Last week Jennifer Aniston's latest movie bombed. It did awful much like many of her preceding movies. Whenever this happens you can be sure that the Jennifer Aniston publicity machine will start generating as many stories as possible whether or not they are true.
First OK Magazine did its quarterly article that says Jennifer is pregnant or wants to be pregnant or has thought about being pregnant and throws her on their cover announcing that fact. Of course she isn't pregnant and I doubt very much whether she will ever have kids but it makes her appear to be a sympathetic figure and therefore people love her.
Then, today Page Six ran a story saying that while Jennifer was shooting Bounty with Gerard Butler that a production assistant found Jennifer alone in her trailer crying. Why? "I need a moment. This scene reminds me of Brad and me."
Oh please. Again with the sympathy. Her publicist denied both the pregnancy story and the crying story but she still got a cover and a huge Page Six headline for the week. It is kind of funny that right after a huge bomb at the box office that she is still on the lips of the tabloids.
I understand the whole woe is me thing is her calling card and she plays it well but it has been almost four years and she has had a string of boyfriends. At what point can we stop playing this game and just have her move on with her life and judge her based on her career rather than one failed relationship? Everyone has failed relationships in Hollywood, but for some reason everyone else moves on and comes up with new angles to generate publicity or relies on their work and box office success to keep moving forward.
I don't dislike Jennifer. I think she is gorgeous and probably someone who would be fun to drink with and so I don't understand why she can;t be who she is and why we need to keep having this victim cycle repeatedly.
