Even her parents make her feel bad

Jennifer Aniston is getting no shortage of dating advice — even at home. The actress’ dad, John Aniston, thinks that the former “Friends” star should get back to her roots with a fellow Greek, according to People magazine. “I would be glad about that,” says John, who was born Yannis Anastassakis in Crete, adding that the beau would have to be a “good Greek man.” And what does that entail? “Honesty,” he says.

What the Jolie/Pitt clan talks about

With three of her six children having been adopted, it’s no surprise that Angelina Jolie is extremely open about the topic at home. “The words adoption, birth mothers [and] orphanages are happy words in our household, and we talk about those subjects all the time,” she says, according to People magazine. “Life is very much about family, and the family you choose. You can define your own destiny despite what happened to you in the past.”

Radcliffe doesn’t mind Tony snub

Although his second time leading a show on Broadway didn’t result in a Tony nomination, Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t consider it a snub, according to the Wall Street Journal. “It’s such a competitive year, particularly in that category,” says the “Harry Potter” star, who is currently starring in a revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” “It’s amazing to me that I’m talked about in those circles, that people think I belong in that company.”
