In the world of Hollywood, there is nobody better than Jennifer Aniston. She’s a great actress, a wonderful comedienne, and she’s the perfect role model for women everywhere.
So, this week it’s celebrity fashion designer, Anna Sui and her thoughts on social media and being famous.
There have been several interviews for Ellen DeGeneres. This is one of the more recent ones. In it, Jennifer Aniston discusses the end of Friends and how she coped with her divorce.
She was supposed to play one of the main characters in the third season of American Horror Story, but the role went to Sarah Paulson.
Aniston recently sat down for an interview with Variety while promoting her new movie, ‘The Other Woman’. During the interview, she talked about her roles in films like ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin’ and ‘Friends With Benefits’.
When she appeared on stage with her fellow actor Sebastian Stan, it was a delight to see how they seemed to know each other from before.
The two were discussing their time in the industry and the conversation soon turned to the culture of becoming famous for being famous. Aniston speaks candidly about how fame, as well as the culture of celebrity, is evolving while they talked about the famous Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee sex tape leaked in 1995.
‘It was right at the time when the internet really shaped so much of a new culture about people becoming famous for basically doing nothing. But yet having these incredibly careers, and then women’s reputation I mean Pam [Anderson], Paris Hilton, ‘ she said.
‘I feel so lucky that we got a little taste of the industry before it became what it is today, which is just different, ‘ Aniston said, referring to social media and streaming services.
‘You’re famous from TikTok, you’re famous from YouTube, you’re famous from Instagram. It’s almost like it’s diluting the actor’s job. ‘
After appearing in a string of TV shows, such as “Friends” and “Sex and the City,” Aniston went on say that she had trouble getting her foot in the door when she first got into acting.
‘I’m the worst auditioner. I would walk into that room just shaking it’s a shock I got hired, ‘ she shared. ‘I couldn’t get hired for like two years because I was my own worst enemy walking into a room. ‘
Although she was famous in the ’80s, it wasn’t until the ’90s that Jennifer Aniston landed the iconic role of Rachel Green on the hit
‘I was such a grown up by then, ‘ Aniston said in an interview with InStyle referring to the early years of her acting career. ‘I had moved away from home. I had been on six failed television shows. I waitressed for years in New York before I got anything. And I was a telemarketer selling time shares in the Poconos. I didn’t make one sale. I was terrible at it. ‘
The show Friends completely changed Aniston’s life. She got famous just as she was getting married and now it’s all about her children.
She said the cast of Crazy Rich Asians came together to support each other as they began to experience the fame of their movie.
She explained that she could not imagine having to go through that experience without social media in the picture.
‘We had each other because you couldn’t really talk about it outside, but it was before social media so we had some sanity. I can’t imagine now how young kids today are becoming famous because there’s no place to escape and understand what you’re going through. ‘
She continued and said ‘I miss it [those days]. I feel very nostalgic for the past. ‘
