Jennifer Aniston can flop all she wants, Rupert Everett observes

Jennifer Aniston Perhaps Jennifer Aniston would appreciate a break from the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie discussion, but maybe not the kind Rupert Everett offered in a recent interview.

Everett named the actress specifically when discussing how Hollywood promotes people it considers stars, despite failures at the box office. Stars like Aniston, apparently.

"Jennifer Aniston will just have one too many total flops," he told BBC radio. "But she's still a member of that club."

"And she will still manage to — like a star forming in the universe — a whole lot of things swirling around and suddenly solidifying into yet another vital, tasteless rom-com: a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula." 

That "club" Everett is referring to seems to be an abstract collective of power players who protect and promote their industry favorites. Though Aniston gets a dig, at least old Rupey is taking his medicine too — he's clearly not one of the chosen few.

Leave your thoughts on Everett's observations in comments below.

Comments from several people on here do not appear to be postings from the general public, but rather postings by the subject parties or friends of the subject parties.

Regardless, I like Aniston, always have. And, she is still laughing all the way to the bank, so rock on Jen.

Its really a matter of "taste". I like Jennifer's film too. It's hard to act comedy. Action and drama is much easier and typical acts..... Looks like many people still appreciates light and funny movies. It is after all relaxing.... Simple funny movies, simple and happy life. That's the reason why Jennifer Aniston remains in the limelight. Away from life's pressures, i like watching her movies..... R.Everett just express his opinion, so be it. Mine is different; like everyone who commented here.

Actually she doesn't always play the same character...she played in a very interesting thriller, Derailed in 2005. That was out of the rom-com box and she did great. No she hasn't won accolades and most of the rom-coms are feel good movies for renting rather than spending $20 per person at the box office, but have you even seen R. Everett in anything big since My Best Friend's Wedding (small supporting role) in 1997. Oh yeah, he's had a few voice rolls, still supporting and bit roles. He is just jealous of her fame and celebrity.
