Jennifer Aniston, Jimmy Fallon throw around Super Bowl smack talk during 'Lip Flip'

Jennifer Aniston and Jimmy Fallon played “Lip Flip” Wednesday night on The Tonight Show, and there was much Super Bowl smack talk.

The bit started off innocently enough, with Aniston and Fallon changing up their accents. (Aniston made Fallon have a hairball.) Then the Super Bowl conversation kicked off and everything got funnier. Fallon made Aniston a die-hard Patriots fan while Aniston made Fallon list a few of Seattle’s best attributes—like Starbucks and weed. Is this the funniest “Lip Flip” yet? Maybe.

Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow try to out-curse each other on 'Kimmel'

Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston spent five minutes cursing at each other last night, and it was all captured on Jimmy Kimmel Live. 

Kimmel hosted the Friends duo for a game of Celebrity Curse Off, which involves the two celebrities shouting expletives at each other until one of them runs out of expletives. Easy, right? Not quite. READ FULL STORY

Sandra Bullock tops 'Forbes' list of highest-paid actresses

For actors, the secret to big earnings usually lies in a prime position in a big franchise. But as Sandra Bullock proved this year, sometimes a one-off role does just as well.

The Gravity star topped Forbes’s list of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses this year with an estimated $51 million in earnings between June 2013 and June 2014, much of it from the sci-fi film, which made $716 million at the global box office and took home seven Academy Awards.


Pole-dancing with the stars


Aniston is a stripper in We’re the Millers. Paltrow pretends to be one in Thanks for Sharing. Are actresses losing more than their clothes?

The comedy We’re the Millers made $100 million this summer, buoyed in large part by the promise of Jennifer Aniston’s glistening abs and a hardworking set of shell pink lingerie. The talented comedian plays a stripper nobody much respects early on. Jason Sudeikis’ character (who’s pretending to be her husband) writes her off thusly: “My wife, she’s just a cheap stripper.” And when bemoaning her dirtbag boyfriend, even Aniston’s character herself seems resigned to her second-class status: “That’s what you get for dating a guy who dates strippers.”

Some male critics gave Aniston a hard time as well. “For young actresses to disrobe in exchange for attention is tradition,” Kyle Smith wrote in the New York Post‘s review. “For 44-year-olds, it’s desperation.” Mick LaSalle was a little more forgiving in the San Francisco Chronicle: “It’s not that she doesn’t look good — actually, she looks great — but there’s an age at which silly and flamboyant display makes emotional and aesthetic sense, and whatever that age is, it’s really, really young.”

First of all: gross. Secondly, I’m not sure Miley Cyrus, who basically played a stripper at the VMAs, was worried about making emotional and aesthetic sense. Yes, I feel for a 20-year-old who wants to take charge of her identity and sexuality after breaking out of the stifling Disney box, but grinding on a foam finger is neither new nor truly rebellious.

'We're the Millers': Were you (s)tripping balls?

Despite a lukewarm reception from critics, the Jason Sudeikis/Jennifer Aniston R-rated comedy We’re the Millers made over $26 million in its opening weekend, finishing just shy of Giant Cylinder Malibu (Elysium). Millers has its flaws, but it’s easy to see why audiences had so much fun. Theaters were packed all weekend with young herds looking for boobs, raunch, and Nick Offerman (not necessarily in that order) and by all means, We’re The Millers delivered. It’s the kind of movie that’d play better in a crowded theater when you’re not exactly sober than it might if you Redboxed it eight months later on a quiet Tuesday. There are plenty of movies like that. I remember enjoying last summer’s Ted much more in the theater thanks to an infectious audience vibe; then when I saw it alone on cable all I wanted to do was pick it apart. READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Aniston also wishes 'Friends' was still on ... so wait, why did it end again?!? -- VIDEO

When Matthew Perry guest-hosted Piers Morgan Tonight last month, he and guest Lisa Kudrow waxed nostalgic about Friends, the sitcom that made them TV megastars and went off the air in May 2004.

“I find myself sort of reminiscing about how much fun the show was,” Perry said at one point. “If I had a time machine, I would like to go back to 2004 and not have stopped, you know?”

Oh, we know! And, surprisingly, so does Jennifer Aniston — the most famous and consistently employed member of the Friends sextet. When asked by Access Hollywood about Perry and Kudrow’s second thoughts, Aniston said she, too, is sorry the sitcom came to an end.

“We’re all sorry,” she admitted on the We’re the Millers red carpet, while also acknowledging, “I think it ended at the right time, and it ended when people still wanted more.” But would she go back in a time machine? “I would too, probably.”

Jennifer Aniston denies she's a nudist -- VIDEO


If you can’t trust Star magazine, what can you trust?

Jennifer Aniston swung by pal Chelsea Handler’s show last night to promote We’re the Millers, which, as everyone is already no doubt aware, has everybody’s some people’s favorite former Friend playing a stripper. But instead of talking about that, Handler whipped out an issue of Star and proceeded to read from it that Aniston, along with fiance Justin Theroux, is now a nudist. Cue Aniston’s bemused expression, followed by a surprisingly-not-convincing denial.

Does Star magazine know something we don’t? (Unlikely.) Is this all just an elaborate bit to get you thinking about naked Jennifer Aniston, starring in a new sexy movie this very weekend? (Likely.)

Angelina Jolie tops 'Forbes' list of highest-paid actresses

She might not get paid as much as Iron Man, but there’s no doubt that celestial beauty Angelina Jolie is smiling all the way to the bank. This year, Jolie topped Forbes‘ annual list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood with an incredibly robust $33 million. Though her last big-budget feature was the much maligned The Tourist back in 2010, Jolie has spent the past few years developing, writing and directing flicks such as In the Land of Blood and Honey and the upcoming Unbroken, and even found time to film Disney’s Maleficent. You see, Angelina Jolie is so wealthy that she can basically stop acting, develop some very small indie flicks and still make money. READ FULL STORY
