Jennifer Aniston: I try not to let tabloids affect me


Even though she’s been in the spotlight for almost twenty years Jennifer Aniston can’t get used to being the target of tabloids and gossip. The actress says that she still finds it difficult to deal with malicious comments and false tabloid stories.

“All that stuff, it’s toxic,” she told the Associated Press. “It never gets un-jarring, but you do have to not let it imprison you, which is possible too.”

Aniston is one of the most sought-after actresses and has made a great career. However, she insists the fame hasn’t changed her and she has always tried to stay grounded.

“There’s times when you see people climbing and getting success and you start to see, oh, they’re starting to really change,” she explained. “So I always just make the effort to be as humble and grateful as possible.”


The 45 year-old is currently working on a couple of projects and likes to take risks and challenge herself even if it doesn’t always pay off.

“You just have to work really hard to tune out the noise and the static. Because it gets louder, and people really have an opinion, and you don’t want to shy away from taking chances for fear of what people will say, or living in the wreckage of the future of what may be if I do this,” she added.

    That’s the girl! Go, dear, enjoy your life and be happy with every single day you have! Life is about being happy, not about being bored or sad! This is about leaving all negative and about being open to positive! Jenny has the right attitude to life and life gives the best only to her!

    I cannot even imagine how the stars are living if their entire is being spotted step by step, and the things that the media was not able to spot, a lot of newspapers and magazines are simply making up. I am a quite testy person, so I can imagine how huge would have been scandals if I would ever read some lies about myself, while stars are dealing with that on every day basis. I guess it is kinda hard for them. And Jennifer Aniston is one of the best ones in dealing with. Only God knows what she has been through with the entire story about Brad and Angelina. Especially Angelina who though took her husband from her, it seemed like not enough that is why on every interview she was giving she kept saying some bad things about Aniston, and I have no idea where was her shame at that moment. I guess some people just don’t have it, and take everything in this life for granted.

    Jennifer Aniston is one of my favorite movie stars, since the “Friends” times, I still almost every time want to call her Rachel Green. But the good thing is that she is not stuck in one character, I totally loved her in “Just go for it” with Adam Sandler. Awe it was an awesome movie, and my favorite one, usually I watch it when I am in a bad mood and think that the entire world around me is crap, and all after watching it I realize that I was wrong and it is not as bad as it seemed before. Jennifer is one of those people who are able to make it true, just because the kindness is something that comes from her heart and she is not faking it. She really is one of those few who managed to stay kind to everyone no matter how big star she is, and no matter how many bad things she went through during her life.

    I think Jennifer has a point when she says that there is something toxic in all the cinema life, or in life of each famous person. For some reason of their own, people think that if they see the person on the screen in some movie, than this person kind of “belongs” to them, and they can write and publish anything about that person. I read a lot of articles where the stars were suing these kind of magazines, but still what is the use, if the magazine got much more money after selling the article than paid to the star during the court. Of course this way the lesson is not learned, as in order to learn it they are supposed to feel it, and realize that they are wrong. Anyways, those “dogs” do not even deserve being spoken about, as I am in a great mood, and very happy that soon Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux finally marry and hopefully would have children. I can’t wait to their beautiful kids.

    Jennifer is a ‘big girl’ and a rather developed and self-confident personality to let the ‘toxic’ tabloids make her feel bad. She has a great inner ‘cord’ and has practice sports and yoga for a long time. No matter, who brings negative energy in your life, unless you take it, it is not yours. So, Jennifer is very wise in not letting any ‘garbage’ into her life. She is a very beautiful woman, a talented Hollywood actress and I hope soon-to-become loving and caring wife and mother.
