What’s the best decision Jennifer Aniston ever made? No, it’s not auditioning to play Rachel, or collectively negotiating with her fellow ”Friends” for her $1 million per episode salary. Rather, Aniston says, it was marrying Brad Pitt. In an interview published this week in England’s OK! magazine, Aniston says she used to hold back her feelings before she met her future hubby. ”Then I was very sure that he was right for me and we were right for each other. There was this spark that wasn’t there before,” she says. And it’s apparently still there. ”I love the feeling of being in love, the effect of having butterflies when you wake up in the morning,” she says.
Her worst move? It involved a boy named Robert, whom she dated when she was a teenager, even after the relationship had soured. ”It took me maybe two months before I could pluck up the courage, and that was two months wasted,” she says. ”You must say what’s on your mind or you’re not doing yourself justice.” (Robert’s worst move: driving away Jennifer Aniston.)
The OK! interview isn’t Aniston’s only recent involvement in things British. She and Pitt are apparently avid fans of ”EastEnders,” the long-running British soap opera — so avid that they joined a petition drive, 14,000 strong, to get cable’s BBC America to reinstate the show after the channel dropped it in September. (”Bring it back” was the couple’s comment accompanying their signatures.) According to British tabloid the Sun, Pitt said earlier this year that the show had even inspired Aniston to start writing her own soap opera. There’s a thought that gives us butterflies.
