Jennifer Aniston Really Is Dull, Just Like Brad Pitt Said


jennifer anistonGet ready, everybody! It's time for another round of "Walking on Eggshells With Jennifer Aniston!" Yes, it's true -- Aniston's feelings almost got hurt. Again! Oh, cruel world! Hasn't the poor woman suffered enough?

Zach Galifianakis, hysterically funny star of The Hangover, recently admitted to nearly offending Jennifer "Above Reproach" Aniston when she appeared as a guest on his skit "Between Two Ferns." Apparently around the time of the skit's taping, Galifianakis came across a Brad Pitt look-alike in his hotel.

Galifianakis immediately had the idea of somehow using faux-Brad in the skit. Well, of course he did! A Brad Pitt double showed up right when he was getting ready to stage a funny interview with Jennifer Aniston! That's like a blessing from the comedy gods. A perfect storm of hilarity!

Or it could have been, if somebody hadn't reacted to the suggestion like a whiny spoiled brat.

Can you guess which self-centered, overly sensitive person I'm talking about?

Predictably, Aniston did NOT want to include a Pitt look-alike in her "Between Two Ferns" skit. Because, you know, her pain is still too raw ... sniff, sniff ... and she's a good girl, not like that trashy tattooed harlot her husband took up with, she didn't deserve to be treated that way ... sob, sob.

Oh, for crying out loud. Really?

Every time Jennifer Aniston gets all heartbroken 13-year-old when something Brad-related happens, I can't help but think she's a.) being really irritating and b.) missing an opportunity for some killer PR.

Think about it -- what if Jen was a good sport and played along with Galifianakis? It would have been really funny, for one thing, but it also would have gained her some much-needed respect. When a person is big enough to poke fun at themselves, especially in the public eye, that's just undeniably cool.

It's tough to sympathize with somebody who takes themselves too seriously, which is why, even though I can acknowledge that, yes, Aniston was probably deeply hurt by Pitt, I can't feel sorry for her. Never could. And now I'm just sick of the whole thing. Where did she get the idea that the entire world was supposed to tiptoe around her wounded ego?

Plus, "Between Two Ferns" is notoriously offensive. (Anybody remember the early episode starring Natalie Portman?) And while Galifianakis did an admirable job replacing Pitt as an offending presence with Tila Tequila, the skit could have been so much better.

Do you think Jennifer Aniston needs to get over herself?

I actually don't blame her for not wanting a BP look alike in the skit. How long have these people been divorced, anyway? Sounds to me like she wants to get on with her life and it doesn't include him.

This is my first time hearing that she was offended by him. I got the impression that people who care about celebrities were offended on her behalf. *shrug*

I think the media has done such an awful disservice to her as a human being just by keeping this mess in the tabloids for so long.  I can't even believe people still analyze it like the situation just happened yesterday.  Didn't this happen in 2005?  It seems she's moved on with her life.  I don't think its her fault that every time she does a movie or an interview, people want to ask her about her marriage to Brad Pitt.  No celebrity has any control over what gets printed about them to the public.  The media and the public needs to move on and stop trying to link her every move to Brad.  Let the woman live her life, Geez.

Or...She has happily moved on, and would like people to SHUT UP about a marriage that ended years ago. She decided not to feed the machine. She's over. Yes, that's the likely reason. You are acting like a moron.

Why is it bad that she doesn't want a look a like of her ex-husband in her career? If you got divorced, would you want thousands of people constantly reminding you of what never was? Don't you think she's going through enough without you calling her a whiney brat when in fact you are being the whiney brat?

Jennifer Aniston does not know who she is. She needs to accept who she is and stop trying to prove that she's still around and stop popping up to get back at Brad and Angelina. They don't care about her, she should not care about them. I feel sorry for her.

Wow - what an inane take on something that is simply explained as her not wanting to once again put herself and Pitt into the media spotlight. It gets done enough without her submission, so why should she want to add to that. And perhaps you ought to read and listen to Galifinakis' quotes on this - he said he agree with her completely and was reportedly embarrassed to have suggested this bit to begin with. The one gets grief if she at all comes close to mentioning Pitt or her marriage, she gets grief when others (like her ex and his current partner) talk about it/her, and now you're giving her grief for trying to shut down more discussion of her marriage and ex - she literally cannot win! The fact that she stood up for herself on this tells you she's moved on, it's people like you and others in the media/public that try to insinuate that she's sad and has had her feelings hurt. I don't ever hear that coming from Aniston herself.
