out of context sounds so lame). Now we have even more quotes and pictures of the actress looking stunning on the beaches of her home away from home, Cabo. The article is timed to promote her movie Marley and Me and as she has done in the past, the dog-lover poses with her adorable corgi-terrier mix, Norman. The article describes a woman who loves to be in love but doesn't need a man to make the happy ending a reality. She also has a lot to say about the men in her life and getting older. Here are more highlights:

  • On her outlook: "You basically watch my life . . . It happens in front of you. And I can protect it and try to control things only to a certain extent. I think what I'm doing now is letting go of the reins a little bit and saying, 'It is what it is.' But there is more to me than just a tabloid girl. This whole 'Poor lonely Jen' thing, this idea that I'm so unlucky in love? I actually feel I've been unbelievably lucky in love. Just because at this stage my life doesn't have the traditional framework to it—the husband and the two kids and the house in Connecticut—it's mine. It's my experience. And if you don't like the way it looks, then stop looking at it! Because I feel good. I don't feel like I'm supposed to be any further along or somewhere that I'm not. I'm right where I'm supposed to be."
  • On Vince Vaughn: "I call Vince my defibrillator," she says with genuine affection. "He literally brought me back to life. My first gasp of air was a big laugh! It was great. I love him. He's a bull in a china shop. He was lovely and fun and perfect for the time we had together. And I needed that. And it sort of ran its course."
  • More on John Mayer: "But you know, it isn't designed. Love just shows up and you go, 'Oh, wow, this is going to be a hayride and a half.' . . . He had to put that out there that he broke up with me. And especially because it's me. It's not just some girl he's dating. I get it. We're human. But I feel seriously protective of him and us. Trust me, you'll never see that happen again from that man. And it doesn't take away from the fact that he is a wonderful guy. We care about each other. It's funny when you hit a place in a relationship and you both realize, We maybe need to do something else, but you still really, really love each other. It's painful. There was no malicious intent. I deeply, deeply care about him; we talk, we adore one another. And that's where it is."

    To see what else Jen had to say about Brad, Sex and the City and turning 40 just

    .

  • More on Brad: "He seems…great? . . . I have nothing but absolute admiration for him, and…I'm proud of him! I think he's really done some amazing things. . . Well, it never was that bad . . . I mean, look, it's not like divorce is something that you go, 'Oooh, I can't wait to get divorced!' It doesn't feel like a tickle. But I've got to tell you, it's so vague at this point, it's so faraway in my mind, I can't even remember the darkness. I mean, in the end, we really had an amicable split. It wasn't mean and hateful and all of this stuff that they tried to create about Brad can't talk to Jen and Jen can't talk to Brad because this person won't allow it. It just didn't happen. The marriage didn't work out. And pretty soon after we separated, we got on the phone and we had a long, long conversation with each other and said a lot of things, and ever since we've been unbelievably warm and respectful of each other. Whoever said everything has to be forever, that's setting your hopes too high. It's too much pressure. And I think if you put that pressure on yourself—because I did! Fairy tale! It has to be the right one!—that's unattainable."
  • On Sex and the City: "I don't know. I don't…like…girls…whining…and complaining…about…wanting a man! I never liked Sex and the City, the kind of thing where women only feel empowered once they find the Man. It is just not up my alley. I don't believe in it. There is nothing you can control about love."
  • On turning 40 next year: "I'm not saying I'm 40. I'm 30-10. I don't feel 40. I don't know what it means. I just know that all of a sudden it's something that's in print next to my name. AND NOW SHE'S 40. It almost feels like some sort of badge of honor in a weird way."

Some of you people are absolutely brutal! "Oh she's ATTACKING Brad and Ang!! Look how BITTER she is!! She's desperate!!" She did not say ONE negative thing! Seriously, is everyone forgetting crazy freak Angelina who used to carry around a vial of Billy Bob Thorton's BLOOD?! And make out with her brother? And all sorts of other stupid, annoying, disgusting things? Get over it.

By the way, she wasn't saying that Angelina falling in love with Brad was "uncool"; she was referring to Angie talking about how she fell in love with Brad while he was still married to Jen. That's the kind of thing Angie should have kept to herself.

I think this whole thing is pretty ridiculous, to be honest. You all are being really mean and petty over two women you've never met and know nothing REAL about. Responding to one of the earlier comments, the reason Brad never gets any of the hate rays that Jennifer seems to have reserved for Angie (and if you really think calling someone's behavior "uncool" is hate, maybe you should get out in the real world and make an enemy or two and see what they call you) it's because Jennifer used to be in love with Brad. They were married, they had a wonderful time together. She doesn't want to hate on him because she's a classy woman and doesn't feel the need to trash a man who was a huge part of her life for a long time. Emotional affairs are more serious than physical ones, period. However, in Angie's defense, it's not like she was playing a villain in a melodrama here. She wasn't TRYING to break up a marriage and she didn't make herself fall in love with Brad, it just HAPPENED, just like Jen said. Angie talking about how she fell in love with Brad while he was still married was a very cruel and insensitive thing to do; she pretty much just rubbed Jennifer's nose in the fact that she couldn't keep him and that was unbelievably rude and classless of her. Furthermore, I agree that you can't really compare the two because they are so different in pretty much every aspect.

AJ fans hate jen because if they had nothing bad to say about jen, they would have to put the blame on brad. why would jen and brad spilt if there was nothing wrong with jen? so, AJ fans just have to put the blame on jen. also, AJ fans know that no matter how much AJ tries with the charity and the perfect family etc, she'd never take jen's place as america's sweetheart.

Above the bullsh*t is easy when you hit, run, and then have friends and fans block and buffer the backlash. Yep, zen comes easy peasy.

I think she is such a class act. She just seems so zen and relaxed. It doesn't matter what battle the media wants to turn this into now..she wins. Hands down, everytime, she is above the bullshit and that is what makes her "cool" and others not so much.

Mesayme: It was you who told people you hate Jen personally. As for as I know..only immature people would come out with things like that, you also attack people, your comment about people can't compare gay marriage to racism was being criticized and you couldn't take it. Enjoy hating.

it stood out to me too that jen had bad stuff to say about angelina but not brad. (plus she goes on about their warmth and continued contact (!)) its understandable that she'd feel that way (against angelina) and i probably would too. but it is easy for outsiders to see that its brad's 'bad' moreso than angelina's. all of the people saying, 'you wouldn't like angelina if it happened to you', think of it this way, your friend/sister's husband falls for a girl at work, who's fault is it? no matter how manipulating, cunning, seductive or tricky a wife perceives the other woman to be, it is the man's choice and 'fault.' unless perhaps the 'home-wrecker' actually made up lies and interfered secretly in the married couples communication, soap opera style.

Just read earlier that some at the Oprah taping said Jen is now attempting to back peddle her words, and saying the magazine did her dirty. She supposedly apolgizes for it getting out of hand. Oprah has the mag in her hands when discussed. I can NOT wait for this show and Brad's.

To further counteract the FALSEHOOD that Obama did not want Brad or Angie's support because of public media perception of them: [celebuzz.com] _______________________________ The Dem and GOP candidates are wooing Brad's gal. Uh, guys? That's not what people mean when they say "swing vote."Posted on 08/12/2008 7:00 AM by Celebuzz Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama have one thing in common with every other man on the planet: They both desperately want Angelina Jolie. Variety magazine's Wilshire and Washington blog reports that both camps have made overtures to the new mom, seeking her political endorsement. Jolie is still in the undecided category—and neither candidate should count her support as a given. "People assume I'm a Democrat," Jolie has said. "But I'm registered independent and I'm looking at McCain as well as Obama." Earlier this year, Jolie shocked many by penning a Washington Post op-ed calling for a sustained U.S. presence in Iraq. Her final choice, Jolie says, will depend "on issues like international justice, refugees and how to address the needs of children in crisis around the world." The bipartisan struggle for Jolie's thumbs-up is yet one more chapter in the ongoing debate over what role celebrities should play in the election. McCain issued a campaign ad criticizing Obama for his celebrity-like following, but he also gratefully accepted Hills blonde Heidi Montag's endorsement. And Scarlett Johansson raised eyebrows by revealing that she had engaged in an e-mail correspondence with Obama—though the fact that you even know that means you're a sexist pig. In the meantime, Paris Hilton has declared that she will not affiliate herself with any party that doesn't pay her at least 40 grand to attend and set her up with a sweet gift bag.

Hmmm, I read about this somewhere else (media is really pushing the "uncool" comment) and thought that there might be a storm on Popsugar, lol!"She's given Brad a pat on the back, but Angie a smack. She says "But you know, it isn't designed. Love just shows up," but takes issue with Angie speaking of the location were she and Brad's feelings first emerged. What is she finding uncool? That love that wasn't designed showed up for them while making a movie, or that Angie said it?"I agree completely with this post; she definitely contradicts herself here. If she really believes that love isn't designed, then she would truly hold no negative feelings towards either Brad or Angelina and would find nothing "uncool" about anything said or done by either of them. Of course, it's a little different when it happens to you, isn't it? I don't think she's bitter per se, but I'm sure she's still stinging to some degree. It can't help how publicly this divorce was played out. You couldn't pay me enough to live in a fishbowl these three live in. And, I don't think Angelina should have publicly detailed her growing affection for Brad either (although her comments were benign), but that's just Angelina -- frank and too damn honest for her own good.I think Jennifer is a talented comedic actress in great shape, but the fascination with her beyond that always baffles me a bit. Wait, I retract that -- my girlfriend and I concluded a while back that Jennifer Aniston's unexplainable popularity stems from the fact that she is indeed a homely woman -- in essence, she gives regular, average, non-descript women all across the world hope and validation. She makes them feel that under the right circumstances, if the moon shines just right, if the planets align just so -- they can live and be treated like Beautiful People too. Jennifer Aniston is the President of Average Chicks Everywhere. I do think people should stick to posting their opinions though -- someone here erroneously stated that Obama did not want Brad and Angie to endorse him because of "mixed public opinion" on them. That is completely, utterly untrue, and there is not even an ounce of evidence even vaguely supporting this irresponsible remark. You are mixing up Lindsey Lohan stories with Brad and Angie. Get the facts straight, please. Please don't go around here spewing falsehoods in support of your "Jennifer cause." Angie was at one point, even considering supporting McCain (which I find utterly disdainful, but hey, she ain't perfect!). I did find it amusing that Brad Pitt and Barack Obama are distant cousins though. Ain't that a kick!Lastly -- if your man tells you that Jennifer is hotter than Angelina, he is telling you that because he knows that is what you want to hear. Period. Sorry to burst your bubble.
