Jennifer Aniston Ironically Offers Relationship Advice


Harper’s Bazaar is running an article on Jennifer Aniston in its October issue in which the actress shares her perspectives on relationships, staying together and where it all goes wrong.

The ex-wife of Brad Pitt, ex-girlfriend of Vince Vaughn and more recently of John Mayer tells the magazine that she knows what makes a relationship fail.

“I think it’s laziness,” she says. “I think a good relationship is about collaboration. I think you just need to talk to each other. Say what you need. Say what you want. That way it’s not threatening. You just need to say, ‘This is important to me.’ Don’t expect your mate to read your mind.”

And, you know, I tend to agree with a lot of what she’s saying here.  Jen also says that women who are doing all the cooking and cleaning have no right to complain.”I think that’s because it’s just instinctual as a woman to be the caretaker of your home. Women complain that men don’t do enough, but it’s your own fault.  You train your man to do nothing. You can’t blame someone for not knowing what his or her job should be if you don’t ask for it right off the bat.”  I think most women feel that they shouldn’t have to ask; the guy should just know.  It doesn’t work that way.  Ask.

For a refreshing change, the closest Jen came to talking about her husband ex-husband, Brad Pitt, was in speaking of closure.  “I think it’s important to have closure in any relationship that ends – from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase,”

  • What has happened to this site lately? Why are there so few posts? It seems that once you had such a success it would be nurtured; instead it feels like it’s going down the tubes.

    • I agree. What is going on? I hate to jump on the proverbial bandwagon with all the posters who are asking the same questions, but it appears obvious something is not as it should be.

  • i have been saying this for a little while now!!! Sasha needs to wake up and get her blog back to being relevant. Those of you who need another outlet, I like the fab life & gawker. ONTD is also a good one!

  • I like how the paragraph about Aniston and “romantic closure” ends with a comma. It’s like, “…AND?”

    Haha, ok.

  • This whole Jennifer Aniston is single fixation has me flummoxed. Society can’t handle a single woman who is happy. And she seems pretty together, no drunken stumbling or rehab stints. She’s just working and making money and moving through her life, being without a man isn’t holding her back in the least- why is it so important?
