Just because she starred in a movie called The Good Girl, doesn't mean Jennifer Aniston wants to be one. And although her stint on Friends and roles in a half dozen hit-and-miss rom-coms have earned her an "America's Sweetheart" title, it doesn't look like the babe wants to accept it.
So do you think Jenny can go bad?
We've long touted we think J.A. is a fun-as-hell hon who loves her margaritas, cigs, sun, gal-pals and gay men (maybe in that order?), and that works for her. But it seems in recent years—and especially on the press tour with hairy-assed Gerard Butler—she's desperate to vamp up her admittedly less-than-naughty looks.
And when Jen showed up at the Madrid premiere of The Bounty Hunter, we felt safe saying she was definitely attempting a new skanky allure.
For a woman well-known for pulling off sexy and classy on the red carpet, Jen's homecoming dress gone awry was a fashion disaster. Too short, with a sort of lace ruffle for "modesty," and covered in rhinestone studs, the frock was exactly what Jen has been of late: trying too hard to be bad.
We get it—the chick doesn't want to be pegged into the "good girl" role. Add on top of that the fact she has a killer body that's just dying to be shown, and we understand if she wants to amp up her not-so-innocent appeal.
But there are better ways to go about it. Plenty of stars (and no, not just Angelina) can pull off dangerously sexy, yet still look chic. Or better yet, why not play bad in the roles she takes on?
It's high time Jen A. ditched her romance flicks and mixed it up. Why did Derailed have to be such a one-time type shot? We can just imagine the gal playing a true bad-ass villain—a far cry from Rachel Green or any other hopelessly in love klutz she's playing.
So what do you think? How exactly should Jen go bad? Or damn her, will she forever be stuck as America's Sweetheart?
