Jennifer Aniston makes “sexiest” list with Atlanta film role

Jennifer Aniston’s role in “Wanderlust,” filmed near the Atlanta area, has earned her a spot on a Fandango list of the sexiest stars appearing in films next year.

Aniston and Paul Rudd star in the movie, which was shot largely north of Atlanta this year, as Linda and George, a stressed-out Manhattan couple who decide to move to Atlanta after George loses his job. On the way they get sidetracked in “Elysium,” a free-wheeling community where residents are content to wear nothing but smiles.

It has a Feb. 22 release date.

Aniston, who was spotted around town at spots including Ecco, Nava, El Taco and the St. Regis while she was here working on the project, ranks #4 on the Fandango hot list.

WanderlustFirst was Charlize Theron, in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” next was Sandra Bullock in “Gravity” followed by Kate Beckinsale in “Total Recall,” “Underworld 4″ and “Contraband.”  Number 5 on the list was Scarlett Johansson in “The Avengers.”

That list, by the way, was created by women who responded to Fandango’s moviegoer survey results.

A similar list created by male responders named Beckinsale, Johansson, Megan Fox in “This Is Forty,” Anne Hathaway in “The Dark Knight Rises” and Theron.

Fandango also asked its users to name the five sexiest male stars. The top five, according to women responders, was Johnny Depp in “Dark Shadows,” George Clooney in “Gravity,” Robert Pattinson in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” Robert Downey Jr. in “The Avengers” and Daniel Craig in “Skyfall.” Guys responding to the survey created a list including Downey, Clooney, Depp, Chris Evans in “The Avengers” and Will Smith in “Men in Black 3.”

We should wish all the Yankee transplants to Atlanta looked (and behaved) like Jennifer Aniston.

For the absolute life of me, I have never seen the appeal of this woman. She is a former sitcom actress who has ventured into movies and no matter what character she’s playIng, never, ever changes it up. Her voice is very mundane, expressionless. Her looks always remain exactly the same and this so-called Americas sweetheart, which has to be the most nauseating term ever, admits to being a chain smoker! Please give me a break on the Brad/Angelina thing also, can anyone just maybe face the fact now that Brad, along with the handful of others she went through, maybe just weren’t that into her. Let it go!

I hate the term “hater” or to say that someone is jealous, but Susan fits the bill perfectly on this one. Also, Susan – you are the ONLY one to mention the whole Brad/Angelina thing, so if you need a break from it, then look in the mirror, and then break the mirror to spare the rest of us.

@Susan, there are many other movie stars that were former TV actors that made the change to movies and are now well respected. George Clooney, Ton Hanks and Ron Howard just to name a few.

As a “Bruh” I dont know how the original “JLO” as in Jenniger Love Hewitt DIDNT make this list! Good gawd hove you SEEN this vixen? I think I’ve watched “HEARTBREAKERS” about a zillion times!!! Also for the record…SUSAN…. any man that has seen “Horrible Bosses” can concur that Ms. Aniston is a CERTIFIED banger!!! She also rocked the boat in that terrible Adam Sandler movie… “Just Go With It” I think.. As stated before, you ma’am ARE THE WEAKEST LINK!!LOL!!

Oh yeah, I also forgot to mention how …. Retentive Jennifer, sorry guys “Jen” to those of you who seem to know her best. I can honestly say I’ve never happened upon an interview with her where she didn’t seem to have a bitter chip on her shoulder, about what, not sure. She seems quite blessed to me. She always seems short and snappy to those that interview her, like she thinks Brad and Angie are watching her each time. Noticed it more than ever when she presented at the Oscars several years ago and they were in the audience. So sad. Ever get bored? just check out an interview with Amweicas Sweetheart, and see what I’m talking about. Got tickled when I mentioned she was so very overrated to my brother and he totally agreed, and that’s from a guys perspective!

Does anyone remember her in the first “Leprechaun” movie? You know, the un-scary campy teen type of horror. Total worthy of $2 if found in a bargain bin. Buy it…

My good Dr. Warren.
You’ve truly impressed me with your kind & gracious comment that exudes southern manners & charm. It would surely make your momma proud to know that her son posted it on a public forum.

@ K “there are many other movie stars that were former TV actors that made the change to movies and are now well respected. George Clooney, Ton Hanks and Ron Howard just to name a few.

But Jennifer is not one of them.

she is a total package. i could see how she is not comfortable in interviews cuz she does not like the topic. just because she looks high maintenance does not mean she really is. i’d rather look that than look cheap.

Susan, you probably haven’t seen “The Good Girl,” and “Horrible Bosses.” There are several other movies where her work is stellar. Jennifer isn’t really a character actor, so her hair etc won’t change that often.

One thing to remember, her movies are obviously making money. If they weren’t she wouldn’t be working.

@Old Dawg Agree with u.Plus someone should inform that envy lady named Susan that Jen’s movies have made so far $2 billion at the Box Office so that means that there are a lot of people out there who love watching her movies.So out of respect for all those people she should check her records before start commending in public.One more thing, i dont see why she brings up the whole Brangelina thing.Apparently she is the one who has to move on!

Could it be the nose job that she had that makes her look so much better? …hmmm. I guess the world would be full of sexy people if everyone could afford plastic surgery to get rid of the not so attractive parts. Give me a break people! And really in my opinion she still isn’t that cute and her acting sucks, YEAH I SAID IT!!!!

I love Jennifer! She is my role model, my favorite actress. She is so perfect, I mean, she’s very good looking, has a really nice body, she’s funny, she’s smart, she’s cute, and very pretty! I just LOVE her!

@Shay: She’s never hidden that she’s had a nose job: See People 2007 or her recent Inside the Actor’s Studio Interview. And if you’re going to get concerned about actors and nose jobs, there would be few left in Hollywood if we were to eliminate all those with nose jobs. I at least appreciate that Aniston has never tried to pretend – she’s admitted to the nose job, and she always says she works hard and eats very healthy to maintain her amazing figure – unlike some actresses who claim to be “naturally skinny” despite pre-fame pics proving otherwise.

@Susan: As has been pointed out to you, Jennifer has been extremely successful as a film actress. She’s the only female with 6 $20+ million openings in the last 6 years, and 8 $100+ grossing films in the last 8 years (including only non-animated flicks). So she might not be your cup of tea, but she obviously has an audience. She’s quite adept at comedy (see her recent Horrible Bosses) and she gave a nice dramatic turn in The Good Girl.

And I don’t know where you’re getting your info from or seeing these interviews where she’s so bitter. Whenever I’ve seen her she’s always very funny, self-deprecating and speaks of how grateful and lucky and thankful she is to have the successes she’s had. She comes acros very down to earth and normal given her level of fame. I also don’t recall her ever saying she was a chain smoker, but even if she was, she’s since quit smoking altogether this year, and hasn’t been more than an occasional smoker in years (see her own interviews and comments from friends/co-stars).

And as for Pitt and Jolie – you are the only one bringing them into things. Jennifer hasn’t spoken of either in years, and if I recall correctly the last one in the triangle to bring it up and keep it in the media was Pitt in his Parade interview in September and his subsequent media tour of attrition once his remarks on his former marriage backfired on him.

Her last movie, “Just Go With It”, with that total loser Adam Sandler (is he supposed to be funny?), was not only a waste of money, but a waste of time watching it. I thought watching Jennifer just for the sake of seeing her, even with the sound off, would be great. But the movie had the sound on, and it was actually PAINFUL to watch the movie. I thought “this movie must be building up to something”, but it never did.

Jenn A is fun to watch, beautiful woman I can look up too, as for “Just go with It”, hated it, pretty dumb, but loved her in other things, she may not be wildly mysterious, but she has a great attitude!

I don’t understand why people still relate Jen to brad and Angelina. Jen has moved on. Get a life, my dear Susan!

Jennifer has moved on from Brad….it’s everyone else who has not. I still don’t understand it, myself, and will always wonder what the hell he was thinking and why he “appeared” to be a jerk about it all – insensitive, I should say. But we don’t know what went on behind closed doors. Will she always love him? Certainly. She’s human and has even stated that she will always love him. But she has learned how to move on and be happy with what life has given to her.

JENNIFER is the winner. My vote is for Jen. She is a true beauty inside and outside. She is the best. I had seen that Jen had a better life without her ex husband years ago. Now she is a very happy, and healthy woman. Jen’s fans or haters should moved on as Jen did years ago.
