I’ve added photos of Jennifer filming scenes for ‘The Bounty’ today (Aug 21) on a roof top!
With all the Friends TV news this week (here and here), you fans were just a wee bit excited to read the report that Jennifer Aniston is nearing a deal to join Courteney Cox on Cougar Town early in the coming season.
So is it true? We just talked to Cougar executive producer Bill Lawrence and he says:
“Nothing’s happened yet,” Bill says. “I’d kill to get Jennifer on the show, and if I had any inclination it was happening, I would be telling everybody ’cause I don’t really give a sh-t. I would love it to happen and the second it did I would tell everybody in the world, but nothing’s happened.”
“By the nature of Jennifer and Courteney’s friendship,” Lawrence continues, “they’re gonna have to answer questions about that forever and ever…But the reality is Jennifer Aniston I think does anywhere from 70 to 80 movies a year. She works a lot, so it’s tough to make that stuff work. But I’d love it to happen.”
As for the ridiculousness that went down at the TCA Press Tour today, where a reporter asked Matthew Perry, essentially, why David Schwimmer isn’t as “successful” as the rest of the cast, Lawrence—who used to write for Friends—was quick to jump to David’s defense:
“That’s such a fabrication. I know all those guys. I used to work on that show. How come David Schwimmer directing feature films and directing plays and producing stuff is considered not as good, when the reality is he can do any f–king show he wanted to do?! All he has to ask. If he wanted to do a show, he’d do it in a heartbeat.”
Thanks to my friend Sam for sending me two rare production stills from a couple of appearances Jennifer made in a television show, ‘Herman’s Head’. Click the images to view in the gallery!
(Let’s hope this is finally the truth!!)
After a year’s worth of will-she-or-won’t-she speculation, Aniston is nearing a deal to reunite with her former Friends costar (and real-life BFF) in an early episode of the show’s second season (premiering on Sept. 22), sources confirm to me exclusively.
ABC declined to comment, while Cougar Town executive producer Bill Lawrence would only say, “I would love for it to happen but there’s nothing to talk about yet.”
This would mark only the second time the pair have worked together on a scripted series since Friends went off the air in 2004. Their first reunion was in 2007, when they reteamed for an episode of Cox’s FX dramedy Dirt.
Cox’s other female Friend, Lisa Kudrow, guest-starred as an angry dermatologist during the show’s first season. There’s no word on who Aniston would be playing.
I’ve updated a few of albums in the 2006 photoshoot section. Although some of these photos are from the same set, I tried to separate them by how they were published in the magazine. However; since Jennifer was featured in numerous international magazines, this was difficult.
The biggest update is from the November, 2007 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. I’ve added over 100 photos that weren’t used for the publication. There are some beautiful photos, too!
If you see duplicates, it’s because I updated the album with a photo that was larger/better quality or to replace the ones with the agency tag in the center of the photo.
I hope you enjoy the photos!
Just when we thought we couldn’t be any more jealous of Jennifer Aniston’s fantastic life, along comes the news that she’ll soon be acting opposite the Old Spice Guy, a.k.a. the man of our dreams.
Isaiah Mustafa, who shot to fame with his manly Old Spice commercials, has been cast in Horrible Bosses, starring Aniston and Jason Bateman. It’s a small role, Mustafa told the Hollywood Reporter, but the delectable actor has proven he can do a lot with only a little bit of screen time.
“Who wouldn’t want to be in one of these funny, irreverent comedies?” Mustafa said. “The cast is great. I’m playing a cop because I play these authoritative characters well. I don’t know exactly who I’m in the scene with — maybe Jennifer Aniston!”
The Emmy-nominated commercials also helped Mustafa land a talent agreement with NBC last month, and now it’s been announced the 36-year-old will appear on the fourth season of Chuck.
“I’m going to be filming an episode of Chuck next week. I don’t know how many episodes yet, but I do know I’m playing an official CIA guy (named Greta). The character is pretty goofy, so it’s going to be fun,” he said, adding he’d also love to join Saturday Night Live.
If you’re hoping for some more macho, hysterical Old Spice ads, Mustafa said no other commercials are planned — but, since he signed on to be the brand’s spokesman for a year, the company has a few more months to change its mind.
Jennifer Aniston chose London for the worldwide launch of her debut fragrance – and appeared in Harrods yesterday to meet the fans desperate to be the first to buy it. Two hundred of them were granted a private audience with Jen where she signed bottles and posed for photos with fans. VOGUE.COM caught up with the actress straight after.
So what are you doing in London!? Why did you choose to launch the perfume here?
It just felt right. Harrods is very elegant, and I guess if it works here, then we’re doing well. And I love coming to London – especially now, when it’s sunny. Yesterday we just took a long walk through the streets, which sometimes I can’t do…but I guess the photographers hadn’t worked out that I was here yet, so I was able to do some shopping, visit some clothes stores and furniture stores and some galleries. The weather, though, is…not a great thing. That might be what stops my fantasies of living here in the end.
How would you describe the perfume?
I wanted it to be a mix of smells I love: that smell when you walk through a beautiful garden that’s full of flowers, not overwhelming like some perfume smells, but more natural. So it’s the smell of the jasmine from my garden, and the smell of summertime, and the ocean, and sun tan lotion. I’m not a big perfume kind of girl, I’ve always loved light scents and oils so it was quite a challenge to do something light and natural enough – but I think we did it!
Anything you definitely didn’t want to include?
Not so much individual scents, but I can’t bear it when people wear overpowering perfume…like you get in an elevator with someone and just know they really mis-gauged it. Men are the worst for it too! I did have a trainer who wore an extremely strong cologne that he thought would mask the – let’s call it the aroma – of his workout as he went from class to class, but it just made it worse.
Have you ever had any disastrous fragrance encounters with men? Like dated someone whose aftershave you just couldn’t stand?
If that had ever happened I would have sorted it out on the first date! I would quite like to create a fragrance for men though – something that I like…
And what are you doing for the rest of the summer?
Working! Then I do press for The Switch, (a romantic comedy also starring Jason Bateman, Juliette Lewis, Patrick Wilson and Jeff Goldblum), then I do another movie, then I’m done for a while. So no holidays until then!
Jennifer Aniston the fragrance is available now at Harrods, priced from £23.
Jennifer Aniston’s best friend of all might be her treadmill.
The actress, 41, is the only 40-plus — or 30-plus! — star to chart on the Women’s Health “Best Summer Bodies of 2010″ list, and staying in such great shape isn’t easy.
“It’s simple,” she told the Daily Mirror at the London launch of her eponymous perfume in London on Wednesday. “[I] run, work out every day. I do a lot of running — exercise is so important.”
The single actress added, “Plus it’s all about balance. Work, exercise, diet, you need balance.”
Aniston suggested that her fame helps keep her motivated, too.”I am, perhaps, fortunate in that my career, the public awareness it brings, gives me a certain freedom in this way. But, of course, there are positives and negatives in any career, it’s not all going to be perfect.”
ndeed, a source on the Hawaiian set of her recently wrapped flick Just Go With It told Us that the 5-foot-6 actress is “very conscious of her body…She’s obsessed with staying fit and young…[She] rarely misses a workout.”
