Jennifer Aniston Had a 2008 Full of Love, Friends, and Health

Jennifer Aniston graces the cover of People's Best of 2008 issue with a puppy draped over her shoulders and a smile on her face. It's been an incredible year for Jennifer romantically and personally, and she's ending it with a bang releasing Marley & Me. In the magazine she answers questions from fans, including a cute one about your favorite celebrity pet of the year, Norman. Here's highlights:

  • On Norman and Dolly being jealous of Marley: "Oh, play it for me, Misti! Dolly didn't travel to Miami because she is too young at 2 ½, and to put her in a trailer didn't seem fair. All Norman wants to do is just lie at my feet, which is what I like. [The trainers] were strict about letting the Marleys play with other dogs. But there was no jealousy because Norman is very secure. Norman is now 13, but even back [as a puppy] he was as cool as a cucumber. He's just a person in a dog suit."
  • On favorite holiday traditions: "My favorite tradition is picking out my tree and then the tree trimming. I just got mine! And there's eggnog, Christmas carols, usually chili, cupcakes. I've cooked the chili – my mom has a great recipe. But now I have a lovely lady cook it because I want people to be happy!"
  • On remarrying: "I don't know! I honestly don't know. I'm not against it. Maybe (smiles). Maybe, sure."
  • On turning 40: "I'm very excited. I had more of a panic going into 30. I think you realize that it just gets better. When they say youth is wasted on the young, it's so true. Oh my God, what I wish I'd known when I was 30!"
  • On getting over bad days: "You just have to love your life. I have my health, I have my friends, I have my loved ones. I'm extremely lucky."

Methinks Feb. 11 can't come soon enough so Jennifer can stop answering questions about her 40th birthday, but of course she answered with grace and her famous sense of humor. As for the holidays, between her chili and John's baking sounds like they've got the makings of some new traditions of their own.

Much better interview, but I think it's because the questions actually came from the fans. Reporters always try to drum up publicity and controversy so the mags will sell so they ask ridiculous questions that we've heard ad nauseam. That's why I like this interview better. I really hope she does get remarried again, to the right guy this time, and has the children she seems to want to have.

some people think you need a man to make you complete. it's sad...

Uh, where does it say she's alone? She has friends, family. Nothing sad about being single, at any age, if that's what 7R is referring to. Wow, open your eyes: this isn't the 60's anymore.

So everyone who is single at her age is sad? There is nothing wrong with this interview and I hope the trend of reporters asking about her ex will end.

I don't like her, but even I have to say I think it's annoying that such a big deal is being made out of her 40th birthday.

She is 40 and she is talking about dogs and trimming trees alone. Sad. The photoshop work is awful, her body looks so strange.

the interview was good..but as well as you bluesteyes I don't see anything wrong about the others interviews!..but everyone has his owns opinions.

yeah i can see it being taken out of context reporters do that stuff all the time but im still a bit iffy about the comment
bluesteyes bluesteyes 8 years
i know junkies but i still didn't see anything wrong :) I don't think she said it to gain anything, this is the same hype as jolie calling her baby a blob, many people were upset by it but i think it was taken out of context.

bluesteyes I think people felt that her other interview was bad because she mentioned her ex husbands children and used their names to gain attention. To me personally I felt it was inappropriate, say what you want about angie and brad but leave the innocent children out of it.
junkies_la junkies_la 8 years
its like she is saying the same thing over and over again and i thought she was already 40

Oh yes her head is massive in that picture. And about the interview, i don't understand why people are saying it's much better, I don't see anything wrong with her past interviews. Especially that one where she mentioned the source. It's called honesty.

Is it just me or does her head look gigantic compared to her body in that pic? I know she's thin but it kinda looks like they went overboard with the photoshop. Or maybe it's a bad angle? I don't know, something seems off.

well i like that all the questions weren't around brad/angie since that's truly overkill sometime. i think that she's had a good year and that's all that she can ask for at this stage in her life.

She looks great and happy. Very good interview. Maybe the people need to ask the questions all the time.
