I once saw a relatively famous female writer read at a bookstore, and someone I had come with leaned over and whispered, "She's dating [famous male writer] and he doesn't want to marry her, so now she's pretending she doesn't believe in marriage." The comment struck me as incredibly telling: it had the potential to be very true, very insulting, or a combination of both.
Now that Jennifer Aniston's engaged, it was only a matter of time before the gossip rags found someone else to label as a ring-chasing old crone, and Jennifer Westfeldt is perfect for the part. Why? Because she's 41, successful as an actress and director in her own right, and in a committed, childless, seemingly content long-term relationship with Jon Hamm's penis, and everyone would be much more comfortable if Jon Hamm was doing that with a 24-year-old model who has one IMDB credit as "Shot Girl #3" on an episode of CSI: Miami—or at least another person who was readily identifiable as a sex symbol. (Jennifer Westfeldt is gorgeous. But that's a whole other rant.)
