Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are in the center of a tabloid storm, but what’s really going on with them? Last we heard, the tabloids suggested an incredibly sexist, idiotic story about Jennifer weeping her sorrows away while Justin is partying and living it up in NYC. Well, they didn’t phrase it exactly like that. But they did state that Justin left Jennifer in Los Angeles to go to New York, while Jennifer’s been devastated and ‘all alone‘ in L.A.
Disregarding the fact that Jennifer probably has a million friends in L.A., the tabloids seem to find satisfaction in always showcasing Jennifer as the poor, sad victim. We get it, tabloids. Brad Pitt happened more than eight years ago. They probably realize that selling Jennifer that way sells more magazines, and they especially love twisting it by claiming that Jennifer’s behavior is what makes the men want to leave her. Oh, and I suppose it was Jennifer’s ‘behavior’ that made Brad cheat on her? That made Justin ‘leave’ her?
I’m usually never a Jennifer Aniston defender, and I’m pissed at the tabloids for making me support her. She’s a mediocre actress that got famous off her relationships and public persona, and she does the same thing in every movie. Surprise surprise, I actually like my celebrities to be talented. But beyond that, this fascination with Jennifer being ‘alone’ is kind of creepy. Can’t she just be an independent woman who’s happy with her millions and millions of dollars and single life?
And even if she’s not single, can’t Jennifer and Justin be apart for work? I’m not saying there’s nothing wrong in their relationship – but I am saying that blaming it on Jennifer is silly. In all honesty, both Jennifer and Justin seem like they’re moving on, maybe from each other. Justin has a hot new career, and Jennifer’s got a career resurgence thanks to the success of We’re The Millers. She’s got a new piercing, a new haircut – all the signs of someone moving on. And shocker, their supposed breakup might have been a mutual decision! I know, right!?? /sarcasm over.
