Actress Jennifer Aniston has gone on record to deny rumors that she is eating a diet of baby food.
Aniston is currently hanging out in Hawaii shooting her new movie “Just Go With It,” in which she stars across from funnyman Adam Sandler.
While some baby food maybe tasty, she insists that she is not living off of it: “I’ve been asked lately, ‘Jen, what’s this baby food diet all about?’” she says. “I kept thinking: That’s the strangest question ever.”
The diet in question, involves eating up to 14 servings of baby food during your day, followed by a healthy dinner.
“Sorry, but the last time I had baby food, I believe I was 1,” she added.
Looks like Jennifer Aniston, 41, will be moving to Cougar Town… that is, if producer Bill Lawrence gets his way! “Jennifer Aniston is going to be on the show next season, she doesn’t know it yet,” Bill said March 5 at the 25th Annual Paley Fest in Beverly Hills. “Courteney [Cox] promised me that as a birthday gift.”
Jen’s appearance on the show would mark the second time Courteney, 45, has landed her a much-hyped TV gig. She previously appeared as a rival magazine editor on an episode of Courteney’s short-lived FX series Dirt. And considering Lisa Kudrow, 46, has already guest starred on an episode of Cougar Town this season, it wouldn’t surprise us at all to see a few more Friends start popping up!
Along with Jen’s hopeful appearance, Bill also talked about upcoming guest spots from Nia Vardalos and another of Courteney’s friends, Sheryl Crow. Bill says Sheryl’s got some serious acting chops. “[She's] easily the nicest rock star out of all the rock stars I’ve ever met in my life,” he said. “And she could do this as her day job.”
Jennifer Aniston wants to expand her brand! A source close to the actress tells OK! Jen has been quietly working on a branded fragrance for the last 20 months. So what will the name of Jen’s signature scent be?
With launch looming, she’s still uncertain about what to call the scent. Jen “has yet to get 100 percent behind any name,” says the source, “but the one she favors is ‘Aniston.’ ”
That choice met with less than-unanimous approval. Some of the ad executives behind the perfume really disliked it. Another suggestion, “Echo,” was also rejected.
“It’s all about capturing the idea of romance and freedom at any age, but it’s hard to do that in just one word,” says the source.
The A-list actress has been the face of ad campaigns, the most recent being her partnership with smartwater.
“Jen wants to unleash some really glamorous commercials on TV,” once her perfume is named, the source says.
Can’t wait for the launch!
The former Friends actress, who was photographed in Mexico with the Scottish hunk, reportedly flew the film crew down with her to capture the saucy pictures.
The media was initially fooled by Gerard and Jen canoodling but now reports say it was all set up by the actress, OK! Magazine revealed.
Just weeks before the release of their new film The Bounty Hunter, Jen wanted to capitalise on rumours of a fling with Butler and made sure every bikini shot was showing off her best angle, the magazine reported.
When confronted about flying the film crew to Mexico, she told Access Hollywood: “These people survive on us coming down and spending money.
“It sort of made sense to say: Hey, let’s help out Mexico.”
Earlier in the week reports said Jen thought the sex with Gerard was ‘amazing’ but now it seems her alleged sexual escapades were a sham.
Singer John Mayer has always enjoyed quite a solid reputation of a loudmouth, though never before has he put his foot in his mouth like he did in a recent interview we were also telling you about. Presumably with the intention of making it his most honest interview ever, Mayer started dishing details of his relationships with Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston, much to the shock and humiliation of both.
Two of this week’s tabloids have covers precisely with this, as Cover Awards can confirm, though one chooses to talk of Jessica Simpson alone, while the other claims both feel as if they had just been “stabbed in the heart” by Mayer, a man whom they once loved and trusted. As it happens, given the backlash and media frenzy the Mayer interview has generated, neither OK! Magazine nor Star might actually be that far from the truth.
“Jessica Simpson was stunned on Feb. 10 when she awoke to a flood of texts, e-mails and Tweets asking if she had seen ex-flame John Mayer’s interview. ‘Jessica was shocked,’ a pal of the singer tells OK!. ‘She was really [upset] at first when she heard about it, then she read the whole interview, and the first thing that she said was, I’m annoyed John would sink so low’.” OK! magazine writes. The aforementioned interview would be the same one in which Mayer gave lurid details of their life behind closed doors, comparing her to “napalm” and “cocaine” in bed.
Star magazine, though, says the two stunners are not about to give up the fight without at least causing a ruckus, as if that was something they would ever do. The cover reads in screaming caps, “Jen & Jessica, Stabbed in the heart! John kisses & tells… everything. Now it’s revenge!” Further captions promise more startling revelations inside the magazine like, “Jen’s furious call to John; Jess freaks out; What THEY have on HIM,” as Cover Awards can confirm.
As we also informed you at the time, while Mayer really did air the dirty laundry on his affair with Simpson, he kept quite to himself about that with Jennifer Aniston, saying only that he had and continued to love her and that he would be forever sorry that things did not work out between them.
Jennifer Aniston may have looked tan and relaxed on the cover of several tabloids this week, pictures from her recent trip to Cabo San Lucas. But Jen — who turned 41 on Thursday — revealed to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush that her visit wasn’t just about celebrating her birthday.
While in Cabo for the interview with Jen, Billy met Leigh Kilton-Smith, Jen’s acting coach and close friend of 20 years. The two women have teamed up for charity down South.
“When you drive up to this place you see these kids come running out and you hear a chorus of, ‘La, la, la, la,” Jen said of the children of Casa Hogar Sion orphanage and school, located in Tijuana, Mexico.
To support and help finance the orphanage, the actress works closely with the charity Friends of El Faro, which was co-founded by Leigh.
“These kids don’t feel like they are sitting there going, ‘Oh, my life sucks. Look at where I Live!’” Jennifer recounted. “They have been given a lot of love and they’re getting educated, which is the most important thing for them.”
Jen teamed up with the One & Only Palmilla resort to create the Farita doll. Handmade in Mexico and costing $95, it raises funds for the orphanage, which was founded in 1998 by Mama Carmen and Papa Jorge.
Jen has a long history of helping the safe haven out.
“She’s rescued us so many times from letting the kids fall into positions of desperation,” Leigh added.
In fact, Jen and Leigh have collaborated before. Leigh is more than an acting coach, just call her the woman behind Jen’s big screen successful start.
“I got the movie called, ‘The Good Girl’ and I was like, ‘Um, Leigh, I’ve got to put my tail between my legs and do it,’” Jen recalled of transitioning from funny TV “Friend” to serious big screen star. “So anyway, the first thing she did was put weights on my hands because she said I talk with my hands too much.”
“What ‘Anistonian’ quality have you instilled?” Billy asked Leigh.
“I taught her this,” Leigh said, twirling her hair Aniston style as the three laughed.
“Wow, she’s making fun of my hair twirl,” Jen said.
“That’s the moneymaker right there,” Billy added.

There we were thinking those pictures of Jennifer Aniston sunning herself on a Mexican beach were simply a treat as she celebrated her 41st birthday.
But apparently her stay at the $9,000-a-night villa at Cabo San Lucas wasn’t about enjoyment, it was for the good of the Mexican people.
Aniston has spent the last few days with celebrity pals soaking up the sunshine and hospitality in Mexico’s popular Baja California peninsular, which is a favourite holiday destination for the actress.
However, Ms Aniston is insisting that the break was actually an act of philanthropy, a charitable act that came to pass after rumoured boyfriend Gerard Butler suggested it was a good way to show people that Mexico is still a great holiday destination despite bad publicity over the swine flu outbreak and drug-related violence.
The actress even managed to fit in a little promotional work, launching Farita dolls which are being sold in conjunction with the resort to raise funds for an orphanage in the northern city of Tijuana which she visited.
John Mayer’s new song “Heartbreak Warfare” may not be about ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, but the rocker’s new album, Battle Studies is strongly influenced by his failed romance. Let’s face it Jen was too good for the goofy guitar genius.
Mayer began dating Aniston in April 2008 and the relationship sputtered to an end last January (09) after one brief reconciliation. John now confesses that his Twitter obsession helped drive them apart, something Jen complained about months ago.
“One of the most significant differences between us was that I was tweeting. There was a rumor I was dumped because I was tweeting too much. That wasn’t it,” he told Playboy magazine.
“She saw my involvement in technology as a courting distraction, and I always said, ‘These are the new rules.’”
Technology-wise, he said, Aniston is still grounded in 1998. That ultimately was the problem.
Mayer wrote much of his new album while dating the former “Friends” star and his thoughts on the romance made it into some of his song’s lyrics.
“There’s a level of honesty in that record that probably made her uncomfortable, but I couldn’t let that change the way I wrote songs,” he said.
But he draws the line on “Heartbreak Warfare.” Here’s a sampling of the lyrics:
- Lightning strike
Inside my chest to keep me up at night
Dream of ways
To make you understand my pain Clouds of sulfur in the air
Bombs are falling everywhere
It’s heartbreak warfare
Once you want it to begin
No one really ever wins
In heartbreak warfare
“I feel bad because people think ‘Heartbreak Warfare’ is about her. I wanna go on record saying it’s not. That woman would never use heartbreak warfare. That woman was the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person,” he told the magazine.
Mayer’s reputation definitely took a hit for the way the romance ended. He came across looking much shallower than his musical talent suggests.
“When people hear the record, I hope the songs make them think about their lives, not my life,” he says. “I don’t write songs in order to stick it to my exes.”
While she certainly hasn’t had the best of luck in the love department, recent reports tell that Jennifer Aniston is looking for a man that has nothing to do with show business.
An insider tells Us magazine of the “Along Came Polly” actress’ plan, “She wants to be set up with a wealthy businessman, not a celebrity.”
Meanwhile, friends of the beloved actress aren’t all that sure that she’ll live up to her new agenda of landing an “older, mature man.”
A source tells, “She always ends up drifting back to actors and musicians. Her friends want a normal guy, but she’s drawn to the attention.”
JENNIFER Aniston decided to change her diet after realizing she had gotten a little on the “heavy” side.
The actress says although she’s keen to stay in shape, she refuses to cut out “fun” foods — such as cheeseburgers — no matter how fattening they might be.
“I hate that self-worth is metered by your weight,” said the 40-year-old singleton. “I didn’t even sense I was heavy until someone told me.
“Now I watch my foods, but salad and fruit is no fun, so I won’t not eat a cheeseburger.”
Aniston recently denied reports she’s planning to open her own Mexican restaurant.
