Jennifer Aniston In "Love"
If you have ever lost a relationship that you might have thought would be "forever," then you can identify with Jennifer Aniston. This pretty, talented and tough young woman has done a fabulous job of making the old saying "success is the best revenge" ring very true.
Aniston and Eckhart find Love Happens
Aniston has a great track record in both TV and film and continues to draw large audiences to her warm, real and quirky personality no matter what character she inhabits.
Aniston's latest character in the romantic drama Love Happens, is a relationship-bruised florist named Eloise, a nurturing, earth mother type who has sworn off men until she meets equally damaged self-help guru Burke Ryan (Aaron Eckhart) who can't follow his own advice -- sparks fly and the two start on the rocky road to couplesville because hey...love just happens.
The two actors, who did not have any on-set or real world romance, did form a mutual admiration society. Eckhart says about his co-star, "Jenn's such a better actor than I am. She's so effortless all the time. (I love) her timing and how playful she is and yet (she) can turn on a dime and just be so thoughtful".
We wanted to tap into those thoughts so we sat down with Ms. Aniston in Beverly Hills and got the latest on what she thinks about self-help books, her search for non-formula, more original romances be they comedy or drama, her disastrous first dates, her upcoming films and the fact that she'd love to do a movie about a mother/child relationship. Picture lovely Jenn in a slinky black crepe jersey top and skirt by Derek Lamb accessorized by gold neck chains, a huge gold watch and large gold and white disc dangle earrings.
Movies with more
SheKnows: This movie has a lot to say about dealing with grief. Are you looking for movies that have an edge like that, that have something more to offer?
SheKnows: Aaron's character writes a "get over grief" self-help book in the film. Have you ever read a self-help book and if so, did it help?
Jennifer Aniston: I'm afraid to say what the truth is. I think you can read (them). There are so many out there. God knows. But there's always one or two that you're like 'That's really interesting.' I think it's a good thing. I think it's oversaturated because we're now feeding on the fact that people are in need of this. You can't ask a question without it being analyzed into the ground and I think that's good for certain things but breathe a little bit. Let life happen to you, you know?
Up next…Aniston dishes on disastrous dates and the constant rumors surrounding her and male co-stars.
