What’s So Great About Jennifer Aniston?
Jennifer Aniston has made a string of unforgettable (and some very painful) movies, yet she’s still an A-lister!
Jennifer Aniston is finally up for an award! She’s competing against herself for a Razzie in the worst actress category for The Switch and The Bounty Hunter. This is the most recognition she’s received as an actress since she won a Golden Globe, Emmy and Screen Actors Guild awards for her work in Friends. One wonders: if Friends hadn’t been an ensemble cast with the other actors pushing her along, would she have gotten any recognition at all? Other than – “I want that haircut!” (Ironically now it’s Jen’s fame that pushes the rest of her former cast mates’ careers along.)
Look, Jen is a pretty woman. But her talent is … slight. Before Friends, she had bit parts in TV series and won the leading role in a gawdawful movie, Leprechaun. When you think about Jen, your first thought isn’t, “Oh my god, she’s an amazing actress.” It’s either, “Brad screwed around on her,” or, “I love her hair.” We look at Jen as a cute single woman trying to make her way. Which is all well and fine, but we never run to see her movies. And don’t say that you do. Almost every movie she’s starred in, from She’s the One to this past year’s The Switch and The Bounty Hunter, has tanked. It doesn’t matter if her leading actor is Gerard Butler, Jason Bateman, Aaron Eckhart, Owen Wilson, Kevin Costner or Mark Ruffalo; she rarely appears to have chemistry with any of them. Jen also seems to play the same high-strung, annoying, can’t make up her mind character in every flick. Funny, how that character is like … Rachel from Friends!
