Tired of the tabloids, Aniston just goes with it

Jennifer Aniston is no stranger to fame, but there are still some aspects she hasn’t gotten used to.

Jennifer Aniston is no stranger to fame, but there are still some aspects she hasn’t gotten used to. For instance, walking a red carpet still produces butterflies in her stomach. “It’s a fun excitement,” she says. “It’s sort of like going onstage. It’s butterflies, it’s nerves, it keeps it new. Hopefully that fear will never go away.”

One thing she would like to go away, of course, would be all the tabloid speculation about her personal life — though that will probably outlast her pre-carpet jitters. Still, Aniston has learned how to weather the gossip storms, even if her family hasn’t. “If I don’t know that it’s there, I’m just living my life, having fun doing my thing,” she says. “The only way I’m really privy to it is when I have to field questions from my family members — because, for some reason, they still believe it’s true.”

Aniston would much rather people focus on her work, like her latest comedy, “Just Go With It.” In it, she stars as the assistant to a plastic surgeon (Adam Sandler) who goes along with his harebrained scheme to pose as his ex-wife to assuage his new girlfriend’s fears that he’s a philanderer. The movie takes a few jabs at plastic surgery enthusiasts — and even features a cameo by Heidi Montag­ — but it also gave Aniston a chance to think about the practice.

“There’s an extreme pressure on women and men to just stay young,” she says. “And the unfortunate thing is a lot of women who go too far end up looking a hell of a lot older than they actually are. It sort of has the reverse effect. So ... talk to me in 10 years.”
