Margaret Nagle (writer) said:

“I’m currently working on two projects for Jennifer Aniston. Oh, that one can sing and she’s such a joy to work with.”


Kathy Najimy said:

“Thrilled to be a part of [Five]. Really thrilled that my really good friend is directing it. And, you know, it’s like getting to have a play date together.”

“Funny! My girl killed it again [in Horrible Bosses]!”

“That’s just like a regular Tuesday for us, [the way Jen's character is in Horrible Bosses.] She’s so many more things than people think she is. That’s definitely in her.”

“My first impression of her were the ones I have now. She’s always been very supportive of me and my activism. Whether it’s AIDS things or choice issues, you name it, she’s done it. Now she’s Queen Of The World, but there’s no big challenge.”

“You go through a lot of different relationships with friends, but never was I absolutely positive like I was with Brad. I saw how much he loved her. I went home and I was weepy about it. She was 100 percent herself with him, and that’s all I really wish for my friends.”

“Her clothes are the exact same. Her T-Shirts, her little tank tops, her cargo pants and her flip- flops.”

“There’s no insecurity going on [between Jen and Brad]. They’re themselves. They do the things you and I do: go to restaurants, play games, go to work, go on trips. They really, truly are in love with each other.”

“I think she handles her fame with extraordinary grace and I mean, she’s literally one of the most famous people in the universe. And, at the same time, really one of the kindest, authentic, original, wonderful people I’ve ever met in my life.”

“It’s not like she woke up one morning and said, ‘I’m mad at my mom.’ She’s really made such huge efforts to try to get it straight. But sometimes it’s more productive to say, ‘Distance is going to heal this.’ That’s where she is now.”

“She cares about what people think of her.”

“Jen gave a toast [at my 50th birthday party] along with her best friends, who I call the Pink Ladies. They inducted me into their group and gave me a Pink Ladies jacket of my own.”

“One of the great things about Jennifer is that even though she is in this business, which is very, sort of, canny and competitive, she has emerged with like this really tight great group of women friends.”

“I was on Veronica’s Closet and our stages (her and the Friends’ sets) on Warner Brothers were five steps away from each other, so, you know, at lunch I could come over, I could bring my daughter. She could come over, I could go sit with the women while they ate their lunch…”

“She struggled to get a job [after Friends ended]. She could pretty much get any job she wants but the right scripts. And scripts that are different and varied and shows what she has to offer. And that’s always a little scary.”

“I’ll tell you one thing for sure. Jennifer would never compromise a relationship for a career choice. Her loves and her friends now and at the end of her life will still be the most important thing to her.”

“I have never in my life met someone as genuinely kind and selfless as Jennifer. Ever. There are few people like that, you know?”

“She did fantastic [in her surprise performance at the 24-Hours Play in 2010], and the crowd went wild. What’s not to love? It’s Jennifer Aniston.”


Kevin Nealon said:

“Jen is very good with comedy, of course, and she works well with Sandler. They’ve been friends for a long time, so I think she knows all the rhythms and you know, what works for him, so she did bring a lot to the table.”

“Well, I’ve known her – here’s the thing with me and Jennifer Aniston. Great gal. When I lived in New York City, on Saturday Night Live – when I first got there, I lived on the Upper West Side, and – before I was a vegetarian, I walked down to this place called Jackson Hole. And there was this very cute hostess working there. And I walked down there, it was right down the corner of my street. And I just remember thinking, ‘Wow, she’s cute.’ She was probably about 19 at the time. So I would just go there occasionally and just look at her. I was too intimidated to talk to her. And it turned out it was Jennifer Aniston. I don’t know why she’d work there, she had Friends. That was before Friends. But she eh, no, I’ve kind of – then I had a guest spot with her on her show called The Edge that a friend of mine created back then. So I knew her from that and then I was at an Ellen party. Birthday party. Ellen DeGeneres. And I ran into her there and she’s like, ‘Well, my birthday’s next week. Why don’t you come then?’”


Conan O’Brien said:

“If someone is on the show who’s been on before and we’re friendly, I go back to say, ‘Hi’ and I’m pretty sure I knocked first before I opened the door. There was a moment there when I walked in and there was Jennifer Aniston who had her pants half-way up. It’s the greatest thing that ever happened to me. I had the complete inappropriate response. I’m supposed to say, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry, Jen.’ Instead, I started [doing the victory dance].”


Dylan O’brien (Teen Wolf Star) said:

“Growing up I thought I was gonna marry Jennifer Aniston… there’s still a chance.”


Chris O’Dowd said:

“I love Jennifer Aniston. I would always say yes to Jennifer Aniston.”


Georgie Okell (British Channel 4 presenter) said:

“Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler are the funniest people I think I’ve ever met.”


Ken Olandt (co-star in Leprechaun) said:

“Some actresses are nothing but drama. They are such high maintenance but Jennifer was very cool, a real trooper. There really wasn’t much dialogue because the director preferred quick cuts but Jennifer was always prepared.”

“She had great poise. She was also really funny off-camera. I would say her humor was quite sophisticated, witty if you like, and she had great fun with the crew members.”

“I think Mark Jones [the director of Leprechaun] was quite attracted to her which is always difficult for an actress. He was also a little jealous and we would laugh about what direction I would get from him versus her. Hers were long and involved with detail while mine were short, two-word directions like ‘More surprise’ or ‘Less surprise,’ whatever emotion was required. It was funny because it’s so common on sets for this to happen. But Mark kept us laughing because he wouldn’t hide it and is a very funny guy and a talented writer.”


Jamie Oliver said:

“Jennifer’s a friend of mine, she’s a beautiful, beautiful character. She was perfect to be a part of Oprah’s Big Give because that’s her personality — she’s a beautiful, giving person. It was lovely to have her involved, to have a friend be involved in the same show as me, and she comes along to one of the shows to pat the winners on the back. She’s the same in real life as everyone thinks she is on telly, you know?”

“I’m Jen – I’m in Jen World. And I see Jennifer a lot. She’s the most beautiful person; she’s adorable and kind and genuine.”


Lori Openden (former head of casting, NBC) said:

“Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry were technically not available. We had second position [on both for Friends]—we were taking a gamble that the show in first position wasn’t going forward. We auditioned other actors for Jennifer’s part, but nobody else was good enough. It was a pretty big risk. Her show was a comedy for CBS. They’d shot 10 episodes and had them on the shelf for six months. They still had the rights to air it.”


Clive Owen said:

“I was thrilled when Mikael said he was going after Jenny for the part. I am always a huge fan of the ones that make it look easy. I think Jennifer is as good as it gets and it’s not easy and she makes it look easy and she’s so brilliant.”

“I don’t like her very much. [No, I'm kidding]. She’s a gem. We had a really great time.”

“No one has seen her do this kind of part before, and it was a very smart choice to book Jennifer in. The bottom line is, she’s a really classy actress, incredibly smart and sensitive. She was just hugely refreshing, completely unstarry, completely uncomplicated. There was no fuss. With big stars you never know quite what to expect. But for somebody who’s lived under the spotlight for so long, she’s incredibly sorted out and grounded. That was inspiring, that you can be a real human being. It takes an enormous amount of intelligence to keep rooted amidst that glare.”

“Considering all the pressure she’s under, the magnitude of public interest, she is surprisingly grounded, a lovely girl and a very, very good actress.”

“She’s lovely, incredibly level-headed considering the spotlight that is on her. It’s an inspired casting, she’s a really great actress whether she’s playing a straight part or comedy.”

“Comedy is very, very difficult to pull off, you know? And she’s very, very good at it, and very deft, and you have to be very smart to play comedy well. So, it’s just applying it to something else. I don’t think that, you know, it’s-it’s a huge leap for her in that way. It’s just that she maybe hasn’t done it before.”

“I think it’s a great part for Jennifer, and I was delighted when she expressed interest in doing it. It’s very different from anything she has previously done and audiences will get to see an entirely new dimension of Jennifer Aniston. I had a great time working with her.”

“Weirdly, [my kids have] become obsessed by Friends. My oldest daughter is obsessed, and she knows I worked with Jennifer Aniston (in Derailed), so she’s like, ‘Call her up, call her up.’ I’m not calling her up. What are you going to say to her? They hit me up for weird things like that.”


Roxanne Pallett (British actress) said:

“My favorite, Jennifer Aniston. I have to pick Jennifer Aniston, yeah. Owen Wilson is a bit of an animal himself.”


Trey Parker (Southpark) said:

“You know, when Comedy Central asked us to do a Thanksgiving episode, the first thought that went through my mind was, ‘Boy, I’d like to have sex with Jennifer Aniston.’”


Heather Parry (producer of Just Go With It) said:

“Love her… [The star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is] well deserved!”

“I’m really excited that Just Go With It has three strong roles for women. There aren’t a lot of great female roles out there these days. And it’s a great date movie which is why we wanted to target Valentine’s Day weekend. Ultimately, it’s about how important it is to end up with the person who knows you inside and out, the person who’s your best friend. February 11 is also Jen’s birthday so, hopefully, we’ll be celebrating all weekend long.”

“I really wanted to make sure the women’s hairstyles were different. Nicole’s hair is long and very precise, which says a lot about her character. Jen’s hair is tousled, like she just came in from the beach.”


Casey Patterson (executive producer of The Guys Choice Awards) said:

“She’s so famous, but she really got it. She came looking gorgeous and was so funny. The girls love to come to boys’ night, get dressed up and have a ball. Cameron Diaz says it best in the show’s opener: ‘Boys, we know you love us, and we love you right back.’”


Jordan Peele said:

“It’s a no brainer. Come live in the country with Jennifer Aniston for a couple of months.
You know what the crazy thing is? She may disagree, so I might be completely off with this but she’s kind of Rachel-y. I mean, you get what she presents, you know? She’s awesome, she’s open, she’s warm and she’s loving. She just pulls you right in — magnetic. Yes, I’m definitely a fan of Friends.”

“She’s hot!”

“Just meeting [Jen and Paul Rudd] is such a trippy thing. I’m a fan, you know? I’m a fanboy over here, so meeting these guys, it’s like stepping into another universe. It’s a bit of a lost touch of the Friends thing. I remember a couple of times in the middle of this. Very strange [to see Rachel and Mike together]. Very surreal.”


Amanda Peet said:

“I want boobs, a gentle six-pack and a perky butt. If I could choose an ideal body, I’d take Gisele Bündchen’s. Actually, I’d take a number of people’s bodies. I’d take Jennifer Aniston’s, too.”

“I love her, love her, love her.”


Rosie Perez said:

“Everybody has to find their own secret [to be able to perform in front of a live audience] – you can’t follow the norm, you have to find out what works for you. Unfortunately, first timers don’t always have enough time to figure it out if they’re not a theater veteran. And even the veterans think it’s tough, but they have a bag of tricks to dip into. For me, it’s all about knowing the lines. Once you do, you’re able to forget about them and be in the moment, which makes it feel much easier. I remember the first year Jennifer Aniston did [the 24 Hours Play], I couldn’t stand her – she was cool as a cucumber. It irritated me. I was relishing the hope I would see her sweat and it bothered me that she didn’t. But that was her method. She told me, ‘I don’t get upset because if I do, that’s the end of it.’ It’s a very different experience for everyone.”

“We had a real boost from Jennifer Aniston (doing the 24-Hours Play on Broadway). She was as sweet as pie. I really appreciated her coming because she raised the profile of tonight’s event and that is going to help so much. She didn’t have to do this. She didn’t have to take time out of her schedule.”

“The 24 Hour Plays people approached her and she said yes. But when she found out about Working Playground, she was over the moon. She said, ‘I’ll do all the press. I’ll do whatever you want.’”

“She’s got chops. She said she had performed Off-Broadway. She’s really, really good.”


Lucia Peroni (makeup artist for the 2010 W photoshoot) said:

“She blew me away — she was so lovely and genuinely nice. No bullsh*t.”

“[Gerard Butler] was very nice and the both of them together were really sweet. Obviously they’ve just done a movie together so they’re good friends. And they have good banter going on between them.”

“You can imagine you could be friends with her, she’s just a really cool woman. She didn’t have any weird hang-ups about being famous. You know how people can get demanding and difficult? She’s very unassuming. I know it sounds really awful, because it makes her sound bland and I don’t mean it like that, but she’s the perfect girl next door.”


Matthew Perry said:

“That’s The Miracle Worker, is what [that photo of a school play I did] is. That’s the story of how Jennifer Aniston drives.”

“Jenny – Jenny is a really hard worker. Jenny, being very sweet and stuff, has had some stuff in her life that she had to address and she just has. Right in front of our eyes I’ve watched Jen blossom into this beautiful woman.”

“She has an intelligent sexiness about her. She’s not making that much effort, and that’s what women appreciate.”

“Let’s just say you want to think twice before getting into a car with her.”

“Another person I’d walk through fire for.” (the first being Bruce Wilis)

“She’s not afraid to look kind of goofy and still be real.”

“That was the look, right? That didn’t sweep the nation.” – referring to a hilarious looking hairdo of Jen’s in high school

“We auditioned for a movie read called, if I remember correctly, Camp Cucamonga, which she got and I didn’t.”

“Ferris Bueller was, you know, a great movie and I think she probably had high hopes for it.” – referring to the short-lived series Ferris Bueller

“We all had our share of failed TV shows. Just goes to show you that one great person is not a hit.”

“I probably had more haircuts. But she certainly had the more famous one. She’ll still love if that came up. That’s her favorite thing to talk about.”

“God gave with both hands to Jenny. Yeah, she has personified that kind of – you know, she’s very beautiful and also can be really funny and that’s odd, that’s rare. And that’s why, I think, she’s been so successful.”

“She’s a very hard worker, and I mean mostly in her life. If there’s some issue, she goes and just works it out.”

“She’s worked hard to put herself in a position to do what she wants to do.”

“I don’t know anything that she is not capable of.”

“I can’t tell you the amount of times I walked into Jen’s room with some news of something that was going on in my life and she was really helpful and a wise person.”

“I think Jen can do anything she wants. That’s what I truly think. And I wouldn’t say that or show up here if I didn’t think any different.”

“That’s why she’ll be working ’till she’s 90, you know? She just grabbed that role [in The Good Girl] and even surprised people who knew how talented she was.”

“I enjoy Jennifer like no other.”

“Yes, I can completely understand why half of America has a crush on her. Not when [she's making] that scrunchy face, though.”

“People would throw up if they saw us, [the Friends cast], together. We’re so nice to each other.”

“We don’t gang up. It’s a group of people that really make fun of each other, but there’s never five against one.”

“You go through something like [drug addiction], and, boy, do you find out who really cares about you and who doesn’t. And these guys here [his Friends co-stars], well, they were amazing. I heard from them all the time [after I checked myself into rehab], and not one of them dropped the ball.”


Busy Phillips (actress on Cougar Town) said:

“I hope she comes on [Cougar Town]. She’s lovely. I’ve hung out with her with Courteney. She seems adorable. I think it would be fun to see her be really mean. That was what Lisa Kudrow did a little bit. She was mean to Courteney, and it was fun for me to see because I’m a huge Friends fan. Anything [Jen] would want to do I think would be great.”


Kyle Phillips (catcher for the San Diego Padres) said:

“[If I could invite any four people to dinner, it would be] Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn, Charles Barkley and Jennifer Aniston. Barkley’s hilarious. Anytime I listen to him, he cracks me up. I would throw in Tiger Woods, but I’m afraid he’d get in the way of me talking to Jennifer.”


Linda Phillips-Palo (casting director) said:

“She has the most chance of having a substantial feature film career after Friends. She really proved herself in The Good Girl.”


Simon Pegg said:

“Watching Along Came Polly on E! I bloody love Jennifer Aniston. She got funny bones that girl. Routinely underestimated.”


Judy Pickles said:

“[At the wrap party of Friends], the cast, Jennifer and Courteney, all of them, took the pilot script and read it. Marta [Kauffman] and David [Crane] were crying. It was so moving, you know, to read the beginnings of the endings. There was really… tears.”


P!nk (singer) said:

“We saw Just Go With It and I just adore Jennifer Aniston. I think she is ADORE-ABLE.”


Brad Pitt said:

“I don’t want them to say anything bad like that about Jen. She’s a dear friend of mine. No. No, [she didn't call me after what I said in Parade magazine.] But she’s also a seasoned veteran and she knows. You know, and she’s a valuable person. We spent seven years together. Come on.”

“Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly.”

“My day starts out, I have my coffee, kiss my wife goodbye, hop in the car, head down the hill.”

“I used to love taking off. I would do anything to go on some adventure. Now, as I get older, it’s a lot harder to leave. I’ve got a good home, a good wife, good friends.”

“I thought I was older than I was; I had already missed a year. We had to call my mum because even with math and knowing the year I was born, I could not figure it out.”

“You look at the couples who make a film together and it always comes out crap. There’s too much baggage. Like the sex scene between Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger in the remake of The Getaway. I mean, put her with anybody else and yeah, I’m paying. I don’t know what that is, but it doesn’t work. And fortunately, being married to Jen, I see her a lot anyway.”

“I love the extreme-sports channel, man, they’re maniacs. And funnily enough, Jen and I are going to take some cooking lessons because we’re crap in the kitchen. We suddenly got obsessed with the Food Channel. The English guy, the Naked Chef – yeah, Jamie Oliver, he’s great.”

“We do talk about [work], definitely. She’s great ballast when you’re trying to figure things out.”

“We talk about it all the time. I’m on to it, don’t worry. I think Friends is hilarious. I will be sad when that show goes off air. But I cannot wait for everyone else to see the things she can do, because that show is just one facet of her talent.”

“I’m unemployed, and Jen’s on a break, so we thought we’d travel.”

“We did well for a while there. We just didn’t participate. We just wanted to see if something was going to grow on its own without any outside influence. We just wanted to keep it special. Keep it ours.”

“Unemployed? That unemployed woman makes more money than I do!” (unemployed because Friends had finished)

“She’s saying goodbye to an era that meant very much to her [Friends]. There’s a sadness to it, but Jen is accepting it. There’s also this excitement in her about going into a new era. It’s exciting to stop and ask yourself, ‘Where will I go now?’”

“It’s a great time for Jen. It’s very interesting because a transition is under way. There’s the melancholy of saying goodbye to an era which was very important to her and gave her some amazing experiences [Friends], and now there’s the excitement of the unknown. What’s the next era going to be? She’s right in the middle so there’s a real pleasure and pain to all of this.”

“Jen’s in agreement that I won’t mess [our kids] up too much.”

“I loved the fact that I was basically off for two years before filming Troy, so we spent a lot of time together, which was a blessing.”

“I don’t know if people would find our lives that exciting. Jen and I just like to stay home, maybe order out a pizza or some Mexican food. It sounds simple, but we love it. We like the peaceful moments. We like nothing more than a lazy summer day with the dog on the porch.”

“Jen’s different. It would be like 9pm and Jen would be like, ‘Oh, I forgot to smoke today.’ She’ll have like 1 or 2 after a meal.”

“Our recipe is to put everything on the table, and then deal with it. We’ve become better friends because of it. That was the experiment going in and, I’ve got to tell you, if pays off. Jen’s softened me. Yes, without a doubt. I’m the more cynical bastard in the relationship and she’s more that warm, sweet, really intimate human being who slaps me around a bit. She’s great.”

“You know the answer to that. [The three women I'd take to a desert island would be] Jennifer, Jennifer, Jennifer.”

“Jen and I both wanted privacy [on our wedding day], but we also wanted to be outside. Jen finally said, ‘Look, if they get the picture, they get it. Don’t forget what the day is about.’ She was right. [But then, when we exchanged our vows] the press completely backed off. It shocked the hell out of me. I was like, ‘I love humanity!’ It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever been to.”

“One of the first designing couples I got into was Charles and Ray Eames, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald. Macdonald did a lot of the small details for Mackintosh’s projects. Jen and I kind of work that way. We just have fun. We’ve made a point now, where we’re living, that we have an art room. And with our marriage we’re combining our stuff – the amalgamation of stuff – we’re streamlining. In the place we just bought on the westside ( Beverly Hills ), we’re most excited about our art room, and that’s probably where we’ll spend most of our evenings. The art room was our chief demand and actually we took the biggest room in the house. When the day’s work is done, and it’s night, you can sit in front of a movie on television and have dinner. And you can waste a lot of time – and it’s not really wasted time.”

“I keep talking about this, and what surprised me was this sense of pride; I look over, I see my wife. We are embarking on this thing together and it’s very, very exciting. Wherever it takes us, we’ll see, but it’s different, very different. Look at this, every relationship you’ve been in until the one you’re in right now, technically, is a failure ’cause they’ve all split up. But mayby they weren’t because they ran their course, so I’m not so hung up on happily ever after, uh, go where you need to go. But in my case, I’m doing naked cartwheels. I’m very excited.”

“[She] definitely has a love [for design. But we have very different tastes.] She has an-uh-more matronly take on it.”

“We love to work with clay, draw, carve pumpkins here.”

“It was a laugh. I play a kid who was a friend of Ross and Monica’s from high school, but I can’t stand Rachel Green. She used to pick on me because I was overweight. I admit it was a bit of shameless promotion for a couple of movies I have coming up, but by the same token, Friends is a show that makes me, and a lot of other people, very happy when they watch it.”

“It’s tough, distance is a beast, it’s a beast. Fortunately Friends, you can find Friends in pretty much any country, there are a lot of phone bills. I get to see Friends in Spanish or German… so I get a little taste. It makes me happy… Or we also have web cams. We have web cams with the little email vibe. I’m new to this game but technology rocks! Uhm but we have these web cams and you can’t see movement really, it’s like every 6 seconds it takes a picture. Yeah, it’s kind of frozen like that. You’ll be talking and it’ll freeze like this and you’ll say something like. You’ll be saying something else and you’ll laugh but you still, you know, you just – She gets to see what room I am stuck in and I get to see her… it’s great. We’re doing our best.”

“I’ve no complaints. You know? We know the game, what we gotta do to free some time for ourselves and she came out and we got to have a great husband and wife weekend in Malta, so, you know it’s not impossible [to spend quality time together even with the paparazzis.]”

“Jen and I have been, well we succeeded most in getting everything on the table. That’s been our law at home. It’s been about our only law. Everything. It’s gotta end up on the table. It may take us a little while to get there but… And there is a great freedom that comes. And we’ve become better friends because of it.”

“I didn’t get to meet [Stedman at Oprah's birthday party]. I had a run-in. We were on the dance floor. Jen and I were having a little–having a little cuddle. It was great. Before–you know, a little dance. And I got my arm on her back, and all of a sudden my hand gets crushed, and I look up and someone’s jamming their boutoir into my hand, and I look up and it’s Stedman. And I go, `My God, does he not have feeling back there or what?’ It’s true. It’s true.”

“She’s – this is genuine. It’s truly genuine. She’s – there’s not an ill-intentioned bone in this woman’s body. She’s really – she’s really extraordinary that way and she has taught me a lot that way. She brings people together.”

“We’re still in negotiations [about having a baby]. We’re still in rehearsals. It’s going very well and I am excited about the future. I like girls. Little hers. It’s my dream.”

“[Our house is] so big I come home and I lose – I lose Jen. I can’t find her. I’ll come home and I’ll go, ‘Jen! Jen!’ I’ll hear this, ‘I’m back here, here, here, here.’ And there’s two stairwells. So I’ll go up one, I’ll try to find her. Meanwhile, she’s trying to find me. So we’ll end up, like, for five minutes, like, chase – ‘Where?’ – ‘I’m back here, here, here, here,’ chasing her, and then we’ll meet up somewhere in the middle.”

“To Jen and I, it’s always been about getting everything on the table and growing together.”

“She’s a girl’s girl.”

“I was more nervous doing [Friends] than… like anything else I’ve done. Yeah. Cause I’m such a fan of the show. I love this show, and suddenly I’m in it and–and I c – I can’t tell you. I don’t know why, but I did. Oh, I chunked my first line. No, actually that was actually great fun with Jen. But I did chunk my first line. I had to go back and start over. There wasn’t anything bad about it. It was fantastic. It was great fun. Seriously, it’s great fun. She really – she was more nervous for me than I was and kind of held my little hand through it and then we just and a laugh. It was great. Great.”

“Her emphasis is the home, friends, and family. We all kind of crowd around her like moths to the flame. She’s like a magnet; she brings a lot of people together that way. Jen’s the fireplace show provides the warmth.”

“Neither of us wants to be the spokesman for happy marriage, for coupledom. I’ll tell you what I despise: this two-becomes-one thing where you lose your individuality. We don’t cage each other with this pressure of happily ever after. You figure it out as you go along. We feel it out, rather than setting policies and rules. Jen and I always made a pact; that we’ll see where this thing is going. I’m not sure it really is in our nature to be with someone for the rest of our lives, just because you made this pact. You keep going as long as you keep growing. When that dies, we do. But it constantly surprises me. Just when you think you’ve gotten all you can out of it, you get knocked upside the head. It’s good fun. We still have that friendship; we still have a good laugh, which can go in and out depending on the dynamics and outside influences. It’s complicated, but that’s what keeps it interesting. We’re good at getting sh!t on the table. Then she tells other people and I get mad.”

“She really said that [I possess a "great natural comedic talent"]? I’m honored. But she exaggerates.”

“We were doing the fights on my [40th] birthday. I’d always said I was going to get something like a Rolls, then I got too into the energy conservation. No, I just came back and had a nice little quiet dinner with my friends and my wife. We had to do it after the fact, so it was a nice little dinner at home. But there was wine.”

“She is really sad to see [Friends] go, in a way and knows it’s a big change in her life. It’s like when you left college; that era is over. She made some really, really wonderful friends and had some times that meant a lot to her, but it’s also the excitement of embarking on the next era.”

“We would love [to work together. But] if you look through the history of couples who’ve worked together, the odds aren’t with us, so it’d have to be really hand-picked.”

“We haven’t gotten to play a lot of [board games], but we like backgammon.”

“We get our time; we really carve out time for us.”

“That’s absurd, she’s not like that [jealous of Nicole Kidman who was originally to star in Mr. and Mrs. Smith], she’s cool, she couldn’t care less.”

“Well there is two bits to that, cause I got a little crazy with [the press on our wedding day]… the paparazzi and I have this big game going on. And I started getting a little carried away with it and Jen smacked me around and remembered why we were there. And we wanted to do the thing outside, we wanted to write our own ceremony and we kind of gave up on it all. And something happened, at the very last minute when the ceremony started, the press backed off and I really have to thank them, cause they were, they were just so cool with this and they let us have our moment and they let us have what turned out to be a highlight of my life.”

“I found [Jeff Buckley] because, it was actually my wife had him. Had the disc. ‘Had him’ – she wishes! – Had the disc and it came on one night, and you hear that opening tune for ‘Mojo Pin,’ that haunting thing off in the distance. And I remember asking, ‘What is that?’ And she said, ‘That’s Jeff Buckley.’ Where have I been? Do I know nothing? And since then it’s just… been a bit of an obsession.”

“[Married life is] pretty good. [She's] cool, very funny, great to be with. [Would I do a movie with Jen?] Absolutely, I’d like to do anything with my wife.”

“I didn’t work at all for two years going into this film [Troy], so Jen and I got a lot of time together. We both accept this aspect of our business and we’re glad to see each other when we can.”

“Our recipe is to put everything on the table, and then deal with it. We’ve become better friends because of it. That was the experiment going in and, I’ve got to tell you, it pays off. Jen’s softened me. Yes, without a doubt. I’m the more cynical bastard in the relationship and she’s more that warm, sweet, really intimate human being who slaps me around a bit. She’s great.”

“Listen, man, Jen is a sweetheart. I think she got dragged into that one, and then there’s a second round to all of that Angie versus Jen. It’s so created.”

“We still check in with each other. She was a big part of my life, and me hers. I don’t see how there cannot be [that]. That’s life, man. That’s life.”

“She’s really extraordinary – she has taught me a lot. She’s one of the warmest people I ever met.”

“We bicker over household chores and who forgot to turn off the coffee machine. I believe I’m the one who does it all, and she believes she’s the one who does it all.”

“We talk about it all the time. I’m on to it, don’t worry. I think Friends is hilarious. I will be sad when that show goes off air. But I cannot wait for everyone else to see things she can do, because that show is just one facet of her talent.”

“The bathroom was the first thing in the house I worked on at the time Jen and I were really hooking up strong. Things are on your mind – and I guess I had a dirty mind at the time. It is a bit hedonistic in there. It is a sexy room, it works.”

“Jen gets a lot done when she’s asleep. She’ll , like – I think you’ve heard this story, I caught her outside one night. The alarm was going off, and I found her outside – literally, she had to negotiate through, like, three or four rooms, and I find her standing outside. We were living on the cliff that time. It was not good. Other times, I’ll hear drawers opening and closing in the other room, and I figure, ‘I’ll just go back to sleep, she’ll be back. She’ll get some stuff done.’”

“She’s fantastic, she’s complicated, she’s wise, she’s fair, she’s great empathy for others – and she’s just so cool.”

“I usually agonize over something for a few weeks after I’ve taken the part: ‘How to play it? How to do it?’ She just does it off the cuff. She’s good. She just gets it.”

“I’ve always known she was amazing. I don’t think anything blossomed in her this year [2002, The Good Girl] that wasn’t already there. It just seems the rest of the world is waking up to what has been there all along.”

“You know they have a perception of Jen from the show and they take her character as being man-needy, and so they present her that way, chasing, and that I don’t want to get – and they create this whole scenario, and then they say we’re getting married, and because I did a movie about Tibet, and because she’s Greek, we’re going to have a Tibetan – slash – Greek wedding, and we’re going to ride yaks into the sunset.” – Rolling Stone, 1999

“It felt great. Best haircut I’ve ever had [referring to his shaved head, as seen in Fight Club]. [I don't want to say where I got it because] it’s going to be a cute little moment. I don’t want cute moments, man! I want to be mean and ugly. No, Jen shaved it. We had a laugh. Please don’t make it a cute moment. Just say she shaved me – that’s it.” – Rolling Stone, 1999

“We’re pretty much on the same wavelength.” – when asked if Jennifer minds that he doesn’t believe in happily ever after, also from 1999

“I will say this about Jen: She’s fantastic, she’s complicated, she’s wise, she’s fair, she has great empathy for others… and she’s just so cool. [I like her] very much. But what I ask is that she does not hold anything back – I don’t want to stifle that. We’re pretty much after the same thing – I’ll say that. Just great respect for each other. It’s fantastic. We don’t get hung up on… there’s no offense ever taken.” – Rolling Stone, 1999

“Yes, I’m in love with the leading lady but I’m also a movie snob and you have to take my word on this, [The Good Girl]‘s a gem.”


Julie Neal Pitt (Brad Pitt’s sister) said:

“She did great. She was just so real [when the Pitt family first met her. And] there was definitely a huge difference [from the way Brad had behaved toward previous girlfriends].”


Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi said:

“Jennifer Aniston [was the most exciting celebrity I've met]. To meet an A-list celeb like that was amazing. I met her at an awards ceremony. I don’t think she knew who I was! I went up to her and went, ‘Hi! I’m a fan.’ She was very sweet, very polite, very beautiful. I was totally awestruck.”

“I would definitely hook her up with Pauly [D] because he’s the most – hottest and he’s the most humble [of the Jersey Shore guys]. Pauly D wants [her].”

“Just met Jennifer Aniston and [Oh my God] she is amazingly gorgeous! Big fan!”


Freddie Prinze Jr. (guest star on Friends) said:

“Jennifer is the sweetest, most sincere person… not to mention she is so damn funny! I completely lost it every time she screamed ‘Damn you, Geller’ from off screen while David was firing me as their nanny. I could barely get my lines out or keep a straight face. She is truly an original.”


Ellen Rakieten (executive producer of Oprah’s Big Give and friend) said:

“Jen’s house is a beacon. You always know you’re going to have a great time, and you’re going to leave feeling better than when you came.”

“She comes on one of the shows and delivers a really big surprise, something nobody expected. I always say that she’s everybody’s favorite Friend, and that’s absolutely what she’s like in real life. I had the pleasure of going out to dinner with Jamie, Jennifer, and some other friends the night before and she really truly is the sweetest person you’ve ever met. Jen gets a kick out of everything Jamie says, they’re buds and it was fun to be able to see that.”


Peyton Reed (director of The Break Up) said:

“The irony of having Jennifer Aniston making a movie called The Break-Up when she was going through her own was not lost on any of us.”

“It’s an anti-romantic comedy. They start playing on each other’s insecurities and there’s a level of gamemanship there that you can imagine gets pretty intense. It was kind of an adventue to be doing rehearsals and you look out and there all these guys with nine-foot telephoto lenses trained at you. I found myself being very protective of Jen, but she’s so amazing and such a caring person she wound up being protective of me. It was really unbelievable.”

“She is every bit a movie star. When she comes on-screen, you can’t take your eyes off her.”

“Vince and Jen had great chemistry. They worked so well on all levels – they were great together.”

“The film is a comedy that we tried really hard to ground in reality, so that a lot of the arguments this couple has as they are breaking up are very real. Working opposite Vince, Jen gets to flex her comedic muscles, which are formidable, but she also gets to do a lot of dramatic work in the movie. She just knocked it out of the park.”

“Had I not gone to the newsstand and seen the tabloids, I would never have known something of that magnitude was going on. She was able to come to work and dig in and just make it a joy every day. Only Jen can speak about her process, but her performance in the movie, when it hits those notes of pain at the end of a relationship, has an immediacy that I was just blown away by.”

“When I came on board, Vince was obviously attached, but we had not cast a Brooke yet. He’s also 6’5”, so you have to cast someone who can really be a presence in the frame. It takes a tough woman to be able to spar with Vince’s rapid delivery on screen, and Jennifer definitely holds her own. I loved the idea of the potential chemistry between these two actors.”

“Vince and Jen would stick close to the script. But after a couple of takes, when we knew we had it, we’d just let ‘em go.”

“Jennifer could relate to the film on a much more personal level, but she never let her situation impact the film set. If I didn’t see the headlines on the magazines and papers in the supermarket where I shopped, I wouldn’t have known anything that traumatic was going on. There were never any tears on the set unless they were called for in the script.”

“It became very clear on Day 1 that [Jennifer and Vince] had crazy chemistry.”

“[Ann-Margret] is the perfect mom for Jennifer. They got along really well. [Ann-Margret] got a kick out of it.”

“It was fun making The Break-Up. It’s fantastic to work with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston as they are both at the top of their game. There was a great rapport with them on set.”


Andrew Reich (executive producer of Friends) said:

“Jennifer has an ability to make the audience empathize with her that’s unprecedented.”

“Jennifer has an ability to make the audience empathize with her that’s unprecedented.”


John C. Reilly said:

“A regular girl. She seems like the girls who were wearing her hairstyle.”

“Y’know, for all her popularity and glamour she’s kind of an “every-woman.” There’s something about her that girls across the suburbs of the world can relate to.”

“I’d heard of her, obviously, and her haircut surrounded me for a couple of years when every girl had it. But I was like, ‘Jennifer Aniston? That girl on the TV show? Wait, explain that to me.’”

“She’s the real deal, just really ordinary. She put to rest whatever questions people had.”


Rob Reiner said:

“She’s just absolutely brilliant. I mean, she’s sexy and adorable and plays comedy and plays very real and emotional. And it’s a rare combination when you find somebody who can do all those things.”

“Never brought that difficulty on to the set. Stayed focus, did what she had to do and it was absolutely remarkable. I have such admiration for her. Such strength in her.”

“Jennifer takes us through Sarah’s emotional journey. She’s sexy and adorable and plays comedy as well as very real emotion. It’s a rare combination to find in someone.”

“You’re not going to be able to type her easily. She has the same range as, say, Meg Ryan, who can do light, deft comedy and then turn around and do In the Cut.”


Richie Rich (Heatherette designer) said:

“She’s gorgeous – and so approachable! I just walked over and started talking to her. I think [her outfit] was beige. Sorry, I was too busy looking at her mug – and the mug looked great!”


Kyle Richards said:

“I would want [the person playing me in the sitcom about my life] to be somebody that’s really funny and could capture the humor of being a mom and all the humor that comes with being on a reality show. So, maybe Jennifer Aniston or Jenny McCarthy. I don’t know, someone really funny.”


Emma Roberts said:

“I’ve never been one to buy celebrity perfumes but I am obsessed with Jennifer Aniston’s! Smells like summer.”

Obsessed with Jennifer Aniston’s new short hair! I want it!”


Julia Roberts said:

“[Brad Pitt]‘s sunshine. He is – sunny disposition. Sunshine. And his wife: moonshine. They are – ugh, just ugh.”


Sam Rockwell said:

“It’s an acting part. It’s not like I’m really going to have an affair with Jennifer. I have a girlfriend and I think she’s got a boyfriend – I don’t know. Ask the tabloids – they know better than me! But yeah, I know Vince Vaughn too. Vince is a friend of mine and Brad [Pitt] is a friend of mine. I’ve met Jennifer – she’s a lovely person, such a nice person.”


Adam Rose (co-star in The Bounty Hunter) said:

“There’s no way you can’t fall in love with her. She’s amazing – talented, charming and a sweetheart. [And] she’s got killer legs.”

“She can have her pick of any guy she wants. She could be married ten times over if she wanted it.”

“[If I had to choose between Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Aniston?] That’s tough, really tough. I’m gonna go with Aniston.”

“I don’t think she [has a hard time keeping guys]. I think she just does whatever she wants. People have this view of her like, ‘Poor Jen.’ I don’t think there’s any poor Jen. She’s a blast! She’s funny, she’s totally cool, she’s just easy to hang out with. She is a good person, for sure and she definitely doesn’t have any attitude or anything weird at all.”


Aaron Ross (professional BMX rider) said:

“Coolest person in Hollywood? Jennifer Aniston.”


Paul Rudd said:

“Well, lovely, beautiful – I mean, Jennifer has a quality and this is no secret because the entire world feels this way about her: you’re drawn to her, she’s light and she’s very sweet. And I liked her immediately. Interestingly – it’s interesting that it’s been this long, that we’ve known each other this long.”

“If I was Jennifer Aniston for a day, what I would do is, I would go through, like, a city center and I would start running in hopes that children would start following me like Rocky – ’cause I think that would happen if Jennifer just decided to go running down the street. And then I’d keep it going and if I was Jennifer, God knows, I could probably run for 20 miles and not even break a sweat – unlike me, who can’t go 20 feet without… and then I’d get 1000 children. And be like, ‘Hey kids!’ And then I’d stand on a giant staircase and I’d put my arms around the group and say, ‘Guys, we did it. We did it.’”

“There are a lot [perks of working with Jen] but when you’re working and doing a scene, you are excited because you know the person you’re working opposite is really great. Funny. Fun to be around.”

“She didn’t sit in the corner watching and playing it cool [during the karaoke nights I hosted on set]. She belted it out. It’s same way with her acting: She totally goes for it.”

“Knowing that there were certain things that we wouldn’t have to try and create just because we have the benefit of knowing each other for as long as we have. There was also something kind of cool about really feeling the time. The first movie that we ever worked on together was The Object of My Affection and Alan Alda was in that as well. Now the three of us are hanging out years later and playing very different parts, but being able to be nostalgic. It was really cool.”

“Then of course Jennifer Aniston, she was a riot, Jennifer’s really cool.”

“Why would anyone in their right mind not want to [cast Jen in their movie]?”

“It is nice when you’re playing a married couple and you don’t really have to create too much of a fake history or just – we already have it. We’ve known each other for nearly 20 years, so… [22?] Really? Wow. So we met when we were like four. Get it? That was my joke. But yeah, it was really nice.”

“We’ve made out for decades.”

“Three words I’d use to describe Jennifer Aniston are fun, beautiful, friend.”

“Great. I’ve been friends with her for so long. She’s the greatest girl. It’s always nice when you get to work with people you like, because you spend months together. So it was great. She’s just so cool. She’s really talented and funny.”

“We’ve known each other for even longer than [13 years when we shot The Object of my Affection] but we did [look at each other and go, 'Look what we've accomplished since then.'] And Alan Alda is also in Wanderlust and was also in Object of my Affection, so the three of us, we had several conversations where we’d – memory lane type conversations. We took a picture and sent it to Nick Hytner, the director of Object of my Affection.”

“We actually smoked peyote offset a lot. Actually, do you smoke peyote or do you take it? I don’t know.”

“I remember when we were making The Object of My Affection, we couldn’t believe we were actually on a movie set making a movie. It was like, ‘We’re really making this movie together?’”

“I’m in the makeup trailer this morning. And all the women were talking about how much they love Jennifer Aniston. They don’t know her! But they do love her. People have the nerve to walk up and ask the most personal questions. The biggest testament to Jen is that she doesn’t make them feel stupid for asking. She graciously responds.”

“She discovered ‘fart in a can.’ That pretty much took over the entire shoot. Everyone was obsessed. I don’t care if you’re a surgeon or a plumper – farts are funny, and they never get old.”


Mark Ruffalo said:

“Who she is in the movie is not too far away from an aspect of who she is in her real life. There’s this sort of beautiful freedom with who she is and what she thinks. She [doesn't have] anything devised, you know? And I just think it’s really fantastic.”

“Knowing now what I didn’t know at the time, it’s an even greater testiment to her class and poise, you know?”

“Awesome. Love her. I had such a good time. So classy, kind, and in the face of everything that she was going through – which at the time I had no idea – I even love her more.”


Winona Ryder said:

“When I saw the episode [of Friends where we kiss], all you can see is hair and you don’t see lips. I was kind of bummed out because we got a couple of chances to do some pretty nice kisses. She’s a very good kisser.”
