Last week, Jennifer Aniston did a lengthy and superficial interview with Yahoo – I covered the piece here. Amongst Aniston’s infomercials about Living Proof and Aveeno and SmartWater, Bobbi Brown asked her about plastic surgery. Aniston said that she didn’t want to get surgery, that Justin Theroux would “put a gun to her head” if she ever got any work done, and then Aniston threw some not-so-subtle shade.
“I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s**t into my face. No honestly, I see them and my heart breaks. I think, ‘Oh god if you only know how much older you look.’ They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age…I am fortunate enough to know women like Gloria Steinem, who I think is one of the most stunning women on the planet, and doesn’t touch her face… You know, to each their own; I don’t judge it if you do it, but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.”
My first thought went to Courteney Cox, one of Jennifer’s most high-profile friends and one of the most obvious victims of too much plastic surgery/Botox/fillers/etc. All of us know that CC has messed up her face. Jennifer knows CC has messed up her face. But is it off-side of Jennifer to throw that shade towards an unnamed “Friend”? Star Magazine says CC is used to it.
Even though Jennifer Aniston never came out and said it, insiders say Jen was clearly talking about Courteney Cox. “She can deny it, but who else could she possibly have meant?” a source asks.
Courteney, 50, has been open about the fact that she has undergone multiple procedures, including Botox injections, Fraxel laser treatments and Ulthera, a nonsurgical treatment to lift skin on the eyebrows, neck and under the chin. She’s also reportedly had injections to plump her face.
An insider says Courteney is used to Jen’s judgmental comments.
“Courtney is upset that she made the remarks publicly, but this certainly isn’t a shock to her. It’s happened many times before.”

Star’s source also says that Chelsea Handler, THE arbiter of all that is sober, proper and feministic, was “offended” by Jen’s pointed comments towards CC. But that’s what rings false to me. Allegedly, Cheslea and CC dislike each other, so this would have been the perfect time for Chelsea to kick CC while she was down. Eh.
What do you make of “Courteney is used to Jen’s judgmental comments”? Do you think Jennifer is legitimately concerned about CC or do you think Aniston is just being a bitchy Mean Girl?

Is Courteney Cox upset that Jennifer Aniston shaded her in an interview?
