Jennifer Aniston probably needed a margarita-infused trip to Cabo with Courteney Cox after completing this interview.
Jen played reporter for Harper's Bazaar this month, interviewing her Just Go With It co-star Nicole Kidman. Would have liked to see those roles reversed, but whatever.
The ladies engaged in a Q & A, and the topic of conversation quickly turned to marriage and kids. Nicole recalled the moment she met her now-husband Keith Urban, saying, “Iremember thinking, Oh, my God, if you ever gave me a man like that, I promise I would be completely devoted for the rest of my life. Something that wild. I remembered praying after I met him that I'd meet somebody, if not him, like him.”
She also admitted to having total psycho-girl tendencies, telling Jen, “I'm one of those people. I would meet a guy, then I would imagine myself married and with kids within the first hour.”
But Jen doesn’t even blink and eye at that response, and says of Urban, “He's a total sweetheart. I remember him bringing you Chinese food on set, being such a good husband while we were all being silly and playing with coconuts. I'm so inspired by how you navigate this exquisite career and how you've incorporated this wonderful, beautiful family. I bow to it; I aspire to it.”
Sounds like Jen is literally a reporter who’s taking notes! She then dives right into the kids convo, asking how they’ve changed Nicole.
“I had kids at 25 and 27 [Isabella and Connor, Nicole's adopted children with first husband Tom Cruise]. I think I have more patience now but less physical energy. It's a trade-off: In your 20s, you're bounding around, they're attached at your hip, and you can just go and do anything,” Nicole tells Jen.
“But I'm much more of a homebody now. My roots are deeper. I probably have way more mental energy and a lot less physical energy, if that makes sense.”
Nicole and Jen then play the “your body is totally better than mine game.” Read below:
Jen: Physically, you are a masterpiece.
NK: Excuse me, you wear a bikini in the film and you look like you're 20 years old.
JA: I think that's Vaseline on the lens.
NK: You are a freak of nature. You have the best body I've ever seen. And I'm a heterosexual girl. You look good morning, noon, and night.
JA: Oh, please. I live in jeans and flip- flops. A good tank top, a great pair of jeans, and a great little wedge to give me a couple inches more that my dad didn't give me.
After building each other up, it’s time for one last stab into Jen’s nonexistent love life. Nicole turns reporter and says to Jen, “I like to ask people if they would rather have a great love that lasts a lifetime or an amazing career where you go down in history. Some people do answer that they want an extraordinary career.”
JA: “I know what I would choose. That's a no-brainer. I would choose the love of my life.”
Wahhh-wahhhhhh. Conveniently that’s where the interview ends. Guess Harper’s Bazaar had a reason for making Jen the reporter!
