Jennifer Aniston On Stealing Money From Her Mother And Terrible ‘Mother’s Day’ Reviews

Jennifer Aniston is usually the queen of sharing her helpful health tips and fitness regimens to inspire those looking to get her flawless physique. However, some interviews with the star result in Aniston sharing some surprising facts about her past. A recent chat involved the star dishing on some of the worst things she did as a kid and teen.

Surprisingly enough, one admission involved Aniston sharing that she occasionally stole money from her actress mother, Nancy Dow. The Hamilton Spectator shares Jen’s words on the topic when asked about the worst thing she did.

“I don’t know… taking money from her purse, maybe a dollar. I don’t think I would steal large sums of cash. A dollar went a long way when we were kids. It was for video games, the arcade, nothing serious.”

Jen Aniston is now estranged from her mother Nancy, yet she was sure to discuss some of the traits she inherited from both of her actor parents.

“She had a great sense of humour. And my dad.”

Driving tendencies also were discussed by Aniston, who says she drives like her mother.

“I’m a nervous driver. When I would drive she would always scream… maybe because I wasn’t a good driver.”

Jennifer was also sure to share about her response when she was named 2016’s most beautiful woman by People. She noted how things change as we age in regards to caring for our bodies.

“It’s funny, it’s a really quick transition from not a care and now all of a sudden, we’ve got to really be mindful of what we put inside our bodies. And how we sleep and take care of ourselves. You can get away with a lot in your 20s.”

In additional recent chats with the star, Harper’s Bazaar was giving insight into the actor’s views on her projects with film and how she has become much more picky when deciding on what roles she takes on.

“I really have to love something to be leaving my home, my dogs, my husband. The older you get, the more you realize that.”

However, that being stated, unfortunately Jen’s latest project to hit the big screen is getting nearly all terrible reviews.

Garry Marshall has made a string of films that involve star casts and involve the celebration of various informal holidays. New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day were Marshall’s unpopular precursors to his latest film Mother’s Day, within which Jennifer Aniston stars.

The reviews of Marshall’s latest effort, which also stars Julia Roberts and Jason Sudeikis, have been nothing short of awful. Indie Wire perhaps offered up the most cutting review of all.

The publication gave the film a failing grade and shares why.

“After the double whammy of ‘Valentine’s Day’ and ‘New Year’s Eve,’ audiences across the country were all asking the same question: ‘What can we do to prevent Garry Marshall from making another one of these things?’ The answer, it turns out, was ‘nothing.’ We are but simple peons, powerless to stop the completion of the ‘Pretty Woman’ director’s holiday-themed trilogy of terror. Lifeless, ugly, and vaguely evil in its gross attempt to offer something for everyone, ‘Mother’s Day’ doesn’t feel like a movie so much as it does a cinematic adaptation of Walmart. “

The publication’s harsh review shares that a way the film could have been made more appealing would have been to delve deeper into the characters. However, the outlet then stands firm that the film lacks reason across the board.

Unfortunately for Jennifer Aniston, her decision to leave her home to take part in this apparent flop was not the best one she has made.
