Jennifer Aniston is a dear old lady Friend for many, but it is “just getting started” in many ways.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress talks about her career, tabloids, social media, those who hate her stance on vaccines and “discordance” Friends meeting. She also meets in the photography department, posing in a hard-to-remove bikini top and pants.
“Oh yeah, I’m just getting started,” the Morning program Star, 52, said what’s to come. “Recently I started to say, ‘Oh, I already have this.’ I think I needed to overcome those obstacles of doubt and recognize who I am, where I am and how long I have been here.”
Aniston has been here long enough to see her entire life dissected for public consumption.
“I used to take it all very personally – the pregnancy rumors and the assumption of ‘Oh, she chose the career over the boys,'” she said. “It’s like, ‘You have no idea what’s wrong with me personally, medically, why can’t I … can I have kids?’ They don’t know anything, and it was really painful and unpleasant. “
Why she has been a target in front of others is always a mystery.

“I also grew up watching someone sit comfortably in a victim state, and I didn’t like how it looked,” Aniston said. “I knew this person was giving me an example of what I would never want to be, and never will be. I think it’s toxic and erodes your insides and your soul. And listen, is it a splinter? A nuisance to have to go through publicly. For some dark shit in front of the world? Yes, it is inconvenient, but everything is relative. So, I had to make a decision: either I would give up on chocolates and live under my covers or am I going to go out and find a creative outlet and prosper, and that’s what I did. It turned out to be with a movie called The breaking.”
While things are different today when it comes to celebrity coverage, it’s not necessarily better.
“What the tabloid press and the media did to people’s personal lives back then, ordinary people are doing now,” he said. “I haven’t seen a tabloid in so long though. Am I still going to have twins? Am I going to be the miracle mother at 52? (Laughs.) Now you have social networks. It’s almost as if the media handed the sword to any Joe Schmo sitting behind a computer screen to be a troll or whatever they call him and harass people in the comment sections. So, in a way, it’s like they change hands. And I don’t know why there is such a cruel streak in society. I often wonder what they get excited about. “

But he’s seeing a lot of change around him, like Hollywood.
“I don’t know what the industry is anymore,” he said. “It’s not the same industry that it used to be anymore. It’s not as glamorous anymore. Little by little it’s coming back about TikTok and Instagram followers. It’s like, are we hiring now based on followers, not talent? Lose. contact. I’m not good at saying, ‘I’m going to stay relevant and join TikTok.’
Aniston doesn’t have to remain relevant because she just is. Fans tune in to her either The Morning Show, channeling Blair Warner into Living in front of a studio audience: the facts of life wave Friends meeting earlier this year.
“Traveling back in time is difficult,” he said of the long-awaited meeting.
“I think we were so naive going into it, thinking, ‘How much fun is this going to be? They’re putting the sets back together, exactly the way they were.’ Then you get there and it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, I hadn’t thought about what was going on the last time I was here.’ And it took me by surprise because it was like, ‘Hello, past, do you remember me? Remember how that sucked? You thought that everything was in front of you and that life was going to be simply beautiful and then you went through perhaps the most difficult moment. In your life? “Referring to the show that ended in May 2004, when newlyweds Aniston and Pitt publicly revealed their plans to start a family. Pitt then played Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Jolie, leading to the divorce from Aniston and Pitt.
“It was all very jarring,” he said about him. Friends reunion “, and of course you have cameras everywhere and I’m already a bit emotionally accessible, I guess you could say, so I had to go out at certain points. I don’t know how they avoided it.”

They, and special guests, either her ex-husband Justin Theroux or Morning program co-star Billy Crudup – come see “Sunday Fundays” at Aniston’s house. Your kids are entertained at the elegant Bel Air property, and dinner and drinks are served.
Bateman said in the article that they call the hostess with the mostess Aniston “Carol,” explaining the nickname: “Carol is like a den mother – or if you can imagine a woman who would be the enthusiastic leader of a bowling team and all. that goes with that. Someone who’s almost stuck in the 1940s in the way he organizes things because he just wants to make sure everyone is comfortable and having fun. “
The next thing for the star will be the shoot. Murder Mystery 2 with Adam Sandler. After the intensity of doing drama The Morning Show while she’s also in a pandemic, she’s expecting “fart jokes” and other laughs. She called her career “nothing but blessed.” His post-Friends The projects have been “work of a different caliber, but I love it, whatever happens, even if it’s a dumb and terribly revised comedy, it doesn’t matter if it brings me joy.”
