American Cinematheque presentation – Nov. 15, 2012
There probably aren’t too many people who have lived under as much constant public scrutiny, for as long, as has Jennifer Aniston. It seems that she’s been coming into our homes every week for ages. While she has plenty of detractors, it’s tough to deny – anyone who’s been this popular for this long must be doing some thing – or a lot of things – right.
Granted, not every one of her movies sets box-office records, but she’s made just as many movies that have been successful and have been critically praised. Right now, I’m thinking of “Along Came Polly.” I liked it a lot; it has some great comedy moments, and she looked fantastic in a pair of tight, molded-to-her-butt red shorts. Then there’s “Bruce Almighty.” The vision of Jennifer in a tight white T-short, cupping her boobs, and asking Jim Carey, “It’s weird. I woke up this morning and I swear my boobs felt bigger. Do they look bigger to you?” I don’t know if they looked bigger, but they always looked very fine to me.
Of course, we can’t forget the high-profile men she has dated or has otherwise been linked to, including Tate Donovan, Paul Rudd, Vince Vaughn, Orlando Bloom, Owen Wilson, John Mayer, Gerard Butler and Justin Theroux, and oh yeah, she was married to Brad Pitt for more that four years.
It seems that hardly a week goes by in which she’s not on the cover of at least one magazine and written about in six tabloids. In spite of it all – the failed romances, some s0-so movies, and the never-ending presence in the public spotlight, she’s as popular as ever. And good Heavens, at 44 she’s still in the kind of shape that makes women half her age jealous. Want proof? Glad you asked.

She rarely makes fashion faux-pas. Time after time, at premieres and just about any special event, she’s one of the special ones who grabs your attention and makes you say, “Holy moley!” The photos here are just a tiny sampling. I could go on and on, but these should be more than influential enough to make you agree – she’s still fabulous after 40.
