First, Bill O'Reilly blames all our societal ills on her; then her handlers forget to tell her that using the word "retard" on a live national show like Live With Regis and Kelly probably isn't the best idea; and then her movie "The Switch" bombs at the box office.

Yup. It sure sucks to be Jenn.

But she's not the kind of girl to sit around and mope. In fact, today ABC confirmed that she'll be joining Courteney Cox on the Cougar Town premiere next month.

  • Bradley Cooper (Jenn is 6 years older)
  • Orlando Bloom (Jenn is 9 years older)
  • Paul Sculfor, random British model guy (Jenn is 2 years older chronologically; mentally the gap is probably greater)
