Jennifer Aniston gave up a marriage to Brad Pitt and children to focus on becoming a Hollywood star, and by in large she’s met her goal. She’s the queen of rom-coms, but does she have any regrets?
Her movies may be forgettable, but there is no denying her star power and she talks about her two-decade career at length in a interview on “Inside the Actors’ Studio,” which also marks a career milestone of sorts.
Sooner or later almost every A-List Hollywood actor appears on the show, from Robert De Niro to Al Pacino. And, Jen takes her place next to those stars.
The episode airs Monday (July 11) at 8 PM on Bravo, and the cable network has already teased some juicy tidbits.
Among some of the revelations, she talks about “Friends,” the hit NBC sitcom that launched her career and the bittersweet moment the show came to an end.
While, most of her cast mates have slipped into relative obscurity, the have also led full lives, marrying and having children.
But Jen carried on with her acting with the dedication of a long-distance runner.
“It’s one of the greatest jobs I ever had,” Aniston said. “It gave me everything. It gave me this ridiculously blessed life and career and taught me so much, and it’s the best time I ever had.”
“The last scene, we just wept, cried our eyes out, in front of the whole show,” she said.
“A couple of us stayed really late and we crawled up to the roof of stage 24 and we drank champagne and just watched the sunrise. It was really wonderful.”
While Jen, for the most part, has proved a staple at the box office, she’s plowed through a succession of boyfriends since the end of her five-year marriage to Pitt.
After divorcing Pitt in 2005, Aniston filmed “The Breakup” with Vince Vaughan, and said the flick was essential in her healing. WTF?
The film was trashed by critics (scoring a 34 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes), but was an unqualified success at the box office, grossing $203 million worldwide and solidifying Jen as a box office draw.
Her latest movie, “Horrible Bosses,” also stars Seth Gordon, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Kevin Spacey, and Colin Ferrell.
