It’s been kind of a slow news week, so here’s a bit about how Jennifer Aniston got a completely meaningless award in order to promote her new movie Wanderlust. Oh, and did we mention she gets naked in her new movie? Because she really wants your fifteen bucks. The National Post reports:
Actress Jennifer Aniston was honored with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame on Wednesday, the first of the Friends actors to receive the emblem of celebrity that she described as “surreal.”
“I was born in Sherman Oaks, California. I am a California girl through and through, and I’m sure this has always just sort of been in the back of my mind,” said Aniston at the ceremony.
“It probably wasn’t even a dream, it was one of my wildest dreams. I don’t think that I ever even thought that this would be here, this day. So I am utterly humbled and grateful,” the Friends actress told her fans and friends.
Yeah, it’s surreal in the way that we’re pretending that paying thousands of dollars for an award is some sort of feat of celebrity. Seriously, Jen has been a celebrity for almost twenty years, why are we going to pretend that the fact that she (and a movie studio) can fork over a couple thousand for a star is some sort of huge event?
