Well it finally happened: Jennifer Aniston has been a pop culture punchline so long that even the elderly have caught on! In a recent interview, soap opera legend and woman of a thousand husbands Joan Collins zinged Jennifer Aniston, America’s Cathy, by saying “When I was young, everybody on screen was gorgeous. I have to say, there aren’t that many good looking actresses around today. I mean, there’s Angelina Jolie and there’s… Angelina Jolie.” And then there’s MS. JOAN COLLINS! Joan continued, “Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn’t call her beautiful. She’s no Ava [Gardner] or Lana [Turner]“, which Joan should know, considering they went to kindergarten with her grandchildren. Ba-zing!
Collins also waxed philosophical on the foolishness of the living..we mean, on actresses getting plastic surgery: “Women who turn to cosmetic procedures look ghastly. They don’t look like themselves. I quite like the way I look, I’m quite happy with the way I look and I really don’t want to change it.” Joan then coughed up a lungful of crypt dust and settled back in for another hundred-year sleep. To be fair, Ms. Collins is married to a 44-year-old while we, and Jennifer Aniston, are married to a nobody-year-old. Who’s the grave creature now, hmmm?*[Photo: Getty Images]
