Yes, Jennifer, You Are Hot
Does this seem desperate to you? Or is that unfair?
Hot on the heels of the recent “she’s uncool” “no YOU’RE uncool” battle of the magazine covers and Oprah appearances, we now have Jennifer Aniston smiling cheerfully on the cover of GQ wearing … a necktie.
Yes, she looks fabulous. For her age, for someone 20 years her junior, for anyone. But isn’t there something a little … weird about this? Is it unfair to say she’s trying too hard? Would we have the same reaction to any other gorgeous female celebrity in the same cover shoot – say Jessica Biel or Charlize Theron – unencumbered by the baggage of being the world’s most well-known woman scorned?
We’re torn, Bettys … on one hand, we’re thrilled Jennifer looks so great, is so comfortable in her body, and appears to be happy with her place in the world, not needing to conform to the expectations of coupledom and motherhood. On the other hand, something about this naked photo-shoot has an air of desperation, of trying to prove something to the world, to Brad, to herself.
And on the third hand, we ask ourselves … why are we so interested in this anyway?
