Kevin Bacon said:

“She carries the movie [Picture Perfect].”

“We had a connection almost immediately. She has a real good sense of when something’s not playing true. That’s a great thing because when you’re working with someone like that it always challenges you not to fall into your own traps.”


Alec Baldwin (co-star on 30 Rock) said:

“Yes, Jennifer Aniston and Oprah. What more do you want? We’re only on episode four!”

“She’s so alive, she’s funny and beautiful. She’s got the comedy crazy gene. She was a perfect fit for the show.”

“It was the greatest day of my life. Whenever you do that with someone, it’s so fake. They’re getting paid to kiss you. I’m getting paid to kiss her. But she’s a doll.”

“Jennifer Aniston could be making films, she could be shopping, she could be buying a private island somewhere, she could be doing virtually anything she wants to be doing. But for her to come and do that with us, we are all very grateful.”

“Her wrist watch. I don’t want to say who the maker of the wrist watch is, but she had a wrist watch on that was this very beautiful, very rare, very fabulous wrist watch, and you just knew that Jennifer Aniston would have on a wrist watch that you had never seen before — the most fabulous wrist watch.”

“I would love to see her, because she truly is a doll.”


Mark Ballas (dancer on Dancing with the Stars) said:

“I like Jennifer Aniston. If I could have any partner on the show it would be her. I wouldn’t mind cha-chaing with her, you know what I’m saying?”


Eric Bana said:

“One night in Malta everyone went out, and word got out that Brad was there, and it was like ‘Elvis is on the loose!’ You wouldn’t want to be him and Jen for all the tea in China.”


Christine Baranski said:

“This is funny — all I did with Jennifer Aniston is talk to her over the phone. I have never met her. I never got to meet her. We did phone scenes [in The Bounty Hunter] … I still cannot wait to meet Jennifer Aniston.”


Michael Baroni (teenage boyfriend) said:

“When it came to guys, she would pursue a guy if she liked him. I don’t think anyone could have convinced her otherwise. At fifteen, Jennifer wanted to get out there in the world and have relationships with a variety of different people. We were both young and we kind of expressed at the time that we were both getting a little uncomfortable with how much we felt for one another and we both agreed that we were young, and starting to feel serious about someone wasn’t a good idea, probably. We had both had serious relationships and weren’t ready for another. I never had a single argument with Jennifer, not a bad word, not anything negative.”

“It jumped out at me pretty early on that Jennifer was a pretty strong girl with acting. She was so focused on what she wanted for a career. You looked at her and you thought that if anyone can figure out a way to actually navigate her way to the top then she was probably that kind of girl because she seemed kind of pulled together for a teenager.”

“We just loved to come together in large groups. It was all very congenial. That was what Jennifer liked. She was just this type of person who loved hanging out with a lot of people and she loved being earthy. People gravitated towards her. Jennifer was never in isolation when I knew her… She was very much the leader of her own pack and very much the center of attention. She had a sense of fun that was infectious for people to be around. She would watch people do silly things and just burst out laughing. Or she would always be laughing at her own stories. You definitely knew when she was in the room.”

“She definitely was one of those girls who had matured more quickly for her age. I was pretty smitten.”

“[At a party], she had on this really hot red dress and, to be honest, looked like a Hollywood star even then. She definitely didn’t look like a typical sort of grungy teenager.”

“Her eyes were very grey and I thought it was the neatest thing having grey eyes with her darkish skin. They were really beautiful. She also had a fun smile – a really pretty, girlish, fun smile.”

“She had a lot of interest from a lot of boys.”

“She was crazy about [Michael Schoeffling]. I remember her going, ‘Oh my God, that guy is so cute,’ so I had to playfully tap her on the shoulder and say, ‘Hey, you, don’t say anything about other guys!’ It was always good fun with Jennifer.”

“We may have been only fifteen- and sixteen-year-olds but we probably looked like a twenty- and eighteen-year-old and we acted more like it as well. We never really discussed dating but we just hit it off and liked each other.”

“We spent something like three hours a day on the phone and we probably got much closer during that time than we did when we were together because we’d just talk about each other’s emotions and feelings and where we were in life and what we hoped to get out of it.”


Kym Barrett (costume designer for Rumor Has It…) said:

“Jennifer had some very strong ideas of what Sarah would wear. She didn’t particularly want ‘designed’ clothes, as Sarah isn’t exactly a fashion-plate. We ended up making some of her costumes but other things that she wears we bought and then altered to make them look more like something she would wear in the period.”


Drew Barrymore (co-star and producer of He’s Just Not That Into You) said:

“It’s kind of an interesting range of emotions to have in one character, but she packs it all in.”

“I am so bummed I am missing her [birthday] party. But I will wish her well. And we’ll celebrate on another night ’cause we’re friends, and we like to hang out.”

“[Jennifer] wears a black dress like no other lady on this planet.”


Jason Bateman said:

“Let’s be clear, there’s no movie [The Switch] without Jennifer.”
“We met in LA while we were both struggling and before she landed the role on Friends. I dreamed of marrying her when I figured out how to stop living a crazy life and got my act together. But it was only a dream and I was playing around a lot in those days – she tolerated my behaviour like that of some crazy guy who would show up at her house at midnight with a bunch of friends. But Jennifer was always very together and responsible.”

“As it turned out, I met my wife Amanda, who is actually pretty similar to Jennifer in the sense that she’s smart and level-headed.”

“She gets hired to play different versions of Rachel, really, as she would probably admit and then this role [in Horrible Bosses] comes along and she snatched it up quickly and I’m glad she did. She’s great in it.”

“Other than my simple good fortune, no, unfortunately [there's nothing going on between us despite having worked together three times now.] We work well together, and we have fun when we meet up, so, I’m guessing that might be part of it. We’ve known each other for a long, long time, and that counts for something when you just want to get on with the job. There’s a shorthand amongst friends, and you can get to the meat of the matter much, much quicker that way.”

“I’ve hit that.”

“Well, [hearing her utter such lines as 'You're going to f**k my slutty little mouth] felt like we weren’t making a movie at all, just hanging out at Jen’s place. I think people are going to flip when they catch Jennifer Aniston in this movie, because she just goes for it. She lets it all hang out, literally, and she certainly isn’t shy about delivering some choice lines either. You can tell that Jen had a wonderful time. Even if she did have to go home each day and wash her mouth out with soap and water.”

“I would do every single job and day of my life remaining with this beautiful, kind young woman. I would take all she could handle.”

“A couple of us spoke [at her hand and foot print ceremony] and it was really just an honor to be there for her.”

“We have been friends for a really long time now, actually, so it’s nice to work together, too.”

“We’ve always just really gotten along well. I think I was just fortunate to be a good fit for parts in her films.”

“I’ve got a great deal of dirt on Ms Aniston, and as long as she continues to hire me for her projects I will not show the pictures.”

“[We had] kind of an instant connection. Once we got the chance to spend every day with one another, it exponentially grew. We took what we had off camera and dragged it to the front of the camera. It was criminally easy. I was joking all day yesterday that we should probably give a lot of our money back.”

“I was playing a lot more back then, and she was very tolerant. She had her[self] together back then as much as she’s got it now. She was pretty inspirational. She was the kind of person that I thought, when I get my[self] together, I hope I find somebody that’s on it like she is. Amanda, my wife, reminds of a lot of her in that sense.”

“I’m a killer [in the movie] and she’s a boss. [I want to kill one of the bosses] but not her. My little angel.”

“It was probably a bad decision for me to speak today. People smarter than me have warned me that publicly speaking from the heart of one’s personal feelings for Jennifer could be about as dumb as trying to sneak a clock wrapped in wires past security at the airport. It’s ill-adviced, you’ll get unwanted press, you’ll scare the hell out of your wife. I considered all of this but decided it was worth the risk. Since I’m not bright, they say there’s no bad press and my wife happens to love her more than me. So I will be brief. Simply put, Jennifer gives stars a good name. I’ve had a pretty good seat since the early 90s to navigate all the twists and turns and for the last few years, I’ve been down near the front row to see this remarkable woman effortlessly maintain a class and a grace so genuine and inspiring that I’ve caught myself grinning, knowing that we simply share a friendship.”

“While I feel very lucky that my future will have Jennifer in it, I don’t feel nearly as lucky as the sidewalk because the sidewalk, for years long after we’re all gone, gets to include poured into its rigid cement a woman whose spirit is every bit as solid, whose integrity is every bit as unbreakable and whose body is every bit as hard. Ladies and gentlemen, the one and the only, Jennifer Aniston!”

“Jason [Sudeikis] and I, unfortunately, we did not get to swap talent spit, as it were. Charlie did all the talent with Jennifer.”

“We do [like working together]. I’d do 30 more [movies] with her. You know, she’s a great actress and an even better person, so… We didn’t have any scenes together in this one [Horrible Bosses] but we get to do this [press] stuff together, so we’re seeing a lot of each other and that makes us happy.”

“Justin [Theroux] is one of the greatest guys in the world and I’ve known she’s been like the greatest girl in the world, for a very long time. It’s long overdue and I couldn’t be happier for both of them.”

“I think you’re gonna really, really like what she does [in Horrible Bosses]. She definitely goes off of her ‘brand’ I guess, as they say. And does things people haven’t seen her do or say things people haven’t heard her say, so… I think they’re really gonna like it.”

“She’s a human being. She’s ye tall. She’s everything you think she is. There’s no secrets there. She’s fantastic.”

“She’s been at it for a while. She gets [comedy].”

“What is her name? She is fetching! So I would probably have to go with her [as my boss], too. Watch her.”

“We drew straws to see which one of us would play Dale [Jennifer's character's "victim" in Horrible Bosses], and Charlie won.”

“It’s a real testament to [Charlie Day's] acting ability [that he can convince us that he's not interested in Jennifer's character in Horrible Bosses].”

“Any project would be lucky to have Jennifer Aniston.”

“She’s really good in the film [Horrible Bosses]. I mean, she does something that’s not what people have seen the beautiful, demure, cosmopolitan Jennifer Aniston do. She’s a real pig.”

“I think we just did one or two scenes in The Break-Up but doing a whole film with her was as great as I had hoped that it would be.”

“Well, the friend part made it very easy and the fact that she doesn’t really – you can’t ever catch her acting, she’s very natural and easy and just does a lot of talking as opposed to acting which makes it pretty fun and helps me be better. She’s great.”

“[The kissing scene with Jennifer] felt … It was a good scene, I’ll say that. It was a good scene.”

“[We have been friends] for a long time, [so] it’s nice to finally work together. I think we just had one scene in The Break-Up. It’s been a lot of fun.”

“[It was] just dreadful [to work with her], she’s such a novice. No, it was great. She is a good friend and she really knows how to handle everything.”

“If you’ve ever hung out with a really beautiful, fun person, it’s like that. The most beautiful, most fun person you could imagine.”

“I make out with most of my friends, [so it wasn't a big deal to kiss Jen]. It wasn’t much of a change for me. Me and my friends love to share our affections for each other – physically, mentally, it doesn’t matter. It’s 2010 and I live in Los Angeles. Everybody’s touching out here. Fluids are getting swapped.”

“[Getting a] root canal would be enjoyable from [Jennifer Aniston]. I wouldn’t complain about her doing anything with me.”

“Actually, there’s a real good part for her in the Arrested Development movie. [However], there’s no offers on this one. She’s gonna have to sing for her supper. I don’t know, we’ll see if she’s available. She’s busy. She’s pretty famous; I don’t know if you’ve heard of her. She’s pretty backed up. Hopefully the guy who’s in charge will like her for that part because I’m going to suggest her.”

“She’s just Jen. Dirty, ugly. No. Funny. She’s kind of like, ‘Is my sister hot?’ I can’t really say that. It was a little bit weird to kiss her. It did feel a bit incestuous, not that I consider her my sister but… Jen and I just brought a lot of our friend history into this and therefore we really didn’t have to work that hard. It was pretty easy.”

“Jennifer Aniston was – she and I have been friends for a very long time, so it was nice to get a chance to work together for more than – I think we just did two scenes together in The Break-Up. But doing a full film with her was as great as I’d hoped it would be. We used every part of our familiarity and hopefully that’s seen in the film. I think it is. Especially since we’re supposed to be best friends, so it was nice to have that beforehand.”

“Jen has a clear, natural maternal instinct. She cares a great deal about the people she loves. That’s a good ingredient for motherhood.”

“[Jennifer] said something that isn’t really shocking. She’s a current woman. And [Bill O'Reilly]‘s reading from a very old book. She was gracious as always in responding to it, but the way he went about it seemed like a pretty unsubtle play for ratings.”

“I don’t like to work too hard. Jen doesn’t like to work too hard.” (why working on The Switch was great)

“[Jen]‘s great when it’s a film that’s not overly studio glossy, campy crap, right? Which [The Switch poster] probably looks like it’s not that because I’m holding a cup of fun.”

“It’s weird to kiss your friend on the lips in a passionate way. But that was – I can’t remember if – I don’t know if it was a passionate kiss, meaning tongue… There is a tongue conversation sometimes. I don’t remember having that with her, with this. I seem to remember something along the lines of, you know, here I come. Or, chew this gum. Something like that.”

“I’ve known Jennifer a real long time. We’re great, great friends and get along really well. We didn’t know each other as kids, just basically from the start of Friends. I was on another show on the same network, so we bumped into each other a lot. We were somewhat in the same circle of friends after that, and it was nice to finally get a chance to work with her. We’d always wanted to.”

“Jennifer and I have a couple of children together. And we like to work on the same projects, so that we’re not away from the kids. No one knows that yet, you do have the scoop here. No, we – there’s really no reason except just good luck for me. I really like her a lot, she’s great at what she does and you know, it’s a good thing whenever you get to work with a friend.”

“[Vince Vaughn's] one of the funniest guys I’ve been around. She couldn’t have picked a better person to spend a few months with while she’s going through all this. Vince really looks out for her.”


Carol Baum (executive producer of The Good Girl) said:

“Miguel [Arteta] and Jennifer really hit it off. ”


Helen Baxendale (Emily on Friends) said:

“[The Friends cast] know each other inside out and really are all friends.”


Preston Beckman (former executive vice president of program planning, NBC) said:

“I put Danielle Steele movies on opposite the Jennifer Aniston show on CBS. I killed [her other show, so she could be on Friends].”


Andrea Bendewald said:

“Jennifer Aniston and I are best friends since we were 14, so the greatest part of doing the show personally was working with Jen. And also I had gotten engaged a week before when I got a call to come to the part. I said, ‘I’ll do anything. I’ll carry a tea cup.’ I called Jen, and she had no idea. So we got to spend a week at work, talking about being engaged, looking at wedding dresses together, so I was through the roof. And it was a trip professionally, because I know the cast really well but to be acting with them in front of an audience really was kind of like a dream.”

“Don’t let her fool you. The boys always thought she was beautiful back then. The world around her has changed in the last few years. The way the world perceives her has changed. But Jennifer hasn’t changed. She has always been a light for those of us who know her. She’s not someone who sits around and gets her feet massaged. At the shower a few of her friends gave her before her marriage, I took her aside and said, ‘Remember when we were kids and we would say we were going to move to California and be actresses and marry beautiful men? Well, it’s all come true.”

“Jennifer has done some rebuilding, restructuring, realigning – and she came out this beautiful woman who is standing up tall and happy and full. I thought she was amazing two years ago, but now I look at her and say, ‘Slow down! You’re gonna start levitating soon, you’re so happy.’”

“She just kind of bounced up to me and went, ‘Hi!’, and I went, ‘Hi!’ and that’s really what started it. We’ve been friends ever since.”

“Jennifer’s acting teacher (Anthony Abeson) was the one who told her, ‘You’re funny. You’re really funny.’”

“Jennifer had interesting hairdos in high school. She wore, like a lot of make-up, dark eyes and she was beautiful.”

“She got an agent, right out of high school and her agent was in New York, so she started auditioning.”

“She was nervous (about her first off-Broadway role) and excited and she was also ready. She’d been studying acting and wanting to be an actress for so long.”

“I remember her saying to me, ‘I think this show (Friends) might be different from the other shows. It just feels really good and I love all the people on it. We had so much fun during the pilot.’”

“We took acting very seriously. Acting, studying and boys. Also, both our parents divorced when we were young, so we understood the pain of separated families, the back and forth of it all.”

“Jen’s relationship with Tate Donovan was great. You know, she learned a lot and then they moved on.”

“I think one of the reasons why Jennifer is so greatly loved by so many people is because of her open heart. One time she was staying at a hotel and a woman said to Jen, ‘I recently went through chemotherapy because I had cancer and Friends kept me going.’ And Jen was crying and they hugged each other.”

“Jennifer is pretty good about all the stuff that is said in the tabloids, like we’ll laugh about them. She’ll be like, ‘Did you hear? I’m a lesbian this week.’ She’s good at knowing who she is and not letting the media dictate who she is.”

“Her privacy is pretty important to her. And [Celebrity Skin publishing topless photos of Jennifer in her backyard] was an intense invasion of privacy. And she fought back and protected herself.”

“That whole January that the show was wrapping up – our friends call it Jenuary because it was a really emotional time for her when Friends ended. That was a chapter in her life that was, you know, spectacular.”

“When she’s talking to you, you are the most important person in the room. And you do feel special when you’re in her presence.”

“[At the beginning of her career], she started auditioning and she did commercial and she did a couple off-Broadway plays that were great.”

“Happy on the inside, happy on the outside. She’s always known how to have a good time and really live life to the fullest. I think it’s a state of being. It’s a state of what you think is what you are.”

“No matter how she looked, the boys loved her.”

“She didn’t bounce around from diet to diet. She just started eating better.”

“She spent five years working on shows that weren’t great, but she learned how to stay in there. It made her a veteran.”


Stephen Belber (director of Management) said:

“We went to Woody Harrelson early on before Jen was on [Management] and he passed. So we’re getting down to two or three weeks before the shoot, and she and I had been discussing various ideas and she said, ‘Let’s try Woody again,’ and she literally picked up the phone, and he was like playing poker with Willie Nelson in Hawaii. And he’s like, ‘Ah … I don’t know. I have some questions.’ And she says, ‘Look at the rewrite.’ So she emailed it to Woody, he read it, he liked (it) and he came in on the film.”

“I wanted Sue to be a more complex woman than you see in a lot of romantic comedies. And Jennifer was approaching this film in the same way I had, which is, yes, it’s funny, cute and weird, but it’s also coming from a genuine place. In talking to her the first time, I felt she got that about this movie, and she was willing to go there. And, obviously, her comic timing in general couldn’t be better and I knew that going in.”

“Jennifer was exactly the type I wanted for this character. She could convey weirdness and profoundness and still be funny.”

“The tabloids sent paparazzi to follow Jennifer. Of course, we had a closed set, and Jennifer’s got two very good bodyguards who keep these people at arm’s length.”

“There’s this scene in the movie where Jennifer and Woody get married and the tabloids were trying to sell this idea: ‘Did they have a secret wedding?’ I was like, ‘Come on!’”

“We had several financiers floating around, waiting to see who we cast, which combination of actors. When we were lucky enough to get Jennifer Aniston, it came together. I wasn’t originally going to cast the female lead first, but it happened that her agent sent it to her, she read it quickly and we met. It turned out well, allowing me more flexibility in the male lead, and the luxury of not getting a “classical” leading man, but rather one whom I felt was perfectly suited to the role.”

“We met and I was so struck by how well she got the character, how many good ideas she had about it, how willing she was to de-glamourize herself, to not look as beautiful as always. And to play someone with a lot of depth. I was like, ‘Yes, of course, please.’”

“I have great fear that I’ll never find two actors who are as nice and gentle with a first time director as [Steve Zahn and Jennifer]. They were so cool, and never was there any attitude, anything like, ‘Oh, I’ve been on this. You haven’t.’ They were so cool. And they were so giving and Jen had no reason to trust me, she didn’t know my work, she didn’t know anything about me. She put her career in my hands, it was a real testament to her risk-taking which she is all about, which is really quite impressive. And she was willing to do this kind of work with a schmuck like me.”

“Luckily, I summoned the courage to ask Steve and Jen to rehearse with me for a week prior to shooting. It felt like I was back in theater school. We went through the scenes chronologically, which you don’t have the luxury of doing during a shoot. It allowed them to trust me because they realized that I knew about character and I learned to trust them because I knew they could really defy audience expectations of them. They are so much more beyond the goofy sidekick and the sitcom star.”

“[We met] and it was a no-brainer. She was so ready to take on the less glamorous aspects of the role and work with me dramaturgically on it and really play it. And it gave us a certain financial flexiblity to cast someone like Steve who has not been the lead star in a lot of movies. She saw the heart that I was going for that is easy sometimes to miss and was probably a little underwritten at first and she helped me work on. She’s such a big star but it’s not always true that big stars, female stars particularly, get a great part.”

“From our first meeting on, she was tuned in to some of the underwritten feminist qualities and the things that I needed to sort of help bring out in the script. About a month before shooting, we did a reading in LA and the next day we had a day-long meeting that was really helpful and Jen was really insightful. Again, just making sure we chart her movements along the way, even if they’re not always on-screen. That her decisions make sense to her as an actor and to us in the audience.”

“And it’s also just Jen at her best, I think, when she’s both cute and funny, but also a huge amount of soulfulness.” [about the scene in the restaurant after yoga]

“Well, when her agent got a hold of it, and said she might be interested and described the plot to her, and said, ‘If you want to give it to her, it’s an offer.’ And I wasn’t sure I was ready yet, and she read it anyway, and expressed interest. And I went and met with her, and her ideas were so good, and so smart, and she was so committed to it, that I was like, ‘Yeah, if you want to help produce,’ meaning, what it really means is that she helped attract the financing, and also she has a certain amount of say on certain things, and thank God on that first meeting she and I had, we saw eye to eye.”

“[I encouraged the amateur soccer players not to go too easy on her. When she took a shot and tripped,] the cast, crew and especially the producers looked at me like I was the biggest idiot in the world. Fearing that I had allowed Jennifer Aniston to get severely injured, that I had incurred her eternal wrath and that I ruined the entire shoot, I went over to her with great fear and trembling. Fortunately, just as I got there, she popped up and said ‘Let’s do another one!’”

“Have Steve and Jen ever worked together? No, they knew each other and they almost worked together once. But they were buddies from Object of my Affection or one of those movies that Steve was around.”

“No, we didn’t [shoot chronologically.] But we rehearsed. Luckily, Jennifer and Steve both agreed to rehearse for almost a week beforehand. We did all that chronologically. And it was really – I’m a theater guy – a dream for me to have just the three of us in a room, going through these scenes. It was one thing I was familiar with. I had never drafted a movie, but I knew how to work with actors, a little bit. We just worked through the emotional arcs at the place, so when we shot out of order, it was good enough so everbody could figure it out. They were really good.”

“[It was] a little bit [difficult to direct with this many close-ups], yeah. Jennifer definitely has a close-up – two close-ups that take longer than Steve’s. She had – we had the DP on this movie – it was the same guy who had shot the Vince Vaughn movie with her, er, The Break-Up. So, he was a guy who knew how to shoot Jen and Jen was really happy with him, so… It cost us some time, sometimes, you know. But the very first meeting I had with Jennifer, she – I said, ‘I wouldn’t want you to wear a lot of make-up, I wouldn’t want you to look as glamorous as you normally do.’ And she was all for it. So, she didn’t have her normal make-up person, she didn’t have her normal hair person. We were doing a screening, a test screening in L.A. and the first person who raised their hands asked, ‘Where’s Chris McCrokey*?’ Like, people know who does her hair. ‘I’m sorry, he wasn’t on this film.’”

“Management was build to be a $2 million movie, without Jennifer Aniston. And when Jennifer came along, the budget grew and the expectations grew.”

“You get an R rating if you say, ‘F*ck’ twice. Or more than twice. And we only have like four. The poster. We’re dealing with the poster right now and we have a poster in which Jen and Steve were sitting there with their backs turned [towards each other] and he’s got his hand on her butt and they won’t let us do it. And I’m like – for that kind of movie and in a poster, and I’m shocked when I see the other, the types of violence, the types of sexuality – his hand on her butt and our poster is literally going to have his hand near, approaching her butt. And it’s gonna be called ‘the almost touching comedy.’”

“How did we get Jennifer to be in the film? The script was sent out to – it sort of got a producer and he sent it out to agents and agents started reading it. And it kind of got passed around in its original form, very quirky and weird. And Jennifer’s agent said to me – I was looking, I always thought that the male part was bigger, I was looking for a guy first to cast – and the guy turns to me, Jennifer’s agent and we were talking about different names and he’s like, ‘I’d like to give it to Jen. I already described it to her. But you have to offer it to her.’ And to tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure that was the right choice and I wanted to do the guy first, so I held off. And I was going back to Los Angeles a couple of weeks later and he said, ‘Well, you know what? I gave it to Jen. She loved it, she wants to meet with you. But if you meet with her, you have to give her the part, if she wants it.’ Which is a typical – it has nothing to do with Jen, it’s an agent move. So I was a little bit like, ‘Why did you give it to her? I can’t down a meeting with Jennifer now.’ So I nervously went out there and was like, ‘Well, if we both hate each other, can we get out?’ He was like, ‘Yeah.’ So I went out there and it was a really lovely meeting. You know, she has done indie movies before, she wanted to do one where – as I said – she didn’t look as glamorous. We sort of hit it off right [away]. It was great and it allowed us to cast Steve Zahn. Steve was a guy I had my eye on. Having Jen allowed us to be a little more flexible, casting the guy.”

“Yes, I had [seen Jennifer in The Good Girl.] And that gave me great hope. In fact, the night I was going to Los Angeles to meet her, I re-rented that movie, I rented The Break-Up again and in The Break-Up she has some really beautiful scenes again. It’s, you know, she really shows some vulnerability. I sort of knew she had it in her and it was a matter whether she wanted to go there again. She’s really quiet and obviously a very thoughtful and sensitive person and she has a career that can do many things, so I was glad she’s wanted to go for it with this film.”

“Having Jen there, obviously, was good to do some financing and her generosity, sort of from day one, in terms of what she wanted to bring to the script and the different part of herself she wanted to play was very hopeful. And I find it to be – in this movie – some of her best work ever. I think – I really loved her in this. The sort of openness she had in this movie was very lovely for me to watch.”

“Joining a small, independently-financed movie is something that certainly someone of her stature doesn’t have to do. But the fact that she wants to exercise that muscle – she has this great dramatic thing going on underneath the comedy. And when she can flock a line, like I think in this movie she does really well, it’s a thrill to watch. And she didn’t have to do it, but it’s pretty cool she does.”

“Constantly. You have preconceptions as to how a certain scene should play. She comes in, does it that way and then she has the range to try it a different way. And it’s better. That kind of stuff is priceless for a director.”

“She lives with her heart on her sleeves, she lives fully and she’s not afraid to hide it. She doesn’t flaunt [her status] in any sense. People follow her life, and she’s not a jerk. She could be a mean, bitter person as a result of all the press she gets – or the hounding — she gets, and she just never, ever shows a bitterness at all. That alone is huge, I think.”

“She has great strength, and I never heard her complain. Not once. There was never a sign of, ‘Oh, poor Jen.’ She has a positive outlook on things. She is the most upbeat, thoughtful sincere person.”


Leslie Bennetts (journalist *) said:

“I think Jennifer has made a determined effort not to let fame, fortune, and marriage to Brad Pitt turn her into a different kind of person. She is very conscious of her influence, particularly on young women, and wants to use it constructively.”

*She has interviewed Jen several times for Vanity Fair.


Albert Berger (producer of The Switch) said:

“It’s been a really exciting place to film and of course filming with Jennifer Aniston is a trip, as well, because everywhere she goes, everywhere she is, there is a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of fans. So that brings a sort of energy to the experience.”

“Jennifer, who’s a real pro, was able to wear those two hats [acting and executive-producing) in a very positive way for the film. She's graceful, generous and is able to exert her influence on behalf of the production in subtle but good ways. Kristin Hahn, Jen's partner, is a very capable producer and it has been a real pleasure making the movie with them."

Elizabeth Berkeley said:

"She's a total pro."


Kevin Biegel (co-creator of Cougar Town) said:

"Jennifer was shooting scenes outside my office window as me and a few writers worked. Never have more nerds done less."

"J. Aniston gave me the nickname "Kegs". I approve!"


Jessica Biel said:

"I couldn't survive without my girlfriends. It's what I love about Drew Barrymore or Jennifer Aniston. I've watched them in films and I think, I love her. I would really want to be her friend. I'd love it if people could think that about me. I can't quite put my finger on [the quality they have], but I guess it’s not taking yourself so seriously.”

“I understand being sexy, men love you, that’s great. But what’s really important is that women want to hang out with you. That’s what I love about Jennifer Aniston – I watch her films and I think I love her. I really want to be her friend! I want to play those roles so women will think that about me too. It’s about not taking yourself too seriously.”


Rachel Bilson said:

“I’m a huge fan of both Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd and they come together again in the movie Wanderlust [and that's why I'm looking forward to this film].”


Kimm Birkicht (florist) said:

“She’s been very loyal to me, and I’m very honored to have her as a client. She’s very sweet and sends lots of flowers to her friends.”


Phillip Bloch (her stylist) said:

“She’s like, ‘No, that’s fine, I’ll just put a G-string on.’” – on when he offered her matching underwear for a sheer dress

“It’s not like she has the biggest breasts, but she has beautiful breasts. She’s not the most beautiful, but she’s really pretty. She’s not the most of anything, but all of it just works.”

“She’s always sexy, even in overalls and a tank top and she’s also fashion fearless.”


Lorenzo di Bonaventura [producer of Derailed] said:

“Really, Jennifer was one of the very first people that popped into all our minds when Mikael and I first started talking about casting. Jennifer was the one. I don’t know if there is a Latina actress who is big enough in terms of marquee value that also had the same sort of surprise, so we never really went down that road.”

“She’s a smooth-working instrument.”


Debbie Bosse [mother of Ellie Claire Bosse, Justine's child in The Good Girl] said:

“She was great with Ellie. She would keep her after the cameras stopped rolling, playing with her. It’s obvious she loves children.”


Michael Bostick (producer of Bruce Almighty) said:

“Jennifer has been in America’s living rooms for nine years as Rachel on Friends, and I think that people will be thrilled to see her on the big screen with Jim. Jennifer’s comic timing is impeccable, and she also brings an emotional weight to her characters.”


Jason Botterill (hockey player) said:

“It would have to be Jennifer Aniston, for her obvious good looks.” – when asked which actress should play his love interest in a movie


Brian Bouma said:

“I had a huge crush on her. It was impossible not to! After all, she’s certainly not hard to look at, and when you combine that with her smarts, her intelligence and her sweet nature… I just let my guard down and was open to letting her in.”

“She is a smart, intelligent woman who knows what she’s doing.”

“I stuffed my face with her sweet conversation, her beauty, the attention she showed me. I didn’t spend time with Jen because she was famous or successful. It was because of the conversation, the very first time we spoke. She’s genuine, sincere and charismatic.”

“Of course Jen is capable of happiness. I want her to be happy, and I think she is. She’s a lovely, smart woman and a fabulous person!”

“Not true, not true whatsoever. Jen is not the person people think she is. All that stuff about her being lonely is just ridiculous.”

 


Katrina Bowden said:

“It was really cool to meet Jennifer Aniston [when she was on 30 Rock]. She was so down-to-earth and normal, and beautiful in real life.”


Julie Bowen said:

“You think she’s an accessible sort of beautiful, but you really can’t get that beautiful on your own. You’d have to drink your way there.”

“In the makeup trailer, I was pulled into her orbit. I’ve met her a few times before, she’s an incredibly nice person. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad word said about her, and it’s all true.”

“She’s one of our own. She’s incredibly beautiful in the way that you think you could be if you got drunk enough and looked in the mirror just at the right angle.”

“I think until [Bill O'Reilly] has some experience as a single mother, he can just zip it and [Jennifer] can do whatever she damn well pleases.”


Kevin S. Bright said:

“Jennifer is just incredible in this scene [where Rachel gives birth to Emma] and totally just – I’m very proud of this scene because I think as far as birth scenes go on sitcoms, they tend to be more caricaturish and not feeling real. I feel like this one, Jennifer and David [Schwimmer] just made you feel the same way you probably felt when you had a child, when you were in that delivery room. But with less laughs.”

“We gradually made Jennifer more disheveled as the show went on [in The One Where Rachel Has A Baby]. It started out [when] she had those little pigtails and as the show progressed we started to take the makeup off, we started to make a little more sweaty and we took the hair – oh, no, the hair is still [in pigtails]. Forget that. We made her more disheveled. Period.”

“[In The One With Joey's New Brain], you can see the look on Jennifer’s face. She’s covering her mouth. That’s the trick with the Friends. When they’re really gonna break character and crack up on camera, they always put their hands in front of their mouths, hoping they can – it’s like they’re holding in a sneeze. But it didn’t work and all of them cracked up. We did another take, everybody cracked up again. But obviously we got to finish it.”

“If you’re somebody’s fan, you don’t care that [Susan Sarandon's character]‘s standing there in a shirt, she’s obviously just slept over at the guy’s and you’d think they’d be a little embarrassed and just leave but no, the important thing is, ‘I’ve got to meet her.’ Ask the cast of Friends what’s happened to them in bathrooms sometimes. They’ll tell ya.”

“It was very funny when we did this scene [with Phoebe and Rachel fighting over a guy's cell phone in The One With Joey's New Brain]. Jennifer had her real cell phone that she was using in the scene because she needed it with her because of some things that were going on with her life and she forgot to turn it off and we did the scene and the phone was actually ringing and it was for her. It was, of course, not the gentleman who left his phone in the coffee shop.”

“Down the road, Rachel and Joey do get together but the truth of that lies in season 11 and we just completed season 10 – if that really happens or not. [The One That Could Have Been] didn’t plant any seeds for that necessarily but if anything, when the idea [of Rachel and Joey] did come up, what we did know was that Matt [LeBlanc] and Jennifer were great together. That the audience enjoyed seeing them together and would be a great storyline for this show. Maybe this was subliminally the seeds for this for us.”

“I think that David and Jennifer really loved performing this episode [The One With The Morning After] because it had so many levels on it that was more than what you get in the average sitcom. It was really about identifying with these two characters ’cause you’re rooting for them. And why you wanted them to be together, I think.”

“The thing about Jennifer being the one to be Rachel was that she wasn’t just funny and beautiful. There was something special about her. There was something fresh. She kind of embodied every male’s high school dream of the unattainable prom date. So there was a connection to her.”

“Going back to the beginning, Jennifer and Matthew [Perry] had already done pilots that season and actually, the other shows had first dibs on them. So when we taped the pilot with Jennifer and Matthew, we were taking a calculated risk that we might not have them for the series. If the other two shows got picked up, we would lose them. Fortunately for us, those two shows failed.”

“We had a long drought before finding our Rachel, and then Jennifer read for us and just knocked Rachel out of the ballpark.”

“Brad [Pitt] is really sweet. He comes to pick up Jennifer every Friday night. He kind of sneaks in the back door and he hangs out in her dressing room because he doesn’t want to steal the thunder of the show.”

“She was the part. She was funny. She was pretty. It all came through one big stroke.”


Bill Britten (former drama tutor) said:

“We used to audition about 4.000 kids a year. And had openings for about 85 to 90. So, to get in, you had to be good. Didn’t have to be a professional, but had to show the instinct.”

“Jennifer at school, I remember, at the old school and the new school. Exuberant, lots of energy. I remember one of our spring drama festivals, I was directing. And she was on the stage crew and when the show was over, the last performance, I remember all the girls and boys, they were jumping around. They were so happy the show was over. She had so much energy. She was 15, I think. So much energy. And funny. And leading everybody and singing and dancing.”

“Some people just have a bone structure or personality that you put them on camera and the camera loves them. They don’t have to say a word. They just love them. She got on camera, you don’t have to look at anybody else. And she was funny. Had a wonderful sense of comedy. A fine timing. Comedy is, someone said, who was it? – I forgot who said it but – comedy is like music: You have to know the notes and the timing. The rhythm and the timing. When she got on camera, she brought something else to it. There was some extra thing to it. It was behind the eyes. That’s it. You can look at somebody on camera, on television or movies and the really good ones – doesn’t mean the stars but the good actors. There’s something behind the eyes, you can see something, you can see the brain working. And she had it, had it as a young girl. She was wonderful.”

 

Adam Brody said:
“Jen’s hot, I had such a crush on her through Friends and y’know she is single. Demi Moore’s bringing the toyboy back.”


Ed Burns (director of She’s The One) said:

“Everyone who’s seen the film so far has been blown away by her performance. It’s nothing like her character on Friends. The girl can act!”


James Burrows said:

“I told [the cast of Friends] they had a special show and this was their last shot at anonymity. They wanted to gamble, and I was the only one with money. They wrote me checks. Schwimmer gave me a check for $200, and Jen did. I should have saved them.”

“No, [I wasn't surprised "The Rachel" became a trend.] Look what she looks like. A really beautiful girl who’s funny. You know, she can – it might have looked bad on some other person but it wasn’t gonna look bad on Jennifer.”


Billy Bush said:

“She does [smell wonderful]. I’ve hugged her on a few occasions. I’ve lingered an extra half second.”

“I’ve been to her birthday party but I’d say I’m friendly to her, not friends. I mean, I don’t, obviously, call her and say, ‘How are you?’ Laying low, girl. Keep laying low. I’m not seeing paparazzi shots of her at night. When she’s going at night. However she’s doing it, she’s good. She’s good. She’s – I don’t understand how you can, with your face and your private life all the time, having a nice relationship. Justin [Theroux] seems like a stud to me. I think he’s a stud. I think she’ll make a great mom. She’s so funny, funny… I think she’ll be the best – she’ll make up bedtime stories that are hysterical. She’s really self-effacing, fun, kind of humble person.”


Gerard Butler said:

“It would be too much to say that [I] didn’t think of having sex with her when she’s around in her sexy little dress. But she’s my bud and – I was gonna say. You’re asking for trouble to do that in the middle of the film with your co-star in case it goes south because you’re looking at each other for 12-14 hours a day for the next two months, ‘Oh, I f%&king hate you.’”

“Listen, you’re working together, so you’re always gonna know [if you slept together]. It’s not like we haven’t discussed it. We’re just friends. I gotta tell ya, we became very close. I had a great time working with her.”

“No, no, [I'm not in love with Jen]. Although I love her… I genuinely do.”

“I gave her tips [on the action scenes] but it was more funny to watch. One, it was reassuring her that we were safe even though I didn’t think we were. There’s a lot of action where you go, ‘Anything can happen right now.’ But she’d never really done it before, and at first so she was nervous, especially the car chace, when we were shooting blanks at each other which can be dangerous. But after the first time, she was loving it. It was great to watch!”

“I knew her from before, not very well but we – it was a couple of other movies we’d talked about and I already thought, ‘What a great girl.’ We had a blast while we were talking and the second we got together for this, I thought, ‘We are going to make a good movie.’ Especially after the first couple of scenes. Between the script and Andy Tennant, the director and the two of us, we were just going from one funny situation to another. She’s a comedy genius.”

“Yeah, nightmare. No, it was a lot, a lot a lot of fun. I mean, but then I knew that when I read the script, so… it is – it’s a whole bunch of crazy action. Two characters that, you know, are just going at each other and a lot of funny, sharp dialogue and of course working with Jennifer Aniston, I couldn’t ask for more.”

“It was great fun throwing her in the trunk [of the car], I gotta say. Picking up Jen Aniston… yeah.”

“Jen would catch me [sneaking cup cakes into my diet] sometimes. She’s a big enabler. She, I think, in time reaized, you know, I really have to stop eating cake. And then she stopped sending me – ’cause she would send me cupcakes, as well. See, she never said that.”

“Well, it’s a lot harder to find dirt on Jen than it is on me. I don’t think you have to think very hard to find dirt on me. But I gotta say, she likes to smoke at night. And every now and again – you know, she’s a good girl, she really is a good girl but she likes to let it rip, you know? On the weekends, our director would have fun, kind of barbeques and she would have a few [drinks] and get crazy and be on that dance floor and be singing and – I was a little bit like, ‘Jen Aniston?’ She was like, ‘Yeah! Woohoo!’ And I was like, ‘Woah, this is a new side to Jen.’”

“The new [rumor] is Jennifer Aniston. I start filming with her in two weeks. I think it’s because she’s single and I’m single. The sum total of our conversation was about four minutes at the Toronto Film Festival. The next day, the story is: Gerry Butler and Jennifer Aniston get cozy at the Toronto Film Festival. Cozy? We were standing up and surrounded by forty people.”

“She is one classy lady. Everyday I go to work with her I’m always surprised about how cool, easy and down to earth and real she is. I’m in New York right now filming and I’m in heaven. I can’t always say that about movies, but to be filming this romantic comedy with Jennifer and a story that made my side split when I read it – I’m lucky. I’m happy as a pig in sh!t, as they say.”

“Yeah, we’re very much in love. Especially her. We’re actually gonna tie the knot next Tuesday or Wednesday. One of those days. And then on Saturday, I may marry Cameron Diaz. Who else? Joan Rivers will be the next one… [...] It’s not true [that we're dating,] of course. Just so you know.”

“The first few times [romance rumors were made up about me,] I actually got really upset by it because you think, ‘somebody made that up,’ and it’s a little bit ridiculous. But then you think, ‘Oh, you know what…it’s just silly.’ Then there are days it just frustrates you. One day, we had dinner when we first discussed the movie, and that day she had been linked to three different people! I was already one of them.”

“Listen, there’s nobody that’s been more subject to these rumors than her, so I think she’s just learned to…most of the time, you can blow it off.”

“She’s like my best buddy. She’s so down-to-earth, so easy going. She’s incredibly self-deprecating and again, just alive! I’m having fun doing this! I’m lucky right now! Little boy from Scotland did good!”

“She’s really down to earth and very sharp and witty, but easy going.”

“We’re like buddy buddy. She has a lot of sexy things about her.”

“We have to spend, obviously when you’re working with an actor, you have to spend a lot of time with them. But you still have an opportunity to sit in a different chair, between shots. When we’re in a car together. We spend a lot of time being stuck in this car together – this is like a road movie. We spend a lot of this movie stuck in this car together. So, we are forced to partake. But I mean, it’s true, I’m constantly surprised by how easy-going and fun and how much we joke together and how there’s no ego there whatsoever and how – you know, she’s very self-deprecating. You see both the fighter in her and at the same time the vulnerable side to her. And you get it – I don’t even mean that she can be an a$$. You really get to know her as – you see into her as a person – she lets you see it.”

“I don’t get it as much as Jennifer. But I get it, I’ve had it with a lot of different people. It’s in fact, about a year ago, we had dinner and Andrew [Tennant], the director of [upcoming film The Bounty], and of course the next day it was just that Jennifer and I were having a cozy dinner together. And that night we were talking about it. Because that day alone, in the press I had been with two different women and she was with three different guys. We were just saying it was funny, but that’s our lives and people just make up this sh!t. And you work really hard to do all this. It has nothing to do with what you do.”

“The moment I saw one article on this because my driver was like, ‘So, did you see the paper?’ I’m like, ‘Oh, stop showing it to me.’ – Since then, I’ve only heard that it’s in the paper a lot. I haven’t really seen it.”

“No, [I am not dating Jennifer] and if I was I would say I was. I’m not embarrassed by her. Maybe she’s embarrassed by me though. It’s just if you are not married in Hollywood and you are working with someone else who is single you are having a thing with them.”

“I haven’t [kissed her] yet. I am excited. I have been lucky. She is the best. That girl is so down to earth, easy going and fun. I am having a great time on this movie. It is the funniest script, craziest scenarios and she is up for anything.”

“Maybe I am snogging her in real life, I’m just not going out with her. No, I’m only joking!”

“I married Jennifer Aniston yesterday. She looked beautiful. It was quite romantic. We were joking about it: ‘We might as well make this real. Keep everybody happy.’ [Three minutes before the shoot, I tried to get Jennifer's hairstylist registered on the Internet as an officiant. I slipped a ring on her finger and] she’s like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ [And then, as the camera snapped, my cellphone rang. It was my mother. I said] ‘I have to call you back. I’m getting married,’ She goes, ‘What?’ – ‘I’m marrying Jennifer Aniston!’ and she’s like: ‘Oh, good. Well, I’m glad you made the right choice.’”

“[Jen and I] are just totally good friends.”

“I don’t even know what’s going on with these tales. My friends call me and say, ‘You’re on TV for dating someone and in the papers.’ I never see the TV. I never read the articles. The headlines are ridiculous. And now I have the paparazzi following me 24-7. Savvy fans will notice I’ve essentially worn the same outfit in all my photos with Jen. They’re photos taken while we have been filming the movie. The paparazzi has come back again and again to take the same photo of us in the car.”

“In my private life, the paparazzi love to take photos of me with food falling out of my mouth. Or even better, on the set. Once I hugged Jennifer and said, ‘Great scene.’ It made national news.”

“That’s how I live my life. Conan asked me about Aniston, who is my co-star in the movie I’m making now, and I just said, ‘Yeah, we’re getting married. What the hell.’ Tell a joke, that’s my technique. But, I’m careful to also say that I’m marrying Cameron Diaz and maybe Joan Rivers. I like to tell everyone I’m going to be a busy guy. I learned as a kid how to stay out of trouble: make it funny.”

“I love her to death. She’s the coolest and she’s become a great friend, but there’s nothing going on. And if there was, I’d be happy to say it!”

“Jennifer is like one of the guys. She’s so cool, she’s so grounded, really down-to-earth. And very sharp and witty. Just easy-going. We’re like buddy-buddies. She has a lot of sexy things about her.”

“She has the best sense of humor. [When I was asked if we were dating and I went] ‘No, we’re not. We’re just f***ing!’ [during the press junket for another movie of mine, then] she totally gets it. She just did a press junket for her movie and she said she was asked the same question the whole time and she was like, ‘Well I’m going to keep you guys guessing.’ She has fun with it too.”

“Do you think if I was dating Jennifer Aniston, I’d be keeping it quiet? I’d be parading her up and down Sauchiehall Street.”

“I wish they would stop asking me about dating Jennifer Aniston. Don’t get me wrong, she is one of my most favorite people on this planet… she’s so cool. But there’s nothing there. And I don’t like how it gets dragged out in the media all the time.”

“[Did Jen have a hard time keeping her hands off of me?] Not really, I let her. So it was quite easy for her.”

“Of course, to work with Andy Tenant, our director, and Jen. Most of all Jen. Her and I have been talking about different projects for a while but [The Bounty Hunter] was the one where we both went, ‘This is the one.’”

“I think that every moment of doing this movie with her has been a joy. You know, it just felt right. I’ve always known our chemistry was great together. You know, we do these scenes, we go in, have a blast and just work off each other.”

“We’re a team, even when we’re not a team in the movie. You know, even when we’re pitting against each other, it’s just been – the sparks have been flying. She’s – nobody – I can’t think of anybody who could have done this role even ten percent of what she’s been able to bring to Nicole.”

“Over Christmas, she had a tree-trimming party that I went to. Yeah, I trimmed her bush. S**t. Please don’t put that in.”

“You can put words to all of that, but then there’s just a magic. Our chemistry was great together.”

“Jen brings fire, intelligence, sexiness, steadiness, and power – everything Nicole needs as an ace reporter.”

“If there’s a car, she gets handcuffed to the door. In the hotel, she gets handcuffed to the bed. She has to taser me to escape… she manages to get the cuffs on me at one point. I chase her down, I smash her pedicab to catch her. There was a time where she had to walk around with the inside of a car door attached to her wrist, dragging it on the ground.”

“We have a blast together and she appreciates that Celtic manner. There’s nothing diva-ish about her, she’s very down to earth, very sure of herself and who she is, and I’m like a little kid, who doesn’t take myself too seriously. We had a fun script and a great director, so we just had to dive in and it was a blast.”

“The best thing about this movie is that the two of us got to be together. I literally became a member of her family while shooting this film. I even went to Mexico to see her on her birthday during a day off.

“It was not a chemistry we had to work at.”

“She never complained once – unlike me. I’m like a big whining baby.”

“That day [of the W Magazine photoshoot] I was like ‘oh my God’. She was so sexy in that lingerie and it was a really raunchy shoot. [But] it’s crazy that you do that and people are like ‘oh there’s something going on because look that’s a sexy photo’.”

“It’s funny because it’s been over a year now that people go ‘is there something going on?’ and if there is something going on I’d be very happy to say ‘ah there’s something going on’.”

“We have a great chemistry off screen as well, it’s just a great chemistry. We’re great friends. Unfortunately if you are single and you have even a friendship then people like to see more into it, but we’re just friends.”

“Listen, she had to do weeks and weeks of auditioning for that role to find someone better looking than me. It wasn’t easy!” – in respone to Jennifer’s “I had someone off camera that was staggeringly gorgeous, so I could believe what I was saying.”

“Best time I had working with an actress in a movie. We got along great.”

“It was a lot of running in this [movie.] But then again, to be honest, I didn’t have it anywhere near as bad as she did. She’s running around in, what do you call it? Manolo Blahniks. And that tight skirt. It was great. Listen, all the guys on set were very happy with that situation. I was one of the guys on set, so… I’m the first to admit. But yeah, and the handcuffs and she’s dragging car doors around and constantly I’m handcuffing her to the car, to the bed. I’m pretty much handcuffing her everywhere. What a life! Tight skirt, high heels, handcuffing her all over the place. I’m getting hot.”

“Anybody who would hang out with Jen would just fall in love with her. And I mean in the nicest way. I mean, yeah, she’s sexy but she’s a really cool girl. So down-to-earth and you know, great people around her that work with her that I think really says a lot about a person. No attitude, no diva-ish behaviour whatsoever.”

“In fact, I was learning a lot from her. For instance, even during those stunts – I’ve done a lot of stunts and I get hurt a lot but when I get hurt, I go, ‘I got hurt! Look!’ There was one time when there was blood pouring down her hand and it was after the car crash and we’re smashing through the car. And there are cuts and bruises from – ’cause handcuffs, real handcuffs are exceptionally uncomfortable. Especially when you’re dragging a car door around. Never was she like, ‘This hurts.’ Or ‘Oh, look. My hand’s bleeding.’ Well, in fact, that’s what she said, it was like, ‘Oh, look. My hand’s bleeding.’”

“She’s vivacious. I mean, she’s just so alive inside, and that really shows through. And Jen actually does have the best legs in Hollywood!”

“It will never be over. If Jen remains my friend, which I hope she will, anytime we would ever hang out in any way will be described as us dating again.”

“She has a big thing with Mexico and Mexican food. And I had a great night of Mexican food and a whole bunch of people… over at her house, she had a big to-do, and she had a lot of friends over and it was delicious. She makes a good cupcake. And I’m good at eating them.”

“I don’t think I have to tell you what my friends said when I was working with Jen Aniston. People love her; she’s sexy. She’s beautiful. My friends hate me that I get to work with her, and they don’t.”

“For me, Jen – it’s like she’s a Scots girl. There’s no pretend, she’s down-to-earth. She’s very easy-going. And I loved that, working with another actor who doesn’t – has no airs and graces. She’s the least diva-ish actress I’ve ever worked with.”

“She’s an incredible girl. And easy-going and allows me to be a big child, which I am in spades. And we just saw a lot of things the same way.”

“We knew we were working great together. I loved her people, her private people. It was just all fantastic.”

“The wedding day prank. I think she was getting pretty upset because she was all dressed up in her beautiful wedding dress and I was late. You know, this is just us being called to set to take some photographs. But I did turn up a little late but in style with my beautiful Delta ’88 oldsmobile. Turning the horn in my finery. But in the middle of our wedding, when we were taking the photographs, my phone rang and it was my mum. Just coincidently. And I took the phone and said, ‘Hey mum, I’m a little busy right now. I’m marrying Jennifer Aniston.’ Jen took the phone and had a conversation with my mum and introduced herself as my mum’s daughter-in-law. It was a beautiful wedding. My mum was so excited. She’s desperate to have me get married.”

“[My mother] actually met her last night [at the New York premiere] for the first time. But they talked on the phone a couple of times and I got to tell you, [they] were both very excited to meet each other. It was lovely. So they met last night and they – now they have plans to go golfing together and for her to stay in Scotland and my mum to take her around. I think they very much fell in love.”

“From the first time I met Jen, we had great chemistry. Easy, fun. She just knows people like me. She gets me.”

“She’s so cool and so nice but that doesn’t always lead to good chemistry, you know? But we just played so brilliantly off each other.”

“[On a scale of 1 to 10, our chemistry is] ten.”

[The pictures published in W Magazine] are all very sexy. There were all these rumors about me and Jen, I was like, ‘Come on!’ But I gotta say, that day, I was like, ‘I wish these rumors were true.’ I mean, she was so sexy in that outfit.”

“We met before the movie started. Talked on the phone and we met a couple of times. One of the main reasons I wanted to do the movie was to work with Jen. What was cool was the difference between meeting somebody and getting on well and then when you start doing a movie with them, being thrown into those situations, you experience a very different side to their personality. But she was incredibly cool from the start.”

“[I was surprised by] the fact that she liked to walk around naked on set. In between scenes. I thought it was a little weird but it was cool. I didn’t mind it. It surprised me. Alright, what surprised me was that she didn’t like to walk around naked on set.”

“She has like the most insane body, so suddenly seeing her in lingerie and stockings and these silks was – every guy on set was a little bit like, ‘Oh my God.’”

“We didn’t get enough of [the kissing.] I didn’t get to kiss her enough. But we made up for it in plenty of other ways.”

“You either just have chemistry or you don’t. I’m like a fun-loving, energetic guy, and she’s boisterous. She’s got a lovely personality, and there’s this action-packed, fun script. We’re always going to, I think, have a good chemistry.”

“A couple of [my friends] came to visit [me on the set of The Bounty Hunter] and they’re still talking about it, you know? I called my brother at home once and put Jen on the phone with him and literally, he called me the next week and he’s like, ‘I still can’t believe I was talking to Jen Aniston.’ And she’s now best friends with my mum. They’ve talked a few times. My mum, actually in the movie when we’re getting married and we had to take a photograph and we got all dressed up – my mum called in the middle of it and I’m like, ‘Do you mind? I’m a little busy. I’m marrying Jennifer Aniston right now.’ And she’s like, ‘Oh, okay. Don’t wanna interrupt. Have a good wedding.’”

“She has the perfect body.”

“Of course, if you were divorcing Jen, you’d be shattered.”

“She’s kind of amazing and sexy.”

“Jen and I got on like a house on fire.”

“We have a lot of fun together. I’m not sure what the photo is, but I think it’s funny to spend almost a year and a half saying there’s nothing going on. People don’t realize that, if there was something going on, I’m sure both of us would be very happy to proclaim, ‘Yeah, there’s something going on.’ But, there’s not, so we say, ‘No.’ People continue to speculate, but you know what? It’s fun—and it has become a joke. We laugh about it.”

“I had a great time working with Katie [Katherine Heigl]. Katie is the consummate professional. She’s hilarious, but I’d say that my time with Jen was really special. She and I clicked immediately. We have a very similar sense of humor. We’re both very down to earth—no pretense. One thing I love about Jen is that she appreciates everybody around her!”

“I was kind of adopted by her family. She has people who work with her all the time. That speaks volumes about Jen, because she surrounds herself with fun, spiritual and wise people who don’t take themselves too seriously. I spent more time hanging out with them. Often, even when I’m working hard on movies, I like to escape to my own trailer. I like my private time. But, this was a very social movie. I couldn’t speak highly enough about her.”

“She’s stunningly beautiful and she’s very cool and there are moments where I sit back and go, ‘Yeah, I’m in the right business. I’m very lucky to be doing this.’ Because you know what? She’s beautiful and she’s sexy but she’s so cool. And sometimes when you have somebody like that, they’re not always the easiest to work with. She is the opposite of that, so I was very lucky – I was quite happy to stand in for every other man on the planet [who would have wanted to be Jennifer's co-star.]”

“We’re fast friends. We immediately hit it off. She’s cool, she’s down-to-earth. She has no attitude. She’s really appreciative about all the people around her and her crew. That’s – I love to see that in a person. She has great, great friends, fascinating friends from every facet of life. I wish everybody had a chance to spend a little bit of time with her because she’s just very charming and smart and sharp.”

“What Nicole needed was a fire, an intelligence and sexiness. And Jen has all those things and then everything that goes in between – you could put words to all of that but then there’s just the magic. And Nicole Hurley, her character, has to have a magic and she brings that so brilliantly. I mean, I think that every moment of doing this movie with her has been a joy.”


Dan Byrd (co-star on Cougar Town) said:

“I think Jen’s character is sort of fun and different for her, something, if it is successful, could hopefully recur in some type of capacity. She obviously has quite a schedule, but her and Courteney are sisters, you know. She has a bit of an edge in this [role]. We were very lucky and happy to have her.”


P.J. Byrne (co-star in Horrible Bosses) said:

“I knew I was going [to] be working with Jennifer Aniston and we’d have a precarious scene together. We were trying to figure out where to put the cameras and how to light my underwear. The first time I met her, I had my pants down. That wasn’t my dream meeting of her.”

“She looks beautiful. You see the sweetheart in her left at home [in this movie].”

“I think that’s how you want to meet people—with your pants off. It’s a safer, fairer and more social way to meet people. It was emotional. It was real. I don’t think I performed as well as I could have… but it was intimate. It was insane, but she was so cool and charming and lovely. Just a sweetheart.”
