I'm with this guy who's so unafraid to… I think he's the first guy in a decade who's given me any kind of compliment, like saying I'm pretty or anything." — Sarah Silverman. [Page Six]

  • "I feel bad that people believe this kind of stuff or any random rumor that is taken as fact because 'it's on the internet.'

There's been many a time where I've given someone in coach my business or first class seat in order to sit next to a friend I bumped into. I really could care less about where I sit on the plane. It's hard to deal with the rumors sometimes. As a good person with a warm heart, it does bother me. I'm not bigger than feeling pain, embarrassment, stress and worry. Have you ever been lied on??? How does it make you feel??? You wanna tell everybody it's not true right? Thank you to all my fans who still love and support me even though it's not the trend right now!

  • "The romantic comedy is dead! I'm out of business! Back on Pretty Woman, they said love stories don't play in Europe and Asia. They were wrong. The business has changed now: overseas is the bigger marketplace, and it's easier to sell an action movie overseas. But two things I'm sure audiences all over the world understand: prostitutes and love." — Garry Marshall, director of Valentine's Day. [Newsweek]
  • "Ask me, 'What do you see when you look in the mirror in the morning?' and I'll be like, 'Someone who is more overweight than I actually am.' It's body dysmorphia." — Lily Allen. [The Sun]

Jennifer Aniston's life really is a tragedy of almost unimaginable proportions. It's hard to fathom what she goes through every day, the uncertainty and horror of not knowing whether or not you'll ever reproduce or find a man who won't leave you for Angelina Jolie. Now is not the time to ignore our fellow humans in need.

To help, text LONELYJEN to 90999 and $10 will be donated to the American Kleenex Fund which directly supports Jennifer Anison's recovery efforts. Thank you for any support you can provide.
