Jennifer Aniston Talks About Breakups and Brad Pitt with Ginnifer Goodwin and Drew Barrymore in Marie Claire

Jennifer, Drew, and Ginnifer Talk Romance and Breakups

Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, and Ginnifer Goodwin premiered He's Just Not That Into You this week, and they recently sat down with Marie Claire to order a few drinks and chat about their movie and their own love lives. Jen even chatted about saving old voicemails from her husband and boyfriends and how the truth always comes out after a breakup. Here's more:

  • On lame breakup lines:
    Drew: "I hate getting 'It's not you, it's me,' because I'm never gonna learn and grow from that. I don't want to live on lies and smoke and mirrors and horseshit. No way."
    Marie Claire: "So you'd really rather have people say something hurtful?"
    Jen: "Well, in a way — I mean, before it gets to desperation time. Before it gets to 'I throw you and the baby and the bathwater out,' let's see if we can work through that."
    Marie Claire: "You know what? I'd rather be lied to."
    Jen: "Oh, I disagree. I want the truth, because it eventually comes out anyway, and then everybody looks like an as*hole."
  • On technology and relationships:
    Drew: "I remember when I first started dating, the big thing was RadioShack answering machines. It was such a huge deal to run home and check your messages. And when you could actually check from another phone? That was the craziest thing ever!"
    Jen: "I still have the cassette tapes of messages from my first boyfriend, my second boyfriend, my husband. . . It's like saving love letters."

To hear what the girls do after a breakup, as well as more photos from the magazine, just


  • On what they do after a breakup:
    Drew: "Head straight for the carbs. Macaroni and cheese. Kraft. Deluxe. The kind with the cheese you squeeze out of a bag that takes at least a month to pass through your body."
    Jen: "I don't eat a lot. I go straight to my girlfriends, though."
    Ginnifer: The first thing I do is call my little sister. She drops everything . . . I'll call and say, "I'm breaking up right now, come get me. She absolutely has picked me up from hookups, with coffee in hand."
    Jen: "Girlfriends — nothing like 'em, man."

It seems like Jen, Drew, and Ginnifer all came away with a new bunch of girlfriends to share their loves and heartbreaks with in the process of making their movie, which hits theaters on Friday.

I thought that the excerpts from the interview were pretty good, but I wish all of the ladies had been there (Jennifer C and Scarlett). The black and white photographs are adorable! I agree with the ladies that its better to be honest in your relationships and break-ups. I was a little surprised that Jennifer said "husband" instead of "ex-husband," but it could have just been a slip of the tongue. But the argument about her not saying "ex-first boyfriend" is moot because that doesn't even make sense, saying "first boyfriend" implies that it was in the past. Keeping mementos from past relationships is nice, but keeping voicemail messages seem a little intimate to me. I don't know, it just seems odd that you would want to listen to your ex-husband's voice, even if your relationship ended on good terms. I don't think this necessarily indicates that she hasn't moved on though...

"...I don’t want to wake up one day and say I had my career that expanded so much longer and I did that many more films and miss out on all those other things in life" Brad´s WOMAN, Angelina Jolie.

jennifer maniston is just as a bigger slut than angjo, how many men has she been with before and after her marriage with brad, i find it strange that vince vaghn was in mr & mrs smith, and right after that got with maniston and i know they filmed together (while brad got with ang). and i love how she helps out male hoes such as john nobody mayer who happend to get with jessicaS, camreon diaz and more oh and didnt she have a fling with camerons new bf yes she did !!!!!!!!!!!

i hope Jennifer A. doesn't get crap for saying she saves her Husbands messages. the media would have a field day with that and take it completely out of context. ugh! Great for them - they hit the right point... your girlfriends are everything!!!

jeez us...everything Jen says gets overanalyzed to death. Who gives a f*ck? She looks happy to me! Without precious Brad Pitt.

everyone need to calm down talk about pms, yes they all look great in the pics, but ive notice a lot of aniston followers who just go over the top about her looks, no come on who are you kidding when you say shes stunning especially next to the likes of scarjo, megan fox, angjo, jenc and countless others. she only tops polls in favours of women because she is average looking. the end

All three women look great and seem happy. They have all had relationships that broke up, not just Jen. I keep things from the past, there are good and bad things I remember but it is fun to remember the good times. It makes you what you are today. You can move on but still have good things from the past that you think of. Angelina talks to her ex's and about them but that doesn't mean she hasn't moved on. Quit reading so much into to everything.

The three of them look wonderful. I love how people act like they know Jen ( and exactly what has happened in her life ) and can judge her when in my experience people who live in glass houses shouldnt throw a stones. And I love all the "professional therapists" on this website. HAHA!! Unless you were there , you have no idea of what happened and the same with this interview. But I notice people will read into anything in order to dog this woman. Its sad.
