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.
