Ready? Set? Bug your eyes out, flare your nostrils, and slightly part your lips. Got it? Good. Then you’ve got Jennifer Aniston‘s signature face that is seen somewhere in every. single. photo shoot. ever. Congratulations!
So here are a few choice quotes from Jen’s latest interview with InStyle magazine, and if you can also say “vanilla” along with the above facial contortionist accomplishment, then you probably are Jennifer Aniston. And if that’s the case, lay off lady. I have good lawyers, too, and last I checked, it’s a free country. We’re still allowed to say what we want to a certain extent, right?
In the interview, Jen talks about her life’s second passion (no, “not” her boyfriend, “directing), a Greek cooking trick that she’s not sharing, and probably ending up a crazy cat-lady recluse because she says that leaving the house is a risk.
Jennifer on her inherited culinary skills:
“I’d love to say I’m an accomplished cook, but I don’t have any signature dishes. I’m good at breakfast – I make great eggs. My father gave me a little recipe. It’s all in the seasoning. But it’s a Greek secret. I won’t give it away!”
Jennifer on what she finds to be the public’s most annoying preconception:
“Which one? There are so many. I would say the triangle with my ex-husband – and that there’s a feud there. It’s constant. It’s a story headline that won’t go away, but it’s a money thing – [people make money off] a story that has nothing to do with reality.”
On copying every current boyfriend’s style (yes, EVERY. Don’t you remember when Brad Pitt went all hippie-chic a few years back and to complement his style, Jen donned dreadlocks for awhile):
“First of all, he [boyfriend Justin Theroux] has great style – it’s very specific, and it has been his style forever. Has it influenced mine? No, but I know people say it has.’Oh, look, you’re dressing alike.’ And I think, no I’m not. I’ve had this jacket for three years!”
Sure. It’s just that she hadn’t worn it ’til she realized that it matched her boyfriend’s.
Jennifer on what she’d do if she ever left acting (ahem, Angelina Jolie):
“Directing. I was very proud of producing and directing for the beautiful project ‘Five.’ Or I’d love to be a dermatologist. I’d be so obsessive about it. I’m fascinated by skin, products, and lasers. I go on the Internet and read all about it. I call it ‘laser porn.’”
Jennifer on risk-taking and paranoia and what her life’s biggest risk has been up to this point:
“I’m not sure. Just walking out of the house can be a risk!”
So, there you have it, ladies and gents. I’m waiting and wondering when we’re going to get a real, honest, candid interview from Jennifer Aniston, but I’m afraid this is it. In this case, what you see really is what you get, and if that’s a disappointment to you, let me tell you – you’re not alone.
Hey. At least she’s photogenic, right? That’s got to count for something in this business, doesn’t it?
