When Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 41st birthday last year in Cabo San Lucas with all her Hollywood friends, it made people wonder what she would do this year for her 42nd that would be even bigger and bolder.
Well, as it turns out, Jen decided to play it more laid-back this year, with a simple dinner at a restaurant in New York. Â Of course, the Hollywood friends were still in attendance – Adam Sandlar, Chris Rock, and Hugh Jackman all attended with dates. Â The group was given a private room in the back of the restaurant, and according to witnesses, they had a fantastic time.
Okay, maybe calling an Adam Sandler movie a “real film” is stretching things a little, but you’d still expect it to do better than anything a pop star put out in the same week. Â Nonetheless, Valentine’s Day weekend was rocked by Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never, a concert documentary that opened at theatres nationwide over the weekend. Â Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston did manage to cling to the number one spot at the box office with Just Go with It, but only by a margin of less than a million dollars, which in Hollywood terms is nothing. Â Justin’s documentary is set to become one of the most-watched documentaries of all time. Â That’s where our culture has ended up, people.
Rumors have been circulating that Friends star Jennifer Aniston is planning on adopting a baby from Mexico, but she told Ellen DeGeneres that it’s simply not true. Â During the interview, which will air on the Thursday episode of Ellen’s show, Jennifer laughs about the rumors and says that she has no plans to adopt any childrenâ€¦ at least not right now.
Jennifer joked that she didn’t understand why the press was focused on her when her Just Go with It co-star, Adam Sandler adopted four Mexican children and nobody said anything about it. Â It’s jokes like that, that show why Jennifer’s comedy career has gone the way it has.
Toy Story 3 has topped the weekend box office for the second week in row, beating out the debuts of Adam Sandler‘s Grown Ups and Tom Cruise‘s much-hyped action thriller Knight and Day.
We feel kind of bad for the studios that paid mega millions to land Hollywood heavyweights like Tom Cruise and Adam Sandler for their blockbuster hopefuls, only to see them smashed aside by a bunch of animated toys.
Then again, we’re kind of amused to imagine Tom Cruise squirming after the worst box office debut for one of his action movies in 20 years. Let’s face it Mr. Cruise, you’re just not Top Gun at the box office anymore. All those weird couch-jumping antics and freakish Scientology spewing episodes aren’t making things any easier.
Toy Story 3 laughed its way into first place at the weekend box office again with $59 in ticket sales by Sunday, raking in $226.6 domestically so far. The Adam Sandler starring comedy Grown Ups placed at second with a decent take of $41 million. Knight and Day, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, crawled into a rather dismal third place with only $27.8 million since the film’s early Wednesday premiere.
Rounding out the top five for the weekend box office were The Karate Kid at $20.5 million so far and The A-Team with $6 million.
As for next week’s box office roundup, you can pretty much bet even Toy Story 3 is not going to stand a chance against the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse for the July 4 weekend.
