Photos of Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman on the Set of The Baster in NYC
Jen Aniston Knows How to Manage Her Career

Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman were back to work on The Baster yesterday, and Jason got another visit from his daughter Francesca between takes. While Jen's got her hands full with her upcoming project, she's pulling double duty promoting Management at the same time. In a recent interview she talked about breakups, projects, and what she'd be doing if she weren't an actor. Here are highlights:

  • On an awkward breakup: "I broke up with a guy and he tried to get back together with me by bringing his mother to a restaurant I worked at and getting down on one knee in the middle of the restaurant. The whole restaurant started applauding and I was like, 'Get up!' It was horrible."
  • On what she'd do if she quit acting: "I would say, probably something in the health industry. It's too late to go to medical school. I'd travel. I'd go back to the years that I never did what I'd wish I'd done, which was travel Europe and backpack. That sounds slightly romantic. What I would do? I don't know. Maybe become a chef. There's so much more to do. It's almost overwhelming. I've gotten to a great place in my career."
  • On how she chooses her films: "You've got to really love the project. I just left home after I built up my house for 2½ years. I moved in for a month and now I'm here. I don't want to do the same thing over and over. It's not about, 'Oh, it's going to be a big hit.' I don't want to do that."

Whether or not Jen chooses blockbusters on purpose, she's proven that she knows a thing or two about making hit movies.

agree with ginger ..... there is something different about her face. i think it's something with the eyes. plastic surgery, maybe? big surprise. she's an actress. that's a hollywood requisite.

I don't think name calling is necessary, Ames. Its very hard to take you seriously with your immaturity level showing. Secondly, Jen doesn't have a back up plan or anything because she isn't gonna do anything but act until she can't anymore and its evident from her response thats the case. Jen didn't say she would go to medical school, she didn't even consider it, she said its to late for that. That's what she flipping said. So I don't care if you think I am judgmental, if you cared to read what I read you hear the same thing I heard. Jen only wants to be an actress and thats the only thing she has ever thought about. So not my problem you don't see that. I never said it was wrong that she only wants to act, all I am saying its clear she never had a back plan.

ElenaEv I can post in any thread I want and I sure as heck don't post in all this woman's threads. Don't like my comments don't read them. Ames, again I have excellent read comprehension skills and she didn't say anything about what she would do after acting did she? She gave a list of crap she has thought about but its not a something where she has actually planned anything. So I stand by my original post.

Something definitely seems different about her face lately. Seems to have come on suddenly, so I'd guess either a health issue or some work, rather than a natural aging process.

LOVE, did you let out a little yelp of joy when you realized you spew your diatribe in the very first comment of this post? YOU are very obviously reading something into what is posted from her interview or adding your own opinions. In no way did she inply that she has no other plans or interests or that travel is the only thing she could think of. Dear God.

LOVE ANGELINA why you keep posting in every single Aniston's post? If she's so bad for your health and nerves, just ignore the posts. Don't read them.

She looks bloated. And I don't think we need daily pictures of her doing this movie. Boring!
