This Is Why All Of Her Films Bomb


Publicity for a film is what gets people into the seats. I know it's hard to believe, but most people are not as informed as you and find out about films when the participants pose for magazine covers or show up on television to a talk show.

As you know, Jennifer Aniston probably has the worst ratio of dollars spent to dollars earned in the history of film making and so you would think besides f**king John Mayer for the cameras that she would want to do anything at this point to have one of her films make a buck.

Well, not really. According to Life&Style this week, Jennifer and the female cast of He's Just Not That Into You had a photo shoot for Marie Claire. The one tiny issue was that even though there are at least four female leads, Jennifer Aniston wanted to be the focus of the photo. She also refused to pose if Jennifer Connelly was there.

Just because Brad Pitt had the biggest crush on Jennifer in the past is no reason to exclude her. Or are you excluding her because she can actually act? Are you jealous because there is no way on this earth that you will ever win an Academy Award except as part of a divorce settlement? It just isn't going to happen and you need to realize it. Maybe if you would allow her to be on the cover someone would actually want to come see the film and not be instantly repelled.

I hate when people do this s**t. What the f**k kind of ego have you developed where you want to dictate who is in a photo with you and who isn't. That is the worst kind of childish diva behavior and anyone doing it should immediately be placed on whatever shame pile there is and all their movies should be consigned to being an insert in a Girls Gone Wild goodie bag.

Can you imagine being at your office and the boss wants to get some photos of the office personnel for the website and you refuse because you don't want to be associated with someone in the office. Can you say fired? Instead with an actor, the people just coddle and agree with the actress and demand the other one be removed. If you can think of a whim, someone will fulfill it. They might not make you any money and your trailers may ever smell like pot, but you will still get a full blast of diva for your money.

Loving the line of the Oscar in the divorce settlement!
For someone who seems to "be over it" she sure does seems to bring it up when ever something goes wrong.
Get over it Jen! Sit down and go count your Friends money.

ent lawyer u are wrong about something cos according to forbes jennifer aniston is in the top seven of actors/actress that for every dollar they get paid the stuido makes more, she even beat brad pitt on that list lol.

u need to look at the budget of the films she has been and how much they have made, i wouldnt call that bad business, when i think of bomb i think nicole kidman who seem to have had a bit of bad luck at the box office lately. and do we actually believe this story for godsakes it L&S and they usually bullshit,have never heard of aniston being a diva or difficult to work with something not right with this article or someone had too much time on their hands and decided to write up a classical catfight story lol.

sorry to digress here, but who is the guy with those amazing blue eyes in the picture?

I knew his name, but havent been feeling well all day and have forgotten his name... :(

Honestly, I think Aniston did it more for a marketing purpose than anything.

If she's front and center, it shows that she's the "star" of the movie, and any success of the movie is due to her publicity.

Once you get pushed to the sides of photos, photographers think you're "okay" with this, and you keep getting pushed aside and the prettier people (Connolly) get the better publicity, credit, and future work.

That said, I have never really understood why Aniston and her hair were the stars of Friends. I much preferred Matt LeBlanc and Courtney Cox, and hoped they would be the breakouts.

I really don't care for Jennifer Aniston always thought she was one of the worst so call actress.

And if she is still pinning for Brad she needs to get over that and done with.

lutefisk said...

Meh-she does nothing for me.

Well, it would be good if you did your research before spouting off, but I guess you wouldn't have been able to write this nasty blog if you actually used facts to back you up.

Advice: before posting crap, actually do some research so you don't look like a complete idiot. Check out Forbes to see who makes the most money per dollar spent (and guess what, it isn't Jolie and it isn't Pitt: is that a surprise?)

Unknown said...

Well, can't blame Brad Pitt for having a crush on Jennifer Connelly. The woman is gorgeous.

I'm not sure if this story is even true, considering the source (L&S magazine), but I can understand why Jen Aniston would do this. Lately, she's just been known for who she dates instead of any work she's done (other than Vitamin Water). Ms. Connelly already has respect as an actress, so I don't think she gives a shit whether she's in the middle of the group shot or not. Aniston, on the other hand, needs to prove herself; especially now that Brad is not in the picture.

jax said...

well i have no clue how Jen Aniston makes any fucking money on her movies,no one sees them until they come out on DVD and they all get awful reviews..when was the last #1 movie she had again?
not derailed,not the break up those were carried by the leading men.

(crickets)

mags said...

I would hope the MC story isn't true. That's some big ego/insecurity if true.

She could be in the middle. There's five females, ScarJo, Jennifer Connelly, Drew Barrymore, Ginnifer Goodwin (who did great in Walk the Line btw) and Aniston.

I don't see Aniston standing out next to any of them.

maybe aniston should be in the back so she is blocked by well known actresses hehehe.

lachickforever said...

Maybe because Anniston knows she is a fuggo??

PollyPureBred said...

Ms. Aniston should get back to where she belongs...slap-stick sit-comes. She should be HONORED that was was allowed to be in the presence of the amazing talent she acted with the past few years. Her agent must be magic.

Moonmaid said...

This all begs the bigger question: what did Jennifer Connelly do to her once spectacular breasts? They're really shrunken:

Did she have implants previously and have them removed? Just wondering.

niecie said...

Ent, Get over yourself and check your facts. She is actually #1 on the forbes list. Quit hating so much on this woman. She isn't that bad.

Special MOM said...

Didn't she have a baby? That can definitely shrink your boobs, once you stop breastfeeding.

plot said...

Screw Forbes. Aniston hasn't made a hit movie...ever? The only way she qualifies for the Forbes list is if she works for scale, which might be the case and the only way JA might be cast in anything anyway.

WTF said...

Aniston can't act.

audrey said...

There was a preview of this shit movie on one of the entertainment shows. I was at the computer at the time and usually there is something that will make me turn to look. Not this one...big snooze fest, and no amount of publicity is going to make me want to spend a small fortune to go to a movie when the trailer didn't even register on the radar.

Wil said...

Um... no Niecie - I think you need to check your facts: http://www.forbes.com/lists/2008/53/celebrities08_The-Celebrity-100_Rank.html According to this .. Aniston is 17th, which shocked the shit outta me!

Marie Claire should have told Aniston to shove it. She can't act for shit and I would bet hard cash that ScarJo and Jennifer Connelly would be a bigger draw for women to buy their rag than Aniston.

But .. if you think about it .. of all the people for Aniston to single out, it makes sense she would be most threatened by Jennifer Connelly. Connelly has a gorgeous husband, gorgeous children and an amazing acting career. Whereas, Aniston .. not so much on any of those fronts.

Judi said...

Connelly for the win. Paul Bettany is her husband. She has two children and became very thin around the time she won her Oscar - she looked awful and I guess people told her because she's since gained some weight and looks healthy and truly stunning. Anyway, giving birth does things to a woman's body, including to the boobage.
Yes, wtf, Aniston can't act. In no way is she in the same league as the other women mentioned. If this story is true, how very stupid of her.

Stacey said...

I believe this . Aniston is known for being insecure and jealous, and I mean really she'd look worse next to Connelly and she knows it.
