Jennifer Aniston Does Something Nice


Jennifer Aniston has done something worthy of a kindness. I will assume she has done it out of the goodness of her heart, and not for publicity, because, I like to see the good in people. Right now she is shooting a movie with Gerard Butler entitled The Bounty. The crew was scheduled to have Friday through Sunday off last week for the 4th of July. Well, Jennifer decided to give the crew off an additional day. According to People, Jennifer paid the salaries of every crew member for last Thursday so they could have a four day weekend.

"Jen is such a genuinely good person," says one crew member. "How many people in this world would pay for an entire movie set to have off for the day? Not just anyone does that. We're talking big bucks."

So, Jennifer, this is me saying that was a very nice gesture, and I am sure the crew will love you forever because of it.

I always found Aniston to be a good hearted person, it's just that she has some really undesirable traits especially when it comes to men.

Moogybaby said...

I'll give credit where credit is due. Verythoughtful, JA.

empyrios said...

that's pretty freakin' awesome

kudos to her

If she just wanted to do something nice for publicity there are a lot cheaper things to do. Katie Holmes gets publicity just for bringing frickin cupcakes. Jen could have catered a whole gourmet meal for everyone and their families for a lot less money and still received the same publicity. Whatever was the reason, everyone benefitted from it anyway.

I like her. She seems genuine and nice and a fun person to hang out with. It's the reporters that never shut up about Brad, not her.

I have three years until 40. She's my (physical) inspiration.

littleoleme said...

I have to ask, why do people seem to hate her so much? She does have really bad taste in men but besides that, what has she done?

Christine said...

Even if she did it for publicity, the result is the same. Good for her.

MontanaMarriott said...

She probably wanted that day off too or is screwing someone on the crew and wanted him to have the day off as well, lol

vitazza said...

She seems like a sweet lady...who needs a sweet stable man and not a hot Brad replacement.... IMHO!

AnnMarie said...

I like her, too. That is so cool!!

Thisisridiculous said...

Sounds to me like she's trying to up one on Angelina. $1000. gift cards? please! I'll pay you to take an extra day off!!

tit for tat as Lainey likes to point out.

jlb said...

That's just cool. And probably not tax deductable.

Quintessential Southerner said...

ha ha ha, montana! i don't dislike jen jen, but i wouldn't want to hang out with her ass.

Pookie said...

classy move. go her.

kris said...

I like her too. I seriously doubt it was to one up Angie...jesus, this isn't high school...as Lainey so often forgets.

Very nice of Jen!

I LIKE JEN ALWAYS HAVE.....

I work for a hospital with branches all over my state and now in Europe and they wouldn't pay me for squat. Do your employers do something that selfless?

That's very nice and classy of her to think of them. Even if all she wanted was just a day off l,she could have not showed up, and told them all to kiss it.
Instead she did something rare and nice. GO HER. Lucky crew.

AnonMom said...

Good going, Jen - you deserve a pat on the back. I like hearing stuff like this.

@empyrios: Did you happen to catch Ramona Singer ("Real Housewives of New York City") say "Kudos to us," but she pronounced it "kuh-DOOS"? I had to rewind a couple times to try to catch what it was she'd said. When I figured it out, I was aghast! (And I laughed my ass off! How on earth do you get to be in your mid-50s and you don't know how to pronounce "kudos"?!)

As for Jennifer, I've never disliked her. I've felt bad for her for the shape of her face and that men seeem to use her as if she's a doormat because they like having her on their arms, but I've always thought she seems like a genuine and likable person. I expect something like this from her. Way to go, and kuh-DOOS!

Lauren said...

Why is everyone so hard on Jenny all the time? I don't get it.

I like her, and that was very nice and classy.

bionic bunny! said...

i agree. she could have done something a lot less if she was going just for publicity.
that's some big bucks she shelled out. i don't have anything against her, she just seems really needy. hell, so am i, but i'm not famous, i already have a good man and family.
i say good on her!

empyrios said...

@ Binky: no, i've never seen that show actually but that sounds fuckin' hilarious. What a dummy, lol

Marion said...

Good on ya, Jen, nice gesture ! Don't really understand the hate on for her from some columnists - she seems like a nice person except for picking losers (and that does include Pitt)

Lissette said...

She always came across as nice and casual, not sure where the hate is coming from.

Way to spam, troll!

Winston Ono said...

huh? troll?

Wil said...

I will guiltily admit .. I am kinda Team Aniston at times. I just feel sorry for her .. she wants love so badly and it just never seems to work out for her. Then when she thought she found it .. her husband dumped her like a hot rock for someone younger and more beautiful .. I can completely sympathize with all of that. I mean .. it's not like she is friggin' Bouncie!!

Barton Fink said...

I am totally in love with Jennifer Aniston, and it's time I came out and confessed. Her hair alone has had a better career than most movie stars, and after a bunch of bad movies, she's finally hitting her stride.

Janelle said...

Hmmm...maybe I will have to revise how I feel about Jennifer Aniston. This was indeed a classy move.

@Winston Ono, I hate to admit it (facebook takes up wayyy to much time in my life) but I agree...

Harriet Hellfire said...

Yup, I like her too. I just think she seems quite normal. Maybe not the best actress in the world but she's certainly not the worst. Or even in the bottom half. Yes, I like Rach...I mean, Jennifer Aniston.

not on my dollar said...

Nice job Jen. I've never heard anything nasty about her so I'll assume she's an okay person.

not on my dollar said...

P.S. I wonder how much that cost her?

Katja said...

That is chump change for her- 200-300k. She made 1 million per episode for the last few years of friends. So unless she was with Madoff (as I assume Brooke Shields was)she is in the way upper millionaire club.

The cast members received salaries of $750,000 per episode in the seventh and eight seasons, and $1 million per episode in the ninth and tenth.[11] The cast also received syndication royalties beginning with the fifth season.


I don't know how she could have arranged that with all of the different unions involved off the cuff. Any Union members with a contract background out there?

Chantelle said...

Eventhough I do think she probably just did this for publicity, it still was a nice thing to do and at least the crew got four days off. I'm sorry for those who disagree with me, but I just think she is one of those bitches in disguise like Reese Witherspoon and Carrie Underwood. I can't really see her doing something like this out of the goodness of her heart.

The crew member spoke to People. She totally did this for publicity!
