More info about Jen, care of People. Are you READY?!
Questions about feminism have been popular with entertainment journalists for the past few years, and being the A lister that hse is Jennifer Aniston has been asked about her feminism several times, and she always maintains that yes, she is a feminist and no, she has no problem identifying that way. You know, like most sane people. There’s no weird, “humanism,” or that it’s “her own business,” or whatever.” Anyhow, as part of her People Magazine “Most Beautiful” cover, Aniston answered a lot of questions about all sorts of things, including feminism. And she cites Gloria Steinem (obvi) as the person who taught her about feminism, and loves her. All this is good. The real shocker…her hatred of SKINNY JEANS.
Jennifer’s biggest beauty icon is Gloria Steinem. “I’ve always thought Gloria is quite stunning for many, many reasons besides her exterior. She’s taught me about feminism. There was a time when I was like, ‘I’m not quite sure I understand what this is?’ And she’s like, ‘It’s very simple: it’s just about equality. That’s all it is.’ She’s just taught me – have you seen her HBO documentary? I’ve seen it like eight times. She’s just a very beautiful, strong woman.”
What Justin Theroux likes to see her wear: “Well, let me tell you. I think I’m pretty much the same but he really enjoys me in a skinny jean, which I loathe. But I think I have more skinny jeans these days than normal.”
How she influenced Justin’s wardrobe: “Color! Not just black. It’s quite adorable.”
What she’s learned about love: “Oh it comes in all shapes and sizes. It’s something to be taken care of and cherished. And paid attention to. It’s a blessing.”
Come on, Jen. I’m with Justin on this one. I think you look adorbs in skinny jeans! Theroux has always been a little more edgy hipster than jen, so I get how he’d dig that jean style. As for the feminism stuff? Good. Keep reading. Keep learning. We have lots more to fight, so I’d challenge Jen to go deeper than Gloria on this one. But I appreciate her allegiance to the cause!
