They’re just Jenny(s) from the red carpet.
Jennifer Aniston may have decades of red carpet experience, but that doesn’t mean she’s not jealous of Jennifer Lopez’s ability to strike a pose.
“I want to know what gives her the look like she’s about to be seething,” Aniston, 52, shared in her new InStyle cover story, revealing she thinks J.Lo “masters the red carpet.”
“It’s amazing. She’s almost stuck getting mad at somebody, but she’s just so gorgeous,” she continued. “She’s like, ‘I can’t believe I’m standing here.’ But I don’t think she’s trying; she fell out of bed that way. She’s a performer.”
The “Friends” star certainly isn’t the only one mesmerized by Lopez’s red carpet looks: The multi-hyphenate, 52, topped Google’s list of most-searched Golden Globes dresses this year, more than two decades after her iconic, oft-recreated Versace dress inspired the invention of Google Images.
But when it comes to posing for her own red carpet appearances, Aniston is still searching for her own go-to poses.
“[How you pose] depends on your stylist because they go, ‘Never do this! Always do this!’ I’m like, ‘Well, that feels weird,’” she explained. “I don’t know how to stand on a red carpet, but you do the best you can.”
Although she might not have posing down to a fine art, the actress has certainly had her own fair share of memorable red carpet moments, from her signature LBDs to her bra-less vintage dress at the 2020 SAG Awards.
While she switches her style depending on the event, she says she consistently tries to “connect” with photographers, some of whom she has “known a long time.”
“If I’m having an honest interaction with someone, it makes it easier,” she added.
But at the end of the day, it all comes down to a little laughter.
“This is how we do it. We clench jaws together, say fake nothings, and make each other laugh eventually!” Aniston recalled telling InStyle’s editor-in-chief, Laura Brown, during a red carpet appearance.
The interview will be featured in InStyle’s September issue, which hits newsstands on August 20.
