During a USAToday interview for her upcoming family oriented film, Marley & Me, with Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston answered quite frankly...
She goes on answering a light question with angered and frustrated compulsion, while Owen just sits back diplomatically...
Q: This couple's marriage is tested when they get the rambunctious yellow Lab, Marley. Can you relate to that?Aniston: Yeah. But it's not a happy ending to the story of that relationship. Let's put it this way: He got to keep the dog.
Owen dismisses a personal question and then evades it completely...
Q: How challenging is it promoting this big fun family movie when the public seems to be so curious about your own lives?
Aniston: I think it's ridiculous. There's just this insatiable need. I also haven't had a movie in a long time, so hopefully this is going to create something else to talk about and realize that I have a job, and I'm an actress.
Wilson: This is the nice part. You get to talk about the work.
Aniston: I am honestly getting sick of it, and I feel like telling people, "You know what? It's none of your (expletive) business." Seriously, it's enough. It's like we're appealing to the lowest …
Wilson:… the worst in human nature.
Aniston: And this is at a time when we should be so inspired and excited with what's happening with the president. It's a time to be positive and join together. We're just trying to entertain you, man. Don't shoot the messenger.
Q: And what about your dogs? Do they help you get through the difficult times?
(Wilson, who was hospitalized in 2007 after what police called a suicide attempt, walks out.)
Aniston: You're talking about the stupid stuff? Yes.
(When Wilson returns, the question is repeated.)
Aniston: They do help.
Wilson: Yeah. That sounded nice.
The interview is good in itself, but doesn't do justice to the book or it's author. I read John Grogan's Marley & Me and was absolutely besotted with it, perhaps because it's in tuned with my relationship with my puppy, Bullie. But truly, the editor could have delved deeper into some of the touching points in the book.
