Jennifer Aniston's been all over the news lately, promoting FIVE ," a collection of five short films detailing the struggles of women facing breast cancer on Lifetime. Aniston directed Patricia Clarkson in a vignette about a woman suffering from stage 4 breast cancer. Aniston was also executive producer.
Aniston showed her kind hearted nature in the " Elle Women in Hollywood 2011 " spread on newsstands now. She tells a charming story about how she threw a chair at a male director. Thankfully she missed.
"He was treating a script supervisor horribly," she relates, "I was like 'You can't speak to people like that.' I can't tolerate it."
In the same interview she insists that she is not "desperate" to have a baby, as some have suggested. "If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. I'm at peace with whatever the plan is," she confides.
On the subject of tolerance US Magazine reports that Heidi Bivens doesn't think New York City is big enough for her and her ex, Justin Theroux, now that he's living with Aniston. Bivens and Theroux were together for 14 years, so her pain is understandable, but she might be taking things a little too far.
A friend of Bivens told US, "[she] wishes they'd leave NYC already. It's hard to move on, knowing they're in the same city." In a city of over 8 million it shouldn't be that hard to avoid your ex.
