JENNIFER ANISTON HAS SPENT THE MAJORITY OF HER ADULT LIFE IN THE GLARE OF THE SPOTLIGHT. At the age of 53, she starts to open up about how she overcame regrets and some profoundly personal pain.
If we’re being literal, Jennifer Aniston is merely the girl next door in the hills above western Los Angeles. For a long time, it is what everyone referred to her as. The phrase “the girl next door” refers to a person who is friendly and unthreatening and is from the 1990s. However, the atmosphere is somewhat scary here, among houses hidden behind hedges planted to ensure that you know your position, through avenues of impenetrable iron gates. One assumes that in order to reside here, one must have attained a particular level of Olympian status, such as 30 years of being among the most adored individuals in American popular culture.
When the gates to her home swing open and I step onto a pea stone parking lot, I’m thinking this. 500-foot front doors, bubbling fountains, and pruned trees. Then, out of nowhere, there is a lot of barking and Aniston’s recognisable voice yelling at her dogs from inside. In tattered jeans, a tank top, and bare feet, Aniston presents the image of an out-of-town guest staying for a few days when she opens the door.
