Outspoken Aniston – more than just a tabloid girl
Jennifer Aniston has finally broken the silence on her ex husband Brad Pitt and his present partner Angelina Jolie, as well as on her love John Mayer in her outspoken interview for American Vogue December 2008 issue.
So let’s let Jennifer speak:
Jennifer on love:
This whole ‘Poor lonely Jen’ thing, this idea that I’m so unlucky in love? I actually feel I’ve been unbelievably lucky in love. Just because at this stage my life doesn’t have the traditional framework to it-the husband and the two kids and the house in Connecticut-it’s mine. It’s my experience. And if you don’t like the way it looks, then stop looking at it! Because I feel good. I don’t feel like I’m supposed to be any further along or somewhere that I’m not. I’m right where I’m supposed to be… But you know, it [love] isn’t designed. Love just shows up and you go, ‘Oh, wow, this is going to be a hayride and a half.’
I don’t know. I don’ like girls whining and complaining about wanting a man! I never liked Sex and the City, the kind of thing where women only feel empowered once they find the Man. It is just not up my alley. I don’t believe in it. There is nothing you can control about love. Somebody once said, Everything you want in the world is just right outside your comfort zone. Everythingyoucouldpossiblywant!
On Angelina Jolie:
There was stuff printed there [Vogue's interview with Jolie when she said she fell in love with Pitt while shooting Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and while he was still married to Aniston] that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening. I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn’t wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.
On Brad Pitt:
We have exchanged a few very kind hellos and wishing you wells and sending you love and congratulations on your babies. I have nothing but absolute admiration for him, and…I’m proud of him! I think he’s really done some amazing things.
… and their divorce:
Well, it never was that bad [though it will be hard for a lot of people to believe]. I mean, look, it’s not like divorce is something that you go, ‘Oooh, I can’t wait to get divorced!’ It doesn’t feel like a tickle. But I’ve got to tell you, it’s so vague at this point, it’s so faraway in my mind, I can’t even remember the darkness. I mean, in the end, we really had an amicable split. It wasn’t mean and hateful and all of this stuff that they tried to create about Brad can’t talk to Jen and Jen can’t talk to Brad because this person won’t allow it. It just didn’t happen.
The marriage didn’t work out. And pretty soon after we separated, we got on the phone and we had a long, long conversation with each other and said a lot of things, and ever since we’ve been unbelievably warm and respectful of each other. Whoever said everything has to be forever, that’s setting your hopes too high. It’s too much pressure. And I think if you put that pressure on yourself-because I did! Fairy tale! It has to be the right one!-that’s unattainable.
On her ex Vince Vaughn:
I call Vince my defibrillator. He literally brought me back to life. My first gasp of air was a big laugh! It was great. I love him. He’s a bull in a china shop. He was lovely and fun and perfect for the time we had together. And I needed that. And it sort of ran its course.
On John Mayer:
[I] barely knew his music and then we ran into each other a week later, and that was that.
He had to put that out there that he broke up with me. And especially because it’s me. It’s not just some girl he’s dating. I get it. We’re human. But I feel seriously protective of him and us. Trust me, you’ll never see that happen again from that man.
He is a wonderful guy. We care about each other. It’s funny when you hit a place in a relationship and you both realize, We maybe need to do something else, but you still really, really love each other. I deeply, deeply care about him; we talk, we adore one another. And that’s where it is.
On having children:
I’ve said it so many times: I’m going to have children. I just know it.
On her age:
I’m not saying I’m 40. I’m 30-10. I don’t feel 40. I don’t know what it means. I just know that all of a sudden it’s something that’s in print next to my name. AND NOW SHE’S 40. It almost feels like some sort of badge of honor in a weird way.
On her estranged mother
She’s changed. She’s humbled with age. She fell in love. At 73 years old. I’m like, No, no, no, no, no! I don’t want to hear how great the sex is!
On her high profile life:
You basically watch my life. It happens in front of you. And I can protect it and try to control things only to a certain extent. I think what I’m doing now is letting go of the reins a little bit and saying, ‘It is what it is.’ But there is more to me than just a tabloid girl.
