Jennifer Aniston doesn't envy Lindsay Lohan

On our latest stop on the Jennifer Aniston press tour – her rom-com "The Switch" opens in theaters August 20 – the 41-year-old actress admitted (get ready, this has nothing to do with babies) that she doesn’t envy Lindsay Lohan.

Playing along with “Extra,” Aniston attempted to respond to questions in a rapid-fire quiz. When it comes to her favorite travel destination, it was a no-brainer: “Venice, Italy.”

But as far as what to always avoid, that one was a bit trickier: “Robbery,” she responded at first, only to rethink that answer and change it to “mugging,” which also didn’t work. "No, that's not true, because I've been mugged," she said. "That's a horrible answer. Oh God, I suck at this game. Next?"

Aniston also revealed that there are a number of things she doesn’t get, such as “enough sleep” and “reality TV.” As for who she doesn’t envy, the actress said – aside from herself – that she doesn’t feel that little green monster when she thinks about Lindsay Lohan. “Poor thing,” she added.

The only less obvious answer, perhaps, would have been Mel Gibson.

    Who is this "middle America" you speak of? If "middle America" is the Hollywood Hills, yeah.

    "if a woman is unmarried it means she can't keep a man."

    That's not what Gwen was trying to say. Stop jumping to conclusions. It's obvious that she can't keep a relationship because she's a self-absorbed little twit. That's miles away from saying that all unmarried women are that way because they couldn't keep a man. Of course not.

    Aniston can't act worth a damn. I don't know why this woman is famous. I feel bad for her future child.

    As for Lindsay, she is a talented actress but obviously came down with a bad case of 'child star syndrome'. Having an addict for a father certainly didn't help her chances much. I think she should take a long break from fame, find a much better support system and get her life together. Maybe give Drew Barrymore a call...

    If Britney Spears can pull herself together after having a very public nervous breakdown and come back stronger than ever, so can anyone.

    I think that Jennifer Aniston is one of the few celeb's in Hollywood that have got their s*it together. She is talented and has her head screwed on right. So what she doesn't stay in long relationships. It's her personal biz. She is one of the few super rich that middle America can relate to. I loved her in the show Friends and some of her movies. Some of her movies have been real yawners, but you can' win them all. She is very charismatic and people can't help but like her. I wish her continued success in her career. Great job Jennifer!!!

    jen is beautiful, she knows that, and just because she can't keep a man doesn't make her less of a person, brads an ass...obviously. i mean he just ran out on angie too, that doesn't mean anything, john, also and ass and a doesn't matter that she can't keep a man she doesn't need one. I'm a girl and i'd totally hit that too!!

      Jen already said so many times that Brad didnt cheat. She said it herself that she was too insecure and let her marriage fail. She just doesnt want to straighten out the rumors because she gets a lot of pity from it and gives her extra media mileage. Stop hating on brad and angie. The marriage was over otherwise she would have fought for her rights as a wife. I dont think Jen would have allowed it to happen. She let Brad go. She did say it was over.

    Probation progress ignored to help Cali Economy 🙂
    PR, Legal, Rehab and of course Tabloid$ all benefit.

    Her lawyer did show she passed ALL tests for non-prescribed drugs during her probation.

    It seems Legal Prescriptions were the problem. Her father had pleaded with the court to block lax doctors from prescribing her legal mood drugs for years.

    Turns out he was right as TMZ gushed when they obtained her probation report showing legal uppers, downers for "as long as she could remember".

    These drugs are Known to cause impaired and erratic behavior, and longterm use is a discredited medical practice.

    I pray she survives this mess.

      First of all, what does "Oh, btw, your nose just grew a bit more" even mean? I'm a liar? About what?
      Second of all, as pretty much the biggest Mean Girls fan ever, I have nothing but love for LiLo. It's just sad to see that she's clearly going down fast. She's admitted to substance usage and it's obvious she has alcohol problems. It's sad. No one is jealous of what she's going through or what she does. Bishplz.

    Who are you, the fly on the wall??? Have you ever been with her?

    Lots of people do things recreationally, doesn't make them Keith Richards, they could be Mick Jagger
    instead. It's okay for you to be a prude if you choose, but do not impose your standards on
    everyone else.

    Jen likely will be a b rated in acting and don't see that changing. While she is a nice looking lady, I have never cared for her acting. Lindsey on the other hand can act unlike Jen.

    Instead of Jennifer Aniston worrying about Lindsay Lohan, she ought to be worried about the BOMB of a movie she has coming out that Miramax Pictures just financed. I bet that rakes in a cool $5 million in it's opening weekend. A movie star she is not. A box office bomb she is.

      A bomb maybe, but she still gets the jobs and still rakes in the cash. Not mention having one awesome body to top it all off.

    The only thing I wanna know is, is there any chance she'll ever do a guest spot on "Days of Our Lives"? I personally would love to see her act opposite her real-life father John Aniston. He's hilarious and very good w/comedy. Last I heard they got along just fine, she just had issues w/her mother. Anyways, please Jen! 🙂 Maybe bring "Dr. Drake Romoray" with you too 😉

I support this artist with every fiber of my being and wish her nothing but epic success in all her films and endeavors – I wish her love and loyalty and many dreams come true – she’s got a heart of gold like Neil Young

    In response to "Gwen" and her comment that Jennifer Aniston "can't even keep a man" – honey, so far there isn't a man good enough FOR her! I'm 49 – I take excellent care of myself and definitely get the looks, and get asked out by mostly from younger (or way older) men – but I have this thing about only wanting the best for myself. I'll go out now and them, but, I'll be damned – as I can almost bet Jen feels the same – if I'm goiing to settle for some guy just to say I have one. Screw that! I've been divorced 20 years, and I refuse to wake up next to Mr. Not-Good-Enough just to say I can "keep a man".
    And Jennifer Aniston, if you are reading these comments from everyone, no one needs to tell you, but you just keep liviing your life the way you are. I completely admire you.

      Jennifer doesn't dump the guys, they all dump her even Brad. So I repeat she can't even keep a man!!!
      I also have been divorced 25 years and I dumped him. I do just fine being single too and have a great
      job and date often, but she is always whining about everybody dumping her and the first thing she always
      gets her next victim to do is say she can have his baby. How obvious is that, duh!!!!! She can't function
      without a man evidently.

    If she is so hot how come she can't keep a boyfriend or husband. She is too clingy and boring. Looks aren't everything or she would have a husband by now. All she can think about is having a baby, never about who she with. Why, if she really wants a baby, doesn't she adopt one like everybody else that is single. I am so sick of her whining about babies. She is just a spoiled brat who wants everything to be focused on her and she can't even keep a man, plus she is almost middle aged.
    Her only focus is on herself.

      What an intelligent response – if a woman is unmarried it means she can't keep a man. You just set women back about 100 years. I believe it makes her smarter than most of the "Hollywood Honies" whose self esteem is entirely based upon the man she is with.....THAT is too sad.

      Since when is the measure of someone's character their ability to "keep" a husband or boyfriend? I would say that she's amazing for not settling and she seems to be doing just fine. The media makes her out to be desperate but none if us know her. Keep your petty judgement to yourself.

      You are obviously one of those women who define themselves by the men they are with; and think less of yourself when you find yourself always have to be with a man. You are pretty sad. How does it feel to be judged by someone who knows nothing about you? You talk like you know her.At least you know her...and she knows nothing about you, and hence doesnt care about your opinion about her. Sad.

    Not that Jennifer Aniston is one of my favorites, kinda far from it. But I have to agree that the last person who should be envied is LL. She is an addicted, self-absorbed brat who can't act her way out of a wet paper bag!!!

    Jennifer at least has some intelligence. LL has ZERO when compared to Jennifer & almost any other actress. How did LL ever become famous anyways? YUCK!!!

      She became famous because she was a talented child actress She just grew up too fast and didn't have proper parents to guide her in a healthy way. The decisions she makes now are her fault, but she did not have a strong foundation. She should be pitied, not reviled.

      Actually Amanda I think she became famous because she slept with old men. So that makes her perfect for her last umm movie... That is just my opinion...
