Ellen J. Langer (Harvard Professor of Psychology and main character in Counter Clockwise) said:

“[After I met Jennifer, I was] impressed with how bright and genuine she seemed to be. She’s also even better looking in person.”


Queen Latifah said:

“You know, I was looking at something the other day. A magazine with Jennifer Aniston on the cover. That’s a strong woman right there. All of these people in her business-who is she dating? Angie this. Brad that. They come up with so much stuff. That’s a tough situation to be in. My situation is small compared to that.”


Linda Lavin said:

“They were both very generous. Jennifer and Paul [Rudd].”

“Listen to that [fans screaming]. I bet that’s Jennifer Aniston. Very exciting.”

“I have a lovely part in [Wanderlust] playing a very glamorous, sharp-shooter real estate broker to Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd. It’s a very funny script, and filming was wonderful; very easy and sweet. I just kept looking at Jennifer… she’s so beautiful and such a wonderful comedienne. I’m a big fan of Friends, so I was finally working with this young women I’d watched for so long. The thing about working with people you’ve watched, suddenly you’re sitting across from the table and you go, ‘Wow, I know you from the TV!’ And they start doing the same thing. It’s a very mutual admiration society.”


Bill Lawrence (executive producer of Cougar Town) said:

“Nothing’s happened yet. I’d kill to get Jennifer on [Cougar Town], and if I had any inclination it was happening, I would be telling everybody ’cause I don’t really give a sh-t. I would love it to happen and the second it did I would tell everybody in the world, but nothing’s happened.”

“By the nature of Jennifer and Courteney’s friendship, they’re gonna have to answer questions about [a reunion] forever and ever… But the reality is Jennifer Aniston I think does anywhere from 70 to 80 movies a year. She works a lot, so it’s tough to make that stuff work. But I’d love it to happen.”

“She’s going to play Courteney’s shrink named Bonnie in [Cougar Town]. Kind of a get-too-involved-in-her-life-type of therapist. Those guys are so close in real life they kind of do that for each other anyway. Bonnie has the life Jules wishes she has.”

“It took us a while to find the show. And once we did and once it was clicking, I think that not only did Courteney feel comfortable talking to Jen about doing it, but comfortable in how funny she thinks the show is and that Jen would like it and fit into this world really well.”

“It starts and ends with Courteney and Jennifer being really great friends and excited to work together again — especially doing comedy together. Every day that those two talk they have more ideas about [the role]. It’s definitely something they’re both involved in creatively.”

“We’re very intentionally implying that it’s a therapist Courteney has been using for a while, and we’re certainly not going to make it like they’ll never see each other again. So I’m crossing my fingers that if [Jennifer] has a good time it’ll happen again.”

“Business-wise I knew coming into this year that if I just did a normal episode, ABC’s priorities would be launching Modern Family and launching their new shows. And if I got Jennifer Aniston to be in the first one, I knew they would have, and it without a doubt happened, that they would respond with financial backing for the launch. Creatively it didn’t bother me because unlike bringing just a big famous person that you don’t know how to deal with on a show, Jennifer and Courteney have this ages-long friendship and ages-long working relationship that we all knew they’d have chemistry that we knew would be easy to write scenes for them, we knew that they’d click and be funny and they were. For us it just became a burden of how can we have Jennifer Aniston on this show and have it be a typical episode of Cougar Town. So no one feels bait and switched and we were able to do that because all Jen cared about was coming on and being able to do funny stuff with Courteney and she didn’t care about coming on because she’s not high-maintenance, she’s actually insanely easy to work with. She didn’t care about coming on and being served and having a huge dramatic story about her, all she wanted to do was come and have fun with Court and be funny.”

“I’ll tell you what I think — it’s a two-pronged answer. I feel like actors and actresses are either good or bad, funny or not funny, so I’m super shocked when a movie comes out and it says, ‘Wow, this Jennifer Aniston movie didn’t work’ and the few of those that I’ve heard that and seen them, I’ve never ever ever once gone, ‘Wow, if that was somebody other than Jennifer Aniston playing that part that movie would have made hundreds of millions of dollars.’ I usually go, ‘That’s too bad that movie wasn’t that well-written and wasn’t that well-directed.’ You know what I mean? I really feel like blaming an actor or an actress, except in a rare occasion, for a movie not working is like blaming the manager when his entire team strikes out every time they’re up. Maybe there’s rare occasions when the manager makes a mistake or where they didn’t do something right, but I find Jen to be a comedically talented actress. I’ll tell you right now as a guy, I’m not saying this out of friendship, I mean I like her, but as a guy that has spent every single year when he’s created a TV show searching for an attractive… every TV show is always searching for that cute attractive girl that can turn a joke and she’s just a stud with that… First thing I’d do is just write a good f—–g movie and put her in it because people are really just kind of out to get her which I don’t generally understand. It seems like there’s almost a media glee if she’s in something that doesn’t work. Like even, I had to read stupid articles that said even though ‘The Switch’ made eight million bucks and it was suddenly launched as a big movie, even though I had been working on booking Jen just out of friendship for months, there were hundreds of articles about, ‘The Switch fails so Jen runs back to TV.’ Oh please, that’s so stupid.”

“I could see Jen coming back to television only in the sense that she enjoys working and I think that she, sometimes traveling all the time and kind of being a bit of a gypsy is a tough life and because she’s awesome at it and could be creatively involved and do whatever the hell she wanted, I think that would have some appeal, but I would be shocked if she didn’t stay in the movie business hardcore for at least the very near future of her life. I know she’s running off again to do another big movie, like a Judd Apatow project which is supposed to be really funny. So for me, I don’t see that in her near future.”


Christopher Lawrence (costume designer on Management) said:

“She’s very beautiful and has such inner charisma and great energy that all of that shines through, even in shabby clothes. Most of her clothes came from either costume houses, some thrift stores, also places like J.C. Penney’s and K-Mart. We really tried to shop in places where Sue would shop, and then breaking that up and making it more soft, so that we sympathize with her, not resent her.”


Denis Leary (US comedian) said:

“I love my wife deeply and forever but I do have to say: Jennifer Aniston Jennifer Aniston Jennifer Aniston.”

“[I would love to be Jennifer Aniston] so I could see myself naked in the mirror! The girls on my show are hot. Jennifer Aniston is cute and sexy in a genuine way, and I think everything on her body is real. In America, especially in the TV and movies, there are a lot of fake girls.”


Matt LeBlanc said:

“There’s only five people in the world who know exactly what being on Friends was like, other than me. There’s five of them. David, Matthew, Lisa, Courteney, and Jen. That’s it. Marta and David were close, but when they left the stage, no one knew what they did. We could never leave the stage, metaphorically speaking. Still can’t. Still on that stage. That will follow us around forever.”

“I’m still not the famous one. That’s Jennifer. We were having lunch last year and photographers were all over us. They snapped us outside the restaurant giving each other a goodbye kiss on the lips. The papers had a field day. You can’t really go near Jennifer. You do, and you’re all over the world headlines.”

“Jen is one big giant heart. Over the last couple of seasons, I’ve had the pleasure of really working close with Jen. And she’s so alive on stage and she really works from the heart and is really sensitive and really has a great work ethic and is just dynamite.”

“Jen doesn’t like to overwork things. She has a real fresh loose-cannon-y thing about her that’s real exciting to work with.”

“She’s a – just a giant heart with a head and feet. That’s Jennifer Aniston, yeah.”

“Jennifer and I kind of clung together at the end [of Friends]. We were both having a really hard time. ”

“Yeah, David just directed an episode but Jennifer is the one you really have to get away from. She brings flocks of paparazzi with her. One time we happened to be at the same valet parking. We greeted each other and kissed on the cheek. Of course the one thing they got was a picture of us that looked like we’re making out!”

“I had a little crush on Jen in the very beginning, but I think the whole world did too, so what are you going to do? That didn’t last very long because they did become like sisters. Jen became like a little sister and Courteney and Lisa became like big sisters.”

“Jen is just an angel with great advice all the time.”

“I auditioned like eight times [for Friends]. Had to keep coming back and keep coming back. And the last one I read was with Courteney and Jennifer who were both cast already. We decided that, ‘Well, let’s treat these three like sisters and try to sleep with every other girl in the world. Unless one of them was up for it.’”

“[In season ten of Friends], there are some scenes [between Jennifer and I] that get fairly steamy.”

“Brad [Pitt] was actually really nervous. I don’t know if that was because Jen is so good and he didn’t want to get shown up by the Mrs.”


Sandra Lee said:

“When I think of People’s 100 Most Beautiful issue, I think of Jennifer Aniston, not me. She has great hair!”


Ron Leibman (Rachel’s dad on Friends) said:

“I may have played Shylock at the New York Shakespeare Festival or won a Tony for Angels in America but people ask me, ‘Aren’t you Rachel’s dad?’”


Stefan Lessard (bassist of Dave Matthews Band) said:

“So Ellen [DeGeneres] rocks and so does Jennifer Aniston… just saying.”


James Lesure (Alonzo from Mr Sunshine) said:

“Yeah, I’m gonna go Jennifer Aniston. All day, every day. [She's my favorite cast member from Friends.]”


Angela Levin (friend and makeup artist) said:

“Jen has an amazing ability to see the bright side of things. She has a very healthy, positive outlook on life, and it really does show. I think the beauty secret for a lot of women is happiness – it shows on your face.”

“I’ll be putting makeup on [her], and she’ll grab a little cheek color and put it on me and say, ‘You need a little color on your face.’ It’s really funny. She’s a very wonderful girlfriend.”

“Whenever I think of Jen, I think of someone who’s surrounded by people who love her and whom she loves.”


Jason Lewis said:

“I’m good, but I’m not that good. The hard part was, it was the holidays and I had to keep explaining it to my family. I think they were a little disappointed [that the rumors about me being the father of her baby weren't true].”


Juliette Lewis said:

“Anybody will tell you she smells wonderful. She has her own Jennifer Aniston scent, it’s beautiful.”

“Well, she’s a producer on the movie, so she had a lot to say on who was gonna play her BFF. What’s wonderful about her is she’s as lovely as you’d want her to be. She just has no airs, and she’s very down to earth… No, we did not gossip [about Brad Pitt]. We’re grown women, so we just worked and hung out.”

“Jen was simply a piece of heaven. Just a real girls’ girl – really down to earth, funny and absolutely wonderful. I play her best friend and I am kind of daffy, but we just had a natural affinity for each other.”

“I think it’s a unique part for Jennifer. Just the adventure that her character is on is really unique and not of the norm.”

“[Jason Bateman] and Jennifer just are good. They have a lot of chemistry.”

“I worked with Jennifer Aniston on the last movie I did, The Baster. [Fame]‘s so hard but she handles it with such grace and humor.”

“She’s extremely down to earth. She’s a real woman’s woman. She’s funny and quirky and all those things. I think it’s also where you come from, how people get to know you – and people got to know her from television, from a character for what, eight years? Ten years? I don’t know. So it’s how you’re introduced to the public and what box that gets created for you.”

“She’s friendly with him [Brad Pitt], I’m friendly with him – it’s just friends. But I can’t really compare our individual situations because it’s not like that. There’s more respect because, I mean, she was married to Brad. That was a marriage; it’s something a bit deeper. And our relationship was, like, in high-school age.”

“Jennifer Aniston. One of the first things you – before you meet her – you sense her through her delicious smell, so it’s actually really appropriate that she do a perfume. And it’s her first time, right? It’s just this year. So I will be buying the Jennifer Aniston perfume. She smells delicious.”

“There’s an obvious history we share but while we didn’t share stories about Brad, we did have an instant connection and mutual affection. I love her.”

“It was so nice just to work with her because she immediately is a very warm and giving person. And it’s unusual, you know? I mean, to be – to feel that comfortable right away, so we had a good time.”

“Jennifer was easy to work with. Very warm. We bonded right away, like sisters.”


James Liao said:

“Steve’s just talented, down to earth and endlessly generous in the way he works. To work with Steve and Woody Harrelson and then Jen was incredible. She’s so generous in what she does and always looks you dead in the eye, even when she’s just feeding you lines. I learned so much from them, and so much from Stephen Belber.”


Doug Liman (producer of The Bourne Trilogy) said:

“The next year, Jennifer got Friends. I was like, ‘You guys were idiots not to let me cast the person I wanted.’” – on casting Jen in one of his movies


David Lipman (conceptualizer of Jen’s fragrance campaign) said:

“What you see in the photos is really how she is; she’s unrehearsed and free. She didn’t want it to feel like a moment of pretension at any point, and even the shoot was very one-on-one. We hope that if people like the purity and the naturalness of who she is, they will want to experience this product with her.”

“[The bottle of the fragrance is said to reference] the flow of a Frank Gehry building combined with the fluidity and organic form of a cresting wave.”

“Translating Jennifer’s vision and her life into one of the most sensory experiences is a wonderful project. Her clarity and passions lend themselves so naturally to a fragrance. I think together we have created something unique and intoxicating that is truly impactful.”


James Lipton said:

“This is what I’m excited about: all of it, there are about 200 or more cards [with questions for Jennifer] in here and I’ve spent the last two weeks immersing into her life and her craft and her movies and it’s been a wonderful adventure for two weeks. Tonight it all comes together on this stage. There she’ll be, one of the most beautiful and talented women in Hollywood. Sitting right there – how far is that away from me? Two and a half feet.”

“She is a force of nature. It’s not a coincidence that she’s such a highly-regarded star all over the world. There’s something about her that’s very unique, and very strong. There’s an aura about her. … The most interesting thing about her, I think, is that she makes no effort to present herself as being special. Or different. Or better than anyone else. She’s a modest person, and very self-effacing. And there’s no pressure from her to be ‘aware’ of her. She is herself. She seems to be entirely herself. And I think that’s a remarkable combination: to be both modest in your presentation of yourself and at the same time create such a powerful forcefield that we all felt — that I felt — being only two feet from her.”

“I don’t know [what she smelled like] because we’ve got the air conditioning going like crazy in that theater. There’s 750 people [seated] in there so we have to keep it as cool as we can. Well, that would dispel any scent. But I would imagine, just a guess, that she probably smelled — I don’t know for a fact — like a perfume called Jennifer Aniston.”

“I expected that she would be interesting. What surprised me most about her was how self-possessed she was and how comfortable she was in her own skin. And how frank she was. There are moments of it that are startling. When she talks about the film The Break Up and she said, ‘Well, as you know, I have experience along those lines.’ I didn’t bring it up! She did. And she talked about it, and how the producers tried to go easy on her. They said, ‘Well, given what she’s going through we better be careful. We better not do this.’ And she said she finally turned to them and said, ‘Look, let’s get on with it. Let’s move on. I’m ready to move on. Let’s move on in the movie. Let’s go for it.’ And as a result, I think The Break Up is one of her finest performances.”

“I was very touched by her description of her experience on Friends. I asked her, ‘What was the last show like?’ And it was a very moving moment on our show. I did not anticipate her answer. … She said that when finally the audience had gone, a few cast members and she climbed up to the roof of the studio where they’d been shooting Friends for all those years and drank champagne and watched the sun come up, as that chapter of her life ended and a new day began. I thought that was beautifully expressed. Did she burst into tears? No. But clearly she felt it very strongly. So did I. So did we all.”

“She’s as quick and witty and charming as she is on screen.”


Warren Littlefield (former president of NBC Entertainment) said:

“[It's] 10:30 p.m. at night on Sunset Boulevard. I’m at the Chevron station gassing up and Jennifer is over at the other island and she comes over and she says, ‘Is it ever going to happen?’ and I say, ‘We believe in you, I love you, I so believe in your talent, I’m sure it will.’ A few months later, we handed her the ‘Friends’ script.”

“[The Friends pilot didn't test great.] – a “high weak” – but we loved it! Even though we still only had Jennifer Aniston in second position – CBS had yet to cancel Muddling Through – I decided to take another multi-million-dollar bet and shoot episodes with Jennifer in them.”

“Jennifer Aniston had been in our weak attempt a few years earlier to do Ferris Bueller as a series. (We did not have the services of John Hughes.) She played Ferris’s sister, Jeannie, and we liked what we saw. We cast her in a few more pilots, but none were very good. One night while gassing up my car on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, I ran into Jennifer, and she asked me, ‘Will it ever happen for me?’ God, I wanted it to. I didn’t care what it would take—this was the role for her.”

“I remember watching Muddling Through, Jennifer’s show. It was bad. I thought, ‘They won’t pick up this horrible show just to f— us, will they?’”


Ron Livingston said:

“I was nervous about it. But the first day of shooting she smiled and looked me in the eye. She dropped her guard is what she did. And she totally disarmed me.”


Allan Loeb (screenwriter of The Switch) said:

“I can tell you that the movie is wonderful. I am very proud of it and very happy with it. Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman both shine amazingly in this movie. Fans of Jason Bateman and Jennifer are going to be very happy and very excited to see their performances in this picture.”

“The chemistry between them isn’t as much they’re going to rip each others’ clothes off and you want to see them go to town on each other. It’s much more ‘Harry Met Sally’. It’s much more fun. It’s a lot of good banter, if I do say so myself as I wrote it. But it’s a lot of good banter and it’s real short-hand between them.”


Bellina Logan (co-star in For Dear Life) said:

“She was so sweet. I didn’t want to put myself in the position of not being remembered [when we met on the set of Picture Perfect again where I played an ad agency receptionist], but she not only remembered me but she would talk and laugh so much. She’s like that, Jennifer. She is completely genuine. She’s not like a lot of people that can become famous and have that kind of ‘What do you want from me?’ thing.”

“When she was doing Picture Perfect she could still be Jennifer, an actress who was up and coming. Things are different for her now.”

“[Glenn Gordon Caron, director of Picture Perfect] was very nice to her because I think it was very stressful for her.”

“I have to say to this day, whenever I meet her, it’s almost like we just did the play. You just don’t feel uncomfortable around her. She’s truly the real deal in that respect.”

“I had worked a few years in the theater and I just remember her asking me so many questions about it. It was a big deal to be in a big play. She was really wholly optimistic and excited and a lot of her personality that you see now was very much the way she was then. She was always very wide-eyed.”

“[Jennifer and Stephen Mailer's scene in For Dear Life] was a great scene, well written and well acted. Even at the read-through – which is a bit nerve-wracking because in a way you are re-auditioning for not only the people that have hired you but also for your castmates – the scene just read beautifully. I think Jennifer’s scene was a joy for [director] Norman Rene. He would always be good with her because her scene was so perfect. The play itself needed to be worked on because it was so uneven. When he had to move on to another scene, maybe he wasn’t so enthusiastic. Jennifer got to start the second act with a great sense of energy and I know it was the scene that people looked forward to seeing because it was a pure scene – it had a beginning, a middle and an end all in one scene and it was great. We were all a little jealous of the fact that she could come in like a breath of fresh air, especially for the audience who were probably by that point really not sure if they should have stayed though the interval!”

“We were both really happy to have this job and we would talk about that. But also Jennifer was always inquiring. She wanted to know about acting in Shakespeare and Shaw. Most of the things I had done in college were classical, Juliet for instance, and she would ask me about it. The funny thing was that she sort of looked up to me. ‘Wait a minute,’ I used to think, ‘I’m not much older than you.’”

“It was a big deal for her that her father was coming to see the play. She was really proud to be doing it and we all felt bad because she was so happy while we, on the other hand, were a bit mortified to be in the play. I felt bad that we were always raining on her parade.”

“I genuinely don’t think Tony [Shaloub] or Laila [Robins] thought [the play] would close early. Jennifer was really bummed.”


Lindsay Lohan said:

“Oh, Jennifer Aniston – I love how she dresses. She’s very classy, but at the same time she’s fun and down to earth. She can never dress wrong and I really admire that – it’s hard to dress like that.”


Justin Long (co-star in The Break-Up) said:

“She is just lovely. Reacts to every compliment like it is the first one she’s ever heard. I don’t know how she does it. But I watched her at The Break-Up premiere in Chicago … There were no ropes, you know, so she gets out of the car and moves toward the crowd to shake hands and suddenly there is just this enormous surge of people. She had to almost run back to the carpet. It was kind of scary.”


John Carroll Lynch said:

“I love that she suffers in this fishbowl of life, and I find her intriguing. I find it extraordinary.”


Shirley MacLaine said:

“Here’s the truth: Vince Vaughn prefers older women. [Jennifer] is my beard. I was the one in the car in that southwestern state. And the truth is, I’m basically having a ball and she’s taking all the gaff.”

“It was about her mother. Her character’s mother had died, and Jennifer’s mother is gone. They both had to deal with that, and I reminded her of the connection between her and her character.”

“I felt like I knew her. I didn’t know Cameron Diaz or Toni Collette [from In Her Shoes]. I respected them, but I didn’t feel I knew them. The other actress I worked with this year, Nicole Kidman, is an alien, and I related to her on that level.”

“She reminds me of my daughter. And I really admired her when we came back for the retakes. Before that, we didn’t really know what she was going through with her marriage. Then everything hit. That’s when I realized that this dame has courage and real emotional discipline. Other actresses would have called in sick, but she never did that. I also think a lot about what’s going to happen to her. I’m interested in who she’s going to marry, or if she will marry, or how many kids I see in her future, and where she’s going to live. I think these are questions she’s asking herself.”

“Maybe that is where I identify with her? [Because she - like me - likes to be alone.]”

“I see [her] having kids, but I don’t know what kind of father [she]‘ll have for those kids. Or even if [she] need[s] a father. But I see the kids later. Now, I see [her] traveling.”

“The reason she’s still a victim of that is because of what Brad and Angelina are doing. This stuff is so unbelievably interesting, and you can put interesting in quotes, that people can’t help but to think of Jennifer, and what she must be thinking. What does she think about what these other famous people are doing? If she got married again, it might dial down the fame a bit, but only if she married a stockbroker or some guy who ran Ralphs. Otherwise, I’m afraid [she's] stuck with it for a while.”

“I’m dating Vince Vaughn. She’s my beard. He’s a very liberal person. She lets me be with him in the back seat then they go and have a cocktail and act straight.”

“She has come through what must be one of the most painful and difficult requirements of any human being, much less a young person. To live their life in a spotlight like this is so painful. And to have to work and do three pictures a year? That’s really hard to separate your sense of whatever you’re going through inside, while growing up, I might add. And I’m really proud of her for the way she is handling this. She’s an icon of what to do when you get trampled in public. Her emotional discipline is extraordinary and I really want to compliment her for that.”

“That’s the real lesson that she’s teaching everybody. She says so in public and certainly in private. ‘Where is my role in this? How have I contributed to this?’ – in a very spiritual way instead of blaming and that’s a huge step and really hard.”

“Well, this ability to turn on a dime, 180 degrees, between the drama, the frustration, the deperation and the comedy. Yeah, that’s what she does very well.”

“I’m just so fortunate to be working with Nicole Kidman and Cameron [Diaz] and Toni Collette and Jennifer Aniston. These are the top young actresses of today that I find extraordinary and love working with.”

“I’m just so fortunate to be working with Nicole Kidman and Cameron [Diaz] and Toni Collette and Jennifer Aniston. These are the top young actresses of today that I find extraordinary and love working with.”

“I saw her go through that breakup. She leaned on me for support and we had long talks, which I will not discuss here. She really responded well to my advice… She’s definitely a good girl.”

“This woman has a core of real understanding of how to deal with suffering, and a capacity to separate her suffering from the discipline of work. We had some long talks, which I don’t want to discuss, and got to know each other, and I admire her and what she went through — and probably still is going through.”

“I have maternal feelings towards her. Everything had hit, and it was just national news on a level that’s not fair to anybody. Jennifer’s emotional discipline to keep it together was really extraordinary. I don’t know how she did it. She’s remarkably levelheaded about the love she still feels in her heart after having been hurt.”

“I’m really proud of her for the way she is handling this while also being an icon — if you can be one at 36, of knowing what to do when you get trampled in public. Her emotional discipline is extraordinary, and I really want to compliment her for that.”


Bailee Madison (Jen’s daughter in Just Go With It) said:

“It was so much fun. [Jen and Adam] are such nice people, on and off the set. So talented. I got to see so much of how respectful they are and how they carry themselves around a set. I find that is very challenging. They can improv with a snap of the finger. I think it’s awesome and I like them very, very much. They are really funny. I mean, Adam is a big goofball. And Jennifer is a goofball, as well, but she’s also very professional.”

“It was crazy. It was awesome. I learned so much from them [Jen and Adam]. You learn so much from them just by watching them. How they act and how they carry themselves around a crew and how nice they are. They’re awesome. I learned so much and they’re great people. I was so honored to be on a set with them.”

“I know, she’s great. She was great! She was so much fun. She’s such a loving, down-to-earth person and it was great just to get to meet her and learn so much from her.”

“Very classy. As a woman should be.”


Leslie Mann said:

“Her butt looks so perfect. I just can’t believe anybody’s butt looks that good. I thought they must have retouched it. I was sitting right behind her [at the Oscars and] I thought, ‘There’s a lot of standing during the Academy Awards; I’m just gonna stay down when they’re next standing up.’ So everybody gets up and I stay down, clapping and I got a perfect view of every angle of her butt, and it’s perfect. The magazines don’t even do her justice.”


Ken Marino said:

“When we finished the script, we made a wish list and on top of that list was Jennifer Aniston and Alan Alda. And we were like, We can’t possibly get these. And then we asked and they said ‘Yes’ and we were enormously surprised and happy, thrilled.”

“As a matter of fact, I know that [Jen and Justin Theroux] didn’t get together on set. We had a very communal kind of thing. We were in the middle of nowhere when we were shooting and we were all hanging out and there was a very – we became a family. But no, they didn’t get together until way after we were done shooting and back in L.A.”

“How important was it [to have Jen and Paul Rudd]? I think the movie doesn’t work without them. Paul and David [Wain] and I have been friends for a long time and you know, you can’t get better than working with Paul. Creatively and as a friend. And then he came in and he was like, Well, what about Jen? Cause he had worked with her. We were thrilled about that because I don’t think you can get better than Jen, so… And then meeting her, she was, you know, ten times better than you’d expect her to be. As a person. She’s just a – and I expected her to be a wonderful person before meeting her – she’s just a sweetheart, so it was just a perfect combination for us.”

“Who do you want to root for? For lack of a better term, Jennifer is America’s sweetheart, and having her playing a character who goes into these darker places, we thought that would be a smart way to go. You forgive Jen a little bit more easily.”

“I think she fit beautifully into our posse.”

“I think [Jen and Paul Rudd] were spot on. We had both of them in mind. We had Paul in mind as soon as we were writing it and Jen was kind of on our dream list, you know? So we didn’t know if we would get her but when we got her, we were like, ‘Oh, great. Perfect.’ You know? So when they stepped into it, their instincts and their choices were spot on.”


Laurence Mark (producer of The Object Of My Affection) said:

“Jennifer is the girl next door – or the girl you’d like to have next door. And she’s a better actress than her TV work let’s you see.”

“She is the girl next door – the idealized version. She’s really pretty, but somehow you can believe she might live next door, if you were lucky. With Jen you feel this immediate connection.”


Michael Markowitz (writer of Horrible Bosses) said:

“Asked about my creating Julia with her in mind, Ms. Aniston [said] ‘Isn’t that incredible? I love a man with an imagination.’ I can die now.”

“I love these pictures of Jennifer Aniston & Julie Bowen [at the Horrible Bosses premiere]… yet they are still even more beautiful in person.”

“[The boss Julia Harris is based on] was very sexually aggressive with everybody, but she looked more like Cruella De Vil. It was like flirting with a cobweb. So I decided for the sake of the movie, let’s go with Jennifer Aniston.”

“When I wrote the script — I always have actors in mind when I was writing. And Jason Bateman and [Jen] were the actors I had in mind. I never knew if it was like, rude, to tell [her] that I thought of [her] for that part. I broke my leg and was watching DVDs, and I watched Friends start to finish and I thought, Oh! She’d be great at this. Rachel was so much bawdier.”


Ross Mathews said:

“[In my preparation for my week of hosting duties on Chelsea Lately], I’ve been trying to do the things that Chelsea does to prepare, so I’ve been drinking. A lot. Every night, starting around noon. And I thought it would be fun to hang out with one of Chelsea’s best friends, Jennifer Aniston, but that didn’t really work out because the fence around Jen’s house is super high and really hard to climb (especially when you’re drunk).”


Dave Matthews said:

“When the cameras were off, I felt comfortable [with Jen, Adam and Nicole Kidman]. But then… Whether it was Jennifer or Adam or [Nicole], when the cameras were on, I felt like I was going to fall down the edge of a tall building. Constantly.”


John Mayer said:

“Let me just tell you that Jen is a huge liar and we are having twins.” (joking)

“It’s really nice to have somebody in life have your back. That girl knows me… So, whether I go to bed alone or not, to have somebody who knows you in this world, that’s a really nice thing.”

“Jennifer Aniston is the smartest, most sophisticated person I think I’ve ever met. She’s one of the most lovely people I’ve ever met in my life.”

“Jen and I made that cake together. She went on Oprah, she didn’t really give me any credit for that cake and I was really the architect on that cake. I put a lot of my time in designing that cake. I was a good man. I shared the process. Every part of that cake was a shared process, from mixing to frosting. When that cake went up on Oprah, that was my opportunity. [And Jen] took all the credit. It’s a little trouble, but we’re getting over it. We’re having therapy every day.”

“I want her moment to be her moment. She worked so hard on this movie [Marley & Me]. I want her to be in the pictures… I want her to be in the frame. I don’t want my mug in there.”

“You know why I’m out here tonight, because I’m a good man and I want to see the movie.”

“I mean, if I have a problem with that [GQ, January 2009] cover, I should just get the hell out of here. I should just pack up the Toyota and head out of town. I’m just gonna get ready to put my knuckles in the air for it.”

“No, don’t make me hold [the GQ cover] – you’re pimping me out! Because when I touch it, angels die.”

“I sort of told myself in the car that I was going to talk about dogs and movies and fonts. On the GQ cover, fonts only.”

“I actually don’t think anything about [the picture in GQ of Jennifer with two guys], to be honest with you. I think if you know the person… I just, I just wanted his number.”

“[Talking about the GQ cover] is what I didn’t want to say on the red carpet. That’s terrible boyfriend support. Argh!”

“I haven’t seen the [Marley & Me] yet. This is the first time. I don’t like getting in the way. I actually go into housewife mode pretty fast.”

“I’m told that I’m going to cry quite a bit [during Marley & Me]. I cry at Diet Coke commercials, I’m going to go. I’m going over the edge.”

“I’m [at the premiere of Marley & Me] to support someone I love and [her] movie.”

“The last thing you’re gonna take issue with is, ‘I’m just having a hard day with this cover.’ If you have a problem with that cover, go make bagels!”

“Do you know that girl can sing? I think she could do ‘This Light of Mine’ and kill it.”

“It’s not my world, the Oscar thing. You can go from a Grammy winner to a waterboy when you walk into Kodak Theatre on Oscar night. That’s a whole different level. [I went for] moral support. You have to really be with someone that you know who has your back in that situation, and she did and it was really great. At some point, you feel comfortable enough and say this is the choice I want to make… I think a year is a pretty good period of time with which to say: Yeah, let’s go have a really good time at the Oscars.”

“I met a girl one time in Vegas. Her name was Dimples, and the ‘s’ in Dimples was a dollar sign. I have this weird feeling, a pride thing, for the people I’ve had relationships with. I still feel like I’m with them, in the sense that if I f—ed Dimples, what does that say about someone like Jen? I feel like it’s all connected. How could I ever cosmically relate these two people? What would I be saying to Jen, who I think is f—ing fantastic, if I said to her, ‘I don’t dislike you. In fact, I like you extremely well. But I have to back out of this because it doesn’t arc over the horizon. This is not where I see myself for the rest of my life, this is not my ideal destiny,’ and then I see myself f—ing Dimples? What does that say for my case?”

“I’m the a$$hole [for breaking up with Jennifer.] I burned the American flag. I basically murdered an ideal.”

“I’ve never really gotten over [the break-up with Jen.] It was one of the worst times of my life.”

“I had a conversation about fame with Jen before we ever really stepped out in public. She said, ‘Do you understand what this entails?’ Two weeks later I had people outside my house. I was smart enough to know it would probably make me a salable item for the paparazzi. I knew I’d have to move to a home that had a gate. But that pearl of possibility that lives in your heart when you meet somebody you want to know more about has such a different molecular density than everything else that you have to pursue it. And I wouldn’t undo it, man. Because if it had worked out, I would have reaped the benefits. I would be sitting here saying, ‘What I have when I go home is the thing I’ve always wanted.’”

“Yes, [Jen has heard "Battle Studies".] I played it for her as the record was being made.”

“There’s a level of honesty in that record [Battle Studies] that probably made her uncomfortable, but I couldn’t let that change the way I wrote songs. There were moments when she said, ‘What’s that line?’ Like, ‘That’s not about me, is it?’ While I was going out with her she was on the cover of GQ wearing nothing but a tie. These are occupational hazards. When she heard Battle Studies she just wanted to be able to say, ‘I want to know that you hold me correctly in your heart.’”

“I don’t want to say [how much of Battle Studies is about Jennifer.] I feel bad because people think ‘Heartbreak Warfare’ is about her. I want to go on record saying it’s not. That woman would never use heartbreak warfare. That woman was the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person.”

“We just have a regard for each other’s feelings that is pretty intense. It’s been a deep relationship, and it’s no longer taking place at all. Have you ever loved somebody, loved her completely, but had to end the relationship for life reasons?”

“If Jennifer Aniston knows how to use BitTorrent I’ll eat my fucking shoe. One of the most significant differences between us was that I was tweeting. There was a rumor that I had been dumped because I was tweeting too much. That wasn’t it, but that was a big difference. The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, ‘These are the new rules.’”

“[I think it's important for people to know that Heartbreak Warfare is not about her because] I’m very protective of Jen.”

“Yes, [I still love her], always. I’ll always be sorry that it didn’t last. In some ways I wish I could be with her. But I can’t change the fact that I need to be 32.”

“[When I told paparazzis that I had ended the relationship with Jen 'because I don't want to waste somebody's time if something's not right'], it really, really upset her.”

“I love Jen so much that I’m now thinking about how bad I would feel if she read this [interview in which I talk about other past relationships as well] and was like, ‘Why are you putting me in an article where you’re talking about someone else? I don’t want to be in your lineage of kiss-and-tells.’”


Jayma Mays said:

“Jennifer Aniston I love, love, love, love.”


Jack McBrayer (30 Rock co-star) said:

“It was impressive. We were all taking notes. I think we are all star-struck with her. She was an absolute delight. She’s such a pro, and she was just so lovely to be around.”

“We don’t necessarily interact but you’ll see me in the background. I got a picture taken with her, so that’s all I needed.”


Jenny McCarthy said:

“For [Bill O'Reilly] to trash [Jennifer], the actress, portraying something in a movie is kind of stupid.”


Heather McDonald (writer on Chelsea Lately) said:

“Jennifer had definitely put on weight in the last couple of months. When she came to do the show a couple days ago, you could tell she looked a little bit bigger. She could be pregnant. I know she wants to have a baby and she would make a wonderful mother. You can tell that Jennifer is so completely in love with Justin [Theroux]. She’s just glowing.”

“It was great having Jen Aniston on the show. She’s super sweet, with the really hot body, the good hair and the, ‘It’s great to be with you guys on After Lately. You guys are great!’ … and she’s really, truly friends with Chelsea [Handler] so I think that’s the main reason why she did it. I don’t think it was because of us. But she’s totally delightful and fun and her episode is funny too.”

“Chelsea did not date Jennifer Aniston but they are very similar. They are really friends and she is awesome — I hugged her. Oh my gosh, it was everything you could imagine. She never wears a padded bra, so you always feel the hard nipple. All those years of Pilates all worked out.”

“Jen Aniston is the hottest woman of all time. The cast of After Lately can attest to that!”

“It’s kind of crazy when you’re doing scenes with Jen Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, but they really are who you think they would be. They’re just completely girls’ girls, someone that you and I would be friends with, really down to earth, really sweet and truly good friends with Chelsea. They wanted to do [the show] which was nice.”

“I impersonate Jen Aniston, so I loved sitting across from her and studying the way she tilts her head and sweeps her hair out of her eye with her forefinger, as well as her laugh and the way she scrunches her nose when she is mid-thought. At the end of the day, Jen (or ‘The Jenster,’ as I like to call her in the privacy of my own brain) reached out to hug me and I felt her core; all those years of practicing yoga on the beaches of Cabo really paid off. It is everything you’d think it would be: flat, firm, and tight. I wish she could say the same thing about mine.”

“When Jen Aniston entered the set of ‘After Lately’ (premieres Sun., Nov. 27 at 11PM ET on E!) to shoot her scenes, the first thing that I noticed was her T-shirt. It was the classic Jen Aniston T-shirt she is famous for (with the heart-shaped neckline and cap sleeves), and that is exactly what came out of my mouth: ‘Jen, you’re wearing the Jen Aniston T-shirt you’re famous for.’ And she responded with, ‘What, that’s weird.’ It was weird (and weird for me to say out loud), but look up paparazzi photos of Jen running errands throughout the last 15 years and she’s consistently wearing that style of T-shirt, with her perfect, cute real boobs in a non-padded bra. In fact, that night I told my husband about her cute boobs, and my 5-year-old son looked up from his iPad and asked, ‘Boobs can be cute?’ ‘When they’re Jennifer Aniston’s they can be,’ I answered.”

“Actually, it’s a little background you get from the three of them and their friendship [in the second season of After Lately. Chelsea Handler, Reese Witherspoon and Jen] are definitely really friends. They definitely are real friends.”

“I got to touch her hot piece of ass. She’s got such a great body. Oh my God, if you ever hug her, it’s like the core is everything you’d think it would be.”

“Filming with [Jen and Reese Witherspoon] – it’s everything you’d think they would be. Totally reliable and sweet and cute. Super down-to-earth and so generous of their time and really fun.”

“At Chelsea Lately, best day, I got to hug Jennifer Aniston in the hall and she approached me and said oh my god you’re so funny you know how she is and I felt her core and it was amazing, and it was really everything you’d think it was. Like I’ve never hugged a woman’s stomach like that and it was worth it.”

“There was another time she came and she had nipple hard on, and that was probably all the guys’ best day. So mine was hugging the core the other time was when she wore the white tank top.”

“I definitely want to see Horrible Bosses. I love Jennifer Aniston; she does not irritate me in movies at all. I thought Derailed was so good. I love juicy Bulldodo like that.”

“Chelsea took us to Cabo after the VMAs and Jen wasn’t there for that one, but she did come to the show recently and I did get to hug her. I felt her core. It was pretty amazing. Everything you could imagine.”


Chris McMillan (friend and hairstylist) said:

“People can relate to Jennifer. They look at her and think, I could do that [with my hair].”

“[Currently], she has a long bob—a lob. It’s actually a growing-out bob. A growb?”

“I love the one she has now. And I loved her hair in The Break-Up; it wasn’t too long or too short, and it had nice texture, beachy waves. ‘The Rachel,’ I don’t even remember! You know what I mean? I’m sure I really loved it at the time but I’m so far removed from that time and that cut.”

“We pretty much have a formula: I use a Kérastase mousse at the crown and the ends, and a little bit of Kérastase Sérum Oléo-Relax only on the ends—because we love the smell and how it moisturizes her hair—and Shu Uemura Shape Paste. I also buy the old Laminates Hair Spray by Sebastian on eBay. It’s an aerosol pump spray rather than the screw-on pump they have now. I just like the old stuff better.”

“She likes to be able to touch her hair. She is the type of person that will not have a sprayed hairdo that can’t be messed with or fussed with. [That doesn't eliminate updo's.] We’ll do a ponytail. But those dresses that those girls wear [on the red carpet] are so fancy, you need a lived-in looking hairdo. It just goes.”

“I give her the ponytail holder and she does it herself. I get the texture in there and the height and she kind of gets the elastic where she wants it and then I tweak it afterwards. We’re definitely a tag team when it comes to her hair. [Pulling their hair back themselves is] just something that [women] do! Like they can get really fussy and they are like ‘Give me that.’ And they do it themselves. But I tweak it for sure, you know, it needs to be tight here, not too tight there, with a little fold there, since I’m able to do a 360 degree bird’s eye view and see the whole thing.”

“[The advice I always give here is] not to color her hair when she wants it to grow. Taking a break prevents damage. [What advice does she ignore?] ‘Don’t color your hair.’”

“She has a sex appeal without trying to be overtly sexy. She’s a golden girl, head to toe.”

“Her willingness to try new things is the best part.”

“I first met Jennifer Aniston when she was shooting the pilot for Friends. Her manager brought her to the salon and said, ‘Chris, I’ve got this great girl, but she needs a little help with her hair.’ I wanted to get rid of her bangs, so I layered her hair while they were growing out. That’s how we ended up with The Rachel cut. For the past 11 years, I’ve done Jennifer’s hair for pretty much every event. Once, when I got to her house, she still hadn’t washed her hair, and her nails were wet from a manicure. I actually got in the shower and shampooed it while she held her hands up in the air. And, as you’d expect, we’ve been close ever since.”

“After I gave Jen a French twist for Monica’s wedding on Friends, she said, “Chris, if I ever ask for a French twist again, remind me that I hate them.” For that reason, and because she has gorgeous hair, I don’t do many updo’s on her. One of her favorite styles is just glassy straight and parted off-center. If it’s going to be a long night, like the Emmys, I spray PhytoVolume Actif Maximizing Volume Spray at the crown after I towel it dry. Her hair is fine and straightens easily with a round brush and a blow-dryer, but there’s a lot of it. I normally go over the whole head with a flatiron without getting closer than one inch from the roots. Then I’ll finish with Kérastase Serum Nutri-Sculpt on the ends. Lately, I’ve pulled her hair into a loose side ponytail, which looks adorable over one shoulder.”

“When Jennifer was filming Along Came Polly, she needed a rougher, wavier texture to match her character. This style also looks great with a straight gown, like the one she wore the Golden Globes. I always start with clean, damp hair, make an off center-part, and push her bangs to the side. A little PhytoVolume Actif Maximizing Volume Spray at the crown lifts the roots. I tousle her hair with my fingers as I blow it out, and when it’s 75 percent dry, I switch to a diffuser to remove the remaining moisture. Once her hair is dry, I wrap random sections around a curling iron for imperfect waves. Her bangs can be tricky because if they’re too smooth, they won’t match the rest of her hair. I usually dab Tancho Pomade on my fingertips and run them through the bangs to rough them up.”

“Christian Slater’s publicist thought I was good with hair and introduced me to Courteney Cox. Courteney had just done Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and had a bad haircut – so they called me in. She was working on the pilot for Friends, and we hit it off. At the same time, I was working with Patricia Arquette, whose manager was also representing a new actress named Jennifer Aniston. The manager recommended that Jennifer come to the salon where I was working. I cut Jennifer’s hair for the Friends pilot, and the next thing I knew, the show was taking off, magazines were referring to my haircut as “The Rachel,” and People was calling me for an interview.”

“I was in Liberty House for 16 months. I didn’t work at all for the first ten – I was focusing on getting sober. And I had some very good friends calling me. Courteney, Jennifer, my agent and Cameron Diaz were all there for me.”

“One day, Jennifer came to see me at a salon where I had started working and told me she was getting married. We had always talked about me doing her hair for her wedding. So when the time came for her to ask, I said yes. I wasn’t nervous. I felt ready. The first comeback job I got was a high-profile celebrity one – the biggest I’d ever had. I was right back in the game, and I didn’t have to start at the bottom. It felt like a gift.”

“I’ve been doing Jennifer’s hair forever. When I first met her, she had long, one-length hair with bangs, and she was like, ‘Don’t cut my hair – I want my hair long.’ But I’m a hairdresser, so I obviously cut her hair and told her she needed to grow her bangs out. I cut a couple inches off and layered it from her bangs down to the ends. Then I taught her how to pin the bangs over with a bobby pin and make them flat – remember how everyone was doing that on the first year of Friends? Six weeks later, she came back to the salon for another haircut – her bangs were longer, and we just cut a little bit more off her length. The next thing you know, her bangs were down to her chin, and the rest of her hair was at her shoulders in these long, loose layers that sort of flipped out – and that’s what we called ‘the Rachel.’”

“I’m always inspired by other hairdressers, models, fashion, and magazines like Elle. For the Rachel, I was inspired by a model named Beri Smither – Ward Stegerhoek did her hair at the time. She was wearing this really great shag haircut – it wasn’t the Rachel, but it inspired me. These days, though, Jen likes her hair on the longer side with her layers grown out.”

“She has naturally wavy, medium-texture hair, and she has what you would call good hair – it goes curly really easily if you scrunch it, and if you blow-dry it straight, it stays straight but with body.”

“She loves having her hair shampooed fresh and clean. She shampoos and conditions pretty much every day – if she’s going for the day-old-hair look, she prefers to create it using products. The shampoo and conditioner she’s using right now are my shampoo and conditioner. I used her and Courteney Cox as my guinea pigs. Jennifer uses the products every day. She also loves deep conditioners – I’ll do professional treatments at my salon using Shu Uemura products.”

“Oh, God, we used to laugh – she loved Aussie 3 Minute Miracle back in the day. We would use that stuff. We loved the smell of it. They also have that Aussie Sprunch Hairspray – we’d use that, too.”

“I cut her hair religiously every six weeks, but between visits, she takes care of her hair, she really does – she doesn’t rip through it when she brushes it after a shower. And she lets her hair dry on its own when she’s not working. She likes to wear her hair natural, and she’s good at styling it on her own.”

“She’s not one to say, ‘Oh, I want something really funky.’ She likes pretty, sexy hair. ‘Pretty’ to me is adding texture, and ‘sexy’ is undone-looking hair. If you look at her hair, it looks like it grew out of her head like that – it doesn’t look like a curling iron touched it. We never use curling irons or flatirons on her hair. We always try to work with her natural texture and use round brushes to give a soft curl. The modern sleek look can be good for photo shoots, but when Jen’s walking the red carpet or doing press, she feels more comfortable with natural-looking hair.”

“She likes ponytails or really quick natural-looking buns [for the red carpet] – ones that look like she did them herself. And, you never see this, but off the red carpet she really likes wearing low, loose braids on both sides of her head. She’s a real down-to-earth girl – she loves the beach, loves nature, and loves animals.”

“For the Elle September cover shoot [of 2009], I used Shu Uemura Depsea Repair Foundation Essential Hair Prep at the crown of her hair and Bumble and bumble Surf Spray at the ends [to style her hair curly]. Then I do what I call a ‘bad blow-dry.’ I vary the sizes of the round brushes – twisting the hair around them – so that I leave the hair halfway dry, halfway wet. This way, I pull the curl out but allow the hair to go into its natural form. The Surf Spray really helps to add texture to the hair – it gives it that day-old-hair look on the same day. [We use different-size round brushes] because around the bottom of the hair, we like it to be longer – so I use a large round brush there. Around the front, I use a longer one, and at the crown area I use a smaller one because it creates fullness. I always blow-dry the roots straight – about two inches – and let the ends be a little curlier. I also like to blow-dry the hair around her face with a few strands tucked behind her ears. When you untuck the hair, a nice frame is created around the face.”

“When I blow-dry her hair straight, I like to use Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Oil – it’s brand-new, and unfortunately it’s only available in the UK, but it’s awesome. Shu Uemura sent me some of the product six months ago, and I’ve been using it on Jen’s hair ever since. I just pump a pea-size drop into my hand, rub it through the ends of her hair while it’s damp, and blow-dry it straight using a round brush. I don’t use any of the Essence Absolue Oil in the root, though, because we like the roots full – she’s not liking her hair really bone-straight anymore; she likes it with some wave. Sometimes we’ll bend the brush a bit and add straight waves so that it’s smooth and straight but not flatiron-straight. Once I’m done blow-drying, I use a tiny bit of the Essence Absolue Oil to add gloss and texture at the ends.”

“I’m always inspired by iconic women—anyone from Mia Farrow and Julie Christie to Brigitte Bardot and Peggy Moffitt. Faye Dunaway’s hairstyle in Bonnie and Clyde was the inspiration for Jen’s bob [which she had 2000-2001.] It was fun – you know she likes to chop her hair off about every five years. We’ll even her hair up and lop off a few inches. She’s actually overdue for a short cut – we’ll probably be doing that soon. But it won’t be because of trends; it’s because she finished three movies, she has a lot of press to do, and it just makes the hair really nice, thick, and full. We wouldn’t do the same bob as before; we’d do something a little different.”

“[Jen's hairstyles have] changed slowly, via texture and length. I know that it appears as though her hair hasn’t changed much over the years, but if you look at a timeline of her hair, you’ll notice that she’s always on trend – for example, we’ll change her part to the side or down the middle or we’ll pull it back in ponytails. That’s her thing – she likes to be comfortable but trendy. Even if she’s wearing a simple black dress, it’s going to be the newest black dress.”

“She doesn’t feel the pressure to take fashion and beauty risks because she’s more concerned about other things. She loves her house – she just built this amazing house. She loves her dog, she loves her friends. She’s always like, ‘I’m having a pizza party tonight – come over,’ you know what I mean? Those are the things she has fun with. Not only is she a great client and fun to work with, but she’s also one of the greatest friends I have. She seriously is – she knows how to be a friend, and she has taught me how to be [a] friend. I’m the luckiest person in the world.”

“[Now, after she grew out The Rachel, her hair is] just long. She curses me every time I trim a tenth of an inch.”

“Brad [Pitt] just adores her. Period.”

“I’ve known her a long time, and she and I would talk about the day she gets married. There were big expectations, and this, [her wedding with Brad Pitt in 2000] went way beyond that, way beyond. It was a great and happy day.”

“People really relate to her. She’s just like a normal girl, you know what I mean? She’s quirky and funny, and she doesn’t take things too seriously.”

“When she gets dressed up, she looks cool and sleek and not like a poodle with a bow in her hair.”

“She’s got naturally curly hair—not curly-curly, but with lots of body—and she likes a good blowout. This is not flatironed—it has that openness around the face. That’s one of her favorite hairstyles.”

“Michael Canale and I have been doing Jen’s hair for over fifteen years. And she has the kind of hair which I love. Hair that’s a pretty color, hair that doesn’t look colored. You know, actresses do it for characters all the time. They go from brunette to bleach-blond and I think it’s done right but there is… It’s an honor, for sure.”


John Melick (half-brother) said:

“[Our parents' divorce was] like a slap in the face for her.”

“I’d always had the worst luck with cars. She decided, ‘Enough is enough.’ [On Christmas Day,] she told me she had something in the garage and could I help her carry it in. It was a Bronco with a big red ribbon on it. That’s Jennifer.”

“I think [the divorce of her parents] made her the strong, independent person she is today.”


Eva Mendes said:

“She looks pretty good.”


Sue Mengers said:

“I asked Jen to adopt me.”


Debra Messing said:

“Jennifer is so lovely – you forget she’s famous after about three minutes of talking to her.”


Jennifer Meyer (jeweller and friend) said:

“I try to always send her pieces that I think reflect her innate sense of style. Simple yet elegant with an occasional touch of color.”

“I love that the pieces allow Jen to shine through. It never feels like they are wearing her, but rather the other way around. You see the beautiful woman, not necessarily the jewels, and that is the goal.”

“Jennifer has such an amazing, innate sense of style. Ultimately, Jen always knows what her character should be in and has the final say. She is not only an amazing model for my jewelry but I am also lucky to call her a friend.”

“Jennifer Aniston is a style icon both on and off the screen. She’s as beautiful as they get, has the greatest style and whenever I get the opportunity to send her jewelry, I get really excited. And I know she’s gonna pick exactly what’s right for her whether it fits her character or her everyday life.”

“Whenever I get a phone call regarding a project for Jen, I grab as many beautiful pieces as I can. Jen is the ultimate style icon and completely hands-on when it comes to crafting her character’s look. If my jewels happen to fit into that vision, then it is such a pleasant surprise.”

“I hit the jackpot. If somebody said, ‘Who do you aspire to wear your jewellery?’ I would have said Jen.”

“She starts a frenzy whenever she wears anything. I’ve gotten calls from around the world. Everyone wants what Jen wore. That’s the power of Jennifer Aniston. She never tries to be something she’s not.”

“She’s the greatest girl, so any party that she’d throw would be a lot of fun.”

“She makes a place where people want to come and hang out.”

“I design my pieces for me, my fans, the everyday woman. I have an amazing group of girlfriends. Some of them happen to be the most beautiful women in the world. Jen Aniston. Who’s more classic than her? She wore this little tiny heart necklace – it’s just a testament to Jen Aniston. Because anything she touches – things turn to gold. The moment she wore this in Marley & Me, it became one of my most popular pieces.”

“I ran into a couple of girlfriends of mine and they were about to go style Jen Aniston for The Break-Up. And they said, ‘Oh, these are great samples. Can we go show Jen?’ And I was like, ‘God, no! I’ve never shown anyone these!’ And they said, ‘Oh, you never know what she’s gonna choose.’ Low and behold, I get a call from The Break-Up. ‘We need three of each of these. The leaf necklace, the leaf ear rings.’ The Break-Up came out and the most beautiful Jennifer Aniston put that leaf on the map for me.”

“There is no doubt I find Jennifer to be very hot, smart, funny, down-to-earth and a great actress. She is creative and seems to be on top of her business as well. Most importantly, she seems like someone you could take home to meet mom — yet, behind closed tour bus doors, she could rock your world. I am really just stating the facts as I see them. [I] respect [Jennifer's and John Mayer's relationship], but should John fall out of the picture for some reason… I’m just saying.”

“Jennifer Aniston is smokin’ hot, smart and funny. You could take her home to mom and grandma. But behind closed doors she’d rock your world.”


Lea Michele said:

“Watching Jennifer Aniston on Inside the Actors Studio… she is so beautiful.”


Bette Midler said:

“She’s a great girl. She’s got everything going for her.”


Tabatha Minchew (co-star in Wanderlust) said:

“I played Wayne’s friend, he is a commune nudist played by Joe Lo Truglio. Basically I tagged along with [Joe's character Wayne], every time you see me you see him. Most of my role takes place on the commune. Jennifer and Paul’s characters come to the commune and that’s pretty much where it all happens… it goes down right there.”

“It was amazing! It was absolutely amazing! I thought I was going to actually freak out the first time I saw Jennifer, but it was very calm. She walked on to the set and said ‘Hi’ to everyone. She didn’t treat anyone like they were nobody and even the extras that were there… she would say ‘hey’ to them and Paul did the same thing. They were very normal and it was so weird because you would think these huge names would be like stuck up or whatever but they were like very normal. It was just really awesome to see them on set especially with how cool they were.”

“Wanderlust is definitely my favorite right now as far as like the cast and crew. The set was just fun to work on and everyone was just so awesome and laid back. Normally when you have a big name on the set everyone is like, ‘Oh my gosh, don’t get near them’ and this and that, but this movie wasn’t like that. Everybody was very laid back and cool. So that’s definitely my favorite right now.”

“My favorite actress… I’m going to have to say Jennifer Aniston, because she is totally different than what people think. She is not what people think. I like her because she can do it all. She can do action, comedy series, she’s really on top of the world right now. Then she gets all of this done without bringing her personal life into her job. Despite [tabloids and media], she is still out there doing work, getting it done. It is just awesome to be able to see that. Even when I was on set you know… watching her, and she never let any of her personal stuff affect her; it was just awesome! It’s hard to do that if you have stuff going on at home, she definitely was able to keep that off the set and continue to work. I hope I can be like that.”


Dannii Minogue said:

“Jennifer Aniston always has the ultimate glowing summer skin, year round. How does she do it?”

“It is essential to have the right people seen in your clothes. That’s the culture we live in — people see things on their favourite celebrities and they want it for themselves. Everyone wants Alexa Chung, but if we’re talking internationally, I would love to have Jennifer Aniston on board. Whatever she wears sells in buckets.”


Helen Mirren said:

“Oh, you can’t work at [chemistry]. That either happens or it doesn’t happen. It’s very, very mysterious. No one can compute. If they could, it is the ultimate magic in a bottle, a lightening in the bottle kind of thing. And if they could work that one out, you’d be a very, very wealthy filmmaker. They can’t work it out. They keep trying to, don’t they? Cameron Diaz, Tom Cruise. Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher. They keep trying. Jennifer Aniston and everybody in the world. Please! It must work with someone because we know how brilliant she is. But it’s very difficult. It doesn’t happen easily.”


Jay Mohr said:

“People lined up on the street at seven o’clock in the morning, five deep, to watch her get out of a car and walk into a trailer.”

“Jennifer! She’s very popular. She’s on a show called Friends, they tell me.”


Heidi Montag said:

“I’m so excited to be working with Jen. I’ve looked up to her my entire life – she’s so sexy and funny and such an amazing business woman. I’ve always been ‘Team Jen.’”

“I read that Jennifer had banned me from the premiere for being too polarizing, but I know now that it wasn’t true. It never really made sense to me because Jennifer is such a sweetheart and she even commented before on a red carpet about how interesting and fun it was to have me in the movie.”


Shemar Moore said:

“There is one particular person in this town that I kind of got a little crush on. A lot of guys got a crush on this girl but she can’t seem to find that man who can get it right and I just want to raise my hand and try. And that’s Ms. Jennifer Aniston.”

“She’s a sweetheart and I mean, I’m not going to compare myself to anybody. I’m a fan, I like what she does and just the way she carries herself. She just seems like a sweet lady.”


Caitlin Moran (British broadcaster, TV critic) said:

“I prefer to see Jennifer as a beautiful, serene millionairess with a close circle of friends, a style aesthetic that really works for her, and a string of unsuitable lovers that are, somehow, lots of fun.”


Piers Morgan said:

“I actually met Jennifer Aniston at one of the Oscar parties. I really liked her. Seriously. A very, very nice lady. Funny and warm.”

“[Bill O'Reilly] is being rather misogynist, isn’t he? It’s because in reality a lot of women are left single by dysfunctional men who decide to impregnate women and run off. So a lot of women have no choice. And I think what Jennife Aniston probably meant is that she’s standing up for all those women out there who actually get left by heartless little rats and have to bring up their kids on their own. And that’s probably where she’s coming from and I have a lot of sympathy for that. I think if less behave in such a fecious manner, it would be a much happier world. And of the choice of Bill O’Reilly bringing your kids up, I’d probably stick to being on my own.”


D. David Morin (co-star in Muddling Through) said:

“Right from the beginning I felt she was just a genuine, hard-working actress.”

“Her timing was innate. My friends call it throwing strikes. It’s the ball you would always want to throw in baseball. If you’re really on your game you’re throwing strikes, always putting the ball right on the corner of the plate, on the spot, because you’re really that good. Jennifer always threw strikes – every rehearsal and every performance. Funnily, she knew exactly how to play a line so she really never got enough notice for what she was doing.”

“She could just give a look. She knew just how to milk [the audience reaction] in the right way – not too much, not too little. If you have a good line, you’ve got to stop and wait till things settle or else you’re walking in on the laugh. Personally, I had to get used to that. Sometimes you will get some coaching. After rehearsal the director will have seen where there’s a laugh and will tell you when to hold. Jennifer knew it instinctively.”

“At the time she was doing Muddling Through, Dan [Daniel McDonald] was definitely her boyfriend and he was in New York and in town on occasion. I don’t remember him as this appendage everywhere she went. It wasn’t like that at all.”

“I think maybe she was more of a girl next door when we did Muddling Through but she was still very attractive with the most beautiful eyes. She has this ability to make everyone feel at home. She was genuinely interested in everybody and that made them feel special. It was just effortless with Jennifer.”

“We were still hanging on to see if we would get another order but Barton [Dean, creator of Muddling Through] was gracious enough to say to Jennifer to go ahead with Friends. He basically let her out of the deal. I think he could probably see the writing on the wall for Muddling Through and there was no sense in tying up a young actress who had to go somewhere else. Going from a thankless role on Muddling Through to a great role as Rachel, where she absolutely shines, was no contest. When you watch the pilot of Friends you can see the difference.”


Neal Moritz (producer of The Bounty Hunter) said:

“I’m a huge fan of Jennifer Aniston and I’m a huge fan of Gerry Butler. I’ve tried to do many movies with the both of them. When this came up, I thought that the combination of Jennifer and Gerry would be a really great, exciting combination.”

“I just love the interactions between Jennifer and Gerry in this movie. There was so much playfulness between them, and their relationship evolved over the course of the movie.”

“Jennifer Aniston is obviously a beautiful, attractive, free-spirited, independent woman, just like her character in this movie. We really wanted somebody who had strength, who not only could do comedy but also had some vulnerability to her as well. I think that she really embodied that for this character.”

“There are a lot of stunts in this movie, between golf carts flying down hills and going into lakes, and between cars crashing and people jumping over walls… Jennifer and Gerry were game to do as much of it as we would allow. There’s nothing better than the actors actually doing it themselves, for us, as audience members to believe it.”

“Jennifer Aniston is obviously a beautiful, attractive, independent woman. And we really wanted somebody who not only could do comedy but had a strength but also had some vulnerability to her as well. And I think she really kind of embodied that for this character and I think it took what was on the page and just made it so much better.”


Dermot Mulroney (friend and Gavin on Friends) said:

“It’s a fantastic cast. What I was struck with is how well they got along. And of course Jen is just a delight all around. It’s not just her charm and her good looks – it’s that other kind of unique appeal.”


Brittany Murphy said:

“I think that she’s classic, classy, beautiful, lovely… just the greatest.”
