“The Break Up” Helped Aniston Get Over Her Own Break Up

Category : Break-Up, Celebrity, Movies

Back in 2006, Jennifer Aniston was not yet over her real-life break up with ex-husband Brad Pitt when she filmed “The Break Up” with Vince Vaughn. She revealed on “Inside the Actor’s Studio” that the movie helped her deal with her divorce and move on with her life.

“It was a beautiful human story about a couple breaking up,” Aniston said. “You know, I was slightly familiar on the topic and the issue.”

The 42-year-old said she thought the film would be good for her because she related to her character, and it might help her to move on with her life. She resisted the producers’ concerns over whether or not she was emotionally ready for the role.

“I honestly felt like, what a great way to sort of exorcise some of that,” she continued. “I was like, why not? Turn the page, let’s move on.”

Sounds like it was helpful to her, and that’s a good thing.

art imitates life in a positive way here

I suspect that working through, or acting out one’s fears, pain, anger, etc. is what therapy is all about,. Sounds like Jennifer got paid for her own therapy rather than having to pay an expensive therapist. Lucky her!
