Jennifer Aniston For New York Times Magazine

Jennifer Aniston Still Has Fond Feelings For Friends

Last week Jennifer Aniston got sexy for Vogue, but this week we just get a playful head shot for her New York Times Magazine cover. In the article Jen takes a little break from talking about Marley & Me and her personal life, and instead opens up about her other upcoming project and reflects on Friends. Here are highlights:

  • On her upcoming movie: "I wish it was She's Just Not That Into You! Unfortunately, it's He's Just Not That Into You. The other would be more empowering."
  • On watching reruns of Friends: "There are times I don’t even remember that particular show. This is horrible to say, but there are times when I laugh my rear end off. And I get in debates with people who are over and say, 'Friends' is not my thing.' Excuse you!"
  • On whether or not Friends would be a hit show today: "Hard to tell — that was a different time," Aniston says. "Now TV has too much to do with celebrity. We have reality television, where people try to become celebrities...."

Jen also revealed that she was nervous she'd never get any movie roles after being on a hit sitcom for so long, but with all her success it sounds like she's gone above and beyond her expectations.

Well said Ginger! Except, Angelina is the shiny package and whats inside too...lucky Brad. Jenn is empty and can not act at all! ===================================== Jen is the best shes beautiful and the most important thing is inner beauty. Jen Has taught myself and others how to handle things. Has every right to say s she pleases. Remember that was her husband. Jen is definitely way to nice she is over brad and thank god for that. I personally would've blasted them both, no but not Jen shes to kind hearted.. Brad and Angie exploit themselves and children for there own gain. I think they actually put on a show that they love each other. Brad is stuck I'm so glad. I'm so happy Jen got rid of BRAD..Jen can act shes a very smart woman she didn't make all that money but being an A**..

Thanks for the clarification on the line I asked about! I had to read the entire article. And I have to add something else to the ones who are saying that Angelina Jolie is only popular because she's beautiful--Jennifer Aniston married into the A-list crowd and got on all the beautiful lists because of the man next to her. The reason she's still popular is because her ex-husband's name keeps coming into the conversation. She's not known for her acting abilities. She's a nice, pretty and very lucky woman. When Jennifer is onscreen, all I think is "dang, can she play something new?" and "oh, there's boring Jennifer with her boring hair." (Seriously, does she EVER pick it up?!) Angelina is a talented actress. It's rare when I see her onscreen and think "oh, that's Angelina Jolie." All I see is the character she's playing. Yes, her past (kissing her brother, wearing blood around her neck) was crazy, but once Maddox came into her life, she settled down. Nothing happened with Brad and Angelina on set except 2 soulmates connecting. That's just fate. And if Jennifer had any class, she'd have a clause in her interview contracts that says "you are not allowed to bring up Brad Pitt in my presence." Or if they do, she shouldn't sit there and trash his new lady and praise him...she should just say "no comment," and smile that Aniston smile.

Jen is the best, I'll admit some of her roles weren't right for her Jens is Great in comedy, but i also think she can act in different roles. They'll never need a body double for her..

Come on people, let's just say it: Jen is NOT the best actress. I think she is adorable and am absolutely not hating on her but her film choices have absolutely sucked. Hope Marley and Me does well...

(curviest = sexiest)

I think she was considered the top beauty of the Friends girls only AFTER she started dating Brad Pitt, she was also the curviest for a while, before she went A-List. I AM a fan of BOTH A.Jolie and Jen Aniston, Aniston is obviously better at comedy and Jolie is better at drama (in my opinion, not at all based on seeing every single movie by each ever made). With one exception, the Good Girl which was fantastic, Jen's best. To be fair it was something of a quirky comedy which was only a small stretch from the mainstream comedic roles she's had before and since. However I am not a fan of Brad Pitt.
