Jennifer Aniston & John Mayer: "We Adore Each Other"
  • More from Jennifer Aniston, whose Vogue interview has been leaking all over the internet: "There is more to me than just a tabloid girl. This whole 'Poor lonely Jen' thing, this idea that I'm so unlucky in love? I actually feel I've been unbelievably lucky in love. I don't feel like I'm supposed to be any further along or somewhere that I'm not. I'm right where I'm supposed to be." Oh!

There is nothing you can control about love." [Perez Hilton]

All I can do is concentrate on keeping my heart and soul correct and then redecorate around it." — John Mayer. [People]
