film criticism by maryann johanson | since 1997

what he said: Rupert Everett…

…on the unending career of Jennifer Aniston (and all the other movie stars who endure as stars despite their presence in terrible movies that continually bomb):

Jennifer Aniston will just have one too many total flops. 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 romcom: a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula.

See, she’s in the club, the — as Everett rightly complains — the heterosexual-oriented club run by middle-aged straight men. The middle-aged straight men who run the club love Aniston, so she gets to continue being a star when, perhaps, it might make more business sense to give her the boot and make some room for someone who isn’t a pretty, thin white woman.
